The Ardastra Gardens & Zoo in Nassau, Bahamas is home to a group of talented Caribbean flamingos who march and pose at their trainer’s command. At this quaint and friendly zoo, you’ll also encounter rainbow lorikeets, black swans, and Madagascar lemurs, among other small animals.
We took a Caribbean cruise on the Allure of the Seas, and on our shore day in Saint Maarten we visited some of the island’s must-see locales, including the iguana farm, the French/Dutch border, Orient Beach, and Maho Beach to watch the low-flying planes.
Here’s video of our excursion to Trunk Bay in St John while our Norwegian Getaway cruise was docked in St Thomas. The excursion involved a 45 minute boat ride followed by a short bus to get to the beach. The beach was absolutely beautiful and definitely worth visiting. Whether you just want to lay on the beach or go snorkeling, you should make your way to Trunk Bay if you get the chance.

The Crystal and Fantasy Caves are very beautiful. We had a great time exploring these caves in a guided tour. You can just do one of the caves if you like, but might as well see both since they are next to each other. We took a public bus, and walked to get there. You can read the detailed account here.
