We just got off the ship and rode the free trolly cars to one of the main shopping squares, and visited there for awhile. We then got back on and finished our tour around town, and went back to the ship. We could have gotten off at the Fort guarding the harbor too, but had explored it on a previous trip.
We took the 3 hour "Under Two Flags Island Drive" and it was very interesting to learn about the history of the Island, and how it was divided between the Dutch and the French. The bus was air-cionditioned, and comfortable.
This was a lesson to all that, if you go off on your own in these ports, make very certain that you are back to the ship by the appointed time. We had to leave seven people after the Captain waited 50 minutes. He had no idea where they were or when they would make it back to the ship. It turned out that they had been held up by a wreck, and could not get word back to the ship. They had to get themselves back to Fort Lauderdale to meet the ship when it docked the next Sunday.
I took the "Sailing & Snorkeling Cruise" that lasted 3 and 1/2 hours. We made two stops, and saw an old sunken boat, and then moved in closer to shore, and swam with some colorful fish. The sailing and snorkeling were very nice, and the punch coming back in did have a generous amount of rum in it. A fun trip!
This was a part of the sailing experience discussed above.
