Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
Shore Excursions-- You have to go to Trunk Bay in St John's. The most beautiful beach, white silky sand, blue blue water, so-so snorkeling. Great place to veg out. We took the ships excursion because you have to take a taxi to the harbor, get the ferry, then another taxi to the beach, it was easier to let the ship handle it. Celebrity needs to have more direction though when setting up the meeting places. We weren't as impressed with St Kitts. Did finally take a taxi to S. Frigate Bay for the day and it was OK, beach was not in great shape, but we had a few local beers and it ended up being a pretty good day afterall. We did a Catamaran Cruise in Barbados to snorkel with the turtles. Don't waste your time. Too many catamarans in one spot,too many people and only a couple turtles. The lunch was good, so was the rum punch. St Lucia, we went on a private tour with Cosol. We didn't have the best driver, there were about 5 vans all travelling together. He didn't say anything unless asked, and we would have like a little tour knowledge. We also seemed to be hurrying everywhere. The beach stop at the end of the tour was at a private resort between the pitons and they didn't want us there. We couldn't use any of the facilities and there was a guard who kept watch on us. Uncomfortable atmosphere. Love St Maarten, shopping is fun, beaches right there by the port. Been there several times and always like going back. We had wonderful weather our whole cruise and calm seas. I did not want to get off. Disembarkation was disorganized, not sure what happened. We were scheduled to be off early because of an early plane flight but we were put in the Celebrity Theater and no one came to let us in or tell us anything. We had to rush at the end. Still a great cruise and am looking forward to sailing on the Connie in October. Less
