  1. Misty Morning, Mgirvin has a good suggestion in the Holland House. We bought a day pass there for out port visit. Just an FYI you might want to check with Holland House on the shower/towel situation. We were offered the use of an outdoor shower that was open to the bar/sidewalk... more for rinsing sand than cleaning up for a flight and our beach chair rental did not include towels. Happy sailing
  2. Hi Ridethetide, That is a funny picture! It brings back fond memories. It never crossed our mind to take a photo.
  3. The upper deck staterooms might give you a better view. We were on the lower deck on our first cruise on MS Windstar. We left the curtains open on a rough crossing and looking out those portholes reminded us of a frontload washing machine...which gave a laugh. When we arrived in port in Grenada, our portholes looked out to a concrete port wall. We still had a great time and the movement was much less than last years deck six suite on Star Pride, that caused me a bit more motion sickness. Happy sailing whatever deck you choose!
  4. We are just about a month out from our sailing and I logged on to Windstar's site to possibly book an excursion. It looks like they have changed the first port from Vieques to Charlotte Amalie. We have not yet received any notice from Windstar. We are not disappointed since we like enjoy wandering around ports and exploring and Vieques looked like it would be either a snorkeling or beach day, without much to explore in town. I have a couple of questions: Windstar's site show tour options for Charlotte Amalie, but no descriptions. How do we get more information about the tours? Does anyone who has been to Charlotte Amalie on a Windstar cruise(or other) have any suggestions for excursions or tips for exploring independently?
