What's really included in your cruise fare? What cabins are the best—and the worst? What cruise line has the largest standard cabins, even at the lowest price levels? Which cruise line's ships have rock-climbing walls?—Fodor's The Complete Guide to Caribbean Cruises, 2nd Edition answers all these questions and many more! Linda Coffman, our resident Cruise Diva, has been dishing out cruise-travel advice for more than a decade and has the answers to all your cruise questions. An avid cruiser, she spends most of her time cruising in the Caribbean and knows all the inside info on all the ships and even the best things to do while ashore!
