'We are in our fifties'!!!! Come on,there's life in the old dogs yet!! We haven't been with OV but did the Caribbean last year with P&O, Med the year before with same. Both fantastic! It can be tiring especially in the Med when there is a new port every day but journey to and from the Caribbean across the Atlantic was very relaxing. On the islands, go into the towns and 'barter' with the taxi-drivers for a tour around the area - specify how long you would like. Make sure a price is fixed before you get in and ensure 'aircon' does not mean the taxi has opening windows!! You will need it!! If you are going to Dominica then go up into the rainforest - fantastic. Antigua - got to Royal Antigua beach hotel, onto the beach (public) and thats what it's all about! Too much too list - but DONT sit on the ship!!

Firstly do not sit on borad for the whole trip. When your action ashore booklet arrives you will be able to do research via the net to see if you can do any of the activities for a fraction of the cost. Also you can check with the tourist boards which are usually close to the port for any local points of interest. If nothing else the Caribbean has some great beaches. Have a fantastic time!

We went on OV1 in Jan/Feb this year to the caribbean and loved it. The best holiday we have ever had. In fact, we have booked the same trip in Jan 2008 but this time on OV2. Dont miss the turtle encounter in Barbados. This was one of the best priced trips and is fantastic. We have already booked it again! We also loved the quad biking in st. lucia, and if t=you are thinking you are too old, you're wrong. On our trip people on quads were aged from 18 to over 60 and we all loved it. They take you on a nice tour of the island then about 90 minutes on the quads in private estates. It certainly gives you a view of the little villages etc. Also, when in St. Martin, dont bother with the tours. We walked around the whole island for hours. Its very flat, beautiful and we really enjoyed it. Crai.
