  1. Not a catamaran tour but an awesome excursion. We went with them last year and still a year later my son is talking about it. He had a blast and we loved it. They were super friendly, funny, and just all around awesome. They made our cruise. They have amazing reviews!!! https://www.tripadvisor.com/Attraction_Review-g147347-d2083816-Reviews-Soualiga_Destinations_Boat_Tours-Philipsburg_Sint_Maarten_St_Martin_St_Maarten.html We will be going back to St. Martin in 2 weeks and trying to book with Random Wind (its a catamaran tour that got great reviews) but currently the day we are in port they do not yet have enough people booked. I am still hoping that they get more interest the day we are in port but if not we will be going out again with Capt Bob/Soualiga Destinations. https://www.tripadvisor.com/Attraction_Review-g147347-d1014743-Reviews-Random_Wind-Philipsburg_Sint_Maarten_St_Martin_St_Maarten.html
  2. We purchased it on our last cruise in September 2018. It was on the Allure 7-Day sailing. I want to say it came out on the last 2 or 3 days of sailing. It worked perfect for us as my husband and I split it. Im hoping to get another one on our upcoming sailing.
  3. I've tried emailing but I haven't heard back. Ill send another email out. I don't even need lounger I would be fine playing on the beach as I will be with my kiddos anyway. We just want to play in the water for a few hours.
  4. I checked the Splash Park out and that's so up his alley. We did something like this in Cozumel at Play Mia (he was only 2.5 at the time and he LOOOOVED it). I just emailed them to see if there are any height requirements - crossing my fingers there are not. Is the Splash Park near Palm Beach?
  5. Thanks for the heads up. We decided to do the Irie Tours so Im glad to see that you don't suggest Klein Curacao.
  6. We are sailing with Woodwind but have a few hours before and after to kill so we were thinking of just hanging ut and playing on the beach at Little Divi resort, since it right there. Does anyone know if this beach is public or would we have to purchase a day pass?
  7. Were staying for 2 nights post-cruise and have a few different AirBnB were looking at but they are all in different locations of the island. Which area of the island tends to have the best beaches?
  8. Thats probably a better idea. Im a chicken when it comes to warmth and water so I wanted to do an afternoon snorkel tour to ensure it will be super warm so I can enjoy the water, lol.
  9. We decided on it last night - go figure when I got the email back today they said they don't have enough interest but its still early so she made a note to contact me if they get more people wanting to book. It looks like an awesome excursion day and I'm so bummed. Here is to hoping more people go!!

    ABC Tours

    Plan A was Renaissance Private Island but learned we can't do Rbecause we have our kiddo with us so Plan B was De Palm Island but come to find out the aqua park/water slides will be closed for maintenance so that's out. Now I'm on to Plan C .... I am looking into the ABC Tours and hoping to get some input. It looks like they have amazing reviews over 11K with 5-stars. Im torn between the Island Ultimate Safari that is 9.5 hours or the Cave Pool & North Coast Explorer for 4 hours, has anyone done either of these tours and can give me any input? I'
  11. Last year we did the Soualiga/Capt Bob Tour and LOVED it. By fast the best excursion we had done so needless to say we were planing on doing this again when we went back to St. Martin in September. I have been looking around on Trip Advisor and stumbled upon a small-group day sail with Random Wind. It received 5 starts by all 110 reviewers - I would like to try something different but want to see if anyone has sailed with them before and their thoughts. Should I stick with what we know and what we loved = or trying something different with someone that got just as glowing reviews??

    De Palm Island

    Not sure when you are going but I saw on RCCL excursion that the waterpark is closed for maintenance from August - December 2019 (go figure because we are going in September). I did email the park directly to double check though and will let you know when I get a response back.
  13. We will be going to Aruba in September with our 5 year old son and Ive been desperately looking for an excursion that will interest him but coming up short. I have been looking into De Palm Island because he LOVES water slides and their aqua park looks like it would be a blast for little ones - except on RCCL it said that from August 12 - December their aqua park was closed for maintenance. I just emailed De Palm directly to get more information.

    De Palm Island

    This place seems like it gets hit and miss reviews. For those of you that have been there can you give me a little more insight? Is it worth it or should I keep looking for something else to do there? The entire plan in Aruba was to do the Flamingo Beach on Renaissance Private Island but I wasn't aware that it was just for guest of the hotel nor that it was an adult only thing, needless to say I'm beyond sad that we can go. We will be traveling with our 5 year old and Ive been seeing De Palm Island and thinking maybe that would be up our alley but its pricy and reviews are hit and miss. He loooooves water slides so Im sure we would spent our entire time there. Do they allow puddle jumpers on the slides? Does the island have enough to do for the 10 hours we will be in port?
  15. We are trying to do the same thing. Our ship gets in at 8am and we don't meet with Woodwind until 1145, I'm trying to figure something to do before hand but not having much luck. If i can't find anything we will just sleep in a little, have a relaxed breakfast, and maybe just hit up the beach by Windwoods pier for a little bit before we head over. Would love to hear if you find something to do though 🙂
