Yesterday at 01:35 AM Organizing Craps Game @ Casino Royale [by smalbany]
The island's only craps table at Casino Royale is not staffed because not enough players are coming through. Mr. McLoney, the casino GM said if we can get 4 or 5 players to commit to playing Thursday or Friday night for 3 hours (or so), he will bring in the staff to run a game. If you are on the island and you want game, please PM me.

Thanks!

12/11/2018 09:22 PM Help with a crewed charter [by dtenel]
Hi all! It's been quite a few years since I have been on this board! My husband and I are thinking about taking our kids and their boyfriend/husband on a crewed charter over Christmas next year. We have never done crewed because my dad always captained us around but sadly he is no longer wth us. Can you guys point me in the right direction of places/people to start looking into this? We don't necessarily need a cook, but are open to looking into that as well if there are some that come with the captain. Would like 10-14 days depending on kids work schedules. We haven't cruised the islands in about 15 years so I want my kids to get the same experience and develop the same love for it as I have! Thanks for any and all help!

12/11/2018 08:37 PM Anchoring at Peter Island [by CestLaVie]
Traveling with a party of eight to BVI January 27-Feb 4 on a Moorings 4800. All of us have been there multiple times, but we have never spent a night on Peter Island. Based on our itinerary, we are planning to spend our last evening, a Sunday, at Peter Island to allow us a short trip to get the boat back to the base and make the late morning ferry back to STT. As we will probably get to Peter rather late in the afternoon, I am assuming that finding a mooring ball may be a major challenge, thus making alternative plans for anchoring if necessary. Anchoring on the north side of the island, it looks like Little, Great harbors and Deadman Bay are possibilities, with White Bay or Key Point on the south side. Just looking for recommendations as to which of these may be our best alternatives for anchoring if we are unable to latch onto a mooring.

Also, I assume that there are no real dining/drinking options at Peter Island at this time?

12/11/2018 01:32 PM Royal Islander La Plage: Week 49 [by smalbany]
Greetings:
I am sharing observations of my experience of Royal Islander since my arrival Saturday. Clearly, the priority was to get the resort up and running in a condition that would allow guests to be comfortable and not hindered by ongoing remediation.The resort is operating at @90%. By that I mean most all of the rooms can be occupied. Some rooms have remaining work to be done.....a sliding door is not closing; interior work not complete, etc. Some guests are being accommodated in alternate spaces. There is work ongoing in public spaces and some infrastructure. For example, a number of wiring ducts for telephone, wifi and TV that are normally hidden from view are exposed. The lobby check-in desk and lobby bar are a work in-progress. Many rooms are missing one-thing or another. Some rooms the TVs don't work. In others things like shelving in the refrigerator are missing. As each quest is acting like a quality control inspector for their room, the resort staff is to be commended for the patience and response to guest complaints. On the very plus side, the grounds look great. The jacuzzi, pool, deck, and chairs are all new and operating.

The terrace level rooms seem to have been completely redone with a new style of furniture and layout. I will try to get into see one today.

The Tortuga Beach Cafe is open and updated.
