Have you checked out our sister site, There are a number of reviews and suggestions for each of those islands at:

My family has had a timeshare in St Thomas for about 25 years. The shopping there is great- go to downtown (across the water from the ship) not the shops at the cruise port. Also, the flea market, where they'll likely drop you off if you request shopping is great for t-shirts and fake designer bags, plus silver jewelery. If you plan to stay on St Thomas, Maegan's Bay beach is the best although it can get very crowded there on busy ship days. Another suggestion would be to take the Ferry from St Thomas to St John (you'll need to plan the timing on this) Once on St John, don't miss snorkling at the underwater garden at Trunk Bay and a drink at Duffy's Love Shack. Have fun!

We were there in December. We did the excursion to Trunk Bay and were very pleased with it. We did the afternoon one which was not as crowded.

We particularly liked the snorkel trip to Pineel Island at St. Martin. Walter was a big help to first time snorkelers.

We went to Dickinson Beach at Antigua on our own. We got there at 9:30 am and were the only ones there for 1 1/2 hrs. Loved the feel of the sand and clear water. Do watch out for jelly fish.

We did the Souffreie(sp)excursion at St. Lucia. 5 1/2 hrs was well worth the time and money.

We heard raves about the turtle snorkeling trip at Barbados. We just went to Boat Yard Beach and had a great time. That was the clearest and best water of the whole trip.

Have fun.

When you go to St. Thomas you have to take the tram up the side of the mountain. And when you get to the top you need to order at least 1 (one) Bushwacker. We had two each and when we got home we emailed them for the receipe. And they sent it back to us. With the note: Without the view!

Get in the spirit and try one before you go...

The famous Paradise Point Bushwacker consists of:

2 parts Baileys Irish Creme
1 part Kahlua
1 part Amaretto
1 part coconut rum
1 part vodka
2 parts creme of coconut
Blend with ice

It just wont taste the same without our secret ingredient:
the VIEW..............

Have fun blending!
