They have an 840 am tour. I see cruise ship arrives St Maarten at 8:00 am. Do you think there is enough time to get off the ship and make it to the 8:40 tour?

Thanks !!

I had asked for the early one too, but they said that time was not available for our ship. I think the available times were 11:00 and 2:00. Email them, they are quick to respond.

hhmmm. All the photos are linked from photobucket and my account does not have any bandwidth restrictions. Hopefully it was just a short term glitch. Let me know if the photos are still unavailable.

Can you mention how you got the black border around the pictures?
It makes the photos "Pop", and they look amazing! I always do white borders, but I love the black better. Is it the camera or where you store them?
great review too!

The first formal night (lobster night) is Sunday, the day the ship is in Nassau. The second formal night is Thursday, a Sea Day.

great review too!
I cheat with post processing software, using a batch processing program which automatically reduces file size and adds a border to all images with one click. Reducing file size is great for uploading photos to the web. The software I use is free shareware located at download dot com (affiliated with cnet dot com). It is called Photoscape. I have used this software (with upgrades) for at least 6-7 years. It's not quite Lightroom, but it great for being free!
