  1. Ah man I used to love those match plays! *sigh* Memories... I gotta chuckle at all the talk of alcohol in this thread. I drink, but my favorite part of the DL by far is the espresso machine. The wonderful D concierge on Mariner in December finally showed me how to make a proper Americano... apparently I was doing it wrong for years!
  2. Can’t tell you for sure what the holdup was or whether that level of delay is common, but our tour guide indicated that it’s often slow and people are often late. We tried to leave the ship at 9 for a 10:00 tour, and weren’t out of the terminal until 11:00. Fortunately it was a private tour for just our party, so the (FerTours) guide didn’t mind waiting. She was great.
  3. Just to add some info on the Breakaway: A fun, lively ship with good nightlife, but the standard balconies are TINY (the actual balcony itself, not the room). This also goes for standard mini-suites. Way below industry standard size. I was on Breakaway twice and sprung for an extra large balcony (B6) the second time and didn’t regret it. Overall a a little more crowded and less wow factor than the Oasis Class, but still a lot of fun.
  4. Did this cruise last month. Majesty is dated but in good shape. Layout is choppy and inefficient compared to newer ships, but Majesty felt less crowded, which was nice. Food was subpar compared to other RC cruises. Visa can be easily purchased through RC at check in and billed to your on board account. Disembarkation in Cuba was HORRIBLE - took us 2 hours ship to street... Allow plenty of time. We used FerTours (private tour) and had an excellent experience. Overall no regrets taking that cruise and I would do the whole thing over again.
  5. Was in a bungalow last month on Cococay and really enjoyed it. Interesting to hear that they're still on the planner for July... I was looking for a bungalow for my December Symphony cruise and I don't see them there anymore. Anyone know what the deal is? To answer OP's question, I didn't notice anyone exceeding the 6 person limit. The bungalow next door had some visitors for a little while, but they left before too long.

    Just back from Havana

    Thank you for the report! Looking forward to Majesty and Havana over here, and my private tour. Thanks for confirming that they are the way to go.
  7. Sorry if I'm missing something obvious, but which cruise is the "snowbird migration?" lol
