    Jeans on "elegant" nights

    I do too. Cut off jean shorts though, I find its alot cooler and more comfortable and they go better with my AC/DC tank top.
  2. Looking for recommendations. We always stay in Miami at the Intercontinental, but are cruising out of Ft. Lauderdale with family who all wants to stay near the port. Suggestions?

    Carnival Vista Itinerary Change

    I just had them switch DR ports for a cruise next year.....Amber Cove to La Romana. Doesnt matter to us. But you are right, no email/heads up of anykind....
  5. You've got it all on this thread....inferring criminality/moral highroad/questioning parenting. GOLD. Thanks for the laughs!:D

    Return Flight out of FLL?

    It is super close, but that is a very early flight. I would shoot for noon myself.

    A Good Reason to Choose the Late Seating

    So yes, you will have to be at dinner at that time. Depending on the size of your party they will either have you at a table by yourself, or with a larger table with other folks. If you request to be sat by yourselves, they will do their best to accommodate. We have not done set time dining in quite a while, but I feel two hours is an overstatement. In general I would say hour and fifteen, of course that will vary by ship and evening. Enjoy your cruise, you will have a blast!

    Dream: Suchi for dinner?

    I want to say 2012 is the last time time I can really remember....

    Hey listen, do whatever seating you choose. But dont infer that if you do YTD you will 'hope they have a table for you' We have done 8 YTD cruises and never had to wait more than 5min. If you prefer set dining thats great, but lets keep it accurate for new folks as far as the options go.

    do you know what dining option you requested? its typically set seating with late/early options, or your time dining.

    Dream: Suchi for dinner?

    Yep, that was it. Not great, but ok and free :) Not even sure when they disappeared? I kind of forgot about it and then realized I hadn't seen the sushi bar for a while...must be what 4-5 years ago?

    Dream: Suchi for dinner?

    I was thinking of the carry out when I wrote that......seems like it will be similar to the old Sushi counter they had back in the day, except for a fee and I assume better quality and selection.

    Losing My FunShip virginity on the Horizon - Live 8/22

    Catalina/Saona are fun trips. Been to both, Catalina I think is a bit nicer and also closer.

    Dream: Suchi for dinner?

    They are rolling out a new, higher end Sushi bar on select ships. But, as you may have guessed, there will be a fee :-) Bonsai I believe is the name. I believe this will only be on ships that dont have the Teppenaki place, where you can get sushi also.

    For sure. At least back in the day they would try to group you with 'similar' people, mainly age wise. But still. Often felt very forced as far as conversation, etc. We have never had issue with YTD waits...maybe 5min wait a couple of times? Thats alright for us though. We like to eat fairly quickly anyway, and hour or 45min is fine with us, and we found it takes much less time YTD than traditional.
