Sorry, I’ve only done a tour from Grand Turk. I’m so excited to go back and explore more of the island. Hope you find your answer

Just finished looking at Jack’s Shack website, looks amazing. You can pre-register for a free rum shot, which I find funny, but will probably do. If you’re not a shot taker could add a little extra to whatever drink you order!

Great! So looking forward to it!

It has been accurate for our last 3 cruises. The only way it may change is if another ship has a last minute itinerary change. But that would be unlikely as it is not Hurricane season.

Cool!

Yes, but still much less than what we would have paid to get a Balcony when we originally booked or even now.

Does anyone know how much the photos are ?

Did you have to pay?

So yesterday we got the upgrade email from Carnival and we took it. We gave up our 4J (inside cabin with a window overlooking the deck on 6) front of the ship for a Balcony on deck 7.

We’re all on the same cruise, can’t wait! I have seen others comment Atlantis being good for wheelchair guests.

We are sailing April the 8th through the 14th. The only one we want one for Atlantis . My husband will be in a wheelchair so I planned to ask at the guest services desk as soon as we get on about the best way to see it.

Welcome to the group! We are planning on a relaxing cruise like this too, only booked an excursion for Atlantis. I’m sorry I can’t advise on the Taxi, but I hear the beach at the port at Grand Turk is great, vs Amber Cove which isn’t really a beach, but still has the great pool.

This is our second cruise and our first where were are not booking an excursion. We are wanting to just do a lot of beach time and a little shopping as there isn't anything we really want to do that we can do, if that makes sense. We are wanting to go to Governers Beach in Grand Turk, I thought we would just hire a taxi to take us but I am worried about getting back to the ship. Has anyone done this before?

LizbethOregon

I checked our port days on cruisetimetables.com last night and the only day I see another ship in port with us is Nassau, one Disney ship. I had read that the our other ports can get crowded, so I thought I’d check. Does anyone know how accurate this site is?

LizbethOregon

Jan 18, 2018 - 8:27 pm

I always book with the cruise line except when we were in Alaska and Hawaii. Just like the security of them knowing where we are plus the guarantee to get you back to the ship.

Where do you prefer and have had the best luck booking your excursions this is our first time and would love to hear your input

Thank you LizbethOregon!! We are super excited!

Jan 16, 2018 - 10:55 am

So a group of us are going on the cruise in April we all want to make sure that we go on the same excursions together at the same time if we order them through our own rooms separately how do we guarantee we'll be together

http://m.shoreexcursioneer.com I have been on 5 cruises and have always booked through shore excursioneer. I have never had any problems. Take care.

LizbethOregon

Jan 15, 2018 - 12:44 pm

I hope you enjoy it! As you can see by profiles on here, most of us get hooked after the first time!

tes2

Jan 14, 2018 - 9:32 pm

Thank you! I think we’ll be safe then sorry and book through Carnival

LizbethOregon

Jan 14, 2018 - 8:22 pm

The shipmate app does not go through carnival. The carnival guarantee is to get you back on the ship no matter what, ie: the ship waits, or you get special transport to the ship. In countries you’re not familiar with, I do recommend booking through the ship, but I know lots of others do book elsewhere. I saw on some threads there are hotel rooms near Atlantis that include admission, so if you have a large group, you might check it out. Like book a room for 4 at comfort inn and get passes for 4. Sounded like an interesting way to go, and gives you somewhere to change and leave your things.

This is our first cruise and we are going with a few other couples...we’re trying to figure out what is the best way to book excursions? Through Carnival via phone or website or through the shipmate app? Carnival guarantees that we’ll be back before our ship is supposed to leave but does the shipmate app go through Carnival? Thanks in advance

LizbethOregon

Jan 13, 2018 - 9:25 pm

For security reasons? You actually enter it online on “manage my cruise” and never have to again. To me it’s just the easiest, but it also depends how much you think you’ll charge. If you drink but don’t buy drink package, it does go fast!

lhemingway9

Jan 13, 2018 - 9:09 pm

Thank you. I just get nervous about putting my card on file.

LizbethOregon

Jan 13, 2018 - 11:32 am

I commented yesterday but wasn’t sure if it saved.... you can use travelers check, cash or visa gift cards, but either way, for a 6 day cruise the hold is $200 (from carnival website). We did cash on our first cruise and found it a hassle, having to add more later, and having to go to guest services at the end to settle up, or cash out any remainder. That first cruise we also didn’t purchase a drink package, and now do. You can monitor your balance on board on the carnival hub app which is nice.

lhemingway9

Jan 12, 2018 - 6:51 pm

So this is our first cruise. What are your thoughts on spending on the boat? I don't really feel comfortable putting my ATM or credit card on file. What's the best way to go about this. Thank you

Chose Embassy Suites pre cruise, asked feedback on the Ft Lauderdale page and got great feedback! Our role call doesn’t appear very responsive yet, so you might try the general forums for questions like yours.

LizbethOregon

Hilton Garden Inn was reasonable price and has airport and cruise port shuttle. I chose them simply because I am familiar with them as opposed to the other similar price offerings in the area.

LizbethOregon

Jan 03, 2018 - 3:44 am

Used Uber in Reno last week and it’s great. Your cc does not go to the driver at all, and I don’t believe they take cash. You can see the drivers’ reviews, car type, etc before you even book.

Any decent hotels that are recommended near Lauderdale airport to stay after we get off the ship. Hard to find a later flight. They all seem to be early.

lhemingway9

Dec 27, 2017 - 9:14 am

That would be good to know

Anyone had problems with the ubers in Lauderdale?

Centerpoint68

Dec 26, 2017 - 9:24 pm

Anyone had trouble with the ubers in Lauderdale? I've heard some horror stories. I'm not real fond of having a credit card on file with them. Do they take cash?

LizbethOregon

Dec 26, 2017 - 12:40 pm

Are there 2 elegant nights on our itinerary? Sea day I presume is, does anyone know which other night will be?

Centerpoint68

Dec 26, 2017 - 4:01 am

Flying into Lauderdale in April and staying in Hollywood on the Broadwalk. They do not have shuttle to the port. Has anyone had problems with the ubers. I hear horror stories like charging you double fee your fee on your credit card or saying you damaged they're car so another fee shows up on your card at a later date. Also taking a longer route to get the dollars up....Just a few examples. I'm not a fan of having a card on file with them. Do they take cash?

My wife broke her leg in a car accident 2 weeks. So we rented a wheelchair for the cruise and we when to Atlantis and it is very wheelchair friendly. As for getting there not sure about a taxi. We booked a tour though the cruise ship and my wife had to hop on and off the bus on one leg. Maybe check with carnival.

Has anyone taken a taxis to Atlantis? Can they accommodate a wheelchair? And are they easy to find?

LizbethOregon

Nov 28, 2017 - 3:42 pm

In the past when we cruised from Ft Lauderdale on Celebrity we received substantial discount by booking hotel through cruise line, does carnival not offer this? Wanted to be sure I’m not just overlooking it!
