If you are talking about the onboard tips for servers, etc, they can be charged to your onboard account and then you pay for that account however you choose.... credit card, Disney cash cards, whatever

I just called them up and told them I'd like to request the specific rotation. They didn't guarantee anything, and it didn't show up on our reservation or anything, but we did get the one I requested.

Yes, we asked them to charge our tips to our room, which we paid for with a credit card. You could also just pay with cash if you preferred to do so, but it seems easiest to pay it all at once!

Wow, your servers sounded great. We will be onboard in a few weeks, did they mention how much longer they would be on the ship? Maybe I should ask for them! I will tell them you said hello!

Small question, what time did you arrive back from the Las Caletas tour? I am thinking of booking the 1030 tour, not sure if I will get back too late to make it to our dinner seating....

Wonderful TR, I really enjoyed reading it! I am trying to find out as much info as I can about the Wonder and what things there are to do on it, my DH and I are not going to the MR, but we are going on the Wonder to Alaska in June for our 5th Anniversary, so your report with all of the food and activities was super helpful! I'm glad you had an enjoyable trip, and thanks again for the spectacular report!

We were on the 7:30AM tour, and we were back probably around 2:30 I'd say. I don't remember exactly, but I do recall thinking that if I wanted to I'd have enough time to run across to Walmart or explore a little bit outside the port confines. If you have the early dinner seating, you may or may not make it in time, particularly since you are pretty much guaranteed to want a shower.

Sorry for the all ticky tack questions, but I take it you got to Las Caletas around 830ish, but lunch isnt till 1:30, do they have some snacks around to eat in the mean time, even a bannana or something? Water? Soda? That is a long time to go wihtout eating, especially when you are active.

Thanks for a great TR!

I don't mind at all. They said there were going to be tacos when we first got to the island, but I didn't see any (or anyone eating them), so I don't know what the deal was there. I have read of people getting tacos, so either we just completely missed them or something went wrong on our trip. Other than that, there are plenty of drinks. They have big barrels of bottled water on ice right on the beach and you can go to the bar for sodas, juices, or cocktails. They also sold coconuts after a little while, down on the beach. I can't remember how much they were, but I want to say $3. After you finished drinking the juice, they'd offer to cut it up for you, and then they'd sprinkle it with lime juice and chili powder. If you think you may need a snack, bring something prepackaged, and completely sealed (like a little box of cereal from the buffet), because they are incredibly strict about food coming into the country and if you attempt it you could be fined. Definitely no fruit and no dairy![/B]

Great Trip Report and thanks for posting all the Navigators! I just booked one of the last MR cruises in November and yours and a TR from December has really helped my out with my potential schedule for the days!

You mention this coconut snack and that you also enjoyed the Pirates night menu more than others. From what I saw from the Dec TR I'm reading it appears that the menu was heavy on the coconut. That's my main reason for wanting to go to Palo that night. I'm guessing that you like coconut and that could influence your liking of the Pirates Menu....just curious?

Ok, so I have the dumbest question ever. Look on google earth, there doesnt seem to be much around the port area in Cabo, just a big dirt lot. Our girls LOVE dress up, so we want to buy them some standard tourist junk, like sombreros and maracas, maybe a dress or something. I assume stuff like that is everywhere in Cabo?
