I have just come back from this lovely trip. Be prepared for rain and heat. You can pay for the premium upgrade seats but you cannot book an exact seat. It depends who you fly with as to the cost and what you get for your money. I booked Thomas Cook and all you got was a bit o extra roomand free drinks during flight. My advice is get to the airport very very early 4 - 5 hours in advance and be first in the queue for economy seats and then ask for an exit seat as these do not cost any extra money. Legroom on Thomas Cook flights are not brilliant though. You book the premimum through your travel agent that you booked with, ours cost about £175 each return.

I think that you have to contact the airline regarding premium seats but not too sure as ive never booked them.

You can book a premium grade seat, but cannot choose your actual seat number. You book your seat upgrade via Ocean Village, not via the airline (unless it has changed since last year).

Hurricane Irma has certainly made her presence felt in the Caribbean. Florida was relatively lucky compared to the devastation that happened on some of the islands such as Barbuda, St Thomas, Anguilla and St Maarten. Most of these destinations rely on tourism as a source of income for their people and with the amount of damage to infrastructure and hotels this is going to affect their economies severely.In these times of adversity you can see how people rally round and work together to try an...
