  1. Well now I am excited, your day sounds exactly what I want to do and knowing that you never felt crowded is great to hear! Just checked Cruise Mapper and my ship is the only one scheduled to be in CoCo Cay on that day as well. Thanks footballmp!
  2. After a year of waiting, our cruise is finally coming this next weekend. Our first stop is Coco Cay. For people who have been on the island since the waterpark opened, how crowded are the free areas now(beaches and Oasis Lagoon)? At $80/pp we have absolutely no plans to even go near the waterpark area, so was hoping it has been siphoning people away from the other areas of the island so that they don't feel as crowded. Thoughts?
  3. Dramamine is the pinnacle of motion sickness relief. However because of how tired it makes you, their less-effective but also less-drowsy formula is the best solution I have found.
  4. Where did I say my doctor said it was beneficial? Just that it wasn't toxic. Of course it isn't 'good' for you, but it isn't bad for you either. The 3 main ingredients are nicotine, polypropylene glycol and vegetable glycerin. PG is FDA approved and used in food preservatives and VG is FDA approved and used in inhalers and fog machines, they are not harmful and actually do provide HELP for people with lung/breathing issues. On top of that, nicotine is only as harmful as caffeine, its not cancerous. The More You Know...
  5. Bummer. Coco Cay is fine, but I'd literally rather go to ANY other port in the Caribbean over Nassau.
  6. I just hate that vaping and smoking cigarettes are all treated the same...everywhere. Started using e-cigs to get away from cigarettes, yet I am constantly forced to join them to get nicotine. Guarantee you my Banana Custard e-juice smells better than most of the gaudy perfume I smell all the time all over vacation areas and there is no concerns of '2nd hand' issues as nothing in them is toxic. My doctor has attested to that multiple times. I do keep my vaping respectful and dont do it around anybody or blow vape clouds towards anyone.
  7. Who in their right mine would buy a cruise booking on ebay?! Even if that was an option or feasible, I would never in a million years think that would be a sound decision.
  8. Seems very counter intuitive to have slides on the ship that a kid under 42" cannot use, but then have similar slides on Coco Cay where seemingly any height 'up to' 42" can slide. I have tall kids for their age, so my almost 4 year old may actually still make the cut, but it is mind boggling that something like this is such a big deal. I remember cruising when there weren't even any lifeguards on the entire ship, now they are going overkill by denying kids the experience of their little dinky waterslides. Pretty wonky.
  9. Kinda disappointed with Royal as far as Coco Cay waterpark pricing, at least on my sailing. The cheapest it ever got to was $68/pp and for the last month has been at a whopping $79/pp! And the cabanas are prices at $700! Absolutely ridiculous prices, my idea of a 'perfect day' doesnt Include handing over my entire wallet to Royal.
  10. Never understood the 'steak purist' people. A nicely cooked steak tastes fantastic, but I think they taste even better with a little A1 on the side. I wouldn't scoff at throwing ketchup on a fancy burger. I have put A1 on everything from Sirloins to Tenderloins to New York Strips that were cooked perfectly, even a great steak can use a little sauce.
  11. I've only ever been on two cruises; both a year apart, both 7-night, both on Freedom, both to the exact same ports. We had just as much fun on the 2nd cruise as the first....and we still didn't do everything the ship had to offer! You will be fine.
  12. I know most things like shore excursions and beverage packages will be more expensive onboard, but how about specialty restaurants? Me and the wife are planning to eat at 150 Central Park on the 6th night of our 7 night cruise (our one 'date night' where we are sending the kids to Adventure Ocean), but aren't quite sure what our time schedule will be yet that evening and didn't want to prebook. That said, will I be expecting higher prices onboard...or do they actually do discounts later on in the cruise for the specialty dining? Harmony of the Seas is the ship is that makes any difference for the answers.
  13. My June Harmony sailing shows $75/pp for the waterpark, and has the nerve to show a banner saying 'pre-cruise deal!' Jesus, if that is a deal, I don't want to know what people are paying if they book it on the ship.
  14. I haven't sailed since 2012 and the pizza was pretty good then. Excited knowing the formula was changed and it tastes even better, that is going to be our late night snack hangout before bed!
  15. This is my experience exactly. Going on Harmony next month, but booked it a year ago and the entire time it has bounced between $52 and $56. Finally got tired of waiting and booked it the last time it hit $52. Which might have been a good thing, because that was over a month ago.
