My fiancee and I are planning on honeymooning at PI this summer and are very excited, especially after hearing so many excellent things about it and reading all of the raving reviews. We plan to fly in to St. Thomas on Monday where we will transfer to Peter Island, stay at PI until Saturday (do the VG day trip and Wine Dinner on Thurs.), when we will catch the boat back to St. Thomas to spend our final night there. We will be flying back on Sunday.
My question is this - While I know the resort packages do include meals but not alcohol, will we be "nickel & dimed" during our stay? Obviously, this is not going to be very budget-minded trip, however we are wanting to keep things reasonable. I am just trying to get an idea of what kind of additional charges people have incurred during their stays, on things like wine & other beverages, tipping, etc. I suppose we are moderate drinkers, in that we will probably be having a few cocktails or beers during the afternoon, wine with dinner, and maybe even an after-drinner drink or two a couple of nights. We are planning on stopping in Tortola to stock up on wine and liquor as others have mentioned.
Basically, I am curious to find out how much extra I am going to spend after paying for the package, airfare, and other fixed costs.
Thanks in advance!
