  1. I was a figure skater and advanced. The advanced sessions were just people that had their own skates. I was told that I could not do my jumps or "big spins" and that I would have to wear safety gear. No thanks, not worth packing my skates to skate in a circle. It's ok because a week before the cruise I shattered my elbow and couldn't skate anymore.
  2. Are you on the ABC cruise 4/19/20 out or San Juan? We are!!
  3. Clearly no one here seems to understand what a good wine is. You know what makes a wine good? ONE YOU LIKE! Just because one person doesn't like sweet wines or dry wines or pink wines doesn't make it bad, it just makes it not one for you. To answer OP question, a sweet wine to look for is one that says Riesling, Muscato. Here is a link for a chat about wines and how sweet and/or dry they are. https://winefolly.com/tutorial/wine-sweetness-chart/
  4. I'm going out of SJU in April as well and will *possibly* be flying down the morning of. Direct flight from ATL to SJU arriving about 1:30. Ship leaves at 8:30 pm and the flight we are looking at arrives at 1:24 on Delta. But I have trip insurance AND a passport just in case. We wanted to fly down the morning of so we could swing first class since my husband has never been first class before. If we went down the day before and have to pay for a hotel we like then we couldn't justify first class. This is a 5 year anniversary trip for us so we wanted to make it a little extra special. 😞 Ugh, I hate doubt.
  5. I feel this survey is skewed. At home I drink very little. Maybe 4 drinks a whole month. Get me on a cruise and I drink about 10 a day. I also get bottled waters, powerade/gatorade drinks, frou-frou coffees, etc in addition to my many alcoholic drinks. Last cruise I totaled up what the hubs and I would have spent and it was nearly $1200. Definitely worth the money for us to get Cheers.
  6. Oh sweet jeez. I thought the entire time I was reading this it was a water slide. That is until I saw Nolefan95's pictures. 🤣All I kept thinking was "why are people going down a water slide in long sleeves and pants?!". Grad school has turned my brain into useless mush.
  7. I am on Freedom out of San Juan in April and right now it's showing $50 pppd.
  8. I like passing all those "general" boarders. It made my husband feel like royalty the first and only time we've done it so far. Early embarkation and debarkation, having the room ready so we can get 100% unpacked (we do all carry on), drinking and napped all before safety drill.
  9. It just showed up in my cruise planner for my trip out of San Juan in April next year and it's is $50/day. Not bad!
  10. All I have ever sailed on is the medium classes of ship (Freedom of the Seas, Mariner of the Seas, couple of Carnival ships about the same size). I know over time these smaller classes will be a thing of the past. I think about how the Oasis class is 40% bigger than the Freedom class and it makes me feel uneasy a bit, almost nervous. Have any of you had a hard time going from the convenience of the smaller ships to the HUGE ships? I have a hard time with extreme crowds (like concerts and shopping malls during the holidays). Do the mega ships have that extreme crowd feel? I usually cruise during times when school is in session to avoid some of that. What are some of your experiences and thoughts on going from a smaller ship to a mega ship?
  11. Spin instructor (I do that now as a side gig), nail tech (one of my current hobbies), or mixologist (have a special talent for mixing drinks).
  12. Ugh I saw this too. I wish I had booked the BOGO when I saw it. Maybe they will do it again.
  13. A few weeks ago. Beverage options aren't available yet but dining ones are and so is internet and excursions.
  14. I noticed this new plan is already in my cruise planner for my cruise April next year. I'm actually considering it since you get lunch in specialty restaurants on sea days too plus the $35/pp credit for a la carte items. It does have BOGO, 5 dinner, and UDP, plus each individual restaurant listed to already take reservations. Seriously considering the UDP now. It's $168 for my cruise and we could eat all places more than once.
