  1. We absolutely will, thanks Bob, (I knew you'd come through with a reply)
  2. Thank you ALL for your advice on Columbus Cove beach ! Now we're REALLY looking forward to trying it as an alternative to Nellies beach.
  3. Fellow cruisers, is there a sight anywhere that will say what attractions are free on the island and which are not? I just downloaded a map of the island and the attractions. I realize those that aren't free that the sign and sail card will take care of it. 🙂 Thank you advance to those who reply.
  4. Bob, thank you again, how far down from Nellie's is it, is it on the same side ? Would you suggest taking the tram, we utilized it going to Nellie's.
  5. Fellow cruisers, can anyone provide us with any information about Columbus Cove beach. As many times as we've been to Labadee and gone to Nellie's beach we just recently heard about Columbus Cove. Is it comparable, or better than Nellie's? Do they have lounge chairs and shade trees as well? Thanks in advance to those who reply.
  6. Only a suggestion, BUT from a previous terrible and frightening experience on the Anthem out of Bayonne in late January travelling in the North Atlantic about five years ago, I for one wouldn't recommend it. The North Atlantic shows no mercy to any size cruise ships in the Winter months. And on the return to Bayonne the voyage turned into an "extra sea day" due to weather conditions. We needed to dig our vehicle out from the motel we left it at from NJ getting hit with a "super storm". Sure, there's the parking garage at the Terminal to use but how could we pass up the free parking at the motel and free transportation to the pier. Just this poster's opinion, go easy now. I know there are a lot of posters that this wouldn't bother them, as just being on an adventure with waves hitting deck 11.
  7. Okey-doke thanks for your reply stevea36. I didn't see an oasis Class ship doing a replacement for that date and itinerary.
  8. Anyone already booked and received word of an itinerary change or try to book that date for the 7 night, Eastern and Perfect Day itinerary? That itinerary looked decent but I now I don't see any replacement. Thanks in advance to any replies.
  9. To date thanks to everyone replying to my question. We've done few Celebrity cruises and wasn't sure if there was anything in the line of The Quest. granted, Celebrity is a little more upscale. Yeah we can do without the belly flop contest, and some of the RCI's audience / stage participation shows. Oh well, we're not sailing till October 2020. (Yes, davekathy, i am a drummer, DW Jazz Series 4 piece kit, Special Selection Zildjian's picked at the factory an hour from here, play professionally. Cool that's great, another fellow drummer as well!)
  10. So what's there to do for the "middle age" folks to do in the evening? Be careful with your answers now...😂
  11. I'll say ! thanks for the bad news davekathy...Hope that 'lights out' wont be 10:00pm ...
  12. As a seasoned cruiser on Royal most often enjoying The Quest that's held towards the end of the cruise on most if not all of their ships, brings to mind a question asking that if a similar type event is held on Celebrity ships. Thanks in advance to those who reply.
  13. Perhaps I might have missed the thread, but was there anything posted about the effects of hurricane Dorian at CocoCay or did it spare that location? Thanks in advance to all who reply.
  14. And so aren't we, it's so repetitive...and now all those 3 and 4 nighters designed with CocoCay in mind...ugh... I'm sure its a good stop but when they positioned "Indy" there as well doing the same when they could have put it to better use with all the attractions that are now standard on the 'bigger ships"...
