  1. Just ran through a mock booking, and it looks like the traditional self booking and self pay is still applicable, even for a booking less thatn nine months out. Good to know. I can see, however, that this would be a good opportunity to build or rebuild credit or pay for a cruise if one is not good at keeping on top of payments.
  2. The question is, will you be able to book and pay on your own without using this?
  3. Great question! This has been a topic of conversation several times on this forum. One of the more detailed sets of responses is here: https://www.royalcaribbeanblog.com/boards/index.php?/topic/940-seasickness-motion-sickness/&tab=comments#comment-8480 Ultimately, the effectiveness of treatments vary from person to person. I actually have a vertigo bag prepacked for cruising, with sea bands, motion-ease oil (essential oil that goes behind the ear, much like scopolamine patches), and meclazine (OTC). I haven't tried the ginger chews yet, but they work for some people.
  4. Brilliance of the Seas - 5 nights Western Caribbean- 12/14/19
  5. Hmmm... Wish I had found this gem before I booked my next 5 day Royal cruise out of Tampa. So here it is... (Tada!) https://www.cruisetimetables.com/ Yes, this little gold mine has the port schedules for nearly every port around the world that services cruise ships. Concerned about your next cruise having too many tourists in port from a large number of cruise ports? Want to get an idea of how far out to book that third party excursion? Yes, there will be some changes from time to time, especially during hurricane season when ships re rerouted to other ports (Saw this for Mari
  6. Anyone can go in that area. We just got back from there on Enchantment, and had a great time snorkeling. Brought our own gear and didn't have to pay for an excursion.
  7. Was just on Enchantment on Sept. 17, and the CD was Cruisin Susan and the AD was Moe from Fiji.
  8. Man, did I need this vacation. My wife and I managed to book side-by-side inside rooms (7045 & 7049) with our friends on Enchantment of the Seas, leaving out of Port Canaveral On September 17th for 4 nights to Coco Cay and Nassau. The trip to Port Canaveral from just north of Tampa went fairly smooth, and we managed to get to the port and park by 12:30pm. Thankfully, we were early enough not to be stuck on the top deck of the parking garage. Entry and embarkation were fairly seamless, except having to check certain dive equipment with security, which didn’t take too long, and the confiscat
  9. Sept 17, 2018 on Enchantment of the Seas
  10. I do miss the Banana Caramel soup on Majesty...
  11. I was pleased to see that RCI was offering itineraries to Cuba from Tampa this year, even though it didn't quite fit in our schedule. I did notice, though, that come January 2019, the only line going to Cuba from Tampa is a pair of "funships" that shall remain nameless. Does anyone know if Royal is planning to repeat this route, or if travel to Cuba is being kept to Royal vessels out of Fort Lauderdale and Miami?
  12. So, I was kinda jazzed to see that the Enchantment of the Seas was added to the list of vessels that afford access to the Royal App in this most recent update. However, this raises a few questions: 1. Has anyone used this on Enchantment (or any other vessel for that matter), and what did you think of it? 2. Does one need to have the internet package to access it while on board? Thanks!
  13. Now the $65 million add on to this thread, where on the ship, besides the Windzhammere (Sorry, Matt, had to emphasize that one) Latte-tudes, and MDR can one get specialty coffees and teas with the Refreshment Package?
  14. Our first cruise was on Majesty, and we loved the ship. We found it nice to not be overwhelmed by our first ship. It was easy to find our way around, and with many people off the ship in some ports, the tranquility, even on the pool deck, was delightful.
