  1. Thanks for the response and the map, but not sure why it's an "of course" when so many port towns are not that easily walkable from the dock.... and while I'm not disabled per se, I have a tricky back which makes extensive walking challenging.
  2. I wrote to them on the 2nd and haven't heard back...is that normal and I should be patient? We arrive on St. Croix in April...
  3. " Hi folks my husband and I are on the Celebrity Silhouette going on the fabulous Two Islands One Paradise tour of both St Kitts and Nevis on 04/14/20 ($100pp) cash, and need to meet the minimum requirement of 6 people that enables this tour to go and so invite other cruise ship passengers who are looking for something... special, that gives a fantastic tour experience of both islands to join us. This tour will cover some of the key historical and scenic locations on both islands .Duration: up to 7+ hours with lunch at the sought after TurtleTime beach restaurant and bar on Nevis. Offering a fusion of Caribbean/International and Asian cuisine. We want to keep the group small so it the first 3 couple only to confirm their booking We look forward to hearing from interested parties. (OK, I didn't write that - it was composed by the Tour Operator 😉 but you get the idea- any takers?)
  4. None of the excursions listed for this port are really grabbing us - it it possible to simply walk into town from the cruise ship dock, walk around town and have a nice lunch (preferably with an ocean view)?
  5. What would be your top three "must sees"?

    How far is that from the port, and how would one get there (roughly 🙂) from the port? Thanks in advance!
  7. Quite a few of the ship's excursions include a stop at the Hato Caves - are they worth seeing, or no big deal? Can't say I've been in a lot of caves - oh, except for cave tubing in Belize - awesome! so do we make a point to see the Hato Caves? Thanks!
  8. We're on a Panama Canal cruise next month, and it seems like if you go to Nicaragua, you need to look at volcanos. We've narrowed it down to three excursions - all ship-led due to this being a tendered port. Here are our choices: Granada, Masaya Market & Volcano, Lunch & Shopping Nature Experience, Masaya Volcano, Apoyo Lagoon and Granada Masaya Volcano & Hacienda Los Altos Cultural Experience Has anyone done any of these? Yea or Nay? Thanks! Alexa and Laurence
  9. We're on a Panama Canal cruise in the spring which stops in Nicaragua - the US State Department lists Nicaragua at a level 3 warning (out of 4, 4 being Do Not Travel) - Reconsider Travel to Nicaragua, due to crime, civil unrest, etc. Do we think they'll keep San Juan Del Sur on the itinerary for the forseeable future?
  10. On it too...two new ports for me versus four new ones with the old itinerary...but hard to be tooooo disappointed. Just hope the people on the Saints stay safe and Isaac isn't as bad as feared.

    Caribbean Princess on right now, Captain announced a complete overhaul of our itinerary after tomorrow due to Isaac. No longer going to the Saints. Instead diverted to San Juan, Grand Turk and Nassau. My first diversion in 5 summer Caribbean cruises so can't be too crabby. Just hope everyone on those gorgeous islands stays safe.
  12. La Plage is now known as Pearl Beach, apparently...looks like a nice place to have breakfast when our excursion tender lands and there isn't anything open at 9AM in St. Barths... Should we plan on taking a taxi?

    Is It Worth It?

    I've been to St. Maarten twice, and the first time I took an amazing, all day tour with Noel Tours, so I feel like I saw that island pretty well (and loved it) - if you have never been to either, I would start with St. Maarten. It's only because I've already been that I'm going to St. Barts on my upcoming cruise, and our shore excursion is a pretty whirlwind four hours as well. I get the feeling I'll be window shopping and then having a drink at a beachside cafe, but my bucketlist is to visit every Caribbean island so gotta do it!
