  1. We will be there next week. I know the cost is minimal. We are just those people that pretty much never carry cash so I was just curious.
  2. Can you use a credit card to pay the entrance fee at El Morro? My husband and I are trying to figure out how much cash to bring along with us on our cruise. We do not want to be carrying around more than necessary.
  3. For those of you who have done a tour with Javin, did you tip him in addition to the fee he charges for the tour?
  4. Good to know. I thought both of the bigger slides were 42 inches. Is this not the case? If not, do you remember what the requirement was?
  5. Our cruise is next week. We thought he would have grown enough when we booked 9 months ago but he has only grown 1/2 inch in the past 9 months! We are getting him hyped up for all the other things on the ship like the arcade, kids club, mini golf, etc.
  6. That is a very horrific situation. However, from what I read about that incident he actually was the correct height (they had previously had an age restriction but had lifted it before he went down the slide). The slide was the worlds tallest water slide and has since been shut down/demolished. Not saying that I do not recognize that the height requirements are there for a reason but I do feel like the situations are different.
  7. We have some. Just wasnt sure if they would make him take them off to measure him.
  8. Would never do that! I understand why they have the requirements. Even if I got hurt as an adult I wouldn't sue.
  9. Thanks for all the responses. I am a stickler for rules but my husband has been wanting to let our son try the big slides. My son is a dare devil and really wants to do them. Sounds like I might as well let him try!
  10. We will be cruising on the Magic in about a week. My son is only 41.5 inches and the requirement for the slides is 42 inches. Does anyone know how strictly enforced the slides height requirements are? With water shoes on he would most likely hit the 42 inch mark but I saw online that they say the measurement needs to be with bare feet.
  11. I used this site to figure out if there would be a time difference! https://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/converter.html?iso=20190601T160000 . Just input the city your ship is departing from and St. Kitts. For our date their will be no difference in ship time and island time.
  12. Thanks so much for the feedback! Sounds like something that would be worthwhile for us to do.
  13. Can you update us on your experience? I am considering booking this for our cruise coming up in 2 weeks. My son is going to be about an inch to short for the water slides on our cruise ship. Was hoping that the slides at their pools my make up for that. We are planning to go to Maho Beach regardless. Just trying to decide if it is worth doing this resort for a day or if we should just hang out on the beach (would also go to Mullet Bay Beach as well).
  14. May I ask where you stayed with your day pass? I currently have a day stay booked at the B Ocean but would love to be somewhere that has a shuttle to the airport instead of having to pay for an uber or taxi.
  15. This will be the only port in which we plan to use a taxi. Does anyone know if children are required to be in a car seat when riding in taxis on St. Maarten (yes I am aware that even if they are not required it is the safest option)? We have a travel booster seat that I am planning on bringing but was just curious how strict they are about their use.
  16. I had to email twice before I got a response. It typically takes them a few days. Also, our son is 4.5 as well and they said he would be fine.
  17. We are booked with Javin in May. My only concern about this excursion is the snorkeling with my young son. He has been practicing in a pool but has never snorkeled in open water. Does the water drop off fast or if need be can me or my husband stay back with him in a more shallow area? If my son doesn't last long snorkeling is there much of a beach at the snorkeling site?
