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'.

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.

I started the month with 4 nights away with a friend at her apartment in Fuerteventura. We flew out on 28th June and returned on 2nd July and had a lovely time chilling and relaxing although it was very very hot.T...
