Hi Micshell,
When in San Juan, you may like to visit the old forts that are right in Old San Juan, very interesting, beautiful views. You can even walk to them from the pier area, or else catch the trolley that goes to them. When in St. Thomas, take the
Red Hook Ferry over to St. Johns, great snorkeling and picture postcard beautiful beaches, well worth the time to go over. We also did a ship excersion in Curacao that took us snorkeling, was quite good.

Have a great time on Destiny.

Take a tour to the volcano in St Lucia! The view of the Pitons is fantastic!

We are going on the Destiny in June and would like comments about the ship. time for checkin. How was the food and what was your favorite meal. Was the line long at the breakfast buffet. Was there any trouble getting deck chairs and were the pools big. Were the cabins soundproof to other cabin noise. Would you go on the ship again.
ANY tips or info about the ship would be greatly appreciated. THANKS so much for taking your time to answer me because Idont trust what books say .gerrbear49@aol.com
