  1. Leaving from Florida, there are two hours difference in Roatan so if your ship is supposed to arrive at 10am, it will only be 8am local time! Keep a watch with you as cell phones do tend to update to local time. We are going to Roatan in June and can't wait!.
  2. We are sailing in June on the Miracle and this will be my Diamond cruise. I got Boarding Zone A01 too and we have a check in time of 11:30 to 12:00 so I think it does vary by ship some.
  3. Found another one, Mary Kate & Ashley The case of the mystery cruise. You can play it on Youtube and our own Brand Ambassador John Heald was the Cruise Director on it. It was filmed on the Sensation.
  4. The movie "Something about Mary" was filmed in Miami and there are Carnival ships in that one as well!
  5. We paid $209.00 for a week pass for two of us. If I am not mistaken, it was around $25.00pp per day if you didn't take the whole week if it's even available. We enjoyed it, but wouldn't spend that much again for it.
  6. We just returned from our cruise on the Fascination last week and did Thenford Grey's Grand Tour. We basically had a private tour with Pastor WIlliam (great guy) and saw so much of St. Kitts including Romney Manor, Brimford Fortress, the Black Rocks, the beach (we chose not to stay as we are not beachy people)! We learned so much about St. Kitts and had some great Rum Cake and drinks at Romney Manor too! We would book this tour again without any doubt! I was able to prepay for it through paypal so I didn't have to pay when we arrived. We did of course tip him well for a great tour. They offer several options so make sure to contact them!!
  7. Thank you very much! We cruise in 9 days and this really give us an idea of what to expect!
  8. If you are getting off your ship in Old San Juan - if you go to the left along the waterfront. You will come to a park and vendors are set up all around there. You can also go to Plaza De Colon in the center of the city and they were set up around it as well. If the ships are there, so are the vendors/craftman. The ones that set up right in front of the ship tend to be high and sell JUNK. Go more into town and you can watch a lot of the art being made on site. We will be there in 2 weeks and look forward to more shopping!
  9. Thank you for the information! We board in 2 1/2 weeks. Nice to know that we could drop our luggage off early as we are also staying at the Sheraton prior to the cruise. If you happen to have the Fun Times, would you mind posting copies of them so we will have an idea of what to expect daily. Thank you!
  10. Thank you for the information. We board in 3 weeks. Did they get the ramp fixed at the port so you enter in the Atrium Lobby or do you still have to enter on Deck 0 and take the elevators up? We are looking forward to visiting the islands and seeing some new places this cruise!
  11. We plan on walking in October when we cruise from there. It's a little over a long block. If you google pictures of the view from the Sheraton, it's the pier with the building on it to the left of the Sheraton. Probably a 5 minute walk.
  12. We were in Old San Juan in February and there were crafters/vendors selling their handmade goods including jewelry, leather goods, pottery, art, etc. We bought all of our gifts for family members from the locals. These people are so nice and appreciate your business to help support their families. They were set up all over so make sure to explore Old San Juan because you may miss some great things.
  13. Check on Hotwire. I got it for $126.00 per night. I listed the amenities on the link above to help others. It came out to around $170.00 with the fees (resort/taxes) added. May want to check and see if something special is going on that requires a two night stay. We are sailing in October.
  14. Thank you for an absolutely wonderful review with great pictures! We sail in October and this gave us a lot of ideas of things to do and what to expect on each island. I agree, the food on Carnival has declined and I would like to see some menu's changed. Thank you for taking time out of your busy schedule to post this!
