The Destiny was clean and well kept. ALL personnel were friendly and extremely helpful (especially when I couldn't remember locations on the ship). Plenty of space on the ship.

Not much to do on this island. Found a driver (Paula) on our own, and paid $25/pp to be driven around the island, rain forest, to the Emerald Pool, etc. Was worth the $.

Area initially around the port, wasn't real interesting. I stayed for only one hour.

The beach here was magnificent! Would love to come back for a week, just for this island. Again had a planned excursion not from the ship.
Don't Miss: Valley Church Beach

Had hoped to rent moped. None available. So we hopped a tour bus and traveled around the island. Informative, very nice views.

Went horseback riding. Had a great time riding in the National Park, and along the Atlantic beach. Water pounding onto the beach. Was beautiful. Be prepared to ride English (with helmet).

Beautiful views from all over the island. Blackbeards was so-so. We booked an excursion from another website (not the ship excursions).
Don't Miss: Magen's Bay Beach

Pros: Port to stop at, every day!

Cons: Not enough time in most Ports
