    twangster reacted to monctonguy in crown and anchor - how do they calculate?   
    I have contemplated doing a reposition cruise solo to get to diamond.....at 2 pts a night your looking easily at 30 pts or more depending on the itinerary of the ship...pretty good way to jump levels and the prices on those cruises are usually pretty good. We'll see what happens after I do my next 2 cruises and hit emerald.  But that would be a pretty cheap and easy way to climb the points scale.

    Has anyone else noticed the inclusion of a common step ladder in the play area?

    i think this is brilliant.  If we teach our children at a young age how to use a step ladder, then soon they can clean the gutters, paint the house, hang light fixtures, etc.  All those things that bog down the honey-do list.  Well done Royal Caribbean!

    Two70° is a $30M multi use venue on the aft of Quantum class ships with views of the wake during the day that transforms into a high tech entertainment venue with the flip of a switch (and whole bunch of computers).  Most importantly, cafe270 adjacent to Two70° is the home of the Kümmelweck on Quantum class. It is public except during special events

    Day 5 - Afternoon
    I found the ice cream station on the pool deck, forward, port side:

    It had rained a good part of the day and the water was a little choppy but the ship handled it well.  Late afternoon that changed.  The water become calm and fog moved in.

    They added a few watch officers to the bridge wings and the fog horn sounded every two minutes.  Our speed dropped to single digits.

    I attended another show in the main theater with the Royal Caribbean dancers but I missed the juggler.  Since I had only a small carry on bag I didn't pack until morning which came awfully quickly.  I awoke to a foggy NY harbor.

    Lady Liberty in the distance as we backed into the slip at Cape Liberty.

    After the Windjammer recon took advantage of the last bits of sunlight to take some outside ship "glamor" shots.

    MDR worked normally on Adventure last week in San Juan.  I had a 6PM My Time reservation and it worked the same as any other night.
    Muster was around 4pm I think.  It was a bit strange not sailing away right after muster but worked out well.  A second muster was held before sailing for late arriving passengers who missed the 4pm muster.

    It's a nice quiet place to get sun.  Around the pool area you had better like what ever music they are playing, or the belly flop contest, etc.  St. Tropez is a great place to take a nap in the sun if that's your thing or just enjoy the sun absent of thump thump thump music.  
    Each specialty restaurant needs its own support kitchen so it's a fair amount of work to  place a restaurant anywhere on the ship.

    Breakfast in the Windjammer.  Gotta love that view.

    One thing about my cabin.  My door is at the entrance to the elevator lobby.  Noise hasn't been an issue,  sometimes I heard loud people walking down the hall but you'll hear that in any cabin.  The thing is this.  There is this creepy dummy on display and every time I open my cabin door it is the first thing I see.  Last night his head turned as I walked past.  Okay, maybe that was Kraken.

    Morning folks! After dinner and doing the Windjammer Recon last night I headed back to the room and lack of better works crashed. Next thing I knew it was 8 am.
    Dinner was in Coastal Kitchen, @WAAAYTOOO still using the filet night menu for the first night.
    Today's Chef's Special was a Mongolian Live Station.

    Also noticed something I don't recall seeing on any other ship at dinner, steak and eggs.
    Not sure what kind of theme was going on. The station also had chicken nuggets, mac and cheese, and ciabatta style pizza.
    Headed to the back to check out the dessert bar. Also had a designated gluten free dessert bar as well (sorry no pictures of that).

    Also saw a crepe station with donuts and waffles on the other side. Was told the crepes were an every night offering.
