  1. Customs at the port took an hour. We need Global Entry! Left the ship at 8 am and in taxi by 9am. Five customs agents. Do not use first line as they also add in handicap pass with same custom agent making the line much slower. We also used luggage valet. Worked out great. Airport a breeze as we have sky priority with Delta. Three hours until our flight.
  2. Reflection on 1/4/2019 prices did not change. Holiday cruises do not offer dining packages. We found this out by calling Captains Club.
  3. Interesting. We always book onboard for the obc. Also one or two perks, depending on class of cabin. But never have we received a bottle of wine or other gifts. Do you receive these extra gifts only by booking on the first day? Never booked on day one as there is always so much going on.
  4. We leave on the Reflection for a 14 day cruise in a little over a month. Thanks for posting the dessert and dinner menus. Looking forward to lots of great meals!
  5. Just upgraded our 1/4/19 booking with a 30% discount, $7/day +18% = $8.26/day for 14 days = $115.64 pp. If you like the Martini Bar or a glass of wine just two drinks/day will break even. 1/31/20 booking is not included. For a 14 day cruise at 30% off I figure it's not going to get any better so might as well pay for the upgrade out of my OBC. Not sure how they decide what bookings are included. Atwell just checked and stated sailings up to May 11, 2020. I'll check again in a few days.
  6. Great topic. Living in the cold and snowy Tundra of Minnesota, a 14 day Caribbean Cruise is a respite from winter. We like the ABC islands and prefer a 14 day cruise. Interesting to see what you chose.
  7. Thanks PRH. My mobility is improving. Exercises twice daily helps but still difficult sitting in low places and then standing back up. It’s hard to explain. I can walk longer distances and go up and down stairs with a handrail.
  8. Where can I find info on the AmEx cruise credit?
  9. I also noticed the price increase. Our sailing is Jan 2019 so I’ve been waiting for a sale. Second guessing myself and wish I would have booked it earlier.
  10. Sorry to hear about your experience with Blue Waters. But thanks for telling us so we will not go to their resort. I have not had this sort of treatment before.

    Blue Bay Beach

    Thanks! From the pictures on their site it looks like a great beach close to pier. We’ve been to Playa Porto Marie that we loved except for the taxi price ($50 each way).
  12. You can order a water with another beverage. My dh has ordered double on the rocks wo any problem.
  13. Looking at this excursion for January 2019. With limited mobility I’m thinking the Mystic looks more doable. Worried about the ladder on the Creole. It will be 3 months post bilateral knee replacement. My biggest hurdle is standing from a low sitting position. Any suggestions from others that have mobility issues?
  14. I’m searching and have yet to find an excursion on sale. Very frustrating. 😤
