  1. We are booking a cruise for Nov 2020. Included in our booking is the basic alcohol drink package. Just wanting to know if we could upgrade once on the ship and the cost of the upgrade. Thanks!
  2. Than you for all of your opinions and insights. We were drawn to MSC by the price and the extras offered in their Black Friday deal. In comparison to RCL, which is what we have been on, the price is better. We don't require all the extras - Yatch Club level or any other level above Bella. Yes, I understand this is an Italian cruise line and many aspects of the cruise are European. My husband and I are going to give it a try. For the price, we can't pass it up - $1693 for a Bella level balcony, in Nov 2020 with free WiFi, gratuities paid, and free drinks package. It would be double for the cruise alone on NCL or RCL. We are looking forward to it. Gorgeous ship, 4 stops including Ocean Cay, and it's 7 days vacation away from work. Can't complain about that! LOL
  3. My husband and I are contemplating booking a MSC cruise next year. We have seen the Black Friday deals - no gratuities, easy drinks package included and WiFi included with no fees. I've researched a few cruises so far. Thinking of booking either the Meraviglia or Seaside. We would get a balcony room. We have sailed RCL and NCL before. We are 45 & 43. No kids. We like to relax on a cruise and enjoy the shows & casino. So those of you who have been on MSC - what are the pros & cons. The ships look beautiful. Just wondering how the food & entertainment are. Also, I know the shops are larger than we have been on before. Does it feel too big? What about crowding? We love RCL but their prices are higher when comparing to a MSC balcony room. How are the drinks when using the Easy Drinks package? Thanks for all you help fellow Cruise Critics. 😁
  4. I used the public bathrooms for #1, never for #2. Just wondered why so many people didn't go back to their own cabins for #2. OR bring some poopouri along if they were going to use the public bathrooms for #2. Many times I did walk to back to our own cabin to use the bathroom, even for #1 because the smell was so bad in the pool & Windjammer bathrooms.
  5. Just got off Brillance Of The Seas. Beautiful ship. Yes it's small but it makes getting around very easy. We had a great time. But a question - Quite a few of the public restrooms smelled disgusting. I noticed it in the women's restrooms. Forgot to ask my Husband if he noticed it in the Men's restrooms. What is it with people not going to their own cabin to USE the restroom, if you get what I mean. The ship is small. It takes less then a few minutes to get to your cabin. The Solarium women's bathroom constantly smelled, the women's restroom in the Schooner Bar and the restroom outside the MDR also smelled horrible. Why doesn't RCL put air freshner's in the public restrooms? Also why can't people use their own cabin for that?
  6. I've seen posts about the dress code. I'm so confused. LOL Shorts are still not acceptable, correct? I see that for a short time Royal allowed shorts in MDR but then quickly changed that. What about jeans? Nice, dark jeans and button down shirt for men, jeans and a nice blouse and heels for women? Is that acceptable? Thanks.
  7. Thank you all for your suggestions and input.
  8. Haven't been on a cruise in about 12 years. Going on a 5 day, Brilliance Of The Seas, stopping at Grand Cayman & Cozumel. How much cash should we bring? We are going to Nachi Cocom while in Cozumel. In Grand Cayman we will be walking around hitting the shops and taking the Callypso Distillery tour. Thanks for all your input.
