We have departed from Baltimore on other occasions and love the ease of their port.
Departing from ports such as NY are nowhere near as nice and easy and friendly as the Baltimore Port.
We had an 11 night cruise that included stops at St. Thomas, St. Lucia, Saint Maarten and Antigua. Each island having something different to offer and enjoyed each and everyone.
Cabin is nice - everything in good working order.
Cabin Stewart Jonni was very nice and very helpful everyday!
We had found a taxi driver on our own and asked for him to drive us to a beach that was quiet -- he took us a Resort Antigua located in Deep Bay and the beach was paradise. We had our own private paradise for several hours. Taxi driver picked us up exact time we asked. Wonderful day. Look for taxi guy with a Sprite can on his head -- he is the Man!
Best deal for your dollar is to go to downtown via taxi and then get on the Safari Taxi ($1 Bus they are called)., We took a whole tour of the east end of the island (roundtrip for $6 for 2 adults) and you get to meet the locals and learn about their culture and way of life. Lots of shopping to do downtown -- definitely want to go to back streets to get some of the best deals.
I go to Baltimore / Fells Point several times a year to enjoy blue claw crabs and visit friends.
Always enjoy the ease of driving, parking and everyone who works at this Port.
