Hi, I can help with a few of these Islands as we have done similar cruises. Antigua- Shirley Heights and Nelsons Dockyard are really worth a visit, alternativley my Hubby and Father played golf at the Jolly Harbour Resort and had a fab time. St Kitts- one of my favourite Islands, must admit to just going to the beach and relaxing, however some of our party took a cat to Nevis and had a great day out.
StLucia- toured the Island,so much to see especially the drive in Volcano and the Pitons. St Maarten- shopping heaven!! Tortola- Cane Garden Bay beach, the nicest beach ever. Dominica- we went river tubing and had a really great time( all of us ages 10-65!!) St Vincent- we did a tour of the Island and then went to an all-inclusive hotel for a couple of hours R&R. What ever you do I hope you have fun.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR ADVICE Did you do your own thing or go on the organised trips, we are a party of 6 and were thinking of maybe hiring a minibus to take us out and about.
Which beach did you go to on St Kitts - or is there just the one ?
Hi there - try friars bay or frigate bay, and just as cheap to have a taxi for the six of you.
What appeals to one might not to others we like going to the French part of St.Maartens and on St.Kitts we did the train journey through what used to be the sugar cane areas a bit wobbly but you have space to be upstairs on the open top area are down in the enclosed part with some singers plus some eats and drinks it was a different experience which we liked. I love rum so in Barbados we went to the Mount Gay distillery but not always the option on the ships excursions we picked up a company minibus which took us there for free.
