  1. Has anyone done the snorkel tours offered at Upachaya resort? The snorkel tour includes pick up at the cruise port, 2 snorkel stops on a pontoon boat from the property, lunch and transport back to the cruise port. I liked that the numbers are kept small and it sounds like there is good snorkeling with no crowds from the reviews on TA. We are on Harmony arriving in November ( which I understand is rainy season). Any input would be great. TIA.
  2. [ Thanks so much. Glad you enjoyed. Yea, I'm pretty sure that the larger class ships would be excellent for entertainment and activities. I've heard all about them. Some day I'll get on one. I guarantee once Sakari sees the aqua show on Oasis class she will want to be in the show when she grows up!
  3. Yes, you will see the hippie guy on Railroad Alaska. He has a huge greenhouse for growing food ( and who knows what else-lol) and there was a segment on him installing a wooden barrel hot tub for keeping fish to use as fertilizer for the crops. He also helped another lady homesteader build a line/pulley to get water to her house. If you watch the show, I met Animal two years ago taking the train to Seward to board Radiance. He was working as a conductor. My one brush with a celebrity! ------Nancy
  4. I agree with you about the desserts- they LOOK fabulous but are tasteless. The exceptions are the key line tart and the chocolate souffe with the expresso sauce. The best dessert I've ever had was the birthday cake my TA arranged for me- that was sooooooo yummy!
  5. The hippie guy in the back of the pick up I recognize from the Railroad Alaska tv show. He's quite the character. I love Talkeetna- we were there on a Sunday when there is a small farmer's type of market with lots of local artists selling their work. Got a puffin carving.
  6. We did this itinerary in January on Serenade. St. Lucia is gorgeous! We used Spencer Ambrose Tours and did the Jalousie/Sugar Beach break. You pick up their boat at the dock, they do a drop off at the Sugar Beach, provide lunch and snorkeling equipment. There is a snorkeling park there at the beach. The Sugar Beach resort is there as well- beautiful posh resort with the gorgeous view of the Pitons. Afterwards you get a tour of the island by water on the way back to port. Definitely would do it again.
  7. We are on the 10/4 NE/Canada cruise. Still no reservations open for the shows. I called Royal to check that I hadn't missed it , and the agent said it will open up anytime between 60-90 days prior to sailing. He confirmed the show reservations hadn't been loaded yet.
