    It's our first time too and we're going at the same time (December) as you. I see no one has replied so while I'm new to cruising too I have done a lot of research so perhaps I can help.

    First about pre-booking excursions. The general thought is if they are short excursions it is best to wait and book them onshore because you can get a better price. However, if you arrive back late the ship will leave without you so for long excursions the thought is it's best to book with the cruise line because they will either wait for you if your excursion is late getting back, or they will make sure that you get to the next port. And the big surprise for me was to pack an extension cord (not a surge protector) because there is usually only one or two plugs in your room. I would research online your question. You'll get lots of good tips. Have fun. Maybe we'll cross paths and not even know it.

    hope your cruise is great.our first was a 3 day to the bahamas that caused us to become addicted to cruising.if you are going snorkeling in grand cayman and dont want to spent a huge almount of time or money try eden rock,its a 10 minute walk to the right as you leave the pier.maybe not the most fish you will ever see but a good way to see if you like the underwater can get a decent digital underwater camera for about $ investment ever if your going to be a serious snorkeller,and will also work above will want lots of pics of the ship,ports,etc.cozumel offers a cenote and turtle snorkelling excursion thats very good,and at the end you get fed in a real mexican restaurant...
