Aruba treasure

I think the first thing to remember is to leave at home anything you don't really need. Of course your passport is often required along with some other things, but life is so much easier and...

I wish it were so...living in Southern Arizona, locals (not snowbirds) seem to follow the rule pretty closely. I personally think it ridiculous; wear what you want if you're comfortable, but I don't...

cap'n chunk, thanks so much for the response. That hike remains one of our favorite things we have done in PV. It was so out of the mainstream, or at least felt that way to us. Thanks for the info on...
Playa Las Animas question
The last time we were in Puerto Vallarta was for a land vacation - we took the city bus to Boca de Tomatlon and then hiked along the waterfront through the rain forest to Playa Las Animus - loved...

Not sure if you are aware but with the ages of your daughters, thought you might be warned, a portion of Orient Beach is a nude beach and when we were there last year, we walked down to where all the...

Water or land taxi to Secret Harbour
We'll be in St. Thomas in Nov. aboard the Epic and would like to know if there is a water taxi to Secret Harbour - and if so, how much is it. If not, does anyone know the cost of land taxi?...

And it wouldn't be so bad if they were picked up right away, but we have seen trays sit in the hallway all day. Not cool!
Thanks for the responses
Thanks - guess I'll save those baggage fees, huh? Caribbean night - isn't every night Caribbean night :D

White night would probably be doable since most cruisers have some white with them.
Theme nights
It used to be cruise lines had different 'theme' nights, like for instance a 50's night where people - well you get the idea. Does anybody know if they are still doing this and if so, how does one...
Excellent!
Yours look a bit wider than mine, but I think I'm gonna give them a try. Thanks so much for your response!
I have a snorkel gear question
I have a question for anyone who might know. I now have two sets of swim fins, one the standard size (long) Body Glove from Costco which I have used for a number of years. Then I just found one of...
Johann & Sandra's Food Tour - Any reviews?
We are going to be in PV for a couple of weeks in late Nov/early Dec and are considering doing Johann & Sandra's Food tour. We would love some input from anyone who has taken this tour. Is it worth...
A little help Por Favor?
Hi Crzn-Life, we are spending a couple of weeks in PV in Nov. Tho we have visited quite a few times, we've never stayed and never driven there. We want to rent a car and drive to Ajijic. Would you...
I'm in
Rockapulco, wow -good job! And good advice. Did you use a group/attend meetings or lose the weight all on your own? I've recently lost about 40 lbs - since early Nov., and now would like to lose that...
Oops
Sorry sbcatcher1, I see your post from just a few days ago on the roll call. :o
Yep!
You've probably solved this problem by now, but yes, I just tried booking an excursion thru NCL and got "unavailable", so called them and they booked us with no problem. Don't give up! When do you...
Thank you for the recommendation
World Gallery,

Thanks so much for the recommendation on this book. I ran to the library and grabbed it up. It looks great and I can't wait to dig in. We cruise 11/28 and have never been to NOLA....
No problems with food or drink.
We have been to Mexico many times and have never had a problem with local food and drink. We do usually stick to bottled water and soda, though (unadvisedly) we once had an iced barley & water drink...
thought this was odd...
We were in Cabo recently and went to 2 or 3 banks trying to buy some pesos with US$. None would sell us any. We finally ended up just getting some from an ATM. We thought it strange at the time and...
cost varies
Hi Rosefloater, cost does vary depending on how many people you have. We paid I believe it was $40 pp for 6 of us back in Dec. As for payment, he would not allow us to pay until AFTER the tour. It...
Anything new?
Thanks for the well-wishes CarRan! I don't see any new or exciting suggestions here for Acapulco...Have you come up with something good?
