St. Croix
Port Rating: 3.0 out of 5+
Just walked a short bit off the ship and went to a nice beach bar with free wifi and a nice beach with chairs. Then wandered around a bit to kill time before going back on ship. A few vendors with crafts but not a big presence. Not as widey visited as some other ports so hence the lack of shops/infrastructure.

Hired a driver for the day - Norman. Was arranged on the pier and took us to a local beach for the day which worked out well. On the drive back gave us a nice insight into the local herbs and their medicinal purposes.

Took the water taxi to the beach nearby and chilled for the day. Looked around at the shops and ate at one of the local restaurants which looked really cute but food was awful and grossly over priced! Our daughter loved shopping at Mr Table Cloth!

Took one of the ships excursions - land and sea to the Pitons. Nice scenic drive but a bit too much driving. Stopped at lookout points and lunch and botanical gardens. Was disappointed that beach stop was not right on beach as they said could not get close due to weather although saw other boats closer. Basically if you wanted to do beach you had to jump off the boat and swim around 40 feet! Most on boat opted not to due to limited time! Beach was not even that nice - passed others much nicer enroute. At $99 per person not great value for money in typical cruise ship excursion fashion.

Turtle Swim Rating: 5.0 out of 5+
Highlight of our cruise getting to swim with the turtles. THe crew were very attentive to the less confident swimmers (self included) and made sure they got to see the turtles while watching out for their safety. Sadly it poured rain shortly after and we had to return to shore without the scheduled beach break but the turtles were amazing to see!
