  1. Hi, We will be in great stirrup cay next week and wondered whether there were sun umbrellas to hire or any shade anywhere. Is there a certain better spot on the island to head for if you need shade. Grateful for any info in advance has we havent been before and we are cruising with NCL and the only options to pre book on the excursions are villas or cabanas at mega bucks.4
  2. I read in cruise critic news that Carnival Cruise line is resuming visiting Freeport from Friday 11th October, when are Norwegian going to return. Our visit to Freeport has been replaced with a sea day on our cruise at the end of October, we would far rather go to Freeport and boost the local economy, which I am sure is in need of the tourists return
  3. We are booked on the Norwegian Sun sailing 26th October 2019 which was due to call at Grand Bahama Island. Whilst we have not received any formal notification of NCL yet, but have noticed that Grand Bahama has now been taken off our itinerary and been replaced by a day at sea. We had been expecting it, but still sad. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Bahamians.
  4. Does anyone know what cocktails and wine are included. I was going to take the premium package as one of our free at sea , but appears the only thing not really included is water, so probably don’t need it, perfectly happy with standard spirits, but like a Pinot with dinner and the occasional martini. Any help appreciated

    Pleased our review helped you, Michelle and co were brilliant and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them
  6. Don't book it, it is dreadful, the worst excursion we have ever been on. I've copied my posting of the Costa Maya Beach break. Do not book the Costa maya beach break with royal carribean, we were there today and it is quite honestly the worst excursion we have ever done in thirty odd cruises. The whole place is made of shipping containers, toilets, bar, food service area. The beach itself is ok, but you cannot walk in the sea, it is rocky and as the water is s murky brown for the first few metres you cannot see where to stand. If you just want to sit on the beach and drink out of small plastic cups, this is for you. Otherwise avoid, we set off at 10 am and we’re waiting for taxi back to ship at 1pm, 20 minutes wait. We really tried to make the best of it as it was our last beach day, but couldn’t get in the sea, so rather than waste the day went back to the ship. There was no pool, although I thought I had read there was when booking, the beach was called bamba beach
  7. we were well past the light house about 15 minute drive past. Can’t be more specific as we were on the party bus with blocked out sides so going couldn’t tell where we were heading, but saw the light house on the way back, tour was no cm05, We asked several times whether we were in the right place as we wouldn’t book a party bus, prefer the quiet beach life

  9. We are in St Maarten on the Adventurer of the Seas in October. We are thinking of touring the island in the morning and going to the beach in the afternoon. What are the must see things to tell the driver we want to see? Thanks
  10. I emailed divi resort as we’ll be there at the end of October and got the following response: We do not charge a fee for day use at Divi Little Bay Beach Resort. The beach is open to public access as well as the restaurants and water sports department. The beach chairs and umbrellas are available for rent daily at the activities hut. The cost is $5.00 for each item. Only guests staying at the resort are allowed to use the pools and hot tubs. Please be sure to "check-in" with the Front Desk upon arrival at the resort.

  12. Well we’ve booked the silver seas in Fort Lauderdale, location looks superb. Will let you know on our return what we thought of it. Thanks everyone for your help Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  13. Thanks for info, Fort Lauderdale sounds more our kind of thing, I’ll have to go back to the drawing board Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  14. I’ve put on hold Dover House at delray beach as it looks to be on the beach and good restaurants etc within walking distance, have you been to delray? Or should we go for Fort Lauderdale, bit confused because resorts in Orlando we have stayed at previously are all really good, but all we he beach resorts seem to have loads of negatives on tripadvisor .
