    chicos paradise

    we're taking a family cruise next month (mixed ages) 6 people want to go to Chicos Paradise~~should we rent cars or is there a van service or taxi we can get outside the pier? How about the return, is it difficult to find transportation back to town?
  2. just off back2back on the Grand ~~the ship and crew were delightful and the food as good as anything we've had on any of our 20 plus Princess cruises~~princess better hang on to this chef~~given your options I'd pick The Grand in a heartbeat!!

    ocean princess questions

    Have done 15 Princess cruises but first time on one of the "little girls" I have heard that the beds in the balcony cabins are closer to the floor and it is hard to slide suitcases under them. If true is there ample close space for 4 suitcases? Also with no Skywalkers does Princess have space they use for the platinum/elite cocktail area? thanx
  8. we want to cab it over to Marigot for a little shopping for the ladies and a few beers or drinks for the guys~~any suggestions for a people watching spot? Thanx

    Princess Survey

    The way Princess crunches their numbers, they know exactly what you spent on your cruise !!~~Absolutely no need for such a detailed survey~~I also bailed on it
  13. Does Avis have a shuttle from the pier on these islands? If not, are there cabs to get you there and is it far to the rental offices? Thanks
