Honeymoon beach was quite good. Saw quite a lot of Sea Urchins, purple fish,
blue fish, yellow fish, striped fish, star fish, etc, etc, etc. You can tell by now I'm
not a Biologist. ;-} The cruise we were on was the Champagne Catamaran cruise.
Cpt Jameson is quite a character as is swabby. Built the cat. in one of the Carolinas
then sailed it down to St. thomas. Enjoy if you go. Youcan snorkel, swim or just sit
on the beach.
Costa Atlantica, 3/23/03
Jewel, 2/1/10, RCI cancelled our cruise, (insert sound of sobbing)
If you want to enjoy some terrific snorkeling, book a pre-cruise, or post-cruise, trip to Key largo, right here in South Florida.
I live in Florida City, just north of Key Largo, and the absolute best snorkeling is right here!
Little known facts: the reef off the Florida Keys is the third largest reef system in the world; Key Largo is the number one dive sight destination in the world; the same species of fish, coral and all marine life are the same as those found in the Caribbean, but in greater abundance.
We snorkeled Buck Island on our very first cruise in 1997. It was very good, we even spotted a couple of large Sea Turtles. We have also snorkeled Coki Beach, which was pretty good and a lot less tiresome from the beach.
We did an excursion on the Kon Tiki about a year and a half ago. We were also on the Carnival Victory. We shared the excursion with folks from about 5 different cruise ships. The boat has a glass bottom viewing area, however, the small reef we stopped at didn't offer much to see. Our group had a good time as no one got trashed and fell off the boat. It was right after New Years so maybe some were still hung over. We went to a beach and swam. On the return trip we sang, danced, did the limbo, etc. The rum punch was pretty good spiked with 151!
