I realize that there is a good probability that no one can answer this question, but here goes anyway. On the southern caribbean cruise out of San Juan on the Golden Princess, one of the ports of call is Grenada. On the excursion list on the Princess site, there are 2 cruise/beach excursions(GND-S Sail and Beach Party @ $49 and GND-R Party Cruise and Beach Exp. @ $34). I'm unable to see any difference in the excursion to account for the price difference and I don't have the excursion list that's available on the ship to research it further, such as the time of day of the excursions, etc. Can anyone shed any light on the reason for the difference in price. If no one knows, I'll just have to wait until I board, but it was worth a shot.
We went on the one offered for $34.00 and had a GREAT time. They serve fresh fruit going out to the beach, with steel drum music and drinks rum or soda. The beach is really nice and the crew on the catamaran were very nice. The tour guide gives a lot of interesting info on the way to the beach. On the way back we had more music, limbo dancing contest and of course rum (if you wanted it) or soda and cheese crackers and fruit. We are going to Grenada in April 05 and wouldn't hesitate to do this tour again. We had a great time watching others have fun. It was well worth the money and you have the opportunity to see a lot of fish when they start to feed them. My husband calls it sissy snorkeling ( he doesn't swim).
Thanks for the replies. Maybe I'll do one in the morning and the other in the afternoon and then I'll know the difference when I do this cruise again in 2005/2006. If I only do one, Im leaning toward the lower price excursion.
