  1. We were on Carnival Paradise that landed yesterday after stopping in Key West and Havana. Although we didn't leave the ship while in Key West we did tour Havana and had the most wonderful time. We arranged a tour via Blexie-Havana Tours for 6 hours. Wasn't sure that wasn't going to be too long in a car, but I was so mistaken. We met up with Jorge in his wonderfully air conditioned antique car. We spent the entire time asking Jorge about the country, the government and the people. No questions were off limits. We saw Havana through his eyes and it was worth every minute. Language was not an issue as Jorge spoke perfect English and was patient and proud of Cuba. He was truly an ambassador who made these Americans remember our time there and strongly encourage anyone who is going to Cuba to arrange a tour with Blexie-Havana Tours. You won't be disappointed. Thanks Jorge. You did a great job. Diane, Barbara and Michelle
  2. We have tickets for the Tropicana and was wondering if there is a dress code? Does anyone know?
  3. I am holding $100 poker chips from a Carnival Magic cruise from 4 yrs ago. I am now going on a Carnival Paradise cruse in March. Will Carnival allow me to use these chips on my next cruise?
  4. Park at the terminal Much more secure and much more convenient!
  5. We were on the Jade in Dec 2017. I had phone plugged in, e-cigarettes plugged in and the camera plugged in. NONE were unplugged during our 10 day cruise to Panama. Have another NCL Pearl scheduled for Nov and plan on the same course of action.

    Havana Night Spots?

    Family vacation in Havana in March. Looking to take in a night club. It will just be the women on this one. I got excited about going to the historic Tropicana, but saw the price of $165/per person. I'm less excited now. Has anyone done Havana and can recommend a night club that won't cost an arm and a leg? We are not serious drinkers, just wanted the experience.:confused::confused:
  7. DH and I just returned from Caribbean Princess which was quite pleasant. Here's the argument. Does anyone know the size of the TV screens in the Mini Suite? I say 55" and he disagrees. Do you know?
  8. Heard great things about Blexie. That's our plan for Cuba cruise in March.
  9. We are planning a family vacation on Carnival Paradise to Cuba in March 2019. After explaining the process of changing USD into Cuban dollars, she asked "What about credit cards?" Not sure, but I bet someone does know whether credit cards can be used in Cuba. Then she asked about phones? Not sure on that on either. Any advice would be appreciated.:confused::confused::confused:
  10. She was supposed to go to Haiti, Cozumel and Jamaica and as of now they are going to Nassau, St Thomas and St Maarten and is leaving tomorrow,
  11. On Caribbean Princess leaving on July 14 for W Caribbean. My niece is on NCL Oasis of the Seas on similar in W Caribbean. They just got notice the itinerary has changed due to storms. Anyone besides me concerned about this? I have insurance, but don't know if I'm being hysterical. Can I cancel? Should I?
  12. Can't log in. Tells me there's an "error". Checked and rechecked info. Site down?
  13. You know, as much as I enjoy cruises when it comes to new cruise lines, I'd be lost without you guys for guidance. I may still get lost, but I won't feel that way. Thanks for the team support.
  14. We leave next month on Caribbean Princess and we're in a club class mini suite. First time on Princess - usually NCL and Carnival. This time just me and DH. Is it possible to have breakfast ordered for the balcony without me going up to buffet and bringing it to the room ourselves? If so, how do I do it? Is it everything I imagine it to be or should I just go to breakfast as usual? Really looking forward to this and this was just something that;s been on my mind. Thanks for the advice, as usual.:confused::confused:
  15. I'm guessing it will be shown on that outdoor big screen? Will it also be on in our mini suite - that might be better. Has anyone experienced this?:confused::confused: It is scheduled on our first sea day. It should be perfect
