Curacao
Port Rating: 4.0 out of 5+
WE did our own thing and went wondering into Willemstad for 1/2 day

Went to great Museum about slavery.

Intended to go to beach but ran out of time

Again did our own tour booked on web. Used Trip Advisor to find Bonaire Island Tours with guide Barbel. Full island tour which was very interesting.

You can aslo pick her Tour up by just finding her just outside pier gates with the other stalls.

Ocho Rios

Booked independently principally based on price again throu Trip Advisor contact - Pete Taylor Tours. Really a glorified taxi service but who knows contacts.

Did Dunns River Falls...excellent although my wife didn't fancy it when we arrived but through herself into it..literally. Don't get involved in demands for heavy tipping or DVD, not worth it.

Then onto White River Rafting...again excellent 45 mins trip down a raging river due to heavy rains before we arrived

Good 1/2 day trip then back to ship for sunbathing pm

Grand Turk

Would give '0' as we didn't dock.

Captain Charlie Carr had 3 goes to dock but failed and claimed winds to high to tender. Big disappointment and ended up with another sea day and a battle for sunbed. Not good

Great port.

Phiilpsberg good but small but good beach in the town

We went to French side by taxi to Marigot for a wonder round and to the Fort.... OK

Highlight though was the 3+ hrs spent at Maho Beach and the Sunset Beach Bar watching planes land and enjoying the location....brilliant, food good as well.

Returned to Phillipsberg to haggle over diamond ring which I reckon I could have screwed further discount on

Fantastic day overall....would go back

Another private tour - Cosol Tours

All I can say is fantastic and if you go to this island book this tour

It was a riot...perhaps this had something to do with the 5 or so drink stops.

Good mix of sights including speed boat ride to a local bay near Twin Pitons for 2hrs then the drive in volcano etc

Great day

Our plan was to directly to St Lawrence Gap and Dover Beach

Excellent and what the caribbean is all about, fun in the sun, cheap food and drink.

Then spent time shopping in Bridgetown which ws quite good

Would go back to Barbados for 2 week beach holiday
