I had booked the Island Tour with Lawrence of Antigua through emails but could not find him when I go to the port. Did not really mind because I will go back there. Very convenient and friendly port. As soon as I got off the ship I felt like I was downtown whether I was or not. To the left is a casino whose lounge was filled with people using the free WiFi. Too bad I had left my computer on the ship. I got some really good buys on fabric and slouch purses. Also got to talk to a lot of the locals while I was just walking around. Definitely want to go back and see the island.
One of my favorite places. Have taken tours several times in the past so just wanted to walk around the mall right by the port. Was able to get four cartons of American cigarettes for $100. Since St Thomas is a US Possession, we can bring back 5 cartons through customs.
Have also taken tours several times in the past in Nassau. Getting from the port to the street is such a long walk - feels like you are going to another country! Could not get WiFi to work no matter where I went. Made it as far as the Hard Rock Cafe and Tim Horton's and then gave up and went back to the ship.
