  1. We're in the same position as you! Our flight is scheduled to arrive in FLL at 2:55 pm. I called to see if we could still hire SAS. The gentleman on the phone explained to me that they do not service the airport after 3:00 pm because they provide transportation for school children in the afternoon.
  2. Was luggage valet offered on the Navigator sailing?
  3. Thank you, SRF! I never thought of the $0 trip cost option! Your advice has solved my problem. We always buy the cruise line insurance because we book so far in advance. We order the ship's insurance at time of booking and we are covered for "cancel for any reason". (Yes, I know it's only 75% of the cost of our cruise toward the purchase of another cruise.) We do not have to pay for the insurance until final payment. So, if we cancel before final payment we lose nothing. With most other insurance policies you must buy your insurance within two weeks of booking your travel in order to get the "cancel for any reason" waiver. Then, if you cancel your travel before final payment you lose your insurance payment. For our January 2020 cruise we ordered the cruise line's insurance when we booked the cruise and (thanks to SRF's advice) we will purchase a higher quality medical/evacuation insurance policy just before our cruise for less than $100 for the two of us.
  4. Where is this sign posted? Where is the taxi stand closest to the port? We had to walk a fairly long way almost to the floating bridge before we found a taxi. Is there a taxi stand closer to the ship?
  5. Last month (June 2019) when we exited the ship, we walked a long way -- almost to the floating bridge -- before we found a taxi. We never saw an official taxi stand, just people asking if we wanted a taxi. (In retrospect, I don't know if we ended up in an official taxi or just a guy with a van.) However, on our return from Mambo Beach our official taxi driver (his license plate started with "TX") dropped us off at a gated area very close to the ship. Where is the taxi stand? Could we have gotten a taxi much closer to our ship at that gated area?
  6. Yes, Washington Dulles to San Juan, PR.
  7. That was not the case for our trip last month, we actually got a better price than the airline offered. We usually are not charged an extra fee, perhaps that is because we are D+ members.
  8. Yesterday, Air2Sea's price for our DCA-MIA round-trip flight on American Airlines was $496/pp versus $452/pp if we purchased directly from the airline. Although Air2Sea guarantees the lowest price, they couldn't match the airlines price. The Air2Sea representative said they would give us the difference in on-board credit on the ship.
  9. What is the distance, time and price of ground transportation to/from Fort Lauderdale airport versus Miami airport for a cruise out of the Port of Miami. Is luggage valet available at both airports? If so, what is the earliest flight time home that qualifies for luggage valet at each of the two ports? We will be sailing on Royal Caribbean's Explorer of the Seas in January 2020.
  10. Thanks for your calculations. Where did you get the $45.98 figure? When we sailed last month with Voom Surf and Stream on one device, we did not get that much of a D+ discount, only about $39.98. We did purchase the 2 device package for $205.11 on Cruise Planner for our upcoming cruise.
  11. If we can purchase a Voom Surf and Stream 2 device package on a 9 day cruise for $22.79/day on Cruise Planner is that better than purchasing on the ship with our D+ discount?
  12. Has anyone visited Delfins Beach Resort either on their own with a day pass or as part of an excursion? Please tell me about the resort. The pool looks lovely, but is there enough shade there? Umbrellas? How is the beach and the ocean water? Shade on the beach? Is water rocky or clear and good for wading? Would you recommend this resort?
  13. Has anyone used the day pass to Delfins Beach Resort? Please tell me about the beach. Can you walk into the water -- or do you have to jump off a dock or take stairs into the water? Is the water very rocky? Do you need to wear water shoes? Can you swim in the ocean water? How is the pool? Is there much shade on the beach or at the pool?
  14. My device doesn't list the VPR. Aren't the ETL requirements the same as the UL requirements? What is the difference between ETL and UL?
  15. Yes. it is the Cruise On outlet that you described. Here is a link to the multi plug outlet that I purchased on Amazon. The back is almost exactly as shown in the photo except that mine does not have the line "VPR L-N: 800v". The one in the photo is dated "1/18", while mine is dated "7/18". https://www.amazon.com/Cruise-Power-Strip-USB-Outlets/dp/B07BHVKPC3/ref=sr_1_3?crid=3HBD1FZE5C910&keywords=cruise+approved+power+strip+no+surge+protector&qid=1562002086&s=gateway&sprefix=cruise+approved%2Caps%2C134&sr=8-3
