  1. Thanks MikeK! We will be bringing lots of sunscreen & applying it often! This is our 3rd cruise to the Caribbean, so we should be ok. Thanks for your concern!?
  2. Favorite place to swim, play in the sand, snorkel & explore in Labadee, that doesn't cost anything?
  3. HI all! We are Members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and we'll be sailing on Indy in Nov. As a World Wide Church we are studying the Bible (We use the King James Version). We thought it would be fun to invite anyone of ALL ages to join us in a 1 Hour Bible study/discussion on SUNDAY NOV. 10 while on board Independence of the seas! My Husband & I will be sailing with our 3 boys ages 6, 10, & 13. Let me know if you're interested, so I can plan accordingly. Here is a link to the lesson we will be studying https://www.churchofjesuschrist.org/study/manual/come-follow-me-for-individuals-and-families-new-testament-2019/43?lang=eng Happy Cruising! TracieT.
  4. We did snorkeling & Sting ray city a few years ago with our 7 & 10 yr olds. We loved it! We were able to pet & feed the stingrays! We decided to book with a 3rd party. We just got off the ship & there were TONS of people selling the same excursions for a fraction of the price! We paid $30 each & used a CC to pay. The excursion lasted 3-4 hrs & we had time to eat at Hard rock Cafe afterwards. If your 8 year old isn't a great swimmer I'd suggest a life vest. Our boat had them.
  5. Is there a way to call/text other passengers, on the same ship, WITHOUT buying a VOOM package? We like to totally unplug while on our cruises, but this is the first time cruising with a teenager!? We have Android phones. We will be on Independence of the seas on Nov.9, 2019!!!
  6. I went ahead & booked this for my family, however my 6 year old, who meets the age limit, will most likely NOT weigh 50 lbs by the time of our cruise. Do you think he will still be able to zipline & do the river float?
  7. I'm interested in this, too! We will be in Falmouth in Nov. 2019 on Indy, with our 3 boys ages 13, 10 & 6!!!
  8. Our experience , with Atlantis, was the exact opposite! However, we were there at the end of October which is their offseason. We NEVER waited in line for the slides or tubes. In fact, most of the time we were the only people on the slides!! The slides are Super fun & not your average water park slides. I have a friend that visited Nassau with her teenagers & they loved it, too. Atlantis also gives you something like 5 miles of beach to enjoy & no one is there bothering you to buy things. It really may depend on what time of year you're there and what activities your family wants to do that day. When is your cruise?
  9. We went to Nassau in Oct. 2017 and LOVED it!! We bought tickets to Atlantis on their website. Got off the ship & took a taxi to Atlantis! It was more beautiful & amazing than in the pictures! The slides & lazy river were SO fun and the beach was gorgeous! Our boys (5, 9 & 11 at the time) loved finding giant concha shells EVERYWHERE!! We walked through the aquarium & It was a perfect day! At the end of the day we were the last ones to board the ship around 8pm. Have fun, be smart & enjoy Nassau!
  10. I loved reading this blog! Great job! We will be sailing on Indy in Nov. 2019. We have been on Freedom before & loved it! Quick question, Did the king size bed have a pad/memory foam topper? Freedom did, but Enchantment did not. We will be in a cat 1R room (spacious Interior). I'm a little nervous because we've always had a OV or balcony, but for the amazing price we got, I think we'll survive! We have 3 boys and I am excited about the extra space.
  11. I 2nd Paradise Beach!!! We took our boys there (7&10) and we all LOVED it! They have a water park in the ocean (trampolines, slides etc.), snorkel gear, kayaks, paddle boards, hammocks, nice pool, bathrooms, food & drinks and even life guards!! It was one of our favorite ports and you can't beat the price!!
  12. We did ziplining in Costa Maya a few years ago. IT WAS A BLAST!!! We usually book with a 3rd party because its SO much cheaper. However, in Costa Maya the company will just use your card from the ship! So, you have to book through the ship regardless. The zipline park is a quick 5-10 minute shuttle ride from the port & is included.
