Default Headed out-7 days !!!!!!

Well we are headed to New Orleans, Cozumel, Grand Cayman and Jamica in 7 Days. Carnival Inspiration Dec 2nd. Have decided to start packing today. This is Me and my husbands first cruise. Since it has been booked for about 6 months I go in spurts of excitment!!! I am past the "OH MY GOSH, WHAT AM I GOING TO WEAR?" phase, to the I can't wait to sit back and catch some rays phase.

I have really been reading up on this board, Have learned a tremendous amount of information, and am very grateful... If it was not for this board I would still be in the what to wear phase...

I do however have a question.. I have heard the Jamica, MO BAY, is a bad place to go shopping that they harass you constantly. My husband and I will either take a shore excursion, or go scuba diving. does anyone have an idea of what would be best?? My husband is a very good experienced diver , I am not that experienced, Cozumel is as hard a dive as I like to get.. What do you think??

Hi Brenda,
Yes, in Jamaica its best to do tour and just plainly say "no" when hassled about buying anything. We did a tour that included the falls, fern gulley and some shopping. Sorry, can't help you with the diving, but when we did Sting Ray City in Grand Cayman we went with a bunch of divers and it was pretty cool, somthing to think about, we used Red Sail and they took us to an area that was much deeper than the usual sand bar that most go to. We were just snorkeling, but it was still neat to see the divers under us and the guide would bring the rays up towards us too, awesome, hope you get there.
