    Ha! I'm not opposed to it either. We're young parents though, so honestly any vacation where we can get a few days to ourselves sounds pretty heavenly.

    Let me rephrase: we're parents of young children. We're not particularly young, which I feel at a physical level most mornings, haha.

    Possibly because there is no dock in Georgetown?   (It's a tender port)  ???

    LOL!  "
    "The MSC Meraviglia from MSC Cruises arrived in Ocho Rios, Jamaica, from Miami on Tuesday morning. After the ship’s command reported one case of influenza onboard, Jamaican authorities, concerned that the man might have the coronavirus, said no one could disembark. The ship left Ocho Rios for its next port of call, Georgetown, Cayman Islands, after waiting to be cleared for nearly four hours.
    The ship was expected to dock in Georgetown on Wednesday morning, but the Caymanian Ministry of Health and Public Health Department said on Tuesday night that it could not do so".

    Ports are being very careful it seems, even in the Caribbean.  https://www.nytimes.com/2020/02/25/travel/cruise-ship-corona.html

    YES! We love heading AFT for a little peace and quiet, and plenty of chairs! When we want to be closer to the fun, usually the deck above pool (jogging track) has some available chairs.

    $30?! I pay $1-2 per bag. So unless you are travelling with the Brady Bunch, you should be paying $5-$10 on embarkation day and then again on disembarkation day.
    I'm telling you, best money I spend!

    I just booked.  Got them both for $1300 total (which is still high), but the bonus is that I am able to fly out of my home city, where as all other flights of decent price were requiring us to drive 3 hours to the hub.  So, won't have to leave my car nor pay for gas.  I grabbed them, because I don't think they will decrease.

    Uber (and Lyft) have had a checkered history in SJ.  For a good while, they were outright banned from the airport and port.  Union issues.  Recently, they have begun servicing the airport and port but I think it’s still tenuous.  If you want to be sure to have a dependable ride, I would plan on using a taxi and see how the ride share looks in real time.

    10am Flight is doable. Just tdo self-debarkation and you'll be fine. I did it.

    No, if you have prepaid these, they are paid.  You will not be charged again.

    It shouldn't appear on your Sea Pass account. But I always bring a copy of my invoices just in case their system isn't showing correctly.

    Lovestotravel reacted to ChessE4 in Another Newbie question! (Re: OBC)   
    I have specific experience with this.  Normally, if you convert points to OBC a couple of weeks before your cruise, it will be available on the ship.  I normally convert before then, but I must call the toll free number to make the OBC accessible to Cruise Planner.   Alternatively, call the awards center initially (instead of converting points online), and tell them you want the OBC for immediate purchases.  They have told me the conversion would go through in a few days.   I find I like using my Royal CC for Cruise Planner purchases so I get double points, and then I can use the OBC on the ship.  But I have also used some for Cruise Planner.  Have a great trip!

    Thanks all!  You have been very helpful.  And yes, @DublinFC, that is our experience.  Our TA added our flights, and we have until our final payment to pay them off.  I am going to ask her to run the rates one more time before we finally pay and lock in those flights.  She said that was an option.  Our flights are not cheap going in to San Juan, so would love to get them down a little.

    I'd like to add that another advantage of taxi service in San Juan is the flat rate price from zone to zone. (+bags).  I found this helpful for our last two cruises.
