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.

Her work appears regularly in Condé Nast Traveler, Frommers.com, and numerous other magazines, major guidebooks, websites, and newspapers, including the New York Times, Star Ledger, and Boston Herald. When she’s not off cruising somewhere, she lives in the Big Apple with her husband, Arun, and their young sons.

Matt Hannafin is freelance writer, editor, and musician based in New York City. A former Frommer’s senior editor and senior online writer at Expedia Travels magazine, he currently writes a biweekly cruise newsletter for Frommers.com and a monthly column for the Boston Herald, contributes to various magazines and newspapers, edits for several UN agencies and most of the major New York publishing houses, and was co-editor and contributor to the New York Times bestseller 1,000 Places You Must See Before You Die (Workman, 2003).
