  1. We were on NCL Sun last week. Didn't need to get a ticket if you disembarked between 8-8:30 got in line at 7:45 and we were thru customs and bank by about 8:30. We were at the meeting place for our guide at 8:45 and he showed up right on time at 9am. Our place to meet was one block to the left after leaving the terminal. We now know how lucky we are to have what we have.
  2. Thanks I'll keep checking. Haven't been on RCCL ship for about 6 years are any of the specialties ala carte, does the pkg price include tip, are the packages good at any restaurant?
  3. I couldn't find anything about dining packages for our cruise on Symphony in March. What type & cost of packages do they usually have?
  4. Isbel met us a 9am at the building to the right that looks like a ship. I gave him this list and we saw or stopped at them all including the Hotel National. We did not walk in all the 4 squares it was raining and DH has a walking disability. I requested in advance that we did not want to stop for lunch due to some diet issues. I did bring along some PB crackers and some other snacks and water we were finished by 3pm. Ibel was a fabulous guide there was hardly a minute that he was not describing something. We did not stop at the San Jose Mkt I had picked up what I wanted at the other stops. This is the list I gave him we saw many other things that were not on the list. 4 main squares minimal walking approximatley ½ hr Drive along the Malecon Fusterlandia El Bosque de la Habana Cristobal Colon Cemetary John Lennon Park & Statue Plaza de Revolution Christ Statue Downtown Area Capital Building Central Park Grand Theatre of Havana Bacardi Building Shop for Souveniers ( San Jose Market )
  5. We used Blexie Tours last week and our guide was Isbel. I must say he was the best guide we have ever had, we learned so much and saw so much my head was spinning. He took into consideration my husbands walking condition and had the driver backing down streets to pick us up. I gave him a list and in 6 hours we saw everything on it. We also used Blexie tours for our pick up and return to Tropicana. Isbel made the arrangements and when a different driver showed up he handed me a phone and Isbel explained the change and wanted to make sure we were ok with it. That driver made sure to tell us where and when to meet and since it was pouring rain after the show he came running up to us with umbrellas, which we had left in his car, then ran to get the car for us. We had a 59 Chevy 4 door sedan with AC during the day and a 56 Ford Fairlane 4 door sedan with AC in the evening. Make sure to reach out a week or so before your tour to confirm your meeting place the government is not making it easy for these private tour companies. We spoke to one couple who missed their tour because they were at the wrong meeting place. This was a once in a lifetime port for us.
  6. Thank you so much for the pictures they were very helpful. Is the Jr Suite as large as the pictures make it look on the RCCL site? Have a great cruise!
  7. Is there a way to make a countdown clock? If there is instructions please.
  8. Does the tub/shower combo in the Junior Suites on Symphony have a very high side to step over? We were recently on Ncl Sun and the sides were dangerously high for us about 20" which was above my knee. We have been on Allure & Oasis & don't remember them being that high then again that was 6 years ago so maybe it didn't bother us as much then. Does anyone know the height or how I can find it out?
  9. Re book as a totally new booking at the going rate and keep the cabin I picked?
  10. To be clear the cruise is repriced at that days fare with any promotions that are going on? Do I get to keep the cabin I originally picked?
  11. If I book a cruise that's 10 months out at a refundable rate can I then change it to non refundable in a few months when I have air fare booked? Will RCL just remove that additional fee or will they rebook the cruise at the going rate on the day I change it?
  12. We already got our tickets they are the mid price ones. Thanks again.
  13. Thanks for that tip I made a note of that.
  14. Our cruise is next week. I purchased mid range Tropicana tickets online a couple weeks ago. I got a little worried when I heard about the travel restrictions but for now I guess it is all good. If we don't like where they seat us I'm going to have a couple CUC's ready to see if that will get us a better seat.
