  1. I’ve been looking at Long Beach also, but the tickets are almost double of what LAX costs. I don’t see them decreasing much either.
  2. We will be sailing on the Carnival Panorama in March 2020. We have sailed from various ports, but never from Long Beach. I have started looking at flights to see times that will work. It looks like the best flight for us is at 12:15pm. The ship is scheduled to arrive at 9am. We are Platinum and always do self assist, so we will be part of the first group off the ship. How long does it take to get from Long Beach to LAX on a Saturday morning?
  3. We sail on the Horizon in 18 days and visiting the same ports. Looking forward to reading about the beaches you went to in Aruba and Curaçao.
  4. Our flight does not arrive into MIA until 12:30am. We are coming in late, but still have an entire day before getting on the ship. You never know what the weather will Belize, so decide to take a flight two days before sailing. I would prefer to take Uber from MIA,but concerned about our arrival time. Has anyone had issues with using Uber on aThursday night around 12:30am or how long did you have to wait?
  5. Are there any locations within walking distance to pick up wine? We are staying at the Port of Miami Holiday Inn the night before we get on the cruise. TIA
  6. I'm looking into reserving the dune buggy excursion with Pro Excursions. Could someone explain more about the transportation from the cruise terminal to Pro Excursions? It mentioned that you take a cab both ways and Pro Excursions sets this up with a different company. Also, has anyone done this excursion recently?
  7. Looking forward to reading the rest of your review. We will be sailing on the Horizon in January with the same ports.
  8. I haven’t been able to locate an ATV tour. We are still undecided on what to do. I wish we were stopping at Amber Cove, as we did a wonderful ATV tour there.
  9. Were you able to locate an ATV tour? We would also like to do this in LaRomana, as we enjoyed it in Amber. Cove.
  10. Looking for recommendations on rental car companies at POM. Our flight does not leave until 5pm out of FLL and would like to spend the morning and early afternoon at FLL beach area. So we would return car to FLL. We have have already done a few of the post cruise excursions to other locations and just looking to walk around and enjoy a nice lunch before our flight home.
  11. Can you recommend an ATV tour from La Romana? We have been to Amber Cove, but not to LaRomana and would like to take an ATV tour not through the ship.
  12. We are sailing mid-January. We've stayed at the Holiday inn-Port of Miami in the past, looking at Miami Beach for something new. Not concerned about a resort with a beach, as we just plan on walking along Miami Beach. So trying to decide weather to stay at Holiday Inn again then Uber down to Miami Beach for the day. Then that night spend it having dinner around Holiday Inn-Port of Miami.
  13. Looking for recommendations for a pre-cruise 2 night stay at a Miami Beach hotel. Would like to stay around $150 or a little more a night also. I'm thinking that it would be easier to stay at the southern end of Miami Beach due to the ease of getting to POM too. Also, would we need to rent a car from MIA to hotel to POM or just use a cab/UBER? TIA
  14. Our family just returned from our Spring Break Cruise on the Carnival Glory. This was our 9th cruise with Carnival. I'm very disappointed with how Carnival manages the kids programs. During each of our cruises our son's have been attending the initial night mixer to meet other teenagers on the cruise. Unfortunately our high school senior was not allowed into Club O2. This was due to him already turning 18 years old. He even brought his high school ID to prove that he is attending high school. After talking to the Kids Program director to see if there is any chance of changing this we were told no that he will not be allowed into Club O2. I then asked what recommendations she has for a high school senior to meet other individuals his age. The response from her was that he can gamble, attend the late night dance club, or the comedy over 18 shows. Not really the recommendations that I was hoping for. Carnival really needs to rethink allowing high school students into Club O2! Overall he did enjoy the cruise, but it was a totally different experience then what he is used to and has decided that he won't be taking anymore cruises with us.
