    Hi Ladies,

    I'm thinking of heading on a cruise in January. Just wondering what are your favorite cruise ports of call, and what were the good souvenirs to pick up at each. For instance, I know in the Dominican, larimar, amber, and vanilla are good here. And in Playa del Carmen - tequila :) Key West - of course key lime pie and key lime anything along with Kino Sandals. What are your favorite things to get at the different ports?

    Thanx ladies :)

      A great source of information is the Cruise Critic website Cruise Critic Message Boards. It's similar to this forum but is all about cruises. There are threads on all of the cruise lines, cabin selection, cruise ports, etc. You should check it out. I am having a cruise wedding myself and use both the Cruise Critic and BDW forums a lot. Hope that helps.

                We loved grand cayman and swimming with the sting rays!

                We bought alcohol from the boat it was wicked ship and we also bought some rum cakes and stuff from grand cayman.

                In Calica, Mexico we bought a lot of jewelry and what not. Very easy to bargain.

                And I love key west sooooooo much! It is gorgeous! and so much fun!
