Yes - cruised with RCl and usually the stateroom attendant leaves a newsletter every night in your cabin with tomorrows port and there is a small map of the town etc.

Yes, you will get map - usually clearly indicating what shops they suggest you patronise!

To avoid the 'shopping map' there is usually a tourist info stall set up near the bottom of the gangway or a stand inside the terminal building you walk through with freebie local tourist maps. These are always a better option.

If you want to study what is outside of the town area then just print a map off the net. The ships will give you the main town map but not much usually outside of that. You will also get Port Lectures which do cover the main sites in the town but they also cover shops which RCI would like you to visit. You will also get a large amount of other information by googling "name of destination" tourist. There are many web sites which do good service this way but I like "Virtual Tourist" for honest imformation and if you couple that with cc boards you will be far wiser. .... Neil.

They received an early booking discount from Royal Caribbean (plus free parking from ourselves) and were outraged when RCI decided to announce they were now including a deluxe drinks package PLUS the second passenger goes half price. When we added the cost of the drinks package on to the price they paid for their original cruise th...

Toddlers and pools on board

By Kerry James

Kerry James's blog

Choosing the right ship for any age is important, but even more so when picking one that is suitable for children, toddlers and babies. Older children may want the kids clubs, some are just happy with the pool, or some might want more adventurous activities like rock climbing, ice skating etc. But what about toddlers/infants?Some parents with children under 3 might not want to leave their children in the kids club all day, and actually just be happy with a pool that the child can use –...
