Ocho Rios, if you've not been before, Dunn's River Falls. The last time we were there, we did a catamaran sail/snorkel. The cat was nice, but the snorkeling was not the best, nice just not great. Grand Cayman, I like 7 mile beach, but many on this board state it's too crowded and Rum Point Beach is much better. There are a couple of wrecks near to where you tender that are good to snorkel/dive. Stingray City is great. Cozumel, Xel-ha or Tulum are great excursions. Hope you have a wonderful cruise!

If, like me, you don't tolerate the heat very well then I would advise that you skip Tulum or any other activity that doesn't involve water. I was miserable at Tulum.

Like penny said Dunns River is nice to see and margaritaville is is cool as well in ocho rios. If you want to swim we dolphins friends of mine have told me that Cozumel has a nice spot to do that at.

I went to Ochos Rios for the 2nd time last yr, we did a NCL sponsered excursion, a river tubing trip. It was so fun!!! WE always do ship excursions in Ochos because it is a bit intimidating. Dunns is fun too...
In Grand Cayman we did an independent Sting Ray City tour, when we got off the ship we were approached, dickered over the $ a bit and off we went, really cool !
In Cozmel we went to Playa San Fransisco for a few hours, we took a taxi, I always feel safe there... It is a beach w/ chairs/ bar service a little shopping, bathrooms.... we usually do something out doorsy in the a.m. then head into town for lunch/ shopping for the p.m. I love cozmel... the shopping is like a sport there. I've never been to Tulum, it seems like a long trip just for the day...
