  1. A USB charged hand held fan. My friend and I always bring ours. We have used it on the ship and on shore. We have had several people ask us where we got them (Amazon) and they were disappointed that the ship store didn't have them.
  2. A word of caution about Radiance class aft balcony cabins is that they are booked in the first couple of days. Was booking 2 on Radiance once and one of the cabins was booked by someone else while we were on the phone the very first day. We also booked the first day on the Serenade Panama Canal cruise and we couldn't get next to our friends so someone else has the cabin between us. We love the Radiance class aft balcony cabins because they are JS style balconies at balcony cabin prices.
  3. We did this cruise out of Rome in 2015. We started with 3 days in Rome and then boarded the Allure. About 1/3 of the passengers boarded in Rome the other 2/3 boarded in Barcelona. The only issue we had was that Royal did not offer any tours in Barcelona for those of us who boarded in Rome. Barcelona was the primary port and Rome was the secondary port. We really loved Rome and would recommend boarding there. Barcelona is easy to navigate on foot down the main thoroughfare from the water. It is really a pedestrian friendly port.
  4. I am seeing a European Food and Wine cruise in September 2021. I was wondering if this is a themed cruise. Has anyone ever done and Food and Wine cruise on Royal? If so what was it like?
  5. We order continental breakfast items every morning for no extra costs. Bagels, toast, donuts, pastries, fruit, etc. Just remember to fill out the breakfast room service flyer and put it on the door knob the night before. They call you when they are bringing it up in the morning in case you over sleep. We love to eat our "breakfast" out on the balcony in the morning.
  6. This is not fake news. The person first posted on FB and was told to report her. He showed the picture to RCCL staff and they figured out which cabin she was in. They confronted her and then she was ordered to stay in her cabin until the next port. She was escorted off of the Allure in Nassau Bahamas this morning and is permanently banned from any RCL (corporate wide) ship.
  7. We have done Alaska twice (one was a cruise/tour) and we have done NE/Canada once. If you love outdoor adventure you cannot beat Alaska but if you love history you NE/Canada outdoes Alaska. So both are great depending on what you are looking for. Also, take into consideration that next year will be the 400 year anniversary for the landing of the Mayflower. If you sail from Boston or have Boston as a port there will be all sorts of extra things going on because of this major historical event.
  8. The Serenade of the Seas (Radiance class) is going through the Panama Canal next May in order to transition to the Alaska/Australia markets. This is the largest ship that Royal has sent through as far as I have been able to research. All others have been Vision class or smaller. I have thought and still do think that this is a trial run for Royal's larger ships. If so then the west coast 2021 plan could be Voyager class or larger if all goes well next May.
  9. None of the Radiance class ships balconies can be connected (we have had connecting rooms on them twice). I believe only connecting cabins on the Voyager class can have their balconies connected. On the Oasis class and Quantum class side by side cabins can have their balconies connected. So it depends on the ship you are on.
  10. Received an email this morning for a loyal customer Royal Caribbean survey. It looks legit but I wanted to know if anyone here has also received this email before clicking on the link.
  11. I want to thank y'all for putting a smile on my face and laughter in my heart today!
  12. Of course he is, Matt has the best cruise advice of anyone out there!
  13. And once again they are going to take out the iconic classy Champagne Bar and replace it with the useless Bionic Bar. I assume it is to be able to charge the extra for drinks and not pay a bartender.
