  1. That makes sense. But with all I have read online I think they would have been able to book the entire ship. I have about 6 girl friends that wanted to go but they thought they would have more time - I thought I would have more time! Thankfully I booked when I did!
  2. Are they not ALLOWED to book the entire ship? I guess and event is different than a charter? Could it switch from an even to a charter? They are not taking bookings anymore. Anyone else interested has to join the wait list. Kathy
  3. My daughter and I going. My daughter will be 21 (this will be her birthday gift). We are HUGE fans. She has watched this show every day since the day she was born. We are both so excited!!!!
  4. Good God I hope not!!!!! Thankfully we are sailing after V-Day!
  5. My daughter and I are booked for this sailing! We can not wait! We are both huge fans. We went to NYC to eat at the Golden Girls Cafe, Rue La Rue Cafe! It was wonderful - I was sorry to see it closed less than a year after opening - the location wasn't the best - almost an hour outside the city via the subway. When Rue passed there was a huge estate sale - I was lucky enough to buy some items - they will be coming with us on the cruise!! (estateofrue.com). And I am VERY excited to hit Key West - it is one place I have never been! Kathy
  6. I want to rent a wheelchair for my mother. We need to be off the ship early as we have a 1030am flight out of FLL. I am going to rent thru special needs at sea. How easy/fast is the return process? I know the return kiosk opens at 8am. If we get off the ship at 730 can we just leave the chair at the kiosk? What are the chances of them saying it wasn't returned? She does have a wheelchair at home that we can bring with us - but I don't think she will want to. She can walk - but not long distances. She is horrible at using a cane and walker. However, give her a shopping cart and away she goes. Any experiences with doing early debarkation and returning chair in FLL? TIA
  7. Thank you! Just ordered the drink packages online.
  8. I was wondering about this myself. My dd and I are both d+ - so we will get four 24 hour periods? Can I use all four coupons (we are in the same room) and I buy her the package on the ship? She is in college and will need to be connected to stay up with course work. Another question along these lines....drink package. In the room is me (d+), my 85 year old mom (platnium) and my 20 year old dd (d+). I want the drink package and I will probably get for my mom too. Online right now it is 20% off - $48 per day. Should I buy it now for the both of us and then when I get on board return mine and rebuy with my D+ discount? If I do this will I get the cost of my drink package back as an OBC? If so, would it be a refundable OBC? Because there is no way we will spend that amount of money on the cruise. TIA Kathy
  9. Yes, I have had them store many bottles for me.
  10. Can you recommend anything closer? TIA
  11. Need opinions... We will be in Cozumel in Nov. Looking at booking the day at once of these resorts. It will be me, my 20 year old dd and my mother - who does not walk well and refuses to use a wheelchair but might bring a walker. Which one is easier to walk? She will need to get from the cab to a chair. At some point I am sure should would like to get in the pool. Does one have an easier pool to enter than the other? Also, if my mom gets tired and needs to go back to the ship early - could we leave, bring her back to the ship and then re-enter the resort? On the flip side my dd and I might want to do something more active than sit at the pool bar and drink....which one has better activities? Food....my dd and I are vegetarians. Is one place better than the other for food? Thanks Kathy
  12. I was just looking at photos. It looks amazing and terrifying. I saw people climbing up a waterfall holding on to a rope. Is that something we have to do? It looking very scary. I have done the falls many times. I have done the bobsled. I have hung out at the beach. I have stayed on the ship. I am looking for a somewhat active tour that doesn't last all day. It will be my and my dd on the tour - my elderly mom will be on the ship and I don't want to leave her all day. Kathy
  13. I didn't do it. My family did it and it poured the entire time. They still had fun. I got off the ship and hopped on a last minute bus tour and had a wonderful time. If you do it, bring rain pants. In one of the write ups it said rain gear provided, it was not. They were pretty wet when it was done. My daughter LOVED the guides! Kathy

    Do NOT go to Earthquake park in Anchorage. The mosquitoes were out of control. We had to wrap our faces in scarfs to protect our faces. Other than that we didn't run into very many. Mosquitoes LOVE me.
  15. Prospector's Pizza was great! It is directly across the street from the lodge. One night try Karstens Public House - it is in the lodge - you can sit outside, enjoy live music and food. Tons of fun. There are even a few stores in the square selling nice souvenirs. We also hit the steak restaurant by the lobby - very good too. Kathy
