Shore excursions in the Caribbean with an elderly traveler

Jump to last reply

My father and I are cruising out of NYC in March to Grand Turk, San Juan, St. Thomas, and Tortola. He uses a cane and moves slowly, but is alright with a moderate amount of walking. I was thinking that we would spend some time at the cruise center in Grand Turk, and take a trolley to El Morro in San Juan, without needing to book a shore excursion in either place.

We are on Carnival and they offer a bunch of shore excursions in both St. Thomas and Tortola. and I think we might have more fun there if we took one. There's a sort of floating barge with glass viewers available in St. Thomas. This one is obviously accessible, but there's an expedition to Virgin Gorda and the Baths in Tortola which I think might appeal to my dad, but it maybe a bit beyond him at this point. Any thoughts or suggestions?
