We are doing a Western Caribbean Itinerary; as certified divers, we are excited to be given a chance to dive in these ports in the summer, as the visibility tends to be better than any other time, according to divers who have been there in the summer months. But there will be more to this trip than diving. What kind of weather can I expect to encounter in early July? Rain and lots of it is what I am expecting - is this accurate?
We are looking forward to enjoying the ship when we are not diving. We have not yet decided on the ports where we plan to dive, but as we have been to ALL of them many times (though not in the summer), we probably won't be getting off the ship unless it is to go diving. What can you tell me about a ship's entertainment & activity schedule with a port intensive itinerary (one day at sea at the start and end of the cruise)? I don't like to simply sit around doing nothing, and prefer to be active. Just curious how "active" a ship like the Dream is when it's in port?
We were on the Spirit over Christmas and New Years on a California based cruise to Mexico. Not sure why, but there wasn't much to do during the day when the ship was in port - vast majority of people who remained on the ship relaxed by the pool or in a bar. There was nothing going on at all. Had the weather been bad, people probably would have been inside lot. How does a ship like the Dream plan activities when it is raining?
If I know nothing much happens, I can plan for this and simply get off the ship and go shopping, but that's not much fun in the pouring rain either. I know many people who prefer to relax and not do too much on vacation - I can get into that mode as well. It's just nice to know in advance what to expect.
