Carol and Eric, we have been following your amazing knowledge for what to do in St. Maarten for many years. We now stay at Beach Side Villas, the most amazing place in St. Maarten and have been to many restaurants you have recommended and have had the best meals. You guys really know what you are talking about. I have to let you know that we are apple users and can not put our pictures on your sight. I had thought I had heard “Beach kitten” was helping. Maybe I misunderstood what you guys were doing, I know you have a good amount of people who go to this sight who have I phones and (iPads) would love to show everyone there pictures. If you would like help in creating this, please reach out to us and we will be clad to help. We our going to Beach Side Villas in early June. We know you guys go in mind June and we would love to show you pictures.

Yesterday at 09:59 PM Last of the Delta 747s are retired [by PelicanPirate]
https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=UsLa43cWvAU

They are all now retired. This was a cool flyby.

Farewell ceremony at LAX and tour of the inside of the Delta 747.

I still cant believe we would park these beauties. I have to think we have peaked and may never re-ascend with the likes of 757s flying transatlantic and 767s,777s, and 787s with their lesser capacities and dull lines.

Bless KLM, British Air, Korean and Lufthansa for not counting the beans so closely to destroy the passion of the 747’s beauty.

Yesterday at 07:20 PM Getting a boat into Nanny Cay [by EllenS]
Hi All,
In a couple of weeks I will down in the BVI aboard a Marine Max boat (not mine) and need to get into Nanny Cay to see my boat which is over there on the hard undergoing insurance issues.

We are not familiar with the old or new layout of Nanny Cay and I was wondering how best to get there for a visit.

Is there dock space for my 44' somewhere for an hour or so? The captain is assuming the current books and charts we have are not current since Irma and we want to be sure before we enter Nanny Cay.

We also know we can get on a ball in Sopers Hole and taxi over if need be.

Thanks for any advice,
Ellen

Yesterday at 07:05 PM Orient Beach [by merit]
I'm assuming after seeing the video from January 1st, that nude sunbathing isn't the best or safest idea?

Yesterday at 05:19 PM Bare Necessities BNB 2018 Sold Out [by PelicanPirate]
Less than 2weeks to go. This baby has been practicall sold out for months.

2750 passengers.

https://www.google.com/search?q=car...awfD5AQ_AUIESgB&biw=1024&bih=661

10 days. From Miami.....Half Moon Cay (AN):, Amber Cove (AN), Curacao, Bonair, and Aruba.

Imsure it will be great. that said, i believe things get better with daylight attention and so therefore in the immortal words of singer Joe Walsh “i cant complain but sometimes i still do” i offer the following critiques.

Compared to last year they seem a bit less enthused/organized about onboard activities, themes, workshops, bands, etc. last year somebody really pulled it all together.

This year, excursions were announced last minute. Limited AN offerings. They get sold via carnival. Carnival website SNAFUs abounded with different to nonexistent infomdisplays and functionality whether you had an iphone, droid, internet explorer, firefox. Some people took the day off to be able to buy stuff only to find they couldnt see/buy what others could.some people had al,of the above open and were able to book. Iphone worked the best.

Last year great bands brought onboard, this year no announcement.

Last year, workshops formpurchase, this year none.

Last year, interactive massage time bookin, thisnyear dates/times picked for you take it or leave it.

Alot of folks cobbling their own excursions on cruise critic roll calls to compenste.

Anyways, the cruise is what folks go for. They have a great prodcut and am glad they do it. But not sure why they cant keep it as ggod/better.

Also, 2019 was announced like 6 months later than normal. Itinerary shorter, less interesting and more expensive. Well see how that goes.

Yesterday at 04:06 PM New Travel Calendar [by Eric_Hill]
The new member travel calendar is now active. Simpler design and now you can post and edit your own entries. When you go to the new calendar (link above below the banners), then on the upper right side you will see a log in button. Press that and register as a new user. User id does not have to be the same as here but can be. Add your email address and submit. The calendar will send you an initial password, which you can change after you log in the first time.

To add your dates, there is a plus button at the top right or click on the day in the calendar to bring up the add date screen. Most of that is then self explanatory, use the "Category" drop down menu to select the color coding of your entry. The start date and end date. You can ignore the all day and time entries completely.

The old calendar entries could not be migrated and we pretty much obsolete because of Irma. So if you have added any, then you will need to reimput those dates again.

I will also be setting up a general travel calendar in addition to the BVI and SXM travel calendars shortly.
