Just left golden princess - nice cruise - good food - entertainment mostly garbage - same shows, artists, as last year and repeated week after week. The one shining light was the excellent night live rock and raggae show at the pool -brilliant live bands. huge crowds.
We had a great swim with the dolphins in Antigua - well worth the cost
Great catamoran + snorkel trip in St Lucia - 25$ morning tour - really good value. The rest of the tours were acoording to a number of passengers a rip off. You pay 70-80 $ US for visits by coach -usually 2 hrs each way - you can do this privately for a mach better deal and see loads more.
I want to make a very strong recommendation for our marvellous taxi driver CYRIL HILTON. - He made our holiday. He does private tours at very reasonable rates. He gave us a marvellous tour of the island - both on and off the beaten track - brilliant - did you know the banana plant bears on bunch of fruit and the dies!! - we do now + much more thanks to the excellent Cyril who is a mine of really interesting information -nice clean car - very nice man. Book him in advance of your visit and he will be there
You can contact him on e- mail firstname.lastname@example.org Great guy.
Your are correct regarding entertainment - Seems Princes runs shows for 4/5 years and most of the singing is dubbed....... Thanks for your info regarding the Taxi driver have logged in favorites....
Next time on an Island try their bus services, you can have a tour for a few dollars and meet the people.
