  1. OMG I would twist completely off. I mean after I started off nice and they didn’t make those ridiculous charges go away. Hopefully you can get them to issue the correct charges. Otherwise it’s scorched Earth.
  2. We went with shoreexcursioneer last year. Nice motor coach. Service was on time. Paradise was nothing spectacular. The pool is a little way back from the beach which meant no vendors. The food at their restaurant was not good at all and was way overpriced. The beach is the beach. It’s just like all the rest of the beach. We will give Infinity a try next time but really the best time we have had was going with a Bodden guide who took us to a public access point to the beach. Then we went to West End Village to snorkel Half Moon Bay and had lunch at a fantastic restaurant close by. West Bay is nice until about 11am when the drunks start to get rowdy and the vendors get thick. After that I much prefer the vibe in West End.
  3. Unfortunately there is no test for entitlement or stupidity.
  4. Cruise Critic needs a counter of how many threads are started about alcohol. Drink packages, sharing drink packages, number of drinks, strength of drinks, size of drinks, lack of drinks, cost of drinks, service of drinks, alcohol purchased on the ship, alcohol purchased off the ship, alcohol carried on, alcohol stashed in luggage, rum runners, alcohol on excursions, drinking age on U.S. cruises, drinking age of every foreign port on the planet. Did I miss anything? Having quit drinking alcohol many years ago I should have millions set aside. Not sure what happened. 😂
  5. First off, shoplifter pants are those that are worn down below the buttocks and can conceal all sorts of items being stolen from a store. It’s just an expression really as I have seen plenty things shoplifted via huge purses, jackets, and even big dresses. One of my favorite quotes is attributed to Albert Einstein: ”Two things are infinite; the Universe and human stupidity. And I’m not so sure about the Universe.”
  6. There’s really no way to generalize about that. It depends on so many factors. Departure port, itinerary, cruise line, length, time of year. My experience has been book what you want, when you want it and watch for price decreases until the 90 mark. After that just quit looking and enjoy your cruise.
  7. Just wear shoplifter pants, a wife beater, flip flops and a cap on backward. Everyone will think you’re too stupid to have an intelligent discussion about anything and will not talk to you.
  8. OTC cold/ flu meds I’ve learned to do the math on. So many doses times so many days on the ship times 2- me and my wife. I have had that stuff and was grateful for the continuous dosing that allows. After all, that’s what we do with prescription drugs.
  9. Me too. Used it a bunch with just the surf package. Worked fine.
  10. For my money I’m taking a 10 minute taxi ride to Blue Key and eating ceviche right there. You won’t need to pay the access fee just to eat. Take a walk along the Malecon and grab a taxi back whenever you want. Plenty of time to enjoy something other than the port.
  11. I definitely thought it was worth the cost. My wife is a pool girl so she loved sitting there reading. The snorkeling from the end of the long pier is very good and for beginners there were attendants in the water keeping an eye on everyone. If you’re not a beginner swim out to the edge of the reef where it drops off to just the most amazing deep blue ever. The food was surprisingly good and you can leave just about anytime you want.
  12. We go to both places several times a year and I’ve never taken Pesos. Prices are listed in dollars and everyone takes them.
  13. As long as you also wear a ball cap on backward and a wife beater. Otherwise you’ll be overdressed.
  14. Cabs will be lined up. Just tell them there are 10 of you and they’ll get you there.
  15. Temporary Cal’s https://www.tripadvisor.com/Restaurant_Review-g2548902-d2633876-Reviews-Temporary_Cal_s_Cantina-First_Bight_Roatan_Bay_Islands.html amazing food and view.
  16. We just booked a March 2020 and have three more booked this year. I’m always actively looking for the right deal so it’s only a matter of time until we book more next year. And the next.
  17. Check MSC, there are several that are in that duration window. They are just a bit over your budget though but not much. As has been said, call a TA.
  18. As of a month ago we had no problem with either small 110 fans or small brown extension cords. I run a cord from the desk over to the bed and plug both fans in with the end of the cord under the bed in the middle. Fans go on the nightstands. Noone has ever said a word in 30 cruises.
  19. $1900 for 4 passengers and 4-1/2 hours? Chicken indeed. No.
  20. Beachiekeen.....awesome username. 😂
  21. Just wear a tee shirt, shoplifter pants and a hoodie every evening.
  22. You may not get many responses here on this. There are lots of reviews on Google and probably Trip Advisor too. Good luck.
