  1. I am cruising on Princess, in December, to the Caribbean and have hired a private tour company in a couple ports - specifically in Dominican Republic and St. Kitts and am wondering if the scheduled arrival time posted by Princess will be the same time as the Island time. I saw several random posts on Cruise Critic re: tour guides which said, when booking private tours, be sure you are going by Island time, which can differ from the ship's time. I always thought if the ship said we would be docking in Amber Cove, Dominican Republic at 9 a.m., that would be the exact time in D.R. Same with St. Kitts - we are scheduled to dock at 9 a.m. - and have booked a guided tour @ 9:45 . Am I correct in assuming that the ship time for docking in these ports is the same as Island time?? tyia
  2. Thank you for the info! Am very glad we booked him; loves that he lets you customize it, as most private vendors do; looking forward to his tour.
  3. Can anyone tell me how you pay Royston? We are currently emailing back and forth and I believe we have him booked for December when we will be in St. Kitts. I was just wondering if, in the past, you pay him up front at the time of booking or you pay him on the day of the tour??
  4. I will also be in San Juan the first week in December - everyone seems to hang around and do walking in Old San Juan -? Does it have a lot of history/things to see or just a lot of shops. I would like to combine some sort of van tour to take us to interesting sights and then maybe a few hours walking around Old San Juan. Is this doable? Any suggestions what not to miss seeing in this area??
  5. Thank you very much for the information - appreciate it!
  6. I wish you (taegan) had gotten a response to your question as I would have liked to have known which "private driver" they hired in Amber Cove. I will be on a cruise next month, stopping in Amber Cove and would very much like some recommendation on what to see and do - and/or companies that do excursions (do not want to do ship excursions).
