  1. We were disappointed to see Escargot was not offered on our 10-day Southern Caribbean cruise (Koningsdam) in March. We asked and were told the cruise before us didn’t have any either. We assumed it was just a temporary supply issue.
  2. Yes it has wifi. They’ll give you a code if you buy food/drink. Some areas were stronger than others.
  3. We enjoyed Irie tours West tour. It was a good way to hop around the island and you had the choice of what you wanted to do at each stop. We snorkelled at each stop, but some people laid on the beach, some swam. We had our own gear, though they did provide masks and snorkels, but I don’t think they had fins. If sitting still is an issue for your son, he may find it to be a long day riding around on the bus, but each stop is a little different and interesting. At one stop you will likely have a chance to see and/or swim with turtles, which he may enjoy?
  4. Same for us. I didn’t find it crowded at all, in the water or on the boat.
  5. Check our Irie Tours. We really enjoyed the tour. You meet the tour right outside the port, very easy and close. Minimal walking if you choose, but you can explore at each stop. We snorkelled at each place, some people relaxed on the beach, to each their own. There is some info and comments on the link below. https://boards.cruisecritic.com/topic/2548747-irie-tours-in-curaçaocarnival-horizon-next-april/
  6. Only thing we had was a Pina Colada at the swim up bar, iirc it was about $6.
  7. They had rash guard tops available and I think shorty wet suits as well. I had my own rash guard top and found the water to be quite comfortable. A couple people said they found it cold, but overall didn’t see anyone having issues with the temperature.
  8. Same as the poster above. We were on the longer tour it was great!
  9. Nice review! We had very similar experience in early March when we were there. We found them to be fantastic. Great crew, great weather, great variety of fish to see and a fantastic meal on the way back. Would go with them again next time we are down there.
  10. Riverside was great. We stayed there a few nights back in Feb before our cruise. Nice location, tons of great restaurants, or easily hop the bus to the beach. Pool area was good too.
  11. Agree with a poster way up above. Best bet for seeing an orca in the wild will be on a tour out of Victoria or Vancouver/Steveston. Being a local, I have been on both numerous times and have been 100% on sightings. On our Alaska cruises we have seen orca from the ship many times, but whale watching tours have only seen them once (way off in the distance) . Humpbacks are likely what you will see on an Alaska whale watch tour. Good luck in your quest to see an orca, they are amazing to view in the wild!
  12. Another vote for woodwind! We had a wonderful time with them in Feb. The great organization of skill/experience levels into groups made it nice for everyone. The food provided was excellent as well.
  13. I wonder if they are talking about the little part that goes under the bridges between the larger sections of the pool?
  14. We booked through the ship to use some OBC, but ended up with Chukka. Was a good snorkel tour, ending with the rays.
