  1. We are booked for June 2021 as well and are very excited as this is our first trip to Alaska. Dressing in layers seems to be the main theme I have been seeing on here. Hope it still happens.
  2. We book our pre cruise hotel stay as soon as possible(after doing research on the best place for our needs). Also we don't pre pay in case we need to cancel for any reason.
  3. Very nice review! We did an 8 day cruise on the Horizon and loved all the features available on the Hub App. Also Mike Pack was the best cruise director we have had in our 13 cruises! We really enjoyed the 80's rock n glow deck party.
  4. We haven't done a short cruise in quite a few years, but apparently on sailings of 5 days or less you don't get your alcohol the last night of the cruise. You have to go to the nightclub the morning of debarkation to pick it up.
  5. In Cozumel we went to Mr. Sancho's and had a great time! Lots of great food and lots and lots of drinks!! We will definitely go back there again.
  6. Just got off the ship today from a fun filled 4 day cruise! We did an 8 day cruise on the Horizon back in May and that ship spoiled us! There are features on the Horizon that apparently aren't fleet wide yet. We enjoyed being able to see all of the pictures we took with the ship's photographers on the hub app as well as being able to make our dinner reservations for anytime dining. Also, some people aren't crazy about the new smart elevator system on the new ships but we loved it. We knew exactly which elevator to go to and never had a long wait. The cruise director doesn't really make
  7. Yeah the secret is out about the 4J cabins. We have done quite a few cruises with those and love the value compared to a balcony cabin.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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!
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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!
  14. On our Horizon cruise back in May the gift was a Tervis Tumbler.
  15. 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?
