Grand Turk
Port Rating: 5.0 out of 5+

We love Grand Turk. This was our second time there. We booked a tour right off the ship with TRI Adventures. They were about half the price of the same excursion offered on the ship. Went snorkelling and to Gibbs Cay. We had a great time. The beach area right next to the peir is nice too.

San Juan
Port Rating: 3.0 out of 5+

We had never been to San Juan before. We booked a $10 tour of the island (the drivers are all at outside the port waiting to offer these tours). It was not that great. Took us to a few spots for photos and a small shop to buy souveniers. Then they dropped us off in town. We got a couple drinks and headed back to the ship. San Juan seems like a very nice port but I don't feel we really got to experience it.

This was our second time in St Maarten. St Maarten is one of my favorite ports. Last time we did Bernards. This time we decided to go to the beach on our own. We went to Orient Beach and had a great time. Make sure to walk down the beach some before getting a chair as they are cheaper the further you go.

St. Thomas
Port Rating: 4.0 out of 5+

We have been to St Thomas before. Last time we went to Sapphire Beach and took an island tour. This time we decided to try Magens Bay. We took a taxi. Taxi service could be better organized. They had people in our taxi going to four different places and it took us a while to get to the beach since we had to make another stop first. They should have put people in taxis based on where they were going and not the order they arrived. Magen's Bay was very beautiful but we will probably try another beach next time. It was very crowded.
