  1. I did this 10 years ago, and am going again in a week (yay!). Had a great experience last time and expect the same this time. Beautiful area, smaller group, quiet, away from the crowds with very good snorkeling, as I recall. Highly recommended.
  2. From my perspective, all cruise line excursions are too crowded - and more expensive than booking on my own. For Grand Cayman, highly recommend Stingray Sailing. You can read plenty of great reviews here and on Trip Advisor. Beautiful catamaran, never crowded, Chip and crew always provide a superior experience. If you book this, please tell them Peg recommended. 🙂
  3. Yes, definitely agree about using the S&S account - funds go really fast that way. 🙄 Thanks again for everyone's input. 🙂
  4. I won $1250 once - that's as big as I've hit on a ship. As a general rule, the winners are either the guy in the seat next to me, or the machine I just left. 😉
  5. Thanks. I'm really not a newbie at this, but it's been a while, and I'm trying to figure out if there's a way to keep the cash deposit I'll make upon boarding separate from gambling funds. I will bring cash (X amount/day) for gambling, and don't want to spend more than that each day. With moving to different machines and knowing how funds go in/out (of whatever account), there must be a way to ensure I'm not using that $200 deposit. Do I have to keep a running total on a calculator, based on the amount I walked in with? Surely there is a way to keep it separate...? 😄
  6. I would not gamble if I wasn't an optimist. 😉😄
  7. Thanks - my second time on this itinerary, but it's been 10 years. I see you were just on the ship - any other tips, cautions, etc.? 🙂 As I recall, any funds remaining at the end of playing a given slot machine automatically go onto my S&S. Do I just ask the cashier to give me a certain amount of cash against that, or...? I know I have to keep a certain amount available for on-board expenses, etc. Thanks!
  8. Going on the Legend very soon. I take a certain amount of cash specifically for gambling, and prefer any 'winnings' - or whatever's left from that day's play funds 🙂 - not be put on my S&S card/account. Can I cash out each day at the casino cashier, or...? Any insights appreciated. Thanks.
  9. Don't feel bad. I did the same thing in Cayman once. 🙂 Sounds like you made the best of it. Is that "intel" something you can share?
  10. Very interesting! 🙂 So Coz is on same time as ships time in January, anyway. Thanks for the info and for sharing the mural video. 🙂
  11. Hi. I'm looking for feedback, comments, etc., on the Coz Street Art Tour. No reviews yet on Trip Advisor (https://www.tripadvisor.com/AttractionProductReview-g150809-d17797191-Cozumel_Street_Art_Tour-Cozumel_Yucatan_Peninsula.html) Other questions: * Sailing out of Florida in January. If a local tour starts at 9 am, am I correct that that is 10 am ship time? * Distance / cab fare from Carnival port to downtown? I seem to recall it's about a mile, but been a while since I've been there... Thanks for any input. (ship cal below is wrong; we sail 1/5! 🙂 )
  12. Interested in the street art tour in Coz. No reviews yet on TA. What did you think?
  13. We're on her 1/5... I think it'll be fine. Damage appears to be primarily to Glory.
  14. Thanks for everyone's input. Interesting, because I asked "is there a certain amount that must be available (or held) for a 7 night cruise?" - that is, is there a minimum amount they require be available. I didn't ask for pros/cons of debit vs cc, but everyone sure is opinionated about it... who knew. 😉😄
