Haven't received our docs yet, but we booked just a week and a half ago, so I'm not expecting them right away. As long as we get them before we sail! Not sure if we will do any excursions. We actually enjoy staying on the ships when we are in port - the pools and slides are nice and quiet. We've been to Cozumel and GC before, so we may get off and do a little wandering. We live by the beach, so we usually don't do anything that involves a beach excursion.

shore excursions

Is anyone swimming with dolphins at either port? We did stingray city and snorkeling in grand cayman, and horseback riding at mr. sanchos in cozumel last year. We are thinking of going to dolphin cove in grand cayman this cruise with our 3 kids, 12, 10 and 6. Has anyone been there before?

We are thinking of staying onboard the ship in cozumel this time. We currently live in Puerto Rico, so we can go to the beach anytime...we live about 2 miles from the closest beach.

We live near Anna Maria Island so we don't do beach stuff either. But we love to snorkel in the crystal clear Caribbean.

I so agree!! We did FE on the Fantasy in May and the FE group was too large (over 100 with adults and children) - way too big.

I saw a sea turtle swimming past the ship on the PC cruise. He was going the opposite direction than we were and so he went by really fast. One of the highlights of our cruises for me. Looking forward to learning more about them.

We will stay on the ship while docked in Cozumel also......we just cruised this past Feb from Galveston and didn't care too much for Cozumel.

We did not care for Cozumel either, but we think the Mayan ruins will be very interesting for our son who is a huge history buff. Our grandson went with us to the ruins at Costa Maya a few years back, but he was only 7 so I think he will get a lot more out of it this trip. He is turning 14. Dennis and I will enjoy the refresher and seeing with another guide also.

Hello Everyone!!! Sorry I haven't been on. Work has been crazy!! Welcome to all the newcomers!! You will have a blast!! DH and I are doing the Turtle Farm in GC and still not sure about Cozumel. I would like to do the ruins but not sure if it's worth the money. Anyone been on that excursion before??
Also if anyone wants to link up dining with us, you are more than welcome. I would like to get a group if possible before I call in. We are on the late dining. I have one so far. If anyone else is interested let me know!!
