  1. I have a question regarding the way the 25% will be applied. If you are not the 1st/2nd person listed on reservation, will they give you 25% of the reduced 3rd/4th/5th fare. On my August cruise on the Breeze the 3rd and 4th were $10 on one room and $70 on the other. Obviously thats an extreme case but even $239 vs $1019 is substantial. Thank you for any assistance.
  2. My husband it over 300lbs. He slid and used the wooden ladders. They didn't say anything and there were life vests to fit him.
  3. JH posted it was changing very soon. I’m hoping that means by November. The lanyards were nice to me but I don’t need another. My kids liked their lanyards. Me and my husband didn’t use ours but we can just keep as extras when one of the four of them lose theirs.
  4. Yes the taxi stays the whole time. We left most stuff in the van but did pay for the locker for wallets etc and my husbands stuff and shoes. I'm back. Thanks for the info. We got a van that fit 7 of us. After 5 ppl its supposed to add more money per person. They told me $120 Round Trip. I said of I though it was $100. he said yes but the extra people and showed me the chart. He then said ok $100. We didn't argue of anything. Maybe they are just used to people haggling. The walk for the kids(10-16) was easy. For us chunky folks....it was a bit harder. Honestly is was the 3675365362 stairs. The uphill/distance didn't bother me. My husband nor younger daughter could swim and they were both fine. They did allow ladder use for a few as my husband was not comfortable doing most of the jumps/slides.
  5. I was on the 8/24 sailing of the Breeze. I too was surprised at what I saw in regards to the dining room chairs. Our table for 12 had mostly stained chairs. The chairs are a reddish burgundy color and the dark stains on then had you making sure it wasn’t fresh grease to stain your clothes. We sat at another table for Brunch and those were stained but not nearly as bad as our dinner table. The only other think I noticed was the smell. We were deck 7 aft. I’ve smelled a waft of sewage before in my 22 cruises but it was kinda bad for most of the cruise. I only used the public restroom once and it was clean. My cruise wasn’t ruined but there were some noticeable negatives.
  6. Thank you so much for this info. Cant wait to do it next week.
  7. Me at 34 husband 36 daughter 7 daughter 10 son 9 son 13 We definitely spend less money now. When my youngest daughter turned 1 we started cruising multiple times a year. Now that we cruise so much nothing is “needed”. We buy a ship magnet every time and we still buy some port of call photos but those are payed for by the $100 per room stock credit. We we used to spend in the arcade but they get a few games free each with platinum status. I can can definitely see where they would get the cruise more spend less although I’m sure it can be the opposite too.
  8. We are a group of 15(6 adults, 9 kids). We would like to do the Falls on our own but wanted to verify how many people can fit in the vehicles. In other ports I know they have cars and vans but was unsure what the maximum anyone recalls seeing would be. I noticed on another post someone said they took a 4 person car. I was hoping that wasn't the only option. Thank you for any assistance.
  9. THe limit you set online is the total limit. I set one for my kids every cruise. The problem comes if you don’t prepay gratuity, when they put them on your account it maxes the limit which is silly. I normally give then $50 and by day 3 when the gratuity hits, it refuses them purchase.
  10. This is my concern also. I have my Girl Scout troop booked in 5 cabins specifically for Cuba. We had a whole thing planned around learning the culture etc. I know it’s not the cruise lines fault but I we are still disappointed. I hope there will be decent ports and a price drop or the option to change without penalty. NY itineraries are expensive but adding Cuba made it even more so. We will see...
  11. They will stop you if its not the same stateroom. However if the dad is already off the ship its easier. If not they interrogate you to the nth power. I had issues taking my kids off every time. We cruise multiple times a year. Every ship is the same thing. We use two room because we have 4 kids. They aren't rude of anything. They just want to make sure. Make sure your cabins are linked.
