We are going on Explorer April 12th. Would like some info on Island Village. How much time to spend there. What activities (beach,water slide, shopping) are there? Are there lockers or places to put belongings while at water activities? Any comments would be helpful.
We just came back from a Brilliance Cruise last week and spent the day at Island Village while in Jamaica. The place is new and the shopping seemed to keep my wife busy. Everyhting was clean and there were no beggers to be seen. The beach is nice too. We rented a raft for the kids and they did have lockers if you needed them. There is a charge to go onto the beach, I think it was $2/ ea. They have security people at either end of the beach keeping the natives out. There's a Jimmy Buffet Margaritaville rest there with a med sized waterslide available for free which goes throught he rest. We ate there. It was fine. No compliants. We spent about 4 hrs there and loved it. Very short walk from the ship too. ENJOY
