  1. We are looking at the partially obstructed cabins on deck 4 near the midship elevators. We have never considered this location before so any help will be appreciated. What is the noise level like in these cabins? We were thinking of a large inside but I recently learned that I really don't like not being able to see outside. Thanks Marcia
  2. Has the price of the Pinnacle lunch changed?
  3. I am looking at 8041 8045 and 8037 on the navigation deck. I can't tell from the posted pictures, is it easy to watch television from bed ? It is a strange question but that is how I fall asleep at night. Thanks Marcia
  4. From the information that I can collect, it seems that the Fort Lauderdale boat show is an annual event during the last weekend in October. We are considering a cruise leaving Nov 1. Other than increased hotel prices, does the boat show disrupt the city in other ways? We usually stay at the Riverside Hotel one night pre-cruise if that makes a difference.
  5. I have never been to the fitness center so I have no idea about their noise level. Can anyone tell me if the cabins under the fitness center experience noise from above? Thanks Marcia
  6. Thanks for the info. I will mark our booking "do not upgrade" I definitely don't like hearing noise in my cabin.
  7. We are planning to book a CQ on the Eurodam or Nieuw Amsterdam. We usually book a veranda cabin and mark it "do not upgrade". This will be a longer cruise so we are going with an outside CQ and thinking of marking it as "ok to upgrade" since the next step up is a veranda. Has anyone done this and what was the result? Also are the veranda cabins on deck 4 loud....especially above the entertainment venues? Thanks
  8. If you cancel a tour after the deadline for cancellations you will receive a refund if the shore excursion office is able to sell your ticket to someone else. We cancelled one evening for a tour the next morning. We were lucky and our tickets were sold within an hour.
  9. We have cruised in a VF on deck 8 and were happy with it. I enjoyed the views from the higher level its proximity to the Lido pool and restaurant. I planned to go to a public space on deck 2 or 3 if seas became rough but it wasn't necessary. Overall we would book this cabin again.
  10. We are looking at cabins inside cabins 8060 and 8056 n the Eurodam. Does anyone know if they have sofa? A room without a sofa is a deal-breaker for us. Thanks Marcia
  11. We like a VE cabin on deck 8...Navigation deck by the forward elevators. It is under the spa and beauty salon and convenient to the lido pool and restaurant. We did not hear any elevator noise. Have a great cruise.
  12. We experienced a similar situation. Our cruise was chartered several months after we booked. All communication went through our travel agent. We were given approx. four new cruises from which to choose and the complimentary addition of the Explore 4 package. After the initial shock it worked out fine.
  13. Several years ago we tipped $50 for the week. We received a lot of personal attention so we were happy to give our attendant extra.
  14. The spa and probably the gym are open on port days. The spa usually offers specials on port days.
  15. We are thinking of staying at the Hilton Marina Fort Lauderdale pre-cruise. Does anyone know how far the walk is from this hotel to a store that sells cokes and sodas? We would like to take them on board with us. Or is there a hotel in the 17th street area that is closer to the store? Thanks Marcia
