  1. Thank you @reedprincess and @Beardface, good to know! Was not planning on purchasing a drink package as this time it is a very short cruise, and it appears that the special drinks on Ocean Cay are not included in any package anyway, so we'll most likely just pay a la carte.
  2. We just booked the May 16 Seaside cruise and I don't see the Ocean Cay Alcoholic Package or anything similar anywhere, and I even looked in Excursions and Photo and Spa for it. Does anyone know if it has been discontinued, or if there is a minimum length of cruise that is available on? (Our Seaside cruise is 5 days/4 nights). Any help or hints would be appreciated! P.S.: Also not related to drinks, but curious - does anyone know what the Seaside is doing between May 20 and May 23? I don't see any cruises available for these days, and saw some complaints from last year that MSC changed the regular 7 day Seaside cruise to this shortened 4 day.
  3. Thank you @mwhite991, good to know! I imagine it will be the same on sister ships like Lirica.
  4. Were there any free steam or sauna areas available on the ship, perhaps near the showers?
  5. Except they did change the 11/24 Meraviglia sailing, if this is the final version of the itinerary.

  6. Does anyone happen to know whether there are any free sauna/steam rooms on MSC Lirica or MSC Orchestra? It appears they both have MSC Aurea Spa after the refurbs, but some deck plans show 2 saunas in different locations - are any of these possibly attached to the lockers/showers and free? Lirica is sister ship to Armonia, Sinfonia, and Opera, and Orchestra is sister to Musica, Poesia, and Magnifica - any information about any of these ships would be appreciated!
  7. I am on Nov 24 Meraviglia sailing as well - looking forward to meeting you and everyone else. I spoke with MSC last night, and they (Ft. Lauderdale) said that there will be $50 onboard credit and 20% voucher for this sailing. She said that no itinerary changes have been posted yet that she can see, and right now it is just showing as cancellation/sea day. IMO it will probably be replaced with Nassau, same as Seaside. Hopefully no itinerary changes for us, I don't want to use up all my All-In wi-fi to reshuffle all our private excursions.
  8. I don't have the answers for the OP yet, but we will be on the Meraviglia in less than 2 weeks for Thanksgiving, and I can try to get some answers to these (or any other questions anyone can think of before then) when we are onboard. I do have a question myself though before our trip, if anyone would be so kind to share - what MDR(s) have 2-top tables and what would be the best locations for these, in case we are lucky to be able to switch to one of them? (I should have asked @nikkiw60 while she was there, but I guess I got distracted following her and Bea's travels - thank you both for sharing!)
  9. Oh no! I hope they offer you a nice replacement for the last sea day. 🤣 What is the champagne offered on ... Easy package I am guessing? Also - is there a TV channel with an outside cam view at all, or are those who have inside cabins doomed to never know what time it is when they wake up?
  10. Are there web cams on Meraviglia like on the other MSC ships? I wanted to spy on her but unable to find her webcams anywhere.
  11. Thank you @nikkiw60! Did you get a chance to enjoy the tables with a view at the back of the buffet yet?
  12. Do the buffet bars have cappuccino or specialty coffee/chocolate drinks available for breakfast? Or is this only available in the liqour bars elsewhere?
  13. Please forgive my ignorance - but is there a way to zoom in on the menus and dailies? When I do so, the image is just too blurry to read. Is it me or is it just the images? I understand that Nikki does not want to use up all their data while posting these live, so I am by no means complaining - just curious whether or not I am perhaps missing something. Enjoying your live report very much Nikki! 3 weeks until our cruise on her. 🛳️
  14. Are there any public locations aft by the staircases where you can hang out and watch the back of the ship? I understand that there is the top public deck and the back of the buffet is sort of open, but can you hang out in the back on other (cabin?) decks?
  15. Thank you @smile145 and @CruisinMaterial for the detailed info and the tips. Hope you are enjoying your cruise, the weather is nice and warm down here in Florida, so you will have some sunny times to enjoy soon! 🌞 How was the Boston stop?
