    Coxen Hole tours

    Are there any tours at Coxen Hole when you get off the ship. By that I mean vendors that you have not signed up for in advance. We would like to go to one of the parks where we can interact with sloths and monkeys and perhaps hold a sloth. Then maybe some shopping at the rum factory and cocoa factory, then back to the ship after a tour of the island. Thanks for any suggestions.
  3. Thank you, Princeton, but I had the day of the week wrong. It will be a Saturday. Does that change anything? The Penn Station/train sounds interesting. We might do that. I went to Carmel's web page and it had a price of $52 from MCT to EWR, but did not include tolls or taxes??? Would that run it up that much, up to $85-90?
  4. What are the options for transport from Manhattan cruise terminal to EWR on a Friday morning, along with approximate costs, please? We are planning to book our return flight home around 2 or 3 p.m. Thoughts?? Thank you.
  5. I also encourage you to try the Hotel Lleo. It's right near Placa Catalunya and very close to HOHO bus.
  6. We (senior mother & daughter) are on the Vision for her TA back to Florida the end of September. As you can see, we are also near Tampa, up in Spring Hill. I will be following along, looking especially for tidbits about the ship. I'm just slightly worried it might be a long 14 days since she's getting some age on her.
  7. We just returned from E. Caribbean sailing on MSC Seaside, and I got off the ship in St. Thomas specifically to purchase Rum. We were docked at Havensight. There used to be a very cheap liquor outlet right at the top of the streets going away from the ship, but they are now gone. However, I found one right on the main street going away from the ship on the left side. Got my Brugal Anejo Rum (aged and dark) for $15.00 per bottle, large size. You can't get it in the U.S., at least we can't here in Florida. It is excellent.
  8. We just got off the Seaside last week. We had the Fantastica package and our first Etickets said we had the vouchers. So I printed off the tickets and presented them to Guest Relations, and they did give us the 2 voucher booklets, but they DID photocopy my Eticket. So go prepared and have the Etickets with you that show the drink vouchers. As nicely, and they will probably honor them. Great perk for sure!!
  9. We're on the Seaside in a couple of more weeks, so reading with great anticipation. Keep 'em comin'!!
  10. I just got our documents from our TA today and the Fantastica drink vouchers are on the tickets. It has 3 stars or asterisks right next to where it says "Fastastica Drink Package" under "What's included." And when you look at the 3 starts down below it says "12 drink vouchers." I am waiting for someone to post getting off the Seaside in April, telling us their experience. And you can be sure I will let everyone know when we sail on 4/27, if we get them or not.
  11. Thank you, RCCL Fan. That was very descriptive. We should be able to find it.
  12. We are going to Costa Maya in a couple of months and I was wondering about Tropicante. How DO you get there?? How do you really know when you are at the right place?? Could someone shed some light on this, please?? Thank you.
  13. Mine is another vote for Hotel Lleo. It's right at the top of La Ramblas, left-hand side looking up. Very convenient location. You can walk almost everywhere. Hotel is medium-sized. Small lobby but very nice rooms at a very nice price. They also h ave a small roof-top pool.
  14. Thanks so much, goneclear. Exactly the info I was looking for.
