We started out in San Juan on 3/15- the day before the cruise. We stayed at the Sheraton Hotel and walked through the beach area the afternoon before.
On 3/16 we boarded early and met the Cruise Critic group after the muster drill before dinner. We decided to switch later dining to earl dining after the first night because it just got too late. Dinner and the show- its was almost midnight by the time we went to bed. If you are getting up early for excursions, the ship leaves about 5 PM, so I would recommend early dining so you can get some rest before the next day. Good meals all the way except stay away from the veal cordon blue- a fried shoe would be better. St Croix- beach day right to the left of the dock when we left the ship. Great beach, $5 chairs all day and things to do
St Kitts- we went on a day trip with My Islands Tours with Javin- GREAT TRIP -HIGHLY RECOMMENDED Next day - Dominica-Nature Isle Explorer's-Dominca Most Capivating- Middleham Falls-Elvis was our tour guide. Great guy- This hike was the Batan Death March. Very strenuous. Great waterfall at the end, but you pay for it. Be prepared! You will be completely worn out after this trip. Next day- Grenada- Magazine Beach by Taxi- lovely beach- we were the only ones there for quite some time. Highly recommend it. Sea Day- Slot Pulls with the Cruise Critic folks- good times. Daily Happy hours in Michael's Club for Celebrity Captain Club Elite Members. We met new friends there.Last Day in St Thomas- Went to Coki Beach-via cab- $8 each. Another great spot. On our last day-we left the ship in San Juan and did the Bacardi Rum Factory Tour thru the ship-this is a great tour because it delivers you to the airport with a few drinks in you to go!
The crew did a great job, Ti-Ann in the Celebrity Captains Club is a true gem and if she is on board when you travel you are in great hands! Also, other restaurants are available. We went to Qsine- a new spot after Summit was Solsticized. $45 per person to dine- good food and lots of it in a Topas bar environment. The place was mobbed and you need reservations. Try it for something different. Summit also had a party for the Cruise Critic Group. They are very interested in what this group has to say and wants us all t be happy with out travels, fun and of course Celebrity! Good Times for all
