San Juan
Port Rating: 4.0 out of 5+
Although the ship got into old San Juan at 3:00pm we still had an enjoyable time. We walked up to fort San Cristobal. What an amazing old fort. After that we walked over to get Pina Coladas at Baraccini's. This was recommended on our Roll Call and was well worth the trip.

St. Thomas
Eco Tour Rating: 5.0 out of 5+
The ferry ride over to St John's was faster then normal due to the usual ferry being out of service, so that was a big plus. The eco hike was ok, but we had a few people that should not have taken the tour and they slowed us down. The guide didn't really pay much attention to them so some of us had to hang back and help them over the rough parts of the trail. Because of this we missed some of the Eco tour its self. They would stop and the guide would point something out, by the time we caught up to them they would start moving again and we would miss the tour. But the Beach part was great!!

St. Martin
Beach Break Rating: 5+ out of 5+
This is definitely one of my favorite excursions! The lounge chairs are comfortable, the umbrella's are big, and the food is very good. Well worth the cost. On the way back to the ship they will drop you off in town which we do and then take the water taxi back to the ship. Very good!

St. Lucia
Port Rating: 5.0 out of 5+
This was our first time to St Lucia. We booked the Mud Baths and Catamaran cruise. We were surprised at how long the bus tour was. It was very good. Lunch or Snacks could have been better. The Baths were ok, but the Catamaran cruise and swim was very good. We had a great time on this excursion that we booked through the ship.

Beach Break Rating: 5+ out of 5+
This Beach break was to the Copacabana Beach. What a great beach. And the Copacabana staff were very friendly. Definitely worth the cost. We will do this again.

We booked the Beach break with lunch. This beach was very nice, better then the last trip we took in 2010. The resort they bring you to is very nice. The lunch was very good. The only complaint we had with this excursion was the lack of enough umbrellas. I wasted a good 45 minute trying to get an umbrella. They would look to see who wanted umbrellas and then go get 4, stop and talk, put the 4 umbrellas out then look to see if they needed any more, go get 4, and so on. By the time they got to me they ran out! I did finally get one. They need to set the umbrellas up in advance and then take them away if you don't want to pay for it. This way you can get settled in and enjoy the time you have there. Still worth the cost.
