  1. Thanks for confirming! 👍 Looking forward to our 4th sailing on the Equinox, this time in somehow new shape 🤩
  2. We will be onboard the Equinox in March for the 4 time - so new carpet, new mattress and new TV sounds promising 😁 Are show times stil 7/9pm?
  3. We most often book A2 and keep it as we don't like the location of the A1s on S-Class ships, even if it would be a "free" upgrade. On Edge we "used" the upgrade to A1 and on another occasion the C3 to C2 bump. As long as you like the location of the upgrade cabin, it can be a nice thing.
  4. Thanks for sharing. However, you should be careful when printing email to PDF as the links on the very bottom are included and functional and lead to your personal newsletter center to adjust preferences and also show your ATT.NET email address. Next time it might be worse that could happen than just canceling a newsletter for a secondary email address 😉
  5. As blue_water stated, the ferries are Smith's and Speedy's. You can find some additional information at http://www.bvivacation.com/transportation/BVI-Ferry-schedule-virgin-gorda-tortola-speedys-smith.php Speedy's seems to be up and running from what I read at the FB page: https://www.facebook.com/virgingorda.transport.speedys/
  6. Correct - if there is nothing named, you might not get the benefits from the experiences. So it seems only upgrade to YC get the (whole) experience.
  7. From what I know, yes - only if there are promotions they will not be added, but dining experience, sun deck, spa access is "included" in the room.
  8. Thank you. We will head to SC and depending on time and if our driver picks us up 😉 we will walk to LB. Guess both Patricia and Nigel as well as Tropical Fusion can call a "new" driver for us? Oh and is there any shade at SC/LB by palm trees etc.? Merry Xmas!
  9. Hi again! We have been to the Baths and liked it - it was still a bit crowded, so good decision to do this while only our ship was in port! In March 2020 we will visit Tortola again and now it will be time to head for Smuggler's Cove. Did anything change (to the better) regarding our Plan B (if taxi driver does not return to pick us up)? Signal strength for our cell phones, walking to Long Bay Beach to get a taxi etc.?
  10. I was facing the same question (Tortola diy vs. ship excursion). After checking ferry schedules, I found that departure and return times on ship's excursion was fitting better. When adding up all costs, the ship's excursion was only about 20% more expensive than DIY - so we decided to book through the ship (which usually does not happen). However, it seems to be very doable so if your time in port fits for the ferry, go for it!
  11. Hi all! We are visiting Nassau in March, but ship docks late (1pm). We would love to visit a nice, quiet beach and if you can snorkel nearby, that would be awesome. Been looking into day passes but they are really expensive, we don't need food&drinks and time before sunset is limited... so that would not be worth it. We are fine using public transportation to get to a less crowded beach... or maybe a 4-5 hours excursion (not through the ship) to a nearby island could be fun, too. Looking forward to some recommendations as my search here only brought up information regarding day passes. Maybe the best beaches all belong to Hotels 🙄 Thanks! UP
  12. Thx. So even if my upgrade bid for YC is not accepted, I will get drinks on the island with my package.
  13. That seems to be a problem as my TA told me the same, they are so difficult to get through!
  14. Are the shows the same as on Seaview (we have been on Seaview in the med 2018 and 2019 so we already know all of the shows and to be honest, we do not "need" to see them again).
  15. Me and others have been offered the upgrade bidding program on our last med cruise which was sold out aswell. It seems as it is an automatic process no matter if there is anything available. MSC say that you will be notified 48-72 hours before sailing date, but also read that some didn't receive any information until they arrived.
