Things to do on Celebrity Constellation?

My boyfriend and I are booked on the Celebrity Constellation for Jan 15th (7 days in the So. Carib). We are a younger couple (late 20s), and were wondering what the not to be missed activities are on and around the ship? We have a balcony cabin on the penthouse deck. Hopefully that a good spot. Any suggestions on activities/shore excursion (for casa de campo, barbados, grenada, antigua, or St. Thomas)?? Anyone else booked on this cruise?
THANKS!

You will get in your room the day before all the activities going on. When at sea there are usually more activities going on. I am not sure about Celebrity though.

As an fyi, we have been to Barbados the last 2 Christmas's. Make sure you go to the Boatyard in Barbados. It is not far from the ship via cab. You pay $10 but get $5 back in chips for drinks, food, etc. They give you a chair and an umbrella. It is a great beachand there are trampolines in the water along with a huge blowup iceberg that you can climb.
In Grenada, we took a water taxi to a beach for the day. In St. Thomas we go to Magens Bay.
Our family goes to the beach first thing off the ship and then come back about 1 for lunch. AFter that anyone who wants to shop can go in the afternoon. We found its easier to be closer to the ship in the afternoon rather than being on a beach trying to get back to due to traffic.

My husband and I took this exact cruise last year. Same ship, same itinerary. There is only one day at sea. I am not a person to get to involved with the ship activities at all. We just hung around the pool that day. For excursion, there is an p.m. show at Casa de Campo. Not to be missed. It takes place in an amphitheater. It is just wonderful. One of the highlights of the trip. Barbados we went to a different beach than suggested. Antigua get a cab and go to Dickensons Bay. It is gorgeous, and there is a wonderful bar at the end to sit and have a drink. St. Thomas try a different beach than Magans Bay. We went to Morningstar Beach. Take a cab. On the LOVELY Island of Grenada get off the ship and take a tour from one of the locals when you get off the ship. Maybe go with other people and it is about $20 per person. A 4hour tour of the Island. They will show you how the spices as made. It is very interesting. It is so worth it then do the beach by water taxi. I would also suggest one night of dining in there specialty restaurant on the ship. It is wonderful and a nice treat. You won't forget it. Have fun.

This itinerary is a busy one. Only one day at sea. As mentioned all ready you will receive a nightly brochure stating all the activities. We went to the shows every p.m. which we enjoyed, and then to the Casinos for some gamgling. We are a tad bit older than you so I am sure there is dancing, and clubing to the wee hours of the a.m. I know they have theme parties one night on the pool decks. You won't be bored at all and you will have a great time.
