    MelKaps got a reaction from Zipitidoda in Port Everglades Hotel Options   
    I stayed at the Best Western Fort Lauderdale Airport/Cruise Port a couple of times. It has a free shuttle to the hotel from the airport and free continental breakfast. There is a shopping center across the street with a Winn Dixie, liquor store, restaurants, and a few other stores (perfect for last minute things).
    It's about a 12 minute drive to the port. However, they charge approx $15 per person for a shuttle to the port that doesn't leave until after 10AM. We never had a problem with lyft taking us to the port.

    Update: My sailing still exists and I paid my deposit. However, apparently it sold out in 2 days because I have not seen it listed on the website since I placed a hold. It just seems odd to me.

    I noticed this about my sailing on October 10, 2021 (TA has hold so didn’t pay deposit yet). I reached out to Royal via social media and they said nothing has been changed. And when I mentioned it is no longer on the website, they said give it a day or 2...

    MelKaps reacted to tiny blonde in Who would ever let go of your child, even if there was no glass there?   
    Excellent point! That explains why the attorney for the grandfather is not Mr. Winkelman. Defense attorneys will (hopefully) call witnesses to ask if anyone heard the grandfather yell, "I thought there was glass!" There were other people there, they would have heard it. If no one heard it, the defense's case will be weakened.
    I think Grandpa goofed, and I'm sure he's suffering. I've known two parents who in separate incidents accidentally backed the car over their child and killed them, and were forever afterward known for that, and I'm sure seldom knew a happy day for the rest of their lives. When my daughter was killed by a drunk driver, the driver was charged by the state for homicide, and frankly it didn't matter to me at all. All that mattered was that my daughter was gone, and over thirty years later that's still all that matters.

    MelKaps got a reaction from ChrisK2793 in Turtle Bay Sail & Snorkel Adventure - Charlotte Amelie   
    I did this excursion last month. To be honest, we didn't enjoy it and I would pass on this one.
    Once in the water, we felt very crowded and didn't have room to swim. Everyone was kicking each other and I felt unsafe. Plus, there were 3 other boats filled with passengers entering the water as well. There also wasn't much to see in the water, very few fish and dead coral. They provided noodles if you wanted extra flotation in the water, but quickly ran out.
    Even the boat ride wasn't too exciting. We thought it would have more of a pirate ship feel, but it was just men operating a boat with a sail. You also couldn't walk around since the boat was stuffed with people and the snorkeling equipment took up a lot of space.
    I am typically not a negative person when it comes to cruising and excursions, but we have done other snorkeling and catamaran excursions in the past, and they were all far superior to this one. We left this one rather disappointed and wish we chose something else.

    RCCL usually has Challah and Wine on Friday night for Shabbat on Fridays for Jewish people. I have attended these myself. They are always self-led. I’m pretty sure the same would be true of any Sunday Mass services as well.
