So I guess the surprise is off. When I put in her name as the second guest, Carnival started email flooding her about her upcoming cruise. Oh well, I tried.
So does anyone have any recommendations for the following:
1) Affordable parking near the pier. We are driving in that morning so not looking for a hotel stay, just drive to the parking garage.
2) Options for things to do in port? We typically go out of NOLA so have favorites for most of those ports. Having never been to any of these we are at a loss. As an example we love Nachi in cozumel and that is usually where we go when there. We don't typically do excursions through the cruise line.
3) Is it the right time of year for a whale watching expedition? Have never done it and I hear December is when it usually starts to be good. Will the first few days in DEC be too early? Anyone have any experience in this regards?
