Taxis at White Bay
How easy is it to get a taxi at White Bay? When a cruise ship in port are there plenty of taxis available and are they close by?

I wasn't sure because of traffic but it will probably be the ship transfer.

Careful with some upsells. If you have a promotion like the Explorer 4 package, you might lose it if you take the upsell. This is what I was told last year.

I keep checking on the price of the cabanas. I originally booked it at $399. When I noticed that they lowered the price to $299 I cancelled and rebooked. We are sailing January 3rd and many of the...

The reviewer had said that having preference on the tenders didn't matter account they couldn't use the cabana until 11:00. It made no sense to me but just wanted to find out. Thanks for the reply.
When are the cabanas available?
I read in a review that you can not use the cabanas until after 11:00 because the attendants are setting it up. Is this true? We leave HMC at 2:30 and I don't want to pay $400 for 3 1/2 hours....
