  1. Yes I think your 4.5 year old would be just fine. All kids are different, but knowing my kids at that age, they would be fine.
  2. I don’t recall the water dropping off fast. I’m sure one of you could stay in shallower water with him, yes. There isn’t a sandy beach at the snorkeling site—it’s all rocks.
  3. Hey Gatordad! I see you are taking another cruise, so your cruise last year must have been a success celiac-wise! (I didn’t go back on cruise critic after our sailing last year, so if you did a review I missed it.) We just did another cruise as well over February break on Adventure, and it was another 5 star gluten free success! Have fun on Allure!
  4. You can book through his website. Just google My Island Tours by Javin and you should find it easily. Have fun!
  5. Following along—someday we will make it on Symphony! My kids are similar ages to yours, so I’m looking forward to reading your experience on the ship.
  6. We spent about an hour at the beach. If you do not want to snorkel, then you can spend that whole time at the beach. Javin gives you the choice. One lady in our group did not want to snorkel, so he dropped her off at the beach first, then took us to snorkel. When we went back for her, we spent about an hour there before heading back to the port.
  7. Yes! I believe it’s called Timothy Hill, or something like that. We stopped to take photos. It was beautiful!
  8. Wow, I’m thrilled to keep getting such great reviews of this excursion! I can’t wait to experience this! Thanks for the photos too—they are beautiful!
  9. I don’t mind at all! Our cruise is 9/29–10/6. The day we are in St Lucia is 10/3.
  10. Thank you! The fort sounds great for something to see before we head back to the ship!
  11. We just did My Island Tours with Javin in St Kitts. It was a FANTASTIC day. A little bit of everything—rainforest hike, climbing on the lava rocks by the ocean, a fantastic lunch provided by Javin, snorkeling, then beach time! And you travel around between activities in a nice van and see so many sights! Javin shares so much information—I feel like we saw all of St Kitts. And Javin has a pet monkey that comes on the tour—“Peaches”. She’s adorable and sits on your shoulder! He also takes photos of you on your adventures the whole day and shares them with you online for free. A truly wonderful day—our favorite of all our stops. It’s the best! For our upcoming cruise we have booked Beach Limerz in Antigua. We have read so many great things!
  12. Hello! Here’s my answers: No, you couldn’t swim in the tide pools at the lava rocks. When we snorkeled, we saw a lot of huge starfish, and different colored fish around the shipwreck, which was really cool to see. For the beach time we just went in the water and hung out on the sand and took it all in. So I’m not sure if there was snorkeling there. I think it was Cockleshell beach, so maybe google “snorkeling at cockleshell beach” and see if anything on trip advisor or cruise critic comes up. The rainforest hike was probably an hour or so. That part was so interesting! It was my son’s favorite part of the day. Javin gives you so much information, and quizzes you on plants and things—it’s fun. We saw wild monkeys too which was cool. And the best part? No one else is there. It’s not a touristy spot. Javin created the trail himself, dug steps and made railings out of bamboo. No one else goes there. So it was just our group of 9. So fun and so beautiful and peaceful.
  13. Oh no—sorry to hear that. The first time we emailed we got a response quickly. The second time we emailed, just to confirm our reservation, it took several days and another email to get a response. I’m sure they will respond—he was very professional and organized on our day there. Try to email again. I reeeeeally want this to work out for you!
