  1. Past hour
  2. With the new renovations done on the Independence, does it still have the Jade sushi section or is the only way to get sushi at izumi?

    Has anyone ever gifted a cruise?

    We just ordered custom t-shirts for our kids. There is a large picture of Symphony on it. Then we put the ship name and date. We'll be giving our kids the shirts soon. Can't wait to see their faces

    Which Ft. Lauderdale Hotel?

    We just stayed here. There is a bit of construction in the day (and strong smell in lobby) but it didn't bother us. The price was pretty good, room comfortable and short walk to Harbor Shops and restaurants as well across the street. We would have no issue staying again.
  5. Yeah that is a good point I forgot to mention. Has to be carry on only now

  7. Hi All, Urgent help please! Does anyone has any experience of getting the flight reimbursement due to cancellation of sailing? Sailing on Oasis of the Sea on Mar 31 2019 has been cancelled due to maintenance. All of us (5 families = 20 people) had already booked our flight from Vancouver to Orlando. Now, we all have to change our flight to Miami instead. As per the notice from RCCL: And, you’ll be reimbursed for non-refundable airline charges with receipts (up to $200 per guest for Domestic flights and up to $400 per guest for International flights). Does the flight compensation covers both penalty (or any change fee) and the difference in flight cost? I talked to the agent over the phone and sent them an email for clarification. No one can give me a definite answer. Any information you can provide me would be greatly appreciated.
  8. With rumors floating of Symphony going to Galveston once the facility's are ready, I would say Miami.

    Allure of the seas 9-16 Dec

    A fact paper on the ship was handled before we enter to participate in the captain corner. Who can find the error ?
  10. I don't know, that's comprable to a lot of senior living facilities in my area.

    Suite perks on LOS

    Having been with other lines primarily beforehand (mostly NCL), we too wondered exactly the differences since we first sailed on RCL on Allure in an OS and our next two bookings for 2019 are on non-Oasis Class ships. Since we have to pay for VOOM for those two cruises, I started to really worry that we had made a major mistake with those bookings! In some emails to RCL with inquiries, they sent this link. I found it helpful and you may too! https://www.royalcaribbean.com/faq/questions/what-are-the-benefits-of-the-suites-program See you on the sea 🧜🏼‍♀️ Lynn

    What is the standard deposit?

    Never mind. I just did a mock booking and confirmed that this sailing would be a $900 deposit per cabin.
  13. Well, they stopped letting people put luggage tags on massive amounts of water and getting it delivered to their room. This was actually always against the rules but was ignored by most port personnel. (You weren't allowed to bring any water or soda on board, just 2 bottles of wine per stateroom). Now they have an actual policy that allows a limited amount of water or soda to be carried on by you and they enforce no water/soda in checked luggage. So perhaps that is the source of the conflicting information you're seeing.

    Anthem OTS

    I was on Anthem, it showed on the TV when you go to the menu dining section. It is an Asain theme. I didn't really look for it so I not sure just one night or more but it still does theme night and showed on the TV, not on cruise compass.

    Suite perks on LOS

    The Suites restaurants is Giovanni's, lunch and breakfast, it is no charge, so included in the perks, Suite lounge on Liberty is very nice, it is up 14 by Oliver and twist (Or what ever the name is) has one of the best views in the fleet, Diamond lounge is directly on the other side. For breakfast and lunch you can order off the menu (In Giovanni's) or you can go to Windjammer and get what you want and take it in and just use the seating, that way you are not fighting for a seat with everyone else in Windjammers, a lot of people did this on our last Liberty cruise.

    Anthem OTS

    It was on the Navigator sailing i just finished on 2 Dec, that's what had me puzzled.

    Suite perks on LOS

    Thanks everyone for their replies. We did an OS on ALlure last summer but really want to go to Grand Cayman. I have heard good things about LOS. A little concerned about the differences from Oasis class to Freedom class. Any other info would be great!

    Suite perks on LOS

    Is the Suites breakfast alacarte? We were on Allure and loved the Suites breakfast at Coastal kitchen. Hoping this perk is similar but in different location. Also how is the suites lounge? We love the OS as well! Love the table inside and outside too. thank u for the info.

    Canada/NE sailings...Port or Starboard

    Hmmm, sounds interesting. Thanks Joe!
  20. The dates are throwing me off too. Maybe one day I can make a group cruise but our schedule isn't flexible enough to make this work. Kids in school, football season and more. On the flip side, since the GC isn't in July, I'm looking at Alaska. I just need to decide between Ovation and Radiance.
  21. OK, I've looked through the FAQs, help pages, and other things I could think of; and I can't find a single page anywhere that documents the deposit policy for Celebrity. Apparently this has been an issue for a long time, as the only thing I found was a CruiseCritic post from 2013 that asked this exact same question. Now, that page did give an answer, and it said at the time that the deposits were $250 pp ($500 per cabin) for 7-night sailings, and $450 pp ($900 per cabin) for "longer cruises". So both an incomplete answer and possibly out of date, although it sounds like the policy is in sync with Royal. Can anyone here confirm if that's the case? So a sailing 9 nights or longer is where the $900 per cabin deposit is triggered, and 8 nights or less is still $500? I also saw that every so often Celebrity has a $25 deposit event; is that something that happens regularly in certain months, or if it's just luck of the draw to catch it? I assume that is offered separately from the other promo I've seen that includes the beverage package in the booking, but it would be beyond awesome to get the two combined! Asking because I found a 14-night TA cruise through Canada, Greenland, and Iceland before ending in Dublin, which departs in August 2020. I might end up booking it if I can convince the rest of my family to buy into it. My wife has family in Ireland, and had previously expressed an interest in the CA/NE sailing on Adventure, so I'm hoping this could end up being my 50th birthday trip. It would have to be in a pair of inside cabins to have any hope of staying in the budget I can afford, but I imagine it's the same kind of sailing as an Alaska cruise, where having a balcony really isn't a must.

    Booking through Casino

    Gotcha...assume ur a Noir then. If ur that experienced with the Vegas perks, i would definitely go grand suite to enhance your cruise experience.

    Best beach hotel miami?

    Ok...so i had a grasp on which were the better Downtown hotels, and @Matt helped with that. However when asked my 15 year old said she'd rather spend the pre-cruise day at the beach so i assume we should look at south beach hotels. They all kinda seem great online. Anyone have any personal opinions? Jane

    Booking through Casino

    Apparently it’s based on play if you get 5/7 cruise and cabin type as well. . I was given a 7 night for a inside room. I upgraded to ocean view with balcony. However, after calling casino Royale today I think I might upgrade to the suite .

    Booking through Casino

    Just a bit confused, i thought MLife offers were limited to 5 day cruises. That’s great if they let you apply the value to a 7 day Allure trip. My experience has been that the best deals are when u upgrade from a cop offer..like u r doing. Also, my experience has been a baseline room to a junior suite is a 100% increase, and a junior suite to grand suite is another 100% increase. So i would say ur getting a double upgrade for the price but only you can determine the “value” of the GS. More room with 3 people, coastal kitchen lunch & dinner, suite lounge for mom and dad every night (can’t beat the view). Personally, i nominally assign a value of $100 per person per night as a good value. So by the information u presented ur getting 21 cruise night for ~$2k which is what i would call a good deal for ur vacation dollar. Enjoy your trip
