Port Rating: 5.0 out of 5+

Barbados is very popular and a great island to visit. You can easily hire a car and get round the island in a day, visitin Bathsheba on the East coast, Harrison's Caves in the centre, and all the resorts along the South and West coast.
Several beaches to visit: Malibu Beach, The Boatyard, Rockley Beach, Paynes Beach, Carlise Beach. Taxi drivers/shuttle services are very good and reasonably priced. The beaches are lovely.
Catamaran tours around the island are also very good, weather permitting.
Highly recommended Island

St Lucia is a lovely island and would recommend Catamaran tours around the island as very good, weather permitting. Also the inland island tour is very interesting.
There are several beaches to visit but Reduit Beach is very busy and commercialised now so try and fina another beach if possible.

St Marteen has great beaches and duty free shopping. The best island to buy your duty free. You catch a water taxi from the cruise termianl to the town. The beach is lovely and wide. $20 for 2 sunlounger, 1 umbrella and a bucket of beer - great value! We have done th island tour but found this to be a bit long and tiresome so would recommend visiting the beach and shopping.

St. Kitts

St Kitts is a very intertesting island. We did an island tour which took about 4 hours with a local taxi driver and other cruise passengers so had numerous stops and alot of island information which was very good. If you want a beach break then would recommend Frigate Bay as very smart and clean with a big hotel there.

Grand Turk
Port Rating: 5.0 out of 5+

Grand Turk has a beautiful long beach and a swimming pool complex just off this. The beach is just off the ship so ideal for an easy, relaxing day out. The sun loungers are free but drinks a bit priceier than other islands. Very good and recommended. Helicopter tours for about $50 per person for 20 minutes ride which is great value.

St. Vincent
Port Rating: 1.0 out of 5+

St Vincent seems like a very poor island, the beaches are not worth visiting - Indian Bay and Villa Bay are pretty depressing and would never visit again. Just opposite Villa bay is Young Island, which is a private island with 1 hotel on. You can catch a small boat across for $5 return. This is about the best place to visit as other passengers said there is nothing else to see on this island. We have previously visited St Vincent but took a boat tour to the Grenadines which was excellent.
St Vincent is a poor choice, would not recommend.

Grenada, the Spice Island. Most visitors go to Grand Anse Beach but it get very, very busy and very cramped so not very enjoyable. They have a good water taxi service there and back. The better beach to go to is Morne Rouge but you have to get a land taxi there. Interesting town to walk around but you o get pestered alot by the locals and store holders so beware.
