  1. We did this excursion through Shore excursioneer a year and half ago.( Belize Shark Ray Alley and Hol Chan Marine Park Snorkel Excursion by Air) -S1345 @$154.99pp. Everything was planned perfectly by Shore excursioneer. The only part we had to take care of on our own was getting a taxi to and from the local airport. The taxi ride was about a 15-20 minute ride. The snorkeling was fantastic, the best we've ever encountered. After snorkeling we had about an hour to either have lunch or explore on our own.
  2. We had a wonderful meal at Testa's restaurant (Lobster roll) in Bar Harbor, http://www.testasbarharbor.com/ and in Newport we enjoyed a meal at The Red Parrot Restaurant. I would second going to Quincy's Market in Boston, they have quite a selection of food stands. If you like Boston Cream Pie, be sure to get the 'original' while visiting Boston.
  3. I purchased our $99 deal for our upcoming March 2018 cruise. I believe the deal went for approx. 3 weeks, possibly starting the end of Jan. to the first or second week of Feb. I'm watching for it again for our 2019 cruise. It looks like a great deal!
  4. We just got off the Regal last week and we were not allowed to use a coffee card punch for our gelato purchase. Maybe this varies from ship to ship. Hopefully it works out for your grandchildren.
  5. I grabbed the $99 deal for an upcoming cruise also. If I remember correctly, it came out in late February or early March. I'm keeping my fingers crossed it will come out again next February (or earlier), and I can grab it for the following year.
  6. Can you recommend a private tour that takes you to Peggy's Cove? Also, if we took a taxi, do you know the approx. cost? Thank you,
  7. We did this tour last Oct. 2016. You are correct that Princess stops at one winery, called Grand Pre` Winery and you get 4 or 5 small samples. We were disappointed that it was only one winery, but the tour was nice. One the way to the winery, we made one stop at a country market to stretch our legs. We made one other photo stop where we actually got to disembark the bus before making our way to Wolfville, there we had about an hour or so for lunch on our own. We did get to see the Bay of Fundy (from the bus) before and after the tides, and that was quite interesting. We spent quite a bit of time on the bus just touring. We personally like to be more active than just sitting, but if that's your thing, this would be a nice tour.
  8. We were on the Regal last week, Oct. 22-27 and my DH and I were lucky enough to have the parmesan basket with fettuccini three times as an appetizer. When I first ordered the dish, the waiter told us they were no longer available, but to our surprise, the parmesan basket came out in our order. I was a happy cruiser!:D
  9. I know some of you are using Trikes- Aruba as an excursion. I saw this coupon and I thought maybe some of you could use it. I wasn't sure how you booked the excursion, because this coupon states you have to book directly with them. http://digital.nightspublications.com/pdf/A_Offer_Trikes-Aruba.pdf http://nightspublications.com/aruba/offers/activities/10-trikes-aruba I hope the link works. Good luck.
  10. We are looking into driving to the Brooklyn Cruise Terminal for a cruise and driving there on our own. I've research to try to find recent information for parking at the terminal, but what I've found is several years old. I called the phone number, but the office isn't open until May 17th for information. Has anyone used the parking at the terminal recently that could share their price per day and experiences?
  11. Does anyone know when it's scheduled for the drydock? We'll be on it in April 2017.
  12. Thank you Karen and Sid 6169 for the websites, I'll check them out. We're looking forward to experiencing the waverunners in St. Thomas.
  13. I've been asking this question for over a year. Just last month, someone got back to me and mentioned that Emerald Beach had water sports. I specifically asked about wave runners, so I'm hoping we'll find them at this beach. We're cruising in March and plan to check it out.
