Headed to CTI in Dec 09, have a lot of questions!!
my BF and I are headed to CTI in December and are SO excited!! Trying to loosely plan our week and I was wondering the following:
1) How long is the Dunn's River Falls trip? I know it leaves at 9am, when can we expect to be back?
2) If there is no mini-bar in our room, would we be able to grab a few drinks at the bar and bring them back to our room and enjoy our ocean view?
3) How long is the Cat cruise?
4) My BF is a very picky eater, will the buffets have plain food like burgers/chicken fingers/pasta?
5) Are there shops in the hotel to buy gifts or anything?
Any info and insight on CTI would be greatly appreciated!!

Wanted to add - if you want to pay for a special trip to Dunns River falls and are the adventerous type, there is a 8-10 person jeep that takes you off into the beautiful mountains before heading to Dunns River falls. It is great but unlike the regular bus ride to Dunns River falls (which is free), this costs money but I think is worth it. See the front desk person in the lobby for more information.
there is such a variety of food that there is something for everyone. One night a week (Fridays) - they have lobster night, if you like lobster - it is available at all restaurants but served differently at each location.
As for activities, don' try to cram a bunch of stuff in on your first stay, take time to relax also. Need to visit the spa and buddah pool - very relaxing.
If you take the shopping trip into town on the regular scheduled bus, you can also venture out of the little shopping area to visit the Island Village too or for the more open minded, to the local market. We take a cab into town too to be able to spend more time visiting the local shops - always come back home with a carving to add to our collection. The market at Couples on Mondays is good too - we bought a few things there when we visited this past August.
We stayed this time for two weeks and weren't ready to leave. We did the Jamaican Bobsled, Dunns River Falls and the off road trip to 8 Mile. We had a great time, as we always do, our 5th trip and already have reservations for next year and in the works of getting the reservations for 2011 - for two weeks. One day, we may just never leave!!!
Have a great time!!!
