  1. Hi there everyone. I'll be visiting CocoCay in Nov 2019. Here are my questions: I saw on a YouTube vlog that there was an issue with the birds being a nuisance in the seating areas to eat. Is this still the case? Can I use the soda package on the island? If so, will I have to bring the souvenir cup with me, or will there be something on my SeaPass card indicating that I have the package? Would it be possible to deploy this strategy during my visit to the island 1. Get off the ship early to spend time on the island before it gets crowded. 2. Then, once the big crowds come, I'd like to retreat to the ship. 3. When people start to call it a day, I want to get back off to finish my fun on the island. Thanks. William
  2. To ChrisK2793. I had just logged on to ask about Wifi calling, and you answered my question. Thanks.
  3. Sounds to me like Skippers Grill is the better lunch option, with reference to the bird situation.
  4. Thanks. I would've thoroughly researched this ship before I board. From what you said, it sounds like the only value is an alternative time-killer activity if you're not into the bar scene, and perhaps strike up a conversation with a like-minded person(s).
  5. Hello there, I was reading through a recent Cruise Compass as part of my research for my upcoming cruise on Mariner. I saw on Embarkation Day at about 2pm a presentation called "Get to Know the (ship name)". Has anyone ever been to this presentation for your sailing? What is covered during this presentation? Thanks. William
  6. I appreciate your suggestion. My concern is not wanting to encounter the highly demanding locals trying to sell me stuff, along with those who are trying to sell illegal substances. How badly were you harassed?
  7. Interesting. Glad to hear that you found a way for each of you to do what you want.
  8. Hello everyone, I will be going on Mariner in November 2019. First time on RCCL, first time going solo. My question is really for those who have cruised solo before. Did you feel limited in terms of your excursion options in general, or did it depend on the stop? For my cruise, Cococay is taken care of, but Nassau is the only stop where I'd have to do an excursion. My thought is that any excursion that involves being in the water or underwater is out of the question, such as Snuba, the BOSS or SUBs (underwater scooters). The tour provider wants to sell you these very expensive photo packages, and I don’t want to spend that kind of money. Plus, you have to operate in a “buddy” system for these types of excursions, and since I won’t know anybody else there going in, that's not going to work! As for other options, I wouldn’t want to do the adrenaline-inducing excursions because I’m not trying to get maimed or killed during my vacation. Thanks in advance for any feedback or suggestions. William
  9. Hi Joanne & David, I've only done one cruise, on a different cruise line. I am booked for Mariner in November 2019. Just here to do my proper research. I'll be sure to share my experience afterwards.
  10. That would be correct. Nice to meet you.
  11. Hello. My name is Will. I'm originally from Chicago, but now live in Florida. My travel goals are to visit all 50 states, mixed in with cruises. What does fascinate me about cruising is that some people meet other passengers randomly in various settings and that there is an instant connection. Those lucky few wind up making lifelong friendships as a result. I don't expect it to happen for me, because I'm introverted with a capital I.
