We just got off a Liberty cruise that began Nov 27th.
Todd was the CD. Kevin was the ACD. Both are a lot of fun.
A great ship. Food and service were good.
You are going to some great ports.
Cozumel is one of my favorites. Of course, swimming with the Dolphins is the "Thing to Do" at this port. BUT if you are not into that kind of thing, this is a very safe port to do on your own.
has an independent tour that runs $95.00 for 3 hours for up to 4 people.
YOU tell Gerry where to go, how long to stay etc.
He speaks wonderful English...and locks the car at every stop so that your stuff is safe.
He will even bring an ice chest so that you can purchase ice and soda or beer from the grocery to enjoy along the way.
He picks you up at the pier where the taxi station is.
Grand Cayman is also safe....but expensive.
The thing to do there is swimming with the sting rays. But if that is not your thing, you can just grab a taxi to Seven Mile Beach. There is also good snorkeling there....
Ocho Rios....this is the ONLY port in your cruise that I would NOT just get off the ship can grab a taxi. You can walk to Island Village (an EASY walk from the ship). There is a Margaritaville there and a VERY small beach. (I can't remember the beach rates for the day...but it was maybe $5 a person for an entrance fee and then a couple of bucks per person if you wanted a chair etc)
The "thing to do" here is Dunn's River Falls...but I would only do it with a SHIP tour OR a recommended independent tour guide. (sorry I don't have the name of one)
Be prepared for aggressive vendors....
You will have a wonderful cruise!!
