  1. It was my very first cruise and first time snorkeling so I can't remember a whole lot. I know we had to walk down the beach just a little bit to get in to the snorkeling area. I was amazed at what I saw but that could possibly be just because I had never done it before. I'm just going off of their website and other people's pictures now but I think it's a place that will work for my family this time. I will have my aunt, uncle and grandfather with me so I think this will be a nice place for everyone. Me, my husband, aunt and uncle will enjoy the all inclusive aspect and the snorkeling and it will be an easy, relaxing day for my grandfather. I hope you find a place that works for your family and I'll be anxiously awaiting the next review!
  2. I went to Playa Uvas in 2009 and really liked it. I've been contemplating going back when we're in Cozumel in March, so for selfish reasons I'd love for you to go and give me an update in one of your awesome reviews before then ๐Ÿ˜‰
  3. The passport card will work fine. I've used one to cruise the past 10 years but just upgraded to the book since my card has expired. If she is not anticipating any other cruises however, I probably would just use my birth certificate and save my money. A birth certificate and photo ID will get her on the cruise just as easily as a passport card.
  4. My husband would say I cruise solely for those!
  5. We've left from Miami x 3, Jacksonville, Port Canaveral and New Orleans. Easiest has always been Miami and our worst was Jacksonville. Jacksonville was our least favorite just because we had to stand outside in the heat for about 2 hours before getting into the terminal, this was before check in times were assigned so it could be better now. I also love leaving from New Orleans simply because it's a great city to explore prior to embarking. There's definitely a different vibe of people that left from New Orleans too, everyone was so laid back, nice and happy on that trip!
  6. Thank you for your response. I just checked and the port fees and taxes are exactly the same as they were when we booked. I assumed we'd have to pay the remaining $400 deposit too but they are only requesting $150 due by 1/27/19 which is way past what today is. Hopefully my PVP can give some insight.
  7. We submitted the price protection form earlier today because the price of the room (exact same category) had dropped $130 total. We received a booking confirmation almost immediately after showing the new balance due only $20 cheaper. It also says deposit of $150 now due 1/27/19. I knew we would have to pay the remaining balance due (we only paid $100 total at booking so we assumed $400, not $150) but none of this is making sense. I know Carnival needs to be called, just wondering if anyone has experienced a difference in price that what was anticipated?
  8. Thank you for this review! I look forward to reading it every day, it's making me very excited for my trip on the Horizon next March ๐Ÿ™‚
  9. Dunns River Falls and Bamboo Beach Break in Jamaica thru Carnival. We chose to go with Carnival because we docked in Montego Bay and did not want to risk being that far away from the port and not make it back in time. This was a fantastic excursion. I loved climbing the falls and the hospitality from our guide, Tamra was great. I would probably do this every time I'm in Jamaica. We took an island tour with Bernard's Tours in St. Maarten and our guide, the Mailman, made it a wonderful day. I loved seeing both sides the island. We got to eat macarons at a French Bakery, spend some time at Orient Beach and then watch the planes (bucket list for me) at Maho. Also loved snorkeling the wall in Grand Turk. That was such a cool experience, albeit a bit scary not knowing what's just beyond it! We chose the excursion thru Carnival that also let us dive for our own conch shells and then see the stingrays. I would love to do this one again too.
  10. I did the 12 Falls in January. I love adventure and pushing myself to do extreme things. I have to say, that highest jump did have my legs feeling like jello but Iโ€™m glad I did it. This is going to be a one time only excursion for me. It was fun, but I donโ€™t need to do it again lol. Like others said, wear a good pair of water shoes that will be comfortable to walk in! Itโ€™s quite a trek to get to the starting point and my uncle had on shoes that cut into his feet and made it miserable to walk the rest of the week.
  11. There will be 9 ships in Cozumel when I am there next year. Wish I had realized that before I booked but it will be ok, just have to make reservations for excursions a little sooner than I normally would.
  12. Maho Beach, Saint Maarten 4/2016
  13. I hope you have a great time, and I hope you do a review! We are doing the exact same itinerary on the Horizon next March so I look forward to reading about your experiences. What excursions will you be doing?
  14. We were able to get sushi "to go" from Bonsai on the Sunshine a few years ago.
