5 out of 5
It was a great port, did an NCL excursion which was very well done.

St. John's, Antigua Did not visit port

Castries, St. Lucia Did not visit port

Weather, went to Montenique instead, had a great NCL tour of the old capital destroyed by volcano.

Basseterre, St. Kitts

5 out of 5
Did the train ride around the island. Tracks need some work but over all good sightseeing.

San Juan, Puerto Rico

5 out of 5
Amazing! Did a private walking tour through Cruises Only, best tour of trip!


5 out of 5
Smooth and fast. Terminal exit is congested due to all the transfers being directly at exit. Use the Valet! Worth every penny of the extra $20 for parking, basically right at terminal entrance and exit. No long walks with luggage across city streets to regular parking.
