Nassau: Turn right into the main st as you leave the terminal building, lots of shops selling cheap local rum, end of street amazing market, about 50 stalls, all selling exactly the same, tat. Best option we've found, cab (most are white stretch) to Paradise Beach/Atlantis Resort (Google it). St Thomas: Every other shop is a jewellers (female shoppers paradise) Magens Bay is a very famous beach, among others, is worth a trip in a taxi (most are open pick up trucks) & they will wait & take you back to the ship. St Marteen: Great Port. More jewelery shops to cripple your Visa card & a new beach along the front of the bay. This for me is the better beach option, as the taxi drivers take you to a crowded beach, para gliding, jet ski, banana ride etc. Think Torremolinos, if that's your bag. I can't help with cruise tours as I/we never do them, but whatever you choose, you've got a great cruise experience booked. Wilba.
