That's great
And you'll have much more fun than you did in Destin. Though I do miss the Emerald coast.:(

Boozebabe,
I am with you on this one. I book my room purely off the size as well as the sweet balcony. I could care less about the VIP boarding. Carnival needs to look at using the machines that...
Go Legend
I would say the Legend would be the way to go. I took the Miracle, sister ship, out of Tampa as well and the whole trip from start to finish was fantastic. The Tampa port has it together and you just...
Other rooms as well
I just looked at several sailings thru March and the prices are the lowest I have seen on any Spirit class ship. And it is not just insides. Check out the balconies for lower than $500. Now that is...
Laundry
I know on deck 5 that they were in the very back of the ship near the aft wraps. Hope this helps.

Your ignorance of the situation at hand leads you to believe that you were lied to? Come on crew chief, show some freakin compassion for the person in need. Being an aircraft mechanc and...
Deck 5?
I had a wrap on deck 5 of the Miracle and had no issue with the room. The balcony is huge and the room is of decent size. Anyone care to elaborate why deck 5 is inferior to the other decks? I...

You will see armed guards but do not worry. I approached a pair to take a picture at my beach club (Pez Quadro) and they were quite nice. Do not worry a bit.

I had a great time with Yhony on my trip. Be careful at the restrooms at the cave tubing site. The floor is a slick tile and my poor wife busted some serious tail on the way in. Yhony ran over to...

I haven't been on this particular excursion. However, I used Yhony in Nov 05 and had a blast cave tubing with him. He has a great energy level and was a riot to be with all day. I am going back this...

September 30th out of L.A. on the Vision of the Seas. A friend told me about it, so I went online and tried to book a room with a kid and no luck. I was thinking of going. My only concern is that...

THEY WERE FANTASTIC!! Much nicer than all of the other tours out there. They keep the size of their tours much smaller than most.

My last cruise I was able to sneak on 5-12 packs in my suitcase. Seeing my suitcase show up that night was just about as exciting as seeing my wifes face after she walked into our Cat 11 wraparound...

You will thoroughly enjoy the wrap around cabins. I have spoiled myself and I have no desire to cruise in anything else. I love my time on the balcony and nothing is quite like these rooms. Enjoy:D

I have to second Pez Quadro. Once you get off of he ship make your way through the pier area to the taxi stand. Let them know you want to go to Pez Quadro and they will drop you off right down the...

I actually had the same issue to deal with last year and this is what I settled for. We flew into Orlando on a Thursday, which gave us Friday and Saturday to hit the parks before our Sunday...

It is even cheaper to just put it in a check on. I borrowed a hard sided suitcase from my mom and I was able to sneak on 6 12 packs on my last cruise. It showed up with the rest of my luggage right...

All of the rental car companies have shuttles that will drop you off as well as pick you up at the terminal. It is probably a 25-30 minute drive each way.

While at Pez Quadro at the end of town I observed ladies topless. No one seemed to mind. There was hardly anyone there, so you might get some privacy if you so desire.

I have stayed in 5295, which is the same cabin flip-flopped on the starboard side. It is indeed one room and is a little smaller than the other cat 11 wrap arounds on the other decks. However, the...

Tell the taxi stand to take you to Pez Quadro. Nice little beach on the edge of town with little to no crowd. Nice drinks and you can go all inclusive for yourself for $25.00 if you want.

I second everything you wrote. I used Yhony last week and had a great time.

We went with cavetubing.com last week and felt it was quite safe. Yhony has you group up in a chain link fashion with a guide at the front. On several occassions he jumped off to steer us clear of...

As far as tendering in early we have two different experiences. The first was in Grand Cayman, where we just walked down right behind a Carnival tour and hoped on the tender boat, no questions asked....

I would do it for the fun of it! Just save your bean bag for a cruise that I am not on.:D
