  1. Even when WDW opens it is not going to be the Disney most of us remember. The most magical place on earth will be the land of "no". No fireworks, shows, character interactions, parades, park hopping the list goes on. Transportation, hotels and rides will all be subject to social distance rules et al. Why would anyone spend the big money it costs for a Disney vacation and not get the real experience. Have been to Universal already (have an annual pass) and will not be back it is not the same...
  2. Love this ship; a bit smaller than Independence but similar. Been on twice out of Canaveral barley felt ship move once...
  3. Nice looking couple, great pictures! Your wife looks allot like the actress Lauren Tewes (yes Julie from the Love Boat) !!!
  4. Best of luck; not going to be soon until all USA cruises cancelled for awhile...
  5. Mere minutes or days away from the US Government shutting the whole industry down for at least a month...
  6. Used the garage half a dozen times no problem at all at debark; walked right off ship only one on elevator right in the car. Prefer car to be protected from the weather. No you cannot choose to park there.
  7. Ah a little friendly civil unrest in Puerto Rico is what anyone who has spent anytime there would call "Tuesday"; usually a small bunch of riff raff monitored by a bored group of local cops in mismatched uniforms. Not to worry. They are far to friendly a bunch down there for the serious stuff. Power outages are as common as sunsets, just hope your not in an elevator; enjoy....
  8. I would suggest rehab or a trip to the Betty Ford Clinic...kidding; sailed Royal and Carnival and always wondered how Carnival came up with 15 drinks? Would have loved to be in the pitch meeting - I would have suggested 20, someone else 10; 15 it is! Royal is like who the heck cares most people pass out after 5 or 6....heck, raise the price of a beer to 10 bucks (which they have) and they will all get the unlimited drink package! But you get (mediocre) specialty coffee and Mountain Dew, Orange Crush all ya can swallow too....makes my head hurt just thinking about it...cheers.
  9. Do not listen to any of this drivel; you need a B1/ B2 visa period....
  10. ESTA is basically a "visa waiver"; if you overstay it you risk getting flagged/banned for an extended period of time for future USA entry. Get a regular tourist visa which can easily be good for 6 months at least (date will be on the I-94 form).
  11. Great review. We were on 4 night Mariner a week and a half ago and echo many of your points. The "pay" low cost food venues were empty; never saw anyone in Johnny Rockets (the last time I was in a Johnny Rockets was in Dublin, Ireland in 2002; the concept is tired to say the least), Playmakers was a nice bar with great service but I never saw anyone ordering food ($); always had three bartenders there at your disposal. Mariner has the free hot dog/brats on pool deck; actually was pretty good. Same thing at Port Canaveral no lines at check in just find a rep (they will find you actually) with a wireless tablet and keep walking; car to room in 15 minutes (we arrived at 1245 on purpose). CoCo Cay as you said is the new standard and best private island of any line, finally a decent burger at the Snack Shack; Royal got this right on the money. Cheers....
  12. We were there last Thursday; it is likely the best private island by far of any line. The place has everything you could want and more than enough chairs/umbrellas/drinks everywhere/food everywhere; pay for the water park and other stuff or not, makes no difference, Your nuts if you stay on the ship. As far as cabanas who cares? Buy it or not it's your money and the market will dictate price. Just wait until December when the new beach club opens (saw the construction equipment/fences). Can't wait for people to howl about those prices and then immediately pay to go...
  13. Always wonderful reviews best of CC. I too have done the gas hose step-over move; never again. One of my Harley riding friends had the same ankle injury you have (about ten years ago); here's how he did his: He decided it would be a good idea (do not do this past 40) to roller blade with his kids and put one roller blade on his right foot and then stood up and lifted his left foot in the air to attempt to put on the left one; bad idea. Well his right foot collapsed and separated his ankle from his leg just like yours. I had never heard of this injury before this you have my sympathy. Be patient it is a long recovery but you will be as good as new!
