    First time using Carnival / Cozumel

    I did the bar hop last year and they loaded the taxi with 6 people who were also going downtown and he tried to charge each of us $8, I resisted and he came down but evidently some try to take advantage of the system.
  2. Can anyone give me earliest time for check in and latest time for Carnival Paradise from Tampa?

    Grace Bay

    Grace Bay is on Provo the large island and not near Grand Turk, beautiful beach but not logical to try and go while stopped on Grand Turk.
  4. I will be sailing out of Bridgetown end of March so will miss you but took my first Star Clipper cruise last year and enjoyed it so much I have two booked for 2019 especially since they now have no single supplement which makes this all possible. I really enjoyed my last one and being on a small sailing ship is a great experience and being able to go to small islands was great, and the food was very good. I especially enjoyed Bequia in the Grenadines and hope you get to experience this spot of paradise, enjoy your trip.

    Stay and Sail Hotels - Jacksonville

    I have stayed at both Quality Inn and Hilton Garden Inn (which is across the street) and both did a great job.

    Mobile stay and cruise

    I stayed at the Microtel in Saraland Alabama and they took us to ship and picked up after, nice hotel with restaurants in walking distance, will use again in the future.

    Carnival Paradise - 4 Day Cuba Review

    I will be on Paradise to visit Cuba in January and does Carnival provide the affidavit for Cuba in your stateroom or do you have to print it off their website, thanks

    Luggage fits in Interior Room Carnival.

    I usually get a 1A interior and there is room in the hall between the closet and bathroom door for my suitcase no problem.
  9. This was our cruise out of Barbados and none of the beers you mentioned were available, Carib was on the bar menu but they said they did not have any on board. Glad you had a good selection.
  10. I for one was disappointed that they did not have any caribbean beer on board for our Grenadines cruise in December, coors light just does not seem right in the Caribbean.

    there are massage places set up on the beach and across the street are bars/restaurants, not familiar with the place you mentioned.

    where does the tender drop you?

    I was on the Star Flyer and they dropped us off right in town at the marina with all the boats there, from there it was like a 30 minute walk to shell beach and you walk thru town and narrow streets.

    Cuba Travel Form

    Will be on the Paradise to Cuba in January and does Carnival provide the travel affidavit that you fill out for Cuba or do we have to print it out ourselves? Was hoping it was in the cabin when I get on board, thanks

    Solo Cruiser's Roll Call

    Cruising solo on Star Flyer out of St Maarten February 2019 and Royal Clipper out of Barbados end of March 2019, big difference from main cruise lines but I finally get to experience small out of the way islands and whole different experience.

    Cuba on Carnival

    Those who have been to Cuba on Carnival my question is does Carnival provide the travel affidavit somewhere before we board or must we print the whole thing ourselves? Thanks.
