  1. A fun activity for a Sea day is the ‘blend’. We were traveling as a group of six and 3 of us participated in blending our own custom wine. Then at dinner the sommelier set up 3 wine glasses at each place setting and we had a blind taste test. It was fun trying to decide who had made each one. I recommend it.
  2. Cozumel was an easy port to walk off the ship. I can’t comment on the island as we took the ferry across to the mainland and toured Rio Secreto. Those caves were awesome!
  3. Thanks Caribbean Chris. That is exactly correct. But at least we all got $100 OBC / cabin to compensate.
  4. Currently on board. Lots of folks have given reviews of ship. She is nice and new! I will focus on ports of call. 1) Half Moon Cay - very nice. Easy tendering - no wait. We were the only ship there. :-) 2) Ocho Rios - ugly industrial port. 10 min walk to shops: restaurants. Be prepared to be bombarded by locals trying to get you to take tours. Most start by trying to shake your hand ( I don’t shake ANYONE’s hand-fist pump for me). They are offended if you refuse and call you racist. Then they start yelling at you. There is nothing within the industrial port so don’t bother to get off ship. Tomorrow is Cayman Islands. I will report back.
  5. I am with you Jargey3000. We will be on the same cruise! .....and I too would like to find out if there are any secret menus or dishes that cruisers found exceptional. Also like you, we have found plenty of good food to eat without paying extra.

  7. I tend to run warm so maybe sleeveless will be OK and carry a wrap just in case?
  8. OK..... Hmmmm. I just packed up a bunch of sleeveless tops/ dresses. I did pack a cardigan but Maybe I need to rethink this. Are other indoor areas - bars- music venues- etc “chilly” ?
  9. I leave on the Nieuw Statendam next weekend and I haven’t cruised to the Caribbean in eons.( I mostly cruise in cooler weather). I am trying to pack and big question came about. Given that it will be hot 70’s & 80’s outside, how warm/ cool will it be in the MDR and other interior spaces. Should I be packing a light sweater / warm shawl? If I am sleeveless, will I be chilly in the MDR? Thank you so much!!
  10. Thanks SevenSeasNomad! We look forward to your report.
  11. This reported from someone currently on the Eurodam ”On another note back to the “hot topic” of $10 charge for 2nd entree.....our waiter informed us this evening that if you happen to not like the entree that you ordered...he will bring another at no charge.” Good to know that they are being reasonable about it.
  12. Not the “exact same issue” - read my original question .... I am not asking to debate the issue. I AM ASKING FOR FEEDBACK FROM CRUISERS WHO HAVE DIRECTLY EXPERIENCED THE NEW TEST POLICY.
  13. Thank you VennDiagram for paying attention. Still waiting to hear from actual cruisers.
  14. OP Here! I am not looking to debate the new test policy. Other threads are doing that. I am asking for input from those who HAVE DIRECT EXPERIENCE with the new test. Has anyone actually cruised on a ship with the new test policy in place. What were your experiences?
