  1. During their rainy season it could be 50/50 - I went in late January to early February this year and I believe they had a ship have to skip port before I arrived; however, another one was able to bring in the tenders during my time there.
  2. Ooh I am! We are booked B2B for the cruise after it as well. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Near the airport, along the coast. You can’t miss them, they’re actual big black rocks haha. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. You’re just like my husband [emoji4] ours isn’t until Christmas 2019 but he literally went right in and filled in everything he could. I’m going to wait a little haha. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. sorry image didn’t post originally. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. We booked as 14 since it was significantly cheaper than separately. But posts like this say that it does happen mid cruise, and my account already reflects I will earn 2 credits for this itinerary instead of just 1. My mom is single in an inside and it shows her earning 4. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Semi-related: we have booked a 14 day for next year that is two 7 day itineraries. I should technically be platinum after the first week. I feel like I’ve read conflicting accounts; some say I do get a new card, some say no - and I don’t know if I’ll get internet for the second week or not. Any recent data points on this? My cruise planner/history thing on the website does show I’ll receive 2 for this cruise so I figured that is a good sign. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Hm. My husband mentioned ***** since we booked the Sky and since we haven’t had any cruises booked in awhile I hadn’t been paying attention to what was going on. Sounds like if it hasn’t rolled out by then though we aren’t missing much yet. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Interesting! I’ll move to Platinum in the middle of my next cruise since it is a B2B. We get internet in most ports though now thanks to Sprint, so I think we can get by without the unlimited on our trip. On our last vacation in the Cook Islands we paid about $75 over two weeks for a bit of internet but that was mostly to check in on the dog and work, which I can do on port days.

  10. So - my husband and I just spent two incredible weeks in the Cooks; mostly on Raro but also spent four days on Aitutaki as well. There is so much to do! We snorkeled almost every single day; we loved Black Rocks a lot (saw lots of blue sea stars and other fish) and also Muri Beach has great snorkeling one morning during high tide. If you prefer hiking, they have a good cross island trek - we weren’t really fit enough to do it but it’s a good day hike I think. Probably one of my favorite things was the Raro Buggy tour through the abandoned Sheraton resort. We got so covered in mud but I couldn’t stop laughing What else? There are lots of great restaurants; breakfast was honestly my favorite thing each day. We rented a car while we were there although I wish we had gone for the scooter licenses and tried those - I was just too nervous. They also have some stand up paddle boarding and lots of other water activities. Oh, I loved going to the brewery tour at Matutu too! It is this little local set up but I learned a lot about it and their beers are really good; well worth the $10-15 NZD. I can’t adequately describe how much I loved the Cook Islands and I hope one day to make it back. It was the vacation of a lifetime. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
