I just saw St.Lucia for the first time and is was soooo beautiful. We found another couple that wanted to tour the island. We walked past all the taxi's hawking right outside the cruise ship dock. ...

Well put- Washijoh

I just got back from that very cruise and didn't notice any over abundance of people from Puerto Rico. We usually stay in PR for several days after our cruise too, since we really enjoy PR and find...

Stick with Trunk Bay. It has the underwater snorkeling trail and is beautiful. To get to Honeymoon bay, the taxi's would charge you a fortune! Have fun.

Let them skip the jacket

My DH always wore a jacket & tie to the formal nights but will forego the jacket for this up coming trip. Two reasons- 1). It's rather warm wearing a shirt AND jacket around- and- 2). It takes up...

Another tip on tipping

I always like to bring a bunch of $2.00 bills. This makes a nicer-looking tip and is a bit unique plus you don't have to carry all those ones. I like to use this for tipping every other drink and...

About the excursions...

I forgot to also mention that the excursions do not cancel if it rains. Nor do you get your money refunded. It's up to you to decide if you want to go despite any rain.

I'd go with Martinique. The Destiny went there several years back. I'm SO glad they took it off their itinerary. The place seemed crowded, dirty-ish, and the people were rather rude.

Thanks for all your helpful replies

I always wait until they MAKE me put it on-lol! Also, if it's hot outside (like it usually is), I'll ask ahead of time if they'll let me go to one of the areas that has A/C. I'll try asking if they...
