The port is a large industrial port which you cannot walk out of so there will be free port buses which drop you in town. Last time we were there the port bus dropped us in Piazza Santa Lucia (look...

It's been the case in general for the last few years. We've been doing land based holidays because of it and are cruising less and less, except for bucket-list cruises. For the first time in over 10...

But the good news for the OP is that they will be in place A, with none of the narrow minded restrictions and judgmental views of place B and as much as the place B people may argue their case about...

You should be aware that they do not present the Indian menus, as they did when the ship was in Europe. However, if you ask your waiter for the Indian menu they will get it for you. We just returned...

We visited Emerald Beach just over a week ago - It's our favourite too. The beach and buildings behind have suffered damage. The Best Western hotel was open, although I believe to house relief...

We really didn't like the Boatyard. They are money grabbers par excellence. They told us they were out of sunshades when we visited a few years ago but miraculously shades started appearing for...

I know from her FB page that JJ Haejong finally has another contract with Royal and moved to Navigator last week. Not sure which lounge but I would think she was taking over from Romina as they both...

We are currently on Jewel and visited St Thomas on Monday, first stop.after our departure from San Juan. The island had suffered a lot of devastation but they are really glad to have visitors back...

Currently on Jewel where Sergey is Diamond concierge. He is going on vacation a couple of days into the next cruise until February and Romina is moving from Navigator to take over in the D lounge.

Just a word of warning about getting the bus. Last time we were in Antigua we decided to do this. Headed to the bus station. Found the bus and sat on it and waited.....and waited.....and waited....

Very pleased to hear about Vigie Beach. We've holidayed in St Lucia lots of times north of Rodney Bay and visited Marigot Bay/Soufriere/Pitons etc many times but when we've called on cruise ships in...

I'd be interested to know that too - considering he's 67!

If I'm honest I think it probably does have to do with the fact it was free when we did it before :o and I agree people (Including me) probably wouldn't be complaining if it had never been free....

We did it once and thoroughly enjoyed it. We had a great group who all worked well together and managed to solve it within time. I would love to do it again - but there is no way I would pay for it...

This (highlighted) is one of the main reasons we think the Speciality Restaurants are worth it and choose to eat in there usually around 2/3rds of our days on a cruise. As mentioned in many posts...

And Jewel will be arriving there on 19 November from it's T/A and sailing from there.

Another question (Bob may know the answer). We're doing a B2B Transatlantic to SJ and then staying onboard for the following week. If I get off the ship when we dock in SJ after the TA and buy a...

Yes it is possible. We did this last year from the station to the ship. I'm a little confused over cyberjoys comment about a shuttle running from the old gate and this was not our experience (or the...

I think I can answer my own question (above). On checking my cruise planner it seems that all the beaches mentioned are visited by various RC excursions in St Thomas. So, as far as RC are concerned...

If you're referring to the one mentioned above close to Hotel Traghetto it's called Todis. We always pick up wine from there. It's quite a basic supermarket and you will struggle to find wine more...

100% agree with this, particularly the highlighted section. I think it's a shame that the board allows name-calling like this without any proof or any opportunity of come-back from the person named.

They sometimes don't hold Quest on Med cruises. The reason we were given is that if there are many nationalities onboard there could be language issues. Can see why - it would lose its spontaneity if...

Mmmmm that article - and subsequent research, looking at FB and other sites - would seem to contradict what RC are stating regarding St Thomas.......
