Going on Conquest for our honeymoon on Oct 16th. First cruise for both of us. Very excited. Trying to figure out what excursions to do. Any suggestions?

Hey I am so excited for you guys. Are you getting married on the ship or before??
This is our 4th cruise and we have never really done any of the excursions through carnival. We have been to conzumel 3 times. We usually go shopping in cozumel. The shopping is awesome.
We went on the carnival Inspiration a couple of years ago to the Caymans but we were not allowed to dock so I can not suggest anything there. We are probably going to take a taxi to a beach. I have not had time to figure out hich one just yet.
We went to Jamaica our 1st year and we made the mistake of going to the shops. I hated it the vendors were pushy and the prices were high. This year we are going to take a taxi to Breezes Resort in Montego Bay. For $60.00 you can have all you can eat, drink(alcohol INCLUDED) and you have full uses of all there pools, beach areas, and other ammenities. I am really excited.

I can't wait to go It's all I can think about. Well feel free to email me at Tammynolin@yahoo.com if you have any questions.

Tammy,
Just a tip, but i heard that Sunset Beach was the way to go in Jamaica, and it has all the stuff Breezes does, but its 20 bucks per person instead of 60. Anyone know for sure about this? We are booked on the Conquest for Sept 11th.

Tammy, do you have to make reservations with them, or can you just go there?

What about transportation?

Susie - I have not actually been there, but here is the info I have found on it. You don't have to make reservations. You just take a cab from the pier to Sunset Beach. It is maybe a 5 min ride. Apparently you can see the ship from the beach. Make sure you take the taxi's with the red license plate. They are controlled by the government and apparently are much safer and cheaper. Sunset Beach will keep your Sail & Sign card at the desk where you check in. You have access to everything, food, drinks, and toys (excpet motorized I think). I was also told there are guards at the gate to make sure no one that is not supposed to be there gets in (read drug dealers). In Grand Cayman you may want to check into swimming with the stingrays - I hear it is a DO NOT miss excursion. There are several companies that do excursions in addition to the ships excursion. You could probably do a search ofr swim with the stingrays to find them. Just make sure they are reputable. I hope this helps. I am going on the Conquest in Nov for my b-day, our first cruise too and I can't wait. I have been researching and finding all sorts of great info. Have a great cruise!!
