Moon palace bride 09

Recommended Posts

Hi there! We booked for MP through a travel agent but so far we have gotten all the deals on the palace website - Like the $400 passport package - We get FREE tours to all the places that MP offers to go - there are like 6 boatrides/waterpark/shopping trips and everything - I bet if you ask your TA about it she/he would include it - that is what we did anyway!! Good Luck!

Betsey - I just came back from Moon Palace in November. Just an FYI on the passport with the trips. The trips, yes, they are free however, the only downside is that the trips put you in a situation that if you don't end up spending more money, you will find that you are left to hang for several hours. For example, we took the boat to Isla Mujeres. The boat was fun and they passed beer around. It was about a 45 minute ride. When you got to Isla Mujeres, they left you at Isla Mujeres Palace. There was nothing to do there but lay in hammocks and hang out at their very tiny pool. You could however spend a couple hundered dollars and go swimming with the dolphins and some other costly things to do. So, we hung around Isla Mujeres Palace for about 2 hours. Then the boat took us to another part of Isla Mujeres where the shops are. You are given a blue bracelet so you are completely attacked by the vendors. All in all it was ok, but I thought I was going to get way more out of this trip.

 

Then, I was so excited to go on the snorkeling trip. I did not end up going because a couple in our party had already gone and forwarned us that the snorkeling was only 45 minutes and then if you did not purchase the zip lining for $80 or other things to do, the boat (not a real catamaran) stayed docked in an area for 3 hours with nothing to do in site.

 

I later found out that everyone that gets the Passport is really "talked into" going on these trips because Apple, RCI, etc. all get commission if you go, because they end up selling you these other excusions.

 

So, I just wanted to let you know about this ahead of time. Just plan ahead and bring extra money with you on these excursions. I am sure the dolphin swimming and zip lining, etc. is a lot of fun, I just had not budgeted for the extra costs so I was a little disappointed. If you have any questions about Moon Palace or anything PM me. My sister and best friend got married there and I went to both weddings.

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
