  1. We have parked at Port of Miami too many times to count. We usually arrive between 10:30 and 11 and, so far, have never had this problem. We have easily found a parking place. I hope this was a one time occurrence, and I am so sorry that this happened to you.
  2. I have read where people used the casino to obtain cash from their onboard account but I found a post where it sounded like it was discouraged by casino management. Has anyone had any experience with this? We didn't want to take a lot of cash but wanted, if needed, a place to easily obtain cash from our on board account. Thank you!
  3. How was the snorkeling at Turtle Beach?
  4. Pete, When I look at the deck plans, I see that our cabin is 6 doors back from the aft. I then compare it to the photo of Seaside which doesn't quite match up. I then found a video of aft cabin 14262 which shows when walking in and through the cabin and out the door, the aft cabin would be the first set of doors seen from the aft in the photo. If this was true, that would place cabin 13265 on the other side of metal balcony. I think what is confusing me is the visual difference between the deck plans and photo of Seaside. I love researching my cruises. Any balcony is plus but this one puzzled me, and I wanted your thoughts. Thank you for your input! Julie Video of aft:
  5. HI Skier, Can you tell me if cabin 13265 has a steel balcony? When I look at the deck plans and photos of Seaside, I can't tell if the decorative sash on the rear of the Seaside goes in front of our balcony or not. Thank you,
  6. Y'all have been very helpful!!! Thank you!
  7. In Grand Cayman, what is the tender ticket process for non-yacht club passengers? I am thinking that it is best to buy a MSC excursion for this port. Thank you!
  8. The foreign language that the shows are mostly in is English. The crew and staff of the MSC Seaside are very accommodating, hard-working, and polite. Sorry to hear that MSC Seaside is not Carnival; well, not really.
  9. Thanks for the review! My husband and I, along with a few other couples, were given a tour of the yacht club after we expressed an interest during a future cruises seminar. This seminar was held on one of the sea days.
  10. All seats in the Metropolitan Theatre have excellent views of the stage. There is nothing to block your line of sight anywhere. I really don't know if anyone was turned away but I did hear that at a certain time, no-show reserved seats were filled by people who were in line. We attended the second show everyday, and it was always a full house. I recommend getting to the theater at least 20 minutes ahead of time if you want prime seating.
  11. Loved your review! My husband and I had the same positive experiences except for the elevators. We didn't experience any of the elevator problems. I predict that MSC will soon take over the American market.
  12. Thank yโ€™all!!! No problem, Formula280SS! I took it as all in good fun!
  13. Yet, you copied the whole thing to say you were concerned about the non-paragraphs. But, I do agree that I should have separated my commentary into paragraphs; I had copied directly from my review that I posted on CruiseCritic and didn't check the format. I will immediately go on another cruise so that I can submit another review and correct my mistake! LOL Something that I left from my review concerns the Metropolitan Theater. Having traveled on the DIvina and the Poesia, the only thing that underwhelmed us at first was the Metropolitan Theater. It was much smaller and less glamourous than the theaters on either the DIvina or the Poesia. However, after the first night, we didn't think to compare again because the shows were so good! The intimacy of the theater worked because the actors and singers would often come out into the audience. So the theater design was more about making it more about the show and less about the showcase. Thank you everyone for your feedback!
  14. I signed up for the Cruise Critic Meet and Mingle Party here on this site. The Meet and Mingle Tab is at the top of this page. An invitation is sent to your cabin a day or two before the party.
