Love to snorkel but not sure what ports we should plan it for. Curacao ( willemstad ) Bonaire ( Kralendijk ) and Aruba ( Oranjestad )
Excrusions or on our own? Recommendations?
Since you are on Royal, I thought I'd relate my own experiences. I've had some issues with Royal and their excursions in general, so I prefer to go private. Last January I was scheduled to cruise on Adventure to Bonaire. I knew I wanted to dive there. Every time I checked, up till about 30 days before my cruise Royal had 0 scuba offerings in this port. I like to plan ahead, so I booked with VIP diving in February and was done with it. Right before our cruise suddenly offerings appeared, but I had already booked mine. I enjoyed VIP.
