My husband and I had the pleasure of cruising in the Caribbean for 7 nights recently. This was the fourth cruise for us and the accomodations on the ms Westerdam (Holland America Line) were the best we’d experienced. I must say, however, that I was disappointed in some of the ports of call. The hurricanes of recent years have taken a toll on the various islands. Grand Cayman, in particular, was a destination I was looking forward to. I found it to be much less impressive, to say the least, than my expectations. H. Ivan several years ago apparently devastated much of the island. There are still large piles of rubble stacked in places one would expect them to have been removed. The more I travel the more I appreciate staying at home! I guess that’s the point. By seeing other parts of the world, we can often appreciate better our own little corner of it.
