Didn't know what to expect from this island. As it turned out, this was by far my favorite island. Took a tour to Emerald Pool, which was incredible. The foliage, fruit trees and scenery on the way to Emerald Pool were absolutely breathtaking. Also went to a volcanic beach, which was really nice. Not your typical blue water, but warm and clean.

Favorite port of call new excursion offered is the Bois Cotlette chocolate tour. Loved it. Another cruiser said they saw seven sperm whales on a tour with local dive shop. Apparently there are resident whales that stay year round. That will be my next excursion in the beautiful Nature Island of Dominica.

This island is still recovering from the big hurricane that damaged it severely in 2017. The vendors set up near the ship were friendly enough, but walk just a street over and you definitely don’t feel welcome nor safe. I was there with two friends - a male from Jamaica and his wife who is black. The people of Dominica spoke to them and ignored me (I’m white). I also found it odd that a lot of vendors were trying to sell bottles of snake oil - literally snake oil salesmen! My husband went river tubing and said the areas higher up were dirty, lots of trash on the streets and such. This is not a place I’d want to stay overnight or be by myself.
