    Thanks for the info....will be purchasing tickets in November for our January, 2020 visit to the Tropicana. Hope you enjoyed your visit!!
  2. I made my January 2020 Sunrise reservations in January 2019 and was notified in two days. Getting the Sunrise out of drydock in June probably has many details that will be worked out. First rule of cruising...PATIENCE.
  3. Since you enjoyed a wonderful tour....I am curious what the tip should be for the driver and the guide. We are doing a three hour tour in Jan, 2020. They have quoted us 120CUC but I don't know what would be an appropriate tip amount. Thanks for your suggestions.
  4. My last experience with ordering lobster was abysmal. The texture was rubber and I am positive that my boiled "croc" would have delivered more flavor. No thanks...fooled me once...well, you know the rest.
  5. My life has been forever changed! The pens were a nice non functioning souvenir.
  6. It is hit and miss with CCL. I have had them provide a gallon at no cost and other times, I have had to pay a very nominal fee. Don't take your own...it will be an extra burden to endure.
  7. Does anyone know of accommodations that Chef's Table makes for AA, aka Friends of Bill members.
  8. We have found that the Chef's Table consists of many VERY SMALL portions. Since this is a two or more hour adventure, pacing yourself isn't that difficult. Also, you do NOT need to finish every presentation. Be sure to bring your camera...every plate is a work of art.
  9. Thanks....going to purchase on line also and was wondering how they handled this. Since you can't use your VISA CC card IN Cuba, I also was wondering how you can purchase on line with your VISA CC card.....?
  10. Wouldn't it be nice if they also offered a shareholder only cocktail get together sometime during our cruise?......just a thought.
  11. I have been wondering the same.....but I still have until next January to make an informed decision.
  12. I always give our steward a twenty when we first meet. They will NEVER forget you...and it works every time we have done this. Not only did they get us ice....it NEVER had time to melt since if we used some, when we returned to our cabin, fresh ice was either added or replaced entirely.
  13. IF you are lucky, it might get aboard. Mine was packed in checked luggage; it was confiscated and returned to me at disembarkation. They left a note in my luggage of what property was taken in security. ALL LUGGAGE goes in the scanner and if they see the cord...which they will, the bag will be opened and confiscated.
