  1. We've used this place a few times. Very good service, and they are quick to respond on prices. https://cozumeldrugstore.com/
  2. I'm guessing it's only for Carnival passengers, for the reason you noted. While we took the shuttle the last time we were there, my brother and his family just grabbed a cab outside the port because they only wanted to go to Margaritaville. They didn't feel unsafe. The only problem they had was that the driver said he'd be back to pick them up at a specific time and he didn't return. So they had to get another cab for the way back. If I recall, it was pretty expensive, so negotiate in advance and I'd say don't believe them when they say the amount is for both ways.
  3. We almost didn't go to Krazy Lobster after I saw this but decided to do so anyway because the port area was so crowded. The beach area definitely looks like the second picture, but we were seated in an area with both a table/palapa and loungers right in front. I think it was kind of where the boats are above. Drinks were a bit weak (as they usually are at these kinds of places), but we had a blast. Lobster nachos were tasty, and the shade was perfect. We had only two complaints. First, lobster nachos are actually not on the menu, so we asked how much they'd be. We were told 25, but we were charged 30. The server was apologetic but said his boss wouldn't fix it. Also, the bathrooms are downright disgusting. As Ace Ventura would say, "Do NOT go in there."
  4. Love this drink. Every time I order it, they look at me funny and ask if I like black licorice. They look at me even more oddly when I say that I never really did, but I love the drink anyway. 🙂
  5. Someone on the book of face said they are working now. Can you confirm? We sail in a week, and I'm really hoping they work, as that was something I was really looking forward to.
  6. I'd recommend the Fish Fry area, about 10-15 minutes past Junkanoo. It's not a short walk but doable for those not mobility challenged. There are a ton of restaurants down there. We went to this one, which was featured on Food Network.
  7. We were there about a year ago, and yes, they still have the shuttle. There's a kiosk in the port where you pay. I believe we paid with our sign and sail card, got a wristband and then boarded the bus. You can hop on and off at any of the stops, and it includes Margaritaville and Doctor's Cave. It ends and turns around at this little shopping area across from Rose Hall. You may get offered some pot, but we never felt unsafe at all.
  8. They stop at a certain time (don't know exactly). If you are relatively late getting there, you have to DIY.

    We've been a few times and enjoy it. I think June of 2022 was the last time, so the price may be different now, but it was $25 pp entry with a $12 food/beverage credit. You get wifi and use of snorkel gear for an hour. There's sand where the loungers are, but it's not a sandy beach. There's a rocky staircase entry into the water. Pool and facilities are all nice. We found the food to be pretty solid but the drinks not very strong.
  10. Yes, we went last week and were charged the 1-4 people rate for a couple, alone in a Nissan Versa. It was $8. On the way back (as posters have said, plenty of taxis available), we were quoted $10 but didn't argue. Streets are all torn up for repair in a significant portion down there.

    Golfcart ?

    Not too long - 10-15 minutes maybe. Few stops between the port the Southernmost point. Here's a map: https://www.cityofkeywest-fl.gov/326/Duval-Loop
  12. I think it's due for a dry dock early next year. I'm pretty sure he said it'd be then.
  13. We like it too. Unfortunately, we were told by a bartender last week that it's going away in its current form. They will be removing the brewery and converting it to a Guy's Pig & Anchor Smokehouse/Brewhouse.
  14. We were there about a year ago, and the pass was $25 with a $12 food/beverage credit. You get use of snorkel gear for an hour.
  15. I won $5000 on a game like this on the Dream a couple of years ago. They don't have it anymore. Hit it on the 3rd try. I thought I was pretty cool until I found out later it was programmed to go off at a certain time.
  16. We did this one last year... URL says cave-tubing, but it's not. Short sightseeing, then the ruins, then a lunch at a local restaurant on the way back. https://shoreexcursioneer.com/belize/altun-ha-mayan-ruins-city-sightseeing-cave-tubing.html We weren't the first tender off and had to wait for another couple. Never felt rushed, though, and we were back with plenty of time to spare. I think they have a "back to cruise ship" guarantee.
  17. It's more like pico. I was looking forward to chips and salsa but was disappointed. As noted by some others, pizza was horrible. Nuggets were solid.
  18. Junkanoo is an easy walk from the port and has chairs/umbrellas to rent, as well as facilities and places to purchase food/drinks.
  19. It's been a few years, but we used them and they were excellent. Victor was fast and thorough with email communication prior to the tour, making sure we understood all of the details. Our guide was Francisco, and he was friendly and professional. We felt safe everywhere he took us, all of the beautiful spots on the island, and he gave us tips on how to bargain with vendors and what to get to eat and drink. We also enjoyed the interesting bits of information and history along the way. You get to decide where you want to go and for how long. The freedom worked out very well for us. We had several photo stops and shopping before going to the monkey business. This was definitely the highlight of the trip. A guide takes you through the various cages, and you can go in and interact with monkeys, parrots, a sloth and more. It's really a one of a kind experience.
  20. We tried to do this about a month ago and were denied by multiple entities, including the PVP we've used for several bookings. It was a casino offer, so we even tried with them, but were told that it was use it or lose it on the deposit.
  21. It'll be interesting to see if it amounts to anything for the cruise itself. The questions included stuff about incentives to get us into the casino more such as casino food and increased comps. I'm not at the level to get a lot of comps (bottle of wine once and a steakhouse selection in the MDR), so we'll see if that changes.
  22. Received one as well. Sail date is July 29th.
  23. Some of the softest sand you'll find. No water shoes needed.
  24. Great idea. We went to Blue Heaven for key lime and it was fantastic. Also consider visiting the Hemingway House. It's pretty cool. This is what we've done twice, but there are some beach excursions I've heard good things about. Since we hit the beach at two other stops, didn't feel it necessary to do here. This place is amazingly beautiful. The beach is one long area with loungers galore. There's not a lot of shade, though, so consider clamshell. We actually brought a cheap, collapsible umbrella we bought off of Amazon. Free lunch is provided (burgers, hot dogs and stuff like that). It was very underwhelming to say the least. There are drink waiters and you can pay with your sign and sail, but Cheers doesn't work here. Can't answer about Atlantis or RIU, but Junkanoo beach is within walking distance to the port (about 10-15 minutes) and is free to access. Chairs/umbrellas maybe 20-25 bucks. The beach can get a little packed, but we enjoyed it, then walked to the Fish Fry area for some great food.
