  1. Wow! I'm still laughing. I even reread your entire thread. Were you able to watch a Movie Under The Stars? Hoping you have a smooth debarkation and trip back home.
  2. Awesome review! Did you try any of the specialty restaurants? How about 24 hour pizza or room service? I just found your review and want to know MORE about your cruise. Your photos are so fun. Did your room steward leave towel animals on your freshly made bed? Thanks for making us smile 🙂
  3. Our April Alaska cruise was cancelled. We already had a Panama Canal Cruise (and a couple of others) booked. I received an email, yesterday, and the balance of my Panama Canal cruise was paid off and the $600 credit was applied to the cruise. There was about $200 left over from the Alaska cruise and it was applied to my January cruise. We had planned on booking a replacement Alaska cruise -- but this will work out fine for us.
  4. Good morning! I just saw your response. I'm still hoping someone can post a photo of the cabin. According to Carnival's website: 207 1A 185 square feetBeds: one twin bed-single sofa bed (beds do not convert to king)View: two portholesBathroom: shower-toilet-sinkFeatures: flat-screen TV, telephone, 110 AC current, individual climate control, hair dryer, safe, non-stocked mini bar unit, 3-closets, desk and ottoman seat, sofa and coffee table I just received an upgrade offer for $210 for an oceanview cabin. Right now, I'm going to keep this room -- just out of curiosity. It looks like a very unique room.

    Robbed on Nassau

    I appreciate you posting this. We often walk up to Gray Cliff, John Watlings and the museum. We're going to Nassau in a few weeks and will have to rethink this! Maybe we'll take a taxi to Ardastra Gardens to see the marching flamingos. I'm so sorry to hear that this happened to you.
  6. We just got back from our Grand Celebration Christmas cruise. We got there early and missed Santa Claus in the terminal. I heard he was great, though. The ship was decorated. There was a Christmas tree in the lobby and lots of decorations around the cruise ship. We took a taxi cab to Pirates Cove beach club on Christmas day. Nothing interesting (to us) was planned on the ship during the day. In the evening, Santa visited in the Encore Lounge. We sang Christmas carols, the children received small presents from Santa and there were photo opportunities with Santa. At 9:45 pm there was a Christmas themed show. Photo of my 17 year old chihuahua, from the kennel, just for fun!
  7. Does BPCL do anything special for Christmas? Is the ship decorated? Is there a special Christmas dinner? Any special events?
  8. We'll have to look into this again next week. Maybe my BPCL will know more about the transfers. He told me that they were still working on transfer arrangements! That's a good idea to stay in San Jose a couple of nights. What hotel did you decide to stay at? That would be a good option for us and then I wouldn't worry so much about missing our flight! The Viator excursion looks like a good option for Puntarenas. I'd like to see a crocodile. I got to pet a little alligator, in Ft Myers, last weekend.
  9. We did not! I'm still not getting a good answer about transfers from the ship to the airport. I am corresponding with a BPCL agent and all he can tell me is not to book a flight before 2:30 pm. We're still considering it, though :) I've made reservations, at the kennel, for my Chihuahua for those dates.
  10. Thanks for your reply. Who are you speaking with at BPCL? Every time I call or chat I get different answers. Do you have the shuttle information in writing?
  11. I spoke with Nellie, last week, who told me that transportation to the airport would be included. Here my chat with BPCL this afternoon: 14:26 I'm interested in the 9 day Panama Canal Cruise. Will you be providing transportation from the Port of Puntarenas to SJO ? No we do not offer transportation Solangel Can you check with a manager? When I called last week, I was told that BPCL will be providing the transporation! We do not provide transportation in Costa Rica Solangel I keep getting different answers I just confirmed with a manager Solangel Will it be offered at a cost, then? I was told that the cruise line was working with vendors to get reliable/safe transportation to SJO Once you arrive in Costa Rica you are responsible for your own transportation and return. Solangel
  12. Thanks, Michelle. I called Nellie earlier today and she said she was busy and would call me back.
  13. I'm pretty sure we're going to book this cruise. Do you have Nellie's extension? It sounds like she knows more than the agent I spoke with. I did a mock booking and it looks like there are still plenty of cabins available. I called the kennel and reserved a spot for Peanut, our chihuahua.
  14. I checked my Rewards account today and noticed that I only had one-half of the points listed on the website. I chatted with customer service today and they told me it's because I booked with Groupon. So, that's good to know. Also, I'm looking at the 9 day Panama canal cruise. I asked how many points we would get for this cruise and she told me they are "working on that".
  15. Hi! I spoke with Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line today. The representative told me that the transfer is not included in the cruise price. They don't have transportation arranged, yet, but there will be an additional charge. They're working on transfer companies and should have this information soon. Did you book directly with BPCL?
