Hi Evelyn Barker, welcome to Cruise-chat. Dominica is a wonderful place to snorkel. Book the excursion to Champagne Reef. You can do the snorkel from the shore, but the beach is not like beaches we are used to in the Caribbean. There are a lot of bolders you have to navigate to get into and out of the water. There are some pictures in my Emerald Princess gallery if you'd like to see, click here if you'd like to look. In Barbados we always take the Tiami catamaran sail/snorkel, beautiful catamaran, great crew, decent snorkeling, good food (if you do the one that includes lunch), great beach break with unlimited rum punch. We did snorkel in Antigua and it might have been the time of the year, but it was loaded with jelly fish, so I'm not going to recommend the snorkeling there. Scott Taylor, a member of our board, visited Pineapple Beach for the day and truly enjoyed it. St. Kitts is a beautiful island, snorkeling is ok, but I really preferred doing the Batik factory tour and the tour of the island better. Hope these suggestions will give you a few ideas. Have a wonderful cruise and once again, welcome aboard!
I don't recall anything specifically by the pier, I just recall tourists being on bikes. I got curious and did some googling this morning and couldn't really find much other than this . Now I am wondering if I am confusing my islands!
They do drive on the left, which can be hazardous to those not used to it.
More than important be very carefull I know for experience it can be cheaper but can be a little tricky the islands are beautifull but is better to book directly from Carnival...
I had been two times on Dominica on Carnival Destiny but remember the ship does not wait for no one
