Well I'm going on the same cruise!! I've been to the Caribbean but of the islands listed have only been to Antigua, Tortola and St Kitts. It is relativelty easy to make your own way around and according to the brochure, Fred Olsen also help you with port info and a shuttle bus where the town or beach is more than a 15 minute walk. It is normally very easy to pick up a taxi at the ports, especially if you befriend another couple to share the coats. Taxis wait on the quayside. For Tortola, Cane Garden Bay is a must if you like beaches, with some magnificent views on the journey. Just ma ke quite sure you get back to the boat well before the departure time. I'm sure you won't be disappointed with this itinery.

I have to agree with Taylor you will truely have a wonderful time I have travelled to the Caribbean many times and more often than not the local people are more than happy to help you. However ensure to keep an eye on the time and familiarise yourself with the times that the ship will be leaving port. www.Caribbean.com is a great site for looking up activities for your trip just choose from the islands list on the left the when it has loaded scroll towards the bottom of the page and it has a list stating things like duty free & Activities and Attractions, pick the one your interested in and it will show you people and place you can book with. Hope this helps Kind Regards Hawke.

St. John's Antigua....... get the tour that does Shirley Heights, Nelson's Dockyard & English Harbour. The wild side is great at Devil's Bridge. The island boasts 365 beaches, but a lovely pink sand one is on the way from the 'edge 0f the rainforest' tour - Darkwood. I seem to remember bieng told that all beaches are public, including the resort hotels.

I did it!!!

By Lisa West

Last weekend I completed in the London Moonwalk – what an amazing but very emotional experience. Our group The Girls from the Ditch meet at 5pm where we had arranged for a mini bus to take us all down to London. We had to be in Clapham Common for 9pm so we had plenty of time to get down there. The day didnt quite go to plan for my sister who was joining me on the walk, her Grandson decided to come 2 weeks early and arrived at 2.30 in the afternoon, so after being up since 4.30 Sa...

NCL All Inclusive Drinks&Tips ...

By Gina Rowan

Gina Rowan's blog

 Recently NCL announced that their Ultimate Drinks Package & prepaid gratuities were now mandatory in all of their sailings. At first glance this would seem to be a good idea. After all, I can’t tell you how many enquiries I get on a daily basis, asking if a drinks package is included. Rightly so, as your bar bill is usually the most expensive item on your cruise bill!So there has been a definite trend towards passengers preferring a total cruise fare with an all inclusive d...

Fancy a Movie Night in or Away?

By Haydn Jones

Haydn Jones's blog

There is nothing my family love more than cuddling up of a Sunday night , curtains closed, eating microwave popcorn and watching a movie. Its become a Sunday night tradition in our house. Although there is something my two boys love slightly more – movies under the stars on a cruise. We often end up missing the shows and evening entertainment, because for them this is the perfect treat. Sun loungers, blankets, hot chocolate and even pop corn and pizza bought to you whilst watching a fil...
