  1. I have used one for edges of shirts or the plackets (areas where the buttons or button holes are) if they get puckered up after washing. Mostly did this in college when I had a flat iron but not a clothes iron! 🤣 Might be hard to do a full garment but works for small touch ups.
  2. Amber Cove is in the Dominican Republic and there is information on that board.
  3. I doubt it. They could maybe pay for an extra guide to walk all the way up the trail with your group and then walk that person back down but you don't see the falls until you are going through/down them. You can try contacting the park itself, link below. Probably best to pick a different excursion for the group or at least for that person unfortunately. I am afraid of heights and made it (and had a ton of fun!) but not sure a fear of water would be a good match since you are in the water 90% of the time after the hike up. http://www.27charcos.com/index.php
  4. Thanks @Caribbean Beach Bum! Great information!
  5. Great! Thanks for the info! 🙂
  6. Hi all! We are looking to do a DIY trip to Cemetery Beach to snorkel on our upcoming cruise in March. I have found the bus routes and maps online and that it is pretty easy to just flag them down on the road to get back to the bus depot. What I can't seem to find is if the stops listed below are the only places they stop on the way out or if you let them know where you want to go when you get on if they will drop you somewhere close? The Governor's Residence, the Turtle Center and Hell all look to be somewhat of a hike from Cemetery so we may take a taxi out if those would be the only stop
  7. Agree with this. We had a great trip with Iguana Mama! We normally DIY most ports but liked the option of the transportation and lunch for this one. To note, even if you get yourself there you still have to pay the park for entrance and for a guide (safety reasons) so it will not be fully on your own any way you go. Here is the park's website for more info. http://www.27charcos.com/index.php
  8. If I remember correctly there is either a ladder or slide option at each of the ones with a jump option. I am afraid of heights and honestly the largest jump was the only one that had me very nervous and the ladder option looked scarier than just jumping. Only personal opinion though. The water is pretty deep in some of the areas (or was when we were there December 2018). I am 5'4" and there were definitely some areas I couldn't touch the bottom. Some of the pools below the higher jumps (obviously you don't want to hit the bottom) and a stretch between a couple of the falls required s
  9. The kind that have a strap that goes around your head? I would think that would be ok but if no strap probably not as they would come off easily when you hit the water. Maybe email and ask either the actual park or the tour operator you are looking at using? We emailed Mama Iguana a few questions before booking and they were quick to get back to us with answers. https://www.iguanamama.com/
  10. Columbus Cove, Adrenaline Beach...not sure if there is one more? As I said in my post above, my husband has snorkeled both Columbus and Adrenaline and really didn't see anything. The water was too cold for me to be interested in getting in. If you just enjoy floating and looking around in the water (as my husband does!) it might be worth it to bring your gear. I know you have a kiddo so I wanted to note that the water over by Adrenaline was rougher than at Columbus. There is a rock break to the right but some largish waves still came over when we were there.
  11. We went December 2018 and really loved it! If I remember correctly the walk to the the first set (7) is not too bad, the walk to the second set (12) was more strenuous and the walk to the top (27) was about the same degree of strenuous as the walk to the second but obviously extended. To note we are both 40, live in Colorado (high altitude), are both in relatively good shape and have both been hiking since we were small. We made several "break" stops on the way up and were provided with a bottle of water (they packed the empty bottles down for us). I am guessing how many breaks depends on
  12. We have cruised vegan before on Carnival (2) and Royal (2) so have a pretty good idea of the best way to get our needs met as far as the buffet and main dining room go. I am wondering about Celebrity Specialty Dining, specifically on the Reflection but welcome experience from other Celebrity ships as well. We are taking our next cruise in March 2020 with my in laws. My father-in-law would like to take us all to dinner one night at one of the specialty restaurants but wanted to know if my husband and I would have any options. Has anyone had any luck with vegan options in specialty dining?
  13. We used Go Port Canaveral last December and had a good experience. We stayed at the Hampton Inn Gateway Village. Cost of the whole thing (hotel and port transport to and from) on Go Port Canaveral was the same price as just the hotel would have been. The hotel had a shuttle from the airport and they would also take you anywhere within 2 miles (I think 2 but maybe 5) of the hotel. There were plenty of food options within walking distance as well (2 or 3 just across the parking lot). Go Port Canaveral picked us up in a touring type bus the next morning and took us to the port, then to the a
  14. Sapphire! Not crowded, beautiful water and great snorkeling if you go out from the beach a bit! We took a taxi last December but don't remember the cost.
  15. Stairs unless I am dressed for formal night! Too dangerous in heels and carrying wine! 😉
