  1. Awesome! Why are you thinking you won't like the Lido deck? We've sailed on the Lido deck. Found the rooms very quiet as there is very little traffic in the short hallway. We like being near the buffet and pool.
  2. Thanks. We are looking for a relatively inexpensive and easy transportation from the Orlando airport to a hotel in port canaveral area for 9 people. Any suggestions?
  3. I call my credit cards before traveling. The last two cruises as I listed my ports they stopped me when I said Colombia. Told me that credit card fraud is rampant there. Not to let my card out of my sight. Also said to have shop/restaurant call the 800 number on back of card vs letting them swipe the card if they claim the system is down etc. Never had any problems, but found it interesting that they singled out Colombia.
  4. We are! Booked a Lido balcony cabin. Also sailing the week prior with our 2 kids and their families...this cruise is just for us to recuperate. Lol
  5. Hi! We just booked 3 cabins. Taking our kids and their families. 1 balcony lido deck cabin (booked B2B with Jan 30 sailing) 1 balcony on deck 14 and one Family Harbor cabin. Will he looking for hotel in Port Canaveral the day before. We have been sailing Carnival since 1998 with many Princess cruises thrown in the mix.
  6. After countless cruises and excursions, I can highly recommend the Embera excursion. Very interesting and scenic. They also sell crafts made in their village using indigenous materials, great quality and value.
  7. We have done this tour also. It was the highlight of our trip. After cruising since 1998, it's still our favorite. They also have an area to purchase handmade crafts. Very good quality and great prices. We bought something the chief made. He charges $1 for every day it takes him to make it.
  8. Just returned from our first MSC cruise. Was just as you explained. Was quite nice.
  9. We sail Jan 31. Thanks for taking time to make and post these videos.
  10. Bears fan here...painful is an understatement
  11. Loved this tour. The crafts are very authentic and great prices.
  12. We took the Embera tour years ago. After 20 plus cruises, it is still our favorite! Very authentic, lots of time to explore, and they offered very unique well priced crafts made in the village. Our tour took a boat to the village. On the way we saw a lot of monkeys etc.
  13. Thank you for your help! We are going the end of Jan, booked the Best Western Oceanside.
  14. We are arriving 2 nights prior to our cruise. We plan on spending the day hopping on and off the water taxi. Looking for hotel recommendations on or walking distance to the water taxi stops. As it's two nights would like to keep nightly fee around $250 or less a night. We generally stay at the Bahia Mar, but pricing is currently $300 a night.
  15. Highly recommend Bobby's Jewelers in St Thomas. He use to own Alcaric and then joined Bobby. I had a problem once and he resolved it very quickly
