Grand Turk Island - Grand Turk was a real disappointment. It didn't help that another cruise ship was also there, resulting in thousands of people on a relatively small beach. We took a taxi into the historic town, which isn't worth the $5.00 to get there. Better to stay on the ship.
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas - Wandering around town is fun. Lots to see.
Philipsburg, St. Maarten - We love St. Maarten (had our honeymoon there 25 years ago). We took a combination bus tour/cruise from Phillipsburg to Marigot. A very nice way to see the island. Very friendly staff.
Princess Cays (Cruise Line Private Island) - Very clean. Crystal clear water. We weren't inundated by jewelry shops like we were on some of the other islands.
Juneau, Alaska - As Alaskans, we've been to Juneau before so didn't feel the need to do a great deal of sightseeing.
Icy Strait Point (Hoonah), Alaska - Hoonah was a great stop for a waling tour. Also, the history surrounding the cannery was very interesting. Lots to see and do.
