Recently visited Cap Cana from Celebrity Silhouette, rough tide and windy, waited nearly an hour after taking a number to tender ashore. "Town" is a misnomer, really just a private development with...
Celebrity QUAD ripoff, families beware!
Celebrity is selling their trundle sofa bed as a double berth for two persons when it actually will only accommodate one proper mattress. Although at least one independent website indicates that...

It is a good spot, and better a well kept secret. Having said that, the shuttle is slow. I recently booked at Park N Go to better service the south end of the Port; closer to our ship and much...

We rented from Avis at the airport, about a ten minute ride. They picked me up at the tourism office near the ship, and dropped me off at the ship at the end of the day. I can recommend them, very...

No, we did not rent from Avis. It was a few years ago, so maybe Google "rental cars Curacao". The office was on the northeast side of the town, over the big bridge. Great bargain. I think it was...
snorkel spots?
Could you recommend a few of your favorite snorkel spots? Or possibly a link or other reference? We like to rent a car and explore a bit. Thanks.
Avoid luxury airport parking
We have used "Luxury" three times, went well first time to the airport, then just OK to the port, and finally the last time to the port, they lost our keys. Never again. Others are now recommending...

Not at the pier without reservations. We rented one last minute unreserved off site and they came and picked us up at the pier. $35 bargain. Roads are decent, drivers civilized, navigating a bit...

We rented a car last minute but they came and picked us up at the ship. Good roads and civil traffic. Spent all day driving and exploring. Got back to ship and dropped off the family only to get...

We emailed three rental car agencies, and Avis was quick to respond, with pick-up shuttle offered at the cruise dock. We reserved with them and will post our results after our return.

The terminal parking garage @ $15 is starting to look better now that Park N Go is up to $12. I miss the old days when you could park nearby for $5.

OK, you are correct, AVOID us1airport parking. They could not confirm my reservation, gave a non-functioning email address, and the phone listed on the credit card charge is not in service. Beware.

Three votes for ParkNGo. We just got burned by us1airport parking, invalid email and no working phone number. Beware.

It's a gamble either way. We've paid the $20/day @ POM and still came back to find a dent in our door.

What did you find? We have rented cars on Aruba and Curacao and enjoyed the freedom immensely. What did you end up doing?
Parking PTE Port Everglades?
We are trying "US1 Parking" for the first time. Has anyone used them and do you have any feedback? They are about a mile outside the port @ 2800 South Federal Hwy, and seem fairly reasonable at $58...

Ditto that. I heard onboard that NCL corporate is under new management. That said, my PCC has actually lied and cheated me. Never again.

The Weather Channel website is reporting Hurricane Joaquin to be possibly the most destructive on record to the Bahamas. Our thoughts and prayers go out to those residents affected. While Nassau...

Yes, the Seavis day trip has good reviews, but can get spendy for a family of four. We might try renting a car next time. Years ago we did a DR land trip, renting a car for a month and drove almost...
