    Planning a trip and currently staying at the CBR (Pirate Room) (Trinidad) What is your suggestion for close proximity to the Skyliner? Would another area be better? Our son and family will be staying at the Yacht Club and we will be using the Skyliner( hopefully ) for transportation back and forth.

      Denise, of the various booking options you have, booking a Pirate room is the best way to assure closer access to the Skyway. Some Jamaica rooms will be closer than some pirate rooms, but you can’t “book” Jamaica–only request it. Some Barbados rooms will also be closer, but here too you can’t book Barbados, only request it. Since a lot of people will have the same Jamaica/Barbados requests, your Pirate booking is the best.

    We stayed in the Aruba section July 24th. The room was great and loved the Murphy bed for our 7 year old. We really enjoyed the marshmellow roast on the island and the live band at the main beach. However, there was not a single pillow case in the room and no bedding for the Murphy bed. The worst was transportation issue. Both days we waited over 50 minutes to get buses to Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom. Even phone calls to dispatch didn’t seem to help. On the 25th, a transportation rep came out with a clipboard and walkie talkie. Eventually she got 2 back to back MK buses and finally 2 back to back AK buses.
