  1. Thank you @perakcruiser for your help! I contacted the hotel on Facebook and the day pass prices were a bit high so we did not visit. I will say the person I messaged with on Facebook was very nice.
  2. @perakcruiser do you know the names of any of the private beaches in Cozumel by the port? I don't mind buying a few drinks so we can avoid the taxi ride to another beach. Thank you.
  3. Thank you @runner15km this is very helpful. Do you know how far away Paradise Beach club is from the port in Cozumel? We have young kids and don't like the idea of a cab with no car seats. I recall a taxi ride in a port many years ago that did not have proper seat belts for any of the passengers...
  4. Hello, can anyone recommend a nice family-friendly beach that is walking distance from one of the ports below? We would like to visit a beach but prefer not to use a taxi. Thank you!
  5. Thank you for your review and replies to many questions, here are two more. 🙂 Do you recall if passengers are allowed to bring bottled water on board (24 pack of bottled water)? Also, did you use the walking track? I saw on the website that the walking track is on one of the upper decks with minimal shade. Is there another area/walking track that is shaded?
  6. Thank you for sharing. This sounds like a great plan for us as well.
  7. Sorry, I think I found my own answer in the "fine print": Item allowance must be used all together in a single delivery
  8. I have another question, who knew laundry could be so complicated? 😉 When looking at the various packages online, specifically the "BACK HOME CLEAN - 40 PIECES", does this mean you have to send 40 pieces at one time or can you split it over the time of the cruise?
  9. Thank you! Can't say I'm not disappointed, but at least I won't be surprised....
  10. Hello, I am researching laundry options on the Meraviglia for a 7 day cruise. We sailed on Holland America recently and they had a laundry package where you paid one fee and could send laundry for cleaning every day. Does MSC have a similar package? Thank you.
  11. Yes, it was a nice surprise to have the same day service. We were able to give laundry on Saturday morning (last full day on the ship) by 9:00 and it was completed and back in our room later that day.
  12. Hello! I wanted to update the post as we were on the Nieuw Amsterdam last week. I brought two sets of ice packs on board. Whatever packs we were not using in the cooler in our refrigerator were kept in the medical center freezer. We visited the medical center once in the morning and once in the evening to pick up one set of ice packs and drop off the other other set. We kept the medication in our room in the refrigerator in a cooler with ice packs and a gallon size Ziplock full of ice (we visited Deck 9/Lido once a day for fresh ice). As other posters have mentioned. the refrigerator itself is cool, but not cold. Thanks again for the help!
  13. We were on the Nieuw Amsterdam this past week and had dry erase boards The walls next to the cabin doors are magnetic. However, we found the HA Navigator messaging system to work quite well also. We could message each other as needed. However, you don't get a notification when you have a new message and you cannot send a message to more than one person.
  14. We were on the Nieuw Amsterdam last week and had a case of bottled water. It was tagged and delivered to our room with the luggage. No issues.
  15.
