Michele, Cabo Wabo is a recommended bar and eatery by the cruise line. You'll be fine. Drink to your heart's content.

As a good rule stay away from ice in your drinks and tap water. Bottled water,canned soda,beer and wine are relatively safe. Nothing like a good dose of "Motezuma's Revenge" to ruin an otherwise perfect cruise!

Now I'm getting scared-hehe. My friend and I are going to Costa Maya and Grand Cayman in December. Are these places bad? I've heard they are really beautiful places and then I have heard they are just plain out nasty. I dont want to spend all this money on a cruise to a place that is nasty and not enjoy the ports and I also dont want to wind up sick. Help Should I book a cruise elsewhere? We already did the Bahama's and I've always heard mexico is nice...

Hi Tabby. Welcome. I can't personally speak for Costa Maya, but G.Cayman nasty? That's the first time I've ever heard that one.

Grand Cayman is a very rich port and personally, one of my favorites. Where you dock, the shops include Versaci, Rolex and Prada, among others. Very rarely will you see such high end stores in port. Grand Cayman was clean, beautiful, well-maintained, and gorgeous. Tom Cruise owns a home here.(not like that means anything, of course)
Are you sure they weren't in another Grand Cayman?

Water is perfectly fine to drink here. Everyone speaks the English language. We stopped at a local restaurant for conch fritters and our waitress was from Maine. We struck up a long conversation with her. She loves living in G.C. and said she would never leave.

I'm trying to figure out how you buy ice directly from coca-cola.

I just recieved this from Concierge.com in my email and couldn't help myself - please go to this link to relieve your mind when it comes to Grand Cayman. I think you'll agree Grand Cayman is anything but "nasty"!!!

Costa Maya is the newest addition to the Mexican Caribbean coast, designed especially for the cruise line industry. I'm fortunate enough to know a gentleman that was one of the initial investors. I wouldn't be too concerned.

Ask your doctor for a prescription for Dukoral. I always take this before going on vacation. It really works! (no, I don't have shares in the company )

Dukoral Oral Vaccine To Stop Travellers' Diarrhea Approved In Canada

TORONTO, ON -- May 13, 2003 -- Travellers' diarrhea is the most common medical problem affecting travellers to developing countries. Up to 50 per cent of international travellers to developing countries will fall victim to Travellers' diarrhea, potentially ruining a perfect vacation.

Health Canada has recently approved Dukoral™ and it will be available to Canadians in May 2003. Dukoral, indicated for adults and children two years of age and older, is the first and only oral vaccine that safely helps protect travellers against enterotoxigenic Escherichia coli (ETEC), the most common cause of Travellers' diarrhea. Dukoral also provides protection against cholera caused by Vibrio cholerae.


"Dukoral provides the best protection against the most common cause of travellers' diarrhea," said Dr. Suni Boraston, travel medicine specialist, Vancouver BC. "I have patients who have taken all of the necessary precautions -- drinking purified water, eating fully cooked and hot food and peeling their own fruit - and have still been affected by travellers' diarrhea. Dukoral is another way for us to help our patients have an uninterrupted vacation or business trip."


Two doses of Dukoral, taken one week apart prior to the trip, helps protect travellers for three months. The last dose should be taken at least one week before departure.
