Another highlight of the cruise was the Clay Villa Plantation. The delightful owners gave the tour. They use tour money to pay for rehabilitating abandoned animals, some of which you can see on the garden part of the tour (they are in large cages, not roaming free). Be advised that the tour does have several steps in the garden. The house is decorated with the owners’ collections (which are interesting) and is not in 18th century style, but the house itself is original and in great shape. This place has a wonderful “spirit” and I would love to visit again !

We visited the Fairview Greathouse Plantation, with its lovely landscaping and rum-tasting! The guide was very knowledgeable and friendly.

Beautiful gardens, just long enough to stroll around and observe the batik clothing.

Nice island, although roads are a little rough. Interesting history the first time around. A second time may reveal some more history, such as Clay Villas. Probably a stay-on-board or short walk out after two or three times.

Romney Manor was a bit disappointing, basically some very nice grounds and a store selling Batik. There was supposed to be a demonstration of batik making but that didn't happen. This is a tour that would probably be cheaper to book on the spot and would likely yield similar results.

Grounds very nice but too many people to see some of the demonstrations.
