  1. When I sailed Mariner, those activities opened up 90 days out.
  2. Had exactly the same issue. It does not mean anything. You're good to go.
  3. Loved the suite for the elbow room and the perks. The Suite Lounge and embark / show / debark "hop to the front of the line" stuff was really, really nice. I would suggest a suite if it does not cut back on your shore plans. Cutting the "annoyance / inconvenience" factor on a vacation is something I don't mind paying for.
  4. We got a cabana in Thrill Water Park. Great with our two teenagers. Had a great time. Nassau is... well.... Nassau. We largely stayed on the ship.
  5. I had a similar experience recently on RCI where I forgot to put in my DWs full, hyphenated name. We were taken to a port rep with a computer who, after about 90 seconds, fixed the issue and we were on my way. However, I'll avoid doing that in the future and put her name in as it appears on her passport.
  6. B I G push to purchase speciality dining on board. Especially the first night.
  7. On Mariner in early July. Can make reservations on board. We made laser tag and SkyPad reservations on day 1. SkyPad is open and jumping.
  8. All activities were open when we were in Nassau on the Mariner. We loved the low crowds and ship board activities.
  9. A few weeks ago, on the advice of the suite concierge, we went to the excursions desk and chose our cabana. They handed us a letter with our cabana number and that was that. However, he emphasized we had to do it on day 1. If we waited, they would assign it randomly. (Coco Cay was on day 3)
  10. You have to scan your card to get in. The age is on the card.
  11. I know several folks who doctor aboard cruise ships. Many of them are semi-retired from practice and move from ship to ship so they can see the world. I think it unlikely that the doctor will be on the ship.
  12. Coco Cay Thrill Water Park Cabana: For SIX people. Other cabanas outside Thrill Water Park at Coco Cay have up to 8 people. INCLUDES admission ticket for six to Thrill Water Park No need to bring beach towels from the ship -- they are provided for you at your cabana Cabana attendant can bring drinks, food, etc from a set menu. There is a locker at each cabana -- a lockable compartment in each table at the cabana can hold a medium sized backpack without difficulty.
  13. Yes, Just returned from Coco Cay. Day passes are included for Thrill Water Park. Also: Six bottles of water Six towels (you don't need to bring beach towels from the ship) An attendant who can bring you lunch and such from the restaurants And yes... the cabana has a locker. It is a compartment inside the table -- so bring your camera, etc. there is a place to lock it up. Kevin
  14. Just sailed on the Mariner. We had about three groups that got combined. Definitely need more minds on that one... it was tough. We got close but did not escape.
