  1. In February, MSC was giving away a lot of free Caribbean cruises to casino players. Since many of them were cancelled, I was wondering if anyone was able to get MSC to give you another free cruise for the one that was cancelled.
  2. I would not buy RCCL stock now. It has the possibility of falling much further now. I am considering buying CCL or NCLH because it is almost impossible for them to fall much further before they start coming up.
  3. Someone said that MSC was not serving Corona Beer anymore because too many people were afraid of getting the Coronavirus. Could there possibly be any fact to this statement?
  4. OK, so we like to sit in our cabin or on our balcony and mix our own drinks. With the drinks or more package all the liquor bottles in the mini fridge are included. We can quickly run out of the couple in there so how often can we get the room steward to replace them? Yes I know I drink too much, but that was not the question...…….
  5. Yes, Fernando is running his liquor store now instead of his wife. I was there a couple of weeks ago and bought a good sipping tequila that he recommended and at a very good price. Now I wish I had bought 2 or 3 bottles to bring home. Fernando knows his tequila and will give you very good recommendations and will be cheaper than any other place around. Of course you can stop in and buy a cold beer for $1 also. His store is on Calle Huauchinango which is the main street driving into town. I don't remember the name of the cross street. It is just a tiny little store that can't hold over 6 people at a time but very busy because many of the locals buy from him knowing he has the lowest prices.
  6. 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.
  7. 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;
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.

  14. 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.
