Default Tell us about your favourite port

Enough about not liking Nassau, Jamaica, etc. Now let's hear about favourite ports and why.

For us is Victoria Canada. The charm, people, shops and the overall ambiance.

There are sooooo many good ones! But I really love San Juan, Puerto Rico, but not on one of those stops where you arrive at 4:00 p.m. and are only there at night. You must be there during the day so you can walk around Old San Juan and see all the historic and cultural spots.

I'd have to say St. Johns/Trunk Bay, just a beautiful picture postcard kind of beach, the whole island for that matter, would love to do a few days just there. I also enjoyed Hawaii, hope to get back there and cruise the islands someday!

I second St. Thomas. Beautiful island, beaches, great shopping, such friendly people! We'll go back there for a land vacation eventually!

not many for me to chose from. Liked Tortola a lot! You did not specifcallt mention beaches but I was on Maui once (on business) and found Mckenna Beach. Secluded, warm with crystal clear blue water. My all time fav I would have to say. Bob

I third St. Thomas. Beautiful beaches (especially Coki Beach), friendly people and excellent views (especially from Paradise Point).

I've only been to three ports but so far my favorite is Key West. Looking forward to going to St. Thomas for the first time in December.

Cheers,

Under the water, COZ by far and so far. But there' still the Indian Ocean, Tahiti, and the Great Barrier Reef to explore.

On land....hmmm.... No way can I choose!

Hmm that's tough, I liked St Thomas because of the beautiful beaches and Jamaica because it is a beautiful island with the mountains and greenery. We had fun in Cozumel but it is not a nice island beauty wise. Stateside Key West is nice but Miami is beautiful at night and love South Beach and Coconut Grove.

No surprise, I'm with jenn on San Juan because it's going home for me.

St. John is wonderful.

The most magnificent port entry experience ever? Sydney Harbor.

All-time favorite? Toss-up between Aukland and Barcelona.

Pamda will crucufy me, but here it goes again: ;o)

San Blas (I will never forget that day as long as I live. The Cuna Indians are very interesting and I love their houses made of banana trees. The gold noserings on the women are very unique. Children with trained toucans on their fingers and shoulders.
Then there's the Molas that are incredible works of art at very inexpensive prices. I love the dugout canoe rides from small Island to Island. Yes there is tremendous poverty but there are many riches as well, that have little to do with money.

Oh, Chuck ...

You're too nice to crucify. Slap around a little, but not crucify
