Didn't mean to leave y'all out! You must have been posting as I was writing. :cool:

We are with Cruzincanuck. We love the time of year and also the itinerary. I, too, have been wanting to go to the ABC islands. Hoping that things work out.

I have booked nearly all of the excursions for my family privately and have never had a problem. As a matter of fact, our very first excursion was with Peat Taylor in Ocho Rios. We are planning to...

No, they just dip you in. If I remember correctly, it would sort of be similar to standing in the ocean and feeling the current. You are only in the water for a few seconds. It's refreshing!:D...

Cruiselines generally charge more because they want their cut. The cheapest I have seen for parasailing through the RCCL, for example, is $79 for a single person. When you book privately, you pay...

If I'm not mistaken, I believe that there are lockers that can be rented for $3.49 using your setsail pass. However, you can only take your stuff out once instead of continually going back all day. ...

My wife and I bought some Coach "knock-offs" at the Straw Market in Nassau. There are so many people selling them that you can just walk away and they will keep coming down in price. They also see...

There is a weight limit of about 450 lbs for a tandum ride (of course, this depends on the equipment that is being used and the guidelines of each individual company). Having said that, my DW and I...

Yes, you would be able to go parasailing by yourself, but your grandmother may have to sign the release forms (or better yet, get the release forms ahead of time and have a parent or legal guardian...

I guess that it just goes to show that what cruiseline you like best depends on what you like to do. For example, I'm sure that some really enjoy the freestyle cruising while my DW and I really...

My DW and I went parasailing with Sebago last week and had a great time. We had a 10:00am time and we were the only ones on the boat so you might say that we had a private charter. Captain Hans and...

We just returned from a 4 night cruise on RCCL's Majesty of the Seas. While the rooms were small (even when compared to other RCCL ships) we didn't really mind as we don't spend much time in the...

My DW and I were at CocoCay just last week. The water was refreshing. There is a rather large building the holds the snorkel gear. When we were there, there was plenty to go around. Let me just...

My DW and I just got back from CocoCay. It's a great stop in the middle of the Bahamas. As mentioned, everything there is owned by RCCL, but you can make what you want of it. We rented waverunners...

We did a tour with Peat Taylor which includes a tour around Ocho Rios, as well as a trip up Dunn's River Falls. My DW and I enjoyed walking up the falls. You have a guide and you go as a group...

One should feel very safe in Labadee. Port-au-Prince is about 125 miles to the south which is about a 10 hour bus ride. There is another large city about half way called Gonaieve which is where the...

One of the great things about cruising is the tremendous flexibility. When in port, you can come and go as you like. Want to sleep in? No problem. However, if you don't really like the sun, I was...

My DS and I rented waverunners in Costa Maya a couple of years ago and had a blast. I think it was a new offering as I had read nothing on the boards about waverunners being available. I'm not sure...

Yes, it is Maho which is about a half hour taxi ride from the cruise port. It's a nice white sandy beach, but there is nothing special once you get into the water. It slopes off pretty quick.

Let me add something here. Cosol is not simply a tour operator. During the tour you will come to understand that Cosol cares his island and he enjoys getting your to pump money into the St. Lucian...

Oops! One more thing. About the roads. Since St. Lucia is a volcanic island, the roads go up, down, and around the hills. There are very few straight roads. I tend to get carsick, but I didn't...

Trish...I agree with Leslie that Cosol's tour was our favorite. When my DW and I cruised on the Serenade of the Seas in January, we did 4 all day tours and felt that Cosol's was the best. We did...

kcnn01...let me give you a run down of what we did on our Serenade cruise and then you can decide if you might want to go that route.

You can see pics of each day on webshots....
