Unfortunately, the caribbean is a blend of good and bad when it comes to some of the ports and I would recommend for the most part that you try and team up with other passengers if venturing out independently. Road Town in Tortola is pretty safe and the tour along the ridge of the island to Pussers Landing is very scenic. Cane Garden bay,on the other side of the hill is another favourite and if you want to laze on a beach then this is the place to go. Willemstad is good for shopping and if you are interested in its Dutch heritage you will find tours to expand on this.

Hello, I went on my first big ship cruise to the Caribbean on Princess line last year - I like you did not fancy going solo ashore so stayed with the organised tours from the ship; when the sightseeing was over the tour usually ended in a safe shopping area - also by using the organised trips the guides gave a lot of information. Have a good look at the trips on the tour personaliser section and make your choices; I really enjoyed the Caribbean and plan on going back ther next year. Enjoy!

My littl...

Wow wow wow what an amazing experience. Thank you so much Cruise.Co.UK for allowing me to visit this most magical and diverse City. I can only describe it as a sophisticated fusion of the East and West. Where old meets new on every street.Arriving into the new sleek airport with so much space and glass, the feel of the outside is everywhere. This is a new airport built on Lantau Island approx 40 minutes from the city depending on traffic, (never seen so much) with fantastic road and rail link...

By Zara Kelly

These days you cannot fail to notice that ‘Black Friday’ is now a very big thing in the UK! When I think of ‘Black Friday’, I conjure up images of a chilly winters day in New York and seeing people dressed up warm, shopping in Macy’sWell, we now do Halloween on a grander scale than ever before, so why not it makes money! Yet we talk about sovereignty a lot in this country these days and surely, we should be pushing our own traditions? Could we have a sale every ...
