What was your favorite shore excursion?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

A photo popped up in my Facebook "Memories" today, which prompted me to post this new topic - what was your favorite thing to do on shore in any cruise port?

I've got several favorites, but I would say that this horseback ride on the beach in St. Maarten was the most memorable. I booked it independently with a family-owned stable, and it was SO much fun! Two of my daughters joined me - that's Jennifer in the red shirt up front, and Amanda (not pictured) is up front, as well, behind the guide. Being a horse novice, I was very happy they gave me the most gentle one, and in fact I was able to hold the reins and take a photo at the same time. How about that!

What's yours? If you don't have a photo, just tell us!

There are many but the best by a hair has to be our excursion to the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem. You can go under the altar to see the sites where Jesus was born and where his manger was. Experiences like this are no where else in the world.

Your photo is beautiful - I feel like I'm looking at an original work of art!😄 Someday I hope to go there.

@motherboarder That looks AMAZING! I have developed vertigo issues in my later years, so I wish I had tried parasailing - or any adventure sport for that matter - when I was younger.
