Yes, you should change it to the Intercontinental.  Bay view. 😉

@IslandBoundMama and @Sweety...Now I am really concerned about that Panoramic suite.  It's category VP that you both booked right?  Do we get suite benefits or not?  Please keep me posted.

And @IslandBoundMama your son at the window reminds me of me lol.  Hubby has quite a few pics of me staring out the window too.

I will definitely let you know.

Good morning! It’s FINALLY cruise day!!!! We woke up to a beautiful sunrise and five ships in port! One NCL, one MSC, two Carnival and of course...our beauty!!! 😍

We plan on catching our UberXL (too much luggage even though we tried to minimize) around 9:45ish.

I can’t wait to share pictures from onboard.  My husband’s medical issue that I vaguely mentioned at the start of this blog was an aggressive form of cancer. He had surgery for removal and is cancer free, but as you can imagine...it’s been a very stressful time for that and just other life reasons.  WE NEED THIS!!!!

When we sailed out of Terminal A in June we had the same problem (not being directed to the Suites elevator). Luckily we saw it ourselves or we would have missed the “short cut” up to the Suites waiting area.  Isn’t it gorgeous ?!

I think Miami is bad, in general, about directing suites guests to the proper waiting area.  The same thing happened to us the last time we sailed out of a Terminal G but luckily we knew better and went to the Suites waiting area on our own.

Shame on them!  They didn't direct us to the suites elevator either two weeks ago for Symphony but I just ignored them and followed signage and walked up to the elevator myself.  The lady who tried to send us up the main escalator followed us and tried to send us back.  I just told her we were suites and there was another lady at the elevator area who took one look at our sea pass card and said we were good to go.  But that should not have had to happen.

@IslandBoundMama...have a wonderful and well deserved trip.  Enjoy your family time!

That luggage tag makes me sad, we would have been neighbours this sailing.  We had 1804 booked for this sailing but we cancelled it because we chose the Anthem GC.

Yes, nobody seemed to care to look at our passes. They tried to direct us to the general waiting area and I had to ask where the suite waiting area was.

Oh no!!!! That would’ve been so much fun.  We could’ve had Lavendar Tonics together. 😔

We are onboard, had some food, registered little man for Ocean Adventure kids club and we are waiting for our room to be ready.  Oh...we met Super Mario as well...sitting in his private cabana.

I have a grouchy 9yo because he didn’t listen to his mama when I said wear your bathing suit onboard. Now he’s grouchy because he wants to swim and has to wait. 🤦‍♀️

Little guy got some swimming in and we have an hour until Muster. Sail away is 4:30 and that’s when the suite lounge opens too.  We have traditional dining at 5:30. It’s been raining off and on. No worries...we’re n vacation. 😉

We got our letter listing some of our suite benefits and it said others could be found online. I wish they were all listed in one place.

So exiting!  Glad to hear your little guy got a swim in before muster.

I wonder if they change the dining times from sailing to sailing?  We are 2 weeks after you, but our traditional dining time is listed as 6pm (mock booking and our invoice).

That must have been my confusion, we were 6pm dining also.
