I can't wait - what excursions did you do?
So sorry I am late in answering your query about the excursions. . . .We had a death in the family, and I am just getting back to this board.
We did excursions in St. Thomas, St. Maarten, Antigua and Barbados. We did not do one in
St. Lucia. We wanted to see as much of the islands as we cold, so we didn't opt for any real beach excursions. In the first two ports, we did tours of the islands, including tours of historic areas. Both ended with drop-offs in the shopping districts. In Antigua, we swam with the stingrays. That was WONDERFUL. In Barbados, we toured the island and the Foursquare Rum Distillery.
I didn't hear anything bad from anyone regarding the excursions.
I highly recommend taking an excursion in St. Lucia. We decided that we just wanted to go downtown. Yuck. Castries made Tijuana look enticing.
