My husband and I are getting ready to go on the Western Caribbean cruise with RCL. We are stopping in Labadee, Ocho Rios, Grand Cayman, and Cozumel. We are concerned at places such as Labadee that we are spending an hour or so on the walking tour and then some time on the beach in the afternoon. I HATE carrying any more than I need to and usually only carry a hip pack, but we're not sure if we need to bring swim stuff, sun screen, beach shoes/beach bag...along on our walking tour...or would going back to the ship and changing then returning to the beach be a better option.

Tendering back and forth to the ship will take up more time than you really want to waste. When we go to Labadee we bring everything we need when we first leave the ship.

I am not a fan of shore excursions offered by the cruise lines, but CCL offered an excursion in Belize where a separate tender picked the people up and took them to a reef. They also had a catamaran/snorkel excursion that picks you up alongside the ship. I will DEFINITELY book an excursion like that the next time I see one. The lines for tenders can be a huge pain in the neck and between the lines and the tender ride you can easily waste an hour or more.
