  1. We usually use Park 'N Go in Fort Lauderdale; cheaper, secured lot, and great service!
  2. That's mainly why we turn on the on-board TV too; however, sometimes we'll watch the rerun of the Love & Marriage and Quest shows since we normally don't stay up for the late-night antics. Just watched the first episode of season 8 of Game of Thrones (shared DVD's for all other seasons), which was free a couple of weekends ago. Yeah, I know, it was a "hook" to get me to pay to watch the rest of them! Anyone want to guess about the ending? I think John's youngest (not the older one) sister will be Queen of the North, and John will share the iron throne with the Mother of Dragons! I think we all agree that the evil "B" needs to pay for her nastiness! At least, that's what I would like to happen! Guess I like happy endings! Oh, and I do so hope the "little man" fairs well in the end too! Hope I didn't say too much for anyone who hasn't seen the first 7 seasons!๐Ÿ˜ฏ
  3. Welcome to Cruise Critic and hope you really enjoy your first cruise experience! Be careful though; cruising can be addictive! Posted below is an attachment to the informal roll calls for the Mariner. Click on the link below, find your specific cruise week, and chat with your fellow cruisers, who'll be on the Mariner the same week as you! I saw 2 different dates in August, so, hopefully, one of them is your week! Cheers! https://boards.cruisecritic.com/forum/179-mariner-of-the-seas-roll-calls/
  4. OK, you and grapau27 need to cruise with us sometime and invite Tom and I to your suite with a private hot tub on the balcony๐Ÿ˜‰! We promise to shower before entering the hot tub and not to P in it!!๐Ÿ˜ฒ We're not DS just yet (and probably never will be) but we can suck up as well as anybody!!๐Ÿ˜˜ Oh, and all drinks on us!!๐Ÿน
  5. I would compare Grease to the unedited version of Dirty Dancing with Patrick Swayzee. Hubba hubba!! If it's still playing this October, we will see it again!!
  6. Just accessed mine and all was fine!
  7. Maybe RCI should offer some specific cabins for those with "special/social needs"?๐Ÿ˜ For more $$ of course!๐Ÿ˜˜
  8. We were on Oasis last year with our adult kids and their significant others. When they came to get DH and I in the DL for dinner, the concierge allowed all 6 of them inside to get us and even got each of them a drink! They all had the DX drink package but we were still uncomfortable with them being in there, so DH and we quickly left with them each night. We tipped the concierge generously that week for being so accommodating. Our DD had gotten recently engaged (now married), so we were all in celebration mode! Hope we didn't ruffle too many feathers!!
  9. Your spouse should be able to decide whether or not to bring his firearm. We are both retired from law enforcement and my spouse always takes his (except when flying), secures it in our car, and tries to park in a secure location. In Miami, I would recommend parking directly at the port. I also believe that hotels in the Ft Lauderdale area are a little cheaper and maybe nicer than Miami, and is only a short drive to the Port of Miami. For us, one night before the cruise is enough. I usually over-pack too and it will be in the 80's most days. Your teens may possibly be in swim wear most of the time. I like to pack wrinkle-free clothes as well. Try not to over-think it and just enjoy a great cruise!! Cheers!! Also, if you'd like to connect with your fellow cruisers going on the Symphony in May the same week as you, click on the link below, find your specific week, and get to know them! They can help you with any other questions too! Enjoy! https://boards.cruisecritic.com/forum/814-symphony-of-the-seas-roll-calls/
  10. That's what I thought too but, at least on this cruise, we did have the foam type egg crate on the bed. I have had the comforter type on beds too at different times. Maybe they are using the "new" ones and slowly discontinuing them but I don't know. In any event, I pack my travel topper "just in case"!
  11. That just gave a whole new meaning to wiki leaks!๐Ÿ™„ Sorry, my bad!๐Ÿ˜Œ
  12. Whew! Was hoping you were joking! LOL! Yep, that's our cabin next February!! Yay!! Thanks!!
  13. We have a corner AFT balcony on Deck 7 next February, so I hope your comment was just a deterrent! If not, please explain.
  14. Here is your roll call for your cruise if you'd like to connect with a few of your fellow cruisers!! Cheers!!
  15. Yes, I believe so too. Did a mock booking for an 11-night in 2021 and RCI wants $900 deposit for just a window view room! Nope! Will wait until we're on board; of course, running the risk of higher prices! Catch 22!
