My recommendation is not to use the OV trips anywhere as they are always well overpriced just like all the cruise ships. If you go onto the Colon forum and/or the internet, you'll find lots of information on private tour operators. We are doing the same cruise on 1 January and will be making our own arrangements. We did the eastern Caribbean with OV a couple of years ago and whilst we had one of the best holidays we've ever had (and didn't think we were folk who liked cruises before we went!), we also learned heaps and you will find that even if you don't arrange private tours before you leave, there will be heaps of taxis and tour operators awaiting the arrival of the ship. The more passengers who get together and then barter the prices for your own itinerary if you don't want what they are offering, the cheaper it will be; nothing is set in concrete!

Enjoy - I know we will!

Thanks Eileen, this will be our 5th, cruise with O.V.

[2x caribean,1xmed, 1xgreek islands] so we know about going it alone --- not for me ,just wouldnt enjoy the trips! we have always been more than satisfied with O.V. trips.know they are expensive but worth it in our opinion for peace of mind.

would love to hear how you get on we are wading thro the info on the net to find out about the ports of call---any info gratefully received. xxx
