  1. Anthem of the Seas to Bermuda September 21 2019. 28 days to go!😃
  2. I buy it for convenience too. I'm not a big alcohol drinker maybe (1 or 2 a day). I like knowing that I can try different drinks without worrying about the price. I love trying different martinis! I do drink a lot of sparkling water (at least 6 16oz bottles a day) and regular bottled water. I also love my lattes in the morning and after dinner. My upcoming Anthem cruise I was able to get the package at $49 plus I had a $75 credit to use.
  3. I'm on the Sept 21 2019 Anthem cruise and the DBP just went up to $61 from $49. I'm glad I bought it at $49.
  4. My Sister & I went on the Dune Buggy tour in 2017. We loved it. The dune buggies carry 4 people and they do make you share if you only have 2 people. They are stick shift. You do drive through town then on the main road out of town (not crowded at all) to the other side of the island. The other side of the island is gorgeous. They stop for about 45 min. at a beach then back on the road. There is another beach stop back towards town for a longer period and you can snorkel, swim and get something to eat. On this tour they have one guide in his buggy/jeep at the front all the buggies one by one then the 2nd guide bring up the rear. Not sure about the child seats. We booked through RCCL because things can happen. We did a similar excursion with Carnival a few years before had a blast but our dune buggy broke down on the ride back to town (we had to ride back in the open jeep (fun) with one of the tour guides).

  6. OMG I'm going on the 5 day Bermuda cruise solo on the Anthem on 9/21-9/26. I cruised to Bermuda solo (my first solo trip) on the Celebrity Summit back in May 2018 and had a great time. It is a little weird at first eating solo in the MDR but the wait staff on the Summit bent of backwards for me. I'm kind of shy so travelling solo really made me come out of my shell. The funny thing is when other passengers hear you're solo they are in awe of you for doing so. I also spent a week at Grotto Bay this past April solo and loved it. I did have one advantage in that I have been traveling to Bermuda with family & friends for over 40 years so I know the island and didn't have to worry about that.
  7. The Deluxe Beverage package for my 9/21/19 Anthem sailing just went down to $49 plus I used my $75 OBC. I am happy 😃. Maybe it'll go down again maybe not.
  8. I yell that all the time. Even at people in the office building I work in (one woman will not go near the door if she sees me coming in the morning because I yelled at her). Not saying please & thank you is my biggest pet peeve.
  9. My first cruise was with my Dad & 2 sisters (I was 10 my sisters 9 & 8 ) in 1973 on the TSS Olympia out of New York to Bermuda (never made it there due to a bad storm that lasted days), St Thomas & Puerto Rico. I loved it! The ship was rocking & rolling all over the place. Both sisters were so seasick my Dad & I were fine. Me being a typical kid I was more annoyed about the pool not being open during the storm or a few days after because of really the rough seas. We would sit a the side of the pool & stare the pool guy down but nope he still wouldn't open that pool. The dinning room tables had lips on them so that the dishes wouldn't slide off. The waves were hitting the dinning room windows so cool. My one sister was sick for days and when we got to Puerto Rico she didn't want to get back on the ship. She still has nightmares about that cruise.
  10. Just a FYI the ITU World Triathlon is the weekend of April 27th & 28th https://bermuda.triathlon.org/
  11. We did fire back in November and loved it!!!! I was the first one in the group to go and the trust fall was hard. I finally closed my eyes and just told the guy to hook me up. Once that was done it was great
  12. If you are on Facebook join this group Bermuda Bound https://www.facebook.com/groups/886000204754846/?ref=group_header. They have a number of locals on the page that do all different types of tours and will customize them just for you and your schedule. This group is a wealth of information. Since it is your first time to the island and you are only there for 1 day I personally think this is they way to go. I think @JLMoran is also on the Bermuda Bound Facebook group. My family has spent many summers (a month to 2 months) in Bermuda back in the 70's & 80's (Dad's work sent him there very often) and still try to spend at least one week a year. We have rented houses, stayed with friends, stayed at resorts & have cruised. My next trip I will be at Grotto Bay on April 7th for a week & I'm looking to do Anthem in Sept or Oct 2019. You will love the island no matter what you do.
  13. We flew into Miami day of for our Nov 2018 Thanksgiving cruise on the Allure. My flight was nonstop from Philly and my sister's was nonstop from Atlanta. I got in around 11:15 & my sister around 12. We got our luggage, waited about 10 minutes for our Uber (not sure what the Uber cost my sister paid). We were on the ship by 1:00. I have always flown in the morning of for over 20 years and I always make sure that I have a backup plan and travel insurance.
  14. We went to that bakery too when we were there 2 weeks ago. The panini's were really good.
