Overall Member Rating
An amazing experience for this family of first-time cruisers!!
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: Orlando (Port Canaveral)
St. Maartens, St. Thomas, and Castaway Cay (which is a pristine island privately owned by Disney). Of the three, I didn't care for St. Maartens' to be honest. It is a poor island, divided into Dutch and French sides, Dutch being the poorer and more run-down of the two. We went to a beautiful beach (called Waikiki Beach) on St. Maartens, but it was marred somewhat by the constant presence of local vendors trying to get you to buy their wares, but they were only quietly intrusive to be honest. And as soon as you said, "No thank you", they would move on without trying to haggle with you. St. Thomas was lovely. We took the tram up high so we could overlook the island and the view was extraordinary! Castaway Cay was our favorite excursion. It is just beautiful, and the water is so clear and the sand so clean. You could snorkel there, float in tubes, take bike rides, etc. or just sunbathe on the sand. They even served an amazing, huge barbecue lunch there for us all including all the fixings: burgers, ribs, coleslaw, potatoes, chips, dessert, ice cream, soda, etc....As you see, I could go on and on about this trip and how wonderful it was, and I know I have left out so many great things. But I would encourage you and your familiy to experience it for yourselves. You won't be disappointed!! Less
