Does anyone have any info on what a young, single girl can do in Martinique or Barbados and be safe? I am cruising alone and really don't want to spend the money on shore excurtions if I don't have to. I am going on the Destiny on 4/6/03. Any Suggestions?
In Barbados we toured the Malibu Rum Factory and then enjoyed their private beach, fun and cheap.
We went on the Jolly Roger Pirate cruise, fun and lots of STRONG rum punch.
We went on the Tropical Jeep 4x4 safari tour and that was worth the money. We saw some beautiful sights and most of the island. Our tour guide was most informative.
In Martinique we walked to the downtown area to do some shopping the first time. The second time we took the bus tour and were dissapointed with it. There are not any beaches real close by, you have to take a water taxi to the beaches (something like $6). The land based taxi would be about $60 each way.
