Aldrich - Answered a Question by Kingsford (16 Aug 08 19:27)

Personally I never book ships shore ex, especially in places like the Caribbean where it is so easy to DIY. Do enough research and you will know where you want to go. Join with your fellow cruisers to make up a group and organise a private tour. Cheaper and far more personal. Google is a great place to start. Try 'cruise caribbean ports of call'.

Yes, I agree with Aldrich (why do persist in using surnames only for its contributors - very impersonal!?). Unless you want something very special, like a helicopter trip, then do your own thing. There are shared taxi vehicles everywhere and the consolidator will form a group for you even if you do not have your own friends. Very much cheaper and more flexible.

It sounds like Celebrity cruises have a few things going wrong on their Infinity ship based in South America this winter.Most reviews we receive reagrding Celebrity cruises are excellent and reflect the 5* staus in the cruising market. Guest to staff ratio means you have much more space to enjoy the facilities on-board.I recently had a customer return from this cruise in January and although she had a great time, there were so many problems encountered due to one of the ships propellersIf the...
