  1. I’m curious about this one as well if you can share. I would like to see a show, but would also like to have our seats reserved if that is possible.
  2. Are these the beers at Playmakers? Thanks, we have been really curious about the craft beer choices onboard.
  3. Thanks! Awesome! Can’t wait to sail April 2020!
  4. We love NYC and especially eating in NYC. Here are some of our favorites: Buddakan- https://buddakannyc.com. It is expensive, but the food is so good we still talk about it. A sophisticated and very upscale experience. Ninja NYC- http://mobile.dudasite.com/site/ninjanewyork?url=http%3A%2F%2Fninjanewyork.com%2F&utm_referrer=#3031 this place is a super fun and unique experience. My boys (10 & 15) loved it. It is designed as a Japanese village and all of the servers are “Ninjas”, food is on fire, literally, they are sneaking and jumping out at you-it is super fun. If you take the family-just tell them you are going to an Japanese place-don’t give away the secret-they will be totally surprised. Here’s a pic of our experience:
  5. If you are going to the 9/11 museum, you need to get a reservation. The line for general tickets is usually VERY long. I would definitely recommend going; it is quite a moving experience. You can get tickets on-line and I think they are about $20/person. Also, you are going to NYC during the busiest time of year. Timed tickets to the museums (the Met, Natural History) would even be a must for me. The lines are outside to get in and at busy times could take 30 min to an hour to purchase tickets.
  6. I adore packing cubes! We went on a 2 week trip to Europe last year and we each had only a carry-on suitcase and a backpack. While I want to take all of the credit myself-it really is the work of the cubes. Mine our the compression kind with a zipper in the middle to make them a bit flatter. Totally recommend. These are the ones we have from Amazon: LeanTravel Compression Packing Cubes Luggage Organizers for Travel with Double Zipper - Set of 3 - Color Black https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07BFK15TW/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_GWg1Db8RXFG80
  7. I’m not there yet, but I’m always excited when I buy milk or eggs and the expiration date is close to our vacation date. 140 days for me-so quite a ways to go.
  8. Thank you so much for all of the pictures and information. My parents are on a canal cruise in January and I’ve been following along and helping them get ready for the trip. Can you tell me what your excursion would have been in Colon? They are trying to decide what to do. Thanks so much again-super interesting!
  9. I haven’t stayed in an Aft balcony before but we have 2 planned-this spring on Oasis and one in summer of 2021 on Rhapsody. I was super excited today because I got both corner Afts on the Rhapsody for our group. Thought about being side-by-side but the extra room on the balcony is totally worth the little walk down the hall to see each other.
  10. I’m not sure about Rome, but the ones for Venice are posted.
  11. I’m booking Rhapsody for a Greek Isle Cruise for June 2021 right now. I scored the wrap around Aft JS Suite balconies!
  12. Thanks, that makes me feel a bit better. We will probably get the internet as well-so maybe worth it-but it is good to know the tendering was not something to worry about.
  13. It was so much cheaper for us to fly into FLL as well. I’ve always wanted to go to South Beach, so we are staying there for the night. We also arrive around noon, so wanted something active for the kids to do all day. I’ve booked cars transport. We have 7 in our group-so I find multiple Uber’s just a pain. With all that being said-last time we stayed in Ft Lauderdale and it was no trouble getting to the port in the morning.
  14. We are looking to go on a Greek Isles Cruise in the Rhapsody next year out of Venice. I know that several of the ports we will visit will be tender ports. Does anyone have any experience with the Key and priority rendering?
  15. I visited Antigua several years ago and our guide kept discussing the earthquakes that had destroyed the city over and over again until the point that the capital was moved. After getting back to our high rise hotel in Guatemala City; the next day we experienced an Earthquake! No damage done, but there was quite a bit of sway from the top floors of the building. All I could think about for those briefs moments were the ruins we had just left. An experience not soon forgotten.
