  1. I like 'Chill Beach'. Just follow the paths. Most of the island is actually free. The only pay area is the Waterpark and the Air Balloon. From the pier, the Waterpark is somewhat in front of you to the right a bit. Other than that, you can wander the entire island enjoying the beach, the pool all amenities for no charge. There is also a free tram that will take you around the island. My personal experience, I walked to the large pool (Oasis Lagoon) enjoyed that for a while. Then wandered over to the beach (Chill Beach). Snorkeled, grabbed a snack, hung out on the lounge chair for a while. A perfect day.
  2. Lots of free stuff on Coco Cay. Enjoy the beach, lounge chairs, hammocks, the pool (with swim up bar 😉) and lots of sun, sand and surf. No need to pay for a beach day. Bring snorkel gear or rent from the island. Enjoy!
  3. I am thinking of booking a surfing lesson with Pine Grove surf club. I see very favorable reviews online but no mention within these boards. I am planning an uber from the port and then will have a drop off point at the condos that PGSC is in front of on the beach. Has anyone had a lesson with this company? I am looking for confirmation on the practicality of using an Uber to and from that location as well as any feedback on PGSC. thanks!
  4. great - thank you for the replies. I will look at Cortrans as an option. thanks so much
  5. Hi. I will be on HOTS in 2 weeks. Can I purchase airport transfer for desembark day back to the airport while on board? I thought it would be an available purchase item in the planner but cannot find it. I am talking about RCCL bus transport to Orlando airport on disembark day. thanks. sandra
  6. Great! thank you so much for the response and info.
  7. Hi. I am looking for Sunday mass during my stop in Nassau. I see St. Francis church is near the port. I am unfamiliar with the area. Is this church walkable from port? Is it a safe walk? The church is at the intersection of West and West Hill St. thank you.
  8. Hi. I have purchased the Unlimited Dining plan on an upcoming Navigator sailing. How or when will I know which restaurant has been reserved for me for the first night? I am assuming I would ask for the info on board on the first day when I schedule my remaining dinners but I was wondering if there would be any indication of it prior to that. Right now my calendar just says "Unlimited Dining Reserved" in the time slot on the first day. thanks. sandra
  9. Hi. I am also on that sailing. I booked in April and the itinerary is exactly the same as when I booked. What are you seeing that is changed? thanks.
  10. Little Britain - thank you for the pic - that is very helpful.
  11. Hi. I am booked on Navigator OTS in Cabin 1886. This looks to be a connecting cabin. My questions - where is the connecting door in the cabin? I am guessing that the bed in this cabin is near the balcony - is that correct? and that the connecting door would be closer to the bathroom. Is the connecting door in place of a sofa ? or on the opposite side? I am trying to understand how the cabin "connects" to the other cabin and also determine where the bed is in relation to the balcony. thanks for any input.

  13. Hi. In my experience the better offer comes from whichever program you have higher rating. For me personally, that is always MGM MLife as my tier level is Platinum (and earned through gambling and spend dollars, not a partner match). Also, I do not typically do much gambling on the ships so my personal rating with Club Royale is pretty low . The nice thing with MLife comp is that it is pretty structured and defined as to what you are going to get. As a Platinum MLife member, I get a choice each year of either a free cruise or a dollar amount off the current best price of any cruise. Depending on your level of play as Platinum, your free cruise is either 3 days or 4 days and your dollar amount is either $350 or $750. In addition, there are defined on board comps that do not change including $200 onboard credit. (Gold level is different but also defined). Here is a recent posting I did for my free Mariner cruise March 1 which includes some additional details around the MLife offer. https://boards.cruisecritic.com/topic/2642069-tr-mlife-free-cruise-the-key-mariner/?tab=comments#comment-56955778 Here are the MLife Cruise details https://www.mgmresorts.com/en/mlife-rewards-program/preferred-partners/royal-caribbean-and-celebrity-cruises.html enjoy.
  14. Hi. Yes. I have taken the Free MLife cruise a few times. Your Platinum offer will either be for a FREE 3 night or 4 night cruise depending on your level. You can opt for a longer cruise. In my experience your dollar amount value is anywhere between $375 and $750 (again based on your Platinum level). The free cruise itself is a better Comp value although I have used both options (taken the free cruise and had $750 taken off the bottom line of a 7 night cruise). Here is a link to my Mar 1 Free cruise on the Mariner with some details around the MGM MLife process. https://boards.cruisecritic.com/topic/2642069-tr-mlife-free-cruise-the-key-mariner/?tab=comments#comment-56955778 enjoy
