Finally decided on Ocean Club West because of all we've read on this site.

I hope we can add it to our favorites when we return.

Thanks "Fodorites"!!

Well, I just moved to Grand Cayman a week ago for work - does that count?

Hoping to get a cruise in sometime this year to some other islands - St. Lucia maybe?

We're doing a cruise in July from Puerto Rico which includes stops in St Thomas, Dominica, St Kitts, St Lucia, Barbados and Antigua.

In the fall, my husband and I will be going to Sandals Whitehouse in Jamaica with some friends (our 3rd trip to Jamaica in 4 years)...and I get to go back a month later as part of a wedding party for my brother. My mom and I will be staying at Country Country in Negril on that trip.

Our first trip to the Carribean (and yes I know it isn't in the Carribean) is The Abacos in June 2008. (Carribean to we in the UK is anything vaguely off the US coast your side of the Azores). This is my 40th birthday and it better be good.

I am going Blue Marlin fishing with my two and a half year old - we have spears, a ball of string and a shotgun. oh and some cricket bats it it gets nasty.

Also will try to swim with Dolphins if they will let us (or if the Japanses whaling fleet hasn't caught them all in the name of science.

Not sure about the tipping situation in the islands is it 0.03% like the States or even up to 0.1% ?? better check.

Very worried about the flight from Nassau to Marsh Harbour - the plane seems to have a very large rubber band and paper wings - also worried about the crash and death of a rather famous R&B type star in MHH whilst using one of these rubber band planes - apparently she had too much luggage - something we are pretty good at. (34 nappies per day is heavy)(sorry diapers or whatever you lot call them).

Finally looking forward to 2 whole weeks without sight a 4 wheels and road rage. Renting a 22 foot skiff sounds like bliss.

Will report back.
