April 2015 - Freedom of the Seas to Caribbean - Western
Cozumel, Mexico - Scuba trip with the ship is convenient - right on the docks, professional and the diving is fantastic. Mostly it is "drift" diving with strong currents but nice to see the reefs are recovering very well. We saw turtles, nurse sharks, frog fishes and lots of beautiful reefs.
George Town, Grand Cayman - Highly recommend a trip to Stingray City.
Labadee (Cruiseline Private Island) - Great beaches, very clean. Fun to peruse the "shopping village" but beware they are very, very aggressive - push back and do NOT accept "free" offers (bracelet, carve your souvenir) because nothing is for free!
Port Canaveral, Florida - New port facilities make embarkation & debarkation painless.
Falmouth, Jamaica - A tip for Dunn's Falls: make SURE you have solid water shoes (not flip flops or sneakers), it's pretty physically challenging and will frighten most kids under 10; and for sure stick with the guides who help you get the right footing.
