    It sounds like you got a tremendous deal! You will have an amazing time for sure. Hopefully you’ll do a TR so we can follow along.

    Good for you! Sounds like a helluva deal. I can only offer suggestions for St. Thomas. One of my all time favorite excursions was a quick boat ride over to St. John. It is beautiful with great beaches and snorkeling. We visited Trunk Bay when we were the only ship in port, so it was not crowded at all. And if Amy wants a little something pretty, you cannot beat the prices on jewelry, and I mean incredible deals, and it is all duty free. You two will have a ball.

    Sounds like a great deal Derek! You kids are going to love it.

    St Thomas is all about the beaches and snorkeling, IMO. If you decide not to do St John (still on my wish list), Megan's Bay is lovely, Sapphire Beach is also very nice, and Coki Beach is not as peaceful but has fabulous snorkeling. After my excursions, I usually spend a bit of time at the bar right near the cruise terminal. I think it's called Mojo's Rum and Surf Shack & it's sort of in the middle of the road. They have swings at the bar and the bartenders have great personalities and pour a great drink.

    I don't have any suggestions for St Kitts as we usually just wander around the port area. For us it has been the last stop on port intensive itineraries, and we are lazy by then. There is a little casino right near the pier, and just to the left of the main shopping area there is a little craft market where I have picked up some neat pottery. Lammie grabbed a taxi tour one trip, and said the island is beautiful. It is on our itinerary in March (last stop again) and we are thinking of taking the water taxi over to Nevisif we are'nt beached out by then. It is supposed to be gorgeous and have beautiful beaches.

    I can't to see all your pictures and hear how much you guys love it!

    got internet just so i could do some updates for my jokers of course!

    in struggled at buying a week of internet at $88 or so but i figured better to keep ontop of email as week went on or would be hellish to catch up once back.

    yeah deffinately contemplated meghans bay. also did see some catamarn or water taxi type deal for nevis as well.
    was strongly considering one shorter excursion at each place. regardless i am sure some excursions feel like herded cats haha.

    deffinately excited about the specialty restaurants each night!

    been being a good boy on the diet until cruise but sure scale will be a shocker when i get home.
