  1. We just had a fantastic day in Curacao thanks to Celestino and Advance Car Rental. Got off the ship by 8:30 and the only difficulty we experienced all day was finding the meeting point. Everyone at the port was more than willing to give us directions to meet Celestino. We had a Hyundai that was clean and in great shape. The GPS had every point preprogrammed on it that we wanted to see. We headed straight out to the Synagogue, then on to Hato Caves, then went to Playa Grandi and swam with the turtles (bring some money to tip the man feeding the turtles), then snorkeling at Grote Knip - absolutely beautiful beach. We made it back to the pier at 4:10 - Celestino was there waiting for us. Highly recommend this company. Reba
  2. We have booked many tours through shoreexcursionsgroup.com in the past. They have been a very reputable company. We have spoken to them this morning and they will be refunding our money. The problem was not with them but with Blue Water Safaris. Shoreexcursionsgroup.com is trying to contact them on our behalf to find out what happened and now they are not even answering their phone!!!
  3. I would never recommend Blue Water Safaris. Through Shoreexcursionsgroup.com we booked a tour called Nevis Plantation and Beach - riding on a catamaran to Nevis, tour, lounch and beach and then return to St. Kitts. We were scheduled for 9am. Got to the port at 8:45, another couple showed up also with a confirmation for a 9am tour. At 9am we called Blue Water and a lady informed us they had no such tour, only a 10:30 tour. We are on a cruise with limited time and told the lady we expected a 9am tour. We had confirmations from her company as to date and time. She said she would refund our money and hung up on us. My husband called back and she promptly hung up again!!! I would never recommend this company!!!!
  4. In St. Kitts right now. Had a 9am tour with Blue Water Safari scheduled to Nevis. Got there at 8:45. Another couple showed up also for this tour. At 9am we called the local representative. She said there was no 9am tour but another one scheduled for 10:30. Clear as could be on our paperwork we had a 9am tour. She ended up hanging up on my husband! We booked this through Shoreexursionsgroup.com. We called their number and only got voice messaging and no return call yet. So disappointed in this company!!!

    Sandals Day Pass Info

    Someone else we spoke with told us to call the day before if any day passes are available. Not sure if anyone at Sandals Antigua knows what is going on!

    Sandals Day Pass Info

    I finally got a response and they told me the same thing-no day passes given out!! I guess we will also be taking a cab to Sneaky Pete's beach, which is a questionable destination. Last time we were there he was closed up and no one knew whether he was going to reopen or not. Captain Tony's is next door and they also have chairs - so we will be somewhere on the beach.

    Day in Martinique

    Did you use a specific tour to the beach?
  8. It has been many years since we were in Martinique and have a few questions for those who have been there recently. 1. Are there any relatively nice beaches close to the Port? We would prefer not having to take a ferry or traveling an hour by taxi. 2. Are there any nice hotels that we could get a day pass for? Or just pay for the cost of the chairs? 3. Any nice restaurant that we could walk to - or short taxi ride to- for lunch? Thanks for the information, Reba

    Sandals Day Pass Info

    Thanks for the information. I will send an e-mail off right away. I also sent an email to: www. sandals.com/grande-antigua - just an address I picked up off their website. Hopefully someone will respond. Reba

    Sandals Day Pass Info

    I just did an online chat with someone concerning the day pass for Sandals Grande Antigua and she informed me to call the day before to book the day pass. Since we are cruising this can be difficult. I will try emailing the resort now and see what kind of response I get, if any! Reba
  11. Looking at the deck plans on the Epic - cabin 17002 looks so much smaller than the other cabins in this category. Cabins 17006, 08, 09, and 11 look bigger. Has anyone stayed in 17002? Curious how it compares to the other cabins. Thanks for the information.
