Several places to shop and several places to drink. Over all clean with restrooms placed around. Straw market and stores to explore. Friendly staff at the shopping places and bars. Worth getting off ship for a couple hours.

Not a lot to say. Nice small outdoor venue. Music, both live and recorded most of the day. Beautiful Christmas tree there now. On the harbor so you can see the water and the boats.
