Default WATER SHOES

Do you guys think I need to bring water shoes? I'm going to Cancun and Cozumel. I just don't want to pack something unnecessary.

I always take them. I cut my foot in two places once on a cruise, didn't ruin my trip but wearing shoes was tricky, and if I had water shoes wouldn't have happened!!!

Yes - I will never travel without them again. On a tour during my cruise in April, I boarded a speed boat in my bare feet. The deck was very slippery - I fell and hurt my back and broke 2 ribs. Was in terrible pain and could hardly walk for the remainder of the cruise. This could have been avoided if I had thought about bringing water shoes.

I wear sport type sandals that can go in and out of the water. They look nice enough to wear around the ship, except to dinner of course, but work well with those slippery water situations mentioned. I'm like you, I don't want to pack another pair of shoes when I have a multi-tasker that can do it all in one.

Yes, I just got a pair for my trip, and wished I'd had them on previous trips!

Yes, I always take them. Like Susie said, they can save you from cutting your foot in the water. Well worth the investment and the small amount of room they take up.

They are a must for me. I even wear them around the pool on the ship. Often the pool area has tile that you can slip and kill yourself on.

I always wear them on the beaches, you can get a nasty cut quite easily and spoil your vacation.

Now I am sounding like my Mother (God rest her soul).

Have a great cruise and pack your water shoes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
