I'm sure there are some good companies- but what if you got caught up in traffic or something and didn't make it back to the ship on time. Those people do not have contact with your ship! That would ruin everything. I'm a big time planner. I want to have everything planned out.I've seen some cool ones on the carnival site but I am hoping that a thousand dollars for me a boyfriend will be enough for 7 days of fun and a little drinking... that is, of course, if he stays clear of the casino. =)
Were doing the same cruise in September 07, carnival excursion seemed really expensive to us and you end up going with loads of people, read the board on your destinations, we have ended up so far just booking one excursion in Caymans for the whole day and includes lunch $60 with a local tour operator, for Jamaica and cozumel we will just find a taxi and a beach.
