Not the exact amount, but I seem to recall it being in the $75 USD range PER PERSON including a tip. We didn't feel that was excessive considering that we were being driven approximately 70 miles.

I did a 9 day cruise there in late August, and it really wasn't as bad humidity-wise as I thought it might be. It was plenty hot, but not unbearable.

I dislike the late seating in the traditional dining room because it seems like we never got out of the dining room until close to 10PM, if not later if we had really chatty tablemates. By then I was...

Personally I really like all of them, and would love an itinerary that includes all of them. The Eastern and Southern Caribbean itineraries and ports are much nicer than the Western.
