  1. My family is still planning on going we will be leaving on the Mer in Sunday. Minus my mother and DW’s dad. DPR

  3. Is that like Bigfoot? I didn’t know such a thing existed, Nassau fans that is. DPR
  4. your kts to mph conversion is incorrect. 1 kt = 1.15 miles. So 20 kts = 23 mph
  5. We are diamond soon to be plus (next cruise), I can’t find anything about this. Where is this listed as a benefit? DPR
  6. I am 2 months out from our sailing and I got the email containing our tickets and luggage tags with in minutes of completing our online check in. So maybe when you get a little closer you will get the email. DPR
  7. Thanks for the reply. of coarse they would if he had a glass of culligan 😉 DPR
  8. Hi all for the Miami debarkation process does MSC have a biometric system like Royal Carribean does with customs? Royals new system eliminated any wait times and is really great. If not does the yacht club have a separate line for customs clearance? thanks, DPR
  9. I have a question for anybody who has taken the bright line on one of the train to port packages. When checking the prices from the FLL station to port of Miami if you choose MSC the price is $35 but if you select another cruise line like Royal Carribean the price drops to $20. I know the MSC price includes checking bags at the origin train station and it is delivered directly to your cabin, but a $15 difference seems like a lot for a one way service. My question is has anyone done the package and selected another cruise line and then just told the lift driver to drop you off at MSC? If so did you have any problems, did the driver care? thanks DPR
  10. The fire danger from vaping is even more than smoking. Heating element plus battery can make a bad combination. There’s a reason it is not allowed on airplanes.
  11. Wondering what is the orientation of the map? Is it north up?
  12. I find it very strange that MSC charges for umbrellas at all let alone in the YC area. On Coco Cay RCCL has literally hundreds of umbrellas set up around the island along with lots of natural shade from the existing palms. It seems that MSC is cheaping out on the small things after spending several hundred million to build the island. And highly annoying to its YC passengers that when there is no shade you have to rent an umbrella. DPR
  13. @uktog could you you post the daily included wine list? Just curious for my upcoming first Azamara cruise. Thanks. DPR
