My husband and I are going on our first cruise in November to celebrate our 20th anniversary. I am looking for things to do. Unfortunately I have a fear of water - so most of the activities out there are not for me. Any suggestions? We are going on an Eastern Caribbean cruise stoppping in Nassau; Bahamas, St. Thomas and Philipsburg,St. Maarten. Any advice would be appreciated.

Hi and welcome to cruise-chat!
First, let me suggest you check out our sistersite PortReviews.com . Here is the link to the Caribbean Poprt Reviews: http://www.caribbeanportreviews.com (just use the left hand navigational bar to redirect you to your specific ports).
But, since water activities are out - here are some suggestions:
Nassau - tour the "The Dig" (a very nice aquarium at Atlantis on Paradise Island), take a walking tour of Nassau or a horse-drawn carriage tour, visit Ardastra Gardens (a unique botanical garden).

St. Thomas - take the Paradise Point Tramway right across from the Havensight Mall, visit Coral World and shopping, shopping, shopping.

St. Maarten - take a trip by taxi to the French side of Marigot, visit the Butterfly Farm or spend some money in one of the casinos on the Dutch side.

Nancy - thank you for the information. I take it that there is always some form of transportation waiting at each port when you ship docks? I would have no idea as to how far it is to go shopping - or where to tell them to take me. Are most shoppping areas close to port - and is this information that I can also aquire once onboard the cruise. Thank you one again!

There are taxis and tours offered right at the dock. There is shopping there as well, but we usually take a taxi to the downtown area. The drivers have always given good suggestions for the best areas to find what we're looking for.
