Royal Caribbean owns a private port at Labadie, Haiti. Do they allow tourists to exit the port and go into the real Haiti? Nearby are ruins of Sans Soucis Palace and the Citadel at Laferriere. I'm more interested in legitimate historical and cultural sites, then a company owned amusement park.
We are considering a river cruise in the Bordeaux region of France. We've never been to that corner of the world. However, my concern is a possible over focus on wine. I enjoy a glass occasionally, but we are not wine freaks. I don't want a cruise that focuses on wine tastings at every stop. Would I be better looking at a different European River? [We have previously done Danube twice and the Rhine] Or are there plenty of castles, and history and cobblestone street villages to keep me happy? Will I have to listen to other people non-stop gibbering about their last wine tasting all week long?
Holland America has an interesting 22day South Am cruise from Santiago to BA. They spend about 4 days on what they call Antarctic Experience. It appears that these are scenic sea days only. IDK. Can you get off thee ship? Do they have zodiac trips to get closer? From a big ship, penguins and such will be a speck on the horizon , wont they?
