Hi, welcome to the forum and world of cruising. We tried it 4 years ago and don't want to do anything else. My tip would be do plenty of research on the ports you are visiting, use whatsinport or shore bee and others. TripAdvisor also great for reviews on independantvtrips. I do think P&O excursions are quite well priced though. We booked local companies for Rome and Madeira and that worked well for us. Where are you going?

I did that in January with my daughter. The stingray trip to Gibbs Cay with P& O is fab and does get sold out. We also did the swimming with turtles trip in Barbados, only saw 2 turtles but was amazing and lunch on the boat was lovely. Most places when you get off taxis are waiting to take you on island tours or to the beach. You want about 20/25 dollars each port plus a sun lounger and brolly each on the beach is around 10/15 dollars. In Grenada we picked up a tour for $15 to a waterfall, spice shop and rum shack which we really enjoyed, though the spiced rum was knockout stuff!! You will be fine with just US dollars. Hope this helps

Nice start to the world of cruising.

As a party of 6 you can book trips with local taxi companies ,and save a fortune against P&O tours. Agree the price first and pay at the end.

If you can go up Shirley Heights and look at the view of Nelsons dock yard.

Nice Ship IMO and if you fancy a different meal other than the MDR they will have offers on ?Take a good suncream and decent SunGlasses ....Davybe
