Nassau
Port Rating: 4.0 out of 5+
We've been to Nassau many times before, so on this occasion we decided to just walk to Junkanoo beach which is very close to beach and just stopped at their famous straw market. Purchase a couple of things here.

We've also been to Grand Turks several times before & decided to walk further down to an absolutely great area of water without the rocks that are close to where ship is docked. Fabulous day well spent here.

Ocho Rios
Port Rating: 3.0 out of 5+
We chose to not venture out into the city as we have taken tours & seen the beaches available to cruise passengers. Several years ago we did the Dunn's river falls and liked it a lot but, have to admit that at my age now would not of been able to finish the climb. Not for everyone for sure.

As far as the merchants here, again on previous stops, found them way to aggressive thus the reason for not stopping on this cruise.

Grand Cayman
Port Rating: 5.0 out of 5+
Grand Cayman island is beautiful and so are their beaches. Had a great day here and did not have to spend too much. Taxi ride as $4.00 each going and $5.00 returning plus $5 for beach umbrella. Very reasonable and people here are very nice and friendly. Only negative is that we had to use a tender boat (provided by the port authorities here) which took many passengers. It only takes 10 minutes or so to get from ship to port so not too bad.

Roatan
Port Rating: 5.0 out of 5+
Our day in Roatan was also very, very nice. Found this island has much improved since we were last day 7 years ago. Lots of new hotels etc. All beaches are public here but the vendors are a bit bothersome. They are well mannered and move away with just a thank you from us. But they do come by again and again.

Beautiful beaches with lots of big fish swimming in the water all around us. Did not even need snorkeling gear...

Found this island taxi prices more expensive than other stops.

Cozumel
Port Rating: Not Rated
Many times before to Cozumel and will be returning again in January, so shortly after we arrived here and as we were about to get into a taxi to head to a beach, it started to pour. We decided to return to ship and make use of all the facilities on board. What a great idea; we had the ship almost all to ourselves. This is a place where if you love the beaches you will find many great choices here. Fantastic water & sand...
