5.0 out of 5 stars Great overview for cruisers March 22, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
We cruise the Caribbean almost every year and I buy the most current version of this book each time because it covers every port from the cruise perspective - where the ship docks, how much it costs to get to town, the main attractions and "must sees" for each port, plus information on banks, restaurants, internet cafes, etc.

2.0 out of 5 stars Foder's falls short March 4, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I've used this in previous years to plan my cruise excursions. I found that for many of the ports of call there were only one or two recommended activities, and no reviews on things like zip-line tours, and other excursions offered by most cruise lines.

I purchased this to plan which excursions would work for me as someone with a disability, and found that Foder's has edited out that part of the book.

It was a big disappointment, the previous (I think 2007) book was much more thorough and had better photos.

3.0 out of 5 stars Missing map of whole Caribbean February 16, 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
One major fault of the book is that there is no map of the whole Caribbean area to put each island in perspective.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not worth buying, very scant details about some ports February 12, 2015
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this book to accompany a cruise from San Juan to a number of Eastern Caribbean islands. Unfortunately the section on San Juan is so brief as to be useless. It gives the location of the port and three hotels, all over $250 per night. Nothing on sights, tours, shopping, eating. The book should give full details for each port or not bother. Of course, the section also gives the web address where I am invited to buy *another* book just about San Juan! It seems to be this way for most of the ports in the "Embarkation Ports" section, and many of the ports of call are similarly less than a page long.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very helpful book. January 10, 2015
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
We used the crap out of this book for our cruise. It had all the info we needed and it made our st. Lucia day awesome with the beach suggestion. Friars Bay is beautiful! A few of the excursions and places to visit have raised their prices, but thats just how the world works.
