  1. Was thinking of changing my Italian reservation to Ocean Blue now that the upcharge is gone, until reading this. Am going on Bliss; what was ‘very poor’ about it?
  2. That is a great idea! Thank you. We don't really want to do a big excursion on that first day, when we land at 1:00 pm. Thinking of using the $50 per cabin shore excursion credit for transportation to Cocoa Beach that first afternoon, and then this kayak tour sounds good too! (Otherwise, we'll just be wasting that $50 credit x 2 cabins...)
  3. What’s the arcade like on Bliss? Worth buying a pass for 8 nights?
  4. Thanks, everyone. Anyone know what the % of tax is, by any chance?
  5. Searched for the answer to this but could not find it. We have the included drinks package and wondered if we could start using it as soon as we board on embarkation day, or if we had to wait until we're at sea? Thanks!
  6. We were in a mini-suite on deck 11 under the pool, and while we did hear some chair-dragging early in the morning, it wasn't that bad. We'd been booked in an inside and got a call from our TA offering an upgrade to a mini so we grabbed it. When we did a cabin crawl with our roll call group, we found the cabins overall much more spacious than on the newer ships. You'll be fine regardless of whether you choose a balcony or a mini! Gem is a beautiful ship and the crew is fantastic.
  7. Jason, we are on your sailing and we're doing the Space Center on Day 2. I thought we'd book a car service, but since we may head to SeaWorld on Day 1, your plan for a two-day car rental sounds like a good one... Off to check that out. What's the nearest pickup point from the cruise port to get a rental car?
  8. Have already tried and love Cagney's, so that'll be one! Stuck on which other two are worth going to... Help!
  9. What's the uncharge for kids at specialty restos?
  10. You've all convinced me! I was leaning that way, too, and now I am super clear 🙂 Thank you!
  11. Looking to book Bliss for 8-nighter. Travelling with hubby, 14-yr-old and MIL. In the past, we've done 2 connecting Insides. I would love a balcony though. Any thoughts on whether we should cram into a balcony, or stay with 2 insides? Also, best decks on Bliss, cabin-wise?
  12. From what I understood, you cannot bring water in plastic bottles onboard. Am I correct?
  13. Great! They'll probably meet up on the first night. How old is your son? Mine just turned 14.
