Synopsis:

Caribbean Ports of Call shows you how to plan a carefree vacation at sea and in port, including valuable information on shore excursions. There are detailed profiles of the major cruselines and their ships, as well as practical advice on selecting and reserving the ideal cruise vacation.  

Synopsis:

A top expert helps you find the line, the ship, and the excursions for your tastes and your pocketbook.
 
It is a world both foreign and familiar—an exotic world of vivid color and gentle trade winds. Paradise, the Caribbean is often called, and you will see why as your ship glides gently through aquamarine and sapphire waters to reach places thick with tropical greenery down to their white-sand shorelines.
 
With this guide, cruise expert Kay Showker brings together in one volume all the information you need to plan a carefree vacation at sea and in port. She covers ports of call and shore excursions throughout the Caribbean and beyond—setting out from the Bahamas, as well as the Turks and Caicos, to Key West and the Northern Caribbean and on south through the Eastern and Southern Caribbean to Aruba; and those ports and excursions west from Jamaica to the Mexican Caribbean, Central America, and the Panama Canal. Created for all budgets and tastes, Caribbean Ports of Call also includes detailed profiles of the major cruise lines and their ships, as well as practical advice on selecting and reserving the ideal cruise vacation.
