  1. We do have a financial advisor that helps me with retirement stuff and 401K 's but I didn't realize you got on board credit by being a share holder so it may be something I want to look into but not sure how to purchase them on my own or whether you need to go through someone else. If we cruise enough our investment could pay for itself whether the stock market crashes or not.
  2. How do you go about purchasing shares?
  3. Snorkeling wasn't bad if you went out by the rocks. A local said Maho Beach is better for snorkeling! I'll have to check it out next time.
  4. I didn't think there was any ferry besides Red Hook when we were there a week or so ago. We did it on our own caught a taxi to Red Hook- didn't make it to the 9 o'clock so had to wait till 10 then took the 2 o'clock back as we had to be back on the ship at 4:30. I'm glad we left that amount of time. We actually left Trunk Bay at 1:15 and there were taxis waiting.

  6. I didn't see lockers but they had restrooms, showers, food truck and a food stand and a couple places to rent snorkel stuff and chairs.
  7. There are plenty of taxis waiting! Prices vary on where you go. Trunk bay was $6 one way
  8. I'm not sure the port but Know it was far away from the market place. So maybe Crown Bay? Water temperature not too bad and I didn't go into the water anywhere else higher than my knees! There were restrooms and showers also!
  9. Look up my recent post on St John on your own. There is food, drinks and chair.
  10. Just did St John on our own yesterday so I'll give you a run down on cost. The ship didn't give us the option of going on our own. We had hoped to get off the ship by 8:15 but it was after 8:30 so no way of making the 9:00 ferry. So took the 10 over and 2 back to be back to the ship by 4:30 Taxi going to Red Hook- $10 pp Ferry- $16.30 RT Taxi to Trunk Bay- $12 rt Taxi back to the ship- $11 Admission to Trunk Bay-$5 Total for 1 person- $54.30 Do not plan on using credit cards as that option wasn't available. I took pictures of the prices for rentals of snorkel stuff and food on the food truck so any questions I'd be happy to answer for you! St John is just gorgeous and the beaches are beautiful! Just wish we had more time!
  11. We have just boarded on the Vision and went to book that your and they told us they are not offering it! We are thinking of trying to do it on our own? We went there several years ago and really just liked exploring on our own!
  12. We did something very similar through Royal 4 years ago. It left from close to the port area and took close to 45 min each way' We got off the ferry and walked to the visitor center and they told us how to walk to Honeymoon beach (it took about half an hour) I liked it as there weren't many people around. My concern for you would be what time the excursion would start and end. I'm currently looking at the ferry schedules for myself in Feb and it looks like the last one that leaves St John is at 3:45 to return to Charlotte Amalie. So how much time do you actually have there? Our tour ended up being longer than they advertised I believe because we left at 11:15 on the ferry and returned at 4:30 actually didn't make it back to the port till close to 6. I wonder now if there a time difference? To do the ferry on your own its $24 pp so it may be worth the extra for peace of mind.
  13. How long was your tour and about how long was you at each place and what was the cost?
  14. Have you walked out by the water below the forts? It's a nice walk. I'm not sure I'd say it classifies as fun, but it is something to do and you will see plenty of cats!
  15. sorry I contacted a tour operator trying to find out the cost to get there and if you were allowed to explore the park and snorkel on your own, She said she didn't know and would check but I never heard back. We were just in Nassau and just walked to Junkanoo since I wasn't sure about the other.
