  1. The port is Miami. The port is in between our hotel and the airport.
  2. Is it ok to drop off our luggage a few hours before our check-in time? We need to take our rental car back to the airport, and were thinking it would be easier to drop the luggage instead of reloading it into a taxi.

    Thanks for your post and congratulations on your weight loss. I have been taking Contrave for four months and have only lost 6 lbs. I still think about food a lot and always feel hungry. I am wondering if this is just not working for me. Thanks for sharing! Have fun on your next cruise.
  4. Thanks everyone for the info. Since we weren't in any of the ship's excursions and have heard there is not a lot to do on this island, we decided to rent a car for the day. We were trying to find a rental company that was either at the pier or close to it.
  5. Anyone happen to know which port Insignia might dock at in Fort de France?
  6. Keep checking with O to see what number you are on the list and if you are moving up the list. Check a few days before and the day of final payment to see if there have been any cancellations. Good luck!!
  7. Recently, we were in 8001. There was noise from the hallway. This cabin is right next to the door that some of the crew uses to go to their cabins. The door would slam and sometimes people would stop to talk to each other. They must change shifts around 5:30 am. We were woken up several times.
  8. Has anyone tried this? If so, what was your experience as far as wright loss and side effects. Thanks,
  9. We stayed in 8000, but on Insignia. We booked late and it was the only penthouse left. I have a terrible time with seasickness and I felt it even more staying in this cabin. I don't know what the difference might be on the bigger ships. We also experience noise from the crew coming and going through the door right next to our cabin. It was not a big deal, but they do start their days early and sometimes the noise of the door and the talking woke us up. I would suggest taking some meds and sea bands just in case.
  10. Does the Marriott have chairs and umbrella for day pass people? How far is it from the cruise port?
  11. Thank you Gail and Jim. I am going to email them tomorrow to make a reservation. I will be sure to tell them you guys sent me.
  12. HI. I am researching things to do in Antigua and found your post. Could you please tell me more about this beach? Do they rent chairs and umbrellas. Is there a restaurant? And are there restroom facilities? Thank you for your help, Kathy
  13. Thanks everyone. I think I have it figured out. I appreciate your help.

    DC to Miami

    Thanks everyone. We decided to make our own arrangements and go a day early.
  15. We just booked a cruise that has been deeply discounted due to the Cuban ports being cancelled. Before I asked my TA what the deal is, I wanted to ask CC people. The cruise fare w/o air is $998.00 pp. The taxes and fees are $751. Can anyone explain why the taxes are so high. Thank you for your help.
