I am going to a Caribbean cruise in August too with my family and planning to bring the Tamron 24-70 2.8 VC too. But I do not know it will be the same direction or not since we have to fly to Miami Florida.

Unlike most cruises, they could at least tell that they were on the water. ;)

Be prepare for condensation on your equipment. Going from an air conditioned ship to the hot, humid outdoor weather will cause condensation in your camera. This occurred with me.

I would suggest the G9 type camera but if you bring a dslr, the 24-105 should be good. Be careful with the beach, a little breeze plus the powdery sand can be trouble if it gets inside the camera. I also suggest the neck or wrist strap if shooting on deck or walking about. Once your out of the resort areas, its like another other city for petty crimes.
BTW - enjoy the rum runners

Leaving Sunday morning headed to New Orleans, cruise from there to Key West, Freeport & Nassau, one week trip. I guess I'm taking all my gear. Any ideas of do's & don'ts or what to shoot? It's my first cruise, really don't know what to expect.

Make sure you have a Waterproof Bagpack for all your supplys. (Just in case)
Other then that, just have fun..Don't overwhelm your self with "junk" you dont really need. Wide, Zoom, and Prime is all you need my friend. Lots of memory bw!
