Hi Erik, I've not cruised on Celebrity, but had some friends who did. In fact, they were married in St. Thomas on their cruise. They loved Celebrity. The food except for specialty restaurants is included, and so is room service. We tip for room service when we order. No alcoholic beverages are included or sodas (Coke, Sprite, etc.). Every night is not formal night, so you will be fine in smart casual dress. Like dockers and a polo shirt, or slacks and an island type shirt. As long as it has a collar and not jeans, you'll be fine. If you don't want to dress for formal night, you can go to the buffet. Grand Cayman has some beautiful beaches that are on par with Cozumel. My favorite is 7 mile beach, others have posted about Rum Point and said it was great (I've not been there personally, so can't say for sure). Jamaica is a very pretty island, but very poor. If you're going to Ocho Rios, Dunns River Falls is a must. If you're going to Montego Bay, I'd suggest an all inclusive. Whatever you do in Jamaica, stay with a crowd and in tourist areas. It's not a good place to do on your own. Grand Cayman is very safe and very easy to get around on your own, if you don't want to do ship excursions. I'm sure you'll get some first hand experienced replies. Best wishes!
