Mario Tour
I didn't really want to cause any trouble so I didn't email Mario, but we were really scared we would miss the ship and that ruined our whole excursion. I at least wouldn't do this tour with Mario...

Hey all, Had a great cruise on the Carnival Liberty last week. Gotta mention the My Friend Mario tour though. We had the British woman as our guide. I can't remember her name--but you all probably...
Conquest
We were on the Conquest in Oct 2005. It is a very nice large ship with large cabins. The service and food were good. We also sailed it because it was cheaper than RCCL. We were not disappointed.
Does anyone have a picture of a Hanging Bridge in Costa Rica?

Bridge
Thanks! How long is the bridge? Can you cross it in like a minute, or does it take you more like 5 minutes of fear? :-) Also, I have a 9 year old son. Will he be able to do it?

Atlantis
We were just at Atlantis for a week. (Came back 2 weeks ago). If your tour on the cruise ship allows you access to the Atlantis beach or pools, I would do that. If you go independent, I am not...
