We eat when we first get on the ship! We usually are able to get into our room not too long after we finish lunch. Rooms are open no later than 1:30.
We are old, we have our medications always with us. Our door magnets, just because they fit nicely in my carryon, not because we need them before the luggage is delivered. We keep it as simple as we can.

We are not pool people, so the bathing suits may or may not come out later in the cruise for Rain Forest and/or hot tubs.

Never been to cozumel. was thinking of ruins/beach combo excursion. we are snorkeling in GC. Anyone done the ruins/beach combo before? Looking for advice.

Also looking for parking alternatives in Miami - I have heard Premier Parking is beyond horrible. Hoping to avoid the fees at the port. Any advice welcome.

Thanks in advance
Welcome aboard!! I can't help with the parking question. We did a tour of the ruins in Costa Maya and it was wonderful. We are doing the ruins in Cozumel this trip.

Come to the 3pm meet first day at Promenade Lounge. It will be an opportunity to put faces with these names and for the kids to meet other kids. There are several in the 13 and 10 age groups.

While I live in the midwest for quite a while, I was born and raised in the Philly area. Have a soft pretzel and Yeungling for me!
Number one priority is a Cheese Steak, then soft pretzels. I can get Yuengling here in Alabama. I will be bringing soft pretzels back home with me (I pack light so there is room in my suitcase). Used to bring Tastykakes back too, but can get them here too.

ok silly question...we have dined at Palo's on previous cruise and already have our dinner reservation for this cruise. But wondering if brunch is worth it? What makes it worth the extra? What kind of foods is on the menu?

Thanks in advanced

I did the brunch - it was good. Something different than the normal breakfast on the ship. There is a buffet and a menu to order from. I believe they include a glass of champagne (or maybe it was a mimosa)

The food was really very good. The atmosphere and service was amazing. I don't know that I need to do it every cruise. I look at it like a date, time to be alone with my hubs.

We prefer brunch to dinner at Palo. Buffet is wonderful. Seafood table, breads and cheeses table, antipasto type foods table, pastries table and dessert table. Things we would not usually have (such as caviar) and I love that the crab legs are split in half so no effort trying to dig that yummy meat out of there. After you eat the buffet things, they bring you pizza that is amazing! Try the goat cheese and grape pizza. I don't normally like goat cheese, but this is my favorite pizza ever, ever! I would pay for this brunch just to have that pizza! Then they bring you an entrée of your choice. Several choices of egg dishes, or a fish dish, or pasta - don't remember what other choices. You can have more than one entrée if you want. Then they encourage you to go back to the dessert buffet again! And, yes, a glass of champagne or mimosa. Service beyond excellent. The dessert buffet are small samples so you can try several. Highly recommend it. Plan on a couple of hours and pace yourself!

I'm on my phone right now but later I'll try to post a few pics from last year to give you an idea. Love Palo dinner, but would choose brunch over dinner if we had to. Fortunately we don't!

Mmmmm...Tastycakes... it's been to long.

I remember Gene Hart yelling "Score!! For a case of Tastycakes!" while watching Flyers games as a boy.

Sounds like we're having a Southeast PA reunion.

I miss watching the Flyers. All that is spoken in Alabama is Roll Tide and War Eagle. There is no other sport here, only college football! Don't cheer for either team.

There are soooo many things to try.

Good grief! I'm hungry!!!
