    Around the Horn in 80 days.

    Looking forward, as always, to your wonderful reports Roy. Enjoy the anticipation!

    Thank-you for posting this helpful information. I checked the private islands board and found the information there very confusing as not everyone posting about HMC was actually sailing with HALand the cabana offerings were either numbered or in color. I also found the color names confusing as well for the reasons mentioned.
  3. That’s great! Nice that Hilton gave you the extra discount as well. I hope you have a nice stay there, I’ve always been curious about that property. While I’ve never used Valuetrips I have heard of them over the years and the common theme seems to be un or non responsiveness. I can’t plan a trip with that uncertainty, I want to know that I have an actual reservation the day that I make it, I don’t want to have to put more thought and effort into it than necessary. It is a vacation after all!
  4. Cold but sunny day for you guys here in Boston today. Just checked the thermometer and it’s 36 degrees out. Dress warmly, hats, gloves and sunglasses. Perfect day to got hot chocolate and walk around the city.

  6. One option would be to take the SL2 to South Station and from there catch the Red Line to Harvard Square. I'd have a mooch around there for an hour or two (the Hourly is a great restaurant serving a nice selection of local oysters). The Longfellow Museum on Brattle Street (Tory Row) is one of my favorite tours. Taking the Red Line back in to Boston you could detrain at Park Street and walk through Boston Common and the Boston Public Garden which abut the Cheers Bar, if that means anything to you. Since you enjoy walking, Beacon Hill is adjacent to the Boston Common and is quaintness squared-don’t miss Louisburg Square. I generally try and steer friends and family away from Quincy Market/Fanueil Hall as the area is usually overcrowded and screams tourist-trap. There are so many better ways to spend a day in this beautiful city.

    Equinox and the ABC's

    Thanks for your excellent review. We’re doing a similar itinerary on the Silhouette in February minus Key West. I’m trying to decide what to do in Curaçao, the last time, we took a ship sponsored tour to Blue Bay Resort and we really enjoyed the snorkeling there. Are the roads easy to navigate in Curaçao?
  8. Following along. Safe travels and bon voyage! [emoji927][emoji924][emoji1278] Sent from my iPad using Forums

  10. I admire all of the effort that you’re putting into this thread. It’s my first time following your reports. I’ll be interested in finding out what you guys do in the ABC’s as we’ll be there in February. Bon voyage! [emoji568] Sent from my iPad using Forums
