The flight time to Barbodas is about 9 hrs and if you are on a PNO charter ii is great, no hazzle you book your luggage in a your departure airport and dont see it till in your cabin. There are buses at the steps of the plane and take you direct. No immigration etc. Question on trips in Acaupulco do the diving trip on your own. I mos t of the caribbean it is usually cheaper to us local taxis unless there is a trip you really want to do. if not sure wait till you are on the ship. Have a great time the Pnama Canal is wonderful and if you want agood view going through get up front early as usually the seats are takenfor the day .

I have read your answers and was wandering if you managed to gain any further info via another source about the trips as your question was not fully answered. I have previousley used the local taxis at the ports on cruising hols and its fair to say we have had excellent service from the local guides who want to show their culture off to tourists and will not charge the high prices the ship will charge.It was hassel free and we determined how much time we wanted to explore the places we visited.
