Default Poll: Favorite Shore Excursion

Any Island - Any Cruise!
Mine is a tough choice - Swimming with the Dolphins and swimming with stingrays.!!!
John? His is between the Parasailing and the stingrays. (I think the parasailing was REALLY his favorite)

No question. All the time I wanted to spend in the Hermitage. Total bliss.

Self-organized.

Diving, I would have to say our best diving was in Belize. I just loved taking the speed boat out to our private island for diving.

A tie between Captain Marvin's Stingray City excursion (privately booked by FlaJack!), swimming with the dolphins in Cozumel (privately booked by Angelpugs!), whale watching in Cabo and the White Pass Railroad trip in Skagway (both through Princess). I just can't name one as my all time favorite.

Default I'm definitely in the minority

Caveat that I've only sailed the caribbean so far (not counting Europe, Africa, and Asia while on those BIG grey ships), but I actually like Caracas best.

You're never going to go to Caracas for a trip (unless you're in the oil profession) so the full day tour was our one chance. The trip allowed us to see the government buildings (some quite nice), historical sites (Simon Bolivar house, etc) and then up into the mountains for a shopping trip for colored glass that I think is almost as good as Murano. Nine years later, we still have more "objects" in the house from Venezuela than any other place we have been (although my wife would say the jewelryfrom St Thomas and from other trips is more memorable).

As I said, I'm definitely in the minority
