  1. We bought a bottle ahead of sailing from carnival, took the opened bottle off at HMC, enjoyed our drinks at the cabana, and put it back in our beach bag, brought it back on board. As someone mentioned, discretion is key. never thought about buys one at duty free to drink at port... but we did stop at a liquor store in Nassau before heading to the resort we were enjoying...
  2. I used the electronic boarding pass when we sailed on Horizon last year. I brought the print out too, but never took I out of my carry on...until the end of the cruise to throw it away...
  3. Great trip report so far! Thanks for sharing! looking forward to more!
  4. Love reading your trip report! looking forward to more! thanks!
  5. Enjoying reading your trip report very much! So looking forward to our sailing on Breeze! thanks!
  6. Love the pics! Thanks again for sharing! We signed up for the excursion, looking forward to it!
  7. Thanks for sharing your experience! We just booked this for our next cruise on Breeze. Excited to see Mayan ruins! I hope you can get your photos up, would love to see them! How much time time was left at the port before having to get back on board? Was there much to do?
  8. We did the thermal suite pass on Horizon last summer. I was worried we might not get enough use out of it, but decided to go for it when a code came out. We endedup using it every day, twice a day a couple times. Loved every minute of it! Already have it booked for our Breeze sailing next summer! That coupon code in February helped us over that line again too...lol!
  9. Enjoying the trip report! Looking forward to experiencing Breeze next summer! thanks for sharing!
  10. Thanks for sharing your thoughts! We are looking forward to experiencing the Breeze next summer! Did you do do any of the movies by the pool?
  11. I see the new one on an iPad, and the old one on the laptop! 😎
  12. Here are a couple pics of the nook the couch is in. Worked out very nicely! If we were cruising without our LO, I would think it is a very off place for the couch, and would probably not be used much except to toss things on. You can see in one pic, the tv is not even close to being in the sight lines sitting there...lol!
  13. I ordered the pasta dish as a side last June on Horizon, waiter didn’t question at all. Go for it! Sometimes it is better than the apps they are offering.
  14. We had 2497 last June, loved the room arrangement, and the balcony was great! Amazing views at sea, and loved listening to the wake. Having he couch in that nook made for a great space for our LO to bunk down. We brought the magnet hooks and a heavy black shower curtain, blacked the space out for his bedtime, while we had the rest of the room and balcony. Worked out well. Only issue we had with the location was some cavitation from the propellor underneath. Didn’t bother me much, nice rocking to sleep. It did bother my wife though, a bit more sway than she would prefer. Loved the family harbor lounge and amenities, free night owls babysitting one night, free kids meals at the pay restaurants. Would love to sail on Horizon again, 8 days were far from enough to experience even half of what the ship offers! Probably would choose a family harbor cove next time though, perhaps avoid the cavitation issues...
  15. Enjoying your trip report! Nice chance to relive some of our Horizon experiences from last year! thanks for sharing!
  16. I only selected my own name - I didn't see the option to add the second name. Did this last time too - no problems.
  17. Heads up! The 20% off spa sale is now open until 2/14. just got the thermal suite for 2 for $175 for the week we sail on Breeze! Loved it on our Horizon sailing last summer, looking forward to dropping the LO off at Camp Ocean, and heading to the thermal suite again!
  18. Our sailing in June 2020 also disappeared today. Tried to check for price changes...my usual search did not bring it up, then I went another way, pulling up the ship, Breeze, and clicking into sailings offered. It was there, and could see there are cabins open. No price drop though...
  19. We used the $5 per person, per sailing, text feature on Horizon. Worked well for us when we used it. For $5 you can’t go wrong. Had to refresh the app a few times, but worked consistently like any other app...
  20. Good choice! We had one of thes bowling alley balconies on Miracle and Pride, loved spending time out there!
  21. We bought the package on Horizon last summer, with that 15% off code too. We dropped our LO off at camp ocean, which he loved, then enjoyed our time at cloud 9, which we loved, every day. Planning to purchase it again for our Breeze sailing, hoping JH posts another code at Valentine’s Day again! 😏😎
  22. You can also get the large liter sized water bottles in the MDR. Ask for one every time you are there. Great size to take ashore too! dont get the bottles they are offering as you go ashore, they are not included in cheers, you will be charged.
  23. You could also just turn off the phone’s roaming capability to be sure you stay on your network, right? I have mine set as a rule, and had no issues in San Juan last summer.
  24. We got the bonus last summer on debarked morning last summer on Horizon too. Not only several spiked coffees, but we went back for cans of soda and bottles of water to take with us. If that is not the norm, we are thankful for the bonus!
  25. The pool does go right under the screen, but the far side of the pool was out far enough to still enjoy the movie. Our LO was swimming around with his life vest on while we hung on the edge of the pool watching the movie. Good times!
