So what do you expect when you book an excursion outside of the cruise ship? Not a pleasant, memorable experience you can brag about to your friends. But Phil? He's one of a kind, in a GOOD way. He's Pleasant Phil. He Paternal Phil. He...More

Natalie - my experience was Phil responded pretty quickly. We were there in February and he was very much in business. We also docked in Falmouth.
Hi Phil and Friends (who did tours with Phil and may know), We will be cruising in May 2017 on Liberty of The Seas, according itinerary we will be in Falmouth on May 11.. Docking is at 8am. 1. What time do you usually pick people up for Blue Hole/River Tubing tour? 2. How will we find you if we book via your web site? 3. Our child is 7yo, active - will Blue Hole/River Tubing be age appropriate for her (not too rough)? 4. In case Royal Caribbean changes itinerary and docks in Falmouth on a different day, how will it work with our reservation? Thank you!

Email Phil. He always answers within a few hours. He will take good care of you.
Does anyone know which beach Phil takes people to? I am wanting to stay away from the tourist crowds as much as possible, but not sure if that will be possible. Thanks!

Also to stay away from the crowds have him take you to the Blue Hole. It's much nicer then Dunn's River Falls and not touristy at all!!
