  1. Absolutely! If EZ Air is allowing you to make a reservation for 9:25 am then yes, you should not have any problem getting to the airport on time!
  2. When we did this sailing on the Regal in 2016 Princess allowed a 9:30 AM flight departure through EZ Air. We opted for the Princess transfer to the airport because I'd read that taxis may ocassionally be problematic at the port. The early transfers were leaving by 6:00 AM. You'll should be fine with a 9:30 AM flight. Check and see what EZ Air allows!
  3. We are arriving in San Juan at 8:30 in the morning and are looking to do a short tour of Old San Juan prior to boarding the ship (Pan American Pier Vision of the Seas). Has anyone done this before? Do you have a tour company that you recommend? our other thought is dropping our bags off at the shop then taking a different taxi to Old San Juan. Just not sure how early they will take our bags. any help is greatly appreciated!
  4. We will be in Punta Cana in February on Vision of the Seas. Looking for recommendations for a beach day or all inclusive resort. Thanks in advance for your help!
  5. Will be in Tortola in February for the third time. Went to CGB the last two times and it's just too crowded. This time we'd like to try Brewers Beach. Can someone please advise the following: Cost of taxi from port to Brewers Availability and cost of loungers/umbrellas Availabiity of food and drink for purchase Thank you SO much! Cheers and have a great day!
  6. I priced matched two excursions on a cruise to Hawaii a couple of years ago. It was super simple. As it worked out, the one excursion was a total bust and we complained to the Shore Excursion desk upon our return (as did many others). Not only had we received the original refund (as OBC) we then received any additional 50% back (of the original cost). I wouldn't hesistate to price match again!
  7. Everytime I've sailed out of San Pedro I've always stayed at the Crown Plaza. It's clean, well kept and quiet. And super close to the port. I believe the shuttle is $5 per person (last time we opted to take an Uber). There is a Mexican restaurant right across the street where we had dinner and a dinner behind the hotel were we ate breakfast. Both good food and very good prices. I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again!
  8. We used an Uber from the port to LAX last year and it was super easy. A very short wait, not a problem getting a ride!
  9. Loving your review! We sail next week and can't wait to try MSC for the first time. Can you please tell us what cabin number you had? Thank you SO much!
  10. TRACIE!!!! So excited to see your "Live from" thread....oh how I love them! Glad you enjoyed your day at Tropicante. I just love Steve, and Oscar is the BEST! Hope you had the chicken and sour cream enchilada. They are to die for! Keep having fun! Natalie
  11. Just booked my first MSC cruise on Divina. Can anyone tell me about the Internet packages? Do they offer an “unlimited” plan onboard or is it best to pre-book before we sail? Thanks in advance for your help!
  12. My sweeet mamma and I will be sailing MSC for the first time in February on the Divina. We are Platinum on NCL and Elite on Princess and are excited to try a new line. We were thrilled to learn about the Status Match program and will both have a black card. What tips cann you share with us about sailing MSC and specifically the Divina. Some of our questions: What is the evening dress code? Are jeans allowed? When do we find out what dinning time we've been assigned? Will we know before we go or once we get on the ship? Which speciality restaurants do you recommend and why? Where the best place to relax outside away from the crowds? How is the Thermal Suite? Is it possible to find a list of the wines included with the 7 bottle wine package (we'd like to pre-purchase)? Is it customary to tip above and beyond the daily gratuity charges? Any and all info is welcomed. Excited to try a new line!
