  1. We will definitely get off at Half Moon Cay. Probably book a shore excursion at Amber Cove. For Bimini we are uncertain; would at least get off the ship & visit a nearby beach but won’t wait the 2-3 holding hours at port@Cruise Related mentioned they experienced a couple of weeks ago.
  2. Hey 2 years ago I got to checkoff Dominica as an unexpected fill-in for St Thomas. There are so many of these less-traveled cruise ports worth trying once.
  3. Hi ninjacat123. What is the cost of this excursion thru Carnival? They announced a lot of itinerary changes yesterday for various September cruises. Still can’t add excursions they app.
  4. Thanks from St Louis and good luck at anything not involving my Cards! (in case you’re a Red Sox fan).
  5. It looks like the mock bookings are being updated now too (at least for both Horizon 6 day trips). Hopefully not too long before excursions are available related to those. In the meantime, I’m off to the Caribbean ports board to look more into 3 new stops for me.
  6. What excursions did you try on the 3 ports? Our September cruise just got really-routed to match. I think you mentioned in the other topic that Bimini had delays for both excursions and walk-offs; do you wish you had stayed on the ship?
  7. Thanks. Just saw it. Cozumel also replaced with Amber Cove. See you on board.
  8. @phoneman69 Do you have a link for the update? I think your on the same (9/12) sailing as me & still see the original ports in a mock booking. Tht
  9. @firefly333 No offense taken & the prices I copied were from a Google search. Obviously drinking the same amount of tap beers costs less than top shelf mixed drinks. I can’t believe something as innocuous as quoting someone’s post off of memory can bring out idiot responses where they take it as my scientific proof that they are getting ripped off. So done with the responses to this thread.
  10. You could have just read where I started with “someone…had done an estimate” rather than post some idiotic comment about math. Either way, take a flying leap off the Lido deck for all I care.
  11. That was quoting someone else posting pre-covid & not “my math”. If it helps you sleep night you are probably right depending on what drink is selected. CHEERS! Beverage Program Q&As Beer: $6.00 - $7.95 (mostly 16 oz.) Wine by the glass: $8.00 - $14.00. Mixed Drinks: $6.95 - $20.00. Specialty Cocktails: $8.95 -$12.95 (excluding souvenir glassware and premium selections) Soft Drinks: $2.50. Specialty Drinks: $2.00 - $4.95. Energy Drinks: $4.95 and up.
  12. Someone (pre-Covid) had done an estimate that it took at least 8-9 non-beer drinks to “get your money back” on buying Cheers. Obviously if you spend significant time off the ship in your ports, it makes it even harder to break even. I’m not really a drinker but I can’t imagine just prepaying Cheers just to avoid surprises. But to each their own.
  13. It’s funny that the same people that laud DeSantis for his pro-business, non-regulation stance (especially as it applies to cruising) are the same ones crying “politics” when when you bring up the dark side. Gotta wonder if stricter regs could have prevented Champlain Towers. And NO, I’m not blaming DeSantis in any way. I am blaming lax regulations and government oversight (mostly on the local level). Too little government oversight can be worse than the alternative.
