I have major virgin series of questions... It will be obvious to you that I have never been on a cruise at all, let alone an Olivia cruise. I am very excited and wanting to read and learn as much as I can before we go. But we just booked this past weekend and don't have our booking numbers to go onto the Holland America site to even begin to calculate what the off ship days could cost. Each one of the off ship days is very long.
Obviously you can't walk back into the ship, (I see it's way out there, and I didn't see any pictures of the boats that bring us in. but once you leave do you have to stay off the ship the whole time? Can you go back early or go back and forth once to break up the day? Especially at Half Moon Cay.. I love the beach but I don't know I can stay out there from 8am to 2pm. Especially on a budget when nothing on land is included. Since this trip happened as a last minute splurge, we haven't saved to spend alot beyond the cost of the cruise.
And part two of this..Is anyone left behind or does everyone go If for some reason we chose not to go to the beach (after all the sun is shining at the pool too) are there events and things to do all day during the excursion days, or do you have to leave the ship?
thanks in advance for answering my big convoluted questions!!!
