  1. We did find the majority of the desserts on our Explorer cruise to be disappointing. We liked the chocolate chip cookies from all venues, and the chocolate and caramel cake at Giovanni's was spectacular. Otherwise, not fantastic.
  2. So then they definitely didn't have that on Explorer, I read those cruise compasses very carefully! I wonder if it depends on the size of the ship, although I would think Mariner and Explorer are comparable? Anyway, doesn't sound like we missed much anyway. 🙂
  3. Was the 10:30-12 option listed in the cruise compass? It didn't say that in ours so I never went up there to check after 9 because I assumed it was closed.
  4. How late was the WIndjammer open with "late night" snacks? On our recent cruise on Explorer it closed every night at 9 pm, which is pretty early in my opinion. After that the only option was Cafe Promenade/Ben and Jerry's.
  5. If you do end up taking the ferry, try to sit on the upper level outside. It's not a very big section, so go up there immediately and try to get a seat. You still might get seasick, but it seems like people did much better out there.
  6. Also, does anyone know if you can use the UDP for the tapas in Vintages?
  7. If you use the Unlimited Dining Package at the a la carte restaurants, is it $35 credit per visit? Or per day? For instance, what if I have lunch in Playmakers, and then go back later that day just for dessert? How would that work?

  9. I wonder if they are now requiring reservations for MTD on Oasis? This was the pic that was posted from the Cruise Compass, and it says reservations required:
  10. We just did this last week and loved it. We didn't have any small spaces to crawl through. The hardest part was the uneven footing when the water was shallow - it was pretty hard to keep your balance without touching the walls, which they don't want you to do. I definitely recommend taking the walking sticks they offer. A lot of people had a really hard time on the ferry with motion sickness. We did fine but be prepared for that. If you can sit on the outside deck on the upper level it is much better.
  11. Right? It was only $30/person for the day, I'll take that!
  12. Do you know where that bus stops? Do you think we could get it from near the Betsy Hotel?
  13. We are doing a day pass at the Betsy Hotel, which we booked through resortpass dot com. They will keep our luggage and we have access to the pool and hotel facilities. There are lots of hotels to choose from on the site, so there may be some that are better for a 14-year-old (we are just two adults). It's this Sunday so I can let you know how it goes!
  14. The good news is that I looked at the port times and our ship would be the first due to dock. If we get there first and get off quickly hopefully we can beat the rush. We are also there much later than everyone else (11pm) so the evening should be lovely. I have to imagine the port wouldn't schedule more than they could handle. Also, in October maybe these ships won't be sailing at full capacity? I can hope, anyway. 🙂
  15. I like to check the cruise port calendar when I am planning cruises, just to see how many ships will be in port at the same time. On the Greek Islands cruise I am considering with Seabourn, there will be 8 ships in port the day we are in Corfu! Most are smaller ships but there is a Costa ship and an NCL ship in there too, with over 6000 guests between them. And this is in October, which I picked because it was off season and would be less crowded. Is there any way this isn't just a complete nightmare? Is there even room at the dock for that many ships? It's not listed as a tender port on the itinerary. I don't see any other dates with that many ships listed, the most is usually 5 and most only have 2 or 3.
