Ports of call

San Juan, Puerto Rico

5 out of 5
Old San Juan was our favorite. There is still hurricane damage but it was intersting to learn about the damage and recovery. We did an excursion thru the ship to tour old and new San Juan and the transport us to the airport.

Frederiksted, St. Croix, U.S.V.I.

This island needs visitors spending money. They have much recovery needed. We took an island tour when we entered the port. It was very educational and interesting.

Philipsburg, St. Maarten

Quite a mess on this island. Orient beach is closed but our tour kept us interested with two beach stops.

Fort-De-France, Martinique

5 out of 5
We loved this island. The tour of the rum distillery, north beach, ruins, and rain forest was unmissable. Beautiful waterfalls.

Bridgetown, Barbados

5 out of 5
We took an island highlights tour. Very enjoyable island. Pirates Cove was a good stop.

St. George's, Grenada

4 out of 5
Our tour was very organized but this was the only island where the panhandlers were a bit much. They really seem to need the money. We saw the waterfall, fort, and Anse beach. This was my favorite beach during the cruise.
