  1. We have 4 and absolutely fell the mini is worth the cost. The extra space with a real size shower and not having to dance with a shower curtain is so nice. Sent from my SM-G950U using Forums mobile app

    Probably a Stupid Casino Question

    We got Casino cards at the desk. I don't like the thought of accidentally leaving my room card in a machine.
  4. We know we are the parents and the kids know we are the parents. We will be doing things together and having our meals together. I was more concerned about if something unexpected comes up, like if our son twists his ankle playing basketball...or if one of them starts feeling sick. We do love spending time together, but we also enjoy different activities and allowing our kids some autonomy to hang out with new friends.
  5. We will be sailing on Escape with an 11 yr old and a 13 yr old. I know we have the option of allowing the 11 yr old to check himself out of splash after a couple hours and I believe the 13 yr old has the ability to come and go from Entourage. My question is to parents of teens as to how you handled keeping in touch. Our previous experience with Iconcierge was that it was unreliable. Should we consider the social media package to use messenger? Is it more reliable? Did you just leave notes and/or require regular check-in times? Thanks in advance for sharing your experiences and advice.

    Cas - how much gambling to get balcony offer

    I recently read posts about "URComped" that will aggregate your gambling to get you offers. You upload pictures of offers you have from cruise or land based casinos, as well as copies of your cards. Unfortunately I tossed the last few offers I received so I am on hold with the process until new ones come in. It's worth at least checking into.

    Safe to wear jewelry/diamonds?

    I am also among the better safe than sorry crowd. While I do wear my good jewelry on the ship, it goes in the safe when we go into port. Sent from my SM-G950U using Forums mobile app

    Can I bring this onboard?

    You can bring a box of the individual size creamers. Sent from my SM-G950U using Forums mobile app
  9. Our son is 11. We know we can sign a waiver saying he can check himself out after 2 hours, but can he sign himself back in if he wants to return? TIA Sent from my SM-G950U using Forums mobile app

    Bliss - Live 4/21

    Doug and Sue - many thanks for sharing your time, talent and vacation with all of us. I always look forward to your stories and pictures. I know it is an extra expense and takes time, but please know how much enjoyment it brings to those of us that follow along. Can't wait for your next adventure! Most of us would love to have the opportunity to sail with you someday.

    Bliss - Live 4/21

    I think they are amazing inside and out. It is always love at first sight for me! Never fails to bring tears to my eyes. As always, thank you so much for taking the time to share your vacation and family with us, Doug! Sent from my SM-G950U using Forums mobile app
  12. We would like to be in the middle of the city that never sleeps so that we can take in as much as we can. My hubby would like to see a show on Broadway as well. I wish we had more time to explore. The free breakfast and snacks are definitely a plus in choosing this place.
  13. We are using CC points, which equals about $500. We will have either 4 or 6 people, including 2 children. Prefer 2 queen beds and a pullout sofa.
  14. Hello cruising friends, I have only been to NYC once, in 2000, with a tour, so really don't know anything about the city. I'm thinking about booking our family at The Pearl for the night before our cruise on Escape to Bermuda (2nd time on her). We don't leave until June, so I have some time. I would appreciate feedback positive or negative about staying here. Open to other hotel suggestions as well. TIA! Robin
