    You'll have a great time on any cruise; I've never been on a bad one. I never take less than a 7 day cruise now and still am just getting to finally know the ship by the time I leave. Shorter cruises, even 5 days, seem to end just after I get there. The Southern Caribbean route is my favorite so far and St. Marteen is my favorite island although many others also have fun things to do and nice scenery as well. St Lucia is very nice as well. Most of the lines offer plenty of fun but there do seem to be more kiddies on Carnival so if this bothers you stay away. The kid density is much better if you go when they are in school however when most families don't schedule vacations. I personally like Carnival but thought Royal Caribbean provided a 'classier' ride. Depends on your taste, Carnival is more of a 'party' boat. If you like tours be sure to check out the reviews on line. I've found great tours not provided by the cruise lines that gave much more at a better price but you have to do your research to find them. I think you;'l find a great romantic time at sea!

    We'll take your bait here at Away.com Answer Central -- basically because we're jealous -- and say try the British Virgin Islands, a mellow and untroubled place that espouses all possible stereotypes of Caribbean perfection. Loads more info for you about where to go and what to see at this page: http://vacation.away.com/british-virgin-islands/travel-m3-cid305-british+virgin+islands-midtoparticles-p1-travel-articles.html. Have a great trip; send us a postcard!

    Bonaire is a grand place, but it lacks in sandy beaches. Periodic storms unveil them in various parts across the island. But there is a great beach a Windsurf City, a relaxed spot where you can rent windsurfing rigs. It's also got a great restaurant (very casual). That's a little bit away from town. Closer by, you can chill out on Eden's Beach, which has a nice sandy cove (albeit kind of small). But your best bet is to hop a boat (or take a kayak) and head out to Klein Bonaire, a small, deserted island off the main coast. If you're looking for a laid-back scene, Bonaire is it--esp if you like diving and snorkeling. Not much of a downtown scene, but do check out Little Havana, a great Dutch ex-pat bar/music venue. If you want more action, Curacao is grand--great beaches, live music, great food, more diverse landscapes. But they also get hordes of cruise ships, and the reef system isn't nearly as healthy.
