  1. If you Google the web you will find a dozen or more companies that run the same excursion. Prices range from $86 per person to $120 USD. Passenger capacity ranges from 12 to 46. There are three that charge $120 with max pax of 12, Calabaza & Silver Moon are the two most mentioned on these boards. Most of the others get good reviews as well. Check TripAdvisor. Decide if you want a small group or large or choose the price you are satisfied with.
  2. In Bridgetown Barbados there are more than a dozen companies offering catamaran lunch, turtle snorkel cruises that are almost identical in itinerary, with all departing 9:00 am - 2:00 pm. The capacity of these catamarans ranges from 12 (2 companies) to 46 passengers (all others). As far as I can determe there is one turtle viewing area and one shipwreck snorkel site. Does anyone have any other information? My main question is, how do these sights manage the volume of snorkelers/swimmers? I have read a few reviews where people complained about overcrowding and collisions with other swimmers, yet most reviewers seem to enjjoy the experience. Surely there must be some control. Would someone with experience with this excursion please post their comments. Thank you

  4. Most resorts are still under re-construction and many won't re-open until January or later. You could research the internet for some smaller beach hotels and check with them about day passes. Check TripAdvisor for Maho Beach area, which is near the airport.
  5. Cool Runnings appears to be referred to much more than the other and ratings are very good. I have not used either one so can't compare but I would tend to choose Cool Runnings.
  6. I believe their website indicates USB ports are located above the bed.
  7. Princess on a canal crossing at Christmas is a good choice. No matter what ship you take the itinerary is much the same.
  8. Do you have legal custody of the children? Do you have legal evidence of this? If so you shouldn't have a problem. If not I would consult a lawyer or family court for advice. You wouldn't want to show up and be denied boarding.
  9. I don't believe any of the 3 ports you mentioned have that brand. Check Total Wines in Fort Lauderdale, they usually carry it.
  10. We have had several cruises on HAL with pre teens and teenagers on port intensive sailings and they had no complaints. They usually found friends onboard and enjoyed whatever the kids programs offered.I would recommend HAL for kids as long as there no excessive sea days. NCL is O.K. too but never found their kids program better than most others. Don't know anything about MSC.
  11. How about a catamaran cruise & snorkel? Several operators recommended on Port of Call message boards. Singles welcome. Or an island tour? Lots of private tour guides available. Check your Roll Call for others with similar interests An artist gallery tour? Local tour guides available. Again, look for companions on Roll Call Maybe time spent in Marigot + lunch? Share a taxi or go alone. You can easily spend 3 hrs. here.
