        OMG. I just figured out what QUOTE means!!!  Islandgirl910-I just started looking into this too.  If you search "Jamaica Excursion" there's a thread that comes up (I subscribed to it) and it's super helpful!!!!

          The music bar  would be probably more appropriate (less noise)

          Rashel was great!

          I saw you found the thread

          Second ques.- For the a la carte restaurants, I wonder if I could just reserve it for my entire group or if it has to be done individually by guests.  

           

          Thank you!!

           

          Happy Planning!



          The welcome dinner should be free you just need to make reservations ahead of time.  You can either reserve for them or have them do it themselves.

              Pics look great!  I'm glad I booked Marcia. 

               

              Another question for you: Did you have to pay for the pass for the other people Marcia bought with her?
