Thanks! I'm glad my review could help you decide on the Victory! I'm a bit sad that she'll be replaced by the Valor, since I'd love to do this itinerary yet again, sometime in the future, but the...

CAROLROY - if you are looking for a beach for St Martin, try Little Divi Bay resort. Open to the public, not real crowded and very close to the port. I...

I'm so glad you liked the review! Always happy for feedback!

Dress code is probably one of my biggest pet peeves anywhere! If I'm going on a cruise, I want to relax and not be told I have to...

Thank you so much! I'm glad you enjoyed it! :). I always end up spending more time on these than I think I will, but it's so much fun to relive our trip as I write. (Now if I could only scrapbook...

I cannot recommend this cruise enough! (As you can see from my signature, we've certainly done it enough :p so I might be biased, though!)

Seriously, if you enjoy taking extra time on either end...

Looking forward to your detailed review in the future. And hopefully, you'll include lots of pix! But take your time! It's true - "real life" can be quite busy and hard to adjust to again after 10...

Thanks again! I think Old San Juan is one of my favorite places to photograph. Definitely more Old World feeling than French St Martin!! And yes, free wi-fi; I guess the signal probably was "leaking...

Thanks! But to be honest, my aunt and DD took some of the pix, too. those are the ones with "mandypix" or "kaypix" in the bottom right hand corner, instead of my screen name.

As for publishing,...

Thanks so much! It's always interesting to see what other people consider to be photo-worthy; I just think it's funny that we both considered this view to be so, but from slightly different...

Yep! As much as we weren't sure if it was worth it at the time, we are definitely believers now - the aft wrap was certainly the way to go!! With this latest cruise of ours, it was nice to have the...

My whole family loved the Victory. DH and I have been on her before, but this latest trip we brought the kids and my aunt, too. Other than spending more to fly to San Juan, I can't say anything...

Most of the beach is not made for snorkeling. Lots of sand, no reefs close by. I thought I saw a post a while ago that on the right hand side of the beach, more by the rocks, there was some...

I'm glad they turned out well for you. Ever since you mentioned it, I've been thinking about trying some. I think I have a good idea of how to do it, from your description. If you think of a way to...

You're so welcome! I had fun with it.

I think that your youngest will have a blast, with this particular cruise being his first. I bet he'll be like a kid in a candy store!! Actually, they all...
