  1. I believe that Vibe has gone up to $209 for a 7 day sailing... I paid $159 for 10 days, but that was prior to the newest price increase... In the MDR I have on a couple of occasions been asked if I would mind sitting with others, and did a couple of times... (It probably ended up being more awkward for them than me...)
  2. I've sailed the "Away" class ships, and I found the Breakaway to be a perfectly fine ship to sail upon... Although I like the Escape and Bliss better, that's only due to some of their additional dining choices and features. I would go back on the Breakaway in a second...
  3. As far as myself, the no-go list is as follows: art auction, bingo, karaoke, gold by the inch, watch sale (in fact, nothing with the word "sale") free liquor tastings, and probably a few more that I can't think of at the moment...
  4. Headliners, under the glass staircase...
  5. Pincho Tapas is covered by the SDP with a $7 up charge, and is my favorite dining venue on the Escape... You can order as many items as you want, as many of each item that you wish... Second favorite is Food Republic, which is not part of the SDP whatsoever, but still worth a visit...
  6. As far as upgrading the dining package, you can buy an additional package to cover the extra meals, but it will be separate from your promo package. Yes, you can sign a drinking waiver for over 18, but I believe that only the actual parent must sign, so the friend likely wouldn't be able to participate. Uber is fine to use to the port, just hope that you get a driver that speaks English... I've had poor luck with that in Miami, and once my driver got lost three times on the way to the ship. I actually had him pull over and walked the rest of the way. You can message each other with the app, but each person will have to pay a small fee for the duration of the cruise. I believe it's between $10 and $15 each.
  7. Aw, shucks... You're going to make me blush...
  8. Last September I boarded the Carnival Magic which had sailed empty from Port Canaveral the day before, and was among the very first on the ship... The crew were happy and well rested, and cabins were available immediately upon boarding...
  9. Just a quick FYI... Sid's AyTeeEl (ATL) has been moved to the floataway lounge section of the Cruise Critic message boards... I believe that a drunken rant that I posted last night caught the eye of the admins, and they took notice... I would really like to thank each and every one of you who have been following the thread following my boring, everyday life, as well as the occasional food and beverage p0rn... I'm 170 days from my next cruise at this point, and if I find a new place to live soon, I hope to get a lower number countdown booked... (Fingers crossed...) Thanks to all of you again who have followed along on my drunken travels.........
  10. I've done several cruises up to 8 days with only an airline carry on and personal item. I usually bring around 10-12 shirts, including one or two nice shirts for elegant night. One pair of long pants to be recycled for both elegant nights. The rest is just shorts, swimming trunks, underwear and socks... Remember, you'll never see any of these people ever again, no need to dress to the nines every day and night...
  11. The main entrance, closest to the lounge is near the forward elevator bank / forward stairs...
  12. I'm not sure if there's a way to order, but you should be able to get some from any bar... Indoor bars will have glass and outdoor bars plastic...
  13. The first rule of cruising: Screw the calories, and enjoy your vacation...
  14. I just returned from the Breakaway a little over a month ago, and everything went just fine... (Sorry, I don't know how to copy and paste the link to my review on my phone... Just Google "Breakaway / live / solo) I believe that people get all worked up over poor reviews, and believe they'll suffer the same situations as the reviewer... Just go into with an open mind and have a great time...
  15. Was it orange with red? If so, that's a mango meltdown... Although, when I get it, I order it as a mango margarita, with patron silver, (and no strawberry syrup, or amoretto)
