  1. G.M.T., I agree with you! I have never had any problem with any cruise line's customer service, including MSC. I think this is in a great part due to me doing a great deal of research and due diligence BEFORE my booking. Then I DO NOT change it. Changing an order with anyone is asking for trouble and mishaps. If I get the wrong size, I ALWAYS do a new sale, receive the item, make sure it okay and then I begin the return process. The same is true with cruises. The only times I have had changed anything about a cruise is when NCL cancelled my booked cruise, due to pulling out of Houston and then AGAIN when my replacement cruise was cancelled due to a Sixth Man music charter. Thin in itself was a bit confusing and irritating. I research EVERYTHING, even the exact cabin I chose with my lifetime subscription to "Cruisestaterooms.com". I make sure I like the ship, cabins, ports, etc. before I make that call... has saved me a lifetime of stress. Jamie, so sorry you are having problems. I hope all turns out for you.
  2. Russ, sounds fantastic. Only a few weeks until I experience it for myself. Thanks.
  3. I booked an inside YC on Seaside for next month because I am travelling solo. I would not do it if I was travelling with someone else. I understand the common areas are so nice in the YC I plan to be out of my room most of the time.
  4. I am a worrier too. So, think you made the right choice. You might have made your early flight but stuff really does happen. One cruise we were supposed to return to Long Beach but were diverted to San Pedro. Everyone with flights before 2 were scrambling as the cruise line were bussing people to LB. I am not even sure what happened with luggage. It was lucky for us we kept our luggage to walk off. We called a friend who lived 6 blocks away and spent the day with her as our flight was the next day. We were very lucky to have dodged a bullet. Many were not.
  5. The Dawn was my least favorite. After Sun, Epic, Jewel and Norway.
  6. Three or maybe 4 adults. That 5th? No way. A lot depends on the relationships. Who sleeps with who? the suite sleeps 6 if half are small kids.
  7. Why be stressed? Call the airlines and see if they can give you something after noon.
  8. The worst that could happen is that they hold them until your cruise is over, (I am guessing). Great picture.
  9. Aloha 1, thanks so much for a very readable review. One can just get a feel whether the reviewer's impressions vibe with the reader's and I definately could relate to a lot of what uou mentioned. I will be embarking in exactly a month. First MSC YC solo. YAY.
  10. Thanks so much for your reply.
  11. Wow. Sounds chaotic. I am on American in first class. The FC fare for Miami was ridiculous. So, my choices were FLL first or MIA coach. My legs voted for FLL. When you factor in bag fees, meals, drinks, easy boarding, it was an easy choice for me as a solo traveller. Thanks for the info.
  12. What do I need to know about FLL airport? What makes it so awful?
