San Juan
Port Rating: 4.0 out of 5+

Because our ship docked at 3:00 PM and we needed to be back on board by 9:30 PM, there really wasn't time for an excursion. Lots of the tourist places stopped tours early. By the time we left the ship it was after 3:30 PM. We did take the free trolley which took us up to El Morro the fortress at the top of the hill. We were able to spend as long as we wanted here. This is an awesome place to visit.
We took the trolly back to the the center of old San Juan and shopped the stores there. (Others did walk to El Morro, they say it was about a half hour walk, seemed a lot farther than that and was on a high hill.) There is also a small casino across from the ship inside of the old Sheraton Hotel.
We bought bottled water for our cabin in the CVS right across from the ship and stopped in
Senor Frogs. This was the only disappointment of the whole trip. This place was for the twenty-somethings. A coupon was handed to us as we got off the ship to get a free margarita in Senor Frogs. It was such a con, they served me a full sized supposedly free margarita and my husband got a pina colada, then they brought us a little 7 oz plastic cup with the"free margarita." We told them all we wanted was the free one and not the other one. The waiter wound up taking in off the bill. It was definitely a gimmick !

Magen Bay Beach Rating: 4.0 out of 5+

nice to see and go into the warm aqua blue water, small beach but okay.

Paradise Point Skyride Rating: 5.0 out of 5+

Beautiful view from mountain top of Charlotte Amalie, they had a free parrot show at top of mountain which was very good.

Couldn't fit everything in on St. Thomas, it was a choice between going to mountain top or going over to St. John's would do St. John's next time.

Sapphire Beach Rating: Not Rated

excellent tour! Lots of beautiful things to see. After going on the booked tour, we took the open air taxis to other points of interest. The taxi's were $8.00 p.p. a well worth it.
Got off the taxi at the end at Paradise Point Skyride. $21.00 p.p. It takes you to the top of Paradise Point with a beautiful view of Charlotte Amalie.
Walked back to the ship from here.
Beautiful Island and great tour guide!

St. Maarten
Port Rating: 5.0 out of 5+

St Maarten is very beautiful there is lots to see. We took a taxi and explored both St. Maarten and St. Martin

We had the taxi drop us off in the little city outside where our ship was docked. There are shops here and casinos. Then we took the walk back to the ship where there were many more interesting places to shop.
