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.

Paying for a sunbed?

By Lisa West

Would you pay to guarantee a sunbed??As you all know in the world of cruising if you want to have the best cabin on the ship in the best position then you pay for the privilege. The higher and more midship you go then the more expensive it is. Once your onboard and settled in to your cabin next stop is going up deck to find yourself a nice sunbed thats in a good position not too far from the bar in a nice sunny spot.Now as we all know if its a day at sea and youre not quick off the blocks so...

 Well I have finally got my money back for my Monarch flights!After the collapse in September last year, 5 months seems so long to wait for a refund.Its been a long wait and at one point I did wonder if I was going to get it back. The sad news last year left some holiday makers stranded overseas and out of pocket. The poor Monarch staff were left stunned and jobless.Monarch had been in trouble the year before and the high costs of fuel and stiff competition became too much for the busine...
