Synopsis

You'll never fall into the tourist traps when you travel with "Frommer's". It's like having a friend show you around, taking you to the places locals like best. Our expert authors have already gone everywhere you might go - they've done the legwork for you, and they're not afraid to tell it like it is, saving you time and money. No other series offers candid reviews of so many restaurants in all price ranges. Every "Frommer's Travel Guide" is up-to-date, with exact prices for everything, dozens of color maps, and exciting coverage of sports, shopping. You'd be lost without us!The ship is only half of the cruise experience - the other half is the time you spend ashore. "Frommer's Caribbean Ports of Call" offers the most complete guide to all the ports, with a critical, insider's look at all the organized shore excursions offered by the cruise lines themselves. Since it usually makes more sense to explore on your own, we'll take you to all the best beaches, golf, water sports, shopping, dining, and casinos - the attractions and activities that can easily fit into your limited time, starting from the cruise docks.

You may only have a few hours, but we'll make sure you know exactly how to hit the highlights on your own. You'll also get a complete rundown of all the major ports of embarkation and maps of each destination. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Taschenbuch.

Frommer's is the king, but the this is a retread. 17. Dezember 2007
Von Salvatore Dragone - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
While Frommer's is the king of travel advce and I have sworn by thier advice and knowledge while traveling, this particular eddition is no better than 2005 or 2006. It is a re-tread. So if you have a version from 2006 or 2005, stay with it. There is really no new information worth spending the money on. While I do not realy fault Frommer's for using old information, since not much changes in the caribbean, it should be more clearly noted that there is not much new in thier book.

Great book to throw in your backpack and take with you on the cruise. You can bone up on a bit of the history and it will get some ideas ffor excursions or places to visit on the islands.

Frommer's Caribbean Ports of Call 9. August 2009
Von Alamo Jim - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
A useful book for planning visits to Caribbean islands. I am using this with the descriptions of my cruise ship's shore excursions: Do I want the shorex, or do I do the sightseeing on my own? The book also gives opinions on what is worthwhile to see and what isn't...which you don't get from the cruise line (everything is worth seeing). The recommendations on what to buy or not buy at each stop are also worthwhile.

The acid test for this book will come when I take the cruise: were the recommendations good or not?

4 stars for book; 3.5 for kindle version 13. Mai 2011
Von tachi1 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I would recommend buying the book before booking your cruise. You get a much better profile of the cruise lines, the destinations, and the age and taste profile of your fellow passengers. It might influence your choice, although the author is extremely diplomatic and couches everything in terms of preferences rather than real critical appraisals. You have to read a little bit between the lines to deduce that a certain cruise might not be for you. A little bit of frankness, would have been welcome.

I'm familiar with all but one of the destinations, and I'm leaving from my home port. My principal reason for buying the book is to learn about cruising, which I've never done before. Although, I have to say, that it was handy to know the differences between flying into an island and sailing in, admission costs, hours of operation, average prices for various services such as taxis, rentals, etc. All the information is up to date and practical.

Judging from the coverage given to the locations that I'm familiar with, and assuming that the locations that I'm not familiar with are equally well covered, the author has done her homework very well. I didn't find any inaccuracies; she exercised good common sense in prioritizing the kind of attraction that might appeal to a wide gamut of interests in the short time available in port. Of course, again, there are no critical comments; everything is ranked about the same, as if the only criteria were personal preference.

I assumed that, since I'm taking my kindle loaded with all my reading material, it would make sense to have the travel guide there as well. This is the first time I've done this and am not sure if I'll do that again. (Reasons listed below).

Kindle version:

* No index, no table of contents (just a listing of contents). You have to use the search function, which doesn't give you an idea how the book is organized or let you casually come across information that you didn't know to specifically search for (unless you read the whole book or bookmark and highlight extensively).
* The author may refer to Chapter 5 in an earlier chapter, and it's no easy job to get there and find your way back to where you were.It is also time consuming to skip whole chapters, screen-by-screen, which don't pertain to you.
* Charts and maps, which by their nature have small print, cannot be enlarged, which means you need a magnifying glass to read them. The fact that the page size has been reduced in order to fit on a 6" screen and everything is in black and white makes matters worse. (Fortunately, Frommer's provides a website where e-reader customers can download & print the maps. It's in the introductory pages, be sure to check for it.)

But, on the whole, regardless of which medium you choose, it is an excellent book that addressed all my reasons for buying it.
