  1. I wondered if anyone had resent experience with Yardie and specifically the Countryside tour they offers.
  2. We have a Miami to Max tour booked and need to be at bayside Market (bubba gumps) at 9am. I assume this isn't a problem as they cater to cruise passengers. We are wanting to meet Bag boys (to take our luggage) at the port. What time should we plan on? Can we be off the ship at 8am? We will take our own luggage off and we are a balcony,Havana cabin. If we meet bag boys by 8:15 can we make it to the tour by 9 am?
  3. Does ncl offer better rates for their flights than the airlines? I am weighing the free fare vs booking the flightthrough ncl.If you book regular flights through ncl do you get to choose? I am asking as we have sailed with Carnival and got really good prices(substantial savings) for flights.
  4. Anyone have comment on the cabanas? Is it farther down where you usually snorkel? Trying also to figure out if snorkel gear is included? Thanks for feedback
  5. I agree ,Alaska is a little less about partying and more about the scenery. We could hardly leave the deck! Pools are not as busy as it is cooler. We always do the shows and didn't do many as you are tired from the days. Carnival does not usually do Glacier bay and the year we went Endicott arm was the alternative as not many ships got into Tracy Arm. Carnival was a cheaper alternative than other lines and we felt we got a taste of Alaska. Don't worry about the line ,look at the ports, and if the cost is prohibitive, consider carnival,be prepared,Alaska ,once you see it....you will want to go back!
  6. Hoping someone who gets off HORIZON will reply. I wondered how busy the Havana area is at night and are they leaving the pools and hot tub open until 11 pm. Any updates on how the recent changes affected the area would be appreciated.
  7. Hi Looking for an island tour of Jamaica from Ocho Rios. I am hoping for a group or small group as there is only 2 of us. We hope to see some of the island, maybe a water falls and would like to see how the locals live. Any suggestions? Thanks
  8. Are there people offering tours of Jamaica at the port. I think we are hoping to see some of Jamaica and maybe Dunn's Falls. What can we expect to pay at port?
  9. Any reviews on using this service. I am apprehensive about letting my luggage out of my sight but a day without luggage sounds pretty amazing. We're they punctual delivering from Miami port to Miami airport?
  10. Any opinions on Miami Max tour and boat before flight out of Miami. I liked it because they will take luggage. Any other tours that also take you to the airport?
  11. Thinking of taking a taxi from Ocho Rios to Dunn's Falls and take our time there but what do we do the rest of the 8 hour port day? Is Ocho Rios a larger port area? Thanks
  12. Thanks for the replies, we took the plunge and booked a havana balcony. Very excited!
  13. We noticed the Havana pool area is open to the public in the evenings. (5-7 at night). Is anyone allowed in the pool and hot tub at that time or just the deck area? Opinion if it is worth the extra. Looking at aft cabins in the Havana area. Thanks
  14. We used fly to fun 2 years ago and as long as the program has not changed I would at least look at prices. When we flew from Detroit to Seattle we saved 100.00 on a 500.00 flight. I was able to pick the flight I wanted and had Delta website open and Carnival was 100.00 cheaper each.
  15. Are there always the Mercedes lined up for tours?
  16. I have been on Legend in Alaska and it was comfortable on the ship. I am hoping someone can comment who took her to Austrailia or carribean in the summer. Does the air conditioning keep up when it is in a hot climate. Wondering the interior comfort level when Legend does the Mediterrean next summer! I know it will be hot in Italy and Greece,hoping the ship offers a cool reprieve!
  17. We want to see the beauty of this island and wondered if I would really be missing out to not do some tour away from old town. We are wanting to see the beautiful water views that you hear about. Any ideas for economical tours to accomplish This?
  18. Interested in feedback on My Best Tour which uses golf carts to tour Rome. It is a guided tour and not self drive. Anyone know if you did the 6 hour tour if you can get to see much of Rome (Without touring inside the Vatican or Colosseum) and get out to the Roman Aquaducts? Thanks
  19. So how do you get these upsells? Is your cruise completely paid for or have you sailed many times? Some of the offers had me intrigued....inside to a balcony! Wow
  20. Thanks,I know when we do cruises to Mexico ship time and local time are different,wanted to confirm before booking excursions.
  21. I am not sure if I can get a definitive answer on here as Carnival does not have European home ports yet...but I will ask. What will the on board currency be on Legend when it said Barcelona to Venice and returns in 2020. Thanks
  22. We are sailing France,Greece and Italy,will ship time be the same as the local time in Port?
  23. First time visit! I assume by the reply above but please clarify. You can walk into St Peter's square without going through metal detectors, correct. The queries are to get into the Cathedral etc.
  24. Thank you for all the replies, I will take off the Spanish steps and the Vatican would be a quick look around St Peter's Square if we had time. We are anticipating it being very hot (July) and as well we have some trouble with walking steep hills. (and Yes,summer is the only time we can travel!) This is a port day from Civitavecchia. Anyone know if it would make sense, if we didn't go to the Vatican, to take the train from Trastevere (as long as we did not do the express train.)
  25. Just happened to read in another post that Termini area is "up hill". Is Rome very hilly when walking around the historic center. Is one direction more downhill? We had planned to go from the Coloseum an head Roman Forum,trevi fountain, spanish steps, Trastevere and maybe Vatican. We realize this is too much walking so maybe catching an uber to transfer between an area. Is there a particular area of Rome that it would make good sense to avoid up hill walking? Using the train to get to Rome.Thanks
