  1. Had to drop by to see her today. YouTuber hard at work... Dozens of crew waving to us from their balconies. Blogger still hard at work.
  2. So I am paying in full now, well @Sharla is for me in the hopes that she sails. Allure is big, she is sailing out of Florida (PC) and we are seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. If they cancel but I fear this less and less as the days go on, I am hopefully going to Lift & Shift as the price Sharla booked me was beyond amazing. But of course rather then that I respectfully request to sail, fingers crossed...anyone else on board this one? It's myself, my hubby and my 15 year old daughter. She is on the quiet side, nothing like me!!
  3. Yesterday I was out drinking some fab Charleston craft beer, when I met up with 2 ladies who work with Norwegian. After the "I'm loyal to Royal" and then the frowns, I told them that I was totally happy with Royal and have no desire to cruise any other line (of course, we all agreed on Carnival). They told me that I was missing out and that NCL was a great line and much cheaper than RC. When I mentioned that my next cruise was in 19 weeks, aka 01 Aug, they both agreed that "that sailing will never happen". They both suggested I re-book, regardless which line I re-up for. I said "why don't y'all just let me go grab a big stick and y'all can beat me to death?". I really need this cruise. One of them said that she would even offer me her "friends and family" discount on NCL, so I went over last night and tried to peruse their sight. It might as well have been another language, as I had no idea what I was doing. All I know is that I want to travel out of Port Canaveral, but there were only 5 cruises from there. What do y'all think? If you've been on Norwegian (Escape appears to be the only PC option), do you think it's a decent alternative? I'm not sure what kind of discount I'll get. I don't mind trying, but it better be awfully enticing to make me not take a Royal ship.
  4. @Matt & whomever else would be so kind to input please? I am interested in the automatic gratuity breakdown. I will pay 17.50 per day per person, how is that broken down? Head Server, Server, Assistant Server, Stateroom Host? I also surmise this is collected and shared with the "back of the ship" but this is a Thanksgiving (Holiday) sailing & believe cash would be a nicer option. When I dine landside even when using a credit card I always leave a cash gratuity and have been told time and time again the servers prefer this. I have no problem adding cash at the end to the automatic charge like other posters have offered, but I like to know the specifics. I appreciate your knowledge, thank you!
  5. I was wondering, would anyone mind sharing their embarkation day rituals? Is there something you like to do immediately as soon as you step on-board? Favorite place to be on the ship for sailing away? Should we do the 1430hrs introduction to the ship tour? We are a family of 3 to include a 13 year old daughter. Youth club registration? Oh, the safety drill I see we are at E4 location, does that take long? Life jackets required? Would love to hear some fun suggestions, thanks to everyone in advance! (We are in an OS so I believe that lounge may be an option.)
  6. Sorry if this should be under Ports, but a general question for cruises with stops in the USA, and for those of us who happen to be non US Citizens. I have never cruised on a ship that had an American port in the lineup, but in Nov I will be on Anthem, and was wondering what the procedures would be when docking in Port Canaveral. We are leaving from Cape Liberty, but do we have to go through "border control" to go ashore? Or are they more lax since we left a US port and will have had no foreign ports before this one? I realize they will not be as lax as most Caribbean countries, where people didn't even look at my face OR Id lol. Just wondering. Trying to determine what we will do in Port Canaveral, and was perhaps thinking of just getting off the ship and walking around... If it will be a long wait to get ashore, it might be a good day to use a spa credit and relax on the pool deck!
  7. Hi all Looking for somewhere to hang out when we get to PC the morning of our cruise, we drive over from Orlando and hoping to be there from 9/10am. Thanks. :-)
  8. It should be a fun and exciting day at Port Canaveral on Sunday 11/13. the Port Authority is holding a special celebration at Jetty Park from 3pm -6pm. I'll be there. I hope to see some of you crazy blog people there too! :)
  9. Hi, I'm new to the Forum - Sorry if this has been asked already but, how is the best way to get from MCO to Port Canaveral? My family and I will be cruising on the Freedom of the Seas in April for a 7 night Western Caribbean Cruise. My wife and I cruised twice before on RCCL (Navigator - 5/05 and 4/06 - yes, it's been a while!) but this will be the first cruise for my 6yr old son and 8yr old girl. This will be our first cruise out of Port Canaveral (cruised previously out of Miami), and have plans to fly in the night before to MCO, and will stay overnight at the Country Inn & Suites at Cape Canaveral. The hotel has a shuttle to the Port, but am debating on whether to hire a private limo (VIP Limo?), rent a car one-way (Hertz is right next door to our hotel), or rent a car for the week and leave it at the hotel. For the return leg, we fly out of MCO same day we get back into Port, but is an early afternoon flight (2:45p). Thoughts? Thanks for all the help in advance!
  10. has RCI or when will RCI announce the 2016 schedules. I'm most interested to find out if they will home port another ship at Port Canaveral since the new Terminal 1 just opened with RCI as the primary tenant. Thanks, Hunt
