  1. Has anyone done both of these and can recommend one over the other? We've done Playa Mia and had a good time but are possibly interested in Chankanaab Park this time. We have no interest in doing the dolphins and are concerned that base ticket from RCI doesn't include many of the add ons - snorkeling, beach activities, etc... Everything I've read and watched on YouTube seems to indicate it is very much an a la carte place that charges for each activity. Food and Beverage input appreciated as well... Thanks Paul
  2. We often stay between Houston and Galveston when sailing... Webster has several reasonably priced Marriott Properties. Galveston hotels sometimes require multiple night bookings. All of this was Pre-Covid...
  3. We haven't cancelled. Royal has cancelled on us 3x. Will either lift and shift or take augmented FCC and apply to 2022 pricing,,, There is a sailing 15 days off from our original sail date that we are interested in Lifting to if Royal lets us...
  4. I am intrigued by some sailings in 2022 from Galveston. Normally for 7 nights it is either : A: Cozumel, Falmouth, Grand Cayman B: Cozumel, Costa Maya, Roatan Seems like they have added another option with an additional port... C Cozumel, Costa Maya, Roatan, Belize City One less sea day but a good spot for seeing some sealife via a mask and snorkel... Trying to decide between B and C for our rebooking... Paul
  5. We were set to sail 08/01/2020 on Liberty out of Galveston for $3366.61, Deck 7 Balcony, Party of 3 Sailing was cancelled on Friday... (Actually it was originally cancelled 03/13/2020... Paid for 12/2019) Trying to explore Summer 2022 Options and am having a bit of sticker shock... We don't want to Lift and Shift because Galveston Liberty sailings in our 4 week window are ALL Falmouth/Grand Cayman itineraries which we've already done and don't want to repeat. In looking at other sailings on Liberty that Summer, they are $4244.26-4789.75 for same Deck 7 Balcony. Summer is pretty much only time we can do a 7-night cruise so we have to go next... So now it's give Royal even more $$$ to redeem the $$$ I gave them in 2019 to sail in 2022... Very Frustrating... Sharla look out for some emails... Paul
  6. August 15 is live sail date for Independence of the Seas from Galveston per Matt... We were booked for August 1... and school starts...
  7. Matt had reported Liberty is to Dry Dock in Spain this summer... Perhaps they are moving in another Freedom Class to cover the existing bookings from Galveston? Could use the majority of existing room assignments given similar layouts? If this is the case, and August 1 sailings happen, we would complete our Freedom Class Hat Trick having previously sailed on Freedom, Liberty, and now Independence...
  8. Would it not make sense that Royal moves ALL operations to new terminal thus opening the old terminal to a new Cruise Line, Norwegian? Royal wouldn't be running multiple ships on same day so they wouldn't need to have two slots...
  9. Quadruple Crown and Anchor points? Double for Suite Double that for 2021-22 Sailings People trying to level up quickly Suites on smaller ships less $$$ than larger Oasis Class...
  10. Need firsthand accounts on this Ferry from Cozumel to the mainland... Hear all the rumors/talk from Matt describing (in my mind) vomit inducing 20ft swells but how is it in real life? Never had a problem with motion sickness on land or sea and have been to Cozumel enough times already. Starting to consider options on the shore vs. staying on the island... (not the 8hr trek to Chichen Itza) Paul
  11. We are 90 days out from our scheduled sailing on Liberty, Have a corner aft balcony and am thinking getting the same spot on a replacement ship is going to be tough,,,

  13. Can't offer recent info, but I will advise to make sure you are comparing apples to apples when looking at different excursions. Some are only an 'encounter' in which you stand on a submerged platform and animal swims up to you... Others are actually 'swimming' during which you get drug through the water while holding on... Second option is generally more expensive...
