  1. Freeport transformation for the win!
  2. Yup a refrigerator review, it was cold! Sunshine deck 8 interior, the refrigerator sits in the open under the mirror vanity so cant prove the open door closed door theory.
  3. Arrived on the sunshine Feb 28th along with 5 other ships. Was a bit concerned about transit to and from Maho with that many people in town, but it was not an issue. Rode the water taxi across to the shopping center and caught the bus from there. Just look for the bus that has a "maho" sign in the window. Cost pp was 2.00 each way. Transit time from the shopping center was 30 minutes going and 35 returning. Caught the return bus in front of the "market/grocery store" next to the airport for the return. I don't recommend the beach for swimming, it was packed, the waves were huge, and they beach itself is quite steep with maybe a 20 ft landing on top between the street and water. One large wave made it all the way to the street, soaked everyones beach towels, shoes (including mine) and everything else on the sand. Stayed about 2 hours saw 2 737's land and a number of small atr7's and other puddle jumping aircraft. No large planes took off during the morning 10 to 12ish, i believe you have to wait until at least mid afternoon for the larger aircraft to leave, but didn't want to chance being late to the ship.
  4. Did not use the lockers, but every shop in the port accepted US dollars.
  5. Arrived on Feb 25th in Grand Turk on the Sunshine. Went to the left after leaving the pier. The water was very clear with little seaweed. Water temperature was a touch cool, but still stayed in it all day. With two ships in town I was worried about getting a chair after seeing other photos/reviews so we docked at 8 and i was at the beach by 8:15. Very few people around. Did not get busy until around 10. As soon as you arrive at the beach you will see the vendors asking you about chair rentals. The green tops are free but they are not in the front row. The front row cost me 30.00 , included two chairs and an umbrella. You will get a wrist band that indicates you paid, saw some confusion between the vendors about who took payments from different individuals so just make sure you get a wrist band after payment. As the day went on the beach got more crowded, but it felt less crowded than Mahogany Bay at peak time. Purchased my food and beverage at margaritaville, 6 beers (local turks head) 35.00, i think the nachos were 18. Margaritaville does have lockers available. The shopping area is clean with a few shops, did not see any aggressive vendors. I have never been to a beach closer to the ship, awesome spot. If you want a show, keep a few nachos in your hand and walk into the water, the fish will swarm you.
  6. Struggling with itineraries for a 7 day cruise. Steps away from the dock are these two choices. Which one should i choose?
  7. Are these necessary any more? i am tired of having to scroll them them daily to get to actual content. The royal, princess, nor celebrity forums have a warning on how to behave. Can my fellow funship cruisers control yourselves when posting without these instructions?
