  1. When I booked my cruise the ticket contract didn't have a mask mandate...
  2. Nothing more frustrating than trying to drink a Strawberry Daiquiri with a paper straw...and those are my jam on cruises.
  3. I am sure Restaurant owners and workers are thrilled with your advice after being devastated for a year and barely holding on as it is. Carnival can weather the storm, your local BBQ joint is going out of business to thunderous applause
  4. I have only cruised with Royal Caribbean before and they tend to have a different sale/promotion every couple of weeks. Wait a few weeks or so and you will find a better deal with potential extras. Is this similar to how Carnival operates as well, various sales with no rhyme or reason? Or is it a matter of booking as early as possible to ensure a better rate? Looking at a May 2022 cruise out of Charleston on the Sunshine for my 10th wedding anniversary so there is no particular rush to book ASAP (other than rooms filling up faster than i'd like)
  5. 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!
  6. 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?
  7. 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.
  8. 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...
  9. Bummer. Coco Cay is fine, but I'd literally rather go to ANY other port in the Caribbean over Nassau.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
