St. Thomas
Beach Break Rating: Not Rated
Beautiful white sand beach. Very clean. Water was a bit chilly, but nothing out of sorts considering it was February.


Island Tour Rating: 5.0 out of 5+
Stunning views of the island, scenic drive up from the harbour was fun, tasty Banana Daiquiri! Also, good shopping.

Beautiful lookout points. The tram ride up the mountain was fun, a little hot inside the cabin. The restaurant/bar at the top was very good. Awesome place to have a rum punch and take in the view.

We took a boat over to Virgin Gorda and spent the day exploring Devil's Bay and The Baths. Devil's Bay has the clearest turquoise water I have EVER seen. The scenery on the beach and in the intimate caves of the Baths is some of the most stunning I have ever seen. Photographers, bring your cameras! There are some amazing shots waiting to be captured!

We spent the day at Rex Halcyon Resort on their private beach. The excursion included a beach chair, two free drinks, and lunch out on the pier. Lunch was delicious and the beach was gorgeous! The only thing we disliked about this excursion were the amount of people trying to sell you different tours and souvenirs on the beach. It got annoying after awhile. You can rent jet skis, ride horseback along the beach (which we did, and loved), kayak, water ski/tube etc.

Emerald Pool Rating: Not Rated
awesome rain forest hike to the pool. Be careful of the slippery rocks. One guy slipped and cut his leg :( Didn't have time to swim in the pool, but got some awesome shots of the water fall, cave and pool.

Visited the Emerald Pool and Mero Beach. The scenic drive up to the Emerald Pool was incredible. Every which way you looked you saw something beautiful. From the bright blue sea in the distance, to the cascading cliffs of the mountains, to the emerald green treeline. Dominica was probably the most exotic and prettiest of all of the islands visited on this cruise.

Barbados
Catamaran Tour Rating: Not Rated
Beautiful catamaran sail around the coast of Barbados. All you can drink on board was nice :)


Turtle Swim Rating: Not Rated
Seeing and swimming with sea turtles for the first time was an incredible experience. The only thing that was kind of a hindrance was the number of people on this tour. When we actually got in the water people were clustered together (almost fighting) to see the turtles. This, I think, actually scared the turtles away. Once you separated yourself from the pack you could appreciate the turtles far more! I followed one for almost 5 min...keeping my distance of course.
