  1. I did this excursion (through Princess) several years ago. The catamaran doesn't dock on or near the beach. When we went, the only way to get to the beach was to swim. The water was deep where we anchored, so you wouldn't be able to walk. Please note, this was a couple of years ago. I don't know if the excursion has changed or not. I believe the vendor that the cruise lines use is Castaway Girl.
  2. We are disembarking the Vision of the Seas at the Pan American Pier on Saturday 2/29. Celebrity Summit will also be in port. How difficult will it be to get a Taxi or Uber to take us to Old San Juan for a few hours. Our flights aren't until after 3:00. There are three of us. We'd like to store our luggage at Barrachina and tour Old San Juan for a bit. Thank you!
  3. We will be sailing the Vision next month out of San Juan. Just wondering if anyone knows what time they start boarding? Thanks so much!
  4. Deck Six Midship dining room is open on embarkation - Cielo Dining Room
  5. Absolutely!!! I wouldn’t have it any other way! We will be for sure also doing Crown Grill and trying Le Mer!
  6. Oh gosh I'm so sorry!!! It's always terrible to have to cancel a cruise! Thanks so much for following along!
  7. You sure can. When my sister made her EZAir reservations for a sailing from NYC to Fort Lauderdale, she stayed in Florida another month. Wasn't a problem booking her return for 30 days after her cruise ended. Enjoy Brazil...it's an amazing country!
  8. We are actually doing the HoHo bus on Saturday. We have early tickets to see inside Sangrada Familia and then will take the bus. I LOVED Barcelona when we were there in 2017 so I'm really looking forward to being back again! So funny about your shower in Copenhagen. We were there in 2016 and I SWEAR the shower in the hotel we stayed at was smaller than the one on the ship!
  9. We loved the Hotel Lleo two years ago. The rooms were huge (by European standards). The bathroom had one of the biggest walk in showers I've ever seen in a hotel. The rooms were clean, service is great and the prices is exellent. It's only a couple of blocks off of Las Ramblas, so you don't have all of the noise, but you have the proximety. And the breakfast buffet was amazing! Barcelona is such a great city. So much beautiful architecture to see (Gaudi was something else). Looking forward to seeing insde Sangrada Familia on this trip!
  10. Hi All, I've started a blog and will be posting from my TA on the Sky Princess - Barcelona to Ft. Lauderdale. We leave tomorrow for Barcelona and board the Sky Princess on Sunday. Would love to have you follow along! http://confessionsofacruiseaddict.blogspot.com/ Cheers, Natalie
  11. It hasn't been announced...I don't even believe they've announced the date of a formal christening ceremony.
  12. They are supposed to be rolling these out. Listed on the Soda Package information:
  13. Yes...or book two suites and I believe you would get three credits each!
  14. Absolutely! If EZ Air is allowing you to make a reservation for 9:25 am then yes, you should not have any problem getting to the airport on time!
  15. When we did this sailing on the Regal in 2016 Princess allowed a 9:30 AM flight departure through EZ Air. We opted for the Princess transfer to the airport because I'd read that taxis may ocassionally be problematic at the port. The early transfers were leaving by 6:00 AM. You'll should be fine with a 9:30 AM flight. Check and see what EZ Air allows!
  16. We are arriving in San Juan at 8:30 in the morning and are looking to do a short tour of Old San Juan prior to boarding the ship (Pan American Pier Vision of the Seas). Has anyone done this before? Do you have a tour company that you recommend? our other thought is dropping our bags off at the shop then taking a different taxi to Old San Juan. Just not sure how early they will take our bags. any help is greatly appreciated!
  17. We will be in Punta Cana in February on Vision of the Seas. Looking for recommendations for a beach day or all inclusive resort. Thanks in advance for your help!
  18. Will be in Tortola in February for the third time. Went to CGB the last two times and it's just too crowded. This time we'd like to try Brewers Beach. Can someone please advise the following: Cost of taxi from port to Brewers Availability and cost of loungers/umbrellas Availabiity of food and drink for purchase Thank you SO much! Cheers and have a great day!
  19. I priced matched two excursions on a cruise to Hawaii a couple of years ago. It was super simple. As it worked out, the one excursion was a total bust and we complained to the Shore Excursion desk upon our return (as did many others). Not only had we received the original refund (as OBC) we then received any additional 50% back (of the original cost). I wouldn't hesistate to price match again!
  20. Everytime I've sailed out of San Pedro I've always stayed at the Crown Plaza. It's clean, well kept and quiet. And super close to the port. I believe the shuttle is $5 per person (last time we opted to take an Uber). There is a Mexican restaurant right across the street where we had dinner and a dinner behind the hotel were we ate breakfast. Both good food and very good prices. I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again!
  21. We used an Uber from the port to LAX last year and it was super easy. A very short wait, not a problem getting a ride!
  22. Loving your review! We sail next week and can't wait to try MSC for the first time. Can you please tell us what cabin number you had? Thank you SO much!
  23. TRACIE!!!! So excited to see your "Live from" thread....oh how I love them! Glad you enjoyed your day at Tropicante. I just love Steve, and Oscar is the BEST! Hope you had the chicken and sour cream enchilada. They are to die for! Keep having fun! Natalie
