Review summary

Dear Travelers,  We sailed in the Carribean Princess to the above ports.  We took a private tour at each of the ports that was not connected with the cruise company.

At Roatan we hired a catamaran captain to take us snorkeling and sighseeing.  the snorkeling was good, but not spectacular and unfortunately the cat was very old.  We were promised lunch witch turned out to be a glass of rum punch and a small bag of spicy plantain.

     At Belize we had a jungle walk for maybe a mile that was not difficult and then a float trip on innertubes through some remarkable caves and ending in a river.  Well worth the price of $50/person.

     In Cozumel we drove a jeep around much of the island and we were promised snorkeling, but the ocean was way too rough so it was mostly sight seeing.  Probably not worth the price we paid but all persons we dealt with were very nice and they tried to be accommodating.  Attended a tequila testing, tasting that also well below par and were trying to sell us Tequila at outrageous prices..

    The ship was excellent for food and entertainment, but there were few activities to do on board that were not passive like watching a movie or entertainers.  Good service but wait staff we had were not really friendly and seemed more interested in getting us all to leave as quickly as possible.

We had a great lady in one of the boutiques that went out of her way to be nice to our mom. Waiters at table just did their jobs and could not wait to see us go.

Nice room and good steward. No animals out of towels???? Bed very comfortable, good TV, but WiFi internet was way over priced and very slow.

Best food was at scheduled dinner with a wide variety to chose from each night.
