Sorry but your request is far too broad, there are some great things to see and do in the Caribbean and to mention them all would be to write a book. First decide where you would like to go, then add your likes and dislikes and then someone will, I'm sure, suggest the trips either the ship's own or diy.....Ida Dow.

If you go to Belize we heard the city trip wasn't everyone's cup of tea but we did a trip to have a "dolphin experience" It was great - standing chest deep in the sea with the dolphins swimming right up to us to stroke them. It was money well spent.

If you are going to Jamaica you must go to Dunns River falls and walk up the falls we had a brilliant time and we have a dvd of us walking up it. Also if you go to Grand Caymen go on a snorkling trip with the sting rays this was fantastic you get to feed them, make sure you wear plenty of suncream waterproof preferably.

First of all, you will love it! My main tip would be NOT to book any of the excursions offered by the cruise line. They are very expensive. Just walk down the gang plank and hire a local taxi. They will take you anywhere you want to go at a very reasonable price, and they will wait any length of time YOU decide. So you are not being dictated to by all the other people, as you would be on a cruise excursion.

If you go to Jamaica, Oche Rios, and you are reasonably fit and active - then you should do the Dunnes River Falls- it is brilliant!

We went on a Caribbean cruise in June on Golden Princess. Our favourites were Aruba, Bonaire, St Lucia and St Thomas. You will find numerous offer s of trips when you arrive at the different islands. Speaking to other passengers it seems to be cheaper to do you own trips rather than book on the ship. If you find out a little about the islands before you go you will be able to customise the trip to your preference. In St Lucia we had a complete tour part boat part mini coach, including time on the beach and snorkelling (including equipment) if you fancy.

Haydn Jones's blog

Although my first great love is Cruising………..my second is football, my beloved Cardiff City to be precise! I’m thinking maybe I should have put my wife and children in here somewhere but they will understand! As a season ticket holder i’ve been a little distracted over the last few weeks as we have been fighting for the second automatic promotion spot to the Premier League! It’s been a close fought battle with Fulham and it went down to the very last game...

How Fred Olsen compares

By Charlene Thackeray

Charlene Thackeray's blog

We are recently back from our first Fred Olsen cruise.Whilst this is the smallest ship we have been on as a family there were lots of great things and a few not so great things for us. We knew there would not be much for Charlie on board however he had a great time with all his new friends from the Entertainments team. I can honestly say the entertainment team were really friendly and put on some great shows. I loved how the stage rose in the Neptune lounge making it a great area for lots of ...
