Montego Bay
Port Rating: 2.0 out of 5+
We've been to "Mo' bay" several times. The minus on this time was that since the Magic is a bigger ship it got the mooring close to the pier whilst the Conquest moored in the industrial area. we had to wait for buses to shuttle us to the main part..which was a terrible mess, no organisation and people were unhappy and fairly rude. If you end up over on the industrial side be prepared for a long time waiting on a shuttle. best idea if you don't have an excursion, watch for all the lines to go down THEN get off ship and catch shuttle=-)

many times at this port as well, we just waited out the crowds to tender and only waited in line bout 10min to get one to land. If you're doing an excursion try to get a tender ticket and be first off, otherwise just wait, no lines and you can hop the tender boat and zip right to town=-) Grand Cayman is very easy to walk around, and there's a lot of opportunities to do your own island tours, instead of using cruise ships excursions, it's a lot cheaper to book your own.

Highly recommend the Sting Rays! Or if that's not really your thing, take a tour of the island and visit the turtles and "hell" you can mail a letter from there too. Things are a bit expensive there, so souvenirs and such will cost more.

Cozumel

Cozumel is chock full of great things to do! It's my fave port on this itinerary. You can walk around the little shopping area right there or take a taxi into town and shop there, as we'd gotten a severe cold we just walked around and shopped some. Most excursions you can safely book a less expensive version yourself EXCEPT the tulum ruins, that's a long day and if you do go through the cruise line, they have to wait for you, unlike booking on your own. this is 2 cruises in a row our ship didn't leave anyone... Cozumel is the best for watching late comers scramble to get to ship!

We've done the parasailing, beaches, the antlantis submarine and shopping at this port.
