  1. The angling of that last photo makes the ship look small at first glance!
  2. How about thinking about it this way. Someone pays for a balcony room. Never or rarely uses it (I can take loads of photos down the ship and show many empty balconies). Would you ever argue that others should have access to that area? Now the havana area is a big balcony that we all paid grouply into (I'm sure there's a word for this). Why should we allow others to use an area we paid for? Mardi gras will have the new Loft 19 with it's own pool area, why not pay the extra to bring your children into that area or book the suite that includes it?
  3. Majority of tour operators refund you if they have to cancel due to weather. I alway prefer to prebook to make sure I am with a reputable operator and have an idea of what I'll be getting. I'm sure there will be something available tho at the pier. But jet skiing might not be.. that's always the best going out there! 🙂
  4. We booked over a year in advance to snag one of the only 4 person interior havana rooms (was only $100 more pp than regular interior) for the chance to have a less crowded area. After see the room size I hope we four girls survive this cruise lol.
  5. We dont go until Dec. But we decided to do something closer to port since that's a 2 hr drive to get to. We will plan to do it later when we can visit Ohio rios.
  6. If you plan on using the couch as a bed don't do it, super uncomfortable.
  7. Did you say your port is Ochio's Rios or Montego Bay? If you're planning on doing the falls/blue lagoon there's a really long drive time from Montego Bay. We were thinking about doing blue lagoon but with the 2hr drive there (and another 2 back) we decided to save that for a time we stop at Ochio Rios since it's closer to that port. Be sure to factor that in 🙂
  8. I used to use ear plugs when I roomed in with snorers but they got uncomfortable. So I moved to listening to music. You can search for them, but there's eye covers that have speakers in them. I just ordered one myself. On staying on deck over night, they do clean (hose down/pick up loungers) them in the evening and we were asked to leave areas before so they could work. So YMMV on where you can stay due to that.
  9. I asked about that my last cruise, they said it's now integrated with the excursion desk.
  10. Can also go towards your tips if you didn't prepay them.
  11. There seems to be more things to do around Ocho Rio than Montego Bay. But depending on what you want to do there's some interesting things around Montego Bay also.
  12. For the new tender ticket board, how soon do they put it out and where is it located?
  13. Don't forget you can get room service, coffee as you wake up.
  14. For anyone who has done this before, I understand the trip is 2 hours one way (so 4 hours round trip). My group REALLY wants to visit there but I'm concerned about timing. We are in port form 8am to 5pm at Montego Bay. Have people successfully booked this with a non cruise tour group with no issues on getting back to ship on time? If we are able to leave the port near the time we arrive around 8am, how much time do you think we might have on the way back to either each at Scothies or play at Margaritaville?
