Guadeloupe, ship excursion – Grande Terre Panoramic

Guadeloupe looks like two islands in the shape of a butterfly. Grande-Terre and Basse-Terre are the two sides joined by a causeway. See our port and beach film and if you can sample the French/Caribbean spicy Creole flavours in any of Point-a-Pitre’s restaurants. You will have ample time after a morning tour.

Grande Terre Panoramic is a morning coach tour, which requires little walking. We had one man in an electric chair who could just stand and not walk, and the driver was incredibly helpful. It is a coach ride up the coast and then looping back on a different route. We stopped at a shopping centre by the main beach that many will have visited. It was a small town. We then went out to the more rugged point where the gentleman on the chair still made it out to see the coastline. The way back was full of tales, our favourite of a ghost. You will have to see the film. The tour was back just after 1.30, but traffic could make it later. It was enjoyable and good value for money.

Essentials – cruise travel labels and our cruise crime novels – oh, and the seasickness bands.

The Port guides here on Doris Visits are a great way to remember your cruise and share with your friends. The mystery thrillers are a whole new way to experience cruising. You may not have been to the ports in the novels, you certainly won’t have been to the parts of the ship they use. All the cruise crime novels will make you feel like you are in the adventure and on the ship – dodge the bullets and stay out of the romance. Ship and cruise accurate, the novels are a great way for new cruisers to discover a ship too. Please share the Amazon link. .CRUISE SHIP HEIST

QUESTION: If I travel and I am more than 24 weeks pregnant am I technically un-insured and liable for all the bills?

ANSWER: Check with your insurance company and lawyer before you travel, but it appears all the companies say no travel.
