  1. Thanks all! Iā€™m in the process of booking the 8 day southern Caribbean šŸ™‚ Iā€™m so excited!!!
  2. Thanks everyone! Looks like southern caribbean is the winner šŸ™‚
  3. Do you mean something through resort for a day dot com?
  4. I was thinking the southern ports are better too because Grand Turk and Amber Cove are a dime a dozen out of eastern Florida. I can also hit those up on a shorter, therefore much cheaper, sailing.
  5. It's 15 drinks on Cheers. Anything over will have to be purchased, but will have to be done before drink 15.
  6. WWYD? I previously asked for opinions on Breeze vs Dream, but I found a different itinerary that I am interested in. Breeze - 7 night eastern caribbean: Amber Cove, St. Thomas, San Juan, Grand Turk, 2 sea days Magic - 8 night southern caribbean: Aruba, Curacao, La Romana, DR, Amber Cove, 3 sea days Price is within a few bucks of each other, looking at an oceanview guarantee on both. Magic is a few extra hours drive to Miami (Breeze is PC) which would involve me driving the day before and spending money on a hotel, but since price is the same for an extra day, that's a wash to me based on a per-day rate. It will be me (female) with my 2 young daughters, 8 and 13, if safety is an issue at any of the ports. We really, really want to go to Aruba, and the ship is in port all day (9am-11pm), so it seems like a no brainer, but it makes me wonder why the 8-day isn't substantially more money. Dates are exactly the same.
  7. How far is the walk from Puerto Mayo to downtown?
  8. I was just on Liberty a week ago, and it prints the "alcohol count" on the receipt once you hit 10.
  9. I wonder if they are just cracking down on it? There's still the option to have beers delivered to your cabin.
  10. Ecstasy embarks and disembarks from deck 7, Empress deck. The best deck to have on a fantasy class ship IMO. Enjoy your cruise šŸ™‚
  11. Yes. After I have been told I hit 15, I was able to order water and diet coke instead.
  12. The receipt you sign will start letting you know once you hit 10 drinks. I just sailed a week ago, and I was looking for the number to show up on the sea day, lol. Agree - definitely easy to hit 15!
  13. I am curious when you have tried to PAY for a drink off Cheers? I have read recently that the bar tenders no longer allow you to do this, but I was able to buy myself a bucket when I cruised in June. I wasn't messing around though - I ordered the bucket around noon because I knew I was going to hit 15 on that day (it was a sea day). I also had a 4-pack bucket of beer delivered to my room that I ordered pre-cruise. I had called Carnival about it before I sailed because I was curious about it and the effect, if any, on Cheers. I was told "those are room beers and do not count towards the 15 drink limit".
  14. I've never sailed on Conquest, but I have sailed on Liberty (same class) twice. I also sailed on Ecstasy (fantasy class) and sailing on Sensation next month. I am curious what everyone likes so much more about Conquest? I liked the Ecstasy a lot more than Liberty, but I don't know if it's because it was 5-days versus 3-days or because it's smaller. I did enjoy the feel of the smaller ship.
  15. I'm sailing on her in March and we all have FTTF as well. Do you recall what time you got to the terminal? Did you park at the port? If so, about how long is the walk from the parking garage to the terminal?
