I just looked at the excursions RCCL offers in the So. Carib. last night on their website. Was interested in the scuba trips for my husband, but whenever one was listed, it always said, "This trip offered only on the following ships", and the Serenade wasn't ever mentioned! So I pretended like I was going to actually book an excursion (that's when you can tell exactly what is offered for sure on your particular sailing) and couldn't get the booking to work. So I emailed RCCL and asked about it. Today I rec'd. a reply saying the excursions are added just a few months before sailing and will probably come on line around the early part of August. So - until then, you can get an IDEA of what you'd like to do, but you can't be sure what the ship itself will offer for sure. Suggestions? We like the Trunk Bay/St. John tour that is offered at St. Thomas. Then in St. Maarten, Orient Beach is very beautiful w/many ammenities (we took a cab ourselves - and yes, there is a nudist resort at the far away end of the beach on your right facing the ocean. A couple of nudists strolled by, but by FAR everyone was clothed and there is much to do there. You won't feel uncomfortable like you might think. Believe me.) Also on St. Maarten, the shopping in Phillipsburg is great. (Marigot on the French side is nice to see, too, but not the shopping mecca that is on the Dutch side.) Antigua - well, we were just there for a meeting. Nelson's Dockyard and the view from Shirley Hts. is neat, but overall, I'd just go to the beach near Sandals or do a catamaran tour that circumvents the island. We haven't been to St. Lucia but plan to see the pitons and haven't quite decided what to do on Barbados yet. Have fun, whatever you choose!
