  1. I might have posted this before. Over ten years ago we were on a Carnival ship out of Fort Lauderdale doing a number of Caribbean islands. It was a sea day and we were sitting near the pool. We observed a woman removing her daughters bathing suit and changing her into shorts & a top. Wouldn't have been unusual except that the girl looked to be about 10 years old. Now, being nudists, it didn't bother us but we thought that it was inappropriate to expose this young girl in public.

    Curling Iron

    My lover brings one - never had a problem.
  3. I stopped bringing a suit or a sport jacket. I wear dress slacks and a golf shirt every night. On formal nights my lover wears a "dressier" dress. On our last MSC cruise (2016), on the first formal night, one "gentleman" at our table showed up in his "formal' tee shirt, shorts and flip-flops. So, you don't have to get too formal - country club dress is fine. BTW - we pack everything into two 26" suitcases and two backpacks.
  4. Always post a small review. Thanks:)

    Which pier?

    Does anyone know which pier at the Port of Miami does the MSC Seaside leave from?
  6. Thanks for all the responses. Think I'll bite the bullet and go for parking at the port - new car. We've gotten spoiled - one of our daughters lives 20 minutes from Port Canaveral - she drops us off - free parking at her house.
  7. Any recommendations for parking in/around port?
  8. This question has probably been asked many times. We usually cruise out of either Port Everglades or Port Canaveral but sailed out of Miami a couple of years ago and parking at the port was a nightmare. We only live about 2 1/2 hours from the port but this time we would like to arrive a day early and stay at a hotel with free parking for our cruise (7 days). Don't mind paying for a shuttle to the port if we have to. Any recommendations?
  9. This is the only problem I've with MSC. I called another number that I had gotten. Called at, for me, the ungodly hour of 8 AM. The woman took my info and I received an email the next day with the info I needed.

    Just booked a balcony cabin on the Seaside for 11/30/19. Looking forward to it. We had a great time on the Divinia a few years back - made good friends on that cruise.
  12. We've cruised with them once - November 2016 on the Devinia - and had no problems.
  13. I'll give it a try tomorrow - but 9 AM? I just got up and it's after 10. The only time I get up early is to go to the beach.
  14. We seldom get off of the ship. We enjoyed our prior MSC cruise on the Devinia. We've been to so many islands that after a while they all look the same. We've spent a week at a resort on Puerto Rico, a week at Club Orient on Saint Martin, a week at Puerto Viarta, a week in Rivera Maya and a few others but the cost and inconvenience of flying have us cruising instead.
