Cruise ports: good and bad

cruise ports good bad

Paul and Carole of Paul and Carole Love to Travel – catchy name, that! – have solicited advice from a shipload of cruisers as to their notions of the best and worst cruise ports. I’ve only been to a couple of them, but the verdict(s) tally with my own views. There’s one port stirring a bit of controversy, and amusement.

Then again, I love cruising, and if a port isn’t highly rated, I’m happy to sit with a good book and a cool drink and watch everyone else wasting their time.

But some ports are absolute crackers, and posts like this get me itching to go cruising again.


We have cruised many times and are always planning our next cruising adventure. Thinking about our past experiences, we know the cruise ports of call we have loved and know those where we have asked the question ‘Why did the ship stop here?

With this in mind, we decided to reach out to our fellow cruise bloggers to hear their thoughts on their experiences, both good and bad.

So we asked our cruise blogger friends this question –

‘What are the best and worst cruise ports in the world?’

This is what they had to say!
