  1. Thank you everyone for all the good information! We can start the planning now! Clary
  2. Wow! thanks great info. I was kind out reading some of these. I did not know about the floating market. What is it. Do you remember what excursion they were. They have so many island excursions in Aruba that is hard to chose. How about the caves?
  3. I know what you mean but I also worked in insurance for many years. There is a clause you can purchase to cover you outside. But per federal regulations it has a limitations. My nephew did not cover but the embassy help with repatriation and transfer to the US. It was a mess. The hospital would not give adequate medical care until we paid them daily. It was the month from hell and our family was totally hurt financially. We had a go fund and it helped. I went on Tv to ask for help and so did my sister in Newark and in PR. My Florida congressman reached out to me and with his help they contacted the embassy and the State Department to get a US citizen safely out. It was all over the news. When he finally arrived in Newark after a week in the hospital he was out of and induce coma etc. He is doing much better. Now I know what to do when I travel. I always knew about it but never thought it could happened to my family. I always take the cruise insurance. Is on record with the cruise ship and they are very helpful.
  4. This is the first time that I go to the ABC. Can anyone share their experience and things to do? We want to see the island but no beach since we live at the beach. I am also interested in local shore excursions that is not a beach excursions. Clary
  5. Us Medical Insurance or Medicare do not cover out of the country. We always get the cruise insurance. It does pay for transporting out of the ship to the closest near port. However with recent experience with my nephew you should have an insurance that cover repatriation, which means that if you have to go to a hospital out of the country it would cover the cost of air transport to the US sometimes costly and about 70,000.00plus. United Health Care Global is an excellent choice. Just please ask the question of repatriation. The transport company does the clearance from the Embassy and State Dept for you. Our family just learned this lesson the bad way recently.

  9. We live in Tampa and thinking of doing this cruise. Can you please tell me the restaurant you are going to and how did you find out about it. Also which excursion are you taking? do they have a website Clary
  10. Just got off RCL Diamond Plus desk and the rep Frank told me that the only way I could get off the ship is if we book the rcl excursion. But I have read everywhere that they have done walking and excursions on their own, recently. :confused: :confused: Can someone help me on this. RCL excursions is a good option but they are also very pricey. Two reps said this.
  11. I just called RCL Diamond Plus desk and I was inform by the agent that we are not allow to wonder on our own or do excursions on our own. He said we have to purchase excursion through the cruise ship. Is this correct. Never heard of this. Can someone help with this
