St. Thomas
Port Rating: 5.0 out of 5+
5 dollar taxi gets you into town. The town is very pretty with lots of shop lined alley ways for the bargain hunters. The old fort makes a good photo stop as does the hill to the rear for a panoramic view of the bay.

Not a great deal to distract you in road town so we opted for a 15dollar taxi tour which took us over the highest point on the island to a beautiful beach on the far side. The driver (kitty) was superb stopping often so we could get photos of the wonderful views as well as singing to us throughout :D

Again not a huge amount to keep you occupied in port so we took a taxi tour for a couple of hours to the edge of the rain forest, passed the waterfalls and some sulphur vents before heading back to the botanical gardens. Driver was very knowledgeable and took great pride in pointing out the varied flora and fauna.

Probably my least favourite port. A few nice shops and bars around where the ship docked but the town is fairly run-down but not without it's charm.

Spent a pleasant morning in Bridgetown which is about 15minutes walk along the seafront from the boat. Plenty of great buildings worth snapping and a good hustle and bustle in the town centre

Favourite port - beautiful beach 15minutes walk from the ship with turquoise sea. We hired 2beds, umbrella and got 4 bottles of corona for 20dollars. We spent a very pleasant day swimming and enjoying the sun. Plenty of shops as with most ports for those who like that sort of thing. One tip, don't bother with the water taxi from the ship. Its easier to walk to town.

Did another taxi tour for a couple of hours - plenty of stops to take in the sights. Found the vendors to be a little more pushy here, but I guess being the last ship of the season had an influence on that.

We did a tour to the Flamimgo lakes where the brochure on board said there would be clouds of flamingos, if 15 counts as a cloud then yes we saw them :D that aside its a very different feel to the other islands we visited. Very flat and harsh, but with some beautiful scenery none the less.

Aruba - we had been here previously and wandered to our favourite spot in the marina about 20minute walk from the ship. A great place to watch the lizards, birds and crabs come out to play. We then headed back and had a couple of beers port side before heading back to San juan and journeys end
