  1. Yay!!! We still have a long ways to go - after next weeks cruise we will be at 33 points! Weโ€™ve tried MSC , RC, and Norwegian a few times . I think now we will just buckle down and stay Carnival until we get to 75 points๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป
  2. I bet you would be happiest on Holland America, or Celebrity- to help decrease lots of kids and have a bit more quality experience.....read lots of reviews from these lines and see what you think.....- of course taking things with a grain of salt- maybe consider which departure port would be easiest/ most cost effective for you to get to, and find out which lines and ships depart from there. Then research every little thing about them here on CC! Have a wonderful time- the planning is half the fun!
  3. Who else would be in the second cabin? When we took our grown up kids last year, my husband and I split up and he and the 2 guys were in one cabin, myself and daughter in the other๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป The guys got the balcony cabin since there were 3 of them, and us 2 gals got the inside room across the hall.... but we visited often ๐Ÿ™‚
  4. We booked a cabana for 200$ for 6 people. Price fluctuates based on dates. The daypass only was 40pp - luggage can be stored inside the hotel, so you really wouldnโ€™t need a cabana.....
  5. I would rather be quarantined on a cruise ship than at work - easily! ๐Ÿ˜†
  6. We had a 7 pm flight on our disembarkation day, so we used resort pass.com and Ubered to Margaritaville Hotel in Hollywood Beach. It was about 15 min from FLL cruise port. We arrived at 10 am to the resort and spent a glorious day by the pool, beach and also the boardwalk. Very enjoyable and went off without a hitch.
  7. Booked on the Magic in February 2020. We have purchased spa passes for the first time ever, but know that the spa varies widely from ship to ship. Now wondering if it will be worth it? Another thing to consider is that we are traveling with another couple who have not purchased the spa passes, and thinking that we wonโ€™t use it as much as we would if traveling by ourselves. If anyone would weigh in about this it would be so appreciated!
  8. Yep- that's a great attitude - you'll be fine:)
  9. Oh- and the outdoor movies situation was puzzling. They showed good movies but there was no seating for the movie. Other than the built in backless amphitheater style seating that could - maybe seat 30 people . They stacked up and tied down the loungers every evening BEFORE the movie. If you sat on the comfy chairs back by the gelato cafe/ bar- you couldn't see the screen because it's placement was too low - just one of the things that never made sense on this ship. Did we still have fun? YES. Would we go again? NO!
  10. South beach pool area is not at all a solarium type area. It is adults only however. Very small , non covered pool area with a bar and a cafe - very few loungers - more people sitting at tables and chairs - one side is a smoking area -
  11. We loved the liquid soap at the sink in the bathroom- we loved everything about our stateroom. We were Fantastica experience. The ship is gorgeous, but the layout is not functional . There is no solarium pool for adults . The jungle pool area reminds me of the Solarium but is crawling with kids. My best advice is this: only go on the MSC Seaside if you are Yacht Club, or if you get a super good price on a normal room and go with zero expectations.
