Looking for good shore excursions. On the conquest we booked them on our own and they were cheaper and less crowded.Any suggestions?

We actuallly didn't go on excursions.We did our own thing. We caughtcabs for $4.oo per person to the Atlantis hotel and spent time at a localbeach in Nassau. We sis some shopping in St. Thomas. Next time we would get a cab to a beach and skip the shopping. in St Marrten we also shopped and layed on the beach which is right were you get off the water taxi.$5.00 per person. You will have a great time.

We did, however, walk to the local beach just down the road from Atlantis (i want to say it's called paradise beach?) It was gorgeous!!!! A man came up to us and made these cool drinks right in front of us (cut open the coconuts and pour in our drink of choice) so much fun!! Be prepared for lines though...we had to be back on boat at 2pm in Nassau and at 1 ish the line to get back on boat was the entire lenght of the ship!! I normally cruise on RCCL, this was my first experience on Carnival and have to say the lines were frequent throughout the ship (especially at the cafe for breakfast and lunch each day)
You'll have a blast though..It's a really nice ship

[$80 for a taxi ride and return for 5 people to the beach? Looking for good shore excursions on our own. Any suggestions? Thanks.QUOTE]Originally posted by kageyone:
Hi
Just finished the Valor, Eastern Carib. (jan1-8). Great trip and 3600 people on board about 1000 kids. Each port is a dock, no tenders. Nassau is a short stay, really hard to do much of anything. Get off the boat and it is time to get back on.
St. Thomas was nice, all taxi rides are per person to the same place. My sister and family (4 people) took a ride to Coki beach $80 return for all. We did a city tour and mountain tour, watch those roads they can be killers.
St, Martin was great, great shopping and great beaches within a short cab or walking distances.
We enjoyed St. Martin the best.
On board, the lines are long in Rosie's (main buffet for breakffast and lunch and dinners. Chinese was a good alternative as was the deli bar.
If you are off vacation times, lines should be shorter.
Cabins were great size for a ship.
Overall we had a great time.[/quote]
