This weekend I was talking to my DIL about what we want to book for next cruise. We were discussing a Southern Caribbean. She has a great uncle that lives in San Juan, so we could extend our pre- or post- cruise by a few days.
We were looking at itineraries -- the one you booked and another one that includes St. Thomas, St. Maarten, Antigua, St. Lucia, and Barbados.
Any suggestions, since this will be our first Southern Caribbean cruise? We will probably book Royal Caribbean.

Well, I'd say that you should extent your vacation after the cruise so even after you get off the ship, you will have something else to look forward to besides home, *Also the airfare is cheaper everyday besides Sunday*
Because this will be your first Southern Caribbean, I'd suggest St. Thomas, St. Maarten, Antigua, St. Lucia, and Barbados on the Adventure because not only do you go to more islands, In my opinion, Barbados, St. Lucia, and Antigua are better than Curaçao *in shopping, Shore Tours, amount of time you spend there* and Aruba, mostly because it's just a small hotel area then it drops off into this weird Moonscape with no one anywhere else than the Hotel District.
Also, If you do book it, You will find it ALOT more fun as the Eastern and Western.
