At Cozumel I would recommend the Royal Swim with Dolphins at Chankanaab Park. The park is a $10 cab ride from the pier and then you pay entrance to the park (cash only) we booked direct with www.dolphindscovery.com and saved money over the similar excursion offered by RCCL. If the beach is your thing then there are numerous, Nachi Cocom is a good place to go- Google it- have time for shopping in town and go to Pancho's backyard for lunch. If you want a raucous good time go to Margaritaville, Senor Frogs or Carlos 'n Charlies, all on the main seafront road. Anything you want in Cozumel is about a $6- 10 cab ride away from the pier.

If you do enough research beforehand on each port then this is not an issue. Haiti is Labadee - their own private beach - you do not get off the beach. All others are easy to do by yourself.

I agree with Aldrich from Newbury, do your research before hand,everything is easy to do by yourself, however we did everything with RCCL. We booked on line before hand and everything was so well organised we did not have to waste time looking about, deciding what to do etc. At the end of the day it may have been slightly more expensive, not much I have to say, but hey your on a cruise, go and enjoy. The beach buggy drive in Cozumel was real fun and the stingrays in Grand Caymen are not to missed and if you really want a thrill try the zip ride in Labade.

Where this ship is innovative and different is with the rather exciting launch of the Worlds first Go Karting track at Sea.This is no ordinary go Karting track your little ones and adults alike will be a...

Silversea was not meant to be!

By Barbara Hopley

Barbara Hopley's blog

On Monday 22 May I was booked to go on a ship visit of the ‘Silver Whisper’ by Silversea Cruises. We get invited to see ships all the time but do them on our days off as too busy to take time out of a working week. That’s how dedicated I am to see as many ships as possible as so much easier to sell when you have seen them.I had been looking forward to seeing this ship as have never seen a Silversea ship, it had been booked for a few weeks and I made my arrangements at home ...
