zydeco cruise 2007 ports of call

GALVESTON, TX - Chartered in 1839, Galveston Island, located on the upper Texas coast of the Gulf of Mexico, was the principal port into the southwest during the 19th century. This coastal town has experienced a recent revitalization, making it one of America's newest beach resorts. Better than the beautifully restored Victorian architecture of its historic downtown district, is the southern hospitality of Galveston's residents. MONTEGO BAY, JAMAICA - Montego Bay, known as "Mo' Bay" to the locals, is Jamaica's second largest community. Gorgeous white-sand beaches and mangrove wetlands surround the old town, which rests at the bottom of lush green mountains. Montego Bay offers the best of the Caribbean, including beautiful Georgian architecture in the historic town of Falmouth. Surround yourself with the essence of Jamaica in the island's friendliest city
GRAND CAYMAN, CAYMAN ISLANDS - Each year the Cayman Islands play host to visitors from all over the world who come to visit the beautiful islands. The three coral islands set in the northwest Caribbean Sea are well known for their underwater beauty and are also home to some of the friendliest people in the world. Grand Cayman's major tourist attraction is the world-famous Seven Mile Beach on which most of the island's hotels and resorts are located. SMB is regarded by many as one of the best beaches in the world. The Cayman Islands are also world famous as a Scuba Diving destination because of their crystal-clear waters and their proximity to the Cayman Wall. Cayman Brac and Little Cayman are also considered to be elite dive destinations. There are several snorkeling locations where tourists can swim with stingrays. COZUMEL, MEXICO - The gem of the Mexican Caribbean located on the Yucatan Peninsula, its astonishing coral reefs make Cozumel an underwater sanctuary for hundreds of exotic fish species, a true mecca for divers. Snorkel along spectacular reefs, sun on pristine beaches and snap up great buys on vibrantly colored handicrafts. Just a ferry ride away: the Mayan ruins of Tulum, spectacularly sited on the sea cliffs. Once the destination of Mayan women paying homage to Ixchel, goddess of fertility. Don't miss the village square and the spanking new Pier Shopping Center.
