  3. My husband got very sea sick on our first cruise. He now uses the little round patch that you get a RX from the dr for. He hasn't had any trouble since he started using it. We have been on 5 cruises now. It does not make him sleepy. He wouldn't cruise without it.

    Government Discount?

    I am a federal government employee. There is also a state government discount.

    Government Discount?

    We use government discounts most of the time we travel. Most hotels let you use it as long as you have an ID.

    JW Marriott

    [quote name='megr1125']I stayed there last summer..not pre cruise, but on a weekend. It is GORGEOUS! Not near TOO much, but the metromover is only 2-ish blocks away, there is a Publix maybe 4 blocks away..a couple restaurants, and you are near this. (i think...:confused: ) [URL="http://www.marybrickellvillage.com"]www.marybrickellvillage.com[/URL] if you are a Marriott elite member (gold or platinum) OR you book a room on the concierge floor, the lounge is open on weekends with free beer and wine, REALLY comfy ralph lauren armchairs/ottomans in King rooms, a fancy-shmancy espresso thing...... i would go back tomorrow.....(only had 1 issue..i was WALKING into the hotel in the HOT with 2 suitcases, past 4 uniformed marriott doormen/bellmen/valets and not ONE asked me-a solo female traveler, if i needed help..in 95 degree weather and 150% humidity! the manager made me happy though...[/quote] Thanks for the reply. Sounds great. I am a Marriott elite member so that will be nice. Can't wait.
