  1. Hi! My spouse, myself and our two daughter, ages 6 and 9 are sailing for the first time on the Splendor out of Long Beach. We're treating ourselves for the first time to a Spa balcony as we love the spa and when our kids are in Camp Carnival, we take full advantage of the spa services. We've been on several cruises with different lines, but never on the Splendor. She looks like an older ship, which has me a bit concerned. My girls are huge swimmers and loved the Water Park area of the Vista and Dream. It doesn't seem like the Splendor has that type of water features, is that correct? Any tips or recommendations for enjoying the Splendor? Thanks!
  2. I was just on the Vista and it does have a T-Pool. Quite lovely.
  3. Hi, Is the address for the Residence Inn the one on 600 Queensway Dr, Long Beach, CA 90802? There's another less expensive one further away from what looks like the port, but I'm traveling with two children and want to make sure we're in the tourist area. Thanks!
  4. Thanks everyone, We're still torn about which to choose, but will probably go for Paradise Beach as Mr. Sancho's seems to be often very crowded. I also doubt that we'll drink/eat $50 worth of food or beverages. The best thing, we really don't have to make a decision until the morning we pull into port! :)
  5. Interesting. So far, the November 11th cruise itnerary hasn't changed. Watching it closely now.
  6. That's an amazing price! Thank you.
  7. Woo! Loving your review! You are so awesome and I'm thrilled for you that you gave yourself the gift of this solo trip. I'm female and cruising solo soon, so loving all the tips and reading about your experience. My biggest concern is dining alone, but I think I'm just going to bring a book to read. Loving that you ate, drank and did what you want and only want YOU wanted to do. :)
  8. Just curious if anyone has bought any personal use medications at a Pharmacy in Cozumel that usually require a prescription in the US? Things like Latisse (eye lashes), antibiodics or other medications that are costly in the US. Any problems with the medications? Are they the actual meds or fake? Any problems bringing them through customs? Thanks
  9. Hi! Friends and I are debating between going to Mr. Sanchos or Paradise Beach on our own. We've never been to either. I've been reading lots of positives for both, but weighted towards more negatives for Mr. Sanchos. I've checked and there's going to be 6 ships in port that day, so we put down a reservation for Mr. Sanchos b/c it looks like its going to be super crowded. However, it's only $5 pp reservation, so we're willing to let that go if Paradise Beach is the better option for us. We're looking for: 1. Safe and reasonable travel for 4 females 2. A nice clean beach with lounge chairs & some shade 3. Swim able water w/o too many rocks or seaweed in water 4. Beach side restaurant for lunch 5. Bar with good cold drinks 6. Easy relaxing beach day So, what would you pick? Mr. Sanchos or Paradise Beach? Thanks!
  10. Adorable!! I see my reading spot. 😀
  11. Woo! Thank you! This was super helpful & encouraging. Love the bonus feature!
  12. It’s not a “downer”, just haven’t ever had an inside & am a bit nervous about it & looking for hints & tips.
  13. Ziggy!!! Hi!!! Thanks. I’m so looking forward to it. 😀
  14. Absolutely!! I couldn’t agree more. I’m traveling solo for some Me Time & would rather have an inside, then the stress of sharing a higher catagory with someone other than my family.
