  • More annually updated guides than any other series

The ship is only half of the cruise experience--the other half is the time you spend ashore. Frommer's Caribbean Ports of Call offers the most complete guide to all the ports, with a critical, insider's look at all the organized shore excursions offered by the cruise lines themselves, Since it usually makes more sense to explore on your own, we'll take you to all the best beaches, golf, water sports, shopping, dining, and casinos--the attractions and activities that can easily fit into your limited time, starting from the cruise docks. You may only have a few hours, but we'll make sure you know exactly how to hit the highlights on your own. You'll also get a complete rundown of all the major ports of embarkation and maps of each destination.

Meet the Author

Tamar Schreibman has traveled to Sedona, Las Vegas, Longboat Key, Scottsdale, the Arizona wine country, Charleston, Montego Bay, and Budapest to research travel stories for Time Out New York, Modern Bride, Elle, New Woman, and Mode. Her other articles have appeared in various publications including Self, Fitness, Marie Claire, Seventeen, Men’s Fitness, Cosmopolitan, Working Mother, New York Daily News, Star, and Working Woman. This is her third nonfiction book. She also writes fiction.

Christina Colón has two great passions in life: nature and travel. She has been everywhere from Borneo (where she lived for 2 years tracking wild animals) to Belize (where she did her master’s thesis in a jaguar preserve). With a Ph.D. in ecology, a master’s in environmental education, and adjunct positions at several universities, she is a scientist and an educator, as well as an author. When she is not exploring a tropical rainforest or an exotic island, she can be found in the Bronx, where she loves to seek the wilder side of the borough. In addition to scientific and academic texts, she has contributed to numerous travel guides, including Frommer’s Portable Aruba and The New York Times Guide to New York City.

This book is void of the information found in other Frommer books because Frommer apparently doesn't want to step on the toes of the cruise industry. For instance, there are no recommended web sites. It would be very nice to have information so that there would be some other vendors to use on shore excursions, for instance. Lots of information not available though it should be.
