  1. We sailed on the Majesty in July. Originally we were booked in 1046 which was as far forward as was available based on reviews to avoid directly under the pool area. Once our Cuba stop was cancelled a bunch of cabins opened so we upgraded to Grand Suite 1538. Did not have any issues with noise from above. Great location being close to the stairs that go right to the buffet and pool area. The Majesty is definitely an aging ship but we found her to be clean and decently maintained. Especially loved the balcony. The overhang from above provides great shade.
  2. Looking at options for 2021 on the Mardi Gras. Of all the ports listed we have only been to Cozumel. We are booking for the ship so both itineraries look fine to me. Which would you choose? West=Cozumel, Costa Maya and Mahogany Bay, East=San Juan, Amber Cove and Grand Turk
  3. Just got off the Majesty yesterday. Took pics of the wine menu that was in our suite. Fairly new to cruise critic so let me see if I can upload.
  4. Was on the Vista last year which has pretty much the same setup. Above were my thoughts on each. Overall I loved the variety of different dining options.
  5. We booked directly through the Atlantis website. For the water park one on our date it was $168 for adults and $103 for our DD. Google also led me to some 3rd party vendors you could also book with but I didn’t want to mess with that. We also booked a cabana for the day. So the whole day will be pricey. We were on a Cuba cruise and shouldn’t have even been stopping in Nassau. We are getting 50% of our cruise fare back so figure we will make the most of the day when we should have been in Havana.
  6. Thanks for the feedback. Looks like we can’t go wrong with any of the choices!
  7. We pre-bought day passes through Atlantis. This is not a shore excursion through the cruise line. We planned to just take a cab there but where do we tell the driver to take us. The resort looks huge so I don’t want to pick a drop off in the complete wrong spot. The confirmation paperwork from Atlantis did not specify. Also how long should I allow from Atlantis to get back to the pier. I have read people mentioning traffic/crowds. It will be Friday late afternoon/evening so I assume traffic will be an issue. Looks like though there is only one other ship in port and it’s arrival/departure is shifted from ours. Thanks for the help!
  8. We took a last minute cruise on Carnival last year and fell in love with cruising. We are now booked to leave in 2 weeks on the Majesty of the Seas which we chose specifically for Cuba. I’m sure we will still enjoy it but next cruise we really want to be all about the ship. We are looking at either Harmony or Symphony. Both are nearly identical dates and itineraries. Departure port for either is a wash as both are a direct flight for us. We are considering either a Crown Loft Suite or Spacious 1 bedroom Aqua Suite. The aqua suite is more but still within budget. Will be me, my husband and our 11 year old DD. Any preference between Harmony or Symphony? What about the Crown Loft vs Aqua Suite?
  9. Ship - Carnival Vista Deck - 7 Stateroom # - 7359 Stateroom Category - Ocean Suite Starboard or Port Side - Starboard Quiet Stateroom? (With comments on problems) – Yes Was stateroom a connecting stateroom? - No Balcony View - Give comments on view, noting if location of any obstructions was an issue. – Good view. I know I read some negative comments about deck 5 sticking out below but I didn’t think it took away from the view at all. Balcony Size? Normal or oversized for class? - Normal, we had one lounger and 2 chairs. Balcony was a little narrow but long and overall size was very good. Was wind a problem? - No If an aft cabin, was soot a problem? - N/A Any specific problems with this cabin? - None. Any other comments? - Deck 7 is a great location. Easy walk up and down to the main decks. We were able to avoid needing to use the elevators which could take awhile. Also liked being midship. Overall the ocean suite was very roomy.
  10. I’m booked on a July Cuba cruise with RCL and received this. I at least appreciate that the email came quickly after the restriction announcement and that they gave a clear timeline for the next update. Dear Guest, Today, the United States government shared that educational and recreational (or people-to-people) travel to Cuba is no longer permitted and you may be wondering how this affects your upcoming cruise. Please know, we are assessing what these changes mean for all of our future Cuba cruises and we kindly ask for your patience. We promise to share an update with you and your Travel Partner by tomorrow, June 6th, at 6:00 PM EST. Thank you for your patience, we will be in touch soon!
  11. We also are big drinkers. We drink throughout the day on a cruise and are no where near hammered, Our experience on the Vista was yes the bartenders would let us pay for a drink before the 15. I never got close but my husband did a couple of nights. Also often one of us would take both cards to the bar and get us both drinks. Just easier then both going to the bar every time. I know this is against the rules but we could have used my card to let my DH have more drinks. Also I know this is flame full but I often used my card to get non alcoholic mixed drinks or smoothies for my daughter at the bar. We always tip when we get drinks and found all the bartenders to be great and always got quick service.
  12. Just booked the Panorama for Memorial Day 2020... so a lot!
