The reason I say it was disappointing was due to the inability to hear and understand the guide. She had a charming accent that would likely have been easy to understand IF the speakers were working, or if there were more of them. It didn't matter if you sat on the lower or upper level...there was still a problem.
Nice train ride thru the area without the problem of traffic, since most of the tracks were behind villages. Still, the townspeople and children would run out to wave hello at us. There was a type of coconut/sugar cookie served that was VERY sweet. The train rides rough and there are no seat belts that I saw. The train has bathrooms on each car and drink service (soft drinks, water, and drinks made with rum available at no extra charge).
After the train ride, there is a bus ride thru the remaining part of the island and a return to the ship. The bus ride goes right thru the villages and towns, and the driver points out different things of interest. We even saw a monkey sitting in a tree, and she stopped briefly in traffic to let us get pics of it.
This excursion would likely be boring to children, as it spends so much time just on scenery. Still, it's a leisurely way to see a good bit of the countryside, and not the "touristy" parts close to the port.
