  1. Cruising out of Port Canaveral in 36 days with 3 family member retirees, all in good health. No plans to adjust anything, and cant really see a scenario where I would choose to not to go. A lot can happen in 5 weeks, so we shall see, but right now I'm still very excited!
  2. Shoot. I'm sorry you had that experience. I'm going Easter weekend so I'll go in expecting to wait around. Thanks for the heads up!
  3. Stayed at the Sagamore in October...it was lovely and not super pricey. Beachfront, art deco, nice area to walk around/buy sunscreen, & even had a balcony. 🙂 Have a great cruise!
  4. Thanks for the chart, that's very helpful! To verify, friend would definitely stay in hotel with me if she was parking there. She was undecided...if it wasnt too much more $$, she would have driven down the night before to the hotel with me. But, since there is a much cheaper option for parking by itself looks like I'll have a solo night (in a different cheaper hotel) and my travel buddies will drive in the day of. Thanks again!
  5. Hi all. Have a weird scenario, but I think my main question is...what are the parking options at Port Canaveral? 4 of us cruising on the Breakaway in April. (2 cabins) 1 person, me, flying in the day before. Renting a car, getting a hotel. 2 people, driving from Western Florida, driving to port the day of the cruise. 1 person driving down from Jax the day of, maybe. As I can find, there are 3 parking options. 1. Pay $300 for a hotel for 2 with parking, Jax person can hotel it with me. (This seems like the priciest option so probably least likely) 2. Park off site for about $60 for the week. Involves a shuttle to and from your car. 3. Park very close to port for about $140 for the week. Can walk, I think, to and from the car. Is there something I'm missing? We are looking for the most economical solution for the drivers. All 3 drivers are retired, if there's a senior discount anywhere. Is there a downside to the offsite parking besides the fact that it is offsite? Thank you in advance 🙂
  6. Fantastic. Thanks for the quick response.
  7. Hi all. I'm cruising on the Breakaway out of Port Canaveral in April. My aunt is my travel buddy/roommate, but we are arriving seperately... from different places. (I'm flying in the day before, she is driving in the day of...she lives in FL) My question is, will they let me checkin/get on the ship without my roommate? Can we meet on the ship? Or do we have to check in together? Secondly, we are travelling with 2 others...I feel like we should join accounts somehow. Is there a benefit to this? Or is it not really needed, with the freestyle dining and whatnot (I've already made our specialty dining reservations)? I'm certain I'm overthinking and if nothing else we can text/call like normal while still in port. We like to plan so I thought I'd ask the experts (you).
  8. Cruising on the Breakaway in April, group of 4 in 2 rooms. I've never cruised on NCL...none of us have. I've made the reservations for our specialty dining, do we also need reservations for say, the comedian? How/when do we do that? I dont see much available on the app at this point. Can we just walk to the venue around 645 for the 7 o'clock show? I'd love to not have to reserve much, especially since their tagline is "Freestyle cruise". What else should I be looking into reserving? Any advice on what not to miss? Thankya!
  9. Not quite the same but I had a forward facing balcony in the Bahamas in October. Barely felt any motion up there but my goodness was it windy. I would definitely stay in a forward facing ocean view. Or a balcony anywhere else lol.
  10. Thank you! Sounds like there are no bad options 🙂
  11. Flying into MCO (Orlando). Is it better to stay by the aiport or cruise port...or does it not really matter? Awesome, thx, I'll check it out. I'm cruising with 3 others who will be driving from various places in Florida...hoping for a free place for them to park.
  12. Ah...all valid points. Thank you for the response! I'll chill out and play it by ear lol.
  13. Hi all. I've never cruised out of Port Canaveral before. Is there a free parking option? (3 of 4 in my party are driving) Also, I'm flying in the night before. Any hotel suggestions? Cruising in April, if that matters. Not sure if it'll be just me or all 4 of us yet.
  14. Cruising in April, one of my ports is GSC, but I gather our chances are about 50/50 that we will actually make it there. If you were scheduled to go to Great Stirrup Cay but couldn't, where'd you end up? Another sea day? Different port? If it was a different port, was there a chance to find an excursion or is it more of a last minute play-by-ear scenario? Thanks in advance!
