Don't understand this

Here's why I don't understand why people say they save so much money by taking an inside or OV cabin. This is from my travel agent and I grant it is a little hard to follow as it did not copy the...

a vote for ship excursions

Some of these islands, like Jamaica, are beautiful, but I agree I don't usually feel safe as well as feeling harassed. But it is a good reason to take ship's tours to get to the nice and interesting...
