    Just been updating some of my weather links to put on my Netbook and the barbadosweather.org site has improved somewhat. A couple of links for 'live' rainfall radar and satellite images for our region. Satellite http://www.barbadosweather.org/GOES16/Jiren_displayer.php?Instrument=GOES16&Product=11um&Sector=West_Carib&Type=BW&Title=Infrared 11.2um (Long wave IR Band 14) Rainfall Radar (Some are a bit intermittent) http://www.barbadosweather.org/Composite/kidbuuComposite_Lionel_displayer.php?Product=Reflectivity&Sector=fullView&Composite=Sabre&PlanetOfTheApes=1541838289 Keith (Southend)

    Cuba excursion conundrum...?

    Has anyone done the 4 hour excursion 'HEMINGWAY IN HAVANA', just wondered if this was a morning excursion? Keith (Southend)
  3. With the Marella Caribbean season making a start, I thought I would post some of the current weather being experienced in the region. Due to the way I obtain and decode some of the data it is always 2 days old, but it gives an idea of max/min temperatures and any rainfall. Over the next few days & weeks I'll update with additional information that maybe of interest. I'm just an enthusiast, but I will try to answer an questions if anyone has any. We head out on the 27th November 2018, so am particularily interested in the western Caribbean and Central America region, but I have included the whole Caribbean area. Hope this displays OK, if not I have another way it could be shown. Enjoy Keith (Southend)

    Cuba excursion conundrum...?

    I think you just sold that to us. The difference between going in the vintage car is only £18 each, so we might as well 'push the boat out' so to speak ps: I keep getting that old 80's Wham song in my head. We have been to Cuba for a week a few years back, stayed at Veradera, but only did a day trip to Havana, not the evening, so looking forward to this. Many thanks kruzseeka for your input. Keith (Southend)
  5. Probably the most unsettled weather will be through the Mediterranean Sea after which time the wind will be behind you with no tropical disturbences to worry you. If you can read the pressure charts, here's one that will update 4 times a day... http://old.wetterzentrale.de/pics/avnpanel1.html It's been some years since I've stayed in Jamaica, but I think there was an exit fee. Googling comes up with "airport departure tax of US$35 is payable when departing Jamaica." I hope this helps. Keith (Southend)
  6. There are two excursions we would like to do on the FULL day in Havana, Cuba. 1. 'Vinales' goes into the countryside - 10 hours duration. 2. 'Cabaret Tropicana' 4 hours. The question is does anyone know what time the 10 hour trip gets back and what time the Tropicana departs? My gut feeling it can't be done. 😭 Keith (Southend)
  7. I am assuming American Dollars? Keith (Southend)

    Seems seem to be up and running now, can access My Account and also view/book excursion, albeit a new link/website, link obtained via Cruise Critic. Although just today Marella have emailed the link. Looks like we seem to be the 'Cuban Fusion' week (w/c 4th December) that actually has a full day in Havana. Keith (Southend)

    Cuban Fusion (Cuban confusion)

    Can't find the question re: Tayrona National Park excursion. I'm going to leave booking any excursions for that port until we're on the ship. Often other excursions are available once on board. I'm also going to have to wait until we're on board for the Havana FULL day, yes it looks like we have one! I fancy the 'Vinales' (10 hours), the Countryside looks wonderful, however, we also want to go to the Tropicana Club in the evening (4 hours). Does anyone know if this can be done? I think you would be getting off one bus and onto another, so missing a clean up, change and dinner. Keith (Southend)

    Yes, that link works for me, many thanks. I had emailed TUI but no reply. It also seems to confirm that the Cuban Fusion (4th December week) is in port from 07:00 as some of the excursions are upto 10 hours duration. In fact I had a confirmation email (dated 16th October) with this itinary. A shame that one of the excursions for Colombia (Pride of Panama week) is no longer listed 'Tayrona National Park' 😞 Many thanks Keith (Southend)
