The cruise was very nice,but a little long at sea.  Because of the distance, we got to San Juan at 3:00 and found many things (forts and some stores) were closed between 5:00 and 6:00.  It also gets dark earlier there.  Then the next port starts at 7:00 in the morning.  At St. Thomas there are taxis lined up.  They fill them and then go.  Fares were $4.00-$8.00, and you could go to the beach for $8.00 each way.  No need to book a tour.  At Grand Turk the beach and shopping are right off the ship.  The beach is free and there is a huge pool on the upper side.  We took the semi-submersible tour there and really enjoyed it.  Our granddaughter (9) enjoyed the kid's program.  The food was good.  Our room was nice and things were kept very clean.  The ship is huge and it was a long walk from our room in the front of the ship to the food in the back.

It was nice because it was the least distance to walk. Be sure to have water shoes if you go into the ocean. We really enjoyed the pool.
