  1. I am trying to decide between a aft wrap on deck 9 or deck 8 on the Vista. Is there any big differences between the aft wraps on deck 8 vs 9? Is one decks balcony larger? Or does one deck have a sofa and the other not? Thanks.
  2. Definitely 16001. We love having a balcony but I would choose this room every time. The extra space is great, the view is amazing, and we really like having the solarium. And since the windows can slide open we didn't feel closed in at all.
  3. Absolutely love aft wraps. We currently have one booked for our Alaska trip next year and I just looked at my booking and it was made 599 days out. I also like regular aft balconies though - love the view of the wake and the deeper balcony space.
  4. We are booked on NCL Breakway out of New Orleans on December 13, 2020 and then an Alaskan cruise on Carnival Freedom out of Seattle on June 15, 2021.
  5. I am booked December 2020 and cannot see anything out of New Orleans until late 2021. However, mine is still showing on MyNCL as well.
  6. The transportation was great. They arrange it via Costa Maya Taxis and our driver confirmed our pickup time with us as we drove out - and Natasha had also inquired about it about a week before we arrived. I got his card for next time - and as soon as I find it I'll post his information here. He was so much fun to talk too and we learned so much about Mahahual. All of my communication with them was good. We did the VIP package and $250 of the cost is for food/drink. We had 4 of us and we did not skimp on our drinks (although 2 of us are not real heavy drinkers), the guacamole, and the large variety meal that I posted pictures of and did not go over the $250. For the first 2 hours we had the place to ourselves. It is an amazing place to spend the day - just be sure to go their hungry.
  7. We just returned from our 3rd stay in a Haven 2 bedroom suite and although we have never needed the sofa to be made out I have no doubt that if asked, they will convert it each day for you. We have always received excellent service in the Haven - and it definitely spoils you.
  8. This was our first visit to Costa Maya (March 11th) and we absolutely fell in love with it. I hope to go spend a week - or more -sometime. I have never encountered such wonderful people - every person we met was amazing. I cannot even imagine how this is affecting them.
  9. On our recent cruise on the Pearl we docked at Costa Maya. I had researched a lot of places and decided to book Hayhu Beach club - and I am so glad I did. It is absolutely beautiful, the service is amazing, and the food...oh my gosh....the food is the best that we had on the entire trip. If you want an absolutely wonderful experience, in a very private and relaxed setting - this is the place for you. They arranged our transportation and our driver was great. The drive there took about 25 minutes and was a very pleasant drive. Upon arrival we were shown to our "deck" which had loungers, a table, additional seats, and a private bathroom and shower. The sand on their beach is some of the softest sand that I have ever encountered. Everyone we met was very friendly and service oriented. Their guacamole is delish! And the meats, etc are wonderful. This is a place that we will definitely return to.
  10. Everything is great so far. Yes...that is our itinerary as well and we have had no problems.
  11. Maik Reichelt is the General Manager on Pearl and Anoop Bhanu is the Concierge.
  12. I am currently on the Pearl and crew is serving in the buffet. This began on Day 2 around lunch time.
  13. We will be at Harvest Cay today and have been told we are tendering. We have also been told to expect delays because of increased sanitizing. They will be sanitizing the tenders after each group...so the tender will load...go to HC...be sanitized...load...go to ship....be sanitized...
  14. The cruise seems full and we are having a great time. We ate at Le Bistro last night and they are also using paper disposable menus. And as diners finished eating and before the next group was sat the edges of the chairs were sprayed with disinfectant and wiped down as was the tabletop. We are loving the Pearl and have not seen signs of any sick crew...as mentioned above.
  15. the buffet is no longer self serve. They now have crew serving everyone. We also got a call that the Haven VIP party with the Captain tonight has been cancelled.
