  1. Thinking of trying MSC for the first time. These drink packages are confusing to me. What brands of rum and gin are included in the Easy (under $12) package? Bacardi Silver? Bombay Sapphire? I saw the Premium menu posted above. That is the Premium Plus menu, correct? Thanks for your help!
  2. Saw this on another site. Can anybody confirm? Del Rio may be losing his mind. “ Important VIBE AND CABANA UPDATE. As if pricing wasn't high already it's gone crazy.

  3. Hi, So is the beach in front of Castaway Cay open to the public, if we order drinks/food? Thanks.
  4. We just got back from NOLA. Stayed a couple extra days. We did the Hop On - Hop Off Bus Tour (Google it). It was excellent! If you just stayed on the bus, the whole route takes about 2 hours. There's a bus at each stop about every half hour if you did want to get off at one of the stops. It's a double-decker bus. The top level is open, half shaded with a canopy. You can get on at any stop and pay for your ticket inside the bus.
  5. If you were staying a few days pre and post cruise out of Tampa, which hotel would you choose, and why? What are some sites not to miss in Tampa, or otherwise fun things to do? Thanks for your help!
  6. We stayed there twice. It's a lovely hotel, convenient to everything, but we have no trouble walking. Walked to the French Quarter (Bourbon St.) easily. Canal Street is just about a half block to the right. Some of the rooms have the historic brick walls. Would definitely recommend it.
  7. I highly recommend the Tabyana Beach excursion for snorkeling. As a scuba diver, I can say it's amazing. Buy your own mask and snorkel, however, to help prevent communicable diseases and also so they fit correctly. Nothing worse than a leaky mask. Ships excusions in Belize are good because they pick you up right from the ship instead of having the VERY long ferry ride into port, as the ship has to anchor way off the island because of the coral reef. Not sure where to snorkel in Costa Maya, we cab to the beach in Mahuhual (sp?) Try Chankanaab Park in Cozumel for snorkeling.
  8. An plastic, insulated travel glass with built-in straw. Pour your drinks in and the ice doesn't melt as fast when you're in the sun.
  9. We bring our luggage scale so we don't go overweight when repacking. (We have to fly to the ports.)
  10. LOL, Cubie! That's what we ended up doing. We actually walked all the way from the pier (no taxis) to the Hilton (no taxis) to the Drury Inn, which is where we finally found a taxi to take us to the airport. We did see the awful traffic coming in to town and remarked to ourselves that if anyone was in that, they weren't making it to the ship. Even coming in the week before, our taxi couldn't get any closer than 4 blocks from our hotel at Magazine and Canal. If we ever cruise during Mardi Gras again, we'll stay on the north side of St. Charles!!
  11. I prefer the sofa next to the sliding doors to see the view without having to be in bed. Do NOT like the bed next to the sliding doors. Looks like only the mini-suites are set up the way I like.
  12. I don't know where you're cruising FROM, but the Caribbean is pretty much 85 degrees or hotter all year round.
  13. I'd love to find a flip-flop one! I'll keep my eyes out. Hi Lita!!
  14. I agree, Deb. If they came up with a Pandora knockoff, even, doesn't have to be each ship. Just NCL or something. They'd fly out the door. I know they wouldn't be cheaper. Bought some in Roatan, no discount. Just thought I could save some sales tax.
