Hi, Has anyone been on the Eastern Caribbean with Princess sailing from New York? Visiting Bermuda, Grand Turk and St Thomas. If you have i would be grateful of any tips. My sister & i did our first cruise this year with Princess & loved it, problem being the flight from the UK it made it into 18 hours of traveling with connections. So New York is far better for us.
Many Thanks
Alison

Bermuda is easy to get around on the local bus service. The only place that stands out in my mind is Horseshoe Beach. It is a pink sand beach and truly lovely. It's been a long time since I visited Bermuda, but I still remember that beach. It's a colorful island, safe, and friendly locals. We were in Grand Turk last December. They've built a new pier and terminal area. There's a beach right where you dock and shopping available. We did a great snorkel through the ship. They took us to 2 dive spots, the first was beautiful coral and the second was a lot of tropical fish. My favorite thing to do in St. Thomas is grab the ferry to St. John and then a cab to Trunk Bay. Trunk Bay is a beautiful white sand beach, with all the amenities. There is a self-guided snorkel trail about 50 yards from shore. The water is crystal clear and warm (unless there is a storm in the area). If you'd rather stay on St. Thomas, there are nice beaches there. Megan's Bay, Coki Beach and Sapphire Beach. Sapphire beach has a lot of small rocks getting into the water, but it is pretty. There's great shopping in St. Thomas as well. Hope you have as much fun on this cruise as your last. It seems that each one we take is better than the last. We'll be on the Emerald in November and I can hardly wait. Best wishes!

Thanks Penny 3333, it sounds fantastic it will be our second cruise so we are really wise now, cannot wait to book. The only thing i can compare cruising to is like being a child again waiting for Christmas and counting the days. Hope you enjoy your cruise in November will speak to you before then.
Thanks again Alison
