if you are reconsidering faxing the info, what are you planning to do?


My thinking is a fax goes from point A to point B and only those on the receiving end will have access to the card number...but with an email attachment, I would think that should the email be compromised, the number of people who could have access to the number is infinite.

I know I am overthinking this, but I would really be appreciative if someone who is planning on booking St John's and actually does book it, would give us a play by play. Thanks!

I was wondering about this also. Does it matter that it is an international phone number?

luvtheships - that is a good idea but I am not sure I have a card with that low of a limit.

Does anyone know if they charge your card right away or wait until you arrive to actually charge the card? Most place, like hotels, take the card number but do not run it through until you get there.

from what I am understanding here, they are charging the card when you arrive and that they just want the card in case you dont show up. Also, they said that if the ship is diverted they wouldn't charge you.

I really think a good alternative, short of sending them an incorrect number, is to actually use a card specifically for this transaction.and this transaction only.

Then when you arrive, just pay cash or have them charge that card...of course you would want to actually have that card with you.
good question about the international fax phone number...anybody have the answer to this? any problems faxing to international numbers from UPS or Fedex?

We visited September 2011 and our card was not charged until the day we got there....we did not have any problems with unauthorized charges.

how did you send back the reservation form? email attachment? fax? Or did you call them with your card number?

This is what I am grappling with trying to decide the best way. Thanks

my concern is not with a person stealing my card number, which can happen even by calling them, it is with sending is over an unsecure website.

I wonder why their room reservation websit is secure or why they don't just put this reservation form on that.

We scanned the reservation form and sent it back in an email.

Thanks!

Have just booked this and they said it was okay to give a debit card number to secure the booking. I emailed the completed form back and they responded with pick up information. They will only charge the card in the event of a no show. We will pay cash on the day. I will charge up the, as yet, empty debit card before we leave in case of unforseen circumstances.

Have to say they have responded within minutes to each of my emails and obviously have a system in place to find out whether a ship is docking or tendering. If docking the meetup is right outside the ship and if tendering we are instructed to walk 200m in the direction of the cruise dock to the yacht club as no vehicles allowed in the centre of the town.

If this works out, it will be much less expensive than the ship beach transfer.

For anyone interested, their web address is: www.saint john.gr and email is info@saint john.gr

We will be in Mykonos on August 26th on the Ruby Princess. Please, anyone who has done this excursion write a few lines about your experience! Thanks!
how was the resort?
we will be there this September and wonder if they still have the package
thanks

Hi - we are just back from the Crown Princess. Booked this package on the phone with Katerina at the hotel. Gave my info on the phone and there was no problem. If the ship cant get in - no charges. We loved our day at this resort and highly recommend it. Picked up at 9 am , about 20 minute journey when you see quite a bit of the island, and dropped off at reception at which was quite clearly a 5* hotel. Checked in, they gave us a drink, a token for the huge beach towels and we were given a ride down to the pool area. You have a locker in the Spa where you can change. We had the choice of their lovely loungers , the situation is beautiful. The food was excellent and the salads huge and reasonable (suggest 1 between 2). There are several places to eat around the pool area, really nice. The beach is lovely - you will remember your day here - go for it !!
Have a great time

Hello... trying to find out a couple things about this resort... is the ocean water warm enough to swim in during mid to late Oct? Also, is it worth bringing our snorkeling gear to the beach at the St John's resort?

Thanks for any info

Celine

We will be in Mykenos in early Sept, ship arrives at 2 and sails at 10pm. Do you feel that it would make sense to book the St John package
for this late of an arrival?

Do you think early May would be a good time to visit this resort? Did you just email them and ask for the 30euro package?

Hey just wanted to share -
I contacted Saint John to see if they were offering the package again for this cruise season.

Happily they responded with YES & sent me the email reservation form.

The Beach access/transport package is still 30 Euro
The beach/food/massage package is 140 Euro

Hmm pretty sure what we'll be doing there

Hi!
Is there WiFi available at the resort, for free, a fee or?
Will be there with celebrity reflection 16th of September 2013 .
Had been in mykonos may 2012 with princess cruises. Didn't book their shuttle, decided to walk. A fisherman with a 'trike' offered us a 5 € trip to town. Really fun
