  1. Thank you. Good to hear. I was worried that I needed to rush off the ship and hope not to miss the tour. Now, I have a little bit of time.
  2. We are sailing on the Freedom of the Seas on Dec 1. When we port in Curacao, we are scheduled to arrive at 8:00 AM. Is that ship time or local time? Does the ship time change to match the port time? We are taking Irie Tours and they said that the tour begins at 9:00 AM local time. Does that mean we have 1 hour once the ship arrives? I wanted to be safe than sorry and not miss this tour nor any other tour we have scheduled. thank you
  3. Great review. We will be on the FOS December 1, 2019.
  4. We don't sail until December. I just looked and it is not offered for me right now. How much was it per person?
  5. Are you on a 3 day cruise? If on a 7 day, does it specify which 3 days you have the drink package?
  6. Josh, Take good care of the Freedom of the Seas. We are getting on when you get off. 😀
  7. At first I was going to sit and wait a little bit and watch prices but as Zach stated, "supply and demand" so I started looking at different options thinking that the prices may continue to rise. Well, we booked our flights last night. I played around with the dates and it is definitely going to work out for the best. Here is the scenario: If I would have booked the original flights i looked at yesterday (outbound on Saturday 11/30 and return Sunday 12/8) on SW, it would have cost me $673 per person. The cheapest price on the day that SW released their schedule would have been $550 per person. Now, I booked the outbound leaving Friday and returning Monday for $500/per person. I was able to save $173 per person and now have 2 extra days of vacation in SJ. With having to pay for 2 extra nights, we still come out +$100. that will go toward food. Thanks everyone for your help and opinions. it helped. Trying to book air fare is a big game and sometimes you just need to get lucky and find a good price or when to decide to pull the trigger and book the flight
  8. What is everyone's opinion on Spirit Air? I know they nickel and dime you to death but if you can get a good deal including the baggage and seat choosing fees, is it a decent option?
  9. The part that is going against me is that we are flying to SJ the Saturday just after Thanksgiving. The airlines almost always jack up the prices during the holiday travel time. I know a price point I am trying to get around. If it hits near there at any time,, I will pull the trigger and book the lfights.
  10. Sorry. The Wanna Get Away seats were sold out. I know I am around 6 months out. Still have time to grab something. Supposedly, the sweet spot to book air is aorund 90 days out.
  11. We are doing this tour in December. Can't wait.. You were only in the water for just 1 hour? Seems like a short period of time when the tour is 3 hours long
  12. Hmmm. I may have made a mistake not jumping on the SW fare as soon as it came out. We are flying from BWI to SJ on Nov. 30 and returning Dec 8. the original price for a non stop flight was $276 both ways. Today, the outbound is $376 and the return is $319. For some flights, only a certain amount of seats are available and once gone, the price goes up. Not al flight have seats available to purchase. I am also looking at flights from DCA. I have found on Delta an outbound that is comparable to the original price but not non stop. Again, the odd thing was how 4/5 of their flights were showing as "sold out" 45 minutes after the fares were released. Guess i need to keep checking
  13. If you want to buy an authentic liquor from St. Maarten, try Guavaberry. It is very good.
  14. Can any one explain to me how Southwest does their pricing? We are sailing the FOS on December 1-8 out of San Juan. Southwest opened up their schedule for that time period this morning. They were supposed to be released sometime today. I kept checking this morning and maybe 45 minutes after release, the majority of the times available for the "Wanna Get Away" pricing was already sold out. How is this possible? I know people were waiting but this is ridiculous... Do they only open up so many seats at a time? I was expecting the SW prices to be much better than everyone else but they were actually more. However, when you factor in that you get 2 pieces of baggage free, it is about the same price as everyone else. Should I jump on what I can get now or wait and see if other flights open up?
  15. We are doing a snorkeling tour with Woodwind in early December in the time is from 8:30-11:30. the next tour is from 12:00-4:00
