So ... now that we are finally in our cruise year, we are finally taking a serious look at our excursion options. We will be on an Eastern Merrytime Cruise next December stopping at San Juan, PR, and Tortola, BVI. For the stop in Tortola, I think the Jost Van Beach day sounds great for us all (including our then 13 and 16 year olds) as it sounds like a nice long day in paradise (6-7 hours). Plus, my husband thinks that the Painkiller (some rum concoction) sounds like something he needs to have. Has anyone done this excursion, and if so, what did you think? Did you still have time to browse local port shops afterwards? Any insight would be greatly appreciated.
