Liberty of the Seas - Cannes (Scenic French Riveria)

Date of Exploration : 26 Apr 2011

Voulez-vous pour s'amuser? Oui! Moi! Moi!

Our first port-of-call onboard Royal Caribbean's Liberty of the Seas Western Mediterranean cruise was Cannes, France. I'm sure most would have heard of Cannes through its internationally renowned and prestigious film festival where the red carpet turns the avenue into a huge stage for the catwalk of celluloid fashionistas.

But other than the glitz and glamour that lights up this city every May, what's more to it since the choice of Cannes as the crowning venue for the global film industry was a political residue of the 1930s rather than it being chosen solely because of its foot in the Mediterranean Sea and balmy weather?

Well, let's find out what's there to see and do at the Cannes coastline of the beautiful French Riveria!

Tall palm trees surround and line the exotic city of Cannes where the municipal code of arms is a single stalk of leaf from the Phoenix Palm variety. That's the inspiration behind the Palme d'Or (Golden Palm) symbol of the Cannes Film Festival. 

A variety of shore excursions are offered onboard Liberty of the Seas and they can be booked either online or on the ship. Pre-booking online is recommended as spaces for certain tours are limited and may be full by the time you get on board. For our stop at Cannes, we signed up for the half-day Scenic French Riveria (item code : CW17) which costs S$87.50 (US$69.00)

We gathered at The Sphynx on Deck 5 at 8:30am before unboarding the ship to start the land tour. Interesting Egyptian themed decor with reliefs of pharaohs and hieroglyphs.
All guests who booked land tours were given stickers with numbers indicating their respective tour group. The groups leave on time so don't report late!

A small boat ferried guests from the ship to the port of Cannes. The short ride takes about 15 minutes and best place to be is at the tail of the boat as we are leaving to get a good shot of the whole Liberty of the Seas ship. After getting that shot, move to the front of the ship to get shots of the Cannes coastline.

The seaside developments invoked a sense of grandeur as we approached Cannes.
Immigration admin is not necessary so there's no need to bring along your passport. The SeaPass Card is all you require to get on and off the ship and into the various ports. The card is issued upon checking in for the cruise at Barcelona. It also acts as a charge card onboard the ship.

Ville de Fréjus

Upon stepping out of the simple port, coaches were already waiting for us and we just needed to look for the bus that corresponds with our tour number. Our Scenic French Riveria tour started at 9:00am and ended at around 3:00pm (6 hours).

Our first stop for the tour was a visit to Ville de Fréjus, a somewhat medieval town an hour's drive from Cannes.

So excited to be on the street of Cannes! The trees lining the roads are so neat and every once in a while, a wall mural pops up. This mural at the side of The 7th Art Hotel is a painting that depicts a cinema entrance with posters and actors who won awards at the Cannes Film Festival before. Film is considered to be the 7th art. We were actually on the bus and quite far away but the great 3D effect was so stunning and attention grabbing that even my poor eyesight didn't miss it.

Along the way to Fréjus, we passed by some ancient ruins and monuments. Fréjus is touted to be the first naval town in the Mediterranean. Top right pic : The grey section below the yellow block is where the town's tourist info centre is located. 

The 5th century Cathédrale Saint-Léonce de Fréjus is a gazetted national monument of France.

Nave and pews of the baptistry. The Fréjus Cathedral is still in use and during my visit, a solemn funeral service was taking place.

A classic French street lamp that is both functional and decorative extends from the brightly coloured walls of residential blocks within the town.

The warm hues of the residential facades and their cursive wrought iron accents made getting lost in this labyrinth a beautiful affair.

Enjoyed taking a peek into the lives of the townsfolk. My impression of the French is one of snooty arrogance, but the folks here showed me otherwise. They were friendly and welcoming!

One side of the town houses the residences while the other side bustles with cafes, shops and street stalls. The wines are soooooo cheap! But any alcohol bought outside and brought onboard Liberty of the Seas will be held for safekeeping until the end of the cruise. You can only drink alcoholic beverages purchased from the ship.

We were given an hour to self-explore Fréjus before driving back to the waterfront district of Cannes. Fréjus actually has a lot more to offer and travellers could use it as a base to venture out to surrounding attractions.

As a part of the Scenic French Riveria tour itinerary, Fréjus provided a nice introduction and feel of old France.

Hint of Cannes

Back from Fréjus, we were dropped off along Promenade de la Croisette (the equivalent of Orchard Road, but by the sea) near the port and given about an hour to browse Cannes on our own. There's a choice of chilling out at a cafe by the marina, shopping or do a quick walkabout to take a touristy shot in front of the Palais des Festivals et des Congrès where the star-studded film festival is held.

Well, you know me lah, very kiasu one, always want to see more to make my money's worth so my parents and I decided to checkout the sights. As we've passed by the film festival venue and it didn't raise any eyebrows, we decided to check out a church whose beautiful dome is very prominent in the city skyline.

Statue of an angel opposite the church we wanted to visit.

No idea what's the name of this church. I tried looking for it's name there but everything is in French so I decided to search online. It's strange that this church is so conspicuous but I couldn't find anything on Google about it!

The interior of the cathedral is bathed in a purplish-blue aura by sunlight filtering through the stained glass windows dominated by that hue.

The church has some pretty vivid statues of Jesus and Madonna with the Saviour as a child.

 Maybe it's the violet cast, an unusual choice of interior colour for a church, that made the space feel rather contemporary. I thought it rather clever to create 3 layers of colours within the church. I interpret it as a sort of allusion to the Holy Trinity.
We only managed to see this church during the free-and-easy hour because I sank quite a bit of time photographing this place. Thankfully it's not very far from our coach's drop-off point where we're supposed to board again for the next segment of our shore tour.

Scenic Coastal Drive

In my opinion, this is the highlight of the tour. Cruising along the French Riveria coastline half-way up the hill, we passed by properties of celebrities and the homes of who's who in the entertainment circle. As you can imagine... a hillside villa facing the Mediterranean Sea... you better be made of money.

Breathtaking views of coastal developments. Cannes is truly a metropolitan city by the beach!

The drive took about an hour with our guide giving a running commentary on the history and modern significance of districts and buildings. Apparently, there's an old car rally in Cannes where men and women would dress up like it is the 1940s. The women will bring along a dog, usually a poodle, and at the end of the rally, the best-dressed woman with the most beautiful dog will be given a trophy. So hoh mia (good life) right?!

Stunning, stunning, stunning! Throughout the drive, oohs and wahs constantly escape the breath of everyone on the bus as scene after scene of dramatic cliffs diving into the pristine blue swept us away. For the best view, take the seats at the right aisle (when facing the front of the bus).
I didn't put up a lot of photos here as the video at the end of this post will provide more footages and still images of this spectacular coastline. The drive lasted about an hour before we were alighted back at the port and the tour ended at around 3:00pm.

Self-Exploratory Walking Tour in Cannes

Initally, I thought we can only leave and come back to Liberty on the Seas if we booked a shore tour when in fact, all guests can leave the ship and explore each port-of-call on their own if they want to. We just had to be mindful of the timing that the last connecting boat departs the port back to the ship.

I was so delighted when I realised this and decided to extend my shore time. Told you I'm super kiasu one right? Mum and dad were rather tired so they headed back to the ship and I ventured the nearby area on my own before catching the last boat back at 5:30pm.

Making the best out of my 2.5 hours in Cannes, I headed down the waterfront littered with countless private yachts without an itnerary in mind. I wandered around and let my eyes take me places. 

Boulevard de la Croisette (Little Cross Drive)

Another interesting 3D wall mural and streets flanked by classical French architecture.

A peek at the buildings and lifestyle around downtown and surprised to find a retro barbershop. Bottom right pic : A local wet market that is one of the attractions in the area. But it was done for the day by the time I visited.

Art and Smut? The French sure love their girls hot and saucy! My eyes popped when I saw postcards of super hot French maidens with their titties exposed sold blatantly on the streets. I was deliberating for a long time whether to censor this pic or not, but decided to put the white bars across their chest in case I get charged with dunno what. You know Singapore is such a FINE city lah...

Lunch was not provided during the shore excursion and I was famished but I didn't know what to eat as I did my solo walkabout. Prices at the restaurants I came across were rather high. then I came across this Turkish sidewalk cafe and ordered a grilled chicken fillet and half a bottle of rosé. Food was so-so, the chicken pieces were very thin, but the wine made up for it! Feels great to just chill, get a little high and people watch. The meal cost €13.00.

Time to horse around after a late lunch! A carnival carousel sits near the beach while I'm surprised to see police on horsebacks prowling the streets.

Look out for these white signs with a blue man on the streets. They are directional markers that indicate the way to an attraction under the self-guided City Walk initiative that Cannes has adopted. Following them, I negotiated the meandering cobble-stone pathways to reach the Notre Dame d'Esperance, a provencial Gothic-styled church built between the 14th to 15th century. 

I didn't enter the church as it seems like it has been turned into a museum that charges an entrance fee. Notre Dame d'Esperance sits atop Le Suquet Hill and offered a vantage aerial view of the bay and Cannes.

This is ground zero where the Le Festival International du Film de Cannes (Cannes Film Festival) is held in May every year. Let me indulge in its French name even though the English counterpart is shorter. It's not often that I get to travel so far and this is the first time I'm in Cannes!

My "I've been to Cannes" shot. The stairs leading to the Palais des Festivals et des Congrès where the ceremony is held was undergoing rejuvenation for Cannes film fest 2011. I was there on 26 Apr 2011. The 2011 edition of the film fest was held from 11 -22 May.

After my touristy must-have shot in front of the film fest venue, I walked along the docking area for private yachts again to head back to the port. This time round, I took a closer look at the sail boats and discovered some rather interesting sights I missed out. Bottom right pic : The senior gentleman was fishing by the docking bay. With all the maritime activities, won't the fish be already frightened away? 

Weather during my visit could be said to be 4 seasons in one day. It was gloomy and dull when we first arrived, then hot and sunny, followed by a light shower before the sky got really grey and muted in colours.

Whale sighting! LOL... I'm terrible. But I really love the expression of this boy enjoying himself and having a 'whale' of a good time!

How can I come so close to the Mediterranean Sea and not have a feel of it right? Seeing how the French were swimming and frolicking in the waters, I decided to roll up my jeans and get in. It's friggin' cold!! But still, if I had a change of clothes, I would go for a swim just to top off the whole Cannes' experience!

Sentosa Play Pass - Play More Pay Less

Every once in a while, I like to pretend I'm holidaying in Singapore, to be a tourist right at home. My HDB flat becomes Whampoa Hotel and it comes with 2 guest relations officers called Joy and Rainbow (my dogs). Once a week, the chambermaid (hired part-time cleaner) comes in to disinfect my room and every night, I get a duo (my parents) who provides 'live' entrertainment with their duet of nag-songs. Isn't it great what a little imagination can do?! Haha.

Recently, my home tourist syndrome acted up again so I cured it with a visit to Singapore's No. 1 holiday destination, Sentosa! I can't remember when was the last time I visited this playground in Singapore's backyard and wow, so much has changed! For the better. I didn't need to pretend I was a foreign visitor, all the new stuff brought out the tourist in me.

Took the Sentosa Express train at VivoCity (Lobby L, Level 3) for the first time. I still remember the open-air monorail system with audio guides that was the vein that linked up Sentosa back in those days. Now it's this convenient air-conditioned train that takes visitors to the island from mainland in less than 5 minutes. A whole day train pass cost S$3.00.

After a period of major revamps and overhaul, new attractions have been added to Sentosa (other than Resort World and Universal Studios) and the organisation of the island's attractions are in my opinion, better structured and more accessible. The island is divided into 3 distinct zones - Imbiah Lookout, Beach, and Siloso Point.

Imbiah Lookout contains a cluster of closely-knitted attractions that offer a glimpse of Singapore's naturescape, history and aerial panoramic views of the Southern part of our country-state. The Beach zone, as the name suggests, is the place for fun in the sun and a chance to drool at gorgeous babes and hunks. Siloso Point invites visitors to take a walk through the historic military remnants of Singapore's colonial past and get to meet the inhabitants under our surrounding seas.

Singapore's most recognisable icon at the Merlion Plaza at Imbiah Lookout. This shot is a "I've been to Singapore" must-have!

In my past visits to Sentosa, the Beach zone had always been my only destination and I haven't seen the other attractions in the other zones. So this visit, under an invitation by Sentosa to experience more of the island theme park with the Sentosa Play Pass, I saw another side of this top-rated tourist destination for foreigners and locals alike.

After visiting Sentosa with the Play Pass, my conclusion is that it is the best deal for enjoying the island and getting a comprehensive all-in-one taste of Singapore's nature, culture and adventure!

The 1-day weekend Sentosa Play Pass costs S$69.90 (adult) and S$51.90 (child) and it covers entrance fees and equipment rental for 13 attractions! The pass can be used from 9am to 7pm. Total price of the attractions if the tickets were bought individually - S$159 (adult), S$125 (child). It's more than 60% in savings!

The Sentosa Play Pass covers costs for enjoying 13 attractions on the island spanning the Imbiah Lookout, Beach, and Fort Siloso zones. It provides a good mix of natural environment appreciation, historic learning journeys, and adrenaline-pumping action! You are only limited by time and energy!

I didn't manage to cover all 13 attractions. Prior to this Play Pass excursion, I did some math... The pass can be used from 9am to 7pm. That's 10 hours (600 minutes) divided by 13 attractions. That gives me about 46 minutes per attraction. Taking out time for commuting between attractions, queue time, lunch, and toilet breaks, essentially I'm left with 35 minutes per attraction.

So it is possible to cover all 13, but that's too much of a rush. The great thing about the Play Pass is that it allows you the flexibility to control your time and not limited by the time allocation of a guided tour. I managed to cover 8 attractions but even with just 8, I calculated that the total ticket prices for these attractions have already far exceeded the cost of the Play Pass' S$69.90 tag. Phew! Didn't lugi (Malay for losing out). Now let's go explore the 8 fun stuff Siow Har and I did...

Sentosa Nature Discovery
Individual Ticket Price : S$8.00
Opening Hours : 9:00 am - 6:00 pm

Although I didn't cover all 13 attractions, I must qualify that that's because I spent quite a lot of time at some of the attractions to take photos. One of the places I sunk a lot of time into was the Sentosa Nature Discovery trail which includes the Butterfly Park and Insect Kingdom. If you enjoy nature photography like I do, this trail can yield some pretty rewarding shots.

I arrived in Sentosa at about 9.45 am and the nature trail was my first stop as the morning light was preferred for nature photography and bugs are more active. It's free to enter the Sentosa Nature Discovery centre but the Play Pass can be utilised for a guided tour at 2.30 pm and 4.30 pm.

The centre itself is very simple with static posters talking about the geological heritage and ecology of Singapore with some artefacts of animals and insects.

Torch ginger flower and the underside of the massive fan palm leaf.

Didn't take the guided tour so spent only a short time here before heading to one of my favouritest nature photographic subjects - butterflies and bugs!

Butterfly Park & Insect Kingdom
Individual Ticket Price : S$16 (adult) / S$10 (child)
Opening Hours : 9:00 am - 6:00 pm

The Sentosa Butterfly Park and Insect Kingdom is made up of 3 parts - butterfly garden, aviary and insectarium. Here is a chance to get upclose and personal with the fairies of nature, colourful birds and creepy crawlies.

The butterfly enclosure is a cosy, rustic space that is home to a variety of tropical butterfly species. 

A newborn Paper Kite Butterfly (a.k.a. Rice Paper and Large Tree Nymph) emerges from cocoons that have a resplendent golden hue.

Mystic blue luminescence of the Ulysses Butterfly. This species of butterfly was my favourite when I collected insect specimens during my childhood. Before I learnt its actual name, I referred to it as the Turquoise Blue Swallowtail.

A pair of mating Ulysses butterflies. It's interesting that their underside is so dull compared to the electric blue when their wings are opened. The male Ulysses is reportedly attracted to all things blue, which they mistake for a female.

When a butterfly lands on you, it is not a sign that you possess Snow White's charm but that the insect is feasting on salt from your perspiration. But of course, the feeling of a delicate butterfly trusting you would not hurt it is magical! 

Crossing from the butterfly enclosure, we came into the aviary which is again, rather concise. Here, we walked amongst colourful parakeets, parrots and spotted necked doves.

Brilliant blue-green remiges of a parrot. The colours of bird feathers are affected by pigments and the feather's structure which will determine how it refracts light. I remember being told that there are no green parrots but rather, the effect of yellow feathers overlaying a structural blue refraction. Hence, the parrot appears green.

A giant Stag Beetle which the insectarium keeper has very kindly taken out of the glass case for us to take closer pictures. The protruding incisor-like mandibles look like they can give a nasty bite. Yikes!

From the aviary, we entered a passageway lined with glass cases on the wall showcasing live bugs, beetles and mantises. A large collection of the live crawlies belonged to the giant Stage Beetle so there wasn't much to see. Quite a few of the cases were also empty. Perhaps the new specimens haven't arrived yet.

There were also 2 dark tanks which I believed were for showcasing fluorescent scorpions. They were empty too and I can't find the switch to turn on the ultraviolet lights that these displays usually come with.

Coming out of the live insects lair, we entered the museum portion of Insect Kingdom. Here, hundreds of specimens are on display with some of the most bizarre and beautiful bugs I've ever seen. I could've spent a whole day in this place admiring the wonderful designs of these small creatures.

This is a very, very rare specimen of gynandromorphism in butterflies. A gynandromorph is an organism that displays both male and female characteristics in one body. I think in human terms, it's a tranny / dyke butterfly. The chance of finding a gynandromorph is 1 in a million!

Scary eyes used as defense mechanisms to scare away predators, but I thought they looked rather comical. The kungfu mantis in the right photo really cracked me up!

Say "zulu wakaka" and meet the Goliath Beetle from Africa, one of the world's largest beetles in terms of size and weight. Featuring beautiful designs that resembled a warriors shield, the long-horned Macrodontia Cervicornis can reach up to 17 cm in length!

Don't know how long I got lost in the world of insects. While the Sentosa Butterfly Park and Insect Kingdom fascinated me, I can't help comparing it with the Butterfly Farm in Penang which is much better in terms of ambience and landscaping. Plus some of the more docile preying mantises there were openly displayed on plants so visitors can actually touch and hold them.

4D Experiential Shows
Individual Ticket Price : S$12 - S$18 (adult) / S$11 - S$12 (child) per show
Opening Hours : 10:00 am - 9:00 pm

After sweating it out with nature, we decided to head for the three 4D Magix shows hoping to just sit and relax while enjoying some air-con. Little did we expect, Siow Har and I have just stepped onto an adventure of the senses! These shows were not meant for passive viewing...

Synergising 3D cinematographic technology with motion simulating seats and fixtures, the 4D Magix cluster of show (Pirates), ride (Extreme Log Ride) and game (Desperados) takes us on a thrilling adventure that had Siow Har squirming in fear and me shouting till I'm rather hoarse.

The shows run at scheduled intervals of about 15 - 20 minutes so the queue wasn't too long to get in to each of them. At the Pirates and Log Ride theatrettes, there are interesting pre-shows that kept us entertained while we waited.

Our favourite was Pirates, a short 4D movie with lots of laughs and surprises that made me jump at my seat twice. I shan't reveal the surprises and spoil the fun but it's definitely worth checking out!

As for the Extreme Log Ride, do not pull or adjust your seat belt once the show has started as it will cause the show to stop. A kid in our seat cabin pulled the seat belt shortly into the ride and it just came to a complete halt. The lights came on and we had to restart the ride again.
Images of Singapore
Individual Ticket Price : S$10 (adult) / S$7 (child)
Opening Hours : 9:00 am - 7:00 pm

From nature and adventure, our next stop was to steep ourselves in culture at the Images of Singapore gallery. Housed within a restored colonial lodge left on the island, the gallery is a must-see as it is a very well thought out historic journey that traced the major events and transformation of Singapore from a small fishing village to the nation's independence on 9 August 1965 to the metropolis it is today.

As I'm in the exhibition / gallery / museum line of work apart from insurance, I enjoy visiting such places to see the latest in exhibitory techniques and technology as well as to satisfy my anthropological curiousity. I'm naturally quite kaypoh (busybody) and love to poke my nose to sniff around how things were to understand why things are the way they are now.

What I really love about Images of Singapore is the amazing life-size replicas, incredible sets and solid staging. Everywhere we went, it's as if we stepped back in time and the transition from era to era is seamless. It's like walking through a time tunnel with yester-year scenes and activities brought to life.

The exploration of Singapore's past began with a telling of the early trade beginnings that led to the establishment of this small country as an important maritime port. The show featured innovative use of junk ship sails as projection screens and a projection on a smoke. So cool!

Siow Har posing as a lady of the street. Apart from working as Ma Jie or Samsui Woman, early female Chinese immigrants also worked as prostitutes with many brothels set up around the Tanjong Pagar / Keong Siak Street area. The men who came to Singapore worked as hard labourers in the form of shipyard coolies or rickshaw pullers. And that's what I'm trying to portray although I'm too fat to be a coolie as many were skinny and malnourished.

Life-like wax figures and actual scale reconstructions of olden day scenes made this gallery really special for immersing in the lives of our forefathers and reliving some of the familiar memories in my childhood. There are no fanciful digital exhibition technologies but that's the nice thing, it thugs at the heart strings.

I love it here because the gallery has none of those irritating 'Do not touch' signs. It really felt like I walked into the lives of the different races and I can touch and feel the artefacts. This gallery is great for cam whoring!

Left pic : "Tolong ibu tolong! Saya jalan besar percuma istimewa, lotong, mee siam, nasi lemak!" (That's about most of the Malay words I have in me.)
Right pic : Old lady thinking to herself in Cantonese, "Yit gor say chai bao gom pak gua!" (This guy is so busybody!)

Great attention to details. This wall symbolising the Japanese occupation of Singapore during World War II (1942 - 1945) even has bullet holes! I pretended to be shot. How? My expression can pass or not? Heh heh...

Majulah Singapura! Images of Singapore will help foreigner visitors learn about history and heritage of our country and inspire a sense of pride in Singaporeans for what we've achieved as a small nation against great odds; an ethnically diverse society as one family.

Tiger Sky Tower
Individual Ticket Price : S$15 (adult) / S$10 (child)
Opening Hours : 9:00 am - 9:00 pm

Less than a minute away from Images of Singapore is the Tiger Sky Tower which offers a 360-degrees vantage view of Sentosa and the Southern part of Singapore.

The sky tower reaches up to 50 storeys high and rotates during the acension so we get a all-round bird's eye view of the surrounding. The view is priceless and the feeling is pretty awesome!

The whole ride up and down lasts about 10 minutes. Kinda brief. You may want to plan your time up around sunset to capture the dusking hues. We went up around 5:45 pm.

Skyline Luge & Skyride
Individual Ticket Price : S$8
Opening Hours : 10:00 am - 9:30 pm

Our final stop was the Skyline Luge and Skyride. Initially I thought this would be just some lame ass slide with the thrill factor of watching ice melt. But having gone on it, it's sure one hell of a ride!

The luge is basically a ride downhill on a plastic sledge with wheels. It is very easily to operate and prior to zooming off, instructions are given its operation. It's so simple that if I can learn it (considering that my previous driving instructor gave up on teaching me how to drive), anyone can. Even kids.

There are supposedly 2 routes to take - Beach and Dragon Trail. I took the Dragon Trail although I think both leads to the same end point. In case you think the ride is granny pushing a baby stroller, let me assure you it's not! If you're a speed devil (watch yours and others safety), you can let it rip and go really fast! But of course, that means your ride will end very soon.

Alternating between slow and fast speeds, the ride was over for me in what seemed like 3 minutes. The Play Pass doesn't cover it but I think you can buy tickets for unlimited rides on the luge. When I saw the sign for it, I scoffed thinking who would want to ride this thing more than once. I was wrong. This bugger thrills!

What goes down, must come up. Ha. Upon reaching the bottom of the hill which is around the beach area, we took the Skyride back up to Imbiah Lookout. Now, the staff at the end point are pretty fierce so don't you go around trying to take photos of partner or friends before they get off their luge here.

While the Skyride is very safe, it still sent some chills for being suspended so high up. Especially when the whole system intentionally stalled for a while to 'scare' everyone. Okay, I admit, I'm wussy when it comes to not having my feet on the ground.

Oh yeah, love the excitement! Nature, culture, adventure! 

Did you make it to this far in this exceedingly long post? I only covered 8 attractions. Can you imagine if I did all 13?!

I haven't been back to do the touristy stuff in Sentosa for a long time and I must say, the improvements are impressive although I think some of the attractions may be a little pricey in terms of the value they offered. By making that statement, I'm comparing them to other similar attractions I've encountered overseas. But of course, there are those attractions that are worth more than the admission charges.

All in all, having experienced the convenience of the Play Pass (you just need to pay once for the pass instead of having to go to each attraction's ticket booth to buy tickets) and considering the cost of it, in my humble opinion, I would strongly recommend that visitors get it for ease of visiting theattractions and most importantly, great cost savings. The Play Pass is so much more economical and a great way to play more but pay less!
