Husband and I will be on the Western in October for our 15th anniversary. Last cruise was the Eastern in 10/01 for 11th anniversary. We did one excursion then, in St. Thomas, and then walked FOREVER touring on our own. In St. Martin we took the shuttle boat, then walked for hours and hours on our own. We had a great time. But it was HOT. This cruise will be different. I can't walk or get around like I used to, as I fractured my left femur in 3 places in 2003, have a rod in that leg now, and have some knee troubles. I've also had some other health issues and have become fairly intolerant to extreme heat. So, this time around we won't/can't do what we did before. Also, we're not planning to book any excursions, because we don't want to be locked into something that I don't feel up to doing when the time actually rolls around. This cruise will be all about relaxing, sleeping in, going to movies, attending the seminars, enjoying our verandah, etc. BUT we would like to at least get off the ship at each port, to see what is nearby, and to be able to say we actually "visited" that port. I CAN get around okay, just not for HOURS, like in the past, and stairs are not my friend. I'd be good for about an hour, two at most. To anyone who has been on the Western, and explored what is right at the port or nearby, can you give me an idea of what is available at each port? Thanks!
