    If you're expecting real Maine Lobster, then it's best you don't have any lobster in Jamaica. They are more like bugs than seafood. No claws, very small tails, not much to eat.

    It's still is a zoo. We fly out of Ft. Lauderdale on Caribbean Air. It's a million times better in both directions.

    I can't say for CN, but the answer for CSA is no. There's nothing but sand and if you get outside the rope area, you run the risk of getting hit by parasail boats.

    That ice bucket in your room will eventually be full of nice cold water. Too bad they got rid of the carafes. It's not as easy to pour a glass of water from a metal bucket.
