Recommends Explorer of the Seas? Yes!

Labadee (Cruiseline Private Island)
We went to the private island excursion - very small beach. Wouldn't do it again but would definitely get off at this port. Would go to one of the other beaches next time. Didn't like the Haitian Flea Market --- way too pushy - felt like we were being attacked. Artisan Market was enjoyable.
Don't Miss: the beaches and water
Casa De Campo, Dominican Republic
We wound up in "Samana", which was horrible. Not safe - there were police at each tourist stop and you were constantly asked for money. Didn't hear one person like this stop.
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas
Exquisite....went to Coral world, which was good. Definitely tour around or go to the beach....beautiful location and people
Don't Miss: The Shopping downtown
San Juan, Puerto Rico
We only had a short time before having to be back at the ship. Port seemed friendly and well laid out on the maps
Don't Miss: Venetian Jewelers
