Grand Cayman and Grenada are still trying to recover from the hurricanes that swept through the Caribbean, but other islands are already putting out the welcome mat for tourists. Before you book a visit to an island, try to find out the extent of any damage. Reliable information can be hard to come by in the tourist-dependent Carib-bean. Hotel Web sites are often not reliable. If possible, talk to someone with direct knowledge of an island's or a resort's conditions -- someone who has just been there, for example.

It's 7 a.m. and I'm lounging on a float in the Caribbean Sea. As I take in the sun's early-morning rays, I marvel at the calm water clear enough to be pool water.As lazy as it sounds, this is how I started almost every day on a recent one-week vacation on Grand Cayman, which has been getting attention recently with the release of Tom Cruise's latest movie "The Firm," part of which was filmed on the island.Grand Cayman is best known for its spectacular diving, but this laid-back island also appeals to non-divers like me, even though it's flat and not visually stunning.

And, of course, we heard the man himself wailing tenor sax on "The Arsenio Hall Show." Well, maybe not wailing, but his heart was in it.A 2-inch newspaper ad lured us to the "Ultimate Rhythm & Blues Cruise," starring one of our favorite musicians, Delbert McClinton.
