Hi - that was our first cruise - we went on the Serenade in Feb 2006 with our kids and absolutely LOVED it!! They are still asking when we can go back on that cruise. We (well my husband and two oldest ages 9 and 7 at the time) snorkeled on St. Thomas, Antigua and Barbados. The kids had never been snorkeling before and my husband was pretty inexperienced too so we wanted places where you could snorkel from shore. I stayed on the beach with our youngest. On St. Thomas we took a cab to Sapphire Beach for the day. On Antigua we went to Long Bay beach (sometimes called Pineapple beach too because the Pineapple beach hotel is there). I'm not 100% sure of the beach on Barbados, I think it was Payne's Bay - I know the cab driver dropped us off at a bar called the Blue Monkey and the beach was on the other side of it. We stayed on the ship at St. Maarten and St. Lucia so I can't help with those. I'd be happy to answer any other questions you have. It is an absolutely beautiful ship - our kids had a blast in the Adventure Ocean kids club and I'm sure you guys will have a wonderful time!

In Barbados go and visit Harrisons Cave if you've got time, spectacular.
