  1. Me too. Used it a bunch with just the surf package. Worked fine.
  2. For my money I’m taking a 10 minute taxi ride to Blue Key and eating ceviche right there. You won’t need to pay the access fee just to eat. Take a walk along the Malecon and grab a taxi back whenever you want. Plenty of time to enjoy something other than the port.
  3. I definitely thought it was worth the cost. My wife is a pool girl so she loved sitting there reading. The snorkeling from the end of the long pier is very good and for beginners there were attendants in the water keeping an eye on everyone. If you’re not a beginner swim out to the edge of the reef where it drops off to just the most amazing deep blue ever. The food was surprisingly good and you can leave just about anytime you want.
  4. We go to both places several times a year and I’ve never taken Pesos. Prices are listed in dollars and everyone takes them.
  5. As long as you also wear a ball cap on backward and a wife beater. Otherwise you’ll be overdressed.
  6. Cabs will be lined up. Just tell them there are 10 of you and they’ll get you there.
  7. Temporary Cal’s https://www.tripadvisor.com/Restaurant_Review-g2548902-d2633876-Reviews-Temporary_Cal_s_Cantina-First_Bight_Roatan_Bay_Islands.html amazing food and view.
  8. We just booked a March 2020 and have three more booked this year. I’m always actively looking for the right deal so it’s only a matter of time until we book more next year. And the next.
  9. Check MSC, there are several that are in that duration window. They are just a bit over your budget though but not much. As has been said, call a TA.
  10. As of a month ago we had no problem with either small 110 fans or small brown extension cords. I run a cord from the desk over to the bed and plug both fans in with the end of the cord under the bed in the middle. Fans go on the nightstands. Noone has ever said a word in 30 cruises.
  11. $1900 for 4 passengers and 4-1/2 hours? Chicken indeed. No.
  12. Beachiekeen.....awesome username. 😂
  13. Just wear a tee shirt, shoplifter pants and a hoodie every evening.
  14. You may not get many responses here on this. There are lots of reviews on Google and probably Trip Advisor too. Good luck.
  15. Last time we used Shore Excursioneer to Paradise. Service was good, comfortable ride and on time going and return. Would repeat. https://www.shoreexcursioneer.com/ Also have used Victor Borden several times and was very satisfied every time. We booked the tour where you can do whatever you want and just used the driver as our private driver. https://boddentours.com/ As someone said, taxi service is not reliable like it is other places. I would never book with the ship though, particularly not to just go to West Bay or West End Village, or both.
  16. $3,000.00 in the casino in the Bahamas in 1993. Back in my days of overindulgence I’m afraid.
  17. Yes they did. They were even rolling it around the pool area a little.
  18. We have one booked in September and B2B in October. Can’t wait.
  19. We got off Liberty two Sundays ago. We got up early, ate breakfast in the dining room, went back to the cabin and got our bags, rolled our own bags off and were standing on the sidewalk at 8:05 after having gone through Customs. We live on Lake Conroe and we were back in Conroe proper at 9:30. Took the east loop around Houston and I was shocked at how little traffic there was. IAH is a good bit closer than Conroe and even with having to return a rent car you should have plenty of time. I mean, that’s 3 hours. And I had to walk about 3 blocks to my truck at EZ Cruise Parking (outside) and return to the terminal and pick up my wife and bags before hitting the road home. If you park indoors at Galveston Park N Cruise it’s even closer. Just don’t leave your bags outside for the cruise lines to take to the terminal. Very easy.
  20. And my wife reminded me to include the one with only inside muster drills.
  21. We love Vision as well. We sailed on her in March mainly because she is leaving Galveston and won’t be back. We’re booked on Enchantment 3 trips later in the year. Hope we like her as much.
  22. The one with the most productive casino, the least crowded Solarium, the quietest reading area, the fewest drunks, the best port times, the fewest children, the cheapest staterooms, the most empty elevators, no fake service animals, cleanest public restrooms, the fewest staff photographers, the most free food venues, the fewest loud announcements and the friendliest crew.
