Antigua Excursion Review: Catamaran Cruise with Lobster Lunch


In March 2023, we took the Antigua Catamaran Cruise with Lobster Lunch Excursion during our sailing on the Celebrity Edge. 

We were told to meet at the theater at 10:30 am.

10:41 am We were released from the theater and headed ashore. We went down two decks of stairs through the martini bar. You can choose to take the elevators just past casino.

By 10:48 am, we were lined up on the pier.

At 10:51 am, the excursion staff split the line into two groups of about 50 each. We took a 2 minute walk to where the catamarans were docked.

We board the catamaran. It was one big step over to get on the catamaran. The crew was right there to help. Then, four steps down if you wanted to sit under the overhang. The crew passed out juice and soda while we waited to leave.

At 11:10 am, we sailed away. We took a leisurely sail down the shore.

At 12:51 pm, we stopped at beach #1: Turner’s Beach. You went down the laddered set of stairs into the water.  The beach had white sand and clear water. Chairs were available for rent.

At 2:00 pm, the crew called everyone back on board. During the stop, the crew set up tables and chairs and began grilling the lobsters. They made sure everyone had a place to sit.

At 2:10 pm, lunch service began. The crew handed out plates to everyone. Chicken was available if you didn’t want lobster. It was so nice not to have to stand in a buffet line.

Lunch took about half an hour.  We headed back the same way we had sailed.

At 3:35 pm, we stopped at our 2nd beach: Deep Bay Beach. This is right by Royalton Antigua all inclusive resort. 

This is a busier beach with beach vendors. Barry the Barracuda made his appearance. The crew handed me a goggles so I could take a closer look.

After an hour, we left beach #2. The crew did a fun dance show as we sailed into the harbor. We docked and were headed back to the ship around 5:30 pm.

Overall, this was a great excursion. I loved how relaxing it was just sailing along. The beach stops were well timed and the lunch was delicious. I recommend it.
