  1. Hi, New to RCL. We're taking a three day weekend cruise to the Bahamas next week. 2 questions... Is there a formal night, and what is the minimum dress requirement to be allowed into the MDR? Yes, I know RCL posts guidelines, but so many lines don't follow them. Are dress pants and a nice shirt okay? Do I need a jacket and tie? If you need more cash in the casino, some lines allow you to get cash in the casino on your S&S and they post it as a purchase, so you don't get slammed with cash advance fees. What does RCL do? Thanks folks!

    Have been to Nassau a few times, but not in a few years now. Will be there on a Saturday in October. Question... Is it still safe to walk around say Bay street, and on up to the Fort? I've never felt unsafe in Nassau, but I'm always reasonably cautious also. It's gotten so much bad press lately, I just wanted to check. Please, I know many hate Nassau, but I've been there. Just asking about safety.
  3. Can you snorkel on your own in Coco cay? I have everything I need, including an inflatable vest. If so, is there much to see? Or would an excursion be better?
  4. The carnival website says the same thing.
  5. I'm answering because no one else has. A few years ago you could. As I said above, I haven't been on Carnival in a few years. Since nothing else has seemed to change, I would think (?) that is also probably the same.
  6. What I'm mainly asking is: If I leave my phone on, with the data off, will it generate fees even if no one calls or texts me (and I don't call or text.) Meaning just leave it on if someone needs to contact me urgently.
  7. Yes, texts on the ship, in case there is something urgent at home.
  8. I intend to leave my 4g data turned off on the ship. If I leave the phone on in case of an incoming text, would I incur fees? Aprox what does it cost to send/recieve a text? Thanks
  9. We have a long daytime tour that fulfills the people to people rule. When it's over, we might like to go back on the ship to change clothes, clean up. If we get back off, do we have to fill out a 2nd "guest affidavit for travel to Cuba?" When we reboard after the first tour, are we required to convert our CUCs back to dollars? And lastly, is the Visa okay for going in and out of the port all day? Or do you need a new Visa each time? Thanks
  10. Haven't been on Carnival in a couple of years. It used to be that you could use your S&S card to put cash in your casino account from your credit card on file. At the time it was treated as a purchase, meaning no big fees charged for cash advance. Does it still work this way?
  11. Taking a long tour during the day. Thinking about just strolling around near the ship in the evening. Is that part of Havana safe at night, and do the stores stay open in the evening? Thanks
  12. How late can I exchange my CUC back to dollars in the cruise terminal? If I don't have much left to exchange, is it cool to leave them for the ship crew as an additional tip? Thanks
  13. I'm on the same cruise. Hoping to see some answers, but it doesn't look promising. There are almost no reviews on the Carnival main site, so it's hard to tell.
  14. You have a head start on me. What have you found out? Thanks
  15. Roughly how much is 180 CUC in dollars?
  16. Will be going to Cuba on a cruise end of October. Our passports expire mid January. Is that going to fly? I know some countries want you to have 6 months left before it expires. Does anyone know the aprox turn around time currently for renewals?
