  1. My two favorite places are quite close to your hotel. They are Punto de Vista on the rooftop of Hotel Milano, right across the street from Casablanca and Barachina which is on the same street just 4 blocks away.
  2. You can also park at HARRAH'S casino all day for free as long as you play the slots for 30 minutes. I usually play a 25 cent machine very slowly and you order free drinks from the machine while playing. In 30 minutes I average losing about $5 maximum and get 2 free margaritas while playing. Not a bad price for 2 drinks and all day free parking;
  3. It's more of a 10 to 15 minute walk for many people. The pier is too small for the shuttle to operate when there are 3 ships in port but usually operates when there is only one ship in port.
  4. I would drive into town. There is usually adequate parking in the parking lots in the French Quarter along Decatur or N. Peters St. unless a festival is in town. The cost of parking would be cheaper than taking a taxi there and back. Everything in the Quarter is then within walking distance including taking the St. Charles streetcar for a scenic, inexpensive ride.
  5. I just checked at Office Depot and the cheapest pencils you can buy are $1.99 a dozen. The cheapest pens are $1.29 a dozen so they aren't switching to pencils to save money.
  6. Thank you for both of your replies. It wasn't what I wanted to hear because that means that my cabin, 14076 has the bed by the bathroom. My wife rides a scooter and it is much easier to get it inside and out of the way when the bed is by the balcony but we will manage to get by.
  7. I have heard that the beds alternate from cabin to cabin having the bed by the balcony in one and the one next to it has the bed by the bathroom. I am trying to find out where the bed is in cabin 14076 and it should be in the same place as cabins 14068, 14072, 14080, 14086, 14094, 14102, 14110 etc. It should be opposite cabins 14064, 14070, 14074, 14078, 14072 etc. If you have had any even number balcony cabins on Deck 14 on the Seaside between 14064 and 14198, please let me know which cabin it was and where the bed was located.

  9. We have our own small foldable electric scooter that can drive through the regular doors on the ship. Most wheelchairs are much wider and would have problems on the narrow sidewalks although there are now some wider sidewalks on the main streets. The cobblestone streets are a little rough for either one if you can't use the sidewalk.
  10. Worse than the walk for me is the long standing in line when there are multiple ships in port and there usually are. It's not uncommon to stand in line for over an hour.
  11. My wife uses a scooter than travels through San Juan fairly well. It is narrower than most wheelchairs and makes it up hills that would be hard to push a wheelchair up. One of the main streets, Fortaleza, has narrowed the street to make much wider sidewalks. A wide wheelchair like most of the cruise lines use would have difficulty on most of the narrow sidewalks.
  12. My travel agent just notified me that the information she had was old and that they changed it on January 17 and with the new rules it will cost me $63 per person to upgrade from Classic to Drinks and More per person for 7 days. Since my wife plays the casino when you subtract that $50 credit it was only $76 for the 2 of us to upgrade. (plus free cheap wine to bring home because we drink better wine for free on the ship). I told her to book it and hope she has correct info this time.
  13. I wanted to upgrade from Class to Drinks and More but Celebrity told me that since I received the drink package for free when I booked that I am not eligible and would have to pay full price to upgrade.
  14. You won't go wrong if you stop at the Lazy Lizard at the beginning of the boardwalk. They have the best food and drinks at the lowest prices and are a very friendly group. Their beach is great also.
