  1. I can't speak from experience, but I heard the Tiki Hut at Junkanoo beach is fairly cheap. They have all-day drink specials, and a 4 beers for $10 plus shots. I'm planning on hitting it up in January. You can walk to the beach from the pier.
  2. Wow! Thank you so much for that detailed review! I feel a lot better about this now. Do the tour guides hold up a sign or something so you can find them?
  3. What is everyone's experience with using Viator to book shore excursions? I found this: Nassau Shore Excursion: Island Highlights Sightseeing Tour for only $35/pp and it seems like a good tour. It says it picks up at the pier, but some of the reviews say they had to walk to the McDonald's. It hits every site that I want to hit (Rum Cake Factory, Queens Staircase/Ft Fincastle are on top of my list, but it also goes to Atlantis resort, the Graycliff Chocolate Factory and John Watling's Distillery), and then I won't have to walk it. Has anyone done this particular tour? It also seems like you can exit the tour at Junkanoo beach, and walk back to the ship when ready, and I had planned on going to Junkanoo as well. Below is info from the website: Departure & Return Departure Point Woodes Rodgers Walk, Nassau, The Bahamas Traveler pickup is offered Ports Prince George Wharf Return Details Returns to original departure point

Normal or oversized for class? - N/A Was wind a problem? - N/A If an aft cabin, was soot a problem? - N/A Any specific problems with this cabin? - None! Very quiet location, and no rocking Any other comments? - We were able to see the pilot jump back into his boat after the safety briefing from our cabin's window.
  5. Yes, I am aware that they all do the anytime dining, but that was more geared to responding to the comment about not pre-scheduling shows around dinner and not having a set schedule in general. I have not sailed on NCL yet. My sister did once, and she said it was the most awful experience ever, so it makes me nervous. Carnival and RC are more in my budget though.
  6. I am local to Jacksonville, and I am going to negate that one. The Jax port is not on the best side of town, and the park and cruise across the street has had "issues".
  7. Yup! 100%. And a post above shows why.
  8. Editing to update to current pricing after I saw a post above mine with a different number. According to Port of Miami website, it is $22/day.
  9. I am cruising with my sister and 2 girlfriends in March out of POM. I will be driving down from SE GA, but the others are flying in from NY and TX. We are staying at La Quinta Inn in FLL for around $100/night, and they have a shuttle from FLL airport. Original plan was to Uber/Lyft from hotel to POM, as the hotel will allow me to leave my vehicle for around $30. Hotels in FLL are a lot cheaper, so finding one with a shuttle and then taking an uber is a great option. I am just going to drive from FLL to POM and part at the port for piece of mind. I feel better about my car being at the pier, and the cost is comparable.
  10. Nope 😞 But if you would like to save your liver and a few dollars, you can wait until day 2 and buy it on board. That is the latest you can buy it though, and it doesn't save you much because it costs more on board. Unless you don't drink at all, or very little, on embarkation day.
  11. Yesss!! Totally agree. My kids and I love Guy's so much, that when I found a "secret burger sauce" (I think that's what it's called, might be "french fry dip") at my local WalMart, I say that it tastes like Guy Fieri's special sauce, lol. It's also why I choose Carnival's anytime dining - I don't want to decide 6 months in advance whether I want to eat at 6 or 8, EVERY night. And I may not want to stay up until midnight to make late dining and the show that follows.
  12. Agree - the line for this moves very slow, but it's made to order food, and should be expected. However, the wait is worth it, IMO. It gives the littles time to start their meal since they usually screw around during meal times, lol.
  13. Yes, all of what grandmanurse said!! The immediate cabin access is a huge plus with small children! At least you will have your own personal space for him.
  14. Are you always in Zone 1 because you are Diamond? I have an arrival appointment for Liberty in January, and I'm in boarding zone A04, no FTTF.
