Sail Date: 12/09/12
Carnival's tour description sound VERY nice, but the reality was a complete opposite!!!!
After 30 min ferry ride and 1 hr bus ride we end up in very small square with empty flee market where vendors were VER VERY pushy, so your first instinct is to leave. And that's what we did after few minutes being harassed by the vendors.
Then we were waiting on the parking lot (not only us, but everybody else) for an hour until our bus driver and tour lady returned.
From there, we were taken to different "shopping" area, which was about 30-40 min away. They dropped us off wright at the entrance of "Outlet" store, where workers were greeting us with some cheap necklaces. Store was outlet, but the prices were much much higher then in US. And again, NOTHING else around to go to see. So we basically bought the tour where they brought us to 2 "tourist traps" .
No swimming, no beach, no "In Vogue" beach club ...
After we returned back on our ship, we spoke with few couples and they felt the same.
It was such a wasted day!!! Thank you Carnival
