I believe so. We had to walk through the gauntlet of vendors to get to the buses. I actually wasn't looking for taxis since we were hopping on the bus.
A cautionary tale about the 'FREE' buses.
We stopped here on Saturday (RCI). I imagine it will be the same no matter what line. We boarded the first free bus that takes you to the end of the pier (several miles). We were informed that it...

I haven't tendered in years. We are also doing MobyDick. Ship's arrival is scheduled for 7am. Info says 'arrive at kiosk at 9:15'. Would that be 1 1/4 hours after ship's arrival time? (or 2 1/4...
Stingray City Sandbar?
Is the 'sandbar' for the stingrays all sand? Is it at all rocky, filled with shells? Is there a possibility of injuring feet? Are water shoes advised? These questions are due to a medical issue. ...
Crown & Anchor "Bonus Gift" Wine
I know next to nothing about wines. Hubby likes Merlot. Of the choices in the list of "Bonus Gift" wines, which would be the closest to getting a bottle of Merlot. TIA

Also please consider seeing the 9/11 Memorial that is <usually> on the starboard side near the ship's bow when docked in Bayonne. It is a beautiful, poignant and very large monument given to us by...

The connecting door between 10228 & 10232 can only be used if you also have 10230. The doorways all connect in the vestibule. We had the JS and balcony and everyone used the balconies to go back &...

Are you also aware that you can get private transport to the bungalows? Look for the smaller 'golfcart' size vehicles; near the 'Information Center & Meeting Point" (across for the Dragon's Tram...

Anyone familiar with this excursion? Does the catamaran have shade? Is there much shade at Palm Beach? TIA

We've been on 3 (this year's will be 4) Halloween sailings. Not on Oasis though. The ships we've been on have had decorations, parties, parades (with both passenger & crew participation) and...

Only 1 person books the bungalow (not 4) The price is for the bungalow (I think up to 8 ppl). It's about $250. They supply towels, float mats, water, 'cabana boy' to get drinks and watch your...

Another vote for Columbus Cove. Not sure which ship but Anthem did not use water shuttle. There are 2 different 'sand' shuttles. One goes to CC bypassing the aggressive vendors. Just make sure...

Deck 14 is more forward, before Solarium

If you go to Horseshoe Bay, take a box of Cheerios from the ship. Walk over to 'Baby Bay' (to the right) and go near the rocks in the water (deeper is better) and feed the fish. Hysterical fun.

Just an FYI; bring the confirmation information with you. Check everyone's table assignment when you board so if necessary you can fix anything early (before time for dinner).
Anthem paid us to go into casino
On our 5-night Bermuda cruise, we received a 'letter' on the door with a code and info to get $5 free to use in casino. We are not gamblers at all but free is free. DH walked out of the casino with...

The shade is very minimal. Only early morning 9/10am and that's only if you 'hug' the rocks. Once the sun is overhead there is NO SHADE. We left before noon. Baby Bay is perfect for little ones;...
HSB new rental rules
We just got back from Bermuda. We went to HSB early and as the family (3 small kids included) went to "Baby Bay", I went to get the $150 VIP rental package. I was told that they no longer are...
Adventure Ocean Tipping
We will have 3 grands in AO next week; 2 in one group, 1 in another. Is tipping a general policy? Do they pool their tips in the group and then split it or is it split with all the groups? In...

I contacted the company. Everything right now is first come/first served. If we get a tent next week, I will post a pix.
My question too.

Beachie. Is the link a valid one? Can I rent this stuff in advance for when we're there next week? Sounds fabulous.
HSB rental prices please
Does anyone have the recent prices for umbrella and chair rentals at Horseshoe Bay? TIA

Taxi for 8?
I'm guessing we'd have to use 2 taxis to Crystal Caves since it appears the maximum is 7 in a van. The littlest passenger is 6 y.o. Anyone had experience with getting 8 in one vehicle? TIA
