Okay now I'm really jelous! Great intinerary, wow! Haven't been to St. Kitts but do write a post when you come back on here as it's not often talked about. Love Barbados! Antigua and Dominica are nice too. Can we all go with you? On Barbados we did a lovely tour of 2 plantation homes, Sunbury and Francia. It also included a stop at an orchid garden. I didn't think I'd like it but we both really enjoyed it. Our tour was a Holland America tour but you probably have one offered through your ship too. Antigua loved it, did a all inclusive pass to a resort called Occidental Pinapple Beach Resort, cause we just wanted to go to the beach that day, great drinks. Dominica was very interesting, did a rain forest tram ride which had some rope bridges you could cross. I'd never heard of Dominica before I booked that cruise. I thought they were talking about the Dominican Republic, common mistake, I'm sure.
Hope you have a great cruise! It won't be long now!!!
Thanks, Scott! I too thought Dominica was part of the Dominican Republic until our travel agent corrected us! I'm really looking forward to this cruise... The only bad thing is, we're going to get spoiled with 12 nights! We're looking at the Norwegian Gem out of NYC next February and my husband wants to do a 7 day...I'm like, I don't think that will be enough for us after our 12-dayer!
Thanks for the suggestions for excursions! We're still finalizing everything, there are just so many options! I will definitely post about St. Kitts when I get back. That's the only port where we booked a shore excursion; based on other people's feedback, we booked the scenic railroad tour. I'll write a review and everything too... and I'm going to take tons of pics, as usual, and this time I think I'm going to take some little movies...
Eek, don't know how I'm going to concentrate on work this week... :-D Lucky Bob (Berick1234) is already on his cruise, I bet he's having a blast right now!
