  1. Thank you for all the replies...I think we will take your advice and park at the terminal...sounds too easy to be true. Do I have to know what pier the ship leaves from before we get there or is there only one parking garage? Thanks to FLHugh for the great post.
  2. We are leaving on a cruise in Feb 2020 from Miami. We are driving to Miami from northern FL so would like any advice on where is a good place to park and dependable shuttle service to the ship. I know you can park right at the port but 22.00 a day is a little pricey. There will be 6 of us and I notice that some shuttle services only take 4 people. I need some advice from all you cruisers who have driven to Miami and parked there. Thank You
  3. We are thinking of a cruise on MSC but need some input from some seasoned travelers. How does MSC compare with Holland America, Royal Caribbean, Princess, Celebrity, etc. The price on MSC seems too good to be true so is there something we are missing or is it just a good deal? Let me know what you think of the food, cabins, entertainment, casino, and anything else. Thank you for any info you may have.
  4. I didn't know the name of the beach but I have since found out it is Saunders Beach. Thanks
  5. I understand there is a beach that is a short bus ride from the port in Nassau. Can anyone tell me if there is any shade at this beach or do you have to rent umbrellas. I know that there is a beach you can walk to from where the ship docks but this is not the beach I am talking about. Thanks for any info you may have.
  6. So does anyone actually know why certain people receive "casino offers" or "casino discounts"?? Does it matter how much you gamble in the casino or is it just a random number of people who get such offers. I have heard so many rumors as to how much money you have to gamble or how much time you must spend in the casino, that I have no idea how these offers come along. My sister who had never been on a HAL cruise before last Feb now gets casino offers via email all the time and unless they snuck down to the casino after we all retired to our rooms, then we were all in the casino together spending about the same amount of money, so none of us can understand why they keep getting these offers and no one else does.
