I just returned this morning from a 5-day trip on the Enchantment to the Western Caribbean.
Key West stop was brief [7 a.m. to 2 p.m.], as we didn't get off the ship till about 10 a.m.
There were 3 ships in port that day, and the streets were jammed!
I prefer KW in the off-season, and it's just not exciting early in the day. A lot more fun at sunset! :-)
We took the trolley ride, since our friends had never been to KW and wanted an overview.
Next day was Cozumel. We went to Playa Sol [beach] for the day. The weather was overcast & windy, so the sailboats, paddle boats, etc. were not available. I thought the area was pretty run down.
It looked like the people who had taken a Jeep safari had a lot of fun - I'd opt for something along those lines next time.
The downtown area of Cozumel has lots of shops/restaurants. We didn't have time to eat, but we did shop & bargain a lot!
The following day was Belize.
I took the "Tale of Two Cities" tour. Belize City is awful, in my opinion.
A lot of poverty, burglar bars on the windows of all the homes, etc. They never even let us off the bus to explore! From what our guide said, it's a very poor country with a crime & drug problem.
It was a 1-hour ride to the ruins - informative trip, good guides, but the ride was long. The ruins are impressive.
Friends took a riverboat safari trip and enjoyed it.
I think if I went again, I'd opt for one of the trips that takes you out of the city. Maybe snorkeling or something like that.
The ship itself is wonderful - great service, great entertainment. Our rooms were great too!!! We would definitely sail on this ship again.
I'm just not real thrilled with the itinerary.
