Default HELP!! Labadee, San Juan, Samana and Charlotte Amalie

Anyone have any tips or suggestions for what excursions to take or NOT to take in these cities? I like everything form shopping to water sports so I game for adventure. We're sailing out on Grandeur.

I loved the waverunner excursion in Labadee, check into that, great fun and a nice way to see more of the country by water. Its pretty popular, so if you decide to do it, pre-book a time slot that you want.

Another question. how does the "tendering" work? Can you get off and on as often as you want? That will be a new experience for me.

Hi Pran,
The first tenders they allow cruisers with shore excursions off first. Sometimes they will give out tickets to get off, first come, first serve type. Usually once in port, give it an hour or so and you should be able to just walk off onto a tender. If you want, you can go back and forth, but easier just to get off for the day and return to the ship when your finished in port.
