  1. I have been on Contrave for 9 months and have lost 30+ lbs. I have had no side effects what so ever. I need to get serious before my cruise in December.
  2. Just got off the Caribbean on Saturday. We were at 18-19.5 knots daily. No vibration or rattling all week. Didn’t know of any possible issues, just smooth sailing.
  3. We were just at Megan’s Bay on Tuesday. We paid $16 ( for two) plus tip which was on an open air taxi bus from Best Taxi Company. We paid $8.00 ( plus $5.00 deposit) in cash only, for a lounge chair. They had no umbrellas to rent, we asked. Shade is best sitting close by the bar/restaurant. Plenty of taxi’s available when ever you decide to return. We were in a closed minivan that had little to no air conditioning returning to the ship. Not a wise choice.
  4. Not knowing where Sunset Bar is located, I’d venture to say no. There is nothing around Karakter’s, it is away from everything. You would have a long walk to the nearest anything.
  5. We made it to Karakter’s! 20 minute taxi ride from the cruise port area. Paid $20 one way for two people. The staff are very helpful and set us up with loungers and an umbrella just for the asking. Planning on lunch later in the day. Maxine comes to us on the beach to take our drink orders. Highly recommend this relaxing beach day! We are right by the airport with the planes flying overhead.
  6. We are currently on Caribe and received the medallion which was unexpected. So far all we have used it for is to unlock our door.
  7. We are headed to St. Martin next Thursday and have been reading the link below. Trusting a taxi to take us and pick us up. I’ll let you know how it was. http://karakterstmaarten.com/
  8. September 1st we’ll be on the Caribbean. I’m trying to find out if platinum and elite still receive free internet service or should I look into buying the service beforehand?
  9. I also am curious of taxi prices and how much time should we plan on traveling to and from Simpson Bay.
