Hey! We're going on a cruise in May for our honeymoon and had some questions on excursions. First of all we really wanted a good beach to go to and relax. It seems like antigua has the prettiest beach of our options. Has anyone been to beaches in Antigua and how were they??

Second, there is a Beach Bar & Pub Hop in Barbados that looks quite fun. Has anyone done that??

My fiancee & I went Snuba in the Cayman Islands on our last cruise and he LOVED it. However on this one there is only one option for Snuba and that is in St. Maarten. Is this a do or a skip for a different excursion??

And lastly they're are some pretty awesome looking zip lines. Either in Antigua or St Lucia. However if we do a beach in Anigua we would rather do the zip in St. Lucia. Recommendations??

Thanks so much!!!

Well, Antigua claims to have 356 beaches... so you can do a different beach each day of the year... but yes, they have great beaches there. But the beach at shipwreck cove on Barbados was really nice too. The sand there was white and so fine it was like flour.

If you liked snuba, why not try the really thing and do a beginners scuba dive trip. They have those available at a couple of places you mentioned. You only go into 25 feet of water but to be non-tethered is a great feeling.

I can't help you with the zip lines as we have not done any.. my youngest is not comfortable with heights and roller coaster rides and that kind of combines both of those elements.
