Made the decision. Thank you for opinions and suggestions.
We booked Royal Caribbean Jewel of the Seas for March 11, on a Southern Caribbean itinerary.

We have taken DD and GD only on really big ships before, Norwegian Epic, MSC Divina, Regal Princess. We went to the shows and mostly to beaches. We had planned on Adventure of the Seas this year, as GD is tall enough for the water slides, ice skating, etc. and they have a great kids program.

At the last minute, we decided on a much smaller ship, JOS. It has the same itinerary as the AOS and that was our main interest this cruise, to be off the ship every day sight seeing or having an adventure, so we did not need all the shows and things to do. Also, even though it has less for GD to do, we could afford mid-ship balconies on a good deck, and she finds that exciting. She was too small before.

We have been to some of these places before, but it was a long time ago, so any suggestions for things to see or do, good taxi drivers, beaches, restaurants, tours, etc. are appreciated.
My other DD lives on St Kitts, so we will go to her house for part of the day, but there are still things she might not think of for GD.
