  1. Hi Chris We have booked a balcony with the fantastica experience. Karen
  2. Wonder if anyone can help with this? On the description for my room, it has: "For a charge: Access to the exclusive sun deck". Does anyone know what the charge is per person per day and where is the exclusive sun deck? Is it the Aurea sun deck? We are sailing on Bellissima in March. Thanks Karen
  3. Thank you. Is the airport as bad as I have read in that the lines are long and immigration and customs take for ever? We disembark at 12 noon and have a 3.47 pm flight to Miami.
  4. We're actually on Mariner of the Seas first and in Nassau on the 18th of November and then on Seaside which is in Nassau on the 30th November, so as there's 14,446 passengers on the 18th with six ships in port and 20,407 passengers on the 30th November with five ships in port and Seaside arrives at 12 noon, it'll likely be the 18th we'll try and go as Mariner is in port earlier. Not sure we'd get a pass to Sandals at 12 noon if you can't book them in advance.
  5. Many thanks for the quick response, I'll take a look at the link. Karen
  6. Hi, can any recent cruisers confirm if the ship docked early or was it right at 12 noon? If it did dock early, were you able to get off earlier? I'm trying to arrange a few things for Nassau but timing is key to getting it correct. I realise that anything can happen on our actual cruise but curious to see if the ship was early in arriving in the past. Thanks Karen
  7. We are in this very situation in November. We arrive in to Nassau at 12 noon on MSC Seaside and have a flight out of Nassau at 15.42 pm to Miami. This is the only flight we can get as we are flying back to the UK from Miami at 11.00 pm that night. How far away is the airport from the cruise port and are there taxi's readily available at the port when we disembark?
  8. Can anyone advise how far away Sandals is from the cruise port and the approximate taxi cost? We got married at Sandals in Jamaica in 2001 and haven't been to any other of their resorts so it would be nice to go for the day if we could get the chance. Thanks
  9. Can I ask if you purchased the 3 specialty dining package prior to cruising? We are undecided what to do as I believe that the package menus are limited and not the full menu but looking at the menus you've posted, it looks like the teppanyaki can be upgraded if we had the 3 meal package?
  10. Stumbled across your post, so looking forward to your review as I've read your previous reviews in the past and they are always great and informative. Interested to see what class your sailing. We're sailing on the ship on the 24th November this year in Yacht Club after reaching D+ with Royal Caribbean and Elite + with Celebrity. We're curious to see what YC has to offer on MSC.
  11. Does anyone have up to date information on this? I have rented 2 loungers with what looks like a hood that comes up for some shade but no idea where they are located on Coco Cay. We are there in November 2018 and would be good to know where we are heading to when we get on to the island.
  12. Can I ask if you self disembarked? If not, what time did disembarking start? We are trying to plan other things for the day after getting off the ship. Thanks Karen
  13. Great review, most entertaining! Can I ask if you did self disembark? If not, can you advise what time, if you know, that self disembarkation started from? I trying to plan a day to Sawgrass Mills the day we disembark so want to get off as soon as possible, take my case to the hotel and leave it there and get on a bus to shop, shop, shop :D Thanks Karen
  14. Hi, Sailing on Journey on the 20th November 2018 - 4 night cruise to Key West & Havana where we have an overnight. Have any UK cruisers done this trip that can advise on the Visa situation? Thanks Karen
