  1. Thanks, I googled the floating bridge- it looks so cool!
  2. Thanks for the heads up. this is our 1st time in Curacao so I am not familiar *yet* with the layout at the port. Are you saying that casper tours is after you cross over the floating bridge? Or is it at the port?
  3. Will we need to arrive there by a certain time to have the best chance of available parking at the port itself? We are driving in from Sarasota which is a 3.5-4hr drive. We sail on the Explorer of the Seas and these other ships are in port that day, 3 of which also leave at about 4-5pm: MSC Divina 7:00 AM - 7:00 PM Norwegian Sky 7:00 AM - 5:00 PM Navigator Of The Seas 6:00 AM - 4:30 PM (Dock) Carnival Victory 8:00 AM - 4:00 PM
  4. Thank you very much for that information. A had Googled Miami cruise port parking and that's where my location that I had posted came from. I've never driven into Miami I did not realize that they had parking right there. Will be driving in from Sarasota so I will need to get the exact cruise port parking.
  5. Thank you. Sounds strange but I'm kind of glad it happened to somebody else so that I won't feel strange if it happens to me. I have a disabled paralyzed nice and I would not want to ever purposely take away and accessible cabin for somebody.

  8. Our cruise ends in Miami and from there we will be picking up our car and driving North towards Cocoa beach to continue our snowbird vacation to Florida. We are looking for a morning Catholic Mass enroute from Miami, without getting off track too much. Suggestions/names of Parishes nearby? Thanks.
  9. ignore added Miami to another post.
  10. Hello, As subject mentions, when I was comparing pricing on RCCL's deck plan availability with a travel website there was only an accessible inside Cabin showing for availability to *select* OR *guaranteed cabin* to select. I (for the 1st time) chose the *guaranteed* inside cabin since it was cheaper. We have always chosen our cabin in the past. Now that I booked that *guaranteed* inside, the inside's are sold out for this cruise. So, it would appear that I *may* be placed in that last inside cabin - which happens to be W/C Accessible. It could be awkward if we ARE assigned that cabin 😨 since we do not have any ADA disabilities. But, it's not our fault if we are. My question is... does this assignment routinely happen? And, do you think there will be comments made by cabin steward or maybe even other passengers? (thinking that we purposely booked an accessible cabin)
  11. Interesting. Goes to show you never know what's going to happen on a cruise!
  12. I never realized that this was a problem in Tampa. So statistically how often does this happen? Anybody willing to throw out a percentage number in speculation?
  13. Check the Royal Caribbean forum. I have shared my research on shade and mobility issues on Labadee with you there.
  14. In 2013 we decided to splurge on a over the water Cabana because I could not being the son and my husband had some mobility issues. In all my research on Cruisecritic, I see that Nellies Over the WaterCabana # 9 seems to have the most consistent shade over the day at Labadee.The ramp for #9 was perfect. maybe check it this email address to see if they can accommodate you and rent a cabana for the family for the day it really was worth it even for the expense because we were able to nap inside there was water and we didn't have to walk far to get things because it came with an attendant. The loungers inside are cushioned and there's outside Loungers and it was very well shaded which is what I needed in particular. Cabana next to it seem shaded as well. If you order one through the cruise line you will be told that your cabin will be assigned when you arrive but if you have special needs through ADA you will be able to contact this email address and they can help you out y assigning one of these this particular cabins like we did. shorex@rccl.com Here is the thread I used to research the cabanas.
  15. When we rented a car in Ireland it was out of Shannon because the roads from the airport were rural right away. Coming out of Dublin will be more congested so I would suggest coming out of Dublin Airport where it won't be quite so congested.
  16. I have been on the ferry out of Doolin specifically to Inishere and on the return trip took the water view of the Cliffs of Moher. I have not been to inishmore but my strong suspicion is that you would not be able to see the Cliffs of Moher except in the far distance so I'm sorry to disappoint but I cannot see how that would be possible.
  17. Thank you that is a thought to do pre and or post-cruise Edinburgh Southampton. What would be the most efficient way to investigate which itineraries utilize the interport system? Thank you
  18. What is an easy way to find out which itineraries around the globe have interport itineraries? I've never heard of them before reading this post. For example we are Outlander fans and I am very interested in somehow getting over to Scotland either by a land trip or possibly by Cruise. Not much time is spent in Edinburgh on a cruise. If I could join a cruise Edinburgh to Edinburgh instead of whatever the real in the ebarkation/ Debarkaton Port is that would be ideal.
  19. I think the library is a great suggestion. If you enter through the cabin hallway, the white double doors leading to the library is not readily marked as such so you have to be on the lookout for it. There's also an elevator from the first level of 270 up to the library level that might be useful for him as well.
