Princess Cays
Port Rating: 3.0 out of 5+
Princess Cays is a nice stop. Unfortunately, due to the choppy waves, food and drink could not be brought in by the kitchen staff, so our stay on the island was quick and we got back on the ship.

St. Thomas
Island Tour Rating: 4.0 out of 5+
We took an Island Tour booked independently through Godfrey Tours. He took us in a bus all around the island pointing out various islands and beaches, with places to stop to take photographs. St. Thomas is a very picturesque island with all of the remote islands within boat distance.

Dominica
Port Rating: 3.0 out of 5+
Dominica was a pretty island. We stayed close to port and got some shopping done. They offer quite a variety in jewelry, if that's what you're shopping for. We had originally booked a river tubing tour but one of us had gotten too much sun and had to cancel and avoid the sun, so we did some shopping and stuck close to the cruiseport.

We took the Spice Plantation Tour booked independently with Mandoo's Tours. We were taken to a working spice farm on the island and made sure to bring home cocoa, bay and nutmeg. He gave us a thorough, enjoyable tour and enjoyed explaining to us Papiamento, an unofficial Caribbean language throughout Aruba, Bonaire and Curacao.

We got shopping done. We were supposed to go on a Drift Snorkeling Tour with Woodwind Tours but, again, the sun prevented us from going. We did lots of walking around and had lunch at a great little restaurant on the island. We all enjoyed the island.

Aruba
Island Tour Rating: 5+ out of 5+
One of the members on our roll call arranged a tour of Aruba with Sonny Binns which was outstanding. There were only 8 of us on the tour. We stopped at a gift shop, a natural bridge and various local spots. He also took us all over the island and did a narrative which was very informative and answered any questions we had about the island.

At the end Sonny will drop you off at the beach, the shopping area, or take you back to the ship. We opted to do a little shopping. We were very impressed with Sonny and would recommend him to anyone.
