Yes, but also a Sapphire resort and beach on STM and the poster was likely referring to it by the resort. It wouldn't surprise me if there are many "Sapphire" beaches around the world.

Yes, and even the "Saints" are spelled differently. "Sint" for Dutch and "Saint" for French.
But there is no St Marteen.

When speaking of cruises, they all, or 99%, call at Philipsburg on Dutch...

I know we aren't supposed to go overboard on spelling, but place names ought to be correct IMO. You mean St Maarten I presume.

Perhaps the first Princess ship, but far from the first ship. B-I-L was there just last week. Not much back to normal. Basically, people were going to the beach in front of downtown. Some...

No one mentioned the Holiday Inn Express along 17th. My understanding is they have done some renovations this year. I will be indicating prices as $Base/$Total, meaning the first figure is the...

Did I type Marriott?:o I must have been thinking of other hotels. But it doesn't say that now. ;)

I would call Hilton's Customer Care line and tell them about the water charge and other issues. If the water charge is worth the call. I bet Hilton HQ will contact the hotel and give them "what...

I understand the OP's disappointment over Magen's Bay. Although not indicated I have to believe someone who has cruised over 20 times has been to STT and Magen's previously. Surprised some personal...

I disagree, having been to STT countless times, including staying on-island. There are plenty of taxi vans and some cars, so it is quite possible to catch a ride in an enclosed vehicle. It's just...

Never had a delay on 84th, but understand your point. We do head to the port early. We take the free Hertz shuttle as a customer returning a car and it is efficient. Always take us right to T2.

Sigh... this should be on the port board for Fort Lauderdale (FLL) and/or Miami (MIA). I also don't think there is one answer to your question as the port areas are far enough apart you wouldn't...
Thanks!

Beautiful. Thanks for responding. We have a plane to catch at nearby AEP for P. Iguazu, and LATAM just announced a 1/2 hr earlier departure for our booked flight. Helps us at the destination, but...

Also, the reverse direction (east side to west side) with Island Princess Winter 2018 (Summer down there).

I have always had it as 6:00pm. The impact is the next port, La Serena where arrival and departure are both 1 hr later than before (same time in port). This makes sense as the ship has further to...

Do a Google map and you will see the distance and estimated driving time.

You can get a taxi, van, bus service. Rent a car. Lots of choices.

We are doing a private tour in Valparaiso, so it...

Most of the posts here have concerned disembarking passengers to Buenos Aires. We are on an extended cruise where B.A. is a port call (2 days) for us, but is also the end of a cruise segment for...

Looks like they may have built the brand new facility and forgot about the other aspects needed to attract and maintain customers. Hope they can get act together.

It's a bit of a pain for us as...

Any other specific names within walk of port entry/exit? Not sure if can interrupt a tour to buy wine.

Great info all. Thanks for sharing your experiences. Invaluable for our one-day stop this coming winter. I may email you Ken for a couple of questions.

Hi. We are on the ISLAND for whole trip around S.A. Thus far, Princess, has been officially status quo, but another CC member posted to their social media and got a "we're working on these trips"...

Just in case you are not aware, there are specialized threads on each port stop and cruisers post all sorts of information, recommendations, and Q&A's on port stops and you might find what looking...

This is fantastic news. Obviously, before others ask, this is at the main Princess Pier/Terminal #2, which I know will be the one for our upcoming B2B.

Crowne Plaza on Rt 84 @ US 1. Can't beat the location. Nice hotel. But it's been getting pricy.
