Good Morning Gang,
Had a nice chat with my dad last night. I had ignored him a little with all the drama revolving around the FIL and wife. It is wet wet here.

Good evening Gang. I have not felt too hot today but I hope tomorrow will be better. Mom decided not to get the leg braces. I decided to to argue with her. If she does not want to try them, oh well.

I'm glad you guys had a good time together and I'm glad you had a good visit with your dad, Bob.

Hi all hope you guys are doing good. It's raining today in sunny California we call this liquid sunshine. So I had a 15 day Hawaiian cruise booked and the ports of Oahu and Maui were suppose to be until 11PM allowing us to go to a luau at either port. Then Carnival changed the times to 8PM and 9PM all luaus end around 9PM. I was really bugged by the reduced port times. My hubby called Carnival and they think it the change due to ship traffic in those ports. They should know that ahead of time and not sucker people into a cruise with certain ports times. I would feel different if we got to the port and ocean conditions or illness etc caused the ports times to be were reduced. That is out of Carnival's control.

But with Carnival's ships having issues and this change in ports times I wanted out of this cruise. So my hubby and I talked about it. We have only been on one Caribbean cruise, so we decided to save a few bucks, book an inside GTY on Crown Princess to the Eastern Caribbean. Last time we were on Princess was in 2002. So hopefully it's as good as I remember. My new ports are Princess Cays Bahamas, St. Thomas, St. Marteen, and Grand Turk. I have only been to St. Marteen so if anyone has tips of these ports please let me know.

Thanks for the tip. I'm in the mood to hit the beach and relax on this trip. Work has been crazy. Sounds like Grand Turk is a tender port. I didn't really check which were tender and which were docked. The only bummer about this new cruise is we have to fly. Before we could drive to port. But seeing this cruise is $700 cheaper per person we can afford the flight.

Good Morning Gang,

Kat - we have really enjoyed our two Princess cruise, both the same class of ship as the Crown. Princess Cays is their "private island" a little piece of land at the tip of Eluethra. Plenty of activities and lots of beach chairs. Our only complaint was that the sea floor was very rocky in the area we sat. The ship should dock at Grand Turk. It is pretty much another beach stop - the beach is right off the dock in fact. I agree with CQ regarding Magen's Bay, we have taxied over there a couple of times - have also gone over to St Johns for snorkeling. You can do that on an excursion or by taking a cab to Red Hook and taking a ferry.

Good morning Gang

Happy tequila thursday.

We are enjoying seeing old friends and our visit to CT. We have also spent some time getting our house spruced up sowe can sell it.
One house in Fl. is all we need, so hopefully we can sell our place in Ct.

I hope that you all have a nice day.

Thanks for the tips. My Crazy sis has been to Grand Turk and loved the beach right at the dock. I will bring my water shoes for Princess Cays just in case it's rocky. On our FOS cruise we stopped at Labadee and it was great because lunch was set up on the beach; all we had to do was grab a beach chairs and some beers and we were all set. Sounds like Princess Cays is the same way. I love snorkeling, but it's a hassle for my hubby because of his facial hair. The mask doesn't create a seal around his face unless he shaves it. So we will probably end up in Magen's bay. Is St. Thomas pretty safe? I remember hearing about some violence there.

Kat, it sure is nice to see you post here again.

We have been to St. Thomas several times and have not heard of any particular problems.
It's good to be cautious wherever you go, but I think that St. Thomas is OK.

I think there was an instance a few years ago where an excursion group was robbed in St. Thomas - if I remember right it was a Celebrity ship and Celebrity reimbursed all the affected passengers for their losses.

In St. Thomas they use so called "jungle taxis". There will be several at the pier. They will try to load the thing up before they leave Havensight. There is also a taxi stand at the beach, they will try the same thing. Magen's Bay is part of a park so in addition to the taxi fare there is a fee to get in, $4 I think.


Also, right at the pier there is a skyride to Paradise Point. We have never made it up there but I hear they have a killer adult beverage called the Bushwhacker.

Good morning Gang. I've had an insane week...but it's ended well. My daughter came in yesterday for the summer.

Kat, there is a lot to do in St. Thomas. I'm sure anything you find to do there you'll enjoy.

I hope you all enjoy your Saturday.

Thanks TM it's been busy at work. Some of my accounts went to hearing and I appear as the witness. That gets crazy. Thanks for the information on St. Thomas I think the media tries to freak us out to sell papers. I'm careful, but I was worried if I rented a taxi the driver would take us to a remote spot and rob us. But it doesn't sound that bad at St. Thomas, which is a relief.
