We just returned from a cruise on the Allure of the Seas last night
. Always sad when it is over. We booked Jamaica for a day from Falmouth. We received our voucher which told us to be to the transfer area by 8:30 am promptly, or they would leave us. Twelve of us were there, they got us onto our small bus, and we waited. There were four others who had arranged for the transfers as well, and they never showed up. We waited for over half an hour for them and it was kind of irritating. The driver asked us when our all-aboard was for the ship. It was 4:30, so he said he would be back to get us at 3:00 sharp. Once again, we waited, as four from our original group apparently took a taxi back to the ship early. If they are going to make such a big deal about being on time, then they should be, and not make those of us who are on time sit and wait. The resort itself was nice and the waterpark is fun. They did not take our ship card at the resort, just the voucher and then gave us a wristband. I talked to one man who was staying there and they said they had enjoyed the week.
Upon returning to the port area, the vendors seemed to be more aggresive than when we left in the morning. I guess they wanted to get those last few sales. I didn't see much else to do in the port than shop, so I'm glad we had arranged something.
