@bige2020....did your friends get the balcony room? Henry is great! I always book with him. He will always try n get you good deals and rates.

@ruttandrea thanks yet again you come to the rescue.

ruttandrea   Nov 04, 2016 - 8:20 pm

@bige2020....You just either walk or take taxi to Junkanoo beach. The beach is free....they have all sorts of specials. If you drink beer, they have a special of beach chairs, umbrellas, and beer for cheap....i think it was $20. The special I like is unlimited drinks for $30. Theres a website about it. I will try n post the pictures of specials on my page on here.

bige2020   Nov 04, 2016 - 3:41 pm

Bet now thats what im talking about. Let me know where you book that at or do you just go down the beach?

ruttandrea   Nov 04, 2016 - 3:34 pm

We went to Atlantis waterpark last year....way overpriced. They have a website where I paid for and printed our tickets. We paid 150 pp....the excursion was 189 pp. The excursion included lunch. The hotel was not real nice....you have to walk thru it to get to the waterpark. Were gonna have fun at Junkanoo....n have unlimited drinks for cheap❀they have jet ski rentals too

bige2020   Nov 04, 2016 - 3:09 pm

Im trying to finalize excursions for the vista Nov 27th cruise. I've been to Nassau 3x's but never Atlantis, and now it cost so probably not this time either. What else is there besides the beach? Because the shopping is overpriced.

I found their website, they do have chairs and umbrellas, but limited....for a fee. You can purchase alcohol, chairs, n umbrella....all together cheap...lol

We've actually been to Nassau about 4x already. We stayed at Atlantis for a week. We were just there in June and didn't even get off the ship.

paulam1122   Nov 04, 2016 - 6:53 am

If you want luxury Atlantis/ excursion is what you should do. This isn't an extravagant beach but I enjoyed myself

paulam1122   Nov 04, 2016 - 6:47 am

From what I remember def no chairs we brought towels, no umbrellas & I don't remember seeing bathrooms either but there was a lot of construction going on when I went so things could have changed. It was a modest beach nothing extravagant but nice we went to the beach then senior frogs afterwards.

det1969   Nov 04, 2016 - 6:44 am

Does this beach have any amenities? chairs, umbrellas, bathrooms, etc...

We normally stay at the Holiday Inn Express before cruising and Circa 39 after a cruise. This year, since we will be flying on what is the busiest air travel dates, we may need to fly in on Thanksgiving to get a decent air price. With that said, we will be staying at Circa 39 before we cruise. Wonderful hotel with 1/2 block to beach and 5 min ride to Ocean Drive. My TA gets me great rates

In addition, Carnival requests that married women bring a marriage certificate if the names on the birth certificate and DL do not match

Last year my husband and I stayed at the Deauville Beach Resort. It is a nice moderate hotel on the beach. The price is not bad for a one night stay. It is located at 6701 Collins Ave.,Miami Beach, FL. Take a look when you get a change.

Frances2013   Apr 14, 2016 - 7:06 am

Yes I have booked at Holiday Inn Express near the part and four pointe Sheraton miami beach. Can't make up my mind. I live down south and hotels start getting sold out about 5 months before sailing 😊

My husband and I have. We plan to be in Miami that Saturday. We are looking to stay either in Miami Beach or South Beach we don't want to be to far from the port. I am trying to find if any of the ports have any jet skiing. I could not find any. So we are thinking of renting some in Miami.

Ok thank you for the information. I have my original birth certificate and drivers license. I just wanted to be sure that they will take them. I read somewhere that you had to have a passport or they won't let you board the ship. Thanks for clearing that up.

Deck Hand

  Apr 10, 2016 - 7:54 pm

Just remember if you or your companions miss the ship or get sick in another country you won't be allowed to get right on a plane & fly home or to the next port. I'm not even sure what the procedure is or how long it takes to verify citizenship & be allowed to fly.

asdoubleu   Apr 10, 2016 - 6:19 pm

You do not, birth certificate and drivers license will suffice.

Don't forget that cheers also includes any drinks (not souvenir glasses), up to $50 is included as well as any coffees, milkshakes, red bull type drinks, and bottle water. It definitely worth it! And the non alcoholic drinks don't count towards your 15! Bonus!! I've always wanted to try a speciality coffee but thought why should I pay when coffee is free everywhere else on the ship... And now I c

In the cheers program it includes sodas and mixers as well but thats what I think about no drinking and driving just my designated walker lol lol

Thank you so much Laferra

Very helpful Laferra, I think the cheers package is a good buy, I don't drink much but when I know can and don't have to worry about driving I will be able to enjoy and try new drinks. I'm just so excited and can't wait for November to get here.

so far you have gotten good advise..what I do is sit down and figure out how I'm going to spend so I know I always get the pics that they take when you board and the pics at each port..the most you will pay is $21.99 then I factor in that pics for Captains night as well as pics for fine dining if I choose to buy them which usually is around 6 not including the pics I mentioned before..I drink more than usual on vacation so the drinks are normally over $10 but if you want the souvenir cups they run at least $12 I think haven't bought one in awhile thats why I'm factoring in the cheers program thats $49.50 a day but of coarse anyone in your cabin 21yrs and up has to purchase the program..I love to bring back the White Hennessey because you can't get it in the states so its popular so I allot $99 for 3 bottles but they are $45.99 a piece..they have wonderful specials if you like to bring other alcohols back so I allot another $100 just in case..last yr I paid $99 for 2 bottles of Ciroc and 2 bottles of Grey Goose..I know this cruise will have a movie theater which is $12.50 so I will calculate how many movies I plan to go to..also I always hit up the $10 watch sale makes great gifts but its other things you can purchase as well..these things are just for my spending on the ship but thats why I use this time to go ahead and purchase cruise cash..even though you have to spend what you put on your accout with it it wirks for me so that I can concentrate on my spending money for ports..hope this helped as well

Thank you both very much..that gives me a very good range of fun then. I'm excited and hate having to wait until November.

I agree with adding up what you'll need for excursions and additional tipping if you decide to do that. We also include money to taste the local goods of where we port. Lastly, if we need cab fare we also factor that in. I've never carried more than $500 in cash even for a 9 day cruise.

What excursions are you looking into? I may do Blue Lagoon in Nassau if we don't do it this June off the Norwegian Escape. I haven't looked into any of the other stops.

Same here. Booked for the ship, not the itinerary. But we will most likely do excursions at all 3 ports to get a different feel
