  1. We used the Hub App on the Sunrise's 1st cruise out of Norfolk. You requested a table and how many people were joining you and with in ten minutes you got a notification that your table was ready. Really easy to use. I saw a bunch of guests going to the desk on Deck 5 to get a table then they had to go back to Deck 3 to the MDR to get seated. We had no problems using the App.
  2. We just booked an interior Havana cabin on the Horizon for April 26, 2020. We just got back from the inaugural Sunrise cruise and booked this one. Looking forward to the Havana area.
  3. We just got back last week from the Oasis Cabana and they have steps leading into the water. It is a great place. Make sure you try "The Cruiser" drink. We Loved it.
  4. We caught the ferry over to Placencia and spent the morning there. We rented a golf cart and drove around the area. Take the early ferry if you can and they will tell you what time to return to Harvest Caye. It was about a 20 min ferry ride there. We still had plenty of time to enjoy the pool at Harvest Caye as well. Hope this helps.
  5. We will be boarding on Monday on the inaugural cruise from Norfolk. Can't wait to see what they have done to the ship. Bon Voyage!!!
  6. Posting a question for the DW... Does Carnival give you plastic or paper straws for the cocktail drinks? Also we have the Cheers package and she wants to know what type of straws they use for the milkshakes? Thanks for the info. We are sailing in 16 days on the Sunrise!!!
  7. I am looking for a spreadsheet that was on here listing about 40 to 50 different cocktail drinks to get on a cruise. If anyone has a copy of one, please post here so I can download it. Thanks ...🍹
  8. We are booked on the 1st cruise out of Norfolk on April 29th. Looking forward to giving a review once we get back. Only 27 days to go!!
  9. Welcome to the wonderful world of cruising .... I would recommend Victor Bodden Tours in Roatan. They were fantastic. We did the Zip and Dip and even got to hold a sloth at their compound. The Zip lining is for all ages..check them out at boddentours.com. They took us to the west bay beach after zip lining. In Cozumel, we did the Nachi Cocom Beach Club which is just a little down the beach from Mr.Sancho's. www.cozumelnachicocom.com. Never been to Belize so I can't comment there. Hope this helps
  10. We are on the inaugural cruise on the Sunrise in April 2019. We have been on RCL and Norweigen and this is my wife's 1st time on Carnival, my 3rd with them. We love the idea that they are putting over $200 million in renovation. Hope this helps you make a great choice.
  11. Great Review!!! We were at West Bay Beach this past April when we sailed on the Getaway. We met you two years ago when we were on the Escape and you lead the Meet and Greet. We have been reading all your reviews and I agree that the cruise lines need to hire you as a writer and travel advisor. We are doing our 1st Carnival cruise next April aboard the newly renovated Triumph, which will be known as the Sunrise. Come on along with us on that one if you can find the time.
  12. There are some posted already. Just Google Getaway Menus and you will be able to find them. Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  13. Great review. We will be sailing on her on April 22nd. We are flying into Fort Lauderdale from Richmond VA.We are from the Staunton area. We are waiting to see if Roatan's dock will be ready for us since the ship hit it this week. Thanks again for the great review and we have also sailed on the Escape and loved it.
