Philipsburg, St. Maarten - Another beautiful island. We all went on the shipwreck cove snorkling adventure. This was great for all ages as well. Very calm water, fed fish, saw ship wrecks and then enjoyed beverages and sailing on ocean. Spent morning snorkling, went back to ship for lunch since you were right by dock and then took water taxi to beach.
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas - Beautiful Island. The parasailing is a must. We had a group of 10 ppl and they were able to accomodate all of us on 1 boat. Great for all ages 5 and up. Very smooth ride, awsome view and we all had a wonderful time (even the people who were afraid of heights and do not ride amusement rides absolutely loved it).
San Juan, Puerto Rico - We arrived around 5pm and most of the stores close by 6pm. Therefore, it did not leave any time for shopping in the chain stores it just left the street vendors. San Juan was very dirty, had panhandles constantly asking for money, and did not feel safe to walk around. I would not recommend this as a port to stop at especially at night time.
