  1. Chill Island is the left cove. Cabanas to the left chairs under trees to the right.
  2. There are two excursions involving the train. One is just the train ride (Currently $124) and the other is the train followed by a catamaran ride ($179). Has anyone done the catamaran? Is it worthwhile?
  3. I'm an amateur/avid birder and tried to hook up with a woman in Nassau that used to take folks birding. She was not available when I was there in February but here's what she sent me and I did see a few lifers in Nassau. I've listed the birds that you could see, with some suggestions of where you could go.: White-cheeked Pintail Least Grebe Smooth-billed Ani Mangrove Cuckoo Bahama Woodstar Limpkin Neotropic Cormorant Cuban Pewee La Sagra's Flycatcher Loggerhead Kingbird Thick-billed Vireo Bahama Mockingbird Red-legged Thrush Western Spindalis Painted Bunting Bananaquit Greater Antillean Bullfinch Cuban Grassquit Black-faced Grassquit You might consider visiting the Retreat Gardens on Village Road, east of the town, which is an 11 acre botanical garden where you should find some local birds and migrant warblers.. Ardastra Gardens west of the town is also a good spot. This is a low key zoo and conservation centre which attracts wild birds. There you would probably find the White-cheeked Pintail and there is an injured West Indian Whistling Duck there also, they are not in captivity. There's also a pond on Paradise Island at Lakeview Drive east of Comfort Suites, you can take a water taxi over to the island from the cruise ship docks. Pick up a Bahamas Trailblazers map as you come ashore to find where to go. Buses run in both directions. If you use ebird, you can see what people are finding in those locations.
  4. We were blessed that my 81yo other with emphysema and in a nursing home had the virus and never had more than a fever. She is doing great now. My wife and son both had it - were in bed for a couple days and then fine. In 59 years I got one flu shot and got the flu. Will never get another...... I won't sail if I have to wear a mask.... with all the eating and drinking (non-alcohol) I'd need one with a motion detector that would remove it as a water bottle, glass, straw, fork or spoon approached.
  5. When do you sail? We were on CocoCay in March and were really chilly in our Chill Island cabana. So much so that I would never plop down money for a cabana again. If there is a cool ocean breeze you may be really cold. It was 20 degrees warmer at the pool just because you were out of the wind. Warmer months are probably a lot different.
  6. I get The Key on shorter sailings. We have a 7-day Western Caribbean on Enchantment the end of November. Departure isn't until 8:30 PM. What time is boarding? I'm assuming we get dinner? I would probably spend the day in San Juan and not use the Chops lunch on embarkation day. Voom is $18 for 2; Key is $17. Not thinking it's worth it this go round on Enchantment
  7. That’s what I figured. But I called 3 or 4 times over the 9 months. They could see the transaction but could not apply it? Oh well - I’ll call from now on....😁
  8. Just booked Western Mediterranean next July! Using FCC from Canceled Alaska this year. And now all 4 kids want to go. There is always a silver lining to every problem!
  9. This seems really odd.... Last July we booked an Alaska cruise for 5/15/20. I purchased $500 of OBC using credit card points. I kept waiting and waiting for it to appear in the cruise planner. I called a few times and they kept saying it would get applied later. When the trip was canceled it had still never shown up in the planner. When I called for OBC status they said I could apply it to another reservation. So we booked the free casino cruise a couple weeks ago. Having a new reservation number I called to get the OBC reward added and within 48 hours it shows up in the cruise planner. So I'm happy to see the $500 show up. But why after 9 months did it never show for the Alaska cruise? It's almost as if they knew the cruise would be canceled....
  10. We had 5/15 on Radiance. Re-booked for 7/17 but never paid deposit. Can't do August or September so canceled 7/17 and going to use FCC for Western Mediterranean next July. And all 4 kids want to go now. Only 2 were going to Alaska.... I will get back to Alaska, just not this year.
  11. This will be our first visit to all these places. Please help us narrow our places to see/things to do by listing the stop with "must see/must do" and "avoid....."
  12. Just curious - did you go in to cruise planner and cancel the purchases? Or did they get canceled as part of the cruise getting canceled. I canceled "The Key" in the cruise planner for our May cruise and had refund in 3 days. That was before I knew about the 125% Cruise Planner credit option.
  13. No - refunds should hit your credit card in a couple days.
  14. American Airlines extended to 12/31/2021! YAY! Though I'd rather get a refund...
