  1. We love the Alchemy Bar! All the drinks on the menu are very good but it's more fun to go off menu. Tell them what you like and let them work their magic.
  2. We did this cruise in 2011 and didn't get to see Domenica. We did enjoy St. Lucia and thought it was a beautiful island.
  3. We love staying on the lido deck and being close to the buffet and the pool. On our most recent cruise on the Horizon, we had a balcony cabin on the lido deck and never had an issue with noise. Congrats on the Anniversary! Oh and Geaux Tigers!
  4. We have never stayed in a 6M or any ocean view cabin on a cruise. Given the choice, I would choose 4J especially since it is on the lido deck. We have had 4J cabins on multiple cruises on different decks and love having the large open deck just steps away from the door.
  5. We love hitting the Alchemy bar. On the Valor it will be located right across from the dance club and steps away from the piano bar.
  6. There are bathrooms behind cabanas 9 & 10. We chose #10 as it is far enough away from the crowds but still close enough to the buffet area. This is one of our favorite ports as the beach is just perfect!
  7. On our Horizon cruise back in May the gift was a Tervis Tumbler.
  8. I was thinking of getting a credit card from the store and just loading enough money on it to cover the deposit for our group. Looking at their website it seems the deposit is made through paypal only. Is this a recent change they have made?
  9. I notice Paradise Beach now has an all inclusive option which includes food and drinks. I was wondering how much it costs as I couldn't find that info on their website.
  10. Hopefully the only thing they are adding is the pier. More cabanas and villas further down the beach wouldn't be bad either. HMC is the most perfect beach we have been to and we hope to visit there again soon.
  11. We are planning to do an Alaskan cruise in the beginning of June 2021. Will be nice to leave the heat of Nola for cooler temps up north in June. We are both beach people and had to really twist my wife's arm for this cruise, but it's a bucket list trip for me.
  12. Yeah we knew about this ahead of time so we packed some white to wear for the party. It was a lot of fun!
  13. Good question. We are doing the Valor in November. I know there is an 80's themed deck party. Who Dat!
  14. We had a great time at the white night party on the Horizon!
