SOUTHERN CARIBBEAN PORTS

SAN JUAN, PUERTO RICO
San Juan is traditionally known as the starting place for the Southern Caribbean cruises. Several ships do now sail on longer (10,11, 14 nt.) cruises that originate in Florida --- the majority of all 7 nt. cruises to the Southern Caribbean do begin in San Juan. The ships berth right in the downtown area, near the Old Town area, casinos, great shops and restaurants. Distinctively Spanish in flavor, San Juan is an intriguing blend of old and new. You'll be drawn to the open air markets and authentic Spanish restaurants that share the city with lively, modern casinos. Fort El Morro once protected the city, and now offers a commanding view of the charming old section. For those who can do so, plan to go at least one day early to enjoy overnighting in this lively city. Beach front hotels and wonderful golf courses are readily available.

ST. THOMAS
This beautiful tropical island shows up on the itinerary of almost every ship sailing with both an Eastern Caribbean and Southern Caribbean cruise. The Virgin Islands are the tropical jewels of the United States, with St. Thomas as the centerpiece. Here you will encounter a profusion of flower and miles of beaches just outside of shops catering to travelers in search of some of the best bargains in the Caribbean. Many couples choose this picturesque island for a wedding in one of the hillside chapels or gazebos that overlook the deep blue Caribbean, or on the beach, barefoot and in swimsuits. Either way --- its sure to make for a wedding that will never be forgotten by all who attend it. For those avid cruisers who have visited this island frequently, many choose to take the short water taxi ride over to St. John's island for the day.

ST. JOHN ISLAND, U.S. VIRGIN ISLANDS
(Not to be confused with St. John's, Antigua)
Beautiful St. John is the smallest of the three U.S. Virgin Islands. It covers an area of only 28 square miles, two-thirds of which is devoted to the Virgin Islands National Park. Although the history of the island is long and interesting, the features that make St. John so special are its magnificent beaches and its underwater snorkel trail. Hiking through the rainforests ranks high with many nature lovers.

ST. MAARTEN
There is a unique combination of Dutch and French here that resolves itself nicely in streets adorned with flowers and superb island cuisine. Hand painted signs in both languages invite you to become familiar with this delightful territory, shared by two sovereign states. St. Maarten is the smallest land divided by two countries in the world. The French atmosphere is punctuated with quaint buildings and sidewalk cafes. On the Dutch side there are flower lined streets and lovely courtyards. There you can also wager a bet at the casino or dance the night way. Both sides of the island have miles and miles of white beaches, perfect for swimming, snorkeling, day and night scuba diving, parasailing or just sunning. For the adventuresome --- there is even a well-known "clothing optional" beach. Shoppers have a great choice of shops to choose from featuring some of the best prices in the Caribbean ---- jewelry, clothing, cameras, electronic equipment, hand embroidery linens, and of course, local crafts.

MARTINIQUE
This island has been aptly described as paradise with a distinctive French accent. Martinique offers you delicious Creole cooking, and true to its heritage --- you'll find the finest fashions from Paris, exotic perfumes, plus fine china and crystal. The island is covered with rolling green hills and ringed by perfect white sand beaches. Mt. Pelee rises majestically in the background.

BARBADOS
The easternmost of the Caribbean islands, Barbados is also one of the most beautiful. It is another of the British influenced islands, and it retains the Empire's customs of afternoon tea, cricket and polo matches. You can stroll through the outdoor straw market or Trafalgar Square. The rum-runner cruises out to great snorkeling beaches are one of the favorites for many --- or a visit to the Flower Forest makes for a beautiful day as well --- not to mention just soaking up the sun on one of the many beautiful beaches.

ARUBA
On this delightedly little Dutch island you will find friendly people and some of the best white sand beaches in the Caribbean. There are lively casinos, excellent restaurants, and the Port of Call marketplace. Don't miss Aruba's fascinating countryside, dotted with cactus jungles, secluded coves and divi-divi trees bent in the direction of the nearly constant trade winds.

GUADELOUPE
The French island of Guadeloupe has two land masses joined by a drawbridge and dominated by a volcano, pristine beaches and sugarcane fields. There is an 18th century fortress, and bargains on French goods along Rue Frebault. An open-air spice market offers great prices in exotic spices --- or you want to sample French wines or some of the local Creole cuisine.

GRENADA
Unlike the sister islands of the Caribbean, Grenada is not dependent on tourism; it produces one fourth of the world's supply of nutmeg and mace as well as an abundance of cinnamon, saffron and cloves. This true spice island is one of the most lush, with dense tropical rain forests and green hills and valleys. The town of St. George nestles around a natural harbor and holds the French, West Indian and English cultures in a pleasant balance. An outstanding treat offered here is their famous nutmeg ice cream.

ST. CROIX
In addition to its lovely beaches, shops, water sports and restaurants, St. Croix offers a great deal of natural beauty to explore. Tour the island's rain forest, botanical gardens, wild-life refuges, nature preserves and parks, including the only underwater park run by the US National Park Service.

ST. KITTS
Authentic Caribbean foods and a peaceful setting virtually untouched by tourism are among St. Kitts most enchanting features. Breathtaking views are offered from Brimstone Hill Fort, atop Mt. Liamuigo --- one of the wonders of the Caribbean. Hiking and biking are popular modes of travel for exploring this well-preserved tropical island. Venture into the hills for magnificent scenery or walk along the miles of beaches, searching for your perfect spot or a seashell, a treasure carried in from the sea.

ST. LUCIA
St. Lucia is dotted with swaying palms, and blessed with warm, turquoise waters that are perfect for swimming. Stroll through the lovely shops in the Port Seraphine area of the Castries; or take a tour to Soufriere's "drive-in" volcano, on to the famous Diamond Mineral Baths and waterfall, set in one of the most beautiful gardens in the world. Rising dramatically from the sea, the twin Piton peaks have served as beacons to sailors for centuries and give St. Lucia a South Pacific atmosphere. Take a coastal drive beneath these 3,000 ft. wonders and stop to walk on palm-fringed beaches created by volcanic activity. There are fine restaurants in the lush hills above Castries where the views of the island and sea are breathtaking.

BONAIRE
The Least populated of the Netherlands Antilles islands off the coast of Venezuela, Bonaire is a place to enjoy water sports and observe nature. You will see thousands of tropical birds, including parrots and pink flamingos. Clear waters around the pink-coral reef island make it a superb diving spot.

ISLA MARGARITA, VENEZUELA
Once famed for pearls and pirates, this island just 23 miles off the mainland is now better known s a popular resort. Porlamar, the duty-free port and tourist center, is home to a number of elegant European shops. Those with an interest in the environment will want to visit La Restlanga National Park, where the bayous teem with unusual flowers and exotic birds.

ST. JOHN'S,. ANTIGUA
(Not to be confused with St. John, US Virgin Islands)
A British Leeward Island, the capital city of St. John's is a quaint little city with much to see and some nice shopping bargains as well. The island boasts more than 300 beaches, the English Harbour where Admiral Lord Nelson once ruled the British Fleet, many quaint shops, restaurants and a museum.

DOMINICA
Situated between the island of Montserrat and Martinique, Dominica is often overshadowed by its jet set neighbors. This has been a blessing to tourists, but a bane to the local officials who realized that in the wake of the last hurricane, the exportation of bananas was a somewhat fickle source of revenue. Limited shopping is available primarily from street type kiosks. But a must-see for this island is the rain forest. Best bet on getting there is with a private taxi --- in order to make the climb to the waterfalls. (Cruise line tours will take you to an overlook above the falls.) Definitely not recommended for older or less active people. Good walking shoes and an umbrella are recommended.
