Have you tried snorkeling or scuba diving before going on a cruise?

Whether it's practicing in a pool or actually taking lessons, have you tried it before signing up for an excursion for a future cruise?  I highly recommend that you do ....

Yes, I would highly recommend it. If you are at all uncomfortable in the water, it will save you excursion dollars.

Go to the YMCA nearest you and ask about refresher courses.

Before a cruise in Hawaii, we did take a snorkeling excursion.  We already knew how to snorkel, though.  We surely looked a sight by the time we boarded the ship & declined having our photo taken.  But it was worth it!  What an experience.  It was an adventure excursion and included jumping into the base of a waterfall, body boarding and more.

I got certified by the Y about 40 years ago, but no longer have the card, and am not able to get it replaced. I never got around to taking the course again.

Scuba diving prior to air travel (enroute or returning from a cruise) can be an issue.

Generally a good idea not to dive the day before you fly. Gives the body a chance to "gas off" (having nothing to do with eating at taco bell the day before)Big Smile
