Would appreciate help in Jacksonville for first timers :)
We are leaving in just a few days and my husband decides to start asking detailed questions NOW!
We are driving down and he is concerned with where we will be able to park. Is there a SAFE, yet cost efficient place to leave our car near port? We were quoted $21 a day to leave it at port.
What time will we be able to board? We've heard that the 4 pm departure is when we can start, but I also found a site that said boarding MAY be allowed by 2 pm. We'd like to get on as early as possible so we can discuss my food issues first.
Is calling from the ship REALLY $1.99 a minute? Our daughter is in a cast and chose to stay with her gparents, so we will be calling her daily. I don't mind the cost per minute, just afriad of hidden charges that will eat us alive
I can't wait for our trip, but I also can't wait to get our first cruise under our belts and not such newbies anymore!
Usually they are boarding by noon or so, but staterooms aren't ready til at least 1:00. You can still visit the buffet for lunch and explore the rest of the ship...
I would re-think making those daily phone calls, check your carrier and see what the charges are, they can run up to thousands if you are not careful...There is also the internet which is a lot less than calls...
