Cozumel, Mexico - Access to Cozumel and shopping was excellent! We could walk directly from the ship to a huge variety of shops. The "recommended" jewelry stores had good quality items, but the obvious "commission" for sales was a disappointment. It was great fun walking around the area and stopping for a drink. Some members of our party hired a cab for a private tour around the city. They enjoyed it immensely. The driver stopped at the beach and waited for them, then continued on the local tour. I was pleased to be free to wander without fear of getting lost or overly tired. It was a very lovely, relaxing time.
George Town, Grand Cayman - Since the weather was not the best, we took "The Best of Grand Cayman" bus tour around the island. What a waste of time and money! It was valuable in that we saw the entire island --- and knew we'd never want to go there again! The rum store and the stop in Hell were definitely tourist traps and gimmicks. Shopping at the dock area was ok, but a waste.
