Can you pay with a credit card when booking excursions?
You can use credit card and pay with Canadian if you book with your tour op. rep at the hotel. Be sure to go to orientation meeting usually held morning after your arrival. You can also book with fellows on the beach.

You get three a la carts. They have a Caribbean, Italian and seafood. The a la cartes were nothing special but good food. I found things I liked on the buffet just as well.
