Sandollar
I also highly recommend the sanddollar. Captain Tony was great and it was very reasonable. Just watch out for the rum punch. Tony has a heavy hand when it comes to the rum.
Tipping Etiquette
I have a question. I have two teenage boys that I will be sailing on a 4 night cruise with. They will probably only dine in the formal dinning room one night if any. Should we still tip for all...

Ivan is the Best
We toured the ruins with Ivan on March 3oth and it was wonderful! You can get a taxi and tour the ruins yourself but you will only be saving a couple of dollars per person and you will miss out on...

Cat in Suitcase
Actually, I had to laugh about the cat story when I read it because I left my husband's suitcase on the spare bed last week to air out and I found our cat sleeping in it. I told my husband that the...

Ellen,
It's about time you got packing. My son and I have been packed since Saturday. My husband just started getting his things together last night. Of course that means that I have a bunch of...
Car Rental Question for Caro or Sally
We have reserved two cars with Alamo and I cannot seem to get a straight answer as to the location. The map that everyone recommended states that there is an Alamo at both the International and...
Florida Sunshine
I heard that the weather should be nicer by the end of the week. One advantage to living in Florida is that you can hop on a cruise last minute for alot less and not have to worry about coordinating...
All Packed
I am all packed also. Can't wait to get out of this rainy, miserable weather. It seems like spring gets later and later each year in the northeast. I am finding it very hard to focus at work now. ...
Meet & Mingle
A question for the seasoned cruisers. Can I wear shorts to the meet & mingle? The site suggests that shorts are not appropriate.
Jungle Tubing
CruzinEllen,
My sister in law is taking my son (15) and my niece (14) on the cave tubing excursion. They booked through the ship because the excursion is pretty long and they didn't want to chance...
chuggin
Grateful,
You are right about chuggin Guiness being a sin. Now that I recall, he usually chuggs Red Stripe. We will look for you by the bar. Sounds like your group will have their hands full with...
Where in the world is Rock Tavern
Gratefullawyer,
Rock Tavern is about an hour and a half south of Albany near Newburgh. Happy to hear you are getting in shape for the Guiness competition. I assume that it is some sort of beer...

Sally or PB Tom ? about Fishing
Sally or Tom,
My father will be on this vacation and loves to fish but he does not like deep sea fishing. Can he surf fish from the beaches or fish off of the pier? Will he need a license and if...
