  1. Two weeks is a great way to start cruising! The Breeze is a great ship. You must try Guys Burgers. I ate one everyday on a seven day cruise! They are delicious. Give the 3d theater a try it was fun. We sprang for the spa pass for our cruise and it was so worth it. You get access to the thermal spa all cruise long! It was relaxing with heated loungers sauna and a mineral water pool with jets it was amazing. The few ports you listed sound amazing. I have not had the pleasure of getting to any of them yet so I can’t help you there but if you book excursions you might want to book through Carnival. A piece of advice I learned is never to take a taxi or tour from anyone soliciting outside the cruise port. Inside they are authorized to be there and it is safe. Outside and you don’t know if it is legit or not as those groups have not been authorized to be inside the port. I hope this helps a bit! Have a fantastic first cruise. You will probably be hooked after! Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  2. I’m guilty of bringing my glass of wine to the MDR many a night. Sometimes my own pour in my room and sometimes my drink before dinner from elsewhere on the ship. I don’t think it is tacky to do so and have never been asked about where it came from. Just don’t try to leave with your unfinished glass of wine from chops because they will stop you as they use real crystal glasses there!!! They gladly changed out my crystal for a cheaper version!

  3. I didn’t realize pier 66 lost Hyatt. I stayed there three days before Irma hit. We were at sea for two weeks due to the hurricane. Still is a great place to stay especially for the great view from the tower rooms! Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  4. Marriott harbor beach is a great place to stay on the beach. I like the Hyatt Pier 66 also while not on the beach has a great pool area and lots of nice restaurants like Pelicans Landing on pier 66 for some great yacht watching! The Hyatt has golf carts that will give you a ride from the hotel down the pier to the restaurant. Hyatt and Marriott are some of the few hotels that you have a view of the cruise ships at Port Everglades. We had a great sunset dinner on the water there! The rustic inn is close to the airport in FLL and the stone crab should be in season still during your visit! You can sit outside by the waterway. Try the garlic bread it was delicious [emoji39] Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  5. This is perfect and so true! Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  6. That was going to be question also. I thought no water or soda from outside the ship anymore .... hence why they made the cases of water to be purchased before boarding an affordable price. Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  7. Doesn’t look like Carnival has upgraded much as all we have is a mention of guy’s burgers/ more food , the app and if on the right ship the decor Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  8. Never seen this with Carnival but on NCL newer ships like Escape they have single cabins and a lounge area and activities like dinners and meet and greets for solo cruisers without the double occupancy charges Sent from my iPhone using Forums

  10. I’m in NV too and had a friend who got a ticket just for having her phone in her hand while driving. She was not using it. I don’t know how many times I have been in the line at Starbucks and it is held up by people on their cell not paying attention sitting in the drive-thru. QUOTE=awestover89;56439374]Honestly thought it was nationwide already. Didn't realize some states didn't have these laws yet. Although NV can be a bit excessive at times, had a co-worker get a ticket because he was using his cell phone while the car was turned on, even though he was parked. Officer claimed that as long as the vehicle was running he was "in control of a motor vehicle" and the cell phone ban applied, regardless of if the vehicle was parked or in motion. Was thrown out in court, but still, a lot of trouble for something that shouldn't have been an issue. Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  11. Saw plenty of kettles , irons, steamers, and even a panini press on the naughty table disembarking off my last RCCL cruise Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  12. Try looking on NCL website they sell some ship merchandise there https://norwegiangiftshop.com/index.php?id_category=3&controller=category Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  13. It is 2 bottles per cabin and I usually hang onto my glass from the bar and use that for my wine... I pour it in my cabin and walk the ship with it no problem ever. Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  14. No but imho Royal has the embarkation process down that every time we have cruised with them we don’t even wait to board.....I don’t see a need for FTTF I have cruised Allure and Harmony and with the large amount of cruisers it is the smoothest process for boarding and disembarkation I have experienced!

  15. I don’t think that the amount of alcohol served should be a factor... how many here have committed a sexual offense simply because they were over served? I’m willing to guess none. The alcohol didn’t drive the attack the individual was already inclined to commit this attack imho. The cruise line has a curfew and anyone out after that curfew is supposed to be with an adult. I would say we need more facts about why he was not with his parents or in his cabin. The article as it is written certainly makes me believe the parents are mainly responsible for the situation not the cruise line. Sent from my iPhone using Forums
