We did the same cruise at Christmas the local taxis are all great and will take you anywhere but agree a fare first the more of you in a taxi the cheaper it is.St maarten just take the 10 min walk to beach (sun beds $5.00 each) Grand Turk beach right by ship Have a good time we did Jane.

I would say the best beach on St Maarten is Orient Beach. Taxis are safe, plentiful. Costs around $6-7 pp to get over there. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6oH9tAomGG4.

There is usually a small tourist office at the dockside in each port of call where you can ask about the nearest/best beaches. Then you can get a taxi to it- agree a price first though and even try to get others to share with you. The price given is normally the price per taxi so the more there are the cheaper it should be.

Friends of Dorothy!

By Robin Clarke

So I recently confirmed a Royal Caribbean cruise for a customer and his Husband.

With most cruise lines now catering for the LGBT market including a LGBT Community Mixer at the Champagne Bar on the Indepen...

Will Symphony of the Seas have...

Royal Caribbean’s 4th Oasis Class ship is about to grace us with her presence in a few months time but will she have the X Factor. It was announced recently that the biggest ship in the world will have some brand new features which sets her apart from her sisters.I for one am a big fan of Oasis Class after sailing on Allure of the Seas 2 years ago but the 6500 passenger vessel isn’t to everyone’s taste. For me Symphony will not only have the X factor but a huge emphasis on t...

What is it about Celebrity Cruises?

By Hannah Wilson

Hannah Wilson's blog

……… that I love so much! Apart from loving their fabulous ships which have a most luxurious feel about them that is? They realy are my favourite main stream cruise line, have been for a long time and probably will remain my favourite unless one of the other mainstream cruise lines really up’s their game.Of course it will come as no surprise to anyone that it is the food as much as anything that I love. For me, no other cruise line can touch Celebrity when it comes to f...
