My husband and I will be taking a cruise with our daughter who will be 9 months when we travel. We are cruising to the western caribbean, roatan island, belize and cozumel are our ports of call. My main concern is getting around once we get off the ship, since we wont have a carseat for taxis or in buses. How are the water taxis in belize? Do they travel very fast? Does anyone have any recommendations to further the articles which are already posted on this topic? We would most like to take beach excursions, but would prefer to avoid unecessary travelling on shore. In cozumel is it true there are beaches right by the pier? What about in Honduras? We took a cruise for our honeymoon 3 years ago and we stopped in honduras, I found the drive to tabyana beach along the mountainous road to be a bit scary, are there any alternative beaches that don't take that route or is there anything to do righ by the pier? In Belize the excursions mention that boat rides to the beaches are 45 minute rides each way - what type of ride is it? Are they speed boats? I may sound anal, but I just want to be prepared so we can forgo certain excursions if we feel they are unsafe. I look forward to hearing some feedback. Cheers.
This is a tough question. I have found sparse working seat belts in cabs when we travel. Keep in mind that if you're going to a beach, you'll have to lug the carseat around. Sorry not to be more positive or helpful. It is a difficult/unsafe/grey around when it comes to travel w/tots.
That said, you have to do what's totally comfortable for you and your child. Alas, most tour buses (even the Disney Cruise Line ones!) do NOT have seat belts for car seats -- how crazy is that?
