Our ship, the Norwegian Sun was anchored in St Thomas so we were tendered to the tender pier where we found so much shopping that we have never experienced before in our past times in STT. Then we took a cab to Secret Harbor Beach, the ride was about 20 mins long and we got to see the inner part of the island. The beach was stunning, the white sand, the turquoise waters and the breathtaking view were all amazing. The snorkeling was fantastic and only a short swim from the shore. The beach bar/ grill Cruzans on the beach was fantastic, and everyone there was so nice and welcoming. The beach was not crowded at all which was surprising because there were 6 ships including us in port. We will definitely go to Secret Harbor Beach our next time in St Thomas.
Dominica is a unique, one of a kind absolutely beautiful island. The motto "The Nature Island" is 100% correct. We took a tour van on a tour of the island. We first went to Morne Bruce which is an amazing viewing point where you can see the scenery, the ships and the amazing blue water. Then we went to the Dominica Botanical Gardens where there is so much to see and is absolutely beautiful. Then we went to the Emerald Pool which is a long drive away but well worth it. The drive is windy and mountainous and around every turn we saw a view more breathtaking from the next. Our tour guide stopped for us to take pictures and told us many things about the island. The Emerald Pool was literally one of the most amazing things I have ever experienced and is definitely a once in a lifetime experience. The pool and water fall was so beautiful. When we went back to the port there is a covered shopping area where the souvenirs are really cheap and also really nice and you can talk the people down in price a lot.
Barbados is truly one of the most amazing, beautiful places in the world. We took a cab to Carlisle Bay which was the most beautiful beach I have ever been to. The water is crystal clear and turquoise blue, the sand is pure white. At the beach there was a beach bar and grille which was really nice. We went on a glass bottom boat snorkeling trip which was amazing, we went to 2 shipwrecks and we swam with the turtles. Swimming with the turtles is an experience you just cant explain, it is amazing. There were at least ten turtles and one that was as big as a large suitcase. They were really friendly and we got to touch a lot of the turtles backs. It was an amazing day.
We have been to St Maarten many times before and everytime we go we love it all the more. It is truly beautiful. We always take the water taxi to Great Bay Beach where there is a beautiful beach with so much shopping. It has such amazing views it is breathtaking every time. It is a truly amazing and beautiful island that I am so lucky to have traveled to many times and hopefully more in the future.
