Just finished the Valor, Eastern Carib. (jan1-8). Great trip and 3600 people on board about 1000 kids. Each port is a dock, no tenders. Nassau is a short stay, really hard to do much of anything. Get off the boat and it is time to get back on.
St. Thomas was nice, all taxi rides are per person to the same place. My sister and family (4 people) took a ride to Coki beach $80 return for all. We did a city tour and mountain tour, watch those roads they can be killers.
St, Martin was great, great shopping and great beaches within a short cab or walking distances.
We enjoyed St. Martin the best.
On board, the lines are long in Rosie's (main buffet for breakffast and lunch and dinners. Chinese was a good alternative as was the deli bar.
If you are off vacation times, lines should be shorter.
Cabins were great size for a ship.
Overall we had a great time.
