Port and Shore Excursions
So fun to swim in. You climb to a series of warm water pools, which feel great after the cold of the gorge. Everyone enjoyed these pools.
As above, we hiked over to the gorge and up to the falls.
Loved these. We hiked to them and swam in the pools. It was really pleasurable.
Drove through the rainforest as part of the above tour. Many hairpin turns on a two-lane road. Beautiful scenery.
This was a really interesting excursion. Called Treasures of Roseau, it included snorkeling at Champagne Reef, a drive up into the rainforest, swimming in the Emerald pools, and a swim in Ti Tou Gorge. Everyone on this tour and like tours remarked on how exciting and pleasurable it was. Swimming through the gorge was exciting, and the pools were wonderful. The scenery up in the mountains was beautiful also. Snorkeling at the reef was somewhat mixed as there were many jellyfish biting, but we felt we saw a great deal of the island.
Really just drove past them at the end of the trip as we were tired from all the hiking, swimming and touring we had already done earlier in the day.
The most exceptional part of the tour. You swim in very cold water through a cavern, then the operator throws you a tube and hauls you up to the waterfall. Really fun.
Very beautiful, very enjoyable.
We just grabbed a cab tour on the pier. The driver was not knowledgeable and a terrible driver. Went to see the waterfalls and the lake and Fort Frederick. Not a very good tour but did see some beautiful parts of the island. Grenada is a very scenic port.
We had read that St. Croix was somewhat limited and that going to a beach was the best thing to do there. We took a taxi, but could have walked, to Sandcastles Beach where we paid $25 for two lounge chairs, an umbrella and two rum punches. The beach was nice, the ship was in view, and we enjoyed the time there.
We booked through Travelocity which offered a $75 credit on an excursion. At the pier, without prior notice, we learned our excursion had been canceled. The Celebrity representative at the pier held a catamaran about to sail so we could join it. It was a fun day. We sailed to a reef, snorkeled, ate lunch on the beach, then sailed back to the boat with plenty of music and rum punch. I think everyone on the excursion really enjoyed it. We did finally get a credit for the money we had already spent on the independent operator's trip.
Always my favorite of the islands. We took a shuttle to Megan's Bay and swam in the morning then went into town to shop. It rained very heavily all afternoon until sailaway.
