Punch was weak. After I found something that I though was glass in my wine. The staff argues it was the wrapping from the bottle. Either way don’t argue about bad customer service apologise and get a fresh glass. Will not return. Attitudes stink.

We had the "catch of the day" from the menu. Was a really nice experience because in that day was marlin stuffed with crabs - really good. Also, the desert was excellent.

Your question seems to have been adequately answered by others. But I would recommend you walk there and take a taxi back to your ship. The walk, provided you are up to it, will permit you to stop in at Pelican Craft Village... More
