    Virgin Atlantic have already started their January sale and BA should start their's soon. Start having a browse and see what prices you can find.
    HolidayHypermarket website can be useful.
    Where in the UK are you?

    Gatwick is our preferred departure airport. Is Travel Zoo an good option as I am aware they have offers from various smaller companies although the price does not always include transfers etc.

    March is the peak season and prices will be at quite high, at least it is not the hurricane season. I have used Caribbean Warehouse in the past who were good, and know friends who have used Holiday Place and they were fully satisfied. Just make sure you are ABTA protected. Also look out in case there are additional charges for transfers etc.

    Caribbean in March will cost minimum of £4K, better budget around £6K for anything decent for a couple.
    A better value option would be to look at a cruise out of Miami or Fort Lauderdale - Inside cabin, 10 night cruise all inclusive with one of the better cruise lines like Celebrity would cost under £2K add on flights - great holiday for under £3K.

    P&O have 15 day Caribbean cruises, which depart from Gatwick. For Mar 2018, I can see offers of £1699 per person (Balcony) which is a good deal, or £1399 for internal cabin.

    One great thing about P&O is that once you leave your luggage with them at gatwick you next see it in your cabin, plus when you disembark the plane in Barbados the transport to the ship is waiting a few steps away from the plane

    Agree that flying direct to Barbados has its advantages but P&O is one of the worst cruiselines afloat. If you want total relaxation choose Celebrity, streets ahead of P&O, you won't regret it. Check out Cruise Critic Reviews - P&O is the pits and ranked so low only 54% would repeat the experience whilst Celebrity gets 90% ratings.
    The disadvantage is you need to fly to Miami to join their ships but Miami is a great experience in its self. Enjoy what ever you choose but do a little research before making a choice.

    I have to disagree, P&O is currently our cruise line of choice, although we have never tried Celebrity. We go to the Caribbean with P&O most years and have a great time,

    Hi

    We stayed at St James Club, Antigua - used Destinology - would definitely recommend them - they price matched other suppliers. https://www.destinology.co.uk/
