  1. If the ship offers a wine country tour, that would be my top pick. If you haven't been in the Valle De Guadalupe before it is worth the visit and you might even see some places you'd like to visit for a weekend trip from Yuma.
  2. The Tavistock Group is a long established development company in multiple, diversified fields.
  3. Pier 66 Hotel & Marina "With its iconic spire-topped tower, amenities, marina and exceptional waterfront location, the South Florida waterside resort commands a distinction as the social harbor of Fort Lauderdale. Its marina serves as the oceanic gateway into the yachting capital of the world, creating a seamless connection between land and sea, marina and destination. Providing a world-class tropical haven for locals, guests and visitors to feel welcome and drift away in sanctuary, discovery and connection. Created by Tavistock Hotel Collection, welcome to the n
  4. How long are you in port for? I'd probably do a wine country tour.
  5. The Grand Princess is overnighting in Cabo on its 10-Day Baja Peninsula & Sea of Cortez. That is the one I'd pick because I love the Grand.
  6. Why transfer twice? Get an Uber or cab to a hotel near Pier 66, there are plenty.
  7. Use Google maps for the route, it is easier. I would use a taxi though and make sure you have tickets in advance. USS Arizona tickets
  8. The Hyatt Place is very much a "real" Hyatt hotel. The Pier 66 is no longer a Hyatt and closed over a year ago for badly needed renovations. Not sure how one confuses a Hyatt Place with a Hyatt Regency.
  9. I can't think of any other cruise lines where people refer to themselves as "Princessers" or "Celebrityiers" etc.
  10. Not stuck up of course.... although there is rather pretentious sounding self identification as a "Cunarder".....
  11. The Haven dining venue only serves breakfast and lunch, not dinner. The same is true for the MSC Yacht Club, except I believe the MSCYC serves food later than lunch time. Princess also does something similar for Suite & Club Class, but they use regular restaurants like opening Sabatini's for breakfast for Suite & Club Class guests and then having a Club Class exclusive section of the MDR that has a couple of added selections.
  12. I've been on Cunard many times. My first cruise (vs my first ocean liner experience) was on Cunard in 1989. Believing the policies are absurd and saying so isn't the same thing as saying you won't comply. Most of your points have nothing to do with the topic at hand. One can stay at a Premier Inn and still go eat at the Savoy Grill. PS, the dress code at the Savoy Grill as well as at the three Michelin starred Restaurant Gordon Ramsay is "smart casual". So is Alain Ducasse at the Dorchester; London's other three starred Michelin restaurant. The MSC
  13. Many cruise lines are setting up premium areas, even Carnival with its Havana Suites, but these premium areas are more akin to Concierge Level hotel floors, with private lounges. I don't know any other cruise line that assigns a designated dining room based on stateroom class. I don't mind the formal nights for dining. I do think it is a bit much when it comes to formal dress in a theater or banning shorts ship wide after 6PM.
