When we cruised on Disney to St. Maarten and St. Thomas, we were warned by different people (Disney-affiliated and others) that the folks that braid on the islands are not monitored by the health department, etc. There are quite a few cases of lice that start at the braiding booths. I would probably go with Princess Cays-I would assume they are regulated by Princess. Sanitation is worth the extra.

I'm sorry, but if I am going to have my hair braided, I'm going to have it done onboard by the salon. I have seen women on the islands chasing women down the street with dirty combs, wanting to braid their hair. I have seen them braid one pesons hair and immediately use the same comb to do the next. Ick. Ick. Ick.:eek:

In case you haven't heard enough about sanitation, I'm with them. Have it done at home or in the salon on the ship.


I do believe that the answer to your original question is about a buck a braid, beads extra. If you are going to do it, shop around. The braiders are everywhere. Just like any other purchase, don't buy the first that you see.
