October 2nd to 14th
Just $3,095 with
air, 4-nights hotel, 7-night cruise, ground transportation and
a trip we had in 2015 that was a big hit that we've been asked

being finished typically by early afternoon. Then the ship stays
docked and we are free to explore the different islands. Dinner
is not included, which I liked, since half the fun of exploring
these islands is finding an interesting restaurant and integrating
with the locals. You can make your way back to the ship at any
