were thinking of taking the stingray hell and turtle farm shore excursion on carnival cruise lines and should we just go to the stingray sandbar or is hell worth the money?

It depends on what your interests are. We were there in 2003, so it may have changed since then. In 2003, Hell was a small area of rock formation, a post office (from which you can mail your friends and co workers a post card from Hell), visit the tourist trap shop, be greeted by a cashier that says "what in hell do you want?," and pay way too much money for trinkets. Also, a seedy bar is in Hell.

I'd be inclined to spend extra time swimming with the stingrays. The turtle farm; beware. We were led to believe it was a sanctuary and breeding project to assist in the repopulation of the sea turtle. In actuality, only a portion of the turtles are released; the remainder are raised for food.

Your call; personally, I'd pass on Hell.

Hell no! It is just the same as it was when I first stopped there in the early 90's - some rocks, a post office, a t-shirt shop, and more than a little feeling of being at the definition of "tourist trap".

"Look who's advertisin'
Billboards everywhere.
See Hellacious acres,
your taylor-made nightmare."

Name the movie and the artist who sang it.

I messed up the answer though GC. The good chef wanted the name of the movie too. A Star Is Born.

Buzzz, oh I'm sorry, it was Chris Christopherson in the movie, A Star is Born. BS was also in the movie but I preferred her less than brazen and not so loud-mouthed character in Yentl.
