  1. Yes, I highly recommend lunch on Eagle Beach. A few years back I had the grilled chicken panini sandwich with goat cheese at the Amsterdam Manor beach bar. It was so good I've been back several times since and did again, a must when on Aruba.
  2. Oh yes there is staying at the beach hotels. They are so nice, secure and AWESOME. The "port hotels" wow you must have some really good eyes, funny I don't remember being able to walk to Ft. Lauderdale Beach from the "port hotels" much less seeing it.🤔🙄
  3. Yes! Valley Church between Darkwood and Turner's. That's a GREAT beach.
  4. And btw the Park Hyatt MAY be " the nicest property on the island" you can set the entire resort down in the kiddee pool of the St. Kitts Royal Marriott. The Park Hyatt is right up your alley I'd stick with it and not go anywhere else on the island. See ya😉
  5. Have yourself a time at the Park Hyatt glad you had a "good experience" on the property. They're are several reviews here in this forum that are contradictory. I saw the Park Hyatt in Dec. 18, while on the island, wasn't the least bit impressed went back to Palm Court Gardens and did it up. Palm Court Gardens high end global clientele very pretty people cocktail party. My new go to on St. Kitts one of the best vibes of any resort in the Eastern Caribbean. If I were you I would stick with the Park Hyatt, have fun.😎😉
  6. Paranoid?? No, no, no don't short yourself we call that learning and getting it right.😉
  7. Sorry about your posts vanishing, as you can tell I sometimes have a way with words. I'm sorry.😎😉
  8. 2007 Emerald Princess Inaugural the Horizon Court Buffet instead of flip flops we should have worn steel toed boots and shin guards. We called it the Scooter Store 500 cruise. Those fossils were running over EVERYBODY, it got old quick. The Horizon Court was a race track.☹️🙄
  9. Princess Elite, I'll cut too the chase everybody just LOVES HAL to absolute death, but 90% of the time they end up cruising with Princess. HAL is a nothing short of a floating nursing home if your familiar with cruising ANY other lines. Certainly don't take my word for it I'd book a 14-21 day sailing on HAL and see for yourself. Have fun.
  10. The 1902 wipe out already heard that story before from Christelle our tour guide. They don't have to worry about that happening again, 100 year's later there's still nothing left of anything. I was there. Later
  11. Thanks for the info. I was on Mt. Pelee about 2 years ago, spent my entire life on a mountain somewhere. Mt. Pelee an active volcano does nothing for me. St. Vincent what's that?
  12. This is nothing more (or less) than misguided amateur hour, a VERY crummy way to spend Embarkation morning, and a horrible way to start a cruise. If I had to do whatever this individual has to accomplish on Embarkation Day to get on the ship, I'd stay home and watch reruns of the Love Boat.🙄
  13. Embarkation Day, that's what I happen to call it Embarkation Day 😎, the MOST stress that I've ever had and will experience is how I'm getting all my luggage from my hotel room to the ship without spilling my wonderful glass of Chardonnay. Stress I left that back at my condo 5 days earlier.
  14. Hyatt Place too expensive?? They couldn't pay me to stay there again. Ft. Lauderdale has too many nice hotels and too many great hotel deals to be stuck back there in a corner at the Hyatt Place.
  15. Then you should stay at the Hilton Ft. Lauderdale Beach, it's right beside the W across A1A from the beach. The Hilton is beautiful. I second the Courtyard Marriott great location wonderful stay. Great hotel rates you should be able to find a nice room in the FLL Beach area for well under $200 a night. Hotwire $100 a night 😉.
  16. Martinique is experiencing new significant seismic activity at the base of Mt. Pelee. It's an active volcano, it's going to erupt again, my guess 60-80 months max. I certainly hope we get to see the island again before it gets wiped out AGAIN. I love this island, the killer volcano is a bit much.
  17. #1 Turner's Beach-they have everything you are looking for. #2. Long Bay Beach-all the way across the island but worth the time and expense. #3 Darkwood Beach- just before Turner's always a nice day great little bar cold beers all day long. Beach is beautiful. Cab fare I'm sorry I can't help you with that. Maybe someone else can help you. If it were me I would do Turner's, new bar and restaurant, chair rentals clean bathrooms, water and beach awesome. Have fun.
  18. I was just kidding, you made a great "comparison" . That'll work. I remember you too, I had to throw something at you. Never a worry.😉
  19. It's not just ,"the yachting capital of the world" Ft. Lauderdale the way the intercostal is layed out that place is made for yachts. The marina I walked across the street, had coffee over there, it's really nice and quiet. Water is beautiful, nice people, I'm a tourist and look like one, they know that and are always accommodating. Did a deep sea fishing day charter out of there back in 2011, great fun great day. Its kinda expensive but totally worth it. I have to do it again, it's all in the weather nice beautiful day go fishing, from that marina. Everytime 😉
  20. Oh Brother, not again.🙄.......😃........😉. Stick with The Renaissance.
  21. I lived in Tampa from 1980-1985 University of South Florida grad. My sister lived in Boca Raton in Boca Isles for a decade. My parents owned in Jupiter sold and bought a PHAT condo in Lauderdale by the Sea. Where you happen to reside I have no interest in and either does anyone else. Just make sure when you get back or go at all let us all know how it works out for you. As far as SOUTH FLORIDA is concerned your in the wrong league bro. Have a nice DRIVE, like I said if and when you get to go on your trip, tell us the truth when and if you return, let us know how it worked out for ya big
  22. Like I said above, trip insurance lots of it.😉 Jacksonville👎WTH. Driving through good ol JAX I'd throw in a life insurance policy too. Good luck on that, your gonna need it.
  23. Come to think of it, I actually thought I was pretty good with math, not compared to you. Please for the sake of your costly endeavor come up with Plan C, D and E. Plan A and Plan B🤪. Just trying to help believe it or not.
