  1. Thank you, again for taking time to write this review. I've thoroughly enjoyed it. your review surely helps me with my planning and gives me a broad idea of what to expect for my upcoming London and Paris trip.
  2. Thank you so much Deladane for sharing your trips with us. I'm so glad I found your review as it helps me a lot with my planning for our trip next year for both London and Paris. I've just reserved tours with Strawberry Tour 🙂
  3. To each his or her own. My packing cubes are machine washable so even though I don’t use them to pack my dirty clothes, I do wash them after using a few times. I love packing cubes. The compressible ones save space (check out YouTube for more information). There are lots of different brands nowadays. My favorite brands are Eagle Creek and Gonex. Make sure to pick the brand that has ykk zippers. I almost always travel with my husband and children so like others have mentioned, I use mine to organize and separate clothes for each of us so I don’t have to dig through the suitcases or bags to look for things. I also leave the clothes in the cubes and don’t need to unpack anymore.
  4. I highly recommend cabin 2353 on the Magic. We’ve stayed in this cove cabin twice, and the last time is this past May. Quiet and no smell. Location is great because it’s close to the stairs and elevators.
  5. We just did this tour on May 30. I had been nervous at first, but got an email from Irie tour that they would shorten the tour just to make sure so I took a chance. I’m so glad I did. We had Bob as our driver and guide for the whole bus full of people. He was knowledgeable and funny. The tour was from 8:40-3. We stopped by 3 beaches and I didn’t feel rushed. I highly recommended this tour. Let me know if you have any questions.
  6. Irie Tours informed me that the west beach hoping tour starts at 9 and will return at 2:30 to 3. It’s too close for my comfort so we’ll choose the 3-4 hours tour instead. They said that they would accept either cash for credit cards at the end of the tour. Hope this helps.
  7. I’m in same situation as some of us here. I’m more interested in the 6 hour tour but also concerned about our ship being in port for 8 hours, from 8-4. Curacao is our last stop, so we’ll have to fly back to Fort Lauderdale should we miss our ship 😪. I just emailed Irie tour to enquire more about the timing. I’ll update when I hear back from them. There’s an ongoing review in carnival board from can’twaituntilmarch and their ship was in port from 2:30-10-30 and they seemed to have made back to the ship with plenty of time to spare. The important part is that they went to the tour right after the ship docked.
  8. Thank you for taking the time to write your review. Beautiful pictures. Following.
  9. I’m so disappointed that Magic doesn’t have Tandoor any more 😪 It’s all about maximizing profits; replaced a free food option with a fee one 😔
  10. Thanks CJDePew for your reply. I booked Barcelo for the end of May, and we chose the day option. Hopefully, we’ll be able to find some chairs or find some shaded area. I’ll update when I’m back. Biris.
  11. Thank you JerseyGirlatHeart for your reply. I think we will go with Barcelo since it has a pool 🙂
  12. Hi, We are are group of eleven people ages 9-80. We will be in Aruba from 10AM-11:30PM. There are 4 kids age 9-16 who enjoy pools and don't care much for beaches, but they enjoy snorkeling. Having never been to Aruba, I'm not sure which of these 2 places my group will enjoy more. Is there a pool at De Palm island? Any suggestions is greatly appreciated. TIA
  13. I understand that food is subjective. My experience with Indian food on my recently cruise on the Epic was not as good or as variety as carnival cruises (Magic, Conquest, Valor etc...) If anyone is wondering, I found out that on the Epic, they had a Indian vegetarian section set up as buffet for lunch at La Cucina restaurant besides one or two dishes at the buffet.
  14. Thank you for sharing your experience. I just got back after staying in Barcelona for 4 nights, and there’s no way I could give a review such as yours. Your review is very useful for first timers, myself included as I plan to go back to Barcelona :D
