Information about ports and reviews for different excursions.

When it was my first cruise I think what took the longest time to get my head around was what a day on a ship was like because so much happens

That would have to be past price history for airfare and cruises, so you know statistically when might be the best time to book for a specific cruise.

Ok maybe this isn't exactly an article but I would love to see something about each port. So that it is one stop shopping for a good starting place about a port. I would love for it to be well organized so its easy to find the info about the specific port of call you are looking for. Also would love for it to be updated regularly. In the article for each port I would love too see

1.) best sites to visit for site seeing
2.) best places to eat
3.) little known but amazing places that are a must visit
4.) what the people/environment is like (safe, friendly, etc)
5.) information about different water and non-water activities to do
6.) relevant pictures of the port

Truthfully some of this info is buried in the forums. Its hard to search through so many posts and find what you need. With so many replies on some threads sorting though it all takes A LOT of time and the information gets buried.
