  1. Oops - mistakenly mentioned wrong HAL ship. Also considering Eurodam, NOT Nieuw Amsterdam.

  3. We are planning an Alaska cruise, RT from Seattle this August. Choosing Princess over Holland America on expectation that entertainment and food will be better on Princess. Looking for input on which ship to select if that bears out, Ruby or Star Princess. If we're mistaken on entertainment/food quality of Princess v. Holland, please explain your thinking. Still could be open to sailing on Nieuw Amersterdam. TIA!

  5. Thank you! Greatly appreciate your time and answers! Karen
  6. Oh my goodness! Oh-KAY then - we'll have to regroup all our thinking! My sister will be happy, as she wanted to snorkel in Roatan, but I was thinking the resort dive would be best there. I'm apt to take your advice; you seem very knowledgeable and I really want to optimize our experience! Do you think Roatan Excursions (the company that Subway uses for excursions) would be a good way to go for the Roatan snorkel?
  7. I also have this question and need to choose a snorkel in either Costa Maya or Cozumel. Will be doing a resort dive in Roatan, so that port is already covered. We prefer to snorkel off of a boat rather than from the beach, if that influences the recommendations. The last time I did a boat snorkel in Cozumel, it wasn't that great. I've read elsewhere in this thread that snorkel spots get assigned day by day according to conditions, so maybe we just didn't hit a great day? On the other hand, I haven't seen a lot of comment on snorkeling in Costa Maya. Thanks for any pointers!
  8. P. S. Do you think Costa Maya would be better for snorkeling than Cozumel? Very helpful to hear what you said about Cozumel snorkeling; too bad. I'm not sure logistically we can do a combined resort dive/snorkel in Roatan. It's not offered formally as an excursion and the cost to arrange privately may be prohibitive. Still, I will investigate. And, am continuing to seek to snorkel at a second port.
  9. Thanks so much for the pointers! I notice when I go to Subway Water Sports and click on the link for cruise passenger excursions, that it takes me to an excursion provider Roatan Tours who offers two discover scuba excursions, one through Subway, and the other through Mayan Divers. Any insight? Thanks again!
  10. Planning to do a resort dive excursion with my 16-year old daughter in either Roatan or Cozumel, and then a snorkel excursion at the other. Any input on how to choose which to do in which location? We've ruled out doing 2 resort dives, so please don't suggest that. Thank you!
