  1. Thermal spa pass and it may seem a small thing but I love having my own coffee maker in my room (balcony & above). Also appreciate the loyalty rewards.
  2. We’re going to be in St Thomas tomorrow 8am through 430pm and have prepurchased tickets for the skyride to Paradise Point. I was wondering when it would be less busy. We plan on taking a taxi to Sapphire Beach to spend a few hours snorkeling in the morning.
  3. I just wanted to let everyone know that if you love to snorkel and swim then THIS is the excursion for you. Damon stayed in contact with us via email before the day of the excursion and he made it very easy to meet up with him after getting off the ship. He drove us to a beautiful beach where he instructed our small group of 4 on safety and how to operate the scooters which propel you through the water. The scooters made it easy to dive to deeper depths and cover a lot of ground. We saw a ray, sea turtles and lots of fish and coral. We snorkeled for about an hour and a half. It was amazing! Then he gave us the option of going to Shirley Heights and the Dockyard, which we all agreed to for the additional $8/person entrance fee into the park. This was a nice bonus we hadn’t planned on. All in all, if you love to snorkel you can’t go wrong with Damon. He was a wonderful host and made our day in Antigua very special. We booked through his website, which also has lots of cool photos and information, skylork.com.
  4. My BF and I just did that excursion with Spencer a few days ago. It was a wonderful experience and I love snorkeling at Sugar Beach. Spencer himself piloted the boat we were on and he did have to stop briefly a few times to manually add oil to one of the engines but it did not negatively effect us in any way. If I’m ever back in beautiful St. Lucia I wouldn’t hesitate to use him again.
  5. We were able to stream our local radio station on my BF’s iPad and so we listened to the game with AirPods while having dinner in Moderno. LOL
  6. Thanks everyone for the input. We were able to stream Dave Mishkin (our local radio play by play announcer) on my BF’s iPad. We used his AirPods while at dinner in Moderno. I’m sure we made a strange site- barely conversing and then suddenly high diving each other. LOL. Go Bolts! My BF has season tickets as well. Three years ago we were on a German river cruise during post season. I sat in a dark dining room on the ship in the wee hours of the morning wearing my Bolts jersey and listening to Mishkin on iHeart radio. The only problem was, we were going through locks, down hill. So as we’d enter a lock and they’d pump the water out of it and we’d sink between the concrete walls I’d lose the signal. Then as we’d exit the lock I’d pick up the signal again. Ever since that experience I’ve been adamant that we make absolutely NO plans April through June. There’s nothing like playoff hockey! Go Bolts!
  7. The Lightning .vs. Bruins games is on ESPN+ so I,m hopeful. Do you know who I’d speak with? Thanks for your help.
  8. Has anyone ever had any success in requesting a specific game being put on one of the screens in O’Sheehans? If so, who did you talk to? Tampa Bay Lightning fan here hoping to watch games while on the Dawn.
  9. Last year my BF and I did an excursion that included an hour at Sugar Beach and I fell in love with the snorkel area there. I want to spend the day there when we return on March 26th off of the NCL Dawn. The cheapest round trip I’ve found is with Solomon Tours for $110/person water taxi. Anyone know of any cheaper way to get there?
