  1. Hi! The Carnival Horizon always docks at Terminal D in Port Miami. Parking Garage D is directly in front of the terminal, no reservation necessary.
  2. I work at Miami and was instructed by our supervisors to tell guests that all rooms (even for Priority and FTTF) would be ready at 1:30. I asked my supervisor if they were sure and if it was going to be just for that specific day, and they said “the ship has instructed us that all rooms will be ready at 1:30 from now on” I’m not a new employee, have been working in Port of Miami for 10 years!
  3. Enjoy your cruise! We will be on the Jewel next month. Please share any tips!
  4. Thanks for your response! We saw the photos of what they were serving on the Navigator and were surprised because we had never seen that on Royal. Last year we cruised on another line in the Mediterranean and they had a great seafood buffet one evening.
  5. Hi everyone! We will be sailing on the Jewel this June to the Greek Isles, and we are beyond excited. I have a question regarding the food onboard: Someone recently posted photos of the wonderful seafood buffet offered at the Windjammer on the Navigator of the Seas. I’m curious if anyone has ever experienced this on the Jewel? Thank you!
  6. Loving your review so far! We are sailing the Greek Isles on the Jewel in June. Can’t wait to read about your experience onboard.
  7. I personally love any room on Deck 8, which is where Central Park is. I love waking up in the morning and strolling through Central Park and having breakfast at Park Cafe. Or a quick lunch after getting in from port. The convenience having this cafe on your deck is great! Central Park also serves as a good path to get from FWD to AFT of the ship. It’s centrally located so you’re away from the hustle and bustle of the Promenade or the Pool Decks.. but not too far.
  8. Yes, that’s definitely what it sounds like. They will be opening up more “Perfect Day Island Collections” in Asia, Australia and the Caribbean. (Caribbean is probably Labadee)
  9. Another vote for parking at the port. I know it’s expensive (at $22/night) but it’s the most convenient and safe location.
  10. Walt Disney World has an observation balloon in Disney Springs (their outdoor shopping, dining, and entertainment complex). They've had it for years and it's run by a company called Aerophile. They charge $20 for adults, and $15 for children. The gondola holds about 29 people and the flight "pilot." If it's too windy, it obviously won't operate, which is my biggest worry in a small island.
  11. Yes the process is usually very smooth and quick for everyone now. Did you board on the left-most boarding area (I think it's Boarding West)? I have seen many issues with that area crowding and guests on the escalator heading up. Some accidents too. The other side was expanded so it's a large hallway to avoid this issue. Debark is always chaotic, especially because there only a few CBP officers working the terminal. I think there were only three day you got off.
  12. I think you'll find a place to relax and have a nice beach day. ;) btw thanks for merging all the threads.
  13. Thanks for sharing! Look forward to more. What did you think of the boarding process and experience at Port Miami?
  14. Some more renderings. Arrival Plaza: Colorful and dynamic Arrivals Plaza, visible to guests as soon as they step ashore Perfect Day at CocoCay. Vacationers will jam out to the welcome of live music or brave a zip line ride soaring across the harbor Coco Beach Club: At the exclusive Coco Beach Club, guests will experience anupscale take on the island’s authentic Caribbean vibe. The first and only overwater cabanas in The Bahamas will offer discerning guests a new level of laid-back luxury. Splashaway Bay: Royal Caribbean’s largest Splashaway Bay, gives kids even more buckets of fun with added water play areas like fountains, pools, sprinklers, geysers, water cannons and whirlpools – plus five waterslides and two massive drench buckets.
