Product description

Berlitz Pocket Guide Caribbean Ports of Call is the ultimate handy guide to cruising the Caribbean, with 192 pages combining authoritative narrative detail and stunning colour photography. The book begins with two inspirational features: a rundown of the Caribbean's Top 10 Attractions, followed by an itinerary for a Perfect Cruise in the region. A foreword on cruising the Caribbean - written by cruising expert Douglas Ward, the world's leading authority on cruise ships - sets the scene, followed by an introduction to the Caribbean's history, the pleasures of visiting the islands by ship, and the impact of the cruise industry on the region. Throughout the guide, colour Fact Sheets brief you on points of historical and cultural interest, as well as tips on how to get the most out of your cruising experience. The main section of the book is the Where to Go chapter, which tells you everything you need to know about the sights and attractions of not only the popular Caribbean ports of call but also the US homeports, and those stopping points often found on Caribbean cruise itineraries - such as the Bahamas, Mexico and Central America. From Sailing Out of America, which covers Miami, Key West and more, the book heads for the ancient Maya ruins, magnificent waterfalls and stunning beaches of Mexico and Central America. We pass through the Bahamas before travelling in turn through the Western Caribbean, which includes Cuba and Jamaica; the Eastern Caribbean, for those classic tropical island paradises; and the Southern Caribbean, whose islands, off the Venezuelan coast, offer a fascinating mix of cultures and landscapes - from South American jungle in Trinidad to desert in Dutch Aruba. At the start of each geographical section, a full-page Fact Sheet summarises the practical essentials for the region, from Calendar Highlights to Money Matters; while maps on the cover flaps help you navigate around some of the main spots. Handy Travel Tips comprise the final section of the guide - a summary of practical cruise information which guides you through Choosing A Cruise; Preparing for the Trip; Life on Board; Life on Shore; and Cruise Line Information.
