Postcard From Ventura

Greetings from Ventura in a very hot and sunny Caribbean.

I hear you are all suffering, frost, ice and even some more snow back in the UK? Maybe you should start thinking about booking Caribbean cruise for next winter? (I should have some very good offers for Caribbean cruises at the end of the month – watch this space!)

From the moment we set foot off the plane in Barbados it has been glorious Caribbean sunshine.

A lovely day at Mullins Bay in Barbados. A lazy day, not moving far from Breakers Bar on deck 16 for most of the day in St Lucia. Grenada what a fantastic day on stunning Grande Anse Beach. Curacoa and Aruba were new ports to me and didn’t disappoint. And so much more yet to come. Evenings onboard just leave me spoilt for choice, but I would like to bet that non of you were lying on a sunlounger under the stars, sipping champagne and listening to a steel band last night? or woke up to breakfast on your balcony this morning? It could be you this time next year maybe?

Full report of the cruise from start to finish will be published on my return

    Hello Jane….

    You don`t actually know me – but I stumbled across yr site recently….have spent many an envious hour reading your reviews (and working at the same time obviously….!!) your writing and photos describe each trip so well I can almost taste the fizz & cocktails with you (a girl after my own heart!!)….really looking forward to this new trip report (we were on Ventura last January) can`t wait for our next cruise – your hints of some good offers to come sounds fab…….extra revenue for the red bar in my case !!

    Enjoy the rest of your trip….


    PS…snowing in Hampshire as I type….. 🙁

      Hi Aly

      I guess you wont want to hear that the Caribbean is extremely hot and sunny at the moment and that the cocktails have been flowing nicely 🙂
      I have a full and frank report as a project in progress on this present Ventura Caribean cruise so you can read the blow by blow account, and view the photos on my return!

      The review should be along in the next few days, so keep checking. As for photos, there are 1000’s so as soon as I can get those sorted they will go live too (after a bit of editing of course)
      This time last week i was in Antigua *sigh* one of my all time favourite caribbean ports. I had Darkwood Beach all to my self for over an hour (you need to be an early bird like me) and it was like being in paradise!
