Thought are tickets were electronic, we got into town around 4 checked in to the hotel has something to eat. Then we decided to go for a boat ride. Took a while to find the ramp showed them our barcode on the phone when we’re informed we had to go to get our tickets. Which was not close into the mall up the elevator all the way to the end of the mall out the door around the corner across the street to find out they were closed. What was the point of buying the ticket advance ??? Needless to say we left and went back to the hotel. People it’s 2021 why can’t they be sent electronically
