Cozumel, Mexico
We enjoyed the ease of access to the shore. We also enjoyed the nearby shopping. It is necessary however to go to town in a group. This was our first cruise so we did not enjoy any of the excursions.
Labadee (Cruiseline Private Island)
It was a fun way to kick off the tour. The island felt safe. We enjoyed the outdoor bbq. We did not enjoy the beach because of the rocks and debris. We would have liked to see a concert or hear more of the island music. The water did not seem clean. I would have liked to have shopped in a more relaxed atmosphere for my souvernirs. I could hardly see anything because the natives were yelling so much. Must enjoy the outdoor cookout. Did not know of any restaurants. Best place was under the big trees relaxing.
Don't Miss: Don't miss the cookout and the shade trees.
