Bill & Jo,
Thank you for your kind words, they are most appreciated.
We will give you our favorite things to do, but for a full in-depth report of the ports your interested in, we suggest you go to Tom Ogg's PortReviews.com page. You will find a comprehensive report of each of these ports and also some cruiser reviews.
Cozumel, a must: You can now find everything you could possibly want to buy at the new shopping center at the end of the Carnival pier, close to where your ship will dock. It is a huge shopping area and the merchants do not hassle you, like they do downtown. If you want a very nice place to have lunch, make sure you stop by Pancho's Backyard. Besides a delicious Mexican lunch You will be entertained by a duo playing the Marimba's.
How to get a free Margarita at Panchos: Go to the Los Cinco Soles web-site and print the page and present it at Pancho’s when you go there for lunch. A copy of the page is a coupon for a free Margarita. The page address is: http://www.loscincosoles.com/loscincosoles/coupons.htm
Print a page for each one that is having lunch.
Grand Cayman: If you want to swim,7 Mile Beach is perfect with lots of pure white sand and crystal clear tropical water.
A Grand Cayman must, is a visit to Stingray City.
Half Moon Cay: Is with out a doubt one of the most beautiful, pristine beachs, in all of the Caribbean. If we had our druthers, we could of stayed there for the entire week.
Montego Bay: (exerpt from Port Reviews) Jimmy Buffets Margaritaville sets the standard for Caribbean party bars. This three story structure sits right on the ocean and is a daily scene of fun and party. There are actually several bars, Jacuzzis on the third deck with their own bar and a water slide that actually drops 4 stories and catapults you into the ocean. Warning, the water slide is not the same as you would find at a family water park and is not for the faint of heart. Margaritaville is FUN!
If we can be of any further help, let us know.
