  1. We're back and I have pictures uploaded to my computer. I'll be sorting through them and posting over the next few days. Here's the rest of our cabin and balcony. The master bath was the same as a Jr. Suite bathroom. We loved the space and separation of the living room, and two full bathrooms made getting ready for dinner pretty quick. The balcony was amazing, my kids even had room to practice their tae kwon do forms out there. It would have easily fit two more loungers. The view wasn't too shabby either. We really enjoyed this room. We have the same category booked for our February sailing on Enchantment, and we booked the exact same cabin while onboard for Liberty again in November, 2020.

    I think the appeal of looking at the open ocean at night is seeing the stars and the moon reflected on the ocean's surface because its so dark. You'd be surprised how bright the moon is when there's no light pollution. And then there's the existential aspect of the vastness of the open ocean and how minuscule we all are comparatively to the great universe. If you're into that kind of contemplation, its very nice.

  3. First of all, you're doing the right thing by ASKING QUESTIONS! No question is too often asked, no question is too silly. ASK! The people on these forums are super nice and really do want you to enjoy your vacation! Secondly. Immerse yourself in @Matt 's videos and vlogs. https://www.youtube.com/user/RoyalCaribbeanBlog/videos This is a great resource for many commonly asked questions by first time cruisers and Royal Caribbean veterans. Thirdly come up with a communication system for all of your people. Be it postit notes, whiteboards, using wifi calling/instant messaging, smoke signals, whatever. Come up with a communication system among your people. That way you can let them know if plans change. Maybe you want to go to the comedy act but others want to go to the pool deck... and then your plans change to going to karaoke. Set a postit note in the cabin or on the cabin door saying you're at a different location, or text each other saying the plans have changed. Set a designated meet up spot. Be it the pool bar, the windjammer, a restaurant, whatever. Set a meeting spot so you know where to go to assemble your tribe. Fourth, Be organied. Get a binder to keep you organized. To keep your receipts for excursions, travel documents, receipts for anything, ideas of things to do onboard, whatever. But keep your binder and keep it organized. There are 3 ring folders or sleeves to use as tabs and pockets to organize documentation. Personally with my cruise documentation I like having in multiple places. One copy in my checked luggage, the originals in my binder, and pictures or scans of the originals emailed to myself. That way in case anything happens to the most important documents, copies are readily available. I like also keeping my packing list in the binder. That way I know what I packed so I know what I should have when I leave. I might be a little overorganized when it comes to packing but I'm an organizing nut. I do the same with my charging cords. I label them. I have a little checkin, checkout system in a cable organizer that way I dont leave behind a charging cable. I use packing cubes to keep my clothing and cosmetics etc organized and separated so packing up everything becomes a breeze with just packing the cubes and then depositing the cubes into my luggage. Fifth. Set a spending limit for the teens. I'd limit their seapass cards personally but that's up to you how you handle the teens and the seapass cards. This is just so you dont get any surprise charges on your account due to the arcade or drinks or gifts or whatever. Sixth. Ask questions! And when you think you've asked too many questions, ask MORE questions!

    Voom Price Increases

    Looks like Voom may be going up across the fleet. On board daily rates for single day pass: Surf $24.99 (was $22.99) Surf and Stream $31.99 (was $29.99) On board daily rates for full voyage plans: Surf $17.99 (was $15.99) Surf and Stream $ 21.99 (was $19.99) A number of my future sailings have increased in the cruise planner. One went from $13.99 per day for Surf and Stream to $16.49 per day. I see the rate $16.49 rate on quite a few cruises. This seems to be the "new $13.99". For my 2020 cruises this is now $17.59. Deluxe Beverage + Voom Combo is now $16 more than just the Deluxe Beverage package. If you see old Voom prices in your cruise planner you may want to purchase it now.

  6. My wife & I used to live on a 36’ boat. In 2017 we sailed on Jewel OTS & booked the forward most cabin on Deck 9 specifically for the motion to ‘rock us to sleep.’ Big disappointment; didn’t feel a thing! However, eating in the MDR, towards the aft of the boat, with the motion we felt there, we had to fight to keep awake during our dinners!!! Go figure! We will be sailing on Celebrity Reflection next April, and I booked the aft most cabin on Deck 10. Will see how that compares. This cabin is on the starboard side and we’ve always been high up on the port side in all our previous cruises. So, other than the height, quite a departure from our norm.

  8. I was on the recent extended Empress cruise (due to Dorian), it was my first cruise, and I just wanted to say that was the best consecutive eleven days I've ever experienced, and I'm an old guy that's seen a lot. I'm a huge Royal Caribbean fan now, can't imagine riding with anyone else from here on out. I don't know if it's appropriate but I'm posting a sunset photo taken the night before arriving back in Miami.

    Fees

    If you've prepaid your gratuities and excursions, and you know about the drinks, be aware that they add 18% gratuity to the drinks that you purchase onboard. Only other extras would be specialty dining, extras that you'd get in the MDR (lobster and surf and turf can be extra), drinks in souvenir cup, souvenirs in general, extra tips that you may choose to give on those drinks you buy (over the automatic 18%), in room pay per view movies, room service surcharge and tip, any laundry or dry cleaning, special onboard experiences that have a charge. But in terms of "hidden charges" if you've prepaid the gratuities and excursions, only what you choose to charge to your seapass card will appear on your final invoice. You can keep an eye on your seapass account on your television to be sure, and then if something appears that you dont expect, dispute it with the customer service desk when you see it, rather than at the end of the cruise when there would be a long line.

  13. Yesterday I posted the following post in “Royal Caribbean News and Rumours” and it received a good reaction, but I thought I’d put it here as well because everyone can benefit off this. Judging by numbers, this forum is much more popular than that one, and even if you aren’t interested in Royal Caribbean news, this may help you in choosing the next ship you want to cruise on. I often see posts in here asking about which ships have which venues so here is the answer to those questions! Any questions feel free to ask but I hope that this is able to help you out or answer some question you may have about activities on Royal Caribbean ships. ? —————————————————— So, a while ago, while roaming the internet, I stumbled across this awesome list of which activities were on which ships throughout the Royal Caribbean fleet. It was perfect! Maybe I lost it, maybe it was taken down, but I couldn't find it any longer. So I set out to make my own. After going through every deck of every Royal Caribbean ship's deck plans, I noted everything I could find onboard. Bars, dining, entertainment, I listed it all. Here is the result: View in full screen I find it incredibly useful and I thought that I'd put it here because you all might like to use it too. I hope you enjoy and let me know what you think. Disclaimers: This is my own creation and all information used is from https://www.royalcaribbean.com/cruise-ships/deck-plans (unless otherwise referenced) Therefore, there may be certain inaccuracies because of either certain things missing on the deck plans, or me missing something out If this is the case, please feel free to let me know and I will update it to reflect these. As said, I have not been on all these ships so do not have first hand experience for all these venues and activities, so please do let me know of any errors I may have made. It is quite large so it may take a moment to load, and you will need to zoom out. I intend to update it as new ships debut, or as ships get refurbished/amplified so it is hopefully always an up to date reference point. Thanks for reading and hope you enjoy!

  19. This is really a great question....and one I'm afraid I cannot answer with any certainty. I will give you my opinion....but that's all it's worth. After many years of trying to work the program to my advantage, trust me when I say that I have tried it all !! 1. I do not believe that cashing in and re-buying chips will help you. Honestly, to my knowledge, the only thing that they track with the "card swipe' at the tables, is how long you play and how much you win or loose. The table swipe, IMO does NOT have anything to do with the rate at which you acquire points. 2. Points acquisition has waaay more to do with the amount of your wager than it does with how much money you bring to (or take away from) the table. That's why the table players are at such a disadvantage as compared to the slots players. With slots, every single wager you make is recorded. With table games, they come by periodically and make "notes" on an iPad about what your wagers are but if you vary your wagers (I do not....Dan does) and they happen to only pass by when you are making lower wagers, then that is what they are recording. Conversely, if they happen to pass by when your wager is up, you will get credit for more and your multiplier will be higher. 3. Frankly, the best thing you can do to be noticed is play at the high stakes tables. Dan always makes a point of playing at least 1 full night at the $25-$50 per hand blackjack table. Since the minimums at those tables are higher to start with, your time at those tables will net you more points all the way around. Dan never EVER plays as many [total] minutes as I do but he almost always ends up with more points at the end of the cruise than I do b/c he spends time at the high stakes tables and I go nowhere near them ! Again.....this is all conjecture. They keep their ratings secrets SECRET so I really have nothing to go on but LOTS of experience. One last thing. Don't listen to the people who tell you that they do not give you "credit" for losing money. This is one thing I DO know for sure. If you have lost a lot of money over the course of the cruise, they DO consider that in determining what kind of certificate you will get (but NOT with the number of points you are awarded). Winning will not penalize you but losing DOES count in your favor. I once had a certificate re-issued from a small $$$ off certificate to a free balcony certificate based solely on the amount of money that I had lost (nothing to brag about, for sure !). On that cruise, both Dan and I earned free balcony certificates (the only time that has ever happened !). Many would say that we just 'prepaid" our cruises, which is a fair analysis !

  22. We were scheduled to set sail on Mariner on Sept. 2-6th. We were given and email that the trip would be shortened on Thursday 8/29. They gave us the option to sail and have pro rated refund or for a full refund via future cruise credit. We were traveling via air from Kansas (me driving from South Dakota to Kansas to meet my mother) and knew we were not going to be able to get flights into Florida on Sunday. We got "vouchers" from Southwest for airfare. We opted for FCC (future cruise credit). So far it has went really well. I had the credit send to my travel agent, my drink package and excursions were refunded to my cc on file 2 days later, just received the taxes and fees back to my cc on Friday. I was also able to have the MyVegas credit redemption switched from the cancelled cruise to the new cruise. The only thing we are out is the fee for travel insurance on the first cruise, and have to pay for it again on the second cruise. Not a big deal as, I understand you pay whether it is used or not and it is through a 3rd party. We have already re booked for December. The only thing I need to re do is the drink package. I need it to go on sale again, as they won't honor the price I purchased at for Sept. cruise.

  23. Still topical in the North, the further above Brisbane you get the warmer the temperature.. very similar climate to Florida. Sydney is a lot colder.. average day time temp 17 C / 63 F I meant to say no RCI ship stays here past April. Historically.. P & O Australia are the only ones. But as the name suggests they are an Australian based arm of the cruise line and their ships stay here. Starting next year Carnival are bringing Splendour and leaving it here all year round.

  24. I was on a B2B. Both cruises were altered. First email notice came that they were closing CocoCay so employees could take care families and prepare. This email arrived 3 days before the 1st cruise departed. Two days before the cruise another email that indicated they were waiting to see how the two models, the American and European, which were in disagreement would develop before announcing our changed itinerary. Later that day they announced a sea day to replace the closed CocoCay with a one day FCC based on cruise fare paid. Another email with the revised itinerary and an intention to update us again at 6pm. This email arrived before I boarded my flight to Miami. A short time later the update came with news of the 1st cruise being extended to 5 days. This included notice that any pre-purchased packages would be extended at no cost - beverage, internet or unlimited dining. The one day FCC for missing CocoCay remained if we cruised. If we chose to cancel the FCC would be 100% of cruise fare, with taxes/port fees refunded along with any packages or excursions purchased. Some in our group had to cancel due to work commitments. Eight of us boarded our flights to Miami. A short time later another email for the 2nd cruise of my B2B arrived informing me of the shortening of that cruise. If I stayed on the offer was a refund plus an FCC both or two days of cruise fare. Any packages would be pro-rated for the 2 missing days and refunded. if I chose to cancel I'd get 100% FCC, taxes/port fees refunded and any cruise planner purchases refunded. The FCC would be provided by September 20th. The night before boarding another email indicating Nassau would also be missed and replaced with Cozumel. We immediately made reservations for Nachi Cocum. The next day we boarded normally. At this point we were notified it was still extended but in addition to Cozumel, Costa Maya was added as a port of call. Once on board I cancelled the 2nd leg after verifying details with my travel agent. In my case I had used an FCC from a previous cruise to pay down the 2nd cruise. I was assured that would be re-issued and the balance of cruise fare would be issued as a new FCC. I stopped by NextCruise to inquire about a future cruise. While there I was offered a deal to stay on for the shortened 2 day sailing after this one. The deal was basically port fees and taxes per person. For a balcony this was $199 for me as a solo. For a suite guarantee it was $50 more or $249. Suite would be a JS, GS or OS. I chose the suite guarantee. The next day I was given a GS. While on board the first cruise we were told we would receive 5 C&A points for the first cruise. Normal suite and solo multipliers would apply. Also while on board on the last day of the cruise our one day FCC for missing CocoCay was issued by email. It was exactly what I expected. In summary, for the first cruise they refunded my excursions for CocoCay and provided a one day FCC. The cruise went from 3 days to 5 days at no cost. Dining, deluxe beverage and Voom all extended at no cost. For the second cruise I'm getting it all refunded in the form of FCC. I rebooked on board for less than 1/4 of the original price moving from a JS to GS. CocoCay excursions for the 2nd cruise also refunded. My original FCC that I used towards this booking has now been re-issued and applied to a different cruise. On or before the 20th I am expecting the balance of the FCC offered for cruise 2. I shared a cabin for the 1st leg but was solo the 2nd leg. Originally I was supposed to get 3 x 2 for being in a JS so 6 C&A points, plus 4 x 3 for being solo in a JS on the 2nd leg for a total of 18 C&A points. Since I was "stuck" with my cabin mate longer on cruise 1 I ended up with 5 x 2 plus 2 x 3 for a total of 16 C&A points. During the first cruise on day 4 this note was delivered: I had prepaid gratuity but only 3 days worth so we went to guest services and added two more days to our accounts. Normal gratuity was added to the 2nd cruise.

  28. I'm a big fan of pretty much any "tiki drink". So your Painkillers, Zombies, Scorpions, Mai Tais etc. They just scream "vacation!" to me. One of the fun things you can try with the DDP is, try a new beverage! You say you're not a fan of vodka, but dont let that limit you. Maybe there's a cocktail with vodka but its a secondary ingredient or its made with a combination of juices that overpower the peppery vodka taste. Give it a go! I'm not a big whiskey fan, but I use the DDP to try whiskey or gin cocktails that I wouldnt normally try at a bar only to not like them. And dont be afraid to try something you've never heard of before. Never tried a Dark and Stormy? What better time to try one than with your DDP! Use it to sample cocktails, and you can ask for them in a smaller glass if you're concerned about wasting. Another thing you can do with your cocktails that you DO know you like is amp them up with your favourite spirit. So you say you like gin. Ok so maybe have that tom collins made with bombay sapphire or other fave gin. Like the lava flow with Kraken rum (its a game changer I swear there's something magical about Kraken rum) Afraid of getting a little too buzzed? Dont feel the alcohol pressure all the time and ask for a non alcoholic version of your favourite poolside frozen drinks. Virgin daiquiri, pina colada, lava flow, etc. Dont forget the water! A good strategy to prevent hangovers and getting too intoxicated with the DDP is make a rule for yourself. 1 bottle of water per drink. It will slow you down and will keep you hydrated while drinking. It also tends to fill you up as well so you dont overindulge in the alcohol. Helps prevent DDP fatigue as well.

  31. Cruise Day 3 Today We get to go to a new port that we have never heard of before this booking let alone been to. Progreso Mexico!! Breakfast was at the WindJammier as usual. I have never done breakfast in the MDR. Breakfast is more of grab and go type situation for me. We docked later than a typical port. So we had plenty of time to eat and get down to Deck 1 to disembark the ship. As previously mention Progreso has a FOUR MILE long pier. It is not a typical wooden/cement pier. It is land extended for four miles into the Gulf Of Mexico. Two lane road and multiple turn offs and building along the way. Progreso offers and free shuttle to the downtown area and then you are free to explore. Right where the ship docks there are some chatzky stores and the usual Duty Free shops offering free tequila shots. The shop owners and hawkers are relentless everywhere here. Worst I’ve seen. A simple No thank you does the trick most of the time. The heat was unreal. 88* F but is felt like 110*F. Oppressive is putting it lightly. The bus drops you a central bus depot and it is a 4 block walk to the beach area IF you can find your way out the maze of shops. After doubling back 2 times we found our way. RCCL offers an excursion for the public free beach. $35 pp will get you a bus ride, access to the beach and two loungers and a palapa. Umm, bus is free for everyone… beach is free for everyone…lounger and palapa you can haggle to $10. Am I missing something?? Along the beach are mostly restaurants that offer seating on the beach. We have a simple beach tent to protect us from the sun. This ‘tent’ folds up into a sack that is ¼ the size of a shoe box. Quick set up and tear down. We bought is on Amazon real cheap. https://www.amazon.com/Venustas-Umbrella-Outdoor-Shelter-Lightweight/dp/B07PNW1WPB/ref=pd_ybh_a_1?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=7MGHW9HQSFG72NJ0BKZQ I hit up the convenient store across the street for some soda and water. I was thrown off for a moment when saw a 1.5 Lt bottle for water for $14.50….Yes with a dollar sign. BTW the Peso uses the dollar sign also. Easy translation 20ish pesos to a dollar….so 85c. The diet Pepsi Black was .5 Lt for 40c. Prices for locals are amazingly inexpensive….Tourist areas not so much!! We spent about two hours at the beach and headed back to a restaurant that was handing out little flyers on the way to the beach. Barlovento Restaurant and Bar had little dollar margaritas so that peaked my curiosity. Since my wife is pregnant I had four, two for her and two for me. Quesadillas and fries for me and the baby, enchiladas for the Mrs. she also had some Mexican flavors fruity water. $47 DOLLARS!!! Return bus ride was quick and painless for I hate shuttles and waiting on them to fill up to capacity. This one filled up quick. We were back to the ship by 1:15. That's the NOT the ship in the distance....that not even the half way point to the ship!!! Check out this old school high chair!! One question I had right off the bat was will the casino be open while in port? The ship is docked 4 miles for the coast of Progreso….essentially International Waters? Nope not open. Upon return it was nap time for the baby and mommy. I walked around a bit, then before you knew it was time for dinner. Dinner Me French Onion Soup Caesar Salad Chicken Parm Royal Chocolate Cake Wife IDK Zander Fruit Cup Steak off kids menu NY Strip After dinner walk led us to the ventriloquist show at the theater. I was a little hokey and nice and lighthearted. Zander being your typical 20 month old got bored real quick and we made our exit to explore some shops and head to the room. I then headed to the roulette table to turn $40 in to $240. Now I’m even. Of to bed. Tomorrow Cozumel and Nachi Cocom!!! 1st timer here someone is sleeping. this is part of the dock/pier in Progreso Zander waiting for steak!! These were cool. Fold on this sailing's FB page talked about hiding Rubber Duckies around the ship. They had dozens we found one for Zander. It took us to day 4 to find one, but we did!! Enchantments "added" 70+ feet of ship that was added after the original build

  32. Orange Crush is correct, we do this on EVERY cruise. Phone is always in airplane mode onboard the ship. Only time we take the phone off airplane mode is in a US port, USVI, San Juan, where AT&T is accessible. The caveat we found was .....on an iPhone, you have to select and set up wifi calling BEFORE putting into airplane mode. We leave WIFI calling on ALL the time, home or away. We tried showing some fellow cruisers how to do this several times, problem is if they switch off airplane mode to enable wifi , phone will incur large charges out in mid Atlantic ocean. We found other carriers had wifi calling also. I don't doubt there are those carriers who don't support wifi calling.

We used the “stay a while” yesterday, it’s was a great addition we made our way to the solarium at around 9am made ourselves comfortable and at around 10am we were asked to go to deck 17 forward for about 30 mins so they could do whatever they do, after that we stayed in the solarium eat at the solarium cafe and then made our way to deck 5 cafe for a quick bite and drink before we disembarked at 3pm our cases were waiting in the baggage terminal.. we were given a wristband to wear which was in the cabin night before we left.

  35. When a bartender swipes a card the screen indicates if alcohol is allowed. I imagine it might even prevent a bartender from attempting to charge an alcoholic drink to the account. Last year I cruised with a 20 year old. The card also indicates non-adult status, I think it said teen or something but it was clear and stood out that she wasn't 21. I bought the DX on board for that cruise. Initially they said both have to buy it so I pointed she was 20. They had a print out they looked over and confirmed only me in the cabin was 21 or older so I was able to buy it just for me. Last cruise that will happen. Now that she is 21 at home it's getting expensive having another person at dinner ordering a drink :). I miss the old days...

  38. Just a quick note about this $10/day plan. Most people who have older AT&T plans can use this, but if you have a really old grandfathered plan, you might not be eligible. I found that out the hard way when I tried to get that set up for a trip we were taking and found out that we could only use the $60 for 30 days international plan. My family has a super old grandfathered plan that has unthrottled unlimited data.

  42. For a much lighter poolside option (and a little less sweet), my go to is Absolut Mandarin vodka with club soda and a slice of orange. Super refreshing and with a bit less sugar! That, or Patron tequila and pineapple juice. Yes, there's usually a mimosa station in the Windjammer! I think usually when I see Guinness on board it's canned, but generally readily available.

  45. Convince your leaders to expand your ports. Royal is trying to, that's why they spoke at the convention but they alone can't motivate your ports to expand.

  46. Hi @Amygs1, welcome to the forums (if you weren't already welcomed)! You definitely have to try a Kraken Lava Flow if you're a rum person, it's way better than the regular kind (which is probably made with Captain Morgan's). If you're also into gin, you may want to check out the Collins menu in the Schooner bar; they offer a variety of Collins drinks there as specialties of that bar. Can't comment on those as I'm not into gin, but other specialty drinks I've gotten on board have all been great.

  47. Welcome to the message boards @Takunoskim. The blog ranking here has nothing to do with actual C&A ranking. Here, it will change as your number of posts increases. Just something fun that @Matt came up with a while ago.

    Forward or Aft

    I'm more of a forward person. Some ships do shake in the aft depending on ship speed but more importantly when I'm forward I get to where we are going first.
