  1. Hi Megan_Rae, Bahamas is really, really expensive; especially food. You can walk to Junkaroo Beach, it's a free public beach about a 15 - 20 minute walk from the port. It gets really crowded later in the day so if you can get off the ship early and get there early, you'll be okay. You can rent chairs and umbrellas, or obviously skip that and bring towels from the ship. If you are really on a budget, I'd suggest bringing some Ziploc baggies and saving some emptied water bottles (or get each kiddo one from the dollar store) and pack yourself some lunch and snacks because like I said food is re
  2. Okay, I've abandoned the Exuma idea and now am just going to do a day pass at a resort. It's a bit of a special day so I'm looking for a day with no hassle that will be relaxing but fun. Question: Breezes on Cable Beach or Riu on Cabbage Beach? Both all inclusive; looks like Breezes, at $94, is families and Riu, at $129, is adults only. (would love to do Sandals but can't seem to get a day pass there.) We are interested in beautiful beach, great pool, cleanliness, and good drinks (preferably brought by wait staff). Not as concerned with dining or activities available. ANYONE have any wo
  3. I love Xcaret and if you've never been would recommend going. I've been there about half a dozen times. There is so much to do and see....it's a little like a Caribbean Disney-park (with no rides, obviously). You can relax on the beach, go tubing in the caves, see music and arts demonstrations, walk through the Day of the Dead displays....just very very cool and educational and fun and relaxing. That being said, i see the tour is eight hours, but if it is taking two hours to get there and two hours to get back, leaving you only four hours in the park, then I would skip it and put it on your
  4. Yes, thank you! I decided after the first "Don't do it!" to go with a day pass to a resort hotel instead. Thanks for the push in the right direction!
  5. Hello, wondering if anyone has taken the Nassau Shore Excursion Powerboat to Exuma tour through Viator---it states it returns at 5:30 pm at the Hilton. I'm travelling on July 10, coming into port at 7:00 am (no problem), but --- Ship leaves at port at 6:00 pm. The Hilton appears to be a ten minute walk. I really want to risk it---I know it's cutting it way close. Any thoughts, ideas, suggestions? Has anyone attempted this? Thanks for your input....
  6. Hello, I saw your post and wanted to respond to you regarding snorkeling in Bonaire. Please, please, please, book your excursion through Woodwind Bonaire. It was and always will be the best snorkeling I've ever done, and I've snorkeled around the world, including the Great Barrier Reef. Dee and Ulf will meet every single one of your needs and you can correspond with them in advance to let them know what type of equipment you would like. On board, they carry multiple types of flotation devices (for novices to more experienced snorkelers) including noodles, paddle boards, full flotation vest
  7. Thinking about doing the BOGO specialty dining package. Is it the first two nights? I'm on Adventure--so it will be Chops and Giovannis, correct? Is there any disadvantage to doing this? Thank you!
  8. Can I just walk off the boat and wander around? Is town that close? I'm all about that!
  9. We are on Adventure for the ABC/St.M cruise. Renting a jeep in Aruba, Snorekling in Bonaire, Maho in St. Maarten---but what to do in Curacao? The last cruise I was on there, I was sick and never left the ship. We are two active adults with two 16 year old girls. Any suggestions for must do that won't cost an arm and a leg? (are other port days are already a bit costly with our planned itinerarys). Thanks y'all!
