Try the Southern Caribbean

SGVTribune.com: "Breathing room, salon specials and a nap are tempting to enjoy while the ship is in port, but when beaches are this pristine and inviting, and the shore excursions this intriguing, how can anyone remain onboard while docked in Barbados?

The easternmost of the Caribbean islands and the southernmost port of the cruise, Barbados (www.visitbarbados.org) offers some of the best beaches in the world, all open to the public by law. Two of the best, Brandon's and Brighton beaches, are actually just a half-mile walk west from port. A 10-minute drive the other direction takes you to the southern tip of the island, and this is where I finally lost my surf virginity.

Freights Bay is one of the top surf spots on the south coast, and it's easy to see why. A sheltered bay, favorable swells and waves breaking in about 4 feet of water where the bottom is mostly sand and reef make this the perfect classroom for lessons."
