Default Favorite Itinerary

Hi All,

Trying to determine what should be my next cruise. I have been to the following places: Catalina Island, Ensenada, Cozumel, Belize, Roatan, Grand Cayman, Montego Bay, Falmouth, Labadee, Nassau, St. Thomas, St. Marten.

I will be bringing a 3 year old so I prefer to leave from Fort Lauderdale, Miami, or Tampa. Maybe Port Canaveral as well.

What is your favorite intinerary?

Thanks,
Jeff

You need child friendly tour options ad the little one will tucker out quickly.
Grand Cayman has the Turtlle Farm that's kid friendly and Nassau, has Atlantis, with, The Dig, and, Aquarium, which kids love..

I am leaning towards an eastern with Nassau as a real highlight..Not that 3 yrs olds like a carriage, but a lightweight umbrolla, may help.

I'm not seeing Aruba, Curacao, Grand Turk, or La Romana on your list. You need to be looking at a Southern Caribbean cruise. We have done 5 cruises now and the Southern was our favorite thus far. I can't speak for activities for your children, but you MUST see these ports.

The southern is my favorite itinerary as well..I do wish Martinique,and Caracas would come back as ports of call on RCI & Carnival.

Looks like you haven't been to HMC or Grand Turk. I love both.

My favorite itineray includes any port that the ship can actually dock at. I hate taking a tender. Wastes to much valuable time.

We love the Southern Caribbean as well. It seems to be more port intensive. You visit several Islands with one maybe two sea days. The problem with me is that I enjoy the sea days just as much as I enjoy the port days. Enjoy.

When you can book a southern from Florida, it's such a plus... more days!! Leaving from San Juan, gives you a week,and a day at sea in the beginning means you leave the ship dragging. I always prefer to have that sea day at the end.
