Nassau, Bahamas
Not much to do here, & not much time to do it. The whole itinerary was changed due to the swine flu problem in Mexico, so this shortened our port time in Nassau. We did a short beach trip & it was totally fine & a nice way to start the trip.
Don't Miss: none
Philipsburg, St. Maarten
Our power rafting trip around the entire island was cancelled due to heavy winds. So we did the bus-&-lagoon ferry instead, & got to see some of hte Dutch & French sides. Shopping was typical. Not the most informational tour, & there was not much to see,. Probably would have been better just hanging out on the beach.
Don't Miss: just hang at the beach--- that would be my recommendation
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas
We had a blast doing the 4x4 Jeep beach adventure excursion. 2 different beaches, & lots of fun driving the crazy roads (on the left side!). Our guide (the lead jeep of 8) was AWESOME... and sounded like Samuel L. Jackson! We also did the inexpensive ($200 pp) Sky Ride, which was just OK... not as good as hyped, especially since we'd already done some sightseeing. The view was nice though... till it started to rain on our way back down!
Don't Miss: Do the beaches. The 4x4 adventure was lots of fun.
