At Castaway Cay the String Ray encounter it is very rocky, and can really hurt your feet.
I found my Crocs were great to wear in the water......

Just a thought as I have never cruised before but if you lack a verandah, using the blow dryer to warm up the lens may work too.

This isn't a tip, sorry. I believe the reason you aren't supposed to bring food into ports is because countries are worried about disease and pests. Fruits and vegetables especially can carry pests, etc.

I too have very thick hair and always carry my own hd when I travel. On our first cruise I used mine not liking theirs.
BUT on this last cruise I used theirs the first day and every day after?!?!?

Excellent idea - we took a suitcase full of snacks when we were in Disneyland but it didn't occur to me to bring snacks for the cruise. And ziploc baggies are handy at all times!

Only problem is sometimes they must get in such a good mood they steal the decorations. That happened to us once. I know it was probably just a kid, but it was very disappointing.

I prefer Parrot Cay too. On our last 2 cruises the greeter told us they were full and to go to Topsiders. I told them we had family already in there (which ok was a lie, but I wanted to eat at PC!). They let us in and it wasn't full at all. (both times!).
