    Steel-cutting began on 15th. November 2018, when the project started up. Look how far they've got in just over a year!

    A few pics for you? Getting there should be no problem. 20 of you might require two mini-vans. Amenities in the area, yes.
  4. Hurry Up and Wait -the usual thing. Chill out and relax until you're among the last to disembark. Get staff/crew to help with the wheelchair!! You should have already made mention of the wheelchair thing when booking -if not, do so now - 'Special Needs'
  5. I'd do it again too just for the photo opportunity! Not to mention the pancakes I had.......
  6. Now you say that I vaguely recall we were chanting something similar! I think we started right at the stern, on Deck 5 -Comedy Club? and made our way along the main promenade then down two decks in the atrium -and in to the theater on Deck 3!
  7. You'll have fun and giggles. Guaranteed. Somehow we even got involved in the parade with us carrying banners and placards! see photo! It ended up in the big theatre up front, where CD Felipe Couto read us stories......
  8. Not difficult to think that maybe White Island is the central core of a far larger partially-submerged caldera that is the semi-circular shape of the Bay it sits in....

    Bad idea ?

    The elevator itself is probably very quiet. It's that load of drunks going back to their cabins while singing pub songs that you have to worry about!
  10. Go here to see all my pics of The Event - on Carnival Liberty. April 2015
  11. We bumped into said table right outside the bank of midship elevators as you go towards the main pool. She looked at us curiously (two mature, maybe-elderly ppl) " You DO realize this is a kiddies thing?" she asked -lol We assured her we were in it for a laugh, since our kids had been reared on Dr. Seuss. Cost us $5 each! lol
  12. I agree with this. Take all sorts of backup documentation!! Being denied boarding has to be one of the most depressing situations I can think of.
  13. Whatever it is -it doesn't sound good, does it not with folks bailing out with their luggage... that's never a good sign
  14. Not sure if this may have been mentioned already? but in case it has not, here is a link to my local island-newspaper reporting an unfortunate drowning while Grandeur of the Seas was in port. A 65-yr-old American man: His body was found floating in the water and was brought ashore by three unknown individuals... which might indicate a heart-attack, rather than 'getting into difficulties'? https://www.nationnews.com/nationnews/news/243014/update-drowning-pebbles-beach
  15. Book tickets here. Link below. Choose suitable time of day. Would suggest times between 10 a.m. if you're an early mover and 2 p.m. latest! because you have to get back to the ship!!! We did the 11 a.m. tour (takes an hour) - but doing the house tour as well will extend that. Suggest you aim for 11 a.m. -or just after lunch (1:30?) https://snahr.com/tickets
