    Thermal Suite & Thalassotherapy Pool

    We just booked a Breeze cruise in 2020, only our 2nd cruise ever. I got us a spa balcony and we are super stoked about using the spa! We are both sun worshippers and don't mind a good party and a bunch of drinks... but we both love to relax in a quiet environment also. We both work very stressful jobs, and my wife and I both have back problems.... so we can't wait to switch off and lounge on those heated chairs and try out the T-pool!

    MSC Seaside | September 22-29th, 2018 | Bella Experience

    Strongly considering booking an MSC cruise for our 5th anniversary next spring. We've only cruised once, on NCL. It was ok. We are mid-30's, no kids, and the idea of constant activities and CD announcements is not appealing. Definitely following this review!

    Great Stirrup Cay....yes or no

    May 2016 - NCL Spirit - Yes
  6. Depends on if you're looking at the front or back I imagine. You can either see the leaning tower of pisa or the tar pits :'):'):'):'):')
  7. Thank you for your future healthy liver when my goes belly up! ;p

    Drink package? Yes or no (energy drinks)

    Real life southerner here. Can confirm, this phrase is 100% condescending and we love using it. You may also see "Bless him" or "Bless her" or if someone really wants to throw down some extra condescendigness (yes, that's a word) you'll simply see "Bless." All of which are, of course, said with the nicest, sweeter-than-sweet-tea and peach cobbler tone of voice. Tell your mama 'n 'em hey, and y'all come back now, ya hear?

    Saddness with carnival corp and my pvp

    I'm sure I'll catch heat for this, but whatever. I wouldn't go. I couldn't possibly enjoy my trip knowing that at any minute, my health could take a turn for the worse in open sea or in a foreign land. Not only would that put me in jeopardy, but it would risk ruining the trip for thousands of other people. It's selfish, in my opinion, to risk all of that. You live in Florida - why not fly to the Bahamas for a land vacation? At least you'll still be in a tropical location and have much easier access to a medical facility that could treat you versus the on-board doc and hoping that USCG or Medevac gets there in time so keep you from dying. I'm not a bad person and I honestly wish you all the best. But it may be time for you to face the music and stop cruising. It may just save your life one day.

    Credit Card and Room Safe

    Think outside the box if you're that concerned about someone opening your safe. - unroll a long strand of TP off the roll, place the designated card against the remainder of the roll, and re-roll the TP you rolled out. Will it be perfect? No. But no one will ever think to look there unless the steward wants to put on a fresh roll of TP - take a bottle of water with a label, undo the label, hide the card between the label and bottle, use a small piece of tape to secure the label back together. Face the bottle of water with the name brand facing out, your card should be on the opposite side of the bottle, and voila, another hiding spot that won't get a second glance. - take your designated card, stick some two sided tape to it, and tape it to the underside of a dresser drawer. There's another one for you. Just a few ideas.

    Cabin Change Advice

    Thanks! We just finished discussing moving to the 6 day on the Conquest, it's nearly the same price with 2 extra ports and only a 2 hour extra drive. I think I've almost got her convinced to change! Especially with dry-dock coming up this fall for the Conqust!
  13. Good to know. Thanks ;) (y)

    Cabin Change Advice

    All great ideas! I've already given up my morning Starbucks run. I just get regular coffee but that saves me about $13/week. I drink the free coffee at work instead! Since we aren't cruising for another 58 weeks or so, that's a lot of money! We don't spend much on trinkets, we budget for the casino and have never bought the cruise photos. This is only our second cruise....but we didn't intend to buy any this time either. We have a very nice camera and take a ton of our own photos. We also are driving to the port the morning of. Last year we went a day early but it's because we had a free night at Days Inn. And I don't think we are gonna do any excursions. Amber cove and Turks are the only 2 ports. We also have to budget for our dogs being boarded. But if I can steer clear of Starbucks, I can cover that too!

    Cabin Change Advice

    Lots of votes for keeping the aft wrap! Just gotta convince DW to go that route. And our cruise is 5 days, not out of Charleston but that doesn't really matter. But breaking it down by saying 40% of the trip is sea days is a smart way of looking at it. On our very first and only cruise, we enjoyed a nice afternoon nap in our cabin on the sea days. I imagine we'd enjoy it more with a nice wake view and a huge balcony! Thanks for all the input! Only about 410 days to go haha
