  1. Thank you! We will be in Cartagena in February and we were just thinking of stopping by the fort for pictures and then on to the walled city (I'm assuming that is the clock tower) to tool around, maybe some lunch and then before boarding, go to the free wildlife place at the port. This help a lot --- go outside of port for taxi, negotiate and agree on a price before getting in the car - thank you again!
  2. I know this is an older post, but maybe someone will know --- is the $3 or $5 taxi to/from the Old Town per person or per taxi ride (up to 2 or 4 people)? Thank you!
  3. I'd like to know as well ... going to be in Aruba in February
  4. Thank you! We decided to book with Woodwind on their 4 hour tour (morning tour), so we might be 'snorkeled' out afterwards - what other things would you suggest we do for a few hours before going back to the ship?
  5. This is GREAT!!! Question - I know that Bonaire is one of the best places to scuba - but what about snorkeling from the beach/shore? If we rent a golf cart, which of the blue markers are best for snorkeling? Also, we will be there mid February - is the water temperature nice and warm or is it chilly? Thank you so much!
  6. Will they sell Carnival gift cards on the new program? This sounds just like when Verizon changed their program and of course, their new program no longer sells the Carnival gift cards.
  7. I keep saying I'm moving to St. Thomas... you know the house that you overlook when going up the cable car ... the one that has a infinity pool ... we joke st work that will be my house one day 😊
  8. Cool .... thank you! Do you live there?
  9. Thank you ... those are all of the places that I've researched ... guess I'm just tired of looking (been booked since January 2017) ... unfortunately, Tortola is at the end of our cruise ports and most Poole are probably just wanting a relaxing day ... does Brewers Bay have chairs and umbrella rentals? My boyfriend is not a big sun person. Where are the surf lessons? That's something different for sure.
  10. How are the beaches now that it's been some time since the hurricanes? We will be in Tortola November 13th on the Breeze and we are trying to find something to do that doesn't break the bank, but still leaves us with something to remember Tortola with. Thank you
  11. Ok ... I'm going to ask it --- what's the big deal about The Baths? Am I missing something? Just a bunch of rock formations and the 'possibility' of snorkeling if the current isn't too rough .. I also hear it gets super crowded. Please enlighten me ... we will be there in November and trying to find an excursion is frustrating as you know what. TIA
  12. Ok, thank you ... he quoted me $40/pp for 5-6 hours, so still not too bad - I think we are going to book him and be done with it ... Grenada and Tortola are giving me heartburn trying to find something to do ... ugh - now to narrow down Tortola
  13. Awesome ... he gave me some suggestions for places of interest and I added 1 more (might have been on his list and he just didn't list it) ... said it would be apx 5-6 hours. Good to know about motion sick and sitting up front... one of the people going with us tends to get motion sick on smaller boats, so not sure if she'll have problems... We have 5 people at the moment ... how long did you have to wait for him to fill up the van with the other people? How much did he quote you vs what the other people paid?
  14. How many were in your party? Did you arrange the tour with Cutty in advance or find him at the port? I've been communicating with him and thinking of booking him for our group of 5. Did he customize the tour for you? How many hours was the tour? Any information would be great. TIA
