Thanks NC Liz for the info. I take it from your comments that you did book thru RCI ; we have always done this in the past knowing that we may pay a little more but feel safer for the reasons stated and pre book as well. Is snorkle equipment avail to rent at Chankanaab? Which reef did you snorkle in Belize? We have done the stingrays and will probably opt for beach that day. I am feeling more comfortable with the size of the ship after your comments.
Again, thanks for your input.
