My hubby and I did this cruise in Februay 2006 and had one of our best holidays. During the cruise we had a Wild West Night, a Red,White and Blue Night, a Caribbean Night and 2 formal nights. Wild West - trying to buy cowboy hats in Dominica. Red, White & Blue - buying bits and bobs in Antigua!! The age group was really mixed, probably starting at around 40ish. I envy you - it was brilliant. If you would like any more details, please feel free to as.
Thanks to Patterson of Bedlington for her answer to my original query. Since you kindly offered to respond to any further enquires, can you/someone please tell me which system is used to pay for goods & services? I've been told by someone who used a different cruiseline (not Fred Olsen) that no money changed hands and final bills were settled at the end of the cruise. Personally I would rather pay as I went along so there were no shocks in store for me!
Thanking you in advance.
