  1. in most cases it's not illegal, but it's ill advised, because 3 year olds do not have the maturity or impulse control to sit in a booster properly. When you put the kid in a booster, you put their lives into their own little hands. And they have to be mature enough to always sit in the booster properly (and, of course, meet the min height and weight limits). That said, my kid used a no back booster for cruise travel when he was almost 4. He was the size of an average 5 year old and exceeded the minimum requirements of said booster. It was for a 2 mile taxi ride, and I sat in the back with him and made sure he sat properly the entire time. At home he was harnessed until 6 years and 7 months. We also didn't (and still don't) use a no back booster for rides longer than 50 minutes, because he falls asleep and falls out of the booster. We brought his harnessed car seat with us when he was 5 and we had to drive a rental car for 3 hours. Side note: You cannot use a booster on the plane or in a vehicle with the lap belts only.
  2. Regal Princess had boxes of cereal on our Thanksgiving '19 cruise.
  3. https://boards.cruisecritic.com/forum/386-florida-departures/ perhaps, you should check out Florida Ports of Departure subforum - it should definitely have the information on shuttles.
  4. please do not rent car seats. You do not know their history: they could have been in an accident and never replaced, or they could have been puked/pooped/peed on and improperly cleaned, thereby compromising seat's safety.
  5. it took 40 minutes for an uber????? Thanks for the review! Loved it!
  6. wow, two hours? professional hair and makeup for my wedding took this long. We take a 5 minute shower each, and then DH and DS get dressed and chill while I put on my makeup, dry my hair, and put on some clothes (max 15 minutes).
  7. Port security didn't ask to see the names on them in St Thomas or St Martin. They just wanted to make sure we had medallions.
  8. we liked the clips like this. Got them on amazon. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07BCX6HG1/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 any holder that you get for a Fitbit Zip should fit medallions just fine: https://www.amazon.com/s?k=bracelet+for+Fitbit+Zip&ref=nb_sb_noss_2
  9. what kind of food did the truck serve, please? and the buffet?
  10. you should also look through a bunch of threads in this subforum - about once a week somebody asks about the car seats, and a long discussion follows... Or do a search for "car seats" on this subforum. :
  11. gotcha. Yes, I agree. We (DH and I) are not the water slide kind of people, but our 7 yo truly enjoyed the ones on the Getaway, but he doesn't need the free fall kind. Nor can he safely ride one. I think the min weight limit was 100#. 🙂
  12. not always cheaper. Last April we sailed on the Allure of the Seas ($1,600 for the 3 of us, inside cabin, 7 days). This April we are sailing on MSC Mera ($1,600 for the 3 of us, inside cabin, 7 days). November of 2018 we sailed on NCL Jade ($2,000, OV, 3 of us, 10 days). And we can only sail during school breaks which makes it so much more expensive to cruise. NCL's food was bad. Yes, bad. And we are bracing for the same on MSC, but we get to cruise and we don't starve, and we do want to try something new, and will love the entertainment. I believe Meraviglia has both a ropes course and a water slide. And we couldn't even eat at O'Sheehans on NCL because of the heavy smoke smell permeating the entire deck.
  13. I don't know because it's our first time on MSC, but DS is not always fond of the kid's menu. Plus, paying $48 for a kid's menu and a show seems a bit excessive.
