  1. I have been looking at excursions for our trip next year...and they are so much more expensive than ones we have looked at in the past. I have never taken a shore sponsored excursion before...I like doing what I want at port and not being rushed....I hope it returns to this soon after cruising starts!
  2. We were sitting outside the airport ordering an uber last month when a taxi driver asked if we wanted a ride...Hubby asked how much to Holiday Inn POM...the driver said $60....we said no thanks...My friend who lives in Miami said that taxi drivers like to screw tourists...I had never used an uber before that trip coming from a small town...but we had a great experience with them...
  3. What do you all think...Will we be able to do excursions on our own by next year...or forced to do Carnival ones?
  4. I'm sorry...I meant from the airport to the Holiday Inn....My bad.
  5. I was wondering if there was a place close to port in Tampa to buy diapers, wipes etc so that we don't have to pack them? Thanks in advance!
  6. We stayed at the Holiday Inn recently which is just down the road from Intercontinental...right across from Bayside Market. The difference in price between a taxi and uber was HUGE...Uber was $16 a taxi was $60....
  7. We just stayed here a couple weeks ago (for the second time). The location is great and there is a lot to do/eat at Bayside Market across the street. The beds are very comfy...the only downside of this past trip was the traffic on Biscayne BLVD the night we stayed...We heard all of it...especially the motorcycles revving their engines at al hours of the night....I still loved the hotel...and we were given an upgrade to a suite upon arrival which was nice.....
  8. I know that they have the groups starting at 2 years old...but does Carnival do any type of babysitting service for infants? Thanks in advance
  9. Thank you all...I will check these out.
  10. Is this a tour that is doable without being on an excursion? How far is it from the cruise port? Can you tell me what is involved in the tour? A lot of walking, etc? Thanks in advance...
  11. Which hotel did you book in Tampa and why? I am looking for something that has a shuttle, pool, and wifi. Close to places to eat (within walking distance) reasonable priced (not in the slums...but not in the ritzy area. I have never been to Tampa...so don't know the area at all. Thanks in advance!
  12. Thank you...We haven't made a definite decision...but this one is tops on our list I think...
