Default Water Shoes

I was wondering if anyone has done the snorkle at Coco Cay with RCCL. I would like to know if it would be better if i should buy a pair of water shoes or if a pair of keds will work just fine.

We bought water-shoes at K-Mart for about $5... it worked out great, we discovered the rental, for water-shoes, at Dunns River Falls was $3. We ended up using them at a couple of beaches.

Look around, K-Mart, Target or Walmart should carry them inexpensively.

There may be a problem finding those shoes, depending on where you live and what the season is. I know we looked everywhere for some in September to go on a November cruise, and no one had any leftover from the summer. We ended up buying some in the islands. I think the Keds would be fine but the water shoes would be better. Just FYI.

i cant find water shoes ANYWHERE. i live in new england and it is currently freezing. i looked in Target and they dont have any. i looked at LL Bean and Lands End's websites and for some reason they only have kids water shoes. im beginning to think i may have to sacrifice an old pair of sneakers.

Punkass, I know where you're coming from. I live in the Chicago area and have a feeling that I ain't gonna find any. I might try to buy a pair in Ft. Lauderdale on the morning of my cruise departure date, as the stores there should have them.

I've looked on the Internet, and I have seen a pair for $16 at www.4thebeach.com, but who knows how good they are. I'd prefer to try on a pair at a store first to make sure that they fit me well. Other than www.4thebeach.com, other sites have shoes for much more, $35 up to almost $100. For the little I'd use the shoes, I don't feel like forking out even the $35!!!

Anybody have good advice on what a decent brand is that isn't expensive? And which websites would be best to buy from?
