We were at CN in September for our first experience with Couples and LOVED IT!!!! We had already booked September 2012 (to get the early bird $300 resort credit) and thought the idea of waiting a whole year was going to be hard.
Then we just decided to do another trip in May 2012 for our anniversary. Wow! 3 trips in one year?? (We are about to pay off our mortgage in December and I said we can afford it and should travel while we are young (mid-50's) and able.
I did all sorts of research (Bermuda, Bahamas, Cozumel, etc) and guess what? We're booking Couples Negril again. My husband is like "we'll be there in May and then again 4 months later in September???" Yup, CN twice in one year. Gotta love it. Other places were costing about the same and didn't include the scuba diving.
We are avid divers and love that we can dive 11 times in one week for free. Plus the guys at the Dive Centre are excellent. Our favourite is Jovane as he is super friendly and oh so helpful.
I'd rather go to a place I know will be great than try the unknown. And I am assuming as repeaters it will be even better!
We are off to Cozumel in January but that is strictly a dive vacation statying at a dedicated dive resort. Though meals are included it is not an AI and I know I will be comparing it all week to CN.
