  1. End of June. We expect to be there by noon but of course with traffic etc you never know.
  2. Thanks! The parking right at the cruise terminal looked full the last time we were there, and we read you can't reserve it ahead of time (it's first come, first served). We would not be able to be there first thing in the morning since we are likely driving up the morning of. Does it typically fill to capacity on cruise departure days?
  3. Good points. We are coming from the south, so we'll pass right by Newark airport. We have a minivan. I don't pack light either so I'll have full size luggage. The cruise leaves and returns on a Sunday.
  4. What are parking options (besides the $40 per day at the terminal) for the manhattan cruise terminal? Last time we did the hotel package with parking, but don't need or want a hotel this time. We just need parking only- preferably outside the city (neither of us want to drive downtown, so we'd like to park and then get an uber in). Is our best bet long term airport parking ? (cruise is a week long) and if so will the uber be able to get inside the lot to pick us up or will we need to drag all our luggage to the exit? Usually those lots have the arm preventing exit/entry unless you take a parking ticket.
  5. Thanks! Child is age 4. So the pools and water slides are all free? How much are the pedicabs (or how much should I tip) and where do they take you? I am not against spending a little $, just not $80+ per person for an excursion.
  6. What 100% safe options are there to do with a young child to do in Amber Cove DR? (not a booked excursion or something that costs a lot) 1. Is there a decent beach within a 5 minute walk from dock? If so , how do you get there? Is it free? 2. If not, where is the closest decent beach, and how do you get there? 3. What are my other (safe) options that would be suitable to bring a young child to and not cost much?
  7. What 100% safe options are there for a woman and young child to do in St Thomas? (not a booked excursion) 1. Is there a decent beach within a 5 minute walk from dock? If so , how do you get there? Is it free? 2. If not, where is the closest decent beach, and how do you get there? 3. What are my other (safe) options that would occupy a young child for the day and not cost much? I've been once before, and we took the ferry to St John for the day. It was amazing, but we didn't have a child in tow. Wold like to do something different this time- something easy with less moving parts (less hassle and less things that could go wrong).
  8. What 100% safe options suitable for a 4 year old child to do in Grand Turk, preferably inexpensive? (not a cruise line excursion) 1. Is there a decent beach within a 5 minute walk from dock? If so , how do you get there? Is it free? 2. If not, where is the closest decent beach, and how do you get there? 3. What are my other (safe) options that would occupy a young child for the day and not cost much?
  9. What 100% safe options are there for a woman and young child to do in St Maarten? (not a booked excursion) 1. Is there a decent beach within a 5 minute walk from dock? If so , how do you get there? Is it free? 2. If not, where is the closest decent beach, and how do you get there? 3. What are my other (safe) options that would occupy a young child for the day and not cost much?
  10. What 100% safe options are there for a woman and young child to do at Princess Cays? (not a booked excursion) 1. Is there a decent beach within a 5 minute walk from dock? If so , how do you get there? Is it free? 2. If not, what are my other (safe) options that would occupy a young child for the day and not cost much?
  11. Thanks! So are the beaches like Ft lauderdale beach/Ft lauderdale beach park and las olas beach (or crystal beach) over crowded? I'm just going off of google maps (never been there) so apologies if the names are not specific enough. Also, are the areas that the sun trolley drops people off good beaches, or is it worth driving farther for a better beach?
  12. So anywhere the sun trolley drops off at a beach will likely be crowded? Is there ample free public parking at Dania and at Dr. Von D. Mizell-Eula Johnson State Park/John Lloyd? Are there always people at the state park on weekends? (I just don't want to be by ourselves in some secluded area). I assume FL state park beaches are much different than our NE state park beaches, which are often secluded and empty. BNBR, why would you prefer/recommend Dania over John Lloyd?
  13. Thank you! You and others provided such invaluable advice!
  14. What is the best beach between Port Everglades and Hollywood , FL? Or is it worth going farther north for Ft Lauderdale/ Las Olas beaches? My idea of a great beach is NOT crowded. I don't need bars/drinks, or chairs/umbrellas. Prefer being able to enjoy picturesque, photo-worthy beaches and the natural beauty of the area. But of course it needs to be safe, and clean.
