We were on the Elation a few years ago and had a blast. I embarassed my husband by joining in the dance lines at dinner in the dining room. We were seated at a table for 8, the other 3 couples were really nice. We even ran into them on some of our excursions, so it was even more fun. In St. Thomas we either do a catamaran sail/snorkel to Buck Island or take the ferry to St. John and go to Trunk Bay for a beach snorkel. Trunk bay is a beautiful beach with crystal clear, warm water. There is a self-guided snorkel trail, fresh water showers, lockers, a couple of shops (not cheap), and a snack bar. Not sure what the rest of your intinerary is, but if you post your ports, I might be able to answer your excursion questions. Have a wonderful cruise!

To me the best part of San Juan is old San Juan. You can walk or take a tour of old San Juan. Also heard from other people that the botanical garden is a really nice tour. We haven't visited Grand Turk, we'll be going there in December. I'm planning on doing a snorkel there. Here's a website I've been looking at: http://www.turksandcaicostourism.com...nds/grandturk/ Half Moon Cay is their private island, so the beach is the way to go there. If y'all go snorkeling in Grand Turk, let me know how it was. Have a marvelous time!!
