Ft. Lauderdale (Port Everglades), Florida Departs at 4:00pm - Dec 02, 2016

"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
"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
"Take an open air bus for a tour ~ cost us $20 and was well worth it. Got great photos there!" - pepsiman6429

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
"Beautiful island! Take a tour to Cockleshell Beach, you won't regret it!" - Karencruiser68
"This would be a green happy face if not for one thing. Although in general the people were beautiful and the place was gorgeous, be warned-you will see monkeys that are trained to take pictures with people and for the most part they are very well taken care of, but I did see one handler that was mentally unstable and he was physically abusing the poor little baby monkey he kept tied up, making her scream and try helplessly to get away from him, which utterly broke my heart. If you see him, DO NOT pay him!! He is known by the locals as "Chazzy," a large, heavy set black man who steals tips left on tables by using the monkey and also tries to con tourists by taking pictures before he tells them the price-and he charges double what everyone else does. The other monkey handlers were super cool and very kind to their monkeys, I just had to make this review in hopes that it might possibly help prevent more monkeys from being abused. Thank you for your attention." - music55rachel

Roseau, Dominica Arrives at 8:00am - Dec 07, 2016, Departs at 5:00pm - Dec 07, 2016

"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
"Champagne snorkeling was amazing. The geological conditions cause these bubbles in the water like you are snorkeling in warm champagne... with lots of fish!" - katjam2233

"Can't say enough about the bird island kayaking and snorkeling excursion. We didn't actually snorkel, but we stayed on this beautiful beach while others did. The conclusion of the trip was worth the price of admission." - jimnancy10
