Just called and the marina is open, no electricity on dock, pools still empty, no ETA given. Marine Max is using as base. Not sure if TTOL discount is availble. Call the toll free reservation number for more info or reservation. They are very responsive.
Bkfitz - there is an ONB run shuttle from Gun Creek. I think they charge $20 or so per person for it, but they take you right to the beach club. You can find out timings when you make your lunch/dinner reservation with ONB.
I believe it runs at set times. When we were there they walked around the club towards the end of the afternoon to gather up any stragglers and make sure they didnt miss the last shuttle home!
Ok thanks we'll be on a 46' mono (party of 6) so we wont be able to get any closer than BEYC and shuttling 2-3 at a time might be a hassle. I've heard (pre Irma) there was a water taxi that operates from Gun Creek but I'm not sure if that's something ONB did or if it was private. We'll reach out closer to our week to see if ONB has any advise.
I don't have any knowledge on that particular cruise, but just curious, I didn't know whether you all have been on a cruise before? If not, a 21 day cruise seems kind of long to me, in case you don't like it. And those are all relatively small vessels. Not a huge amount to do on the ocean crossing, and I would do some checking about how rough to expect the ocean to be on that crossing. With regard to ATLANTIC crossings, I know that the time of year also figures in a great deal, as to how rough it can be. Glacier Bay is magnificent and Vancouver is a beautiful city. The rest of the ports I have no knowledge of at all. If you do decide to book the cruise, PLEASE do it through a travel agent and not directly with the cruise line.
We're looking at the above cruise on Seaborn. It departs from Kobe, Japan, visits two ports in Japan, one in Russia, and then crosses the Pacific Ocean to Kodiak. From there it visits Glacier Bay and continues down the inside passage to Vancouver, BC. Has anyone on the forum done this cruise?
Pat, I don't know how close in CT you are to JFK, but can you not fly JetBlue non-stop to and from SXM?
Yes, we easily can and quite often do take the JB n/s flights in and out of JFK but we booked AA to SXM due to some left over ticket dollars from last years cancellations post Irma along with a really good Business Class fare sale we lucked into, and we were actually booked using the last of our AA ff miles for the flight home. The nice thing was, since we had to do a change somewhere via AA, we were booked SXM to CLT and into White Plains (HPN) which is about a 25 minute ride from home and without the hassles of JFK.
I'm leaving things alone for the time being since AA has assured me I can make changes down the road IF the preferred flights are returned to the schedule. And if not, I probably will end up booking JB n/s into JFK since we really do prefer to arrive back through T5 there.
Not SXM related, but I am so relieved that this is over! The amount of tension in my beloved city has been sky high - just sorry he chose the coward's way out & blew himself up - yes, it saved us tax payers money, but now we don't know if there are any undetonated packages out there, as well as his reason for doing what he did. The explosion on Sunday night was about 3 miles away from our home & we were on lockdown from 11:00 p.m. Sunday until about 10 a.m. Monday. Now on to a beautiful, sunny spring day!
