Default Shore Excursions for the Southern Caribbean

My husband and I will be on the Carnival Miracle 10/22/07 for our first cruise (we our in our early 50s). Any suggestions for shore excursions? I really want to snorkle but there are so many to choose from. I don't mind spening the money as long as I get my money's worth. I am open to all suggestions!

How about a list of the ports you are visiting, I'm sure you'll get plenty of suggestions.

Oops! Sorry Donna...we will be visiting St. Maarten, St. Lucia and St. Kitts. There are so many excursions to choose from I have no idea where to start. Any suggestions?

In St. Maarten you could do the Americas Cup Regatta. Thats always a lot of fun and very popular. One time we did the Rhino boats there, that was also a lot of fun. If you just want to go to the beach, there is Orient beach.

In St. Kitts another nice beach is Turtle beach. You can get a cab in town to take you, very nice and scenic ride.

Default St. Kitts

St. Kitts has a train and Brimstone Fortress (world heritage site, nice view) that might be of interest.

I highly recommend Thenford Grey of Thenford Grey's Island Tours on St. Kitts. It includes stops or drive-bys of the city highlights and can end in a beach stop. The views and the fort itself at Brimstone Hill Fortress National Park are incredible IMO, and the lush tropical gardens at the Romney Manor-Caribelle Batik gallery are worth seeing too.

(try to get Thenford himself for your tour leader)
