  1. We too have a grandchild that we are raising - we too are in our middle to late 60's. We started cruising with our grandson when he was 14 months old - it was a 17 day cruise. We got a 2 bedroom suite and there was plenty of room for him to run around the cabin. It was great - we could go back to the cabin and lay him down for a nap in the bedroom and my husband and I would take turns roaming around the ship while he was down. Having a suite also allowed us to have all of our meals in our cabin. He didn't sit very well in the dining room - we tried a few times, just didn't work at that age. He loved being around all the people and sights on the ship and in each of the ports. When we did the second cruise with him he was 26 months old and it was much easier. He was able to go in the toddler pool (if the ship has one) and he sat in Coastal Kitchen much better and we had all our meals there. This cruise was a 10 day and we had a Grand Suite and it gave us plenty of room. I know that people say that he won't remember it but I sure will and aren't my memories important too!!
  2. I have done it a few times and have ALWAYS had a great time.
  3. Thank you for your responses!
  4. I have never done a cruise where the first two days of the cruise is the first port. We don't leave the port until the following afternoon. I will be on the Ovation of the Seas next May. My question is - do we check in at normal time, lets say around noon, and then we can get off the ship immediately? If we stay out until the wee hours of the night, can get back on at anytime during the night? I hope someone can clarify this for me. Thanks in advance everyone!!
  5. I picked my seats when I made the reservation. I would go out to the airline you are flying and pick the seats you want. I could change mine on the Delta sight if I wanted to.
  6. I made my very first reservation with air2sea yesterday for my cruise in May. I did my research prior to calling them. Told the agent what flights I ended up with my flights and they are refundable and $125 less than the non-refundable AND payment not due until final cruise payment. This was awesome.
  7. We leave next month from this port on the Allure. Please post as much information regarding the new terminal as possible. Very interested in the parking at this new facility.
  8. The print is way to light!! I can hardly read it because the background is so bright and the print is so light. I will not strain my eyes. They need to make all of the responses MUCH MUCH DARKER!!!!!
  9. Having grown up during the cold war era - the thought of walking Red Square or going inside of the Kremlin is something I never thought I would see those sites. Besides, St. Petersburg was beautified for tourist where Moscow was the real thing. Just my opinion.
  10. We did 2 days and took the first day there and flew to Moscow using a ship excursion - what an amazing trip. The second day we hired a private tour guide through the ships excursions and was able to see everything we wanted to see including the museums (guide got us fast passes through the entrances of every place we went). I would do it again in a heart beat!!
  11. Excellent, we have a cruise on Nov. 25th. Was hoping to be able to park right at the terminal. Awesome!!
  12. Does anyone have an update as to when the new terminal will be opened? Going in late November and was hoping it would be open.
  13. Can you also order from Coastal Kitchen menu for room delivery?
  14. Does anyone know if the new terminal will be open by the end of November? Everything I have read says that it will open in the Fall. We usually stay at the Marriott Biscayne Bay.
