  1. Haven't seen for awhile. There are kiosk several places now. Easy to do.
  2. I thought 5.00 was cheap. Would not have surprised if it wasn't 10.00 or more years ago. It was neat for grandkids and there were a lot of adults without kids. Would do again.
  3. We are doing Radience in Sept. New England/Canada have balcony on deck 8 starboard mid. Offer was deck 9 port mid. Seems like the same just other side and up one. 20.00 more seems about same as booking myself. What do you think?
  4. Carnival Radience 7 day from NY. mock booking is 600.00 difference
  5. I have an ocean view on deck two, got offer to go to balcony on deck 6 for 470.00 for two of us. What do you think?
  6. Thinking of doing Canada/New England in Sept. I feel that on an Alaska cruise you need a balcony room. How about Canada/New England. Price is quite a bit more. Been on 23 cruises and have had balcony on the last 18 or so. Would I be disappointed with an ocean view. I know its a matter of personal preference just wanted other opinions. Thanks.
  7. Can't wait for new England/Canada review. Thinking on doing in 2020. Some reviews don't sound so good. Cold not so bad, been to Alaska 3 times. Need another view point. Thanks
  8. Don't know about taxi but did the caves three weeks ago. Very hot in cave, not like caves at home. it is called an above ground cave. They had fans all thru the cave. It was nice but nothing special. The cave was about 45 min. The time at the beach was a little over an hour. Beach has a sea wall out about 3o yards. You could swim out to it and stand on the rocks. No waves at all.
  9. Thinking about Canada/New England cruise in Sept. What can you tell me about the weather, ports and shore trips. Any must see things? Been to Alaska
  10. Just back from Magic 8 day. Me and wife (23 cruises), daughter-in laws mom (5 cruises), and her dad, (first timer). On the day we left the newbie's dad (96) was taken to hospital. Things seemed ok for a few days then things changed. Daughter-in-law called ship and she said things didn't look good. There was a lot of debating what to do, the best place to fly back was Aruba. They needed the internet to kept in touch. Here's the kudos, Carnival gave the internet FREE. As they do, they posted it under charges and then under credit. The family back hope told them to stay on cruise. They did, but he passed on Sunday. Thanks for a wonderful job Carnival.
  11. What did you do in ports? We leave Saturday.
  12. How hard is it to enter the Atlantis sub? Wife has trouble climbing stairs not too bad ladders rough.
  13. How hard is it to get in and out of the Atlantis sub in Aruba? Wife has trouble climbing. Stairs not so bad ladders rough.
  14. Had one and didn't care for it. As stated: Pros Larger Quite Cons Hot Long way from most activities. I like to look forward and aft, only aft unless a wrap.
  15. Yes it is SeaTac, seattle Tacoma. Have been 3 times and always had to pay for shuttle. Didn't find any with it.
  16. Have never had a past guest party in the theater.
  17. Thinking of getting 8 day pass for my wife. Would like feed back. She has knee pain and arthritis.
  18. I always do the doors when the grandkids go. Usually one in soccer and one in volleyball. I use things that I print out on my printer and use the poster putty stuff. Can find about anywhere.
  19. Looking at an Alaska cruise in July. About the only balcony cabins are deck 5. On the deck plans it shows the life boats, are they obstructed views. On the pick your cabin tab it shows the same cabins on balcony and obstructed views. Different prices but same cabins. This is not for me but a pastor friend. Don't what something that would not be awesome.
  20. We were in Tortola years ago. Don't recall the tour but we went to the other side of the island. Beautiful beach cresent shaped. We have been on 23 cruises and when people ask what port we liked the best I always say Tortola. Most have never heard of it. Never been back but would do again if comes up.
  21. I'm 64 and always ask for things on the kid's menu. Tablemates think I am nuts until the banana split comes. Next night everyone wants one.
  22. Try google maps. they have a link for motels along route.
  23. I use the guava breakfast dink on the vanilla soft serve. It's great. You have to get at breakfast and keep in room till later. Once I had a big cup for later and I guess the cabin steward thought it was left over from breakfast and TOOK IT. Now I hide in refer or behind something.
