Reading most of the posts and RCCL site, it seems that you must rent the Snorkel Vest even if you have your own Mask and Snorkel. But no one seems to be willing to say how much just the Vest costs to rent. We prefer our own mask and snorkel for sanitary reasons (Bleach just doesn't kill viruses) Anyone got a figure?
We also use our own masks and snorkels for the same reason, YUK! We purchased snorkel vest for around $30 each. They don't take up any space at all in the luggage. Check out this website www.snorkelcity.com
I think the equip is included in the excursion fee (whihc also includes the review lesson & assistance) so I am not sure if they break it down by items--only time there at lovely Coco Cay ,we were beginners & rented it all in the cost. Now we have own masks & fins but seem to be given the vests wherever we go because the excursion cost is all inclusive. Let us know if find the answer
