San Juan, Puerto Rico - The two forts are amazing and very interesting. Also, because of the slopes of the streets, Segways and very fun to ride there.
Ft. Lauderdale (Port Everglades), Florida - The Everglades is a must see if you've never been there.
Freedom of the Seas - Make sure you download the Passport App for Apple and Droid for a faster disebarkation.
Labadee (Cruiseline Private Island) - Make sure you get the "day pass" on the Dragon Tail Coaster. It's only $10 more and you'll want to ride more than once.
Philipsburg, St. Maarten - I was really disappointed here since my last visit about 30 years ago. Nothing now, except shopping and about 80% jewelry stores. We went to a McDonalds which had a coach roach climbing the wall.
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas - This is a beautiful island with lots of things to see and good shopping.
Nassau, Bahamas - Visit the straw market for hand-made items.
Ft. Lauderdale (Port Everglades), Florida - Our flight didn't leave until evening, so we took the water taxi and toured the billion dollar home area which makes several stops along the way to shop or eat.
Allure of the Seas - Tip #1) Get all of your evening shows pre-registered on line
Tip #2) Carry on your bags - if possible. It makes a much easier deportation
Tip #3) If doing MyTime dining - still go online and make time reservations.
George Town, Grand Cayman - Didn't get off ship because I've been there many times.
Falmouth, Jamaica - Dunns River Falls and Green Grotto Caves - Great!
Ft. Lauderdale (Port Everglades), Florida - Went to the Everglades and the Aligator Farm, where we saw shows and took a ride in an airboat. Great fun!
Labadee (Cruiseline Private Island) - Nice Island with lots of things to do.
Independence of the Seas - You have to get tickets (free) for the ice skating show, so don't forget to listen for announcements. It was probably the best of all of the shows.
