Dream Cruising with Andrew Grey #dreamer

September 25, 2015

When Dominic and I take a cruise, Dominic plans a lot of our activities. Most ships allow passengers to reserve places at the shows, so he builds a cruise calendar so we can take in the ice show, stage shows, nightly entertainment, cabaret acts, and so on. There are times when I’m surprised I’ll have time to sit by the pool for an hour. :)

I would like to share a piece of advice. When cruising, plan your excursions in port ahead of time. The ships have lists of excursions you can book and take and if time or dodgy transportation is an issue, definitely book through the ship. However, be sure to review listings on the various boards such as Cruise Critic. There is a wealth of information about private excursions that you can book. They are often less money and can be of superior quality. When we were in St. Kitts we booked an island tour that took us from the 16th century fort to the portions of the island where waves burst over crags, with a small group of donkeys what we got to feed sugar cane. On Antiqua he found a wonderful kayaking expedition that allowed us to scope out tide pools and mangroves. I also became friends with a parrot named Sweet Pea.

I’m happy to say that Dominic is amazing at ferreting out fun things for us to do on almost every island we visit. Some are in the water, some on it, and some simply seeing the sights. With a little research, you can make every island you visit, a place filled with memories.
