  1. Heard from a cruise line agent today that some islands are not allowing passengers off the ship, regardless of vaccination status, unless you are on a cruise line excursion. He said that status can change. Of course I'm thinking that's a great ploy to get someone to book via the cruise line, but am wondering if anyone knows if St, Thomas is such an island that has done this since Covid has been an issue? I love to do my own thing on a cruise, but also don't want to be stuck on the ship either. Any insight on this?

  5. Do you have a contact for Allan?
  6. Looking for a recommendation for a private tour company on Dominica for March 2022. Bumpiing Tours seems to be out of business. Pepper tours also doesn't have a working website. I'm assuming they are now out of business. Does anyone know of a reputable private tour that is still in business without having to use the cruise line?
  7. Looking for a tour for March 2022 and the above web address is not working. Bumpiing tours also doesn't seem to be in business anymore either.
  8. I tried twice to email Levi but both times the email was undeliverable. Website not found. Wondering if he's out of business.
  9. I've Googled Bumpiing Tours & tried to email that was provided on this thread. Email was returned, and no website found. Might be out of business.
  10. Would love a locals advice for some must EATS in Singapore and places! I've heard Chili Crab is one, but where? Any other must eats in Singapore you recommend? What's the best way to get around Singapore?
  11. My husband & I will be on a Costa Cruise this February. A couple of stops are in Thailand & Malaysia. After reading and reading on this forum, I've located an independent group for Kuala Lumpur called Kuala Lumpur Travel Tours. They also have a tour in Penang I'm interested in. Has anyone used them on a cruise and how reliable are they getting you back to the ship on time. Also, how interesting was the tour(s) itself? Secondly, I am interested in an independent tour in Phuket to the Phi Phi island & Phang Nga Bay. Currently have no independent leads on these tours. Any leads for tours of this area would be appreciated. We will also be stopping in Laem Chabang (port for Bangkok), & Ko Samui. Would love to hang out at the beach on Ko Samui. But we have an overnight in Laem Chabang, and really have no idea on what to see and do in Bangkok. Such a large city it's a bit overwhelming to narrow it down. Ideas, independent tour references here as well would be appreciated. Thank you in advance!
  12. Thank you for the suggestions! We're going to see Alcatraz for sure. Depending on how the parents are feeling, hopefully we can do a hop on hop off bus and see more of the city. Looking forward to eating in SF too!!! Going to the fortune cookie factory sounds interesting! Great suggestions from everyone!
  13. I've been reading that Costa can be "chartered" by another company during certain sailings. Could someone explain what this means, I've never heard of this before. What differences would you notice as a guest, and how do I figure out if my sailing is "chartered" by a different company? TY
  14. The cruise we're taking is Feb 4th B2B, 14-days. Are we on the same ship?
