Antigua cruise guide: introduction and basics

The Telegraph UK has a great series on cruising - including the newest article for Antigua:

Antigua's cruise dock is right in the middle of St John's and can cater for up to four ships at a time. Passengers step ashore and straight into the refurbished Heritage Quay area with its modern shops and walkways. There is also a bandstand where musicians often play, plus public phones and lavatories.

Shops range from jewellers and perfumeries to boutiques and beachwear outlets. Passengers are invariably greeted by a crowd of taxi drivers offering island tours as they walk through Heritage Quay. Some ships also moor up at the adjacent Redcliffe Quay, which is more atmospheric with its old Georgian buildings housing cafes and boutiques.

This is from the introduction - there are also informative sections on things to do, and where to shop and eat.
