Grand Turk
Port Rating: 5+ out of 5+
Second time here. You just go on the beach, right in front of the ship. Lots of stores, large pool also available (free) and restaurants.

St. Maarten
Port Rating: 4.0 out of 5+
We walked in the ship's area with numerous stores. Then, we took a cab (numerous available) to go to Marigot on the French side. There, we visited the flea market and walked around, sat for drinks in a restaurant, watching people passing by.

Private island reached by tender. Unbelievable clear and blue water. Beach chairs available for free. Noon buffet barbecue also available. Relaxing day.

Grand Cayman
Snorkeling Rating: 4.0 out of 5+
Same excursion with Stingray swim. Clear water, many fishes and clear coral.


Stingray Swim Rating: 5+ out of 5+
What an experience. You are about 30 minutes by boat from mainland and here you are in shallow sandy water up to your armpits at the most. We were about 30 people on our boat and there was some 7 or 8 other boats. All in circle around an area smaller than a half of a football field.

The guides carry some pieces of squid. And here come the rays, swimming between your legs. The guide takes one of them, lift it (app. 3 ft wide) on top of water and you hold it yourself. Fantastic feeling.

Having been there before, we just got out of the ship and walked in the stores area.

Port Rating: Not Rated
We walked around and then took a hop on hop off tour. We made the circuit for 90 minutes. Interesting comments. We never got off ourselves.

Then, we walked around the city, particularly on Duval Street. We had lunch in a local restaurant.
