  1. Wow. Thank you for such a fast reply and thank you for all the info. Now to decide :?) Thanks again!
  2. Hatteras, so far the only places that I have been able to find for chair rentals is Coco Loco (which doesn't sound too promising), Paradise Beach Villas (where we will have to go to their pool bar to get food and drinks and probably have to pay to use the restrooms), or a vendor near La Cabana. Are their others that I have missed? I am afraid we have been spoiled by experiences like Kontiki in St Maarten where we had our own servers for drinks and food and a convenient restroom/changing room available. In addition, we are retired seniors so searching a beach for vendors sounds a bit daunting. I'm not keen on day passes but beginning to wonder if that would be the best for us. Thank you so very much for all of your postings on this board. We, the readers of this board are in your debt for all of the information you have supplied us with. Thank you much, Nancy
  3. Thank you but as I understand it, if Princess isn't sponsoring a shore excursion with him then he is free to book with you independently. However, I believe he has an agreement with Royal that their passengers will have to go through him. That's the way most of them work.
  4. Thank you all for the info. Rigo from St Thomas Flyboarding called me today. Not sure if this is true for all Cruise companies, but he said that they are still in the process of recovering and are currently only taking reservations via Royal Caribbean. I had made a reservation via their website but they he going to cancel and refund our money. Rigo was very nice on the phone and I have read nothing but good about his instructions. Still, DH and I don't often do ship sponsored shore excursion, plus, the cost with Royal is $169 for each participant and an additional charger for any observers. Granted that will cover your transportation, but I think you still only get 30 minutes with the instructor and then it is someone else's turn, whereas the tour is for 3 hours so I suspect the rest of the time you are waiting on others take there turn. A lot to consider.
  5. Have booked a session with St Thomas Flyboarding for DH. Would like to add a beach with rental chairs and umbrella for before and afterwards but don't have a clear picture of what is close-by. It looks like they are close to and/or affiliated with Island Beachcomber, but it also looks like they close last year? I saw a review that mentions a bar and restaurant close by but didn't name the facility. Can anyone who has been there give me an idea of some options close-by? Thank you much for your help, Nancy
  6. SOLVED! Thank you all for your kind, helpful and humorous comments and support. In the past clearing history and cookies did the trick, but no longer. I finally borrowed a computer running windows 10 and Voila! So an extra thank you to Oceansaway17. It works over and over again, using Windows 10. Ticks me off but at least I have my answer now :( Thanks again to all of you! Nancy
  7. Thank you all for your responses. It means a lot. At least it helps in the "I know I'm not crazy (I think?)" department :?) . I tried again this morning and no go so yep, I'll have to do it blind as you suggested. Thanks. But its comforting to know that their are people out there that will take a few minutes of kindness to help a frustrated stranger. Thank you again!
  8. I have been unable to login (again) for the last few days. I have used the (recommended) IE, as well as Chrome and Firefox. I have also tried Firefox in Private mode and Chrome in Incognito. I have also tried it with a different computer (my husbands) and a different account (his). I also can't log in to my Celebrity account. It's like, I put in my email and password and on IE it just sits there. I lost the stare competition after about 10 minutes of waiting. On chrome in the bottom right of the window was a progress message "can't connect to aws-prd.api.rccl.com", some kind of Amazon SW thing. On Firefox it also had a message but it was simply can't connect to royalcaribbean.com (over and over again). IE just sits there ... I tried changing my password and I received the email to do so and went through the process but it still didn't work. So I called the number for website help twice yesterday and both times all they could offer was to change my password. Again. They logged in themselves without any problem but for me the new password still didn't work. I asked them when I might hear from a tech person and they said something like, it could be days. (As if I'll hear at all) I was hoping it would be better today, but, no. As a last resort I emailed C&A and received an auto response. I imagine they will follow up with me but this isn't really their area of expertise. So I'm not sure what to try next. Anyone with other recent solutions to recent log in problems? Sheesh. I swear Royal has (and has always had!) the most problems of any website that I have ever seen. Bar none. Thank you for your time, Nancy
