Just came off Seaside. We are both Black. It is one dinner per stateroom. 1 or 2 Black doesn't matter. And it was the standard menu for the restaurant.

I stood in that (long) line several times, so can relate. Some of it was due to inadequate data (for example, they never told us the immigration forms had been eliminated so I went looking for...

Agree! We're Elite on Princess and nobody matches their perks on that level. Nobody. However, we are willing to give MSC (and Seaside) a try for something different, and it was the status match...

MSC has tickets for tenders? Hmmm...another difference. Good to know, thanks.

Can't agree with that one. I've never paid for coffee and breakfast in my stateroom on any other line ($7/day on MSC). Zip lines on RCC are no charge (as is their "sanctuary" equivalent). Charge...

Really? Now criticizing people for NOT wearing lanyards? That was the snobbery I read in the referenced post.

Like I said, to each his own. I prefer not. Milady likes her lanyard, which is why...

Because I keep my cruise cards in a book for a memory of the 28 wonderful cruises I have taken. I do not want it defaced. (Ignore the ridiculous answer right after you asked this question.) If you...

WE have "drink package A". Does anyone know what that means? MSC website has zero info.

The walls (and doors) on most ships are steel, not magnetic. Magnets will stick to them, but not vice-versa.

We're sailing next month (January). Plan to take lots of pix. This is a new ship and new cruise line for us, so will be taking lots of notes.

I enjoy formal nights, and will probably be there in my kilt and Regulation Doublet. Not formal, just black tie. Sometimes white dinner jacket, which is equivalent to a tux when in the Caribbean. ...

"Formal" in the Caribbean is white dinner jacket, black tie (which, as you know, isn't really formal), tuxedo pants, etc. I'll do that one night on our upcoming Caribbean cruise on Seaside...will...

"Feel superior to"? Really? After 27 cruises, I love to find newbie cruisers....their excitement is contagious!

So....no photos or sketches of what to expect inside. Guess we'll have to wait until our January cruise.

I've seen it on Carnival, but in 19 Princess cruises on 11 different ships, I have never seen such.

Looking forward to trying it.....something different. Bummer that it is sailing out of Miami.

Thanks for the info. As for his age, it is irrelevant (but...he is 50). Just hasn't cruised out of Miami before. We have, but booked a really crappy hotel due to our ignorance. So couldn't...
Recommendations for Miami Overnight Pre-Cruise
My son and Lady are sailing on Equinox soon. The ship has moved to Miami since we sailed. Where would you recommend for an overnight pre-cruise stay near the port?
