I was planning on going on a cruise next year and one of the stops is Antigua. I was wanting to know what people thought of Antigua. How are the excursions, shopping, eating? Thanks!

We took the stingray excursion and then went to Dickensons Bay - great day! The shopping however was not good, other than a terrific store selling all sorts of beads (necklaces, bracelets, etc.)

We did a catamaran sail/snorkel. It might have been the time of year we were there, but the water was full of jelly fish. I couldn't enjoy the snorkel from having to push them out of the way constantly. The water was clear, but I got out after about 20 minutes. Then they took us to a beach for about an hour. Thankfully there weren't any jelly fish there. It was a nice, relaxing time. My hubby had way too many rum punches on the way back to the ship, so I didn't get to go into town. What little bit I saw was mainly typical island tourist stuff. Like gg99 said, beads, t-shirts, bathing suit cover-ups. There was a post from Scott Taylor about Antigua. I believe they went to Pineapple Beach. They absolutely enjoyed the day there. If you do a search, by using the find tool, either type in Antigua or Scott Taylor and you can find his post about their excursion in Antigua. Hope this helps a little.

What month did you encounter all the jelly fish?

We went in October/November. We left on October 20 something, it was a 10 day itinerary. So it was either late October or early November when we were there.
