  1. Another vote for skipping the Radisson's breakfast. We were completely underwhelmed by the food.
  2. For those of you who have flown Southwest from BWI (or nearby) to FLL in November, what was your fare in either cash or points. I'm certain we have enough points for 2 round-trip flights. It's too early to book for November so I can't check. I have a vague idea but I thought I would ask here. Thanks.
  3. Super helpful. Thank you for sharing your experience.
  4. Thank you for sharing your experience. I bet you are a very busy person (missed the email with the final payment date) who really needs a vacation. We all make mistakes, and hopefully because of your story, this is one others won't make. Now don't forget your family's documentation (allusion to previous thread about the couple who couldn't get on the ship because they left their birth certificates back home) 😉 I'm glad to hear you will still be going and will be in the cabin you originally booked. Back in January of 2016, we canceled a November cruise in order to take advantage of a HUGE price drop on the same itinerary in March of the same year. My only hesitation in rebooking was the possibility of not getting the cabin we wanted so close to the sailing date. As it turned out, the same cabin was one of the few left on the March sailing. :)
  5. We've been to Cozumel several times in the fall (Sept/October). It's always been hot. Twice it rained pretty hard but not for long.
  6. Thank you for sharing so much of your cruise with us through narrations and lots of photos. I look forward to more.
  7. Yes, that's true. I didn't address that last part. Dh and I have very different ideas about how to enjoy at-sea time. For the most part, we meet up for meals but otherwise entertain ourselves differently. I expect I'll spend as much time in the Havana area as he will on our balcony.
  8. I hope you don't mind me giving my answer to your question about why anyone would spend extra on a balcony if they're booking Havana category. What you're saying makes good sense (and cents) if the person cruising is indifferent to what a balcony room has to offer. But, some people - dh and myself being two of them - the balcony is very important to our comfort and to our enjoyment of the cruise. We tried it once. We enjoyed everything else about that cruise, but we agreed that from then on, if we couldn't afford a balcony room, we wouldn't go on a cruise until we could.
  9. Good to know. We're staying in 8469 on the Horizon next November. I wasn't too concerned about the noise from the Lido or Havana decks but I hadn't researched which -for lack of a better term - service areas were nearby. I've read some people's room reports about banging sounds, slamming doors and noisy service trolleys. I'm glad to hear you weren't sitting on your balcony when the ice cream cone was dropped down from above.
  10. I'm glad you asked this question since we already booked a Havana aft-balcony room on deck 8 for our cruise next November. I was pretty sure deck 8 would be okay, but I was still wondering about what kind of noise we should expect.
  11. This is something I would like to hear more about.
  12. Thank you for indulging my curiosity. That does sound like bad chemistry - no conversation unless it's to complain. NO thanks!
  13. Sounds like a great little mini-cruise for those of us within driving distance of the port, which we are. We're about an hour north of you. I'm insanely curious what was so horrible about this group of diners! 😉
