San Juan
Port Rating: 2.0 out of 5+
We arrived late in Puerto Rico, around 5:00 pm. There was nothing to do and nothing to see at night other than police responders and street beggars with very serious health ailments. I wish they had skipped Puerto Rico and given us time in the British Virgin Islands instead.

St. Maarten
Port Rating: 5+ out of 5+
St. Martin was wonderful, and the Rhino Safari excursion was thrilling and awesome. I spent time at Happy Beach which was nice. The landscape is clean and picturesque. The local people are charming and pleasant. I love St. Martin.

St. Thomas
Magen Bay Beach Rating: 4.0 out of 5+
In St. Thomas, the ship was docked at Crown Bay which I did not like because there is nothing to see or do there. The port at Long Bay is located next to the best shopping in St. Thomas. The morning snorkel excursion with sea turtles and stingrays was amazing. In the afternoon, I took a horrible open-air safari taxi to Megan's Beach. The beach was crowded, but I thoroughly enjoyed delicious pizza and rum punch at the local bar. I took a different taxi back to the ship. The taxi fare to Megan's Beach was $19.00 per person, a complete rip off considering that they squeeze up to 25 people in one taxi. That's a total of $475 for a 15 minute ride through downtown, and they also expect a tip. Cruisers beware.


Snorkeling Rating: 5.0 out of 5+
Snorkeling and Turtle Swim was on the same excursion. It was great. Also, loved the rum punch.
