  1. I was merely adding to LeeW's post. Of course I agree door slamming happens everywhere. It seems to be something that many don't realize their doing it.
  2. And it's the people that let their cabin door SLAM.
  3. So sorry I quoted you with my response instead of blackfly.
  4. Couldn't they just park at the port? Check for rooms at Hyatt Place through ValueTrips when their schedule opens perhaps in October for bookings 2025.
  5. We stayed at Hampton Inn Suites Blue Lagoon this past Feb and will be staying there again next month. Once you make a reservation keep checking prices and rebook if a lower rate becomes available. Right across the street from a Publix market area with shops a couple of restaurants and fast food...great pre-cruise location. They have a comp breakfast and a comp shuttle from MIA to their hotel. Shuttle from hotel to POM is $14.00pp. Then from POM back to MIA there will be a company (with several shuttles) just outside the port terminal doors with big signs offering shuttle to MIA for $10.00pp. no reservations needed. These fill up fast and you're on your way.
  6. We used Cruise Control for our round trip needs and loved the Home2Suites.
  7. Thank you so much. I just ordered these for my 11 year old grandson. Amazon had a $30.00 off coupon so with tax they came to $42.79...great price. So again thank you.
  8. I'm not buying them for professional use. Just something for my 11 year old grandson for occasional use to watch deer and birds etc in his forested back yard acreage.
  9. We did this same snowbird itinerary and it was one of our all time favorites. Always hoping RCI will offer it again at some point.
  10. We were recently on Liberty in an OS (1348) and other than an occasional random ring of our doorbell we had no noise issues. We always have cabins near midship elevators and I completely agree with the post above. No concerns.
  11. Can you provide a link for these?
  12. We were recently on Celebrity Summit...Oh my goodness...so impressed with the Oceanview Cafe. I wish RCI WJ was this good.
  13. Navigator is one of our favorite ships but we certainly don't base it or any other RCI ship on the casino. Sorry the casinos aren't living up to your expectations. Better luck next time.
  14. Don't bother with an Uber to Maho. Lot's of large shuttle taxi vans from the taxi stand to Maho (Sunset Bar). Purchase the round trip ($12.00pp) and when your ready to return ask them to drop you off in town...Then take the water taxi (7.00pp) back to the ship.
  15. We were just there...not impressed with this port at all. We just decided to walk into town and once (finally) we got through the new port area (meh.JMHO overkill with high end shops) we were kinda hassled by locals trying to get you to pay them to walk you into town...said "we would be safe" don't fall for this. We saw some that opted for this but certainly they weren't walked back..So...apparently it was safe. We walked the short walk by ourselves to umbrella street area with no problems but once we got there...very disappointed with this "new" port. Opinions might differ but this was many others onboard overall consensus.
  16. Thanks for this new info pickup from MIA that for us starts May 1st which is a different location than it was for us this past Feb.
  17. We did an amazing private Rome tour with RomeInLimo....no worries with them when it came to timing. On another trip we joined our roll call and used Tours By Locals. For Florence we opted for the ship offered DIY...worked out great for us two different cruises. Check your rollcall perhaps you can join in.
  18. If you could do a 9 nighter I would say RCI Liberty out of Cape Liberty. This is one of our favorites and have already booked for Oct 2025.
  19. 11:30am will be just fine. We did a walk off this past Feb/March and took one of the shuttle vans offering private transportation. Big signs (can't miss them) when you exit the terminal $10.00pp they filled up very fast and we were on our way. Got to MIA before 8am...couldn't have been quicker and easier.
  20. Just an FYI if you happen to be in a suite RCI will provide you with a pair to use onboard. Their actually very good ones....Just ask your cabin steward for them.
  21. Just a couple of other suggestions to price out. South Florida Shuttles https://www.southfloridashuttles.com/ Jiffy Jeff https://www.gojiffyjeff.com/
  22. You always get four. You can also ask your cabin steward for a type you might prefer. I always ask for the isotonic memory foam type.
  23. On our recent (Feb) Explorer cruise they did this the last few evenings at the entrance to the WJ.
