Anybody ever been to any of these islands before? How are they? Our cruise leaves March 1 and we go to the above along with St. Thomas and St. Maarten (we've already been to both those places so we already know what we are doing! :P )

Any advice is appreciated!

Keep in mind we like to drink and are beach bums! :P

Tortola is beautiful. We've been there twice and done catamaran sail/snorkels. They took us over to Norman's island (vacinity), and the snorkeling was great. We also had a local cab driver give us a tour. He stopped at a restaurant where you could see the Atlantic and the Caribbean meet, it was sureal, it honestly looked like a line drawn in the water. The deeper color of the Atlantic meeting with the lighter color of the Caribbean. Then he took us to a beach where he told us Jimmy Buffet wrote "Cheeseburger in Paradise". There was a hamburger stand at the end of the beach. According to the driver, Buffet's yacht broke down and the drifted in. He ordered a cheeseburger and a beer. There was only 1 traffic light on the island. Right across from there is Virgin Gorda, it's another beautiful island. San Juan is steeped with history. Old San Juan is a great tour, Condado Beach section is fun, there are Casinos on shore, the Bacardi factory tour is fun. Great Stirrup Cay is their private island, it is a nice beach. Have a wonderful cruise!

Georgi-Just came back from that area on NCL. In Tortola take the island tour with the stop at Cane Garden Bay( when you come back stop at Pusser's for a bottle of Pusser's Rum)-in San Juan do the Old Town/New Town Tour (great shopping in Old Town) or visit El Junque Rain Forest-on Great Stirrup Cay-Party,Party,Party!!!
Bon Voyage
