Default Must stop shore excursions

I am 10 days from sailing the eastern route for the first time. (Been western twice) The islands that we are hitting are San Juan, St. Thomas, Antigua, Tortola and Nassau. My question is for those who frequent the eastern side. What are some must do's on the different island? I've read a few posts that have said, you have to stop at this bar and have this to die for drink. TIA!!!

I would definately get off the ship in St. Thomas and take a private tour of the island, also might want to stop at the public beach which is not too far from the ship. Also the jewelry in St. Thomas is very reasonable, I've gotten several pieces and plan on returning on the Liberty in February and we'll stop in St. Thomas and I'll get another piece.

When in St. Thomas, do the Trunk Bay beach / snorkling excursion. It looks like paradise. It is also rated one of the top 10 most beautiful beaches in the world.

lv2boat, was on the liberty eastern nov.12 and had a great time.
in antigua we went to dickinson beach had a good time. food and drink
were available and chairs to rent for 5 dollars apiece. drinks were 3 and 4 dollars. the really nice thing about this beach was going in the water
it was pure sand,almost as nice as seven mile beach in grand cayman
also had waverunners and parasailing there if wanted.
in tortola you'll want to got to cane garden bay as its very nice also
go toi stanleys bar there. it's supposed to be where jimmy buffet
wrote cheesburger in paradise. I have a friend that lives on great
camonae island which is about 10 minutes from the east end of the
island. after spending some time with him and his wife they took us
to marina cay for lunch.any questions feel free to e-mail me

so much depends upon what you want to do, what your likes and dislikes are. A good place to start is Carnival's web site, see what is available, what sounds interesting to you.
St. Thomas you can do on your own if you wish, or you can hire a cab driver for a few hours, ask him to take you to the beach and then some shopping.Check out the offical web site at www.vinow.com. St. Thomas and St. John Island have some of the most beautiful beaches anywhere.
San Juan - take a walk around Old San Juan - very interesting,then head up to Fort El Morro and watch all the comings and goings on in the harbor.Or you could choose to take a tour up into the rainforest. Plenty of beaches to choose from also.
Nassau - tour the Aquarium at Atlantis Resort- its amazing.
Or you can talk a walking or horse drawn buugy tour of Government Center, check out the Pirate Museum and the Marketplace.
