  1. Look at Bananaramadive. They offer various beach deals for cruisers. Love this place. Things to do, good snorkeling, good drinks, and food, and fantastic pizza. They pick and drop off at port.

    Zip Lining

    Victor Boden tours has a great zip line. My husband says it is some of the best equipment he has ever used. They have a great zip n dip excursion; involving zip line, monkeys, and beach time.
  3. Love Victor Boden's tours. Very professional. Caters to all.
  4. We love Bananarama beach. They offer great deals for cruise ships. They pick up and deliver at the pier. Great food, snorkel, and tours. Also great pizza. Google bananaramadive for info.
  5. At Bananarama, there most by at least 4 divers to book with them. It not they will put you on a waiting list. Great company though.
  6. Husband really likes Scuba with Alison. She is great and will accommodate snorkelers also. Very fast boat.
  7. The Windjammer is open. I don't think the MDR is open on embarkation day, but various restaurants are for a decreased fee (i.e. Chops). Depending on the ship, there is food "stands" at various locations (pizza, sandwiches, hot dogs, etc). Last time I was in the diamond lounge around noon, there were snacks and coffee.
  8. I found our "go to" place to stay on Airbnb. It is called the Schafer Haus and is a 5 minute walk to the Strand; 3 blocks from a great restaurant especially for breakfast (best breakfast quiche I have ever had). It is more like a BnB. It is an old boarding house that they refurbished. There are about 7 rooms. They have a kitchen and do not provide meals but you can cook your meals. It is very reasonable priced for Galveston. Look at their website for much info. They serve free mimosas on the weekend!
  9. Previously we had to sign up once on board at Sabors. It included us watching them make drinks and the guacamole, But got a drink and a meal afterwards. It was good and thinking about doing it again. Meal included a margarita, guacamole, salsa, and a sample of their menu.
  10. Since Celebrity is a sister ship to Royal, can one book Celebrity at Next Cruise? If so do you get the lower discount and all? Thanks
  11. Same here. Never have had the items in the cabin. I have to show my paperwork to the steward each time. Worse was the Allure. I need a medical refrigerator for medication. Never got it. Allure's solution was for me to give it to the steward and they would store it "somewhere (could not state where it would be stored)" until I needed it. Zip lock bags, that we brought, and ice was how it was stored for the week. Not happy. Other time, finally got medical refrig, and it was size of the refrig in the cabin. They brought a 20' frayed extension cord to plug it in. We did not except this (fire and trip hazard). They brought in another one that was not frayed and taped the cord to the floor, but there went a plug!
  12. How do we find out who the ship's doctor is? We are trying to remember his name from the Liberty in 2017. He was so helpful and I contribute him in saving my husband's life. We will be on the Liberty in May 2020 and wanted to stop by and tell him thank you.
  13. No, even if arrive at 0630, one may not be off the ship until after 0730 secondary to the number of self assist. Also then you have approx. an hour drive to the airport. All of this if all conditions are great and no hiccups. Would not book anything before noon.
