Hi all, This is our first cruise. We will be on the Oasis of the Seas in October. The Cruise Critic is of great help to us. I was hoping to get some advice on what to do while in the ports. I think in Bahamas we will just take a stroll around Nassau as this is the first day and also a short stop. Atlantis seems too expensive for the short time we are in part. We are a family of 4 - kids are 12 and 15 years of age. What can you recommend to do in St Thomas and St Maarten that does not cost a fortune? Is there a beach you would recommend? At St Maarten we talked about going to see where the plans almost land at the beach. Do you recommend to go on the excursions arranged by the cruise line, or is it safe to go on your own? All your help is much appreciated. Thanks a lot.
