In the caribbean, ships tours will usually involve either a coach trip to one or two specific places of interest. Tours around the coast of the islands. Trips to the beach to swim for a few hours, and probably a Pirate boat cruise around an island at some point (not to be confused with a Booze cruise)! The places of interest will tend to be old colonial buildings, rum distilleries, view points or rainforests. All of these can be done under your own steam if you are just a little adventurous. Read about your destination, and make your mind up where you would like to see or go. Get together with another couple of two if you can, and hire a taxi. A lot of these take the form of people movers. and are air conditioned (so don't try to open the windows)! Tell the driver EXACTLY what you want to see and agree a price BEFORE YOU GET IN! They will then drop you where you want, pick you up again when you want, and take you back to the ship before you pay them. Make sure that you have the correct fare as they probably won't have change! This will cost you a fraction of the price of a ships tour, and you set the itinerary. Just one thing. You will probably notice that the journey back to the ship is done at a slightly less leisurely pace than the outward journey! Happy cruising.

Trevor Smith's blog

So 2019 to 2020 cruises will be well on sale by this time next week and a question quite often asked is what is the benefit to booking so early?We are all different and normally will be looking to get from our cruise memory and experiences something different to the next person.If you want a particular cruise, cabin, dining time, maybe it’s a group celebrating an occasion then these are good reasons to book early.Others want the best price possible and will wait for a late deal, this is...

Working in the travel industry people seem to think we are able to get all our holidays for next to nothing. The truth is sometimes we get a discount, but often it’s no more than Joe Public would be entitled to. Don’t get me wrong there are definitely perks. I am in a position where I have access to enter competitions that are not open to the general public and I have done rather well over the years. In the past I have won a two week holiday in Florida, a two week holiday to China...
