Depends what you like to do !! At Dominica, we have been on a tour from one end of island to the other,seeing rain forest, waterfalls, local dancers etc. The last time we visited, we went on the sea trip to see the whales, we saw loads of them, educational as well. Tortola...fantastic, very scenic. If your a beach lover, then just get off ship and jump in a taxi and go to Cane Garden Bay. The taxis our reliable and WILL pick you up !! You normally pay for both trips on your return journey. Great scenery on the way, takes about 15 mins. Worth doing a bit of a taxi trip on best sights, before being dropped at the beach. Margarita...beach right next to where ship pulls in, with bar playing local music, souvenier shops aswell. Grenada...another fantastic island..for the beach, just arround the corner from the ship is Great Anse Beach, shallow, safe etc plenty of sun beds, bars. For $3 get there by the water taxis that are found right near your ship. These will get you there and back, running throughout the day. (It is well worth doing a trip arround the island to see the sights.) You may get serenaded on the beach,!! they are lovely people, who will be very greatfull if you give them the odd dollar. Their woven baskets or hats are a good buy and they travel well, as they are freshly made from the palms. Once home they turn a golden colour. Hope this is of some use. Look up these Islands on Internet and get more info. Have a GREAT CRUISE ! and get away from these artic conditions in Britain !!!

We did same cruise in January, best day was Montego bay, Jamaica, in the morning we took the mini bus to Doctors Cave Beach, approx twenty minutes, cost six dollars for the bus & five dollars to get into the private beach, secure with no harrassment from beach sellers, brilliant beach and restaurant, bar with facilities, we told our driver that we wanted to go to the bird feeding staion after lunch & he introduced us to a reliable taxi driver who appeared as requested at 2pm to take us up into the hillside to hand feed beautiful humming birds, a fantastic experience, driver was with us for three hours & charged a very fair 100 usd total, you,ll have a great cruise on Sea princess, fantastic food and service in Riggoletto's, .

Sky Dive in the Sunshine state

By Steve Fuller

It’s almost time for my annual Florida fix. I do like to try and squeeze in a trip to Florida every year. If I can of course. This time I’m doing something a little more than just the parks.I’ve signed up to do a sky dive. Moment of madness, impulsive booking, whatever but I’m going through with it. Tandem dive of course with a fully qualified instructor. I’m doing this jump at the highest altitude for a Tandem jump possible which is at 18000ft.We all have things...

Norwegian Cruise Line to Add ...

I find it hard to believe that given the amount of family friendly cruise options around these days, all of which include swimming pools, some even large scale on board water parks that it’s not compulsory for cruise companies to employ lifeguards, especially when you consider some of the recent tragedies that have occurred.Norwegian Cruise Line have announced that it will be joining Royal Caribbean and Disney Cruise Lines in employing certified lifeguards at all of the family pools acr...
