We arranged this port excursion outside of Carnival Miracle (as we did a past excursion when on Carnival Conquest). Typically, the cruise arranges tours to Stingray City but in massive boat loads. It’s not our idea of enjoyment brushing shoulder to shoulder with a crowd to get a glimpse of wildlife. We read a lot of great TripAdvisor reviews (4.5 out of 5 stars based on 114 reviews) about Action Water Sports. It’s actually our 2nd time using this company as we had just been here just last month. We reserved 2 jet skis as single riders (Total: $220) through Grand Cayman Cruise Excursions (Island Marketing Ltd).
We received ~$600 credit in order to reserve this cruise accumulated from a Casino Bonus offer and partial refund from our noisy stateroom aboard the Serenade of the Seas in April. How couldn’t we take the opportunity for cruise travel before these credits expired?! Wouldn’t you SetSail? We were able to reserve Stateroom Cabin: 104, Deck: 9 which is my favorite ocean view room!

Our port excursion today takes us touring Antigua on a 52-foot powercat that fits 49 passengers but they set the tour with a max of 31 people. St John’s cruise port is on the northwest side of the island and our tour takes us exploring the northeast side. Highlights include: snorkeling, birding, Hell’s gate and a hike at Great Bird Island where we also had wonderful lunch.
If you’ve never been on a cruise and wonder what’s there to do on a ship, here’s a glimpse of what there’s all to do aboard a Royal Caribbean Cruise. We boarded an 11-night Southern Caribbean Cruise from April 9 to April 20 and every day we were given a newsletter of activities and things to do on the ship. They call it the “Cruise Compass”.

What is there to do on an NCL Freestyle Cruise to St Thomas, US Virgin Islands to Tortola, British Virgin Islands and Nassau to Bahamas from Miami, Florida? I’ve taken pictures of Norwegian Escape’s Freestyle Daily. The only missing Freestyle Daily is for Day 5 while on port in Tortola. Sorry. Also you can get a peek at NCL Mandara Spa Menu and their NCL Fitness Schedule. Enjoy!
What is Riverboarding?
"Riverboarding is a whitewater activity that is basically like bodyboarding meets whitewater, but on a beefier, more buoyant board. Riverboarders lay on their stomachs on their boards and wear a helmet, PFD, wetsuit appropriate to the temperature, …
We used our $75 Shore Excursion Credit from Avoya Travel to experience Coki Dive Center’s – St. Thomas PADI Discover Scuba Course. It’s only my 2nd scuba dive… first time recently in Cozumel… to experience yet another thrill of being underwater surrounded by tropical fish aside live colorful reef in in crystal clear, warm waters.
