  1. Just returned from tortola I was able to book with sensations ferry for 40 bucks round trip including the ride to and from baths. The ferry was very clean workers were nice  they gave free waters and ferry had wifi Virgin Gorda was absolutely beautiful and should not be missed highlight of my trip devils Bay and baths are stunning the hike wasn't horrible it was 3 bucks to get into baths they had plenty of bathrooms foot washers and bar restaurant on the top. Don't pay what the cruise ship wants for my trip it was 119 per person lol I had 5 people all in for 200 flat rather than 600 for the cruise excursion. Pro tip lol go through the booking process online don't look at daily times they setup excursions outside of those time for us cruisers it was 830 am to 130 pm more than enough time if you looked online at the dailys nothing showed those times. Hope this helps as these forums have died down alot not much current info on them

  2. Follow up PBI was the way to go car service was great ended up being picked up by brand new Lincolnon navigator dropped right at the gate. Easy tsa nice airport way way way less chaotic than Fll and Mia . PS Uber was 250 for the same exact ride not including tip I pre arranged for 175 tip included surge pricing is highway robbery so be aware that it can get pretty expensive.

  3. Ok so here is the follow up. I had car deliver to Port no need to go to airport its pretty much a waste of money just set it up with car rental agency. The anally pools were easy to get to just drive to cambria go towards guard tower they will show you where the path is I parked and made my way there so don't let the naysayers say it can't be done...it can. Just use common sense. That being said I was also able to get to point Udall which does have a very nice view but quite honestly not much going on there they took all the lettering off stating it was the Eastern most point of the USA so that was disappointing. The array is in some random area while you are making your way to point Udall again nothing there just a fenced area and the array pretty cool to see but not something I would go out of my way for. The beaches were nice I was able to stop on the road a couple of time to check them out I also was able to hit Rainbow Beach at the end of the day again a standard beach. Christestead boardwalk was basically closed as this is the off season so don't waste your time Goin unless in season parking in the lot was 1 dollar and hour but since I wasn't a local I paid 2 lol. All in all a nice place but as far as USVI goes St Thomas hands down has more going on. Also for those who are wondering verizon phone service was in network so I had cell service the whole time. Best of luck to all that go at least this info is current for 2023.

  4. I am also coming in august 15th on adventure of the seas can you share any info you might have on  the annaly pools? can it be done from pier? I satrted a post but no one seems to have any info.Thank you.

  5. Ok thank you I am flying in from NY and it was considerable cheaper and way better times than newark,jfk,lga swf which are all close to me. Additionally the 52 min drive is not bad considering mia to fla is about 40 mins it is a viable option if you are coming from NYC area prices to fly in are nearly half. Fyi renting a car at pbi and dropping it off at fll is about 90 bucks not bad for 5 people and luggage and having the flexibility to shop before I leave the next day. I may just rent again and do reverse trip dropping car off the same day once I get back. Like I said just seeing what others may have done. For those that will read this post I will follow up and give you my outcome upon my return.

  6. Hello didnt see much about West Palm beach airport here but I got an incredible deal with perfect times so looking for some insight if anyone else has done this and what they did. I have found car services for my party of 5 with luggage so I do have something in the pipe but figured I see what else was out there. I dont see many people flying into this airprt is there something I am missing? Thanks in advance.

  7. Hello All,

    Wondering who has done this without the ship excursion (since mine is sold out ). Any insight into how I would go about doing this on my own or any tips 

    from others that have done it. I have checked trip advisor but prices seem very expensive for my party of five. Thanks in a advance.

  8. Hello I will do what most do not do here and that is a follow up.  My ship docked with all other 8 ships I carried my own luggage walked to the customs cameras (which make the debarkation process really quick) out to taxi spot got a van taxi for 5 of us for 27 plus tip went through check in process at MIA and security and was sitting by 835 ish all in. I walked off ship at 710- 715 ish. If you are focused and just stay on task this can be achieved by anyone. Happy travels to everyone I am off to plan my next trip.

  9. This actually the second time JETBLUE did this to me on this trip I initially had a flight out of fll at 1150 they cancelled the flight then moved it to 345 pm. I asked them to move me to mia which is closer but they have since moved the flight up again crunching the time I have alloted to get out of POM to MIA. i could on wish for a delay at this time lol it would help my cause 

  10. Hello My flight time has once again been changed I currently have a 1025 am flight leaving MIA on Saturday july 23rd I have seen that there is 5 ships disembarking that morning my time on my itinerary says 8 am what is the earliest anyone has been able to disembark recently I.e. 2022 from a carnival ship if I carry my own bags off. I have never been to Mia so I am flying blind with that process any help would be appreciated 

  11.  I am sure this has been discussed at nauseum but I just got screwed by JETBLUE. So here is the story I am cruising on july 17th its been a few  years and I know stuff has changed a lot (e.g no shuttles from car rentals or certain hotels) I was flying in and out of fla had great times 1150 flight home everything looked good had transportation all setup well that was all blown to hell by JetBlue they adjusted my fight to 4ish which really screws things up on the way home so I asked for a flight out of MIA the only flight I could get to Newark NJ was 10 35am on my return the 23rd I looked an there seems to be 5 ships coming in that morning I am doing the walk off as early as I can. Is there any current insight one could provide about getting to MIA from POM efficiently with that many ships? Any tips for transportation would be greatly appreciated. I always hear UBER/LYFT but I am sure surge pricing and availability will be limited. Is a taxi the best method or is there a more efficient manner I am not thinking of? I am traveling with 4 others so a total of 5.  I have never flown out of MIA so its all foreign to me and I don't want to be stressing the whole time for the return trip home. I am figuring this will be tight but can be done. Thanks in advance. 

  12. Hello all just need some insight to see if this is a tangible work around for my situation. I am flying into FLL in July and sailing out of POM the next day. I have 5 in my party plus luggage. I see pricing for UBer xl run about 100 plus going to miami from FLL some here have said less but what I have been reading recently doesn't align with that. Would just one xl even handle 5 people plus luggage?  As far as Brightline scenario I would get a free shuttle to their station from FLL then take their train to downtown miami and then be provided a ride within a 5-mile radius of that stop? is this correct and has this been done recently by anyone who can confirm. Any help would be greatly appreciated this will be my first time not renting a car and driving down so its all new to me.

  13. Just a follow up my credit card dispute is now permanent. I spoke with CC rep at length about the situation he told me that he has been processing a ton of these claims. He said he has yet see a cruise company respond back to chargeback. I wonder how all these chargebacks are going to effect the credit card industry going forward in respects to covering claims like this. all the best to everyone trying to get your money back. MSC unfortunately for them they are off the table for me in the future unless its a gift of course.
