I sailed the Freedom 2 weeks ago, and wrote daily reports about the trip. You can read them with this link.....

We sailed the Western itin, so the report doesnt cover the ports. But St. Thomas and St Maarten have lots of tour options. Really depends on what you like to do. Or beaches on both islands are easy to get to without any tours.

Default Excursions

My friend and I are going on this cruise and have some excursions book.....in San Juan we are doing the Sunset walking tour. In St Thomas we are doing the Ride the View and also we are doing the Atlantis Submarine....although we booked the sub thing directly through the company as Carnival wanted $107 to go on the 11am one and Atlantis offers it for $84 each......when I have been told it is within walking distance from the pier. In St Maarten we are doing the Island tour that includes a stop at a beach to get some rays if we want. I am anxiously awaiting to go on this cruise......have had enough of this snow here in Ontario.

We did this cruise last year on the Triumph, and I will be on board the Freedom with you as well.

I have been to St. Thomas several times and there are many good excursions here - anything going to St. John or a catamaran is good. if you have time at the end of the day, take the cable car (can't think of what it is called)- it is located near the pier to the top of the island for some incredible views. For this trip i am thinking of doing the Bike/beach excursion.

In San Juan - depending on what your interests are....the ship docks relatively late, so in the past it is usually a shopping/dinner and drinks on a tropical island type event. I have found thathat the best coffee and vanilla are from Puerto Rico.

In St. Maarten there are also many good excursions. However, if all you want is beach, it is much, much cheaper to hop in a cab and head over to the French side. the shopping - jewellery, liquor - cannot be beat in Phillipsburg. Last year we took a cab to the Divi Beach resort on the Dutch side - much cheaper than doing it through Carnival - also we were able to stay much latet than the ship tour.

If you have any questions, please ask...

Every port is a good looking port though. Wish I were going also.
