    There is no longer a jewelry store on the property. Just the gift shop and I don't remember seeing anything like that when we were there recently.

    I think they are Sherwood BCDs. Basic but in good condition. Not integrated; weight belts for all. No back-inflates to my knowledge.

    If you bring your own and have weight pockets, be sure to...

    We were at CTI last week. We typically go in May and avoid hurricane season. The weather last week was soooo much better than in May, believe it or not. Had only 1 day of rain in the morning, and...

    We typically just add Jamaica to our cell plan for a month if needed. Depends how much you need to call home. We don't.

    You don't purchase resort credit. That is a perk that is offered at...

    If you want to snorkel any time but the organized trip, you need to bring your own gear. Highly recommend doing that anyway so you make sure your mask fits properly (and I prefer to have my own...

    If you're visually impaired, CN may be a better fit. There are steps to get everywhere at CTI and that may cause a bit of a problem.

    We almost always book the least expensive room. We spend very little awake time in our room so really don't care what the view is as long as it's not the Houston skyline. Our gardenview room at CTI...

    As long as you have a return ticket, you should be fine. I've never seen anything that said it had to be a round trip ticket, on the same airline. You just have to show you are planning to leave.

    There have always been single divers on our trips. No problem. They just sorta buddy up, but we're all in a group anyway. Just always a good idea to know your buddy and have a plan in the event of...

    We have experienced days where we could not get to the island due to red flag conditions. It was a bummer but I just did topless at the end of the pier and no worries. Wasn't a deal breaker for us...

    I wear either a dive skin or shortie wet suit because I get cold. Most people just wear a t-shirt which is required. You cannot (and should not) just wear your bathing suit as the straps on the BC...

    We always book a garden view (at least until this year which will probably be our last trip). We love the south bldg (I think it's bldg 5?) at the very end farthest from the lobby. Our garden views...

    I needed to use the ATM at CTI the first or second trip there. About half the time it did not work, and when it did the fee was like $6 or $8. I would avoid it if possible. You really don't need...

    We always snorkel off the island (yes, naked). You do need to watch yourself as the reef is very shallow in some places and urchins abound. But we always enjoy it!

    It is fine for non-swimmers as you don't really swim anywhere. That being said, if you are afraid of the water or paranoid about drowning, you may not be comfortable. If you can relax and enjoy, go...

    I would say if you were in shorts and tank top at the resort during the day, you'd be over dressed. Bathing suit with cover up at meal time is the typical dress from breakfast to time for dinner.

    Before the renovations they were only being used for storage. I think they were discontinued at that point but could be wrong.
