My first suggestion is to read the articles that are out there for first time cruisers... Kuki does a great job on that. http://www.cruisemates.com/articles/firsttime/

After that... hit us back for questions you can think of that is not answered there.

Others here can suggest excursions. Which ship are you going on?

Not really, I've been reading a lot on here.

I'm really nervous about dizziness on board... and what to do about it. Also just excursion Ideas, we want to see different ideas for each place.

dizziness - Are you worried about getting sea sick? There are several thinkings you can take for that. One is a patch and the other is pills.

I suggest you pick that stuff up ahead of time before you start on your trip.

We went to a private beach at Belize but if anyone offers the Jeep ride at any of the excursion please take it--that is the best way to see everything and the most fun of anything we have ever done for an excrusion.
Belize was beautiful --the private beach was so much fun --there were shops and food (at you expense) on the beach and it was so laid back that we just relaxed and enjoy the peacefulness.
We stayed on ship at Honduras because of the drugs etc --but if you had several people who could be together it should be alright--- they have great shopping if you want to get a good price --they will bargin with you just watch out for the drug offers--that was rampent even as we watched from the ship---the corral is beautiful where we docked and they had natives dancing on the dock that was very interesting----
loved that
have fun and enjoy
