Don't book any excursions, just go ashore and speak to a taxi driver. They will tailor what you want for a fraction of the price. They all speak English and can't do enough for you.

When I did OV Caribbean in March, we were advised to go the desk inside the port area where you can book trips there and then for a fraction of OV price. We did this in St Lucia and had a stunning day out via boat and mini bus - very cheaply. Also when you walk out of the port gate licensed taxi drivers are there waiting for you. Just ask them the best trip they offer and a price. If you have some idea of where you wish to go they will take you - stop any time for you to take pictures - a drink - they are really lovely people you feel your trip was money well spent. Most of the ports in the Caribbean are purpose built- shops, shore booking desk, cafe - music - and so relaxed. The Caribbean is no doubt the best cruise I have ever taken as I have now done most of the Med ports and nothing compares to the Caribbean.

What No Kisses On My Pillow?!!

By Lily Canderton

Lily Canderton's blog

10 years ago a tradition of the nightly turn down service on ships was a Chocolate Kiss on your pillow but this now seems to be a thing of the past according to a recently returned cruise passengerI hear all the time from passengers that ‘standards are not what they used to be’ with less and less being included and more and more being an added payable extra – Are cruise lines cutting corners just too much?Even the Berlitz Guide author commented that standards are slipping in...
