  1. We just hired a cab at the port (there were 4 adults). Our driver took us to the rum factory, then to a beach. Came back and picked us up at the appointed time and took us back to the ship. We don't recall the cost of the cab but it was reasonable. The tour of the factory was about $5 pp. We are planning to do it again in Jan.

  3. My 78 year old father and my 68 year old mother are taking their sons (40somethings) on a cruise. We're all staying in the same room. Do you think they'll...you know...? How would you feel?


    I'd buy them some champagne and get lost for the evening...after high fiving them and hoping all them genes were passed on.


    Bill Cosby once said that if you would have told him at 20 that some day he would somday lust for a 62 yr old woman he thought was hot and sexy...he would have thought you were crazy. Now he knows better :D
