7 Night Western Caribbean (Miami Roundtrip)
Sail Date: March 11, 2007
Ship: Explorer of the Seas
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 7 years ago
When we pulled into the port in Miami, we were very excited about the size of the ship. This being our first cruise, we did not have anything to compare it to, but we talked to several other passengers who said it was much larger than other ships they have been on. It did not seem crowded at all except at dinner time. There was an overwhelming number of activities for all ages at all times. We definately enjoyed cruising on Royal Caribbean.

Cozumel still is recovering from the Hurricane Wilma. Other passengers who had visited Cozumel in the past, seemed quite disappointed. Overall, we were not very impressed. We did not go on one of the ship's excursions, but did our own snorkeling trip. It was okay, but we are spoiled living here in Florida and find that nothing beats snorkeling in the keys.
Don't Miss: Partyers should definately hit Carlos and Charlies/ Senor Frogs.

Way overrated. Don't pay to go to seven mile beach on one of the ship's excursions. I would take a taxi there myself. Caymanians are generally lazy and unaccomidating to vacationers. It was disappointing after becoming accustomed to the very friendly and very accomodating locals at the other ports.
Don't Miss: We didn't get to, but we would have liked to try the Tortuga rum cakes

This port is not for shoppers. It was pretty desolate and the tiny fishing village does not offer much, but the coastline and the water was so amazingly beautiful and I am sure I would visit again.

Skip the city and go straight into the rainforest.
Don't Miss: Zipline!
