We also went to an artificial tree years ago. Paid a premium for a very realistic Balsam Tree and it has held up very good. Still looks like the day we bought it.

We have Global Entry and TSA Pre-Check and have done more international connections in MIA then I care to count. The one thing we learned very early on is not to use the "Connecting Flights" security checkpoint that just to the left as you exit the Customs Hall since that area (as GaKaye experienced) does not have a dedicated TSA-Precheck line. Do as foreversxm suggested in an earlier response. and make your way to the main terminal area (where the airline check-in counters are located0 and go to one of the regular security checkpoints as the have dedicated TSA-Precheck lines that are the same as found at all US airports. Because of the convoluted way you have to go to get to the main terminal area and the location of the entrance points it will take about an 8 to10 minute walk but you'll avoid the extremely long and slow moving lines at the "Connecting" security checkpoint. We normally make our way to the Security entrance for Terminal E as the lines there always seems to be short or even non-existent.

Nice to hear someone speak up with that opinion because I totally agree. They can't live with just one DJ blasting noise, boom boom boom techno euro crap but now advertising THREE DJs! It's HORRIBLE and they are a huge nuisance to have in the area. We stay up the road and they have the GALL on busy days to close their gates to force their customers to park up the road blocking other homes and condo parking then open their gates once the road if full of their customers! We and others have called the police about the noise and others need to also ,,,,plus customer type bring in a lot of problems very late into the night. At that noise level Daytime is bad enough but after 8pm or 9 pm is just rude and should be illegal but the owner just does not care. ITs not a party for everyone.

David haven't spent to much time a RP other than the pool bar "of course" But Mrs. Whale Tail went down to the fitness room this morning thought it was top notch and peeked in the laundry facilities and said it was very clean and the staff here is very friendly. We are planning to stop at Captain Dee's Rib shack and split an order at some point. Mrs. Whale Tail says hello back at ya.
No there is no BSV this trip other than walking pass it on our Simpson Bay walks. Although we have had 2 meetings with a couple of people here regarding our spring tip to BSV and the arrangements have all been made for our spring trip. Looks like it will be pretty cool. Remember keep it under your beach umbrella.

I could not stop trying to step down/up in "our" unit#1 But there still a step up/down to the guest bathroom!! LOL!!! Have a great time!! BTW, we went to that lil shop after having an amazing breakfast at the Morgan, (SALT) and they were sold out of baggetts. 10am!! The owner offered to bake some if we wanted to wait! We thought that was very nice of him, but full from our lovely meal! Good to see that there are other options for breakfast nearby BSV!!

While we've used mrsimcard on several trips and overall been happy with them, be sure to read the notes about what calls are free and what is charged. Incoming are free but you do get charged for outgoing calls and texts and there are data limits.

Our Verizon plan for $10 a day (only when used) let us get covered by our home plan.

How is the sand at the 2 Cupecoy beaches today. We’re thinking of going there tomorrow.

Mary - As several others have said, best to book early and expect changes. I have had my reservations for June 2023 since they became available and expect numerous changes.

If you can use apps/data to communicate back home that would be ideal. I am a big fan of WhatsApp (mentioned above). Just load it onto your phone before you travel. Once you put in the new SIM card, WhatsApp will as you if you want to stay with the old phone number (always Yes) and that way all your WhatsApp contacts will still be able to reach you.

Speaking from experience, even receiving one phone call with Rogers will trigger the $15 Roam Like Home Charge - you may have to disable that before you leave.

Edit - just notice your dates. Oops. Hope you had fun

St. John is an eye-opener if you're accustomed to the BVIs. The National Park makes it unique. It also minimized the opportunities to eat on shore. We like Christmas Cove as a lunch spot and snorkeling. Glad the weather worked out ok!

Cheers, RickG

We had Jeannie stock our room in February and again this time. I was surprised that she didn't have to meet us at the room like in the past so it would appear Divi has changed their policy.
It is a wonderful service she offers. It is nice to not have to worry about getting food when you get in after a long day of traveling (and dealing with SXM airport).
The little grocery here at Divi cannot possibly compete with Jeannie's service. They don't offer a fraction of what she does.

Today, 6 ships are in. As I am typing Voyager of the Seas is docking. WHY OH WHY are the passengers of cruise ships so damned loud when they are on the beach here at Divi? Seriously. It is beautifully serene until cruise ship passengers come and are loud and boisterous!!!

If Delta would run this route on the A220-100 it would be a dream come true.

Tom--Thanks. I doubt I would have 6 people there anyway. I wouldn't be personally that bothered about the rocky beach, as I enjoy just being on the water and am more a pool person.

I used to LOVE the Sandbox. Best bushwackers and fish bites. I can't remember the last time it was open when we have been there. Last time we went to Prickly Pear we decided we liked it better closed. Brought our own cooler ashore, let the dog run around and went back for lunch on the boat.

We enjoyed a bottle of Lambrusco with our friends at Caterina's suggestion last night and really enjoyed it. I probably haven't had a bottle of that since college, but it was great as it had just a little chill on it. I'm still thinking about the lasagna and carbonara...we ordered both and then split them up. Scratched all itches. Wasn't that busy, so Caterina had time to come out and visit. A special evening at one of our absolute favorites SXM or otherwise.

We do too Kim! Hope things pick up for them in the high season..very few customers each night we've been there. Great spot, especially if you're a craft cocktail lover. Ask for a smokey colada.
