    Cool Cruiser
  1. We were on the Horizon in September and I thoroughly enjoyed Cookie! He's so funny and makes the mundane messages, not mundane. Gerry was also a lot of fun. I did feel for Cookie during the Newlywed Game. The young couple kind of gave us a jaw dropping moment: "If you had a parrot in the bedroom, what would he say the most?" Choke me...... There was this moment of complete silence. Like we were ALL sitting there going: "Did they just say what I think they said?" However Cookie recovered. Got it back on track. And I'm pretty sure he was giving them covert side eye for the rest of the game...
  2. I've done it. Once...... Granted, my skin felt amazing afterwards. However! If you can't stand being confined or swaddled, this isnt for you. You get the seaweed slathered on you and then they wrap a heavy kind of blanket thing that helps you sweat out a small lake. I felt like a giant baked potato. But again, my skin felt amazing afterwards.
  3. Great, great bar! I'm not sure what I drank, but they were great drinks.
  4. I've been on RC, NCL and now Carnival. For the most part, its little things that make them different. Like whimsical drinks and directions on the floor. But the one consistent thing I have found on all three cruise lines is an outstanding staff.
  5. Also. Fish on the carpet. It's a little thing, but of the 3 I've been on, NCL, makes it easy to know what direction you are going. If you walk with the fish, you're heading to the front. If you walk against the fish, you're heading to the back. On Carnival, my wonderful cabin steward, would often have to tell me I was going in the wrong direction to my room. And that is why i fully appreciate the Norwegian fish.
  6. Having just experienced Guy burgers for the first time in the last month, that will, WILL, be tested. Because those are glorious burgers. So glorious I wish they were available on land. So tasty that if there wasn't already a song called Cheeseburger in Paradise, it would inspire said song to be written.

  8. It worked on the Horizon. My friend would get her and her husband's coffee at the same time when she had his key card. It also worked that way for cocktails. He would take our key cards and bring us back drinks. Also! Plan ahead for port waters. I forgot that they charge for water you pick up on the gangway. So I just ordered bottles to store in the room fridge and take off the boat with me.
  9. We were on the Horizon 2 weeks ago. Used the HUB, it was handy. However the chat function didn't work so great. We stopped relying on it to try to contact each other.
  10. The rooms were cool, but there are some strange warm spots around the ship. Only time it was bad was waiting for elevators.
  11. I was on the previous Horizon sailing and we thought the lines were so bad because of Jamaica...... This was one of the things I addressed on the after cruise survey. Not a complaint, but an observation: I've cruised NCL and RC before, first time Carnival. I understand standing in line to get through security because you don't want any "Island Pharmacy" being brought on board.....But the other cruise lines provide awnings, cool towels, water and music/entertainment while waiting to board. It makes it bearable. Everyone was miserable until you got to the shade of the ship! People were even murmuring "Just let them bring the pot on board and get me out of the sun!"
  12. I also have curly, wavy hair and I use Wen. It works great! One thing that helps with the frizz is to use a tiny amount of conditioner, work it through wet hair and don't rinse it off. And if that doesn't work? I embrace the philosophy of: Salty Air. Messy Hair. I Don't Care!
  13. Hi! I'm a solo traveler and have been to all 3 solo. I went to Falmouth, Jamaica. Did a city tour and then wandered around. Cozumel. I've been to Paradise Beach and Chankanaab. Both were fine, but I preferred Paradise. The cab ride is the most costly part of the excursion as a solo. Cayman Islands. I started at Cemetery Beach and just walked. There were many times when there was no one else around and then you'd come across a crowd. I never felt uncomfortable because there are buildings all along the shore. I'll check back if you have more questions.
  14. Has anyone used the sugar straws? Can you actually get a drink out of them. Or am I going to go cross eyed trying to get liquid refreshment to my mouth?
