Cruise started and ended here and there is loads to do in Barbados, even if you just stay in Bridgetown. You will see why it is called Little England immediately; market town, signposts to Hastings! Georgian houses, Parliament Square...cricket!
Heroes square is the heart of the town, where Parliament meets, the focal point being the statue of Nelson, who spent some time in the Caribbean islands as he was in charge of the naval station in Antigua.
The marina, and the museum are worth spending time at, so is a walk around Queens Park.
I paid $50 to go out to sea for the day and swim with turtles, it was one of the best days of my life! I actually held on to the back of an enormous turtle and he took me for a ride.The guides were friendly and informative and handed out rum punches on the return journey, so most of us were quite merry on return.
if you are staying on the island, not cruising, it is only 21 miles long and 14 wide, and does not have the lush scenery of rainforests etc, like some other islands, but there are plenty of places to visit that are beautiful, such as Mt Hillaby.
