  1. Few years ago took a cruise out of Port Canaveral. Parked at the terminal parking structure. After the cruise, as I pulled up to the exit booth and paid the parking attendant the parking fee. He asked me "Where's my tip?" 50% confused, 50% mad, I raised my voice and said "For what?" and drove off. This tipping business is getting out of hand.
  2. I'm a light sleeper. The light bleeding through in the morning really bothered me last year. So I put the pillows to good use. Once again Andrew, thank you for taking us along for the ride.
  3. Had the balloon booked for Oct 4th. Got the cancellation email about 3-4 days ago.
  4. I would check around for your own air fare first. Not sure on your dates, but google flights shows NYC to CPH anywhere between $300-500 range. Just recently, family had a flight LGW-> LAX one way non stop for $199, after getting off the NCL Spirit. Norwegian Air does offer prem eco for a very reasonable price.
  5. Great review! Thank you for doing this. Full name of the park is call "Xplor by Xcaret", consisting of Zipline, driving ATV-type of vehicle, underground river swim, and Paddle boating. https://www.tripadvisor.com/Attraction_Review-g150812-d4882791-Reviews-Xplor_Park_by_Xcaret-Playa_del_Carmen_Yucatan_Peninsula.html
  6. I have the Amex plat card... so not sure what other Amex cards have this as well. Amex use to have something called Destination Family: https://www.americanexpresscruise.com/cruises/promos/cruisepromo17.jsp?cobrand=15558&webpagerecno=2289&intcmp=ctn-o000075?intlink=ctn-a000527 Exclusive Offer1: Priority Embarkation Complimentary meal at Johnny Rockets (family of 4) Complimentary soda package (2 kids)
  7. Is there a way to hear the announcements from inside the room? Like turning the TV on to a certain channel? We did both xPlor and XCaret before, both fantastic parks... perhaps a bit rushed as a cruise excursion though.
  8. I've noticed the price change right around when Dorian hit. For a sailing later this month. -Oasis/Chill Cabana $1299-> $999 -Thrill Cabana $799-> $499 -Beach Bed $299-> $199 -Helium balloon ride (which I booked) is now gone from the excursion list, but they haven't cancel me yet.
  9. This was the issue I was having. Seems like both Rony and Bodden are highly recommended here. For a upcoming sailing, Rony asked for a deposit or pay in full... Bodden didn't. I ended up booking with Bodden. Trip hasn't happen yet, so we'll see how that goes. Looking at the older reviews, Rony didn't use to ask for a deposit.
  10. Have you heard any news regarding Coco Cay from any one of your secret sources on the ship? 😉
  11. Actually, people do. Stores like Costco have 90 day return/rebuy when price drop. Bestbuy offers price drop protection prior to actual delivery of an item that its scheduled to be shipped/delivered. Walmart (use to) offer 7 day price drop refund as well. Lots of premium credit cards also offer price drop protection for big ticket items. Reasonable inquiry for the occasional cruiser.
  12. Interesting... Van Fleet twitt got deleted?
  13. Have they even thought this through? 850+ miles, if each bus holds 60 people, how many bus would be needed to bus most (some) of the passengers from Breakaway and the Sun? It's just crazy.
