  1. If renting a car, Where would you start first to beat the masses and work back too? or Is a Jeep a better option? Do the Jeeps have AC? Or are they the more off road type without doors like some of the tours? We like to get off the ship early and try and beat some of the tours to the better places. OP, Hope you don't mind, figure it would give you some ideas too.
  2. She always wanted to ride horses in the ocean , and I surprised her with a Private Ride in Aruba.
  3. Long story short I did this May of 2018 for our 25th anniversay . We had talked about new luggage as our was years old. I said we we needed new luggage for our upcoming cruise and my wife agreed and I was going on a business trip a few weeks before the cruise so I said I was buying it for the biz trip . I printed out boarding passes and few other things for her and put it the new suitcase. Week before my biz trip she wanted to pack my bags....I said ok.... She cried. Congratulations.
  4. Your first wife would have taken it away from you ! 🙂
  5. We did an 8 Day this past Sept from NYC on the Sunrise. Loved it so much we booked a 9 Day Next Sept from NYC on the Magic. We loved the Sunrise by the way.
  6. This should get you excited. This was leaving Coming back to Port 9/12 Go Up tp the Bow to the hidden decks. We had an Aft wrap and waited for the bridge , then we went up to the bow.
  7. Exactly, Nice Dividend to at $0.50 per share 4 x a year. I have 200 Shares that is buying me a few dividend shares a year, been averaging two 8 days cruises a year so that's an additional $200.00 in my pocket. With the Price down last year I got over $600.00 + between dividends and OBC as well as owning the stock. Good time to buy if anyone is looking good a buy and hold stock if you know the risks. In the past year it was up to just under 60 per share.
  8. How long is the taxi ride? Were there taxi's waiting after to take you back? We don't leave port until 11 PM so plenty of time. Thank you!
  9. Buy Low sell High! I am hanging on. Pays a nice dividend and get a $100 for each cruise..
  10. I just switched from the Horizon in Sept 2021 to the 9 Day from NYC Aug 2021.
  11. I wouldn't take it because of the balcony view. I'd get tired of looking at the life boat all week. I spend a lot of time on the balcony. Suite is very nice though.
  12. I just switched an 8 day Horizon Cruise Sept 2021 to the Magic 9 Day from NY in Aug 2021
  13. We always set them up during the week and add to them accordingly - The Stewards get a kick out of it. The Igloo I made kept falling over. Chai was a great Steward.
