  1. I think we will be on the same cruise with you. As I am typing this from Miami (we just got off a cruise from Miami) and have done several out of Ft Lauderdale, I prefer the Ft Lauderdale area. Miami is nice for a change but I prefer FLL. We took Lyft everywhere in Miami and the traffic is horrific and the airport is a zoo. Since you are leaving from Ft Lauderdale, I would stay there. In Ft Lauderdale there is a water taxi that you can spend a whole relaxing day on and look at all the pricey homes, you can go down to the new Margaritaville Hotel and that area is fun to walk around, you can stop at bars etc. A lot to see and do and it is a hop on hop off type of boat. So fun!! https://watertaxi.com/store/?utm_medium=cpc&gclid=CjwKCAjwqfDlBRBDEiwAigXUaLTrQ9jaRmg499kIcvF5RP8ObyUkuePKu-vIbE4NU7Y9fxJXjbB_2BoCgJQQAvD_BwE We usually stay at the Westin https://www.marriott.com/hotels/travel/flllw-the-westin-fort-lauderdale-beach-resort/ which is right across the street from the beach and there is a lovely wide sidewalk that you can walk along the beach and view the ocean without the sand, for a long way. You can also walk along the beach too. You could easy spend 2 days there. I highly recommend it. This is what we will be doing for sure.
  2. From what I saw when I went to buy the package, they do add a service charge at the end (it comes to $46.02), but you can actually choose what day they deliver it to the cabin. It can be first day or later. Hope that helps. Also, the water on the ship is ocean water desalinated but some salt still remains. While it tastes great, I have a tendency to swell in my ankles, but I am also of "senior" age. It doesn't mean it will happen to you.
  3. Yes I am. Really?? I did not know that. Thank you.. I was feeling stupid about asking this question, but see, you never know what information you gain. So say, if we go to the diamond lounge and then before 8p we stop at a bar and ask for 3 waters each? That would work?
  4. Ah, ok... Thank you. That gives me something to go on.:D
  5. Yes, thanks Bob, that's what I was looking at.. Then I saw the $7 plus service charge on top of it.. So because I wasn't sure how many I would actually drink I wondered if it was better to buy them individually (if available and cost) or buy the package.
  6. It has been my past experience that you can only find the 1 liter bottles of water once in awhile. I don't know whether to buy the water package or not as I drink a lot of water and can drink those little bottles in nothing flat. Yes, the ship's water tastes great but I swell up too much so I try and limit the amount I drink of it. Are the 1 liter bottles of water readily available and if so how much are they on board..
  7. Thank you so much! I could not find anywhere on their site about a shuttle. That’s great!! And thank you for the foodie tips!!!
  8. Do they have a shuttle to ship? We are staying there next Wed and Thurs night. Any suggestions for not real expensive restaurants in the area? We like fresh seafood, cuban would be good and breakfast options. Thank you
  9. I did not realize you could bring water and soda onboard. I thought that was a no-no?
  10. I bring drinks into dinner all the time. The key I guess for wine would be to save a glass from one of the venues and refill it. The glasses are different in the cabins. (Or at least they used to be) How would they know then if the wine came from the room or you bought it?
  11. I am totally on the fence because we are Diamond. With access to alcohol from 4:30 - 8p, I just don't know. We usually have a few cocktails before dinner and then grab one to go or bring a glass of wine with us to dinner. Then maybe have an after dinner drink that we pay for. I really can't drink that much and what we found is my dh drank way more just to get his "money's worth". I will have to buy water though. I'm thinking of the water bundle so I can get the liter bottles.
  12. How did you like it? Considering this tour in 2 weeks. Looking for shade and snorkeling at the top of the list. Also wondering if RCI's tour includes chairs?
