Princess and P & O are probably best. They sail in the Caribbean October to March/April every year. They also offer 14 night cruises, which I find best as 7/10 night cruises (many other cruise lines) are not long enough when you've been on a plane for 8-10 hours! Sea Princess does a 14 night round trip Caribbean cruise from October/November to April every year. You can embark at either Montego Bay or Barabdos for a 14-night cruise, embarkation being on Saturdays. For example; we sailed from Montego Bay on 22nd March 2008. There were passengers already on board who had embarked at Barbados the previous Saturday. 7 days later, half way into our cruise, we pulled into Barbados where some passengers ended their 14-night cruise and new passengers beginning their holiday got on! 7 days later we were back in Montego Bay where we (sadly!) ended our cruise. Sea Princess caters mainly for British passengers (9/10 were British when we were on). It's enjoyed by all ages but mainly the 35+. (We were young 'uns at only 29 and 31). We sail during the Easter break (I'm a Primary School teacher) and found that the children who were on board were very polite and extremely well behaved. If you want an adults only go with P & O, I think the Artemis is adults only, I may e wrong! Hope this helps! (We're off again on Sea Princess during Easter 2010!).

It's difficult to understand 'best'. Do you mean the most expensive, cheapest, liveliest, quietest, oldest, newest, kids/no kids? Many will respond with what is best for them, but will it be best for you? There are many cruise lines in the Caribbean, all offering different experiences, & if you can expand your question, you will get a far better & guided response......Regards Wilba.

We have just been on a Cruise to the Caribbean flying from UK to Barbados and return. We sailed on Ventura P&O's new ship and had a fantastic time, The ship is huge and beautiful with plenty to do on it. The ship berthed at 10 different Islands sailing through the night 4 days were sea days. Although it is a family ship there were only about 70 kids on the ship and we seldon if ever saw them. As long as you dont go on School Holidays there wont be a lot of children. The food was lovely and staff were excellent. We had a balcony cabin which I would recommend having breakfast delivered to cabin and enjoying it on the balcony or having a drink on balcony with the stars above and moon shining down on the water was absolutely great. Ventura to start with had quite a few negative reviews but it seems to have sorted them out and we found nothing to complain about apart from sunloungers at pools being too close together.

Anne Eaves's blog

My husband and i have recently returned from a cruise on Symphony of the Seas to celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary and without a doubt it was one of the best cruises we have done. We arrived in Barcelona on 27th April and had one night at the Onix Liceo Hotel which is centrally located about half way down Las Ramblas on a side street, and is a great location for a pre cruise stay if you are looking for something central.We took a taxi to the port the following morning where the check i...
