  1. I believe I know, but I want to make sure. We will be leaving on Sunday for our cruise. If we go on a tour, should we follow the ship time (I don't know if the ship changes time when it arrives at the different ports), or the island/port time?
  2. Pghsteelerfan, yes CC does come in handy when asking questions of others. If I know the answer, like you have done, I try to answer questions also. I have read that some people feel embarrassed to ask, but I said there should never be any question that most people who have cruised would have an answer for. Sometimes I go to TripAdvisor, but I really like CC, and after I get back from my cruises, I always try to write a report on our trip. I'll tell you a little funny. I have been getting all my clothes out (my sons say I take my whole house with me, and normally I do, but then that is just ME!) and had all my flats/heels lined up on the bedroom floor. I had most (just the outer clothes I would be wearing in the day and night) of my clothes spread out on my queen size bed, covering most of it. Low and behold, right in the "middle" of all my clothes was my cat Buffey. He always seems to know when I'm going on a trip, like he wants to go to. πŸ™‚ Once again, thank you for your help. This Sunday cannot come SOON enough for me!
  3. OK, thanks! It "helps" to know ahead of time of the "cost/money" that we may be putting out. πŸ™‚
  4. Pghsteelerfan, thanks for your input on my question. This will help. πŸ™‚
  5. I do like to see the cruise reviews that people write, but I do not put pictures in them like others do, and that is nice when they do. πŸ™‚ I have cruised off/on over 25 years, and have written many reviews on each of these ships. We will be leaving on the Fascination next Sunday. I plan to write a review on it when I get back. πŸ™‚
  6. Since you ask about the "beds," I will make this suggestion, unless it has been changed. If for some reason, your mattress seems to be too hard, you can ask for an "egg crate," and they will put this on the bed to make it softer. I do like/love Carnivals beds. πŸ™‚
  7. This is just MY opinion. πŸ™‚ #2 would be the one I would choose. As for Amber it is fine. I do love San Juan, St. Thomas, and Turks and Caicos, and have been there more than once! πŸ™‚ I'm sure whatever itinerary you choose, you will like it.
  8. We are planning on making it just a little bit tour (Timothy Hill viewing) and Carmbola Beach in St. Kitts. Any points on how far this beach is from the port?
  9. We will be on the Carnival Fascination next week. We wanted to check out a beach as well in St. Thomas, and maybe Magens is the one we should do. Any idea the cost pp by Taxi for this? Is there a fee to use the beach? How about chairs/umbrella (we really don't have to have them), the cost?
  10. We are coming to St. Thomas next week. We have been there more than one time, and I understand St. John is not too far from there? What is the best way to check out St. John as we will be arriving at 7:00 and leaving at 5:00. I don't want to be stranded some place, and not have a way back "quickly." πŸ™‚
  11. After reading this, I was concerned about getting a Taxi as well. I have been to St. Thomas more than once, and really only wanted to go to Lindquist, Saphire, Magens, Secret Harbor or Emerald Beach. If you have been to one of these within the past year, can you give me an idea which would be the closest to the port? Also, my friend is disabled. Are there any vendors close by the dock, or is there quite a walk from the ship?
  12. Oh thank you for cluing me in on how the $28 Taxi price works. That does make sense. So if it is just the two of us coming/going, it would be $28 a piece each way, if I understand this right.? πŸ™‚
  13. When you say $28 per Taxi, is that for each person, and just one way? If so, that amount sounds strange compared to an even amount of money.πŸ™‚ Yes, if I cannot get to Romney Manor, I would like to check out some of the batik products at the port, if I can find out what the name of the place is there at the port.
  14. ABQrobin just made the suggestions for me. πŸ™‚ I always noticed that what we put in the refrigerator never seemed to get very cool. Then I found on CC the suggestion of leaving the cabinet door open some, and it works! πŸ™‚
  15. All I can say is just to "plan" on having a wonderful time on Carnival's Magic ship, as that is one of the ships I have cruised on as well. Carnival ships are known as the fun ships, or party ships. For us, we are older people, but still have a wonderful time on these ships without drinking, etc. like some people do. Some people can be very nit picky, but we are not that way. I believe that is why we always have a wonderful time on Carnival's ships. (I have cruised off/on over 25 years, doing several cruise lines, but within the past 10 years, it has been mainly Carnival. Part of that is because of the cost and itinerary. πŸ™‚ Actually we are leaving on the 31st of this month for our next cruise on Carnival. πŸ™‚
