  1. We have done that tour twice with Autoprogresso. Both times they left around 10 or 10:30. If you are off the boat early as possible you can spend a little time in town beforehand. After the tour they do drop you right back at the shop by the ship after the tour but you can asked to be dropped off near the beach/town if you want. You would probably have about an hour or so before sail away.
  2. We like Eladios. With each round of drinks you order they bring out lots of small plates of snacks. Very good and reasonable prices.
  3. Yep. They will probably try to sell you on the AI option but just ask for the pay as you go.
  4. You can do a mini tequila tasting at Uvas. They let you sample 3 or 4 different ones in the little shop thats on the right as you enter.
  5. We have done the catamaran snorkel thru shoreexcursioner.com and really enjoyed our experience. No lunch, but snacks and drinks.
  6. I was just getting my "cruise folder" paperwork ready for our upcoming cruise and I found a fun times I had left in there from our last one. The band's name was Group Therapy. They were really good.
  7. Paradise has lots of chairs under palm trees on the beach or you can also have an umbrella if you want.
  8. Mothers is fantastic, but it can get a little pricey. Worth going if you are staying somewhere within walking distance or you can catch a streetcar. Our pre-cruise breakfast ritual is Two Chicks Cafe. It's located in the bottom of Fulton Parking garage on Convention Center Blvd. The food is fresh, inexpensive and DELICIOUS.
  9. We have done Money Bar and Playa Uvas and enjoyed them both.
  10. The "rock" band that was there in April was really good but I can't remember their name. I love the live music on Carnival.
  11. Thanks for the review. Do you remember the name of your head waiter? Getting a good one makes all the difference to us.
  12. When you get off you are funneled thru the shopping area at the pier (before you get on the shuttle into town). You can't miss him.
  13. I wonder if they will move another ship over to fill in?
  14. We have stayed at this hotel 3 or 4 times and we really like it. It's a safe area to walk in.
