    The Dominican Republic has multiple direct flights daily from NYC. The all inclusives work, but more and more people find the restrictive. Check out a small town outside Puerto Plata called Cabarete, as it has numerous condos on the beach, villas for rent and lots to do randing from sports to nature walks.

    Absolutely, Donna, you don't have to look too far to find both snorkeling and tennis at any number of beachfront resorts! My top pick for this combination would be one of the resorts on Maui's west coast, which fronts some of the continent's best snorkeling. The Grand Wailea (http://bit.ly/zCtuFh) is close to some good beach snorkeling at Ahihi Bay, plus gazes out toward the world-class snorkeling (and diving) in offshore Molokini Crater. The resort can furnish you with gear plus set up excursions to Molokini. Further north up Maui's west coast -- with any number of great snorkeling sites, detailed here: http://bit.ly/y8pvBn -- the Kapalua Resort also offers excellent tennis facilities as well as access to more great snorkeling sites in Honolu'a Bay. The other region I'd look at would be the Caribbean, with too many resorts to mention here. To help with your research, here's a link to an article detailing Away.com's top-ten snorkeling spots: http://bit.ly/j4SOla. You can pretty much rest assured that you'll find a suitable resort in most, if not all, of these recommended places. Off the top of my head, I'd recommend BVI's Rosewood Little Dix Bay, The Ritz-Carlton, Grand Cayman, or Bonaire's Harbour Village Beach Club.

    Kids of all ages are allowed on the Disney cruises, though an optimal age would be one in which kids can enjoy the many entertainment shows or activities.

    You'll have a great time on any cruise; I've never been on a bad one. I never take less than a 7 day cruise now and still am just getting to finally know the ship by the time I leave. Shorter cruises, even 5 days, seem to end just after I get there. The Southern Caribbean route is my favorite so far and St. Marteen is my favorite island although many others also have fun things to do and nice scenery as well. St Lucia is very nice as well. Most of the lines offer plenty of fun but there do seem to be more kiddies on Carnival so if this bothers you stay away. The kid density is much better if you go when they are in school however when most families don't schedule vacations. I personally like Carnival but thought Royal Caribbean provided a 'classier' ride. Depends on your taste, Carnival is more of a 'party' boat. If you like tours be sure to check out the reviews on line. I've found great tours not provided by the cruise lines that gave much more at a better price but you have to do your research to find them. I think you;'l find a great romantic time at sea!
