  1. Our three are LeBistro, Teppanyaki, and LaCucina. We will try Moderno at some time. We tried Cagneys twice and were disappointed each time.
  2. Sailed BA three times recently. Have not seen a Mexican restaurant.
  3. San Diego is considered to be a challenging approach and landing by pilots.
  4. BA does not have any show like the Quest. If you haven't seen Rock of Ages and like '80s rock. it is probably worth the trip. However, not everyone loves it.
  5. You are more into your beer than I am. I avoid beers that come in 16oz aluminum bottles. In my part of PA, the go to beer is Yuengling Lager, which is (IMO) the nectar of the gods. I try others if they are not too unusual. Yuengling is not offered on cruise ships, but I am still hopeful. On my Breakaway cruises, I pick a beer of the day. I took a 14 day cruise and ran out of beers that I would drink. With the beverage package, I could see me taking a European tour in the Caribbean.
  6. Disembark early. Things tend to shut down a bit earlier on Saturday in Bermuda.
  7. Thanks. I was ok. I was on a private island and the woman was not paying attention while driving her scooter. She was driving with one hand. The other had some kind of island concoction in a large souvinier sippy cup.
  8. Never been on Escape. I am now curious about their beer menu and what beers would be over $15, even at inflated cruise prices.
  9. We flew United Newark to Miami 6:45 departure. Return was on American 1:30 departure.
  10. Just remembered this. DW and SIL like spinning classes. They reserved all of the spinning classes for the week. They took the first class and thought that the class was fine, but the equipment was in disrepair and potentially unsafe, particularly the foot stirrups. (Note, that I do not do spin classes, so I not be using proper terminology.) They cancelled their remaining reservations for the week.
  11. You will have a good time on the Breakaway. There is a differences between sales pitches and extra charges. There are things, beyond the sales pitches, that you need to be aware of. Both lines are big on sales pitches. NCL seems to have more upcharges and fine print than Royal. The SDP is not all encompassing, several restaurants have added surcharges to the SDP. Some restaurants may or may not limit you to one appetizer or side dish with your meal. I did not encounter surcharges or appy limits on Royal. There is a $15 limit on the beverage package. There are a few popular mass market drinks, mainly martinis, that are $18. You will pay the difference and associated gratituity. Earlier this year, NCL tried raising prices on many common drinks above the $15 limit, but reversed course after a week or two because of a customer revolt. Nothing raises customer ire more than removing a customer's favorite drink from the bar package. A big plus for NCL is the fact that you can navigate the public corridors without them being blocked by the constant "yard sale" tables that Royal has out every day.
  12. Standard BA balcony is about 32 square feet. I estimate that angled balcony is 50% larger, or 48 square feet.
