Always hit Sapphire Beach. Shame a lot was closed this trip but beach is still beautiful.

They have really upgraded this private island since our last visit.

San Juan, Puerto Rico

5 out of 5
first time a cruise had decent hours in port. I am not interested in middle of the night stops and bar hopping tours. This time finally got to see one of the beaches. Will never go back unless I can hit one of those wonderful beaches again.
Don't Miss: Isla Verde beach

Samana, Dominican Republic

Found a motorcycle taxi who took us to a local beach. They caught a fish for us for lunch. Had a wonderful time. Bring your own raft - the water is great.
Don't Miss: Playa Anadel

Pros: Itinerary and port times

Cons: just small amenities missing - had to pay for cappucino, etc even in the main dining room, beach towels on 9th deck when debarkation is on the first deck for beach stops.
