  1. Debarking in Miami and will do self assist. What time flight can i schedule from Miami? Or Fort Lauderdale? Sent from my iPad using Forums
  2. Thank you! Great responses! Next question, I see I have to book entertainment prior to cruise. Will that open up on app after final payment?
  3. We have cruised many times, but never on MSC. We recently booked during the “balcony at the price of an inside room” sale. We are not big drinkers, but enjoy the freedom of drink packages when cruising. If we buy basic drink package (I read where that covers a drink up to $6) and I order a frozen drink ($8.75), do they just charge you for the difference in price? This happens on Celebrity and NCL and I am curious. Thank you. Sent from my iPad using Forums
  4. You didn't run across any hidden sun deck spots? Sometimes there is just that place that no one knows about...Surely not on the side of the walking track like your pic showed!! Crazy.
  5. If I want 4 deposits, do I pay $500 or $1000? Do they still give onboard credit, say if I buy cruise next cruise credit at the beginning of my cruise? I need an expert here. Thanks!
  6. Would the balcony rooms in the AFT on Deck 6 be noisy due to being located close to Eden? I really don't know what goes on in Eden, especially Deck 6.
  7. THANK YOU for advice to ignore some of the criticism! We don't sail until April and I have all ready lost sleep thinking about how early I need to get up to get "common" seats by the pool for 4 people (2 being my inlaws who we are introducing to NCL). Three current questions I have are: did you eat at Q? If so, how was it? I booked it thinking my Father in law would like it, but am considering changing it to French Bistro. Also, do the dancers still entertain at dinner in the Manhattan Room? If you have sailed NCL previously, how does The Local compare to O'Sheehans? I usually don't pay attention to all the negativity, but I have also never cruised on such a large vessel and the bad reviews are abundant. Thanks again!
  8. Waiting on April flights to be assigned.
  9. Thanks! Both replies told me what I didn't want to hear, but knew. I will prepare to call when I get to 120 days! Bummer.
  10. My reservation is still too far out to book, but the other specialty restaurants say that on my planner. Onda, the Italian place, says reservations are not offered. Any idea?
  11. I am cruising on Solstice to Alaska soon. We have 8 balcony rooms in a row; will they open up the balconies so we can move back and forth or share the view? I have had both sides opened up before just not this many.
  12. Seems every website I get directed to has various listings for restaurants and bars on this new ship. Anyone know anything about the Speciality restaurants and bars?
  13. I thought being booked in Grand Suite got my family on board earlier. Why did I have to pick a boarding time? What if I show up earlier?
  14. Carnival Sunshine reviews say that on the 5 hour monkey excursion you only see monkeys for 15 minutes. Any thoughts on this? What about booking through an outside company? April is trip time, so advice is needed.
  15. Wondering if prime rib is featured in O’Sheehans on the first night. I’m sailing on Getaway June 3. Sent from my iPad using Forums
