    Cruise day 1!!!! Finally here!!!! We arrived at the terminal with a great Uber driver who shared all sorts of stories from Cuba. I love getting here early...we arrived about 955. A porter led the car all the way in, grabbed our bags and we were in the doors. We literally were 5 mins check in and security with no lines whatsoever... Even at the picture! We are now at 1042 waiting to board! My family of course didn't load the apps yet so we did that...argh! We are ready to go!!! Starting to board!! Jane

    Anyone else sick to death of people sending articles about this to them, apparently as some sort of warning as to why you should not cruise, or are my friends just jerks?

    So that's a little tricky on the website. If the price for the 3 device package is $22.99 per day, you only need to select ONE person when you are purchasing. The total should be closer to $160 for the cruise. If you're selecting 3 out of the 4 people, that's a total of 9 devices you're paying for. Basically, you are saying that you want 3 people to have 3 devices. When you get on board you will be given either one code that allows 3 simultaneous devices, or 3 codes... I forget which, but it doesn't matter who the code is associated with - with that package, 3 devices can be logged in at the same time. If you want to change devices, simply log out of one and log in with the new device. Hope that makes sense!

    Star Class - OVATION OF THE SEAS

    Luciano got us in for another skydive today, roller skating is reserved for 4:30, we met two other families in star class and are having them for cocktails at 3:30. I was sorta surprised when I asked Luciano if we could have a bottle of champagne for this and he said yes, but he would have to charge me for it.n bummed that this is an inconsistency across the genie fleet. On days at sea, there is a bar cart service from 3:30-5:30 so we can also order from that. Yesterday we were invited for a cocktail in the royal loft suite.....holy cow that suite is just massive. I feel like we live in a little hovel here on "dick 10" (this accent on the word "deck" I am told, is not Aussie but rather a kiwi accent.....but I use that word allllll the time now when we are out and about doing those stairs and hallways, and I laugh out loud every single time.....). Anyways back to that royal loft....it's really special. But this grand loft we r in is super awesome as well, so no complaining! if you are doing the skydiving simulator, try to get booked in with Eva........she was soooo much fun with each rider, doing little tricks with them like flips or taking them up high. Then at the end, she went in herself and wowd the pants off all of us! She did this impromptu acrobatic show that had my son saying to me afterwards "mom......now I know why they say boys drool and girls rule!!" If I could have tipped her I would have. And FYI, we had one little girl in our group who was about 5 and she rocked it for her first ride! dinner tonight at Jamie's. Chefs table tomorrow night. tomorrow is another day at sea. a video from the balcony as I type...... capturedvideo.MOV

    Had lunch at Chops Grille yesterday, which was really good. Ordered the crab cake and goat cheese salad. Hubby had steak, mashed potato and asparagus. Too full for dessert.

    I like the way you think. These are the shoes for my outfit. Have a vintage (ugly) polyester shirt and brown bells to go with it. Wifey is still trying to finalize hers. i have no doubt i'll break something wearing these things but hey, thats the cost of having fun! We're on the 4/26 sailing, you too?

    I am all checked in for my cruise in May, but every time I wish to go back in to make sure, I am getting a message that says to try later? Is this because my edocs are now available? I have been trying for days now to get in?

    Coco Cay Update( Video)

    The jet skis are from the beach side of Coco Cay so that should be available. The parasailing use to be where the tenders came in, so that should be no problem either. We did the parasailing a few yrs back. There are only about 8 people on the boat. Make sure they bring their cell phone with them. When we did it, we just handed off our phone to one and asked them to take pics. One person brought a Go-Pro with them. He was by himself and we all were in awe and laughing...he was literally doing back flips when he was up in the air. Not saying that every boat operated would allow that, but ours did. It is definitely worth the money impo.

    Agree with @twangster that no one really knows. However, last week on HM, while speaking to some long time crew members, they all seemed to indicate that OA and AL will be made to receive the same amenities that HM and SY have (including the slides). Then Oasis 5&6 will be a bit different from the other 4. But all speculation at this point.

    Royal IT isnt great. Have you tried a different browser? A lot of people have had better luck using CHROME and opening an incongneto browser.

    So many open questions , until few hours ago only 400 people were rescued from the ship , if an engine broken cant it be towed ? I understand they did not want to use other boats to evacuate the people due to the high sea , Wonder what could have been done if the ship was in real danger .

    Royal Caribbean does not automatically refund or credit you the price difference on the items you purchased If the items that you brought beforeare cheaper now then when they were purchased. I would cancel and rebook at the lower price. You can cancel items that you purchased in your cruise planner and rebook if the price is cheaper and you can purchase other services/packages until 3 days before your cruise. A month ago I purchased some cruise planner items before they were on sale and last week I noticed that some of the items I had previously purchased were now on sale for up to 50% off, so I had cancelled those items and I had repurchased them at the lower price.

    Drink Package in MDR

    I've never seen a mdr that has this. I always stop for a glass of 🍷 on the way and order a second one immediately before dinner. It usually arrives about perfectly half way through dinner. Jane

    Cruise -2 and -1! So day -2 was not pretty. No shoes came out of the suitcase and I spent two hours trying to get photos off my phone. My laptop and external hard drive couldn't find them so I couldn't transfer them. I'm hoping I have enough storage but decided to take my camera just in case. Of course that required an hour of clearing off memory cards. I got to bed at 1130 for a 230 wake-up. We didn't oversleep which was a bad thing. After Jeff was already up and showered, I realized that our frontier flight was now 4,5 hours delayed. Ugh. I went back to a sorta sleep for a couple hours and we finally got to Miami! We are staying at the Hampton inn South Beach. I wouldn't want to do a weeks vacation here but it was awesome to taxi in, get right into our room and be on the beach with just a block's walk. We spent a couple hours on the beach and then showered and are dinner at Maxine's bistro. It was a perfect choice...we all could get something a little different and it was literally a couple hotels over. Collins avenue is very pretty at night. The art deco is fun and the neon is cool. We finished the night with a BOGO rum runner at the hotel bar and called it a day. It's only 10 and we don't have to get up till 8!!! Yeehaw!!!! I haven't gotten that much sleep in probably 2 months lol. Tomorrow we plan to call for an Uber at 915 , and hope to be at the port by 10. Because my family have me grief over taking pics, I got them too late for the expedited check in. I'm hoping we will still be onboard by 11!! I am still in a panic over the BOGO reservations and want to get those done! Jane

    I second that. My Wife and I had a really nice day at Krazy Lobster last december. On top of that, massage is only 20$. You need to go outside of the port (taxis are outside) and ask the dispatcher for Krazy lobster (cost is 3$ each). Enjoy.

    No, that is what they were afraid of, but they have gotten some power back and moved further offshore.

    Bungee breaks on Mariner

    Perhaps 75k but $10m is a pipe dream unless the bungee snapped and he bounced off the trampoline & through one of the holes in the giant ball and THEN flew off the ship and hit his head on the hull before impacting the water below.

    I do not know Blue Reef so I cannot provide an opinion but I have been to Costa Maya a number of times. It is one of my favorite ports of call. I think you are talking about going to Mahaual, which is the small coastal town near the port. If so, I do recommend going there. It is very nice. One thing you should be aware of - there are lots of roving peddlers who wander about selling their trinkets. They are not aggressive but they are persistent. Just politely tell them “no thank you” and they will move on but there will be another behind them. If you are interested in the massage on the beach, I will give you 1 piece of advice. Do NOT let anyone “help” you find a massage. That will double the price and the “finder” will keep half. It is very easy to find the masseuses. They are everywhere along the beach. Just go up to one of them and negotiate a price yourself. Back in the day they were $20 for an hour. I’m sure the price has gone up since then but start out at $20 and see what you can negotiate. It is money well spent. We usually go to the Krazy Lobster but I’m sure Blue Reef is similar. Expect to pay $1 for a Corona.

    I love dogs....but....if someone's 'support animal' peed on my or any member of my family the animal would be in need of a vet since I would have punted it while it was defecating. And if I was in the right place....I would have scored a goal with it on the owners face.

    Star Class - OVATION OF THE SEAS

    Well our room service arrived and with it a bottle of champagne......I guess six glasses is a bottle, so he said it's basically a wash. ordered some veggies and dip and fresh berries.....I thought it would be a break from the heavier fare we seem to be inhaling at every turn on this ship!

    Experienced cruiser mistake

    This has never happened to me but I am always in constant fear that I will go to the wrong airport. Living in northern Virginia, I am about equidistant between Dulles and National airports. National is my airport of choice and we will always choose to leave from there if it works (itin choices and price) but I always have this sick feeling in my stomach on the way to the airport and have to stop and look at my paperwork to be SURE that I'm going to the right one. Every once in a while Dulles is the better choice for one reason or another...so I have anxiety about showing up at the wrong airport and not having time to get to the right one !

    Cruise -3 days Might I just say, packing sucks! Starting this process earlier than last Sunday might have helped but work was definitely in the way! I watched several Rick Steves videos all about the dangers of overpacking and how you should pack for best case scenarios. Yeah....no. I have packed for every worst case scenario imaginable. I swear I will try harder for our 17 days in Europe this summer, but I can’t do it now. Thank god everything is summer light weight clothes. My suitcase is at 48 lbs and I might have decided to take a carry on suitcase as welll. It might be that I don’t need 7 pairs of shoes for 9 days but after staring at them for 30 mins and not being able to make a decision! I decided to just throw them all in. My brain is most definitely shot and I need a vacation!!! My goal was to be packed, devices charged and photos cleared from my phone so I can be in bed by 10 tomorrow but that isn’t gonna happen either lol. I’m giving up tonight so I can nestle all snug in my bed while visions of beaches dance in my head! Jane
