We are set to cruise on Elation to Jamaica, Grand Cayman and Cozumel one week from today. My wife and I have been under tremendous stress these past couple of months and cannot wait!! Any advice for any of the port stops? Thank as always!

Lisa and I had a great time on the Elation this past summer with our families, on the 7-night cruise.

Not much to say about the ports anymore. I never left the pier in Mo Bay and Cozumel, and stayed aboard in Grand Cayman.

Have sooo much fun. I've learned that stress melts in salt water.

Sounds like a Fun Ship cruise is just what you need!

I had a great time on the Elation and I'm sure you will too.

We had a great time on Elation, as Dave mentioned earlier. I never went ashore, yet my husband and son loved Pancho's Backyard, right near the pier in Cozumel. We'd been to the other location on earlier visits, and he said that this one did not disappoint. Enjoy your cruise!

I can also recommend Pancho's Backyard on Cozumel at Carnival's new pier. Paradise Beach and Chankanaab Park are also favorites on Cozumel.

Thanks to everyone! My wife's mother passed away, our beloved dog passed away the week after and now we are remodeling a bathroom which up to this point has been disastrous. Does that sound like stress to anyone? I hope the salt water does melt it away!!

Boneman, have a wonderful time! We rented a scooter in Cozumel. However, if you've not been there before, Chankanaab or Paradise are fun. Of course, shopping is good. Grand Cayman, either 7 mile beach or the Stingray City are my suggestions. Montego Bay, either a day pass to an all inclusive or maybe a "best of" tour. We did a nice tour there that hit some of the highlights of the island there.

So sorry to hear of your stress factors, my deepest sympathy for the passing of your mother-in-law and your precious dog. Remodeling is a nightmare!

Bon Voyage

Hi Boneman. Sorry to hear about the recent stress in your life. However, a cruise should be just the thing for you to get rid of that stress, even if it's just temporary!

Boneman, my condolences on your losses. Sounds like you're losing your patience, too, over the remodeling. I promise you that your first step on the ship will feel like a huge exhale. It's a wonderful trip to look forward to.
