  1. Agree completely with this. Allure is my favorite ship, there is SO much to see and do on her. You cannot beat all the live music venues around her at night. And yes, the entertainment is top-notch. Mama Mia is a fantastic production. And DO NOT MISS the aqua show! You will be overwhelmed with all there is to see and do...she is a destination within herself. I find it worth it to treat yourself to a three-night dinner package because the specialty restaurants are outstanding. 150CP is my personal favorite, if it's still there. I was told that it will be replaced with another restaurant.
  2. Nothing drums up more discussion than Cats. After my Oasis cruise last year, I finally understood why. I promised myself that I would stay AT LEAST until the first act, but my legs had something else in mind and walked me out of the theatre somewhere in the middle of the first act. I just couldn't take it any more. The set, the costumes, the choreography, the music, the singing, the entire production was TOP NOTCH. But good Lord, I could not figure out the damn plot or what the point was. When I dragged my son out of the kids club, I said, "You have got to see how bad this is," and walked him into the theatre. By then, most of the audience was gone. We stood there and watched a few brutal minutes and walked out again. Cats is the butt of our jokes to this day. "Remember how bad?" One of us would ask the other. And then we would laugh and laugh. It would be a damn shame to keep this production on the Oasis if most of the audience is gone by Intermission.
  3. A little late with my response, but thank you again to everyone who took the time to post their thoughts.
  4. This was VERY helpful, thank you megr1125! You're absolutely right that food is subjective. When I look up favorite restaurants in Yelp and see that Olive Garden is number one, well... Thank you Debbdo! Thanks Tony O. Holy cow, so many recommendations and none of them are the same! Looks like I can't go wrong.
  5. I appreciate all of the responses. Sounds like Marriott is the favored of the two. I am referring to the Marriott that is just south of Little Italy. If I'm looking correctly at the map, it is a little further from the cruise pier than the Hyatt. Either way, I'm sure both are a cheap Uber to port. The Hyatt is super close to a Starbucks. Super sad that I even use that as criteria. I fly in early that morning, so I have a lot of time to explore the area. I've been to the aquarium before, and while it was pretty impressive, I'm not so sure I'll be doing it again. Speaking of Little Italy...what is your favorite Italian restaurant for pasta? Asking for a friend. A friend who likes pasta.
  6. Staying one night pre-cruise in Baltimore and am considering both the Hyatt and the Marriott. The Marriott rooms look bigger, but are there any other glaring differences that make one stand out over the other? Location better at one?
  7. Oh my gosh, thank you. Comments like yours are very humbling. I am so glad that you enjoyed it! Anyway, yeppers...I recommend Nachi Cocum over Cozumel Bar Hop. I mean...free drinks all day under an umbrella? Pffft. No contest. Then again, the Bar Hop was more social and therefore more fun. NC was relaxing and quiet. I guess it depends what you are in the mood for.
  8. I haven't figured out how to multiquote yet. I have been on Rhapsody, and I absolutely loved her and her staff, but that was back in 2011. Am looking forward to a long solo getaway on Grandeur. It pleases me to see so many positive reviews on her. Also, testing the whole new photo capability... ETA: It works! But how long is my photo going to stay there. Hmm...
  9. Hey! You came back! Alright, I'll start a thread and hope the idea catches on. I love it when I make friends on cruises and agree to meet up with them again. :)
  10. Thank you, Broberts! I enjoyed writing it. The issue happened well before the website changed, so I don't really know what happened. So I will still blame Facebook. Is there a better place to upload photos? I tried Instagram, but didn't really care for that.
