  1. We have a shore excursion planned for the Lost Mayan Kingdom Water Park at the end of February. Does anyone happen to know if they have life vests available for kids... we are hoping to leave ours at home and this is the one stop where I am not sure if they provide them. I did message them, but have not heard back. Thank you!
  2. Do you recall, if you book just the water park, can you add on the zipline once you get there? Once inside the park, how do they know you only paid for the waterpark portion? Isn't it all one park?
  3. Do you have an option of 'adding' the zipline once there? Once in the park, how do they know you only purchased the water park vs the combined option?
  4. What is the best option for transportation from the cruise port in Fort Lauderdale to the airport for a family of 6? (kids ages 5,6, & 8, Mom, Dad & Grandma). Pre-cruise, we are staying a a hotel that has a shuttle from the airport to the hotel, and then from the hotel to the port. The last time we cruised out of Fort Lauderdale, we hired a private driver that cost $10.00/person... is that a pretty standard rate? He provided the booster seats (we will only need 1 this time, but will not be dragging one along), so that was ideal. We just want whatever will be easiest, yet cost effective. Thanks!
  5. We are very interested in the excursions to the Maya, Lost Mayan Kingdom Adventure/Water Park Royal Caribbean offers, but they all say there is a 48" height requirement. My youngest son is 44" (and likely won't grow 4" by the end of February). I have verified with quite a few other people that there is a ton of stuff he will be able to do there, though... will the ship really not allow him to go on this 'excusion' due to a few inches, even though the park has different (lower) height requirements? I've also learned that the water park is very close to the pier... but all of the options I see to purchase tickets on-line are actually more expensive than the excursion options. It seems the on-line booking is for *all* of the options, vs just the waterpark, or just ziplining (there is 0% chance Grandma is going down a zipline!). Does anyone know if there are different ticket options to buy direct actually *at* the park (I am posting in the Costa Maya boards as well)? I'm surprised I can't find more information about this. Thanks!
  6. Royal Caribbean is stating there is a 48" height requirement for their excursion to the Maya Lost Mayan Kingdom waterpark, but reviews I am reading on-line have much different height requirements (varying from 38-44"). Does anyone know for sure? This place looks perfect for my 3 energetic boys, but my youngest is currently 44" tall... I don't think he'll grow 4 inches by February! Thank you!
  7. We will be cruising in Feb 2020 with 3 young, VERY energetic boys... ages 5, 6, and 8. (Did I mention they are VERY energetic?) Our first port stop is in Grand Cayman, where we will likely spend the day at the beach; our second stop is Costa Maya, our third stop is Cozumel (where we will likely spend the day at Playa Mia). Rather than having 3 beach days in a row, I think my boys would *love* to have the opportunity to actually CLIMB some ruins. I was checking out Chacchoben, but it looks like we can only climb a few steps. Are there other ruins we can reach during a port stop that they could actually climb? Thank you! (Again... Did I mention they are VERY energetic?)
  8. I was told by the RCCL 'cruise planner' that if we book adjoining balcony rooms on Adventure of the Seas, we can ask our stateroom attendant to remove the divider between the balconies to make one larger balcony, but I have been reading some things on-line suggesting that Royal Caribbean no longer allows that... what do I believe??? Will they remove the divider or no? Thank you!
  9. Hoping y'all can help us make a decision on which rooms to book... we are looking at booking a 6 night Western Caribbean cruise on Adventure of the Seas in March 2020. We need 2 adjoining rooms for a total of 6 people, and options are limited. The choices are complicated by the fact that I am *very* prone to motion sickness. We have interior options available mid-ship on deck 6 (mid and low are best for motion sickness in general), but would love balcony rooms, which are only available in the far back on Deck 10 (1670/1672 or 1370/1372). Do you think we would feel much of a difference in motion in far back Deck 10 vs mid ship Deck 6? We sailed the Mediterranean twice on the Brilliance of the Seas (a smaller boat, but calmer waters), and did a Caribbean cruise on Allure of the Seas (obviously a much larger ship), and I was totally fine on all 3 cruises except for a night or two on Brilliance when there were exceptionally rough seas (they had to close areas of the ship). The balcony rooms look AMAZING, but not worth me feeling horrible... Our exact itinerary would be: Fort Lauderdale Cruising George Town, Grand Cayman, Puerto Costa Maya, Mexico Cozumel, Mexico Cruising Fort Lauderdale Thank you!!!
