  1. Taking this cruise over Halloween.
  2. Thanks everyone. I decided on Victory 4 day over Halloween I appreciate the insight. Will probably book Paradise in 2020 to go to Cuba.
  3. We just got off the Liberty two weeks ago, it was a very nice ship. We found the "Fun Squad" to be lacking, but the rest of the cruise was fantastic. I am leaning towards Victory only because it won't exist soon and that is a consideration. We live in NYC so flights to TPA or MIA won't be a drastic difference either way.
  4. So I am not sure if I want to book late April on the Paradise out of Tampa or the Victory out of Miami..... what would you all do and why?
  5. there were some structures of substantial construction, but most were just frame with plywood - not anything that would stand up to flames.
  6. wow, i was just there a week ago today! was my favorite private island i have been to so far 😞
  7. I just booked a cruise for 2019 on the Liberty. I haven't been on her yet, does anyone have the Fun Times for a 4 day cruise? Also my cruise will be going to Princess Cay, which I am happy and excited about - I have been to Half Moon a few times - have any of you been there as well?
  8. Best CD's we ever had: Donkey Salazar Malcolm Burns Average CD Trevor Block Cory Rodgers No Thanks, never again please CD Josh Weitzman Jace Apps Eli Sharplin
  9. I believe that Eataly Steakhouse was 34 usd Ristorante Italia was 31 usd
  10. Hi All - I know that these ships are the same class. I have sailed on the Connie, wondering what do you all think are the pluses or minuses of the Infinity compared to Connie. I will be on Infinity in November. Thanks! Pauly
  11. Me and my husband just booked the 4 night Divina in January. Have they done this run before? Has anyone been on it? If so what shows will be done, etc.... I would love to know. Thanks! Pauly
  12. Hi All - Just checking in and saying hello. We have two cruises booked for 2016 so far - October out of NYC on the Sunshine to Bermuda and November out of Ft Lauderdale on the Infinity to Bahamas Looking for a 4-5 day in January - probably out of Miami or Pt Canaveral to celebrate our 4th wedding anniversary!
  13. We have sailed twice on her. The pink in no way was jarring or disrupted my cruising pleasure. Is it over the top, yes...but so are most Carnival ships in some regard. Going to miss her when she goes to China in 2017!
  14. Is there lunch ever served in the Tuscan Grille or Oceanliners? I am leaving this coming Monday the 30th and would like to experience them possibly. Thanks
  15. Well very exciting that we will be getting a 2.0 ship here in NYC for 4 months a year in 2016 (note sarcasm) - I wish it would be here longer, but we will take what we can get.
