The Royal Caribbean Singers and Dancers were great and the highlight of the cruise was to enjoy the talents of the acapella group: MO5aic!

Magens Bay Beach Getaway excursion: able to snorkel by swimming from the beach to where the catamarans had anchored...lots

Basseterre, St. Kitts

5 out of 5
Lost out on our pre-arranged excursion of "Snorkel St. Kitts" as not enough people signed- up. But we took a tour through "Annies" of the ship of the island and it was well worth it...toured the magnificent fort and island.

St. John's, Antigua

2 out of 5
Antigua Beach Express: nice if all you want to do is bask in the sun and swim...no snorkeling allowed and watch out for the wave runners!

Castries, St. Lucia

5 out of 5
Pitons Cruise & Snorkel: Great catamaran cruise from the port around the tip of St. Kitts to the Pitons and snorkeling in a protected estuary...watch out for the rocks and gravel before you swim out.

Bridgetown, Barbados

5 out of 5
Walked the town and visited the churches and Parliament building and the Friday Food Markets.

Disembarkation

5 out of 5
Quick...1st off at 7:20 am and to the airport with plenty of time to make a 10:55 am flight!
