On Punta de Mangle. The port is confusingly called El Puerto El Guamache - confusing cos Gaumache is also a town on neighbouring little island of Coche, so if you check with Google Maps, type in the full name, not just Guamache. For more info click back to the Answers page, & in the blue box type Margarita into the "keywords". Have a good one, Chris.

Hi there - we visited isla margarita last year on p&o oceana, we docked at el guamache and had a fantastic day there, the beach and bathing is really nice, have a look on google earth and you can actually see were you will probably be docking.

Thanks everyone for your help. We went to Margarita about 5 years ago and wondered if it would be a different place to last time. We should have been going to Curacas, but Princess have just changed it to Isla Margarita. It is the second time this has happened to us.

Intriguing. Apparently Ocean Village have also switched away from Caracas. Margarita is on their schedule anyway, apparently they've switched from Caracas to Martinique. Maybe people-power - there have been complaints about unsuitability of La Guaira/Caracas. Maybe grief with their fuel suppliers -Venezuela is regarded as cheapest for refuelling, but of course Isla Margarita is also Venezuela. Maybe its some other reason to do with costs. Shame if you've already been to I/Margarita, but I suspect most would prefer it to Caracas. Chris.

Still my favourite cruise to date.I am booke...

After an amazing trip to Lapland and a fantastic Christmas with the family our festivities were cut short as I was taken into hospital just after Christmas.

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...
