Staying on the ship is a great idea! After many cruises, you will find that all ports look the same, and you get the same shopping and touristy stuff. We're sailing Oasis this fall, and unless there is a beach really close to the port (sometimes beaches are walking distance) we'll probably stay onboard and enjoy the ship.

3. I have recently (within a year of cruise date) had a total knee replacement, complete with a prostetic knee cap.
4. We are looking forward to some rest and relaxation after a VERY stressful year.
Having said this, we are looking to maybe skip a port and just relax on the ship while a majority of people will be out. Maybe enjoy the pools and not be as crowded.
It seems as though all three stops offer pretty much the same thing, so in everyone's experience, which port would you skip? Someone said in Belize we may have to take a smaller vessel to get to the destinations, and that may be hard on my new knee...then someone said being spring break that Cozumel may be over-run with drunk college students.
Open to all suggestions and advice!
