  1. I agree and will make this request for future voyages. Thanks for the info, Zimmy!
  2. Does this vary between TAs? We have only received emailed paperwork to print and sign ourselves.
  3. Pirate, are you on the SD1 March 2 sailing? If so, we will see you onboard!
  4. Our TA's package of perks always includes a spa credit, so I just have to force myself to go to the spa each trip. 😉 I have enjoyed the aromatherapy and deep tissue massages, but would not repeat the traditional Thai massage. My fault for not knowing what it entailed - the therapist climbed on my back and used her knees (and feet too, I think!) to work on my back. For me, it crossed the line to pain, and I almost asked her to stop. Thankfully, it transitioned to a more typical massage for the second half! The spa therapists are so nice and eager to please. I look forward to spending time in the spa when we are on SD 1 next month!
  5. I had to consult with Tiki_Man on this one, because he is the earlier riser prone to get a cup of coffee and wander the decks while I get dressed in the morning. He notes that on our previous SD sailings, the published 9:00 time was when tender service to the port commenced. He recalls that ships were generally still underway until 8:00-ish. Also, he reports that coffee is usually available at TOY Bar starting at 6:00--6:30, if you would like to be caffeinated for your morning wanderings! Lookimg forward to sailing with you!
  6. Fantastic! We can't wait! It will just be my husband and me this trip, celebrating a week away from work. :) Y'all have picked a great way to celebrate, looking forward to meeting your group.
  7. Which sailing are you considering? We are on March 2 on SDI embarking in STT and disembarking in SJU. Would love it if you are sailing with us! BTW, if "OKC" is what I think it is, I was born at St. Anthony's Hospital! Sent from my iPad using Forums
  8. Thanks for the info. I am really not too bothered with the cabin we have now, but will still hope to improve our lie! And no, we will not be in St. Thomas pre-cruise. We will fly direct from ATL to STT on embarkation day. (Not my favorite plan, but work schedules require!) Sent from my iPad using Forums
  9. Anyone sailing with us? And does anyone have experience with staterooms convertible to Commodore Suites set up as regular cabins? Does the removable wall effectively block noise, or is it like being in a hotel room with connecting door? Our TA has waitlisted us for a regular stateroom, but just in case would like to know what to expect. I am sure we will have another wonderful SD cruise no matter where we end up!

  10. We did the 10-day Itinerary for our 25th in 2013 and would definitely suggest the longer cruise, since you will be flying half way around the world to get there. We had booked the night before at IC Tahiti through PG and were upgraded to an OWB. Wish that we had been able to enjoy it for more than 12 hours. Even for such a short time, it was a fabulous experience! Sent from my iPad using Forums
  11. We have been to Isla Passion twice, both on ship excursions. One time was by "motor catamaran", which was essentially a large ferry boat. The other was by Twister boat, which was a high speed thrill ride leaving everyone soaked! (The ride back to the ship was not so fun for those who had over indulged in beverages!) We loved the beach, food and drink at Isla Passion, but have switched to Nachi Cocum for our most recent visits to Cozumel. IMHO it's just as nice, but cheaper and much easier to get to!

  12. The .woman in Cabin 10 is a mystery/thriller set on a small ultra-luxury ship. I enjoyed it, but it is surely not representative of a typical cruise experience! Sent from my iPad using Forums
  13. Delta got us to STT ahead of schedule, so we are sitting in the shade at Crown Bay waiting for 2:00 embarkation. As he rode by on his bike to return to the ship and put on his whites, Silvio (maitre’ d) waved and said hello to us, calling us by name, As Tiki_Man said to me, that is what makes the difference! We are looking forward to a great week meeting Piaa and BCinMA! Sent from my iPhone using Forums
