  1. I have an absolute fascination with the caribbean sea. Having the whole day to ourselves, doing things at our pace, driving around the island and seeing the salt mines. slave shacks, lighthouses, flamingos, donkeys, etc.... and not on a time schedules (we were there for many hours). The cost was $95 for the two of us (plus drinks and lunch). We could drink and snack along the way. I just loved the beauty of it. Also if you are a diver, I hear the diving is really great.
  2. We used Bonaire Cruisers. You just email them and let them know the details of your cruise (ship, day, how many people) and they will send you more information. You pay them when you get there. For us, it was $95 for the entire day... SO WORTH EVERY PENNY. There are two different routes you can take. Make sure you take the route that goes by the salt mines. So much to see on that route. There is a nice beach bar where you can get drinks and some food about 1/2 way through. You'll see all kinds of fun stuff. St. Maarten used to be my favorite... it is now my second best place after Bon
  3. But it leaves out of San Juan, right? Not sure that will work for us. Dang! I got my hopes up! If you need an excursion for Bonaire, I highly suggest you rent a golf cart and drive it around the island for the day. It was THE BEST excursion and highly worth the $90 it cost the two of us. If you need more info, let me know!
  4. We had an ABC cruise scheduled for November 12, 2021 on the Explorer of the Seas. Mid October, Royal moved people to a "similar" cruise on Radiance of the Seas (Labadee, San Juan, St. Maartin, St. Kitts, St. Croix and Dominican Republic). We specifically booked our cruise for the ABC islands. I went to look into rebooking another ABC cruise and it appears that none of the itineraries include Bonaire for any future cruises. They include Aruba and Curacao but not Bonaire. Does anyone know why that is? We are super bummed because Bonaire is our favorite!
