That depends on what kind of snorkeling you are comfortable with. Do you prefer doing it on the beach, or off a boat? We went to Frommer's Resort in Belize (about 1 hour drive from the port) that rented equipment and had snorkeling off the beach. We did this with our kids. There was plenty of fish to see, but all pretty much the same kind.
Grand Cayman has a sting ray excursion that you should definitely do if you haven't already. That is quite an experience that includes snorkeling.

They're all really good snorkeling ports, so it's hard to say. Cayman had some good wrecks near where you tender. Belize and Roatan have some great reefs. Cozumel has some good spots, too. My favorite was Xel-ha. We went up to Cozumel Beach Resort in July. They had a snorkel trail that was nice. Chankanaab Park has some good snorkeling and is close to the ship.

We are going to Chankanaab this year, Haven't been there since Wilma, so it will be interesting to see how it is. On Roatan we are going to CoCoView Resort to snorkel. On Grand Cayman there is a nice place to snorkel within walking distance of the tender dock. It is Abanks'. It is free and you can rent chairs, lockers, and equipment. Lots of fish. They also serve some pretty tasty conch fritters there.
