Actually you will get very detailed instructions from Angela regarding your arrival. She has a contact person that will help to ensure that your taxi assists you to arrive safely and without surplus fees. You will need to print her instructions out and follow them closely. You also want to arrive on time so that she can properly time your treatments.
Our taxi driver was wonderful, offered to stop at various places, let us stop for pictures etc. for the basic rate--I think that through Angela's contact she ensures a basic rate. We of course tipped this person signficantly because he took extra time and care, and he was promptly waiting for us for our return, which we most appreciated.
Actually, I think this depends on what Cruise line you are sailing. I checked our confirmation and Angela states that a representative will be there for ships arriving at the Coxen Hole terminal. This is not true for the Mahogany Bay (Carnival) terminal - no contact person for Carnival ships, as far as I can tell.
That being said - Angela still provides you with very detailed instructions on where to go and how to get the best rate for a taxi. We are arriving at Mahogany Bay (March 7th) and I am not concerned at all.
my2brads - please do post your experiences (and try to take some photos if you can). Look forward to hearing about it!
