  1. Thanks for the review! I haven’t sailed RC in many years. Maybe it’s time to try again.....
  2. Thanks so much! I have read so many wonderful reviews on this site that it makes me very happy that you enjoyed mine. Thanks again!
  3. Thank you so much for the kind comments...especially about my pony tail! LOL The long hair just doesn't work very well when we're on the go! This was my first review and I really enjoyed writing it. It sort of made the experience last just a little longer. I am now waiting until next year....and waiting.....and waiting..... LOL
  4. I hope you have a wonderful trip! I would love to do this itinerary again sometime. Do you have plans at any of the ports yet?
  5. We did Maho Beach and Flying Dutchman in January. It was awesome! I was VERY glad we booked through Carnival because it was very slow getting on the Flying Durchman. (I wrote a little more in depth and put photos on my Fascination review 01/27/2019). Flying Dutchman carries four people at a time. We were supposed to be finished by 2:30 ish and it was more like 4:30 when we took our turn. There were people on our cruise still behind us so none of us were going to be left behind. You’ll love the Flying Dutchman!
  6. Following along! I did this cruise in January and I’m enjoying reliving it! Thanks very much for your review!
  7. We did this a couple of years ago on Conquest. Well worth the cost of about 100. We went to the bridge, galley, engine control room, storage areas, theatre department, crew areas, etc. On the bridge you meet the captain and a photo is taken. It was so interesting and so worth the price! Michelle
  8. We LOVE Cozumel and it is our favorite port because we’ve done some awesome shore excursions there. I think our two favorites were running the Amazing Cozumel Race and sailing the Americas Cup Yacht. Loved them both! Michelle
  9. I just got off this same ship a week before you got on. Like you, I finished my review fairly quickly. Such a great cruise! I wish I had found the sea lion excursion in St Thomas because it sounds amazing! Thanks for doing this review. I’m enjoying following along! Michelle
  10. Has anyone recently visited Clifton Heritage Park to see Ocean Atlas underwater statue? How did you travel....taxi, rent a car or formal excursion? Is it doable if the ship is leaving at 5pm? Thanks so much! Michelle
  11. Thanks for reading and for your kind words. I had NO idea that Skull Island was called Little Saba. I’ll have to Google that. Thanks again!
  12. Thanks so much for your kind comments. I very much enjoyed writing it and was hoping it made people smile, just like other review have made me smile. I LOVE that you do the “pouting” picture, too! My husband is over here cracking up learning that we are not the only people who do that! The name of the piano player in the piano bar was Andy. I’m afraid I don’t remember his last name...I think it begins with an “H”. He was hysterical! There was a Latin band. They played in the Passage to India lounge several evenings. Unfortunately I only heard them briefly but what I heard was excellent. We got our S&S cards at check in. We probably got on board around 1:00, went immediately through check in and security and straight to our room. It was probably the fastest check in we’ve ever had. Thanks again!
  13. Thanks for reading it and I hope you gave a great cruise! If you do a review I’ll definitely be following along!
  14. That is so interesting that we were on the same sailing! We loved the itinerary and hope to do it again sometime. I loved the Flying Dutchman. Like you said, now we can say we’ve done it! I’ll remember your advice for alternatives to going straight to the airport the next time we’re there. To be honest, we were tired so sitting and reading wasn’t all bad. Thanks for reading my first attempt at a review!
