5 Night Western Caribbean Cruise - Cozumel & Costa Maya by acorrigan3389

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Large Group

The Independence of the Seas was very clean and well maintained. Staff was very friendly and food is always delicious. Entertainment was top notch. Although they can be expensive, the junior suite is great! Balcony is a great place for a quiet nap! :)

$6 blackjack on the afternoon in you are in Labadee. Tables open at 3pm. The casino was dead. At Labadee lunch is from 11:30am to 1:30pm, go early. Food runs out, fellow passengers get a little irritated, and the workers deal with this everyday, so they are indifferent

Don't need to book a tour in San Juan just go to the "White" tram/trolley stop outside the pier for a free ride to Old San Juan and tour the forts, that will take all day, they are massive and for 5 bucks well worth it. US cell phone work and it's usually included in you plan.

Book a day at Palm Court Plantation & restaurant for $11 and swim there all day. There is a nice restaurant & it overlooks the water (you can see the cruise ship from there). I would definitely hang out there on my next visit to St. Kitts. Another cruiser said food was good. A paradise to relax.
