St. Croix
Port Rating: 3.0 out of 5+
St. Croix is a U.S. property so that is a plus, U.S. money, U.S. customs. Fredericksted does not really have a lot going on, so be prepared. Rental Cars in the Fredericksted area are almost non-existent, so if you want one, make arrangements days before you arrive. We walked down a back alley street and rented bikes for 5 bucks an hour, not too bad if you are in shape, kinda fun and cheap. If in this port you might consider a ship shore excursion or get a taxi ride over to Christiansted, the main town. The only reason I gave St Croix a 3 is because it is U.S. - if this were another country I think I may rate it lower. My mind may change if the ship docked in Christiansted. WIFI Internet can be found or use your AT&T mobile with no problems.

St. Kitts
Port Rating: 3.0 out of 5+
St Kitts is nice, nice shops at the dock but VERY touristy and the shop workers follow you closely thru the stores. Car rentals can be found outside the main shopping compound at the dock but you must walk across bay st about 1/4 mile away. The Brimstone fort is a good sight to see, a small charge for entry, maybe 8 US Most of the beaches are volcanic black sand on the north and west. Lots of older sugar cane grows in this area. Roads are full of potholes especially on the south east side. They use Eastern Caribbean money but most every takes US. Found WIFI in a few places in the main shopping complex at the dock area.

Dominica
Port Rating: 3.0 out of 5+
Dominica is a great stop. Lots of nature, Lots of green. They use Eastern Caribbean money but everyone takes US. Poor roads, potholes, wet. Beware of Trafalgar falls, nice waterfall but they try to nickel and dime you with charges. About 8 a person to get in the park, restroom access a dollar per person, and don't get a tour guide,, they want to show you how to walk on a trail and then AFTER you get back they tell you they want 3 bucks a person. Very limited WIFI during our visit, only found it one street up across from the dock in an old rock faced building that is now a bar. Beaches are black sand.

Martinique
Port Rating: 4.0 out of 5+
Martinique is FRENCH,, very FRENCH,, didn't find too many English speaking people about, but all seemed very nice. They use the EURO here, and they like it,, most will take US but you might consider changing some money. beautiful island, standard of living is high here,, much higher than her neighboring islands, that makes is nice. a nice cheap day can be found by walking from the cruise ship pier around to the left to the main part of town and find the vegetable market, quite a sight, then walk down to the water front and find the ferry. it makes three stops across the harbour. the ferry is only about 5 US one way, so a 20 will get two of you there and back. Nice beaches over there, and a nice small town to the left of the last ferry stop called trois islet,, pronounced twas elay. Modern, classy, many shops and restaurants. A nice trip. Found WIFI in several places in town but not at the cruise terminal

Barbados
Port Rating: 2.0 out of 5+
A little crowded for my taste. The use their own Barbados money 1/2 the value of US. Most all take US dollars. Take a tour or shore excursion to help get yourself around, car rentals are available but not advised, streets not marked well, nor do they have good detailed maps. WIFI can be found at the cruise terminal

Grenada
Port Rating: Not Rated
NICE,, nice beaches, nice people. They cant really approach you in the cruise terminal area to sell you a tour so you may have to approach the tour operators. Try to find A&E tours, Eddie is GREAT, New vans, a lifelong local and knows EVERYONE, it helps. Eddie showed us the best time and gave a great personalized tour. Just what we wanted. Learn about the spices and take it all in. WIFI in the cruise terminal.

Aruba is nice, wonderful people, beaches, shopping.

Rental cars available at the cruise terminal area, and others near the airport.
