Oh, put us in a Main Deck State Room. When we get closer, and if they are still available, we may consider one of the VIP rooms. Depends on how much overtime I work between now and March. :twist:

ok, a couple of questions (assuming everyone's not in Fiji)

the airport code for arrival is PLS ? (if so, looks like Spirit have a great deal from FLL)
...anyone staying an extra night to leave on sun - and if so any suggestions on a hotel ?

- what are the standard style tips on a liveaboard ?

......finally, if you're all in Fiji and i decided to come before 1 Nov, how would I pay ?

cheers

Stu, fingrabber is around and i believe she is taking care of business while they are away.

Thanks ZD! Only WW and Terri are in Fiji. I'll let fingrabber know to check out your post!! :teeth:

Hey Stu!!

the airport code is PLS...I don't know of anyone staying over, but that could change...in fact, I might do that myself!


There are a couple of ways to pay..you can send in a check...you can pay via Paypal...or you can fax in a credit card authorization form...the CC wouldn't be run until WW gets back...I'll be stopping by to check the mail and and the fax machine

finally, on the Saba trip last year, we tipped between $150 to $200 for the week and the crew divides the money up amongst themselves

we'd love for you to make this trip! and if you pay in full by November 1, you get free nitrox for the week! After doing 5 dives a day, by the end of the week you'll be glad your diving nitrox

Hey Stu...

10% is standard and customary on a liveaboard so the $150 to $200 number is about right. (However since tips are just that...you can tip whatever you want!)

Kim is right on the money about all the questions. If your cc auth is received by the 1st it will count. If your check is postmarked by the 1st it will count and if your paypal is dated by the 1st it will count!

Hope to see you join us! :o

Once I figure it out I'm going to PayPal in the full amount this weekend. I'm going for the free nitrox!

Now I'm not so totally jealous of everyone leaving for Fiji....who am I kidding, of course I am!

Hey girl...you can also pay via credit card now. Look in the payment options in the main thread and you'll see the details for how to do it!

Kamala,
are there still upper rooms available or other
dennis :o
I really was heading north, I just went the long way around.

Stu,

I was just in T&C at the first of Oct. I sayed at The Sands and it was great. It was a bit pricey but everything in T&C is a bit pricey. I heard good things about The Royal West Indies as well. Some people I dove with stayed there and really liked it. In a more moderate category is the Comfort Suites but I have heard both good and bad about it. Here are some addresses to the hotels.

Great! I'm sure you'll still have a spot...but perhaps not the cabin choice! Hope we see you on this trip! It will be awesome! -ww
