  1. Thanks for the info. We thought we would go to VC first and if no good, hop on the local bus and go to Darkwood.
  2. Thinking about going to Avila Beach Hotel when we are in Curacao. Can we take a taxi from the port? How much would it be? Is it doable walking there? How much is a day pass at the Avila Beach Hotel? Any info would be most helpful.
  3. We take the local bus and usually go to Darkwood Beach. Have been there many times and the water was calm with no drop off. The last two times in 2019 the water was very, very rough. It was very difficult to get in or out of the water. For this next cruise this Feb., we are thinking on going to Valley Church Beach. Does anyone know how long of walk it is when we get off the bus to get to the beach at Valley Church. Also will the water be rough? Is there a drop off?
  4. We also were on a Caribbean Princess last Nov. Our water that we purchased for our room was Costco "Kirkland" brand.
  5. Do you have a medical implant? See my earlier post on the note that Princess had on a small piece of paper with instructions about the medallion. CAUTION: .....................................................
  6. They take your picture at the desk. Check in was quick as we were platinum. Did not see any lines for others. Most people wore the medallion around their necks. One cruiser said it looked like they were in a cult. We don't text either. I rather talk to our adult kids.
  7. Forgot to mention that we do not an Iphone or other make. We have one flip phone between us. This suits are needs.
  8. We checked in at the pier like before. They had our medallions waiting for us. No need to tell them beforehand. Medallions were given to us when we checked. in. Then we went to guest services and they gave us the regular cruise cards. With the cruise cards, we were able to unlock our cabin door. Even without scanning them. We got the regular cruise cards because my husband has a cochlear implant in his head. There is a caution note (in very small, minute letters) with the instructions on how to use the medallions. Caution: Product contains magnets which could be harmful to pacemaker users and other with medical implants. The ocean medallion should be kept at least 6" away from pacemakers and other sensitive medical equipment."
  9. Not true. My door unlocked without placing the card on the designated spot. I just had to be in the vicinity of the door.
  10. Why use a medallion when a cruise card opens the door and gets you off and on the ship. Princess could of use this money better IMO than on the medallion. And again, if you have a medical device implanted in your body (in very small print), Princess says to use CAUTION.
  11. Just off the Caribbean Princess. Did a 14-day cruise to the Caribbean. We got the medallions when we checked in at the pier. We only have a flip phone between myself and my DH. So could not do the app. Once we got on board, we went to Guest Services to get regular cruise cards. No problem. I just kept the medallions just in case. Did NOT use the medallions at all. We were able just to open the cabin with the card. Door did open automatically (yes, without the medallion). Also worked in the casino. Just put your card at the medallion that was pictured on the slot machine. Now for the serious part. My DH has a cochlear implant in his head. We did get a small booklet for what the medallion was "good" for. As an after thought, Princess had a small sheet with the booklet. It stated in very small, minute printing: CAUTION: Product contains magnets which could be harmful to pacemaker users and others with medical implants. The Ocean Medallion should be kept at least 6" away from pacemakers and other sensitive medical equipment. You can't believe how many people did not see or read this information. Most wore the medallion around their necks. Our cruise had mostly seniors and I wonder how many had pacemakers or other implants. Princess should of invested this money on upgrading their food in the MDR and buffet. Needless to say, we were not too impress with the food or this medallion "thing."

  13. Just found out that our balcony guarantee cabin on the Epic is above the Bliss Ultra Lounge. How loud will it be when things are happening at the Bliss Ultra Lounge? Also I see that things start happening at 11:00 PM. Do you know when they end? Any info would be most helpful. It seems that NCL mostly book guarantee cabins.
  14. So this is after you go through security?
  15. We will be embarking on the NCL Epic out of the Pan America Pier. Are there stores there where we can buy wine, water, soda?
