  1. My sister in law cruised with her minor niece, different last names and had no problem. I’ve cruised with my minor son without my husband and had no issues either.
  2. By breaker, do you mean a surge protector? If you do, they are not allowed on cruise ships. A power strip without that is fine. I like to bring an empty gift card so I can keep the power in the room on while I am out and about. No more dead camera batteries this way. As mentioned before: A battery powered light for the bathroom at night. Magnetic clips. Post it notes. I prefer a card holder type lanyard. Its easy to slip my card in and out plus I can carry a few bills for extra tips when I don't have pockets.
  3. My son was booked but didn’t sail with us on our 2017 cruise and without our requesting it, we got a refund of his port fees and taxes back to the credit card we booked with about 2 months later.
  4. Walked off the Escape with my luggage a week ago. I had an ideal walkoff. Here is my timeline: 7:45 - Ship cleared customs 7:57 - left my cabin (14 aft) 8:38 - was walking out of the terminal. Pick up is across the street on 12th Avenue. If you are under the customs limits, you no longer have to fill out a customs declaration. Disembarkation was forward, but once we cleared customs we were told we could go aft as well - you still wound up walking towards, and leaving, forward, but it seemed to still be faster that way as my cousin who left well before me got out maybe 2 min before me. Good luck and enjoy your cruise.
  5. Like Glass is exactly how we described it as well. I personally thought this was the smoothest cruise I’ve ever been on.
  6. They wound up getting other boats to ferry us and times were changed. The ride was a lot longer than the paid ferry.
  7. Yes, it is fine for children. I saw at least 3 of them there. As a matter of fact, one was a young girl - maybe 3-4 yrs old who was a pleasure to watch. She was smiling and clapping and enjoyed the show as much and I did. lol
  8. Dinner service is very fast and eaten before the show show starts. I’d say count on about 1hrs 15min until you start leaving.
  9. Menu and my take on the show: Beer (no opinion on it as I despise beer) Potted Salmon appetizer which since I don’t eat seafood was substituted with a mixed greens salad. Very good. Bangers and Mash (sausage & mashed potatoes & Savoy cabbage) entree. Meh Bread pudding and strawberries and whipped cream for dessert. Both were OK but not like bread pudding that I’m used to. Although the food wasn’t to our liking, the 4 Of us thought the show was wonderful and well worth the charge even without eating dinner. They have great voices, they were very interactive with the audience and it was a lot of fun. Two thumbs up.
  10. On the Escape now and it is still $4.99 a minute. 👍🏼👍🏼
  11. .50 cents for outgoing texts. .10 cents for incoming. Have your calls forwarded to your voicemail to avoid charges for unanswered calls.
  12. I have AT&T and still had service when I texted a friend at 9:52. It was probably only 1 bar though and I shut off my service right after that.
  13. 6:52 and we just started moving! Woot woot!!!
