  1. the lunch was in our excursion and it was very good.
  2. there are now umbrellas on the beach, we loved going there, it was very nice, and the lunch was great too.
  3. We were there in October, lots of chairs along the water with umbrellas, they also have chairs scattered all over, there are hammocks in trees too. They have a full size connect 4 game and chess, corn hole games and table tennis. We were able to just wade close to shore, but it is deep and you can go over your head. Family members were able to do some decent snorkeling. We all walked over to see the dolphins swim, and some were there for the performance.
  4. I just tried redeeming point for OBC and it isn't valid on group pricing, but I saved a lot more than $100 by getting the group price. I just added my points back onto my account
  5. On one of our cruises, there were a few very rude people in scooters. I always go out of my way to accomodate anyone with mobility issues, but this particualr person thought the world owed her something. My husband was already in a line with several people behind him, he was next to be waited on, this person came from nowhere and rolled right into line in front of my husband so she could be "next" and rolled right over the top of foot.
  6. On the "other" cruiselines, you pay a corkage fee if you drink it outside of your cabin. No fee if you drink "at home" , but most other lines limit the number you can bring on.
  7. Thanks everyone, at least now I don't feel like a heel for not tipping enough based on them not receiving anything. I will continue to tip beyond the DSC.
  8. Hmmm, just came across another very recent thread regarding the Daily Service Charge. Why has this become so confusing?
  9. Hot topic on another board I follow, ....can anyone verify if the room stewards are included in the money from the daily service charge? Some are saying that the stewards see none of that money and it is expected they will be cash tipped. I have always been under the assumption that they DO get part of that money , and any cash tip is above and beyond. We always tip our steward, but if they in fact do not receive any of the daily service charge money, I want to make sure I am giving them enough.
  10. Thanks so much for all this Bird, I am sailing the first trip back to the Bahamas in the Fall with family that have never cruised. Your play by play and wonderful pictures of the Dailies and food will help them get excited. I will be tuning in daily to see what fun your having. Again, thanks a bunch, looking forward to reading everything.
  11. Did you have to book for 2 nights? I have read that you do.
  12. Looking for some private tour recommendations for Nassau. We are a group of 9 ages 12-65, we would enjoy snorkeling and some beach time. Thanks
  13. When we first started cruising, I would leave an emergency e-mail for the ship with family. It appears that it is no longer an option on most lines. All I see are phone numbers.
  14. As a previous poster said, check your cruise planner often. When you see a good deal...book it. Then contiue to watch it, it may go down more, at that point you can cancel and rebook. We paid $42 pp, per day for ours.
  15. only 2 formal nights on a 7 night cruise. We gave up eating in the MDR several cruises ago, but from what I understand, dress codes have been relaxed fleet wide. Last time we participated in a formal night on Celebrity, only stipulation was a collared shirt for my hubby, he didn't need a tie or suit coat.
