  1. Curacao is way different from Jamaica. We lived in Curacao for two years.
  2. There are so many better things to see and do in Curacao.
  3. If zoos appeal- the Ardastra Gardens and Zoo are nice. (About 2 hours.)
  4. Went by the lighthouse, but not to it!
  5. Magen's Bay is a good place if there are not too many ship's in. We took the ship's tour to Magen's.
  6. It is a great little city. Good walking city- Heritage Site.
  7. Let us know what you find!

    Driver for the Day

    We found inexpensive taxis in Aruba- but that was just to the beach, casino, and beach bar at Palm Beach, For a tour we took a 3hour bus trip and saw most of the island.
  9. We like the British Colonial Hilton -close to the ships and taxis go there. We also like the Melia which is on Cable Beach. E-mail for prices.
  10. The roads are very narrow in Dominica- so it is good to have an experienced driver and excursion guide.
  11. We went on a bus tour which stopped at the Aloe Factory, The Casabiri Rocks, and the new natural bridge. We saw most of the major sites and 2/3 of the island. It was 3 hours.
  12. Thanks for the review. We enjoyed the Dolphin Encounter.
  13. We get a van taxi for $5 per person if you wait until its full. Otherwise it is a short ride to the Hilton.
  14. We have done ship's tours in St. Thomas.
  15. That is a light day. Last time we were there there were 6 ships in!
  16. We went to Harbour Lights on Carlisle Beach and enjoyed the beach club.
  17. It is best to e-mail The Melia for the present cost.
  18. Due to the ferries to get to the Blue Lagoon, we took the ship's excursion. That way we got back in time.
  19. The Melia has a good beach area and good pools. We have been there many times. (When it was a Sheraton too.)
  20. There are many free areas - the casino, the shopping village, and of course the walk around the yachts. Check on the pricing of the Dig- by e-mailing.
  21. Thank you for the report on Palm Beach. We have been there many times and often stay near Gilligan's for food and shelter.
  22. We have been to The Melia several times- even when it was The Sheraton. We enjoyed the beach, pools, and general atmosphere.

    The Blue Lagoon is a good excursion- from the ship. The ship's excursion gets one back in time!
  24. We always stay at the HIEx due to the location and walking to restaurants and stores. The Embassy Suites is not far and good for lunch by the pool.
  25. We have always found something interesting to do in Nassau. Last time we did the Dolphin Encounter at the Blue Lagoon and had a great time. Have done lots of excursions in Nassau- most on our own.
