Neil and Ida Down - Answered a Question by willetts (10 Aug 08 21:05)

I wasn't going to answer this but having seen that you are not first time cruisers I am wondering how you can go on a cruise and not know at which ports you will be docking. "Is it worth getting off ship to explore" is an unusual question for experienced people. Do you seriously think that we are going to look up the ports of call made by OV so that we can answer your questions? Part of the fun of a cruise is the preparation and I suggest that you start enjoying your cruise. .... Neil.

So only the people who have been on this cruise would know about the ports. Are these special ports that only OV go to? Have we all been missing out? If you state the ports your going to, you will get a lot of very good advise from people who could probably recite local bus timetables off the top of their head. One final point, excursions on OV are not unique to that company, the same excursion will be available every cruise ship that docks in that port, so many people, off many cruise lines could give out advise on those trips.

No, I read the question the way it was written. Terribly sorry, abject apologies and I promise to read any question correctly in the future. Humbly yours, Neil.
