Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I bought this book to research an upcoming cruise to ports we have not visited in the past. I wish I had this book for our previous cruises.
I bought this book for research for my next cruise - to the Bahamas - and for reference for future cruises. Definitely has great info. Main thing it had that I couldn't find anywhere else: maps of the port cities w/ the location of the cruise ports. Thing I wish it had: more info on the transportation from the port to destinations. (Has basic info, but not enough specifics on how to get to each thing.) Overall, the book covered what I was looking for!
