  1. We also did this cruise but in reverse (Charleston to Jacksonsville). Did a couple of days pre cruise in Charleston and had a terrific cruise. We chose our route to end up closer to home. Mike😊
  2. Taking prepackaged snacks ashore is fine and there is no problem taking foodstuff back to the ship. Mike😊
  3. Harpoon Harry's 832 Caroline St has free wifi Mike😀
  4. Yes book your future cruise while onboard in order to receive the discount and then notify your TA after you get home and they can take over the booking without you losing the onboard discount. We have done that several times with no problem and then got an additional discount from our agent on top of that. Mike😊
  5. bhopal21

    which port?

    You will dock at the Margaritaville pier B which is an easy walk off into town. Mike😊
  6. A good travel agent can also save you several hundred dollars as well. Mike
  7. keywester is exactly on point! I wouldn't waste my time anywhere other than the two aforementioned places. Mike
  8. I agree with Ray. Our cruises on ACL we have always had 6 to 8 top tables in the dining room. Mike😊
  9. Yes the evening cocktail hours are complimentary and included with your cruise. American Cruise Line does not sell alcohol to its passengers. mike
  10. Thanks for your in depth review. I’m sure it will be helpful to future cruisers. mike
  11. Louie's is my choice for lunch between those two. Mike😊
  12. And more significantly you will be accompanied by only 100 fellow passengers rather than 6-700 Mike
  13. Sorry to hear that your dining experience was less than exemplary as that is usually not the case on ACL; at least not in our past cruises. In our experience the food has always been much better than any we have had on the mainstream cruise lines. Thanks for your review, Mike😊
  14. I think you will be pleased with Fort Zachary Taylor. Mike😊
  15. Glad you had such a great cruise! I can hardly wait until your next excellant;p review. Mike:)
  16. The laundry rooms do not show on the deck plans but are on deck 5 next to the fitness center. They are also listed in the amenities for each ship which feature them. No I have not sailed on the Constitution but I have sailed on the sister ship the Constellation. Mike:)
  17. Since they are adjacent there is no need for one unless one is mobility impaired. Mike:)
  18. The Constitution also has a self service laundry on deck 5 across from the fitness center. Mike:)
  19. The OP is sailing on the Constitution I believe; however the Constellation does have two self service washers and dryers on deck 5. Detergent and dryer sheets are furnished. Mike:)
  20. You will be given menus for the day’s meals each morning at breakfast where you can make your selections for lunch and dinner. Any specific needs can be communicated to the chef and he/she will gladly accommodate. Mike:)
  21. You are correct. The only way from/to the ship is by the free provided shuttle. The Outer Mole pier is located behind a military installation so no other forms of transportation are allowed. Mike:)
  22. Actually the permanent bar was in the entertainment area but it ran very smoothly. And like yourself we have never felt ourselves lacking for alcohol on ACL. Mike:)
  23. They actually set up two bars on the Constellation the permanent bar on deck 3 then an additional bar (folding tables like on other ships) on deck 4. I don't think the take down bar on deck 4 was open after dinner like the built in bar on deck 3 but on the other hand I didn't visit the deck 4 bar after dinner Mike:)
  24. Yes, same location. The bar remained open throughout the evening's entertainment. Mike:)
  25. Yes Ray the second open bar was an every evening occurrence. Mike:)
