please help a first time cruiser plan wisely. We have a group of 20,
30-40 somethings sailing on April 8. we are overwhelmed at the choices. We would like some imput on the best economical plans for shore fun. we like to party. In Key West we thought we would do the trolley or train tour and then shop or bar hop. Are we missing out on a great part of the trip here? In Cozumel we thought we'd taxi to the state park that has ruins and snorkling available. Is that a good choice? In Grand Cayman we thought we would do the sting ray city swim and snorkel. In Costa maya everything looks expensive but we are considering the sub ride. If anyone has been on this tour and knows what to avoid please advise us
Actually all your choices sound pretty good, you just have to do what looks good to you and definately don't miss Sting Ray City, its awesome, a once in a lifetime expierence. Hope you and all your group have a great time! If you just want to shorkel in Cozumel you can grab a cab and head over to Chankanaab park, nice beach area and some good snorkeling. Then be sure to stop by Carlos and Charlies for some fun on the way back to the ship :-)
Y i don't know hat cruise line your going on, so i don't know if they offer the same shore tours, but a couple of yers ago in Cozumel we went on the sail snorcal and beach party, that was a GREAT shore tour, you boarded a 65ft catamarn, they brought you to a reef to snorcal and furnished all the gear, then you set sail for a private beach, after snorcaling they served bottle beer and margarets all you could drink included in price, they played music and everyone limboed around the boat, the we came to a beautiful beach with volly ball nets, hamocs, kiacks, beach mats, and a hut with bathrooms, they had drinks on the beach also still included, they grilled burgers at a small cost, you stay on the private beach for an hour, then back to the port about another hour of parting, i think the cost of this trip was $42 pp, but is was a blast...if you want more info let me know...
