Then it's gonna be a expensive vacation :P

Figure $12-1300 per ticket, and, depending on what room/hotel you choose, it could be anywhere from $3-900 per night.

So a 7 night vacation, in a NON-OWB room would probably cost $4-5000.
Thanks.

+connections+seaplane, etc.
I'm guessing he wants to know total travel time.

I said "~18 hours flying" to avoid ambiguity, but I guess it didn't work :P

You would be correct in that assumption

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

@Dan
Looks stunning there, but it's seems that after 2 or 3 days, it may start to get a tad boring, unless you're really into the ultra relaxed vacation.
Agree or disagree?

Quote from: DD.com

After 2 nights and 3 days though I had done more snorkeling, kayaking, and swimming around than I needed to and was quite sore from it all.  I know most people come here from anywhere from 5-10 days but I would definitely get island fever long before then.  Iím not one to just laze around all day, though I did my share of that too.  Itís a long way to travel for just 2 nights but I experienced enough to know that I loved it and that Iíd return.  I didnít regret having just 2 nights, I was excited about being able to explore another city and eat from an actual kosher restaurant!

Thanks

Although, why the determination to return? Are the OWB really worth all the flying and the extra costs?
Seems like s/t I'd want to experience once.

And why MLE as opposed to Bora Bora, or someplace similar where they have OWBs?
