  1. Interesting..."Beach Cabana - Waterfront" appears to be a new category. I did a lot of research before booking our "Over the Water" cabana for our upcoming cruise and never saw any info on the "Waterfront" option. I wonder if they built new ones or just changed the designation of certain existing cabanas?
  2. Great! Hope you have a wonderful cruise!
  3. I meant to include the website link but got distracted by my happy memories 🙂 .... http://www.onelovecharters.com
  4. We did a full day charter with Capt Joe of One Love Charters. It was a fantastic day! We taxied from the cruise dock to where the boat is docked at Compass Point Marina. Then the itinerary was totally up to us, we chose to go to St John which is a gorgeous trip across the sound. We snorkeled at Waterlemon Cay (tons of sealife), then took a short hike from there up to a beautiful lookout point that Joe recommended. Next we went to Hawksnest Bay and enjoyed the beach for awhile We ended the day in Cruz Bay at a waterfront bar then back to Compass Point in plenty of time to return to the ship. Joe and his boat are awesome, it's not cheap but highly recommended, we will remember it forever and hope to do it again!
  5. Nothing to see inside the roped off swim area but my friend snorkeled off the pier just past the cabanas, outside the roped off area and said it was fantastic.
  6. From what I've been told by friends who've done it, YES! We'll be there in December and I've booked it for my husband and 2 teenagers. I'm terrified of heights and will be hanging out on the beach 🙂
  7. I will look forward to replies on this topic but having been to Paradise Beach twice before, my kids loved it and we plan to return on our upcoming cruise (our "kids" will be 17 and 19, eek, where did the time go??)
  8. We rented a cabana on our cruise in February. It was a great day. Was it worth the price? Everyone's price point is different, I think we paid $350 but it was worth for me to avoid the crowded section of the beach and to have the choice to alter between the shaded lounges at the cabana, to the hammock, to sunny lounges on the beach. Also being able to lock up our valuables in the cabana was great so we could both enjoy swimming/snorkeling at the same time. The food/drink was from Fat Tuesdays, the waiters were very attentive all day.
  9. When our kids were younger we took the shuttle up to Rainbow beach, it was great. The water was calm, we rented chairs and floats and had a wonderful day. The swimming area was very protected.
  10. What’s a better Spa deal, this 15% of coupon or the port day discounts I recall seeing onboard? I’m thinking of staying onboard in Belize and relaxing in the Serenity area and maybe getting a massage. It’s been a long time since I’ve sailed Carnival but I recall them offering port day discounts.
  11. I tried the Carnival FAQs and search function here but can't find this answer....online check in opens Monday but final payment isn't due for a couple more weeks. Can I do online check in before submitting my last payment or do I need to submit final payment first? Thanks in advance.
  12. Ours is $340 with Carnival in February. Correct that it includes passes (I think 4?) to the chair lift. This is my first time at Mahogany Bay, I'm looking forward to it. On a prior cruise we had a cabana at Half Moon Bay which we loved...this was many years ago, I had to rush to the excursions desk upon embarkation to reserve it, hopefully they let you do it online now.
  13. We are looking to book 2 cabins...I see that some 2-bedroom family suites on the Star connect to a mini suite. If we are travelling as a family in those 2 cabins, do the people in the mini suite get the suite perks (access to suite breakfast/lunch, priority boarding, etc)? Thanks
