I will be on the SEA in late May and have a few questions. What is the cost for the Bistro, and are there other "pay" restaurants on board? How are the shows? If I want to snorkle at only two stops, which ones do you reccomend?
Another snorkeling option is a drift snorkel over the Pelicar reef in Cozumel. This is a bit off shore, you get dropped into the water, the current will run you over the reef to a point where it drops off to THOUSANDS of feet deep..The change in the water and the light shining through the water is like watching 2001 Space Oddessy all over again..but this time no need for the LSD!
Don't miss snorkeling in Roatan. It is considered the third best scuba/snorkeling location on the earth by the experts.
We have done Tabyana Beach and loved it; did our own thing a couple of years ago with a great tour guide, but we weren't crazy over the beach he took us to; I think we will do Salt and Peppers next time. We have heard wonderful things about the resort and it's less expensive than Tabyana Beach. Just something to think about.
