For all but the Barbados stop, the ship requested all passengers who booked ship excursions to check in at the theater where you received the trip ticket and a number, then sit inside to wait to be released according to the tour number you were given. This process worked very well.
Following two sea days, we arrived in Antigua around 9:00 a. m. Since it was our first time to the island, we went on a ship shore excursion - a Panoramic Tour of the Island (3-hours). We enjoyed the tour and learned a great deal about the island from the driver (“Tony with the Pony” tail), but it was a long van ride over bumpy roads. The tour included two stops, one at a resort on the ocean and the second at an herb garden. We purchased a few souvenirs in the shops near the terminal building. Unfortunately, it was a national holiday and many shops were closed.
