Eastern Caribbean Port Adventures

Hello!
We're sailing on the Fantasy Eastern Caribbean cruise in Sept. I'm trying to find at least one excursion for my family to do at either St. Maarten or St. Thomas. We will have DDs 5 and 1. Does anyone have suggestions? I noticed the Coral World and Butterfly Garden, has anyone been there?

Thank you!

You are going to have so much fun! My daughter and I did an Eastern cruise on the Magic last year in Feb. Different ship but same ports. We are booked for the Fantasy Eastern in Feb 2014 and cannot wait!

Here are the excursions we did:

St. Maarten - on our own took a taxi to the Butterfly farm and then walked to a perfect kid - friendly beach called Le Galion. The butterfly farm and beach are very close to Orient Bay which is a popular place. We asked the cab driver and she dropped us off right after dropping people off at Orient Bay. The butterly farm was neat but the beach is awsome!! No nudity and in a protected cove so very little waves and shallow. You can rent a chair and umbrella for about $10 and there is a good beachside eatery with food and drinks. Then just take a taxi back to the port. Very fun and also pretty budget friendly.

St. Thomas - we did the Disney excursion to Coral World that included the semi sub tour. We really enjoyed this too. Coral World isnt too big so you can pretty much see everything. My daughters favorite was feeding the birds in the aviary there. Also had a really nice gift shop! I didnt feel like the cost was too high considering what we got for the money spent.

Castaway Cay - we shared a Cabana with another family - AWESOME. And, we also did the stingray excursion which I would highly recommend too.

Happy planning and have a great time!
