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.

By Amy Ginder

Amy Ginder's blog

This time of year we have a lot of calls asking for late availability for the school holidays. I hate to be the bearer of bad news but it is very late in the day. Most cruise lines have filled all of their 3 and 4 berth cabins and those that have space will charge you astronomical prices.So what do you do if you are looking to cruise in the school holidays? The answer is book early! Book now for 2018, if you leave it to nearer the time not only will the prices climb but you are unlikely to ge...
