  1. GREAT REVIEW!!! I came on here tonight specifically to look for you. For some reason I thought you were sailing April 27th. 😂 I’m glad you took so many food pics - they’re so awesome! Loved seeing some of the Haven food. It’s right up my alley! And what an awesome surprise for your wife! Love the suite... our inside cabin was probably the size of your master bedroom. haha Thanks so much for taking the time to post this. 😊
  2. Yes, you definitely can. A few in our party would order multiple apps or two different dinners. They’re just as accommodating in the DR as Carnival. You’ll love it! :)
  3. We managed to only have 1 pina colada all week and I had 1 pineapple juice with Malibu. That’s it. But we’re not big drinkers. Although, I would’ve loved having a daiquiri or pina colada everyday! 😂
  4. That’s amazing!! Have a great time and enjoy your aft balcony!
  5. You guys are brave. We actually waited until our kids were 8 & 10 before we took them on their first real vacation which was a cruise. Before that it was little road trips for 2 days. But you are absolutely correct... the difficult memories do fade away over time. However, you will never forget the great times you all enjoy together. 😊
  6. Ahh yes, the wonderful two’s. Our 2nd gave us good run. He went from terrible two’s to horrible three’s. LOL We refused to do stuff as well until he was in a better stage. So I totally get it. Either way, you’ll have a great time. I can’t wait to see some photos. 😊
  7. But Tom, after seeing all my good food... you have to go out!! LOL How old are your kiddos?
  8. Thank you. I got an iPhone XR just before the cruise so used that for all of my photos. Most of the DR photos were darker actually, I lightened them all up. lol During the day when we were able to sit by windows it was perfect.
  9. Calma - Pedro Capo and Farruko (Currently #1 Latin song) Shotgun - George Ezra Woke up late - Drax Project ft. Hailee Steinfeld Echa Pa’lla - Pitbull (You’ll hear this all cruise on the ship) Taki Taki - DJ Snake Danza Kudro - Don Omar Feels like home - Sigala Sangria Wine - Pharrell Williams and Camila Cabello These are some of my favourites currently that I had on my playlist earlier this month for our cruise. Others have been mentioned already. 😊
  10. Last breakfast was a feast. We were getting off at 9:30am so had plenty of time for the DR. 😃 Not many pics...sooo tired and sad. lol ‘I ordered the bagel with smoked salmon without the bagel. I was impressed with the presentation. Flipped the salmon over to my egg plate and had one perfect breakfast. And no that’s it for cruise food. Hope I made you all drool. 😂🤤😋
  11. Last day on the cruise. What a sad day...packing and trying to take everything in. Thankfully we had perfect weather all week. We had to go to O’Sheehan’s for our last lunch. We all tried the fajitas. I got the steak fajitas and kids got chicken. But they tore apart their plates before I could take a photo. And by now...they were sick of my iPhone. lol Seared Sea Scallops Crunchy Mediterranean Salad French Onion Soup Boston and Red Leaf Lettuce Salad Roasted Prime Rib Same dish - angle #2 lol Mozzarella and basil stuffed chicken breast Seafood Orzo - DD and I both got this. Very very good!! ‘We skipped dessert in the DR and went for our last crepes. 😋
  12. They did have the dancing as well. It was in the Tropicana. The Live band only plays during certain times. I also carry a mini cross body purse with me which has hand sanitizer that we can all use. But the Washy Washy staff was really good to have as well. 😂 We really enjoyed everything besides the dessert. I would definitely go back. You do need reservations and they’re only open for dinner. We reserved through the app a day before for 5pm. Have an amazing time on your cruise and good luck limiting the desserts! LOL
  13. Nice refreshing salad for lunch. Tonight we went to Shanghai’s Noodle Bar for dinner. I was so happy this was complimentary. Fried Pot Stickers Vegetable Spring Rolls with Sweet Chilli Sauce Steamed Shrimp Dumplings Peking Style Shrimp and Chicken Noodles Vegetarian Fried Rice Singapore Noodles Spicy Seafood Udon Noodles - this one was mine! So good!!! This desert is a mix of melons if i remember correctly. Not sure what the white sauce was but we weren’t the biggest fan of this. We ended up at Garden Cafe for sweets 😂
  14. In Cozumel we stopped by the Mega Mart. If you have never been here, it’s kind a like a Walmart. Inside they have a little café and they offer free wifi. We did not buy any Internet on the ship and enjoyed disconnecting from the world but did take advantage of the Wi-Fi here to check in on emails. I took a few pictures of the goodies they offer… not like we needed anything with all the goodies offered on the ship . LOL But just in case you want to try local sweets, they have quite the selection.
