As you get off the ship, there is a "mall" where you can buy some of the things you mentioned. You'll be docked right in Fort de France; the La Samane Park, which you can see from the ship, has "vendors" where we found everything we wanted to buy. But . . . I think it would be a shame to go to Martinique and not see anything. I'd like to recommend a wonderful, knowledgeable tour guide, Kleber, who is a charming and sophisticated gentleman with an immaculate Mercedes. He took us around to see the Balata Cathedral [replica of Montmartre], a rum factory that was gorgeous, the ruins of St. Pierre, the Gauguin Museum, and then drove along the beach back to Fort de France. I don't know how much you can reasonably do in the time you have, but if you email him and tell him your time frame, he will be able to help you. He can also tell you where to buy the souvenirs you wish. His email address is kleber-gontran.magdeleine@wanadoo.fr - he will be able to hel.

By Lily Canderton

The Truth is Venetians do not want to live in Venice any longer as their population dwindles with tourists often outnumbering residents, partly as a result of cruise ship visitors as the mega-cruise ships’ tens of thousands of passengers spilling into its narrow streets and canals, this mass tourism is causing irreversible damage on the fragile lagoon ecosystem and is endangering the environment of the city and its lagoon.Cruising into Venice Italy is one of those magical travel moments...

Yes, Cruises Really Do Sell Out!!.

By Alison Ranaldi

Alison Ranaldi's blog

This morning a two night cruise on Celebrity Silhouette went on sale for 28th April next year.This will be the first time Silhouette has sailed from Southampton so a great opportunity to see the ship without the hassle of flying. At a lead-in fare from just 299pp including all drinks, food, entertainment and gratuities, it was a bargain.Silhouette takes nearly three thousand passengers and as I write this, there are only a handful of cabins remaining which we expect to see go in the next hour...
