Default Adventure of the Seas Alternate Southern Caribbean

It's less than 6 months now until we embark on the Adventure of the Seas southern Caribbean cruise. We are going on the "other" southern itinerary which stops in Barbados, St. Lucia, Antigua, St. Maarten and St. Thomas. The common southern Caribbean cruise for the Adventure is Aruba, Curacao, St. Maarten and St. Thomas, and all the cruise reviews I can find review the more common itinerary, but none for the alternate itinerary. Has anyone taken this cruise with the alternate itinerary?

I'm really looking for info on Antigua and Barbados. We plan on visiting St. Johns on a boat tour while in St. Thomas, taking a cab to the French side on St. Maarten, and spending the day at a beach resort in St. Lucia that a friend has set up for us, as well as a 2 night pre-cruise stay at the Intercontinental San Juan Resort and Casino in San Juan. So if anyone can shed some light on activities in Barbados and Antigua as well as the Adventure OTS, it would be greatly appreciated.

In Barbados, go to Harrisons Caves. I was surprised how much I enjoyed this excursion, and since they have had renovations, it should be even better.

While in Barbados my husband and I had an island tour of 3-4 hours with an hour or two of snorkeling. We had only done the skn. once before, so were quite new at it. There is a sunken vesel in the area of one of the most beautiful beaches. The island was beautiful. I will have to look up the exact tour if your interested. i can also send a few photo's of the area if you would like.

Thanks for the info and ideas everyone, I like the idea of seeing Harrison caves, and I really like the idea of snorkling at a sunken ship!
