I don't know your cabin or the islands that you are visiting but.......it is generally very easy to find beaches to visit and always a taxi around to get you to them. If you want to do some work then I suggest that you look at your islands on the net and see what comes up under the islands name followed by “tourism” and also visit "The other Cruise Site" and see what other cruise passengers have to say. Now I'm going to be critical, if you expect others to do all your work for you, you will never get the full benefit of your cruise experience. My example is that you expect us to look up where your cruise's itinerary and then tell you what you want to know. You will get far more by working a little more and then asking more specific questions. Although it seems that I am only getting at you it is really aimed at so many people who have the knowledge to do more but take the easy way out and cut corners expecting others to do all the donkey work. It is not hard, you just have to write a little more or look up an extra bit. Now you can have a go at me if you like. .... Neil .

Hi There, Cruised with OV2 around Caribbean last Xmas, did all our own tours. As soon as you exit ship there are loads of willing local taxi drivers waiting to whisk you off to various beaches and tourist sites reccomended. Agree a price, arrange a pick up time and pay when they pick you up. We did this on every Island and without fail they were waiting at the alloted time ready to bring you back to the ship. Cost A few $$ per person.

 Time really does go fast. It wasn’t that long ago I was counting down the days until our family cruise, and now it has been and gone. You have probably seen lost of posts on the newly refurbished Independence and here is my take on it.We went on the 5 night sailing over to Cherbourg and Cobh in May half term. On the day we sailed away it was in the late 20’s which unfortunately didn’t last, but we were lucky it stayed dry. Like previous years we have got up early and t...
