  1. We've sailed twice in the last two years out of San Juan - both times they didn't start accepting luggage until about 10:15 and you have to line up to drop your luggage off with the porters. We arrived about 10 am and waited in line both times. I don't know if it's always that way, but was our experience the last two cruises.
  2. I've always used the pre-concierge e-mail address to book NCL excursions in the past. When I tried for our cruise last December they told me they didn't have access to book shore excursions. I found it interesting that the letter that came with the luggage tags said to contact them to book excursions. Not sure if it's something they don't do any more or the guy who answered the e-mail just didn't want to be bothered.
  3. Update: After following St. John Bracelet Co on Facebook we decided to go with them. Took a taxi from Havensight to Red Hook and caught the 9 am ferry across. Found just what I wanted at St. John Bracelet Co. - purchased my yellow gold bracelet and husband bought a silver and gold hook bracelet. They didn't have his in stock so he had to wait for them to make it and ship it to us. We are very pleased with our experience with them and the jewelry we purchased. I recommend them highly.
  4. We were on the Dawn over Christmas. Cagney's had the ribeye on the menu, but didn't have any on board. We ate there 3 times and each time they told us the ribeye wasn't available. We thought it was odd. (once was our Platinum meal, twice with the SDP) It's been my husbands go-to meal in the past.
  5. Exactly!!! We've been on a lot of cruises and Jamaica was the worst. The drug dealers we encountered didn't take a polite "No, thank you." We had the same problem both times we ported in Jamaica. My boss was told it wasn't safe to leave the resort she booked for their honeymoon. I'll take Nassau any day.
  6. Hi Tampafish, We were just looking at this hotel, but not sure since it doesn't have air conditioning. Was that a problem in the summer?
  7. Also, if you have the "Do Not Disturb" on when they bring the snacks they won't want to bother you and won't leave any snacks. I always suspect this is the case when someone claims their butler never brought any snacks. Honestly, we find it fun to see what they are bringing that day - it's a surprise and there's always something we'll eat. Some days are better than others.
  8. We disembarked on Sunday (and sailed last December) - both times at PanAmerican Pier. The taxi drivers will know where to go.
  9. I hope my comment wasn’t misunderstood. I was talking about my experience with a different Concierge that now seems to move around the bigger ships with rave reviews. The two we’ve had on the Dawn were great.
  10. Our last two cruises have been on the Dawn. We've had Roel and Leah as Concierge - anyone know if he's still on for Dec. 23rd? Honestly, we didn't have a problem with either, but we pretty much do everything ourselves. They were both friendly. You never know about Concierges - the worst one we ever had is a favorite of many here on CC, but he was not willing to help us with the one dinner reservation I asked for - flat out lied and said there were no openings when we asked him at breakfast. (this was pre-dining perk, so specialty restaurants weren't as busy and the board showed "green") - at 8 am we walked down to the atrium and made our own reservation. He didn't even try. Maybe he wasn't feeling well, maybe he had bad news from home, because everyone else raves about him.
  11. Thanks blue_water - St. John Bracelet has the exact bracelet I want, maybe it was just a website glitch. I'll contact them again. Good to know they'll make it while you're on the island for the day. I spent last night admiring their Facebook page.
  12. Thanks for the information! I sure didn’t think I’d have a problem when we were in STT last year. We did a snorkel trip and just had time to shop near the pier. I specifically don’t have anything planned for this stop in St. Thomas and had planned on heading to St. John. I’ll check those sites out. I appreciate your help.
  13. Does anyone have experience with buying a yellow gold hook bracelet? I tried when we were in St. Thomas last January and none of the jewelry stores at Havensite carried them. St. John Bracelet Co. has a hammered one I love on their website, but I contacted them (through the site) and didn't get an answer back. A local friend suggested Sonya's (from St. Croix), but she currently doesn't have anyone on St. Thomas selling her bracelets. We'll be back in December and am ready to buy, but I'd like to see before I purchase. Thanks!
  14. We prefer the old menu - I like the flounder and the baked chicken. My husband like the steak and the shrimp cocktail. We're definitely not "upscale eaters" I also like the old menu at La Cucina, but I guess that's not coming back.
  15. Here are some photos of the other Owner’s Suite. https://boards.cruisecritic.com/showthread.php?t=2360524&highlight=spirit&page=2
