  1. Yes, There were great. We have used them twice to Uxmal. The first time I booked ahead and we were were going to do Chichen Itza. We messed up at the meet time was at the bus and not outside the ship. (Note the Pier is 5 miles long). They let us join the Uxmal Tour with no issues. We went in a Custom Van. The second time we booked right there on the pier after we got off the ship. We went in an Airport Shuttle style van. Both times they were direct trips there, no stops at the roadside tourist traps. We got there about 20 minutes before the Carnival excursion (which is operated by AutoProgresso) so we beat the crowds. The last time we were in Progresso we did the beach tour through Carnival (just as info)
  2. Another supporter of QLS. We have used them multiple times.
  3. We have done Uxmal twice out of Progresso. We used Autoprogresso for the tour which was much cheaper than Carnival. The first time we went we were in a small van which allowed us to get there much quicker than the tour bus.
  4. I just looked for July and August sailings out of Mobile and New Orleans and there is nothing showing. Last week July out of Mobile was showing a rate of $92 pp.
  5. You could buy the Fascination or Imagination.
  6. Interested in the answers as well
  7. On our last trip the texting worked just Ok if it was person to person, Group texting did not work at all. The texting feature is great for parents as kids start to go off on their own.
  8. Nice to read a topic where an issue was resolved without having to contact the Brand Ambassador. I’m glad you enjoyed your trip.
  9. I agree with your points. We just did Mr Sanchos in October and enjoyed it, but we enjoy Nachi more. One thing to remember that in January the water will be a tad chilly, regardless which one you choose.
  10. We have two kids now 14 & 12 and go down twice a year. WW2 Museum Aquarium is one of the best in the nation. Big fan of French Quarter Phantoms. We have done all tours. You can get good deals on Groupon. We have done several other of the Ghost and Vampire Tours with different groups, All have been OK some better than others. The fire station in the French Quarter sells Tshirts for $15. The Police station sells them for $20. Cafe Du Monde and cafe beignet are great. Cafe Beignet on Bourban has a Jazz Trio in the mornings. Favorite Breakfast in the Quarter is at the Ruby Slipper. Check out the Creole Creamery first some interesting flavors. Look at the Jazzy Pass for aces to the trolly. On and off all day for $3 per person.
  11. I just looked scootaround offers rentals for $75 a week for &40 more full insurance. The link is on the Carnival site under guest with disabilities. This is where we rented ours.
  12. Getting this back on topic. I would rent a wheel chair for the week. I think it was about $100-&125. It was in the cabin when we arrived and left it when we left. Our son had just turned 12 and broke his femur a month before the cruise. The did a new procedure so he did not have a cast and only a titanium rod inserted in his leg. We were given clearance to travel. It was to late to switch to a handicapp room even working through guest services. The wheelchair was a lifesaver for us. He was still able to participate in things and he did not get over tired. He was able to go to camp, but his sister was the only one who could push him per Carnival rules. We did have some challenges and it was a very different cruise. I can go into more details but I don’t want to hijack your thread and not sure how experienced a cruiser you are. Short answer get the wheelchair
  13. So sorry for your loss. Top her will be missed. This tread brought a tear to my eye.
  14. We sailed the Glory in October and had 9200. The Grand Scenic that sleeps 4. Our favorite room. cant say enough great things about The Ruby Slipper. My favorite place in NOLA.
