  1. We have decided to rent some rhino riders to enjoy the morning. This was our original plan but it seems like no one on here has done these before (they seem to get excellent reviews on TA). Anyone know the cost for a taxi from the port to the Simpson Bay area? (For 7 people) Is it $7 pp?
  2. We have already done this and absolutely loved it. Review is in signature link. The last time we rode horses (and even in the water), my daughter did not like it much and honestly I didn't really either (even though I have rode many horses growing up).
  3. This is so unlike me and I can't figure out what to do here. We've been here several times and have been all over the island. I just can't figure out what to do. We thought about renting the blow-up type boats, but didn't get a response from anyone who has done them...so that worries me. Any request that someone would like a review on? (I do huge picture heavy reviews for those of you that don't know me). Give me some ideas guys and gals. I'm stumped. We leave in 3 days and cruise in 5...YIKES! TIA
  4. Yes, I'm so glad you came up with this solution. I'm going to work on it when we get back from our cruise as a temp solution to my problem. I work on my website here and there, but honestly, I take too many vacations to keep up with it. ๐Ÿ˜„ I guess that's really not a bad thing...at least for me. HA! But I've been busy with school, work and owning a few companies that I just never had time. I have now finished school and sold a company...which only leaves me 2 jobs now. LOL I'll be able to work a little more on it (after my upcoming cruise and review of course). THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THIS!!!
  5. Thanks so much. It has definitely been hard for him to handle. It has been hard on all of us because our families are very close. I'm hoping time away will do him some good. He has not been doing well the last 2 months and not to mention...broke his ankle/leg and had surgery with plates and screws. ๐Ÿ˜ž Thanks so much Heather. We appreciate it. Thank you so much. We appreciate it. I read prior to our cruise that it seems to be closed A LOT during the entire cruise. At least I went in knowing this seems to happen frequently. It was open the entire cruise on our week though.
  6. Thank you so much. It means a lot. Keep Billy in your thoughts...continued...he just lost his uncle last week...and last night...his baby sister. ๐Ÿ˜ž He's trying hard to make arrangements for the funeral a day before we leave for the cruise. Times are very tough at the moment. ๐Ÿ˜ญ
  7. You are very welcome. There are a few that I've done recently that aren't listed in my signature because I ran out of room. ๐Ÿ˜ž You're welcome and glad you enjoyed it. Sakari is getting so big so quick and I just had to go out and buy all new shorts for our upcoming cruise because she can't fit any of hers from this cruise in December. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ
  8. Thanks and be looking for my review around the beginning of May.
  9. Thanks and hopefully you got my other reply with the link that's now updated with our land vacation pics too.
  10. Ohhhhh, thank you so much. I'll definitely check into this.
  11. Thanks for all the replies. I was just trying to figure out if I could keep from having to take the actual cash with me to play. It makes it so much nicer (for me) not to have to carry that with me and using the room card words better for us. I also don't mind if it gets charged to the room and then onto my cc attached to the room. That just gives me double points back and I'm fine with that. I didn't realize about the 5% fee?
  12. Brookie, if you are still reading...I have all my Aruba land vacations uploaded onto my Smugmug now if you are interested in other places as well. You can find them HERE. Haha. Glad you enjoyed it and hope you enjoy the others as well if you read them. (Some are not listed in my signature line because I have ran out of space). Yes, they are very very long. lol Thanks so much for the comments and glad you enjoyed the review. It sounds like your Brooke and my Sakari are a lot alike. :) Thanks for inquiring about Kendras fiance's dad. He did make it until we returned from vacation, but he has passed away now. It's been a rough time because Kendra's fiances dad and his best friend passed away in a tragic auto accident the same day. We have all been struggling with the lost of two great men. :( Happy cruising to you and your family. Thanks for the comments and glad you enjoyed the review.
  13. Someone remind me how the casino (slots) work with RC. I can't seem to remember. Do you have to use cash in them to play (like NCL) or do you simply use your room key (like Carnival) and it keeps the totals in a separate "bank" on the card? Does it charge your room bill or ??? Why am I having a hard time remembering this? (I even took the time to look up my last review with RC and couldn't find where I posted anything about it in there). Thanks in advance.
  14. You are very welcome. We went to Aruba on the Conquest as well. Then we've had a few land vacations there too. You can go to my smugmug account and see different places we went to there. Here's the link. We went there last year too but I never put the links on my account. I should probably do that because we visited new places then as well. We absolutely love Aruba. So much to do there and so easy to get around. I haven't been able to find a cruise to Bonnaire yet during the time frame we travel. ๐Ÿ˜ž Hopefully some day I'll make it there. My favorite port to start a cruise is PR as well. I wouldn't mind doing another land vacation there too (we somewhat did 1/2 land and 1/2 cruise then back to land on one of our cruises and it was my favorite yet). Having fun planning and let me know if you have any questions. I'll see about getting my other pics up.
  15. I googled them and couldn't find an actual website. I found a fb page, which hasn't been updated for several years and an advertisement for things to do in Antigua and it only seemed to list renting bikes, mopeds and maybe motorcycles (even though they had a picture of a 4 wheeler on it). Trip Advisor has nothing but bad reviews with people complaining about them not maintaining their equipment. Also, I'm not looking to "rent" anything, I'm looking for an excursion (with a guide) by dune buggies (or a side by side type of off road vehicle) to show us the sites. ๐Ÿ™‚
  16. Yes, I finally got a response from the assistant. ๐Ÿ™‚
  17. Last time we were here, we rented a car and went everywhere on the island and just about every beach. The island was still devastated after the hurricane at the time. We are looking for something adventurous to do if there is anything like that. We were wanting to do a dune buggy tour, but it doesn't look like this is the right place for that. I came across a "self-drive boat tour and snorkel". They look like a lot of fun. It starts at Simpson Bay. Then goes around the west coast of the island and over to Creole Rock where you do some snorkeling. It's a 10' inflatable 3 person boat that you drive yourself (following a tour guide). Has anyone done this before?
  18. Awesome pics John! I'm glad you reminded me of the church. I will have to try to check it out this time if I get a chance. Yep, that last cruise was awesome and we had a fabulous time on the Horizon. I can't wait for our next on The Freedom of the Seas!
  19. Awesome! Glad you were able to contact them.
  20. I have had excellent communication with them over the last week or so. (I ask a lot of questions lol and they have answered almost immediately each time). I would try emailing them again if they didn't respond to the first. They seem to have excellent communication every time I've emailed.
  21. Did you get to stay at the beach after the tour? Did they take you back to the cruise port when you were ready? Did you stop at any other beaches for a while? I see pictures of the Shipwreck Bar on South Friars (which we have been to already) and also pictures of Reggae Beach bar at Cockleshell (which we had also been to previously) and wondered if they stopped there for a bit during the tour? We haven't been to Friars yet and are a little excited about seeing a different beach. How long do they allow you to stay there? Do they provide any drinks or lunch or anything during the tour? It looks like a lot of fun. One last question, I seen some people complain about the heat coming from the engine up in the passenger area and burning their arms. Did you experience this at all?
  22. I just emailed again....I'm getting nervous (especially since there will probably be 10 of us wanting this tour) and only a month away. Fingers and toes crossed.
  23. I can not get Javin to answer me at all. ๐Ÿ˜ž I have emailed him twice already. Anyone have any thoughts?
