  1. Hello bookbabe and CT Sean: Thanks so much for your feedback. I don't see much difference between the two other than 'drinks' and of course, the price. Wishing y'all a happy holiday season! Thanks again!
  2. Hello: My husband and I will be sailing on Celebrity Equinox in Feb. 2020 with friends. We are currently researching two excursions at the White House mansion that is offered through Celebrity. If anyone has done either one of the excursions listed below, could you kindly provide feedback. We aren't big drinkers but maybe a drink or two with a snack. Thank you very much for your assistance! _________________________________________________________ Escape To A Private Beach Mansion With Open Bar ~ $229 per person Overview ~ Escape to the stunning White House colonial mansion for a day of relaxation and fun. The White House is an exclusive private colonial mansion located directly beside the turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea and a pristine, private beach. Unwind on a beach chaise lounge chair, sink your feet into the powdery soft white sand, take a dip in the mansion's fresh-water swimming pool, and sip a specialty cocktail at the bar. Enjoy all-inclusive drinks as you work on your tan and recharge your mind, body, and spirit. For those who want to experience a more active adventure, kayaks, beach floats, and snorkel equipment are available on site. GCK1 The White House, Beach Mansion Escape ~ $99 per person Overview ~ Escape to the White House, where you’ll swim in the azure Caribbean Sea, relax on a beach chair, and enjoy time at one of Grand Cayman’s most private colonial beach mansion. Embark on a scenic drive along a coastal road, passing through Bodden Town, the Cayman Islands’ original capital. Meet our hostess at our exclusive private colonial beach mansion, located right beside the Caribbean Sea. Then, unwind, recharge, and relax on a chaise lounge chair on the beach. If you wish, take a refreshing swim in the crystal clear ocean from the deck, with steps that lead into to ocean. Indulge in an à la carte drink and food service at additional cost on the 6,000 sq./ft. deck built out over the Caribbean Waters, where you may dine alfresco or enjoy one of the many concoctions created by our friendly bar staff at the Gatsby Deck Bar If you want a more active day, rent a kayak and explore the coast. Or, snorkel and experience the fascinating marine life beneath the waves, or take a dip in the fresh water swimming pool. GCM6
  3. Hello: Has anyone taken this excursion "Scenic Rafting Experience, Lunch & Swim" on Celebrity? Overview ~ Get an up-close look at the unspoiled tropical beauty of the Uch Ben Kah eco-park, 717 acres of mangroves, streams, and forests that have been exclusively set aside for water activities that have a low impact on the environment. Settle back and sip sparkling wine as you enjoy 75 minutes of natural scenery along the banks of a stream. Uch Ben Kah is a calm crystal-clear extension of the Bacalar Lagoon, nestled between four different types of mangroves that harbor various species of wildlife. As your guide-maneuvers the four-person raft, be on the lookout for some of the wild birds (parrots, pelicans, cormorants, and sea gulls,) and mammals (tapir, deer, and crocodiles) that make their home in this abundant tropical habitat. Linger over a tasty lunch of beef, fish, chicken or barbecued ribs, accompanied by side dishes, at the Lagoon Camp. Then take a refreshing swim in pristine waters before boarding your air-conditioned transportation for the return trip to the pier. CMF6 If anyone has taken this excursion, could you kindly let me know the pros/cons and any pictures that you have to provide me a visual. Thanks so much for your help! Happy Cruising!
  4. Thanks so much for the update. Congrats to Owen for winning the scavenger challenger tonight! WTG Owen!
  5. Andrew... Thanks for a fabulous review and all the pictures. The storm pictures are amazing! Enjoy your day!
  6. Hi Everyone: I just received this email from Royal Caribbean... ABOUT YOUR UPCOMING TRAVELS Dear Guest, Along with our Chief Meteorologist, James Van Fleet, we’ve been closely monitoring Tropical Storm Dorian. Given its current strength and path projections, we’ve decided to close CocoCay until Wednesday, September 4th, which impacts your visit there. Our CocoCay Team is made up of over 400 Bahamian locals and it’s important that they evacuate to care for their families and secure their homes, as soon as possible. Please know, we evaluated all options, and this is the best decision, as there is no room for error when it comes to the safety and security of our guests, crew, and employees. This is our top priority. At this time, we’re in the process of securing alternate ports and we will have an itinerary update to share with you tomorrow, August 28th, by 3:00 PM EST. Any pre-purchased Royal Caribbean International shore excursions for CocoCay will be refunded to your onboard expense account in the form of a credit. If your onboard spend does not reach this amount, the remaining balance will be refunded to your credit card on file. We are terribly sorry for this last-minute change, but appreciate your understanding and cooperation during this unexpected circumstance. We remain super confident that you’ll have a wonderful vacation with us! Sincerely, Royal Caribbean International
  7. Thank you very much for the picture. This will be perfect! Have a great weekend!
  8. That would be great. My husband needs shade so if there are plenty around the beaches/pool that would work. Thanks so much for letting me know.
  9. Thank you very much for checking into this, I greatly appreciate it. Hope the person that needed medical emergency will be OK. Enjoy your cruise and looking forward to your posts.
  10. Hi John and thanks so much for your amazing review on Harmony! Happy Belated Birthday! I'll be sailing on Harmony in two weeks and we'll be stopping at Coco Cay. Are clam shells available for the day? If so, where are they located and how much? I read on CC that there are no clam shells but the email that I received from RCI noted that there are clam shells. What time were you able to get off the ship in St. Maarten? We're planning a day at the beach and would like to get off the ship ASAP. Bella... OMG she is precious! I'm a co-parent to a two year old Westie named Daisy and she has me wrapped! I love Westie's. Have a fantastic cruise and enjoy!
  11. Thank you very much! We'll be sailing this itinerary next month! I hope you are having a fantastic cruise! Enjoy!
