  1. my 1st solo cruise and on this stop I'd like to go to a beach, I'm leaning towards Smugglers Cove as I would prefer a more laid back and quite beach. My question.... I've read about the open air busses at the port... is there one for Smuglers Cove? Do they run continuously from the port to the beach or are their specific return times?

    Thank you!!!

  2. IMHO water taxi is the only way to arrive. I'll be there for my fourth visit on 5/4/15 and I will still use a water taxi.

    I am assuming you are arriving in daylight hours.

    Of course there are cheaper alternatives, such as land taxi to Pizzale Roma, the last point where vehicles can reach. You could also use the Alliguna water bus, which is cheap,


    Yes we arrive daytime....water taxi sounds fun and a unique thing to do!!! are they available right at the airport? easy to find and figure out which one you want/need? thanks!!!!

  3. going to be in Cabo Feburary.... 4 adults, one with mobility issues but can get in and out of a boat.... is there a smaller tour company (I dont want to go with a huge boatload of people:eek:) that anyone has done the Lands end tour with? would like to see the Sea lions also, maybe whales? Thanks!!!!!

  4. I'm reading that Sarchi is to be the handcraft place to visit.... not that I want an Ox Cart :D but they say over 200 shops.... anyone been there? Was it worth it to you? Variety? Priced reasonably? How did you get there and how long did it take you? Thanks!

  5. Got a great $100 OBC for my past Feburary 2013 cruise from HSN. I see HSN has a new offer, speciality diner for two plus a bottle of wine onboard at Ocean Blue by Geoffrey Zakarian, plus $300 in e coupons... has anyone received this yet? Personally id rather have an OBC but free is free :D.

    Do all the ships have this Ocean Blue as ive not heard of it so must be in the new ships? if not, then what? Thanks!!!!

  6. Good afternoon! looking at a end of June DYI land tour before our cruise..... going to be in Seward and Whitter.... Looking at Major Marine, is doing both the Kenai Fjords and Prince William Sound trips to much duplication? Is Kenai more wildlife and PWS more Glaciers? Dont want to miss anything but certainly dont want to duplicate.... thanks for all your help!!!

  7. good morning!

    Looking at an Alaska cruise in 2014 with DIY land tour. will be a group of 4-6 couples..... trying to see what we can as well as taking time to relax and "smell the roses". any suggestions on if this looks good? what would you change? what would you not miss? is there to much time in Seward? what else would you do? Where would you stay? thank you all for your knowledge and experiance!!!!! :D

  8. just flew back from MIA yesterday (Sunday) 10:40 flight..... 4th time we have done that flight time when back from a cruise, never had an issue. Was to disembark at 8... all 4 of us were ready to walk off at 7... they gave the all clear at 7:30. Had to pay customs and then wait for a cab for 4 but was at the airport at 9. I will always take those early flights, just be ready to walk off the ship with all your luggage as soon as the ship has been released... good luck and have a Great time! :)

  9. Need opinions from those that have been there! Going to be is Curaco on a Monday next month 8am to 5pm. hubby, me, my sister and our Mom... Sis and I want to snorkle from shore, Mom and Hubby will lounge in the shade & sun ... of coarse we want to have liquid refresments available! Which is the best? Least Crowded? How far via Taxi from the ship? thanks!

  10. It seems we can NOT book it direct as they say we have to go thru the ships excurision...... so if we book thru Carnival for the Royal Dolphin Swim.... can we specify the time? How do we get to and from the park? is that covered in the cost? im not thrilled about waiting for large busses to fill up or being in a "herd" of people, but since i cant book on my own.... this seems to be my only option... any info would be greatly appreciated! :)

  11. looking at booking a Dolphin swim on our own but they are telling me that it is sold out for the day, 7 months out :confused: .... anyone have this happen? they asked What ship I was on or just staying in Cozumel and i told them the ship..... do they just say that then so you have to take the ships tour?

  12. Hello all!

    anyone have any photos of the MX category on the Sun? only two rooms classified as MX and was wondering what they looked like? Husband and I have booked for an 11 day in 2013 with my Mom & sis booked in the adjoining cabin... 1st time on the front of the ship... sure hope we like it! :)

  13. good morning! looking at booking a AC suite on the Sun, its the aft balacony. I see by the online photo/floor plan it has a seperate bedroom, but does it also have a 1/2 bath? or is it a sink, stool and shower? trying to figure out if 4 adults will work in the room or if we need another connecting room? :)

    thank you!

  14. We didn't see the forward suites, but I don't believe they have a separate bedroom. The stern suites do. We just stayed in 9276 on the Sun (got home Saturday). It was wonderful if you need the separation between the living room and the bedroom - we did since we were traveling with two little ones (2 and 4).


    Hope this helps!


    :-) amcb



    looking at this aft suite or 9076, do you have any photos? I see it has a seperate bedroom, is there only one bathroom?


  15. Was UVAS very busy?

    how was the snorkeling? I see they have snorkel tours from the shore every hour...we are trying to decide between UVAS or Playa Palancar for a not so crowed beach and some snorkeling...any recommendations?
