we originally wanted to spend a week in Antigua, but our agent recommended visiting it via a cruise. We liked the idea, but are first time cruisers and are not sure we will know the system of excursions well enough to make the most of the day. I thought of getting a day pass to Sandals??? We have snorkled many places and are doing that in St. Thomas for sure. What should we do in Antigua to ensure a great time. We love beaches, snorkling, exploring - hate shopping and pusher vendors..... from what we have read, the cruise excursions are out - we will explore on our own... any thoughts on that???
