Tortola We got off the ship and took a cab to the ferry station (we should've walked, it's not that far). Took the Speedy's 10:30 ferry (it didn't leave until almost 11) to Virgin Gorda (it's about a 35 minute ride). Got off and Speedy's had shuttles for us to take us to the Baths (about 10 minute drive). There is a $3 fee to get into the Baths and it's a rocky walk down to them. At the Baths is a small bar where you can eat and drink, a small beach and the Baths themselves. The Baths were awesome, a must see. You crawl, climb and snake your way through them. I definitely recommend bring water shoes and a water camera!! When we got back to Tortola we stopped at Pusser's Pub (across the street from the ferry) had some drinks and food. Very good. Try the painkiller...it's a doozy!!
Antigua Took a cab to Dickinson Beach (about a 20-30 minute drive). Have the driver drop you off past the Sandals Resort by Sneaky Pete's. There are 2 bars right there where you can eat, drink and rent chairs & umbrellas. You can also rent jet skis or go for a banana boat ride. Right by Sneaky Pete's is an open air market with cute things to sell. After our day at the beach we had one of the workers call us a cab and went to the downtown area for a little shopping. It was a very nice day. Barbados Walk outside the port area to grab a taxi and it will save you about $2-$3 per person. We went to Rockley Beach...Not really much to do here. A few vendor huts and a small shopping center about 2 blocks away...not much there.
St. Lucia We ended up tendering to port, which we did not expect to do. Booked with Cosol Tours before we left for $65 per person. Cosol was waiting for us inside the port terminal. Yellow Bird (Cosol's brother) was our tour guide. He did an excellent job. We saw the entire island and tried a ton of different local foods all throughout the day. They advertise that there is a mobile bar that goes with you, but it only meets you twice during the trip. Take a small cooler and at the first food tasting grab a few beers/water/pops to take with you...they are more than happy to oblige. I would definitely recommend this trip if you want to see the island and everything it has to offer. A word of warning...the roads are winding and you are changing elevations, so take your motion sickness medicine if you are prone to problems. Yellow Bird did a wonderful job explaining everything about the island and answering our questions. He stopped whenever we asked him to and was very accommodating to us!
Disembarkation We had an early flight (11:10 in Miami), so we did the self-disembark. We took our own bags off and got in line on Deck 7 at 7:15. We were probably about 100th in line. They started letting us off at 8:20 and we got through customs, out of the terminal, got a cab and at the airport checking in by 9:20. In retrospect we probably didn't need to do self-disembarkation (normal disembarkation tags started to be released at 8:30...those tags are available self-serve at 3:00am the day before you leave). Disembarkation went very smooth. Getting to the Airport There are shuttles and cabs right when you get off the ship. A cab ride to the airport is $24/cab. The shuttle bus is $10/person.
