It would be idle if it catered for 12. We will just leave pyscho tom and asbo to their own devices. lol.

Hi and welcome to the forum , when you are on the island you will see posters in the reception areas and also they are sent around to the rooms.

It's freeeeeee the best kind of pricing haha! The idea is that they are used to free up the island for a few days with overbooking issues. It was the best thing we did (see my trip report from last June)

It is comfortable (not luxury) but we saw the most amazing sea life and snorkeled in some lovely clear waters stopping at a sandbar in the middle of the ocean for refreshments! And the beach BBQ was amazing

We were also treated to an upgrade from JBV to JWV for the "inconvenience" of having to leave the island. All on our cruise got bumped up one level on their accommodation

Yes indeed there'll be a clipboard you sign up on just speak to reception the signs are normally on the reception desk-we wouldn't have gone because of the footy (I was under strict orders from the OH!) but that night england got knocked out so we signed up that night!

We asked then before signing up about what accommodation we'd return to as we wanted to make sure we came back to a JBV then they said JWV so we said where do we sign haha!

You will be asked to pack a small bag (think holdall/rucksack sized) and pack your luggage back up the main luggage is put in to storage and you take the small bag with you. Don't panic you really don't need much-swimwear, some lightweight clothing, suncream, sunglasses, hat, toiletries...if you get to go reception leave you a letter telling you what to pack/what time to meet and so forth

Fingers crossed for you!

Hello,

Can I just ask- If we get to do this cruise, where do we put our suitcases? I am assuming our room would be used while we are gone (we are staying in a beach villa) due to over crowding, and I doubt our suitcases would fit on the boat!!

Thanks

You are asked to leave your case outside of your room on you departure for the cruise... it will be taken and secured in a transit room with your original room number on a tab, when you return you pop into reception tell them you have been on the cruise, they give you your new room key and away you go......

Your luggage will a have your new room number on it and will be dropped off at the villa, no need to id it as when you arrive...Meeru have it all sorted.

If you need a safe to store passports etc then they have safes similar to the ones in the villas situated in a side room...

What a report.


If that does not encourage people to book up then nothing will. I will agree with Maggie on one thing. To pay for a trip like the above would cost a packet.
