Default Shore Excursions - imput appreciated

hey everyone,

For my summer (western carib.) Mariner Cruise, this is what I have planned so far, If anyone has been to these places and liked the shore excursions let me know, or If you would reccomend something else I'd love to hear about that too.

Also, I dont know if how much im planning to spend is above/below the norm... ??

LABADEE - (may be continued to be re-routed - not planning anything)

OCHO RIOS, JAMIACA - Rios Highlights & Dunn's River Falls ($37adt / $27chd)

GRAND CAYMAN - Atlantis Submarine ($86adt / $44chd)

COZUMEL, MEXICO - Catch the Wave Snorkel Safari - (100-foot luxury vessel, Princesa Maya, and set sail for one of the most spectacular reefs off Cozumel Island) ($45 adt / $31 chd)



In total the shore excursions would be about $168adt / 108 chd, for a total of $372 for the three of us. Is this too much? should we spend more and see as much as we can?
Also, does anyone know what constitues a "child" on RCI? I'm hoping its under 18.

Thanks very much for any imput.

RCI Shore excursions are a waste of money for the most part. You can usually find better deals if yyou book it by yourself or take a cab around the ports.

In Grand Cayman I would deff go to Stingray City. If you book it on the ship it costs a lot...but if you are willing to take a chance on your own you can do it for about $25 a person. Anything you do will be fun tho!

In Grand Cayman do Stingray city. Its alot of fun. One year we did the semi-sub, hell, and turtle town. Semi-sub was fun, but Hell and Turtle town was boring to put it nice. Hell was just a tourist trap and turtle town was a commercial turtle farm which sold some of the turtles to resturants for people to eat, which we found out later not on the tour.
