  1. Thanks so much for the review! We will be back on the Conquest for the 3rd time in October. I'm glad to read that the aft pool is adults only (and enforced - on the last few ships we have been on it seemed like the parents didn't feel the need to watch their children and the kids were out of control), and glad to read about the dining room and shows.
  2. I just read an article that there was another death at Terra Linda resort on June 13. We had planned on enjoying the pool at Amber Cove in October, however, we may just stay on the ship. And my response to the comments of how dangerous many US cities are is that, personally I would think if I'm staying at a 4* or whatever resort and do not leave the resort, I have a higher expectation of safety than if I'm walking the streets of New York, Chicago, Miami, etc., at night. People are dying and getting sick at nice resorts, not just walking around in a potentially unsafe area.
  3. Thank you so much! We love AI resorts, and it would be nice to have a swim up bar and an adult only day. Deciding between this and the blue hole/river tubing adventure
  4. Thanks for sharing! We are considering this tour and your video helps alot!
  5. Just curious if you've already done this? We're considering it for our fall cruise which stops at Ocho Rios. Thanks!
  6. I completely agree. We (were/are) supposed to go in October so our cruise is definitely not sold out, however now no new people can book and be exempt. This was my exact thought. Boooo. I just hope they don't replace with Nassau, but we will go anyway. Hopefully the price drops, especially since we are 2 months before final payment.
  7. Hello, thanks so much for the review. We are booked on the same ship and itinerary this fall. Can you please elaborate on the sushi station? Is it a pay venue such as Bonsai on the Sunshine? We enjoy sushi and are glad there is some option on the Sensation. We knew going in the dining options are limited compared to ships we're normally on....it's great to read about another option. I Any chance you walked by the piano bar? It's our favorite evening venue and are hoping it is roomy compared to the Sunshine or in a hallway like the Breeze. Our favorite was on Conquest class ships. One last question, we will disembark the Sensation then embark on the Conquest. Did you notice if the ships dock next to each other? We are planning on walking between the two ships, are in good shape, and pack pretty lightly. So long as they are docked together I don't see an issue even if it's hot. Thanks so much for your thoughts!
  8. We will be sailing on 2/1/20 from Port Everglades. We knew it will be Super bowl in Miami so definitely will be booking a hotel as soon as they open. I check frequently, especially since we wAnt to visit Superbowl City before we sail.
  9. We've done the drive twice (Fort Lauderdale to Walt Disney world, and Walt Disney world to Port of Miami) and it is an easy drive. It took us 3 to 3.5 hours both times.
  10. I snagged Hyatt Regency Downtown for $115 + tax after a coupon on Hotwire. I'm very happy with the price and hotel. Now to just wait for our departure day....in October. Haha.
  11. Thank you for the advice! I think we'll definitely stay in Downtown Miami and just Uber or Lift from FLL on Sunday night since there are just 2 of us. No great savings in Fort Lauderdale for a good hotel, and it'll save us time and money. Now to get a deal on a hotel!
  12. Hello, we are flying into FLL on a Sunday night in October for a cruise that leaves Port of Miami on Monday. We usually would stay near FLL then take QLS or MJS transportation to the port, but this time I'm concerned about traffic leaving FLL area on a Monday around 10 am. I would like to be at the port by 11:30. We are thinking about a one way car rental FLL to MIA and staying at a hotel near MIA so we are in charge of when we leave. Any thoughts? Am I worried about traffic for nothing? Thanks!
