  1. I also encourage you to try the Hotel Lleo. It's right near Placa Catalunya and very close to HOHO bus.
  2. We (senior mother & daughter) are on the Vision for her TA back to Florida the end of September. As you can see, we are also near Tampa, up in Spring Hill. I will be following along, looking especially for tidbits about the ship. I'm just slightly worried it might be a long 14 days since she's getting some age on her.
  3. We just returned from E. Caribbean sailing on MSC Seaside, and I got off the ship in St. Thomas specifically to purchase Rum. We were docked at Havensight. There used to be a very cheap liquor outlet right at the top of the streets going away from the ship, but they are now gone. However, I found one right on the main street going away from the ship on the left side. Got my Brugal Anejo Rum (aged and dark) for $15.00 per bottle, large size. You can't get it in the U.S., at least we can't here in Florida. It is excellent.
  4. We just got off the Seaside last week. We had the Fantastica package and our first Etickets said we had the vouchers. So I printed off the tickets and presented them to Guest Relations, and they did give us the 2 voucher booklets, but they DID photocopy my Eticket. So go prepared and have the Etickets with you that show the drink vouchers. As nicely, and they will probably honor them. Great perk for sure!!
  5. We're on the Seaside in a couple of more weeks, so reading with great anticipation. Keep 'em comin'!!
  6. I just got our documents from our TA today and the Fantastica drink vouchers are on the tickets. It has 3 stars or asterisks right next to where it says "Fastastica Drink Package" under "What's included." And when you look at the 3 starts down below it says "12 drink vouchers." I am waiting for someone to post getting off the Seaside in April, telling us their experience. And you can be sure I will let everyone know when we sail on 4/27, if we get them or not.
  7. Thank you, RCCL Fan. That was very descriptive. We should be able to find it.
  8. We are going to Costa Maya in a couple of months and I was wondering about Tropicante. How DO you get there?? How do you really know when you are at the right place?? Could someone shed some light on this, please?? Thank you.
  9. Mine is another vote for Hotel Lleo. It's right at the top of La Ramblas, left-hand side looking up. Very convenient location. You can walk almost everywhere. Hotel is medium-sized. Small lobby but very nice rooms at a very nice price. They also h ave a small roof-top pool.
  10. Thanks so much, goneclear. Exactly the info I was looking for.
  11. She is an adult, almost a senior, like me!! I guess what I was wondering is if there is a monorail or people mover from the airport terminal to the transport center. I have located the Megabus location and it is part of the transport center near the car rentals.
  12. We're on the Vision for her September Transatlantic, so I'm eagerly awaiting the rest of your review. I know it's an older ship, but I'm old too!! LOL.
  13. We are taking a taxi to the MIA airport after our cruise into Port of Miami. Daughter is needing to hook up with a flight on Delta at 2:00 p.m. I, on the other hand, are taking the MegaBus to Tampa where I will be picked up. My bus leaves at 11:15. Our ship gets in at 5:00 a.m. and we should have plenty of time to get off with our luggage and get to the airport by 11 a.m. Should we tell the driver to let me off first at the transportation center across from MIA, or should he take my daughter to check in for her flight first?? How do we get between the airport and the transportation center for the MegaBus?? Thanks for any advice.
  14. Slightly off-topic question for Queens: Why so long from Tampa to Miami?? We are making the same drive VERY early on a Saturday morning, end of April. Which way did you go? DH wants to drive over to Yeehaw Junction and get on Turnpike and take it ALL the way down. What's your advice? Thanks so much.
