  1. Does anyone know if they have these clamshells near the pool, too? I'd like the shade, but plan on doing the pool instead of the beach.
  2. Our ship ports in Harvest Caye and I had a couple of questions. The ship sells a pool cabana that I was considering when on the generic shore excursion site is said $249, but for our specific cruise the price is $349. So I have a couple of questions. For the regular chairs around the pool are there umbrellas/shade? We are traveling with my 73yo mother and she doesn't want to be in the sun. Does anyone know details about the golf cart rides for people with mobility issues? Do you have to arrange with ship? Is there a fee, or do they do it for tips? Any advice anyone has for Harvest Caye with an older adult with mobility issues would be greatly appreciated!!

  4. The way they work on Royal Caribbean is you have a cup that has a chip in it. The machine reads the chip to dispense.
  5. Any idea what a taxi from the cruise terminal there and back would run? Approximately?
  6. We sailed on Royal Caribbean with the Freestyle machines one time. That particular cruise, they hardly ever had all the options available and there was quite a line. If they maintain the machines so that the necessary ingredients are not out all the time, I do think it could be a good thing
  7. Does anyone know if you have already paid for the Soda and More package, if they will honor your previous order? I see the new packages, but my "reservations" still show the Soda + More.
  8. Not always that quick, this is why our tour left without us in Grand Cayman. Not on Princess, but Royal Caribbean, we booked an independent tour, set the meeting time, and apparently they included another family with us. The other party posted on Cruise Critic about the "great" excursion they had because the other family didn't show. According to the tour guide, they were on the first tender and refused to wait. It was our first cruise with Royal Caribbean and had NO perks. We were in line for tender tickets 15 minutes before they were to start giving them out, it took us over an hour to get off the ship. If you are booking a private tour, I would 1) check if you are the only people on the tour as the guide will be more likely to wait 2) be sure that you let them know that tendering could take a while because of ship sponsored tours, high loyalty passengers, etc. 3) have a back up plan in case they don't wait. There were four ships in port that day, so that does make the tenders spread pretty thin.
  9. Thank you. We have participated in things before only to find out we were not going to be able to attend an important part down the road, then you feel like time was wasted. I'm really looking forward to this, thanks for sharing!
  10. Are any of the check in times/clue giveaways during port times ore are they all pretty much when everyone is on board?
  11. I did end up finding a place I think we are going to try. It is called Eden Rock and it is walking distance from the port (I think it said 0.4 miles?) https://www.edenrockdive.com/snorkeling.html
  12. Yes, you can walk to the beach area without taking the lifts
  13. Has anyone taken a cab from the port to Cayman Spirits Co? If so, what was the cab fare? Also, does anyone recommend anything either on the way, or back other than Royal Palms Beach Club or Calico Jacks? We've been to Grand Cayman a couple of times and have been to Stingray City, Rum Point, Hell, etc. and we are doing water activities in all the other ports. Just looking for something unique while in Grand Cayman. Thanks!
  14. Book through Marineland tours, they have a very nice boat that is specially equipped for limited mobility. Their website has pictures. Very easy to get in and out, but also the staff will assist.
