Default Mystery cruise due to Hurricane Dean

Booked on the Legend this sunday. Ports are supposed to be Grand Cayman, Cozumel, Costa Maya and Belize, this weeks itineray was changed to Key West, Grand Turk, Half moon caye, and Nassau I have a sinking feeling the same things gonna happen to our ship. When should Carnival announce any changes? Any suggestions for shore excursions in those ports would be apresheated thanks.

I haven't been to Key West, so can't help there. Nassau we did the Atlantis tour. We really enjoyed it, some people do and some don't. We thought it was very good. Grand Turks, all we really did was take the island bus (you have to schedule it through the ship) around the island . It will drop you off at all the points of interest. Downtown Old Cockburn Town, Her Majesties Prison, The Lighthouse. There are beaches everywhere that are just beautiful. Margarettaville is right at the pier with a huge pool. You can snorkel, swim with stingrays, ect. Half Moon Cay, we took one of the Glass Bottom boat tours. The waters are beautiful there too. They also have snorkeling, or just relaxing on the beach.
If you do get to go there you will enjoy it. The ports are just great.
Here is a link to the pictures to Grand Turks

Kinda hate to tell you what we did in Key West. First we went on a walking tour w/ a local guide. It was great and very informative but it was in Nov. and not Aug. Then I went looking for the local needlework shop which is what I pretty much always do - I had done an internet search ahead of time and got the address. Now you see what my DH has to put up with. But after that we went scouting for Key Lime pie for him. Found the most incredible stand w/ an outdoor eating area that had Key Lime pie frozen on a stick w/ crust on all four sides and dipped in dark chocolate .OMG! To Die! The main reason we are determined to go back!

Key West is like a town to the north of Houston called Spring. The original part of the town that is. I enjoyed KW the time I visited.

I think you may be surprised to find you are going to the same ports, it will be some 10 days from now that you are scheduled to be there, right?

Nope the cruise departs Sunday. I can't imagine the ports would be cleaned up by then. If I get any of my original I will be glad but if Belize and Costa Maya are cancelled I will be upset cause those are my Mayan sites, though I guess I could go to Talum instead if we still get Cozumel.
