  1. You should be good if out of Miami. Hope you "had" fun!!!!
  2. Just found out I'll be going on a quickie 4 nighter on the Independence of the Seas out of Fort Lauderdale. I love this ship and would love to meet others for this pr- holiday cruise. Come one; Come all 🙂
  3. Hi Bob, Literally just off Ovation and was told that on our upcoming cruise (4 night Western Caribbean) that it's a Thermal Suite just like on Ovation. I've never been steered wrong by you so I'm hoping you are correct, again! Not a fan of the Thermal Suites myself.
  4. Just like Sherie said, Yes you can. We just got off Ovation OTS on Tuesday and we booked for only 2 but there were 12 of us there. Great to have others helping you. We finished with 9:07 to spare!!!!!
  5. Incredible story; something I'll definitely keep in mind! So glad it worked out (mostly) for you. Enjoy
  6. PC; The Sorting Hat is the answer I believe. Also, the Glass Museum looked absolutely amazing. Thanks for sharing.
  7. Good morning fellow cruisers, We leave next week for our TP cruise and just checking to see if any other "family" was joining us. First time sailing to Australia and very much looking forward to it. Happy Sailings Everyone !!!
  8. Thanks; heading there on a TP next week. I'll take a look.
  9. Following with great anticipation; we're on the following TP out of Hawaii. Thanks for sharing.
  10. Many great ideas; good luck choosing. I was proposed to on an excursion at the beach. We were on a tour and had a stop at the beach. We went to a private area where it happened 🙂 How about in a specialty restaurant. You could have the maitre'd work with you and get a nice table. At dessert, have the ring under a cloche that they can lift off and you can take it from there. Roses could be brought out afterwards, flowers and room decorations could be displayed in your cabin upon your return.
  11. I had not see that footage before; thank you for sharing. I leave in September for a TP and am very much looking forward to sailing on her.
  12. CruiszBug; sorry to hear of your disappointments. I'm on the TP coming up in September and was very anxious to try. Hopefully, for us, your's was a minority experience. I'm not the adventurous "foodie" type and if I only go once, I can say I tried it. Jamie's is good though, I must agree 🙂
  13. Included as everyone states but we always leave a little something for the wait staff.
  14. We've also done both Princess and Celebrity a number of times. I'd go with Celebrity too. While the food and the service is good on Princess, we've found that the service is dramatically better on Celebrity while the food seems to be a few notches above. We also do a lot of specialty restaurants so we're not comparing apples to apples. That being said, Celebrity is your best option; IMHO. Have fun.
