Just wondering if any of you have been there?
Always adding potential islands to my list to visit...

No, but it looks interesting, although it appears to be far more developed than SP. Been to Grenada once and it was so so. This looks like it could have possibilities. I would imagine that airfare could be fearsome.

Actually with American frequent flyer miles it is a great deal. Only 25,000 miles to Barbados and then a short flight to Bequia for about $280.
The time it takes to get there could be troublesome if you are on a tight schedule.

I have been to Bequia but unfortunately can't tell ya much about it. It was 10 years ago while on a 13 day Windjammer barefoot cruise (which was fabulously fun). We were there for the day, I got off the ship after I woke up (afternoon) and other shipmates fed me drinks & shots of Everclear (pure grain alcohol). I stumbled back to the pier to await the launch back to the ship but instead dove off the pier fully clothed & decided I could swim back to the ship (NOT). They dragged me out of the water & back on the pier until the launch arrived after convincing me the launch would not see me & could run over me. Once safely in the launch where they knew where I was I still tried to jump out & swim. Took a few large crew members to keep me onboard to the ship which once onboard I passed out. :rolleyes: laugh

How about Fiji?Anyone ever been/tried to live/work there?I gather it's hard to stay longer than 30 days.
Same questions for Sey Chelles??
I've heard only the best things about Bequia and the Grenadines too.

Well heck, since everyone is about Hoboken, N.J.? Is there a nightlife? What should I bring and what should I not bring? Is there a beach? Can I go topless? oh, and how much will this all cost me? eek

Lee - Glad you got the note. Just wanted to say hi. We actually came in twice as my friend had to come back and buy a print she saw. Great stuff!

The Windjammer cruises look like a blast. Maybe a combination cruise and land vacation to be able to see more of islands.

Seychelle is one of those places that you need a really long vaca to visit. It would take me two days just to get there. Somehow I think it would be well worth it. smile

Hoboken has changed for the better.I would have said bring a brick in your purse.That was years ago.
Toppless?Hmm...I guess in the strip clubs smile

Sey Chelles:Ditto.I think that would call for a loooong vacay!

Well Denny actually they begged me to come back. LOL. Other than that one night I was usually the life of the party. Islenutt the Windjammer cruises are a blast. The ships are small, eat dinner barefoot, 5pm everyday is free rum punch happy hour. Since they are small ships they can get into ports & small islands the large cruise ships can't. If you want to steer the ship, raise the sails you can & if you want to do nothing you can. You sail mostly at night & every time the sails are raised they play a cd with various versions of Amazing Grace. Would love to do more myself but can't get anyone to go with me & the single supplement prices for cabins is a little pricy for me. Have considered one of their single cruises & just getting matched up in a cabin with whomever. They used to have a great message board also coconutelegraph & get togethers in Miami before some single cruises.

Living in Houston & also loving Belize it's so much easier to get on that 2 1/2hr. non stop flight than the flights from hell to the Windjammer that took from 7am CDT to 11pm EST through Atlanta & Miami with delays in Miami. Paid for the "stow away night" onboard & party before sailing the next day but got to the ship after 11. Still had free rum punch though so started the party. :rolleyes:
