  1. https://thecruisestoponline.com/ This place is across the street from the port, and their website says that they will store luggage for $5 per piece. The Bishop's Palace is a beautiful old home you can tour, but it would be a little bit far to walk. https://www.galvestonhistory.org/sites/1892-bishops-palace The Galveston Railroad Museum and the Ocean Star offshore drilling museum would both be within walking distance of the luggage storage place.
  2. If you are in relatively decent shape and like to be in the water, I would recommend the Roseau Valley Treasures tour with Bumpiing Tours. I've done it twice and loved it. I think their website is down right now, but here is a link to their review page. https://www.tripadvisor.com/Attraction_Review-g147282-d1545060-Reviews-Bumpiing_Tours-Roseau_Saint_George_Parish_Dominica.html
  3. I've been cave tubing three times through this company: https://cavetubing.bz/cruise They have a $50 special that includes transport, guide, equipment, and lunch after tubing. We have always had a great time. I will say if anyone in your party is mobility limited, it is a little bit of a walk from the entrance of the cave tubing park to the river entry.
  4. I get the wall stickers from Dollar Tree. They have several different patterns, and easily peel back off of the door without leaving residue. I have even saved the waxed paper that they came on and restuck the sticker on it to use on another cruise.
  5. There were so many tragic things that many of the indigenous peoples experienced at the hands of the government. As I have gotten older, I have become so much more aware of how unfairly the tribes were treated. Being born and raised in Oklahoma, I have come to realize how many things I learned in school were really "white" washed. I never even heard of the Tulsa Race Massacre until I was in my twenties, and I was raised less than 50 miles from where it occurred. I live less than 30 miles from the tribal headquarters of the Cherokees, and I really didn't understand the heartbreak of the Trail of Tears until a few years ago. I hope you really enjoy the books. So glad I could recommend them.
  6. Have you tried the Prey (Lucas Davenport) series by John Sandford? I think there are a little over 30 novels so far in the series. If you are interested in learning a little more about the Navajo tribe, the Leaphorn and Chee mysteries by Tony Hillerman are good. I like them because they are well written mysteries, but they also teach you quite a bit about the cultures of the Navajo tribe and other tribes that surround the Navajo reservation such as the Hopi and Zuni.
  7. I always bring a 12 pack on the ship with me. Don't want to be without my DP!
  8. Were you docked at Mahogany Bay? If so, I think most of the independent tour operators have to meet their clients a little ways up the hill outside the port gates.
  9. Best wishes to Steve and his team. Glad that the Tropicante will still be around in some form or fashion.
  10. I've stayed in the Super 8 in the Webster/NASA area. It's only about 30 miles from the cruise terminal and only about 4 hours from Dallas/Fort Worth. It would get you through Houston while the traffic is light on Christmas night, which is a big plus in my book (I hate Houston traffic). It's nothing fancy, but in my experience it has been clean and really affordable.
  11. I have used this email address to reach him in the past. I don't know if it will still work or not, but I'm happy to share it: levibaron@bumpiingtours.com
  12. You can also download the Google map for the island to your phone before you leave home. If you download and save it on your phone, you can use it even with your phone in airplane mode.
  13. I stayed in an Airbnb in Loiza (not too far from the San Juan airport) and had no trouble. We had a car to get around with, so if you plan on using Uber to get around, you may want something closer to the city center. With Airbnb, you can generally get more space and sometimes a kitchen or laundry, and it is often less than the price for a hotel. I usually scan the reviews for each property on Airbnb to make sure that the experiences of their past guests have been pleasant.
  14. Go visit the Cozumel Humane Society for an afternoon. I know how much Sakari likes dogs. They are always happy to have visitor volunteers to help socialize or walk the animals. I've visited here twice during Cozumel port days, and the staff here are awesome. https://en.humanecozumel.org/voluntariado
  15. Mitsugirly, I just wanted to say thank you so much for all the time and effort you put into your reviews and trip reports. I find myself excited when the next day of a report gets posted. I've had 6 trips cancelled since this pandemic began, but at least i get to travel vicariously through you and your family. Maybe one day, we will actually get to cruise together in person. Keep up the good work!
