  1. Welcome crushing with wheels. I have not been on carnival in a number of years either really looking forward to this new ship.
  2. Although I have been on a lot of cruise my next one on Anthem of the Seas will be my first on Royal Caribbean. Really looking forward to the next adventure but have questions as to booking items. . I have prepurchased a two dinner package. I was able to book Chops, but not the Italian restaurant. When can I book that or do I have to wait until I am onboard? . When can I book entertainment? . when can I book for the sky diving simulator and the 270 thing? .finally when can I finish our registration and get final docs? thanks so much. Lydia of Ohio
  3. We stayed here at the Hampton Inn Brickell in downtown Miami. It was reasonable and you get a suite. Walking distance to a great Cuban restaurant and a Publix where we go some wine to take onboard. Normally stay in Ft Lauderdale but wanted to experience Miami for a change. It was a nice change. Hampton Inn & Suites Miami/Brickell-Downtown 50 SW 12th Street, Miami, FL 33130 T: 1 305-377-9400
  4. Add me to the group. This will be my 23rd cruise. Haven’t been on Carnival for awhile and really looking forward to being back on a Fun Ship. Booked a spa balcony to take advantage of the new facility. I am from Ohio and my travel Buddy is from Indiana. Can’t wait, new ship and new port to depart from!
  5. JB thanks so much for your assistance. To make things simpler I had a brain storm and went in to the Royal Caribbean website and made s mock booking for airfare. Nie I can just mimic what times they would recommend which shows a 14:05 as their earliest recommendation. But thanks so much for the help!
  6. Good day, Need your advice. Sailing next July on Royal Caribbean Anthem of the Seas. Debarking on Sunday July 19th and will roll our own luggage off the ship. Will grab a cab and then take the National Express Bus back to either T5 or T2/T3. Hoping to take the 8:00 bus. National Bus states to allow 3 hours for bus and then grab your flight. That would mean. 11:00 flight or later. Do you feel that is realistic or should we shoot for flights after say noon or 13:00?? I appreciate your input. We will be flying back to the US. Lydia
  7. Funny you should post this. Since my original posting have done more research and we are booking same side trip and same your company. Spain Day Tours have gotten good reviews and the cathedral looks fantastic.
  8. Would like to do a beach. Do you happen to know which one you are thinking of. Playa El Arbeyal looks to be 24 minutes from the pier. San Lorenzo looks very nice but over an hour away. Thanks.
  9. Good morning, will be cruising next year and would love to have some input and suggestions on the following two ports. I have looked on Rick Steve’s and Travel Advisor and there isn’t a lot of info other than the basics. If you have traveled here what did you do, what did you like, etc. thanks loads. Lydia . Gjion .

  10. Thank you Bob. Booked Premier Inn I do wish they had an email contact but phone only.
  11. Alaskan I had not noticed that hotel. Looks like it fits for us and might be a great possibility. Thank you. Have you stayed at the Premier Inn Victoria?
  12. Folks, thanks for the input. Yes I am watching the expenses as for a hotel as long as it has the basics, clean with friendly staff I am set. Size of room not an issue as we will be going on a cruise after a couple days in London so that room will undoubtedly be smaller. The info on “air con” was helpful....although at first blush when air con when mentioned I could only thing if the Nick Cage film, haha. i do like being so close to Victoria train station and tube station. But as a backup I have also booked the Doubletree Victoria at 2 Bridge place, also right at the station. A bit more money but not much charm more modern. Anyone here have any input in this hotel? thanks again. Lydia ps for those if you living in London I do hope it cools down a bit for all of you.
  13. Bob++ thank you the restaurant advice. Looked at their website made me hungry already!
  14. Good morning, I have booked the Beverly hotel in Westminster Due to its proximity to Victoria station in the general area. Will be traveling to London next July and I have verified that they have air-conditioning. Have any of you stayed here or recommend it? Just looking for your input as to location and the facility. Thanks so much.
