  1. Thanks for the info on this thread. I am traveling in May 2020 and have always done Caribbean cruises. I didn't know if it was possible to walk off the ship and grab transport on your own as you do in the islands. It is good to know there are some options. I found a good website for the Mediterranean in general for figuring out the transport options called: Mediterranean Cruise Ports Easy.
  2. I like the idea of "Taormina On Your Own" but Carnival lists this excursion as $70 for adult. Now I know about Euro/dollar exchanges but still isn't this a lot of money for transport per person? Am I missing something? Perhaps you paid less?
  3. I recommend PorttoPort Shuttle. Best price and very friendly service.
  4. Thanks for all the useful information on this board. I will be in Boston with Carnival on Sept 27 from 8am til 4pm. I would like options to explore on my own as I am traveling solo. Would like to walk/see the Freedom Trail. I am also interested in seeing Harvard or at least a gift shop selling their apparel. Would like to know how easy and inexpensive it might be to find transportation to get to Harvard for only 1 person (Is it worth my while). Or are there gift shops in the tourist areas around the Freedom trail selling Harvard apparel? I also enjoy historic (old) cemeteries and would like to know if there are any in the area worth visiting. Thanks in advance for any advice or help.
  5. Hello. Enjoyed this thread. I will be in Boston in September on Carnival. We are there until 10pm. Is the MBTA a good option for returning late in the evening? Can you enjoy walking around public areas after dark? I assume the public gardens close at sunset? I am not interested in a baseball game. I would like to just enjoy the city.
  6. Looking forward to trying Alchemy for the first time on the Breeze next week since I have Cheers for the first time.
  7. Love the kiss on the lips. It has some kind of mango puree in it. Very sweet. Very "tropical" to me
  8. I am sailing on Breeze on Feb 9 and already booked my spa pass. I love the T-pool. I love that it is kid-free and the sound of the water prevents conversation. It is so relaxing. I love to lie on the thermal benches staring out to sea and reading my book. Can hardly wait to board. The only thing missing is someone to bring me drinks with little umbrellas. (I know not a good idea probably).
  9. When my daughter was 15 she was in line to get off in port and a few people got between us. When they scanned her card, they did stop her. She said my mom is back there and I waived. I could have been someone she had just met - they were not that particular. Then, she was 15 not a young child.
  10. I really thought I liked mint until I tried my first Mojito. Turns out I like peppermint, as in peppermint mocha, york peppermint patties and Uncle Bob's peppermint candy. Can't stand the taste of fresh mint.
  11. Thanks for the advice about water. I had thought I would order some bottled water with my drink orders to keep on hand. I am accustomed to pre-ordering water but figured Cheers would cover that, too., I usually drink a lot of water while onboard anyway because I use the patch for motion sickness and it makes you thirsty. I didn't mention I also plan to take advantage of the coffee bar. The coffee on Lido is not very good to me. I am looking forward to trying some after dinner drinks and coffee drinks, too.
  12. Thanks for this. I just went and checked. Good to know how much I have.
  13. I didn't even know this was an option.
  14. I am doing Cheers for the first time on my Feb 9 Breeze Cruise. I have never been a big drinker so would like to take this opportunity to try new things. My tastes generally follow - sweet (not dry) wines and fruit cocktails. I am not a fan of Tequila. I have a list of cocktails to try but would also like to know about different spirits and wines to try. I am looking forward to the Alchemy bar, too. Thanks in advance for your suggestions.
