  1. I think the ad merely has default copy for generic RC cruises, and not necessarily Odyssey.
  2. @Big Dawg Ron: Matt! You've gotta come back with me! Matt: Where? @Big Dawg Ron Back to Perfect Day at CocoCay! Matt: Whoa, wait a minute, Ron. What are you talking about? What happens at Perfect Day at CocoCay? What, do we sign up for a cruise with @monorailmedic or something? @Big Dawg Ron No, no, no, no, no, Matt. You turn out fine. It's your weekend, Matt. Something gotta be done about your long weekend! ----- Friends, it's time to go back on board Mariner of the Seas over Labor Day weekend for a quick jaunt to Perfect Day at CocoCay, and a return to a live blog here on the forums! With an extra day off on Monday for the Labor Day holiday, I couldn't help myself but book a quick weekend cruise on Mariner. Originally I was on Navigator of the Seas this weekend until a certain person decided to hold a celebration of their final days of being single there and I was forced to change ships. Instead, we are headed back on Mariner of the Seas and down to Perfect Day at CocoCay. Another visit to Perfect Day at CocoCay is always welcome, and these weekend sailings line up quite well with me schedule. I can work until lunch on Friday, head over to the port and then wrap up my day while onboard the ship. Then the rest of the weekend is enjoyed onboard the ship! Not only am I looking forward to getting back to Perfect Day at CocoCay, I am looking forward to @mpoole3 not ruining the weather this time around. Cabin For this cruise, we have a category 2T Promenade View Interior room. As I recall, prices for a balcony were a bit out there and a Promenade room gives us a much better value. Plus, on a 3-night cruise without kids, how much time will I really spend in there? We will visit Nassau and Perfect Day at CocoCay. No plans booked for Nassau yet. Will wait and see what I feel like and then decide on something. For Perfect Day at CocoCay, I reserved an Oasis Lagoon cabana in the name of "science". I've stayed in the Thrill Waterpark and Chill Island cabanas, so now I need to try the Oasis Lagoon Cabanas to fill out the trifecta. The live blog kicks off on August 30. Until then, I will be counting down the days until we depart.
  3. Yes, that's the one. You drive up to the porters, drop off the car and luggage and on your way.
  4. Reading this thread as I sit on hold to book a drink package..... eep!
  5. Here's what the beach beds look like (in their old location):
  6. My advice is to not rely on Royal Caribbean for any infant supplies. Bring your own, and pack more than you think you will need.
  7. Even easier, Tampa offers valet parking. It's like $15 more than parking at the official garage. I use it everytime. Saves so much time.
  8. Hoverboards are specifically listed as prohibited from being able to be brought on a Royal Caribbean ship https://www.royalcaribbean.com/faq/questions/prohibited-items-onboard-policy
  9. I'd recommend checking out this recent blog post about how early you can get off the ship: https://www.royalcaribbeanblog.com/2019/08/12/whats-the-earliest-time-i-can-get-my-cruise-ship-when-its-over
  10. Voom Surf and Stream is overall a better online experience IMO, regardless of if you plan to stream or not.
  11. Just a quick clarification, I think you mean Radiance. Rhapsody doesn't sail to Alaska.
  12. We definitely used to leave our then-3 year olds past 10pm. They would have a GREAT time with the staff, watching movies, etc. Potty training aside, they loved it. We prefer to feed our kids at the Windjammer at 6pm and then drop them off at AO at 7pm, and then enjoy dinner in MDR at 8pm. Nothing wrong with dining with your kids in MDR at all, just our personal preference.
  13. If you cruise goes over the actual holiday, expect special events
  14. Thrill waterpark cabana does come with six water park admissions. But if your parents are above and beyond that number, yes, they would need to pay for admission.
  15. Voila: https://www.royalcaribbeanblog.com/cruise-compass?ship=1167
  16. Yes Yes. Guests in a Grand Suite stateroom or above will retain complimentary room service.
  17. This site is also pretty good at compression: https://imagecompressor.com/
  18. Definitely a no at the spa. Your best bet might be in the morning they have smoothies in the Windjammer.
