We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express the night before, we were shuttled to the Oosterdam at 2:00 and were in our cabin by 2:25! The southern comfort was packed into our checked luggage, and all delivered just after the life boat drill.
We're hooked on the Neptune lounge! The extra amenities of the suite are WELL WORTH the additional cost. Our laundry, dry cleaning returned same day, reservations for the pinnacle grill, dvd checkout, all handled by the wonderful staff of the Neptune lounge.
The only thing that could have been better was the room service menu, the Ryndam had a better selection after midnight.
Half Moon Cay was gorgeous, and Grand Cayman was added back into our itinerary we walked FAR in towards town and could see some damage from the hurricanes.
Great bargains in Ocho Rios, but you have to be firm - best price for cuban cigars outside of Cuba!
Cozumel was busy-several ships in port. We did our shopping in the late afternoon/early evening and got better deals...
The priority dismebarkation was perfect, we were off the ship in 15 minutes, picked up our rental car and in our orlando hotel room by 2pm.
