  1. https://www.royalcaribbeanpresscenter.com/press-release/1507/royal-caribbean-marks-2021-return-to-caribbean-with-cruises-from-the-bahamas/
  2. In the news this morning, Royal will sail out of Nassau starting in June. Everyone must be vaccinated and pass Covid tests, restrictions once onboard. It has to start somewhere, hold on cruising can’t continue indefinitely. As for South Beach, 1K+ arrests, guns confiscated and lots of damaged rental vehicles. Large groups doing dine and dash, some have been caught but restaurants losing the battle for the most part. Based on how things are going, this will be the last spring break for these folks, at least in Miami Beach.
  3. Miami Dade mayor has brought up the discussion of getting the cruise industry back online. Local news is saying possibly June/July cruises to the Bahamas. Royal might be the first ones out of the gate.
  4. She pulled up to the port, turned away and is now picking up speed.
  5. She's doing 22.2 Knots according to one of the popular naval traffic sites, destination still showing Cozumel.
  6. Thank you for confirming, this is great news. Was on Carnival Magic over New Year's and the internet was abysmal.
  7. How’s the internet on the Carnival Sunrise? Was it upgraded during dry dock?
  8. Had cabin 2262 for the New Year’s cruise, no problems whatsoever. Room was dated but everything was clean.
  9. I was on this cruise as well, had a great time. Food was good, portions have gotten a bit smaller since I last cruised with Carnival (Vista/Horizon). As the OP stated, this ship has an incredible amount of rust. I mostly cruise Carnival and have never seen so much rust on a ship while cruising with them. There's no effort to paint, they mostly spray a cleaning solution to remove the rust stains. We had a Cove Balcony, rust was all around you when sitting out on the balcony. Our room was dated, rugs had stains but it was clean. The ship is definitely long overdue for a dry dock.
  10. We did a two day on Horizon and had a great time, it goes by quick though. The only gotcha is the price, some two day cruises are more expensive than a 3 or 4 day. There's not much to do at Nassau, water is cold at this time of the year and you might also encounter jelly fish. We ended up doing an excursion to see the Atlantis aquarium, also gives you access to walk the property which was nice. Go for it, better than staying in town.
  11. Chef's Table is great, recommend you try it at least once. Not sure about the Carnival Magic but some ships host it in the library and the presentation isn't as good. If you travel on Vista Class, they have a dedicated dinning room within the galley just for this event and I have to say the setup is fantastic. Even for those that were hosted in the library, the food was tasty. Steak House is always a solid experience on Carnival, just sailed twice with Royal and I was completely disappointed when visiting theirs.
  12. I've mostly cruise Carnival and recently tried Royal, Mariner of The Seas and Rhapsody of The Seas. Found the MDR food to be boring and very repetitive, had better luck with Windjammer. While on Mariner, decided to give the Steakhouse a try, it's definitely nowhere near what Carnival offers. What finally sealed the deal for me was, seeing our waiter step out to the Windjammer to grab our dessert. Shows were also a disappointment on both ships, guessing the Oasis class is a different story. Carnival has done a good job of improving their entertainment, enjoyed all shows aboard V
  13. Thank you everyone for the tips and for sharing your experience, appreciate it. I'll definitely start looking into your recommendations.
  14. She was headed to Amber Cove. Another odd one, Magic headed to HMC but it is taking a longer route, navigating North of Freeport.
  15. I'll be doing a new year's cruise on the Carnival Magic out of Fort Lauderdale. Have a couple of questions for those that have sailed her recently: What was your internet experience like? Plan to buy prior to boarding, don't want to overspend if everyone is reporting a poor experience. Any recommendations, as far as excursions, for Grand Turk or Amber Cove? Considering going for an ATV like excursion. Open to suggestions. How was anytime dinning for you? Was there a long wait to get a table? If you have done a new year's cruise with Carnival before, any tips
