I will be cruising on the 10/6 Galaxy thru the Panama Canal. I've picked the most likely excurions that I'll be taking, but wanted to hear comments from those with experience.
Cabos San Lucas: Will take the Land's End boat & land tour if it leaves early in morning so that we can have some beach time in the afternoon.
Acapulco: No tours. Will go on own to beach and see the cliff divers at night.
Costa Rica: River tour.
Cartagena: Will tour town on own.
Aruba: This port has too many choices! I reserved a jeep (Avis, at cruise terminal) but will also try to include the Atlantis Submarine. Can anyone give some insight to the lines I'll encounter at the Avis check in???
Curacao: Snorkeling tour offered by cruise line.
St Thomas: No tour. Will take Red Hook ferry to St John and rent a car or jeep, (we don't have a reservation). We will then drive around the island and probably snorkel at Trunk Bay. (Is snorkeling equiptment available at Trunk Bay)?
Please comment about my choices (ie; skip the snorkeling in Curacau and try the liqueur tour instead).
