I am traveling Feb 15th on the Royal Caribbean Freedom of the Seas to Labadee Haiti, Ocho Rios, Jamaica, George Town Gran Cayman and Cozumel. I have been to Cozumel but not the other destinations. Has anyone been to these destinations and can give me feedback on excursions, things to do, not to do.

Grand Cayman is my favorite port in the Caribbean. Go to stingray city and if you like to snorkel they have a nice reef there, too. The water is the most amazing color of blue. It is almost surreal! Enjoy!

I second sting ray city. Look up Captain Marvins of Moby Dicks (websites) or use the search function on this site for reviews. They will have much smaller groups than the ship, and be less expensive. They have built a reputation on having cruise passengers to the ships on time as well.

Cozumel I like Chankanaab. There is an admission, but there is a small beach, snorkeling from shore, concession. It is close to the pier and cabs are plentiful. Of course you can swim with the dolphins there if you book in advance. Last year we did a jeep tour using Shoretrips.com. We toured the island, there was snorkeling, a beach, a small beach front cantina, an historic shopping spot/town/church, and a great lunch at a local place. It was my husband's favorite tour ever.

Labadee is owned by RCCL. It is beach day: parasail, jet ski, There is a zip line. Your shore tours on RCCLs website are the only options. Again use the search function on this site and there are pictures, reviews and maps posted for this island.
