Johathan,
Shark Ray Alley is park of the Park system in Belize....Most of the dive shops have tours out for dive and snorkel. Myself....sharks are like snakes to me....I don't mind that they exist....but I want the away from me. But if you want to go play with sharks SeaSports Belize does this also.

Remeber its shark week on discovery channel

Later
Rick

Jonathan,
The Shark Ray Alley tour should be fun. It is offered through Carnival for $66pp. The Shark Ray Alley is near Ambergis Caye about a 45 minute boat ride from Belize City. The tour will also give you a little time to look around Ambergis Caye.

You can also catch a water taxi near the dock to Ambergis Caye for something like $12pp round trip. In Ambergis Caye you can swim (that is where the beaches are located) or arrange your own snorkel tour with one of the local tour operators.

Your kids might just like to go to the zoo, also. You don't have to take the the Carnival tour there, you can catch a taxi or go with a local tour operator when you get off the ship.

Have a plan, though. I have good friends who are experienced world travelers and they said that Belize City is not a very desirable place to hang out, but the Cayes and the tours show you the real beauty of Belize.

Karen

Hi
My daughter (19) and I (48) are also going on the Glory on Aug 16. My daughter was wondering if anyone is going in the age range of 18-21.
Also, does anyone know if there are booths at the pier to book snorkel excursions instead of booking through the cruise ship?
Thanks,
Alice

hello Alice,
I am sure there are some older teens in this group...Karen is the resident expert in the shore excursions for this cruise....I am sure she will chime in her soon. With Karens help we booked a wildlife/snorkel in belize that is not thru carnival.

Wow! An expert! I guess that's what happens when you spend your whole summer off researching your vacation! I'm hardly an expert (I've never been on a cruise before), but I do love to look up stuff on the Internet. (BTW- I am a technology teacher.) I'm flattered, Rick.

Alice, honestly I don't really know- but from reading and reading tons of info it seems that there are tour operators at every port waiting to greet you. If you want to know about a particular port I will be happy to let you know what info I have.

I just booked us on a really cool tour in Key West!!!! Figured the boys would be bored with shopping all day- so I found a waverunner tour! We get to ride on waverunners around the whole island for 2 hours! The guides take us to several locations where they stop and tell us about the nature or history. The best part- you are only charged $10 for the second rider on the waverunner and kids under 12 are FREE as passengers! So, we may only make it to Margaritaville for a little bit of time (darn!), but we should have a blast.

Rick- since you know Key West pretty well do you know how close the Hilton (our waverunner tour) and Margaritaville are to one another?

Karen,

Real close....about 1000 ft walking distance.


I will email you a bmp the Star is Buffett's and the paint splash is the Hilton. Which is a couple of 2000 ft off the Navy Reservation.

Cool on the Waverunners....Mom going to let the boys drive? In MO we have a 14 law...don't know about FL. OMG.....a computer nerd on our cruise.....well that will make two of us....NO I don't wear pocket protectors, but I do know my way around hardware....Got two win2000 servers and one Novell 6 server and a Linux box to play around on at work, with a 40 station dual network....I build all our PC's and use PC's for our Point of sale(cash registers). Nerd yes...but my wife thinks quite lovable.

Boys can't drive the waverunners- the driver has to be 18 in FL. None of us have ever been on waverunners before- so I know it will be great!

Rick- the map attachment didn't come through. Can you send again? Glad to know that the 2 are close so we can be sure to visit Margaritaville. Glad to know that I am not the only techno nerd! I'm more software than hardware though. I have the cool systems but I can't build them, I just know how to run them.

Karen

Rick-
No I'm not a MSCE (they won't let me take certification courses since we already have a technical support staff). My degree is in education but I decided to take my teaching skills into technology (my first love). I am self taught computer geek and I am working on a masters in IT. I teach kids (elementary & middle) in the day, I teach adults on the side, and I run an Internet business. I'm kinda busy- but in the summer I take it easy! PS- Thanks for the map- very helpful!

Jonathan-
Printing and graphic art is cool! I love Corel- I have the skills and the creativity, but I'm not a very good artist. I do often need GA work for my Internet business, so make sure you bring a business card with you!

Hope it rains this week in FL and clears up next week!

Karen

Karen,
I was actually working on a project for my elderly mom...she bought a new dinning room table...and found out it was distressed (made to look old and like cr*p), so I have been painting it today. finally got it done!

I caught the post to that website and was playing with it...while I waited for glory to leave dock. It is way cool....wonder what kind of cam or software they use to film it?

off to dinner

Rick

Good Morning Folks,
If you are interested the Disney Wonder is in port with RCL SOS berthed where the Glory was yesterday. The SOS was the first MegaShip that I ever cruised on....at around 70,000 gross tons....its central atrium set a standard in cruising. Not to mention that this was my Honeymoon and 10 wedding anv ship.

But my main point is that the SOS is much smaller on the cam pic than the Glory. The Glory is the largest cruise ship sailing from Port Canaveral...at least until RCL sends a voyager class ship up here soon.

I think that you first time cruisers will be impressed with the SIZE of these floating cities...I know I was...and still am.

Just completed a virtual tour of the Glory. What an incredible ship. Is a week enough time to see the whole thing? This is really going to be an adventure for me. I'm used to sailing on ships that carry no more than 1800 passengers. I am really looking forward to sailing on this ship and meeting everyone.

Vera,
My first cruise was in 1976 When I was 17 aboard the MS Starward...a NCL ship.
I think she was around 20,000 tons and part cargo at that time...carried 400 Passengers. Rather small compared to the Glory.

A few years ago we did do the RCL Voyager of the Seas.....and that might be to big for our tastes...however I am looking at the Queen Mary II....just to say I did it.

I believe that I will also suprise my wife with a cruise on the new Pride of America...when she lauches.....First American flagged cruise vessel in many many years. Her deck plan look great.

I just love cruising

Rick
