  1. I don't look at it in terms of 5-6 alcohol drinks a day. If you were going to get the refreshment package anyway, what is that difference if you were then going to purchase drinks on top? My deluxe package is only $24 more than the refreshment. That's 2 drinks. I can easily drink an average of 2-3 drinks a day and have it be worth my piece of mind and budget to know I don't have to track or worry about the bill at the end.
  2. we have $20 for refreshment and $44 for deluxe, which is the same price that shows today. Refreshment had gone back up to $26 for awhile.
  3. Thanks for the recommendations. :) We have been here several times with Carnival, and they use Iyanola. Each time we have done Superman's Flight, plus one of the other sites either in front of Anse Chastanet, or on the other side of the pitons. The boat is usually never more than 6-8 divers. That's why I was looking to see who the operator was. I booked with the ship, because I got a great price with the black Friday sale last year. But it's easy enough to change. I'm going to check out these other ops.
  4. I'm glad to see your great review of VIP Diving. This is who we have booked our dives with next month. I was a little nervous about their cancellation policy - but I completely understand why they do this. I'm just so excited that its finally getting close. Our first time in Bonaire and Curacao. We are also diving St Lucia. Can't get here soon enough to get out of this cold :)
  5. Hi, does anyone know which dive op Royal uses in St Lucia? I can usually find this info out easy enough, but have not yet been able to determine this one. TIA!
  6. If I've flown in and don't have a car, I go straight to the ship upon checkout from the hotel. There's not much to do with luggage and no car. If I'm going to sit around, I'd rather do it on ship where I know if I fall asleep in the sun I won't miss the ship. If I'm driving to port, I will time it just a bit later. I don't like waiting too long. I can be responsible for my own timetable, but not for those other drivers and construction workers etc that delay my trip 🙂
  7. I was just planning on grabbing the menu and working my way through everything on it, plus whatever signature drinks that particular bartender might have. That lavender daiquiri sounds interesting. Don't think I've ever had one of those.
  8. We stay in the Rocky Point area - Hampton Inn usually. Free airport shuttle, $10 to port, Bahama Breeze right across the parking lot.
  9. I know this is older, but for future searchers- We did the Turneffe Atoll excursion off Carnival Magic in Nov. 2017 The dive op used is Aqua Scuba based in San Pedro. They picked up us at the ship and it was about an hour boat ride to the dive site. Of course this varies for each cruise, but we had 13 divers and 3 DMs, a captain and a deck hand. There were 2 groups of 6 and the one guy who had arranged for his own DM. We brought our own gear, but the rental gear looked like it was in good shape, the boat was keep tidy and there was plenty of room. We had fruit and water during the SI, and a Belizean lunch of chicken, rice and beans and pasta salad after. The diving was okay. We didn't see anything spectacular, but they were nice dives. Best dives we've ever done in Belize ( because they are the only ones LOL)
  10. We dove through Carnival in Belize at the end of November 2017 and the operator used was Aqua Scuba, out of San Pedro. We did the Turneffe Atoll dive excursion. I have noticed that Royal Caribbean doesn't have dive excursions in places where Carnival does and vice versa, I guess it depends whoever gets the contract where there are limited ops willing to do it.
