What should we do?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Going the Eastern route: St. Maarten, St. Thomas, San Juan, and Nassau. Wondering if anyone has any suggestions of what we MUST SEE? We are looking at doing mostly beach days with some shopping, just wondering if there is anything we shouldn't miss in any of these ports? Best beaches??

Hi gnelson! Welcome to Cruise Crazies!

I have been to all these ports, but it's been quite a few years. In San Juan we toured the El Morrow fortress in "Old San Juan." That's a very interesting place to see. Some people like to tour the "El Yunke Rain Forest." We never made it there, but I would like to if we ever go back. Other than that we just walked around Old San Juan and shopped. Another time when we were there after dark, we just went to a large hotel and casino and spent some time .

We didn't have a lot of time there on that cruise. I think it was the Coronado Beach Hotel and Casino. I remember they had an open to the air bar next to the casino, and it overlooked a bay or something. It was a long time ago. They had the best mai-tais, then.

In St. Thomas, Megans Bay is a beautiful beach. We toured the island and stopped at Bluebeard's Castle and then did some shopping downtown. In St Martin/St. Marten, we also took a tour of the island, and then we stopped at a really nice beach. Sorry, but I can't remember the name. It wasn't the nude beach, though. LOL

Nassau was a long time ago for us, too. We toured some of the town and stopped at the straw market to shop, and then we went over to a casino, and I think it's the area now where the big "Atlantis" hotel area is now.

Hopefully, there's someone here who has been to these ports more recently than I who can give you some ideas.

Have fun on your cruise!

When we went to St. Thomas .

The first thing we did was jump into a Helicopter and get the arial view. What a fantastic ride.....Its a little pricey but unreal.

After the flight we walked the shopping district and even bought the BH a nice necklace.

After that we took the tram to Paradise point and grabbed a bushwacker. IT was great.

In San juan we did the Bacardi/ city tour.....Save your money and do something else.

Our best stop in San Juan was Senior Frogs and then trying to walk back to the ship.
