"Getting in a day early made for a stress free start to the vacation." - Cruiser68549518
"I really like sailing out of Port Everglades. Royal Caribbeans Terminal 18 is a breeze to get through for embarkation and disembarkation. Most of the hotels are fairly close so it's not a long ride to the port." - jshea
"We live here and love it. If you are available here on the first Sunday of the month, go to the free music and jazz concert across from the Discovery Center right on the river. Wonderful talent from 11 am-2 pm. Eat at any of the fine restaurants close by and visit Las Olas Blvd." - dragondoll

Tortola, British Virgin Islands Arrives at 8:00am - Dec 05, 2016, Departs at 5:00pm - Dec 05, 2016

"We did the Virgin Gorda Baths Tour. This was awesome! Totally worth the $85/ per person. YOU MUST BE ABLE TO BE PHYSICALLY ACTIVE. It is a self guided tour on a lot of uneven surfaces. Would recommend water shoes or go shoe-less. " - Cait
"Take an open air bus for a tour ~ cost us $20 and was well worth it. Got great photos there!" - pepsiman6429
"pls send many prayers to this island *And all hit by the storms * I finally spoke to a friend on this island and it's just a complete mess and devastated . they need our support and prayers. Once they get the port up and running eniigh to hold cruise ships let's all book many trips to these places to give them all the travel and tourism $ we can give . don't worry if the islands can give you a tour etc... lets all think ABOUT what we can bring to the islands to give to them... I know all cruisers are Very generous and wanna help. lets all dig deep into our pockets and help these island's in all the ways we possibly can. " - cruznvacay

Basseterre, St. Kitts Arrives at 8:00am - Dec 06, 2016, Departs at 5:00pm - Dec 06, 2016

"prior to going to st Kitts, I thought I wouldn't like it. there wasn't much that appealed to me in terms of tours. we decided to take a taxi to the beach and hope for the best, worst case scenario go back to the ship early. boy was I wrong! !! took a taxi to south friars beach, I believe we paid $8/pp. our driver stopped along the way for us to take pictures and explained about the island. rented 2 chairs and umbrella at Carambola for $22. it was gorgeous! nice beach and beautiful scenery. some limited snorkeling right off the beach near the pier as well. the bar in the resort was a bit slow as it got busier toward lunch, but that's a minor issue. so glad i was wrong about st. kitts, and I can't wait to go back!!" - mikentara
"Last visit, we took a water taxi to Nevis, their sister island. Home of Alexander Hamilton, if you are a history buff, this was fun. There is a museum, and some shops, but a much less populated island than St. Kitts. A 45 minute ride on the water taxi, so go early and get back early. Also, lots of shops in St. Kitts port area. Other must see sights on St. Kitts are Brimstone Fortress and the batik factory. An entrance fee for each, but the views from the top of the fort are amazing. Bring your camera and wear your sneakers for the climb. You won't be disappointed. Batik factory has beautiful clothing and you can see how it is made. Enjoy" - Marcelle4
"Beautiful island! Take a tour to Cockleshell Beach, you won't regret it!" - Karencruiser68

"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. " - DominicaDeb

"Trip to the rain forest was enjoyable" - Mitz
