Neil Down - Answered a Question by Francois (17 Jul 08 12:02)

Because there are a lot of ports with so much to do my suggestion is that you look at the ships tours, pick out the things that you would really like to do which might even be from two or three tours, cut out the inevitable ship shop stops and uninteresting bits then make a list. Go on the net and get a map and join up the sights then get a taxi and DIY. Some things are best done via the ships like snorkelling and sailing but most of the rest can be done, especially if there are four of you, in a more relaxed way without being herded and far more cheaply if you do it yourself. I strongly advise though that in Jamaica you only use cabs hired from within the confines of the port. Sorry I know nothing of the two parks you mention. As usual the secret is planning ..... Neil.

You can actually view and book tours directly online via princess website (www.princess.com). Also you will receive a very heavy book detailing all excursions and rough prices about 12 weeks before departure.I went to; Bonaire, Isla Margarita, Antigua and Curacao (among others) at Easter. Be careful with your choice of tour on Isla Margarita. Ours was a long and boring bus trip of about 3 hours (we got off once for 20 minutes). Dickinson Bay at Antigua is very popular, but go by taxi as it's cheaper. If you love sealife then snorkelling at Bonaire is highly recommended. Other recommendations: St. Lucia - Land and Sea Island Tour Barbados - Catamaran and turtle swim Grenada - River Tubing Hope this helps.

One of the best things personally at this time of the year is the food and celebrations associated with Christmas and New Year, so this week I have decided to blog about 5 of my favourite places to eat. Some on cruise ships, some not.Fed Olsen Balmoral. I always enjoy the food on Fred`s ships and Balmoral last year was no...

My final update on my recent trip on Independance of the seas is all about my dining experience.I can honestly say I was not disappointed with one meal I had.You can literally eat 24 hours a day.

Calling all Small Ship Lovers.

By Nicola Milligan

Nicola Milligan's blog

Cast your mind back to 2015. and the sad news when P & O told us that the much loved 710 passenger adult only ship ADONIA was leaving their fleet.Lots of the small ship lovers were devastated as so many huge new ships were coming onto the market leaving a vast hole for the smaller more intimate ships.We were told she was joining Fathom Cruises a line that enables guests to do something good to help out poorer countries. So Volunteers through tourism can help locals learn English and build...
