    I am super excited about the official announcement over the weekend!I know we all knew it was getting revamped but now we know what the revamo entails.  https://www.royalcaribbeanblog.com/2018/11/01/navigator-of-the-seas-will-get-new-water-slides-restaurants-and-experiences-major-2019 .   Only worried about 1 thing. My little man is only 48 inches right now wondering if the slides will have high restrictions :(. Hope not :( ... Either way super exciting stuff.

    Hi Kathy. You can use the beverage credit at any of the restaurants. If you look at the bar picture that is where the grill is located and they do have covered seating there along with fans going where you can eat at as well

    Not crowded at all considering we had 5 ships in port that day. No issue finding a chair at the beach or seat at the open air bar and grill

    @BugsyCruiser thank you so much for posting these pics! Based on @Matt recommendations and you, this is what I'm doing for my January cruise. It looks so very beautiful! This hotel has been around for many many years, I can see that they've really kept it up, it used to be a Sheraton, maybe once Hilton bought it. So exited! Thank you!!!

    Hello friends! 
    I'm here to provide you with a review of my beach day at the British Colonial Hilton in Nassau! This came highly recommended from Matt on several of his Periscope broadcasts so I figured our RC Periscopers Super Bowl group cruise aboard Enchantment would be the perfect opportunity to try it out! 
    This beach day is available from Resortforaday and is 79 dollars with a 17 dollar deposit paid up front and the rest payable when you check in at the hotel(no cash accepted, credit or debit card only). It's a late start tonight so I'll add more tomorrow.We actually arrived in Nassau a day early at 5 pm due to Coco Cay being cancelled, a too frequent occurence lately unfortunately. I was able to see the hotel from the ship as we were docking and was impressed right off the bat at how pristine the beach looked. This was definitely a good indication of how this beach day would go the next day 
     
    In this photo you can see the hotel and the beach just to the left of the cranes.

    Here are some pictures of the hotel grounds and also you can see how close the ships are. The water and beach are absolutely gorgeous. Another plus is the pool is heated so no "ice box" feel when you get into the water!

    Getting to the hotel is super easy and only about a ten minute walk. Once you leave the port area head west all the way till the road turns left. You'll see a Senor Frogs right at that corner. Turn left and go about 3 blocks and you're at the Hilton. Check in was easy... I'll go over the details a little later today. The hotel lobby is beautiful as you'll see in these pictures:

    At check in you will pay the balance owed for the beach day with either a credit or debit card. You'll receive a wristband so the staff will know your a beach day guest for the day. You will also receive your voucher for the food and beverage credit and for beach towels. It is not necessary to bring towels from the ship.... another plus.
    Once outside and when you pick your chairs where you would like to sit at the beach you'll meet your server. He or she will take your food and beverage credit and keep track of your purchases. Once you go over that 40, an additional amount spent is payable with a credit card or cash but you won't pay till your ready to head back to the ship and close out your bill. At the east end of the pool is where you would turn in your voucher for up to two beach towels.

    BugsyCruiser got a reaction from MikeK in October 15 Allure of the Seas - Itinerary Change   
    My allure sailing from November 2013 had an issue with one of the azipods but our itinerary was not affected (Western Caribbean). It happens.... Isn't the first time, won't be the last. Like KLA said sure it's disappointing at first but at least the sailings haven't been cancelled.
     
    One thing I learned is that when it comes to cruises I never book with my heart set on I have to go to this port. Things can happen and the itinerary gets changed and that's when you get the people who say my cruise has been ruined because I wanted to go to this island

    BugsyCruiser got a reaction from Jerel in Allure and symphony head to Miami   
    I thought that too but then read on Facebook that they are doing major renovations to terminal 25, which is heavily used by Celebrity. In my humble opinion it would make more sense especially with Edge doing Sunday departures to have her sail from the best terminal at Port Everglades which is 18

    BugsyCruiser got a reaction from Wilson in Liberty of the Seas, a review of my first time ever on Freedom Class   
    Hello everyone!
     
    I am currently 40 minutes from landing at Chicago Midway so I thought I would start my review of my Liberty cruise! I will break this down into sections as to not try and cram everything in one post, and I will even include my thoughts on being Galveston and sailing from there for the first time ever.
     
    Overall I enjoyed Liberty very much. There are a few minor complaints that I will get to but they didn't even come close to impacting my enjoyment of the cruise. The voom issue is a very sore subject with me.... more on that later.
     
    And before anyone asks, I ate at Sabor four times. That pretty much says it all, but I will include a full review of the restaurant :)
     
    I will try to start up the first part of the review later this evening or tomorrow for sure. The first part will be Galveston and sailing from there.
     
    Stay tuned.... :D

    BugsyCruiser got a reaction from EmersonNZ in Casino: Has anyone won on their cruises?   
    I almost always stick to slots. I do not play the max but play in the middle.... in other words if the minimum is 30 credits say on a 30 line slot machine and the max is 180, I'll play 90. I never play on anything higher than a 25 cent machine.
     
    I have never hit the big one but this last cruise aboard Liberty I came out 350 dollars ahead.
