Go on the trolley, you can get on and off at points of the stops.See Hemingway House, Mel Fisher's Shipwreck Museum. Go for lunch @ Jimmy Buffetts, it's going to be hot so stop in for some COLD beer.

We were in KW last Thanksgiving. There are lots of fun things to do. Here are some of the most easily accessible ones.

Duval St. - The main drag through KW, where most bars and shops are located.
There's a webcam outside of Sloppy Joes where your friends at home can see you. We called while on camera and it was kind of fun.
The top floor of Hotel La Concha has a bar with an open air deck that has a great view.
Blonde Giraffe...amen!

Lighthouse - you can climb to the top and get a nice view of the island too, but no drinks.

Hemingway House - kinda neat, especially the 6 toed cats.

Audabon House - not that great, esp. since it wasn't his house. He just stayed there for a week.

Mel Fisher Museum - pretty interesting, esp. if you're intrigued by the whole treasure thing.

Cemetary - sounds creepy but there are some interesting headstones like the one that reads, "I told you I was sick!"

Rent a bike or moped - good way to see a lot fo the backstreets with interesting houses and flora, and you can get to the public beaches on the other side of the island.

There are a ton of good restaurants but they tend to be pricey.

Have fun!

Your old pal,
Joe

Hi biguntx,
I haven't been on Costa for years, but couldn't pass up the prices for the Christmas week. Normally, all cruise lines double their prices, Costa was offering it for $779, so I couldn't resist. The last time I sailed Costa was on the Carla C and had a ball. The ship was old and you could tell that, but it was clean. The crew is definitely a mixture and the passengers were more foreign than American, but I think that added to the experience. The food was mainly Italian, however, they had steaks or chicken that you could choose. The crew were much more lively than on some of the other lines, the waiters sang/hummed/whistled most of the time. They danced in the dining room and encouraged you to dance and sing along with them. The Magica is a relatively new ship, so I'm excited about touring her. My husband hasn't been on Costa, so it will be a totally new experience for him. He only started cruising after he met me, so he's only been on Carnival and Princess. I hope Costa is as fun as it used to be. I'll let you know when we get back.

Thanks for the review.

We have seen some great deals on Costa. I don't believe we let them pass us by again.

You seem to have a great attitude. I believe as with all of life's experiences "they are what you make them to be." Nothing enhances an experience like a positive attitude.

Thanks again,
