  2. I too have noticed a huge decline in the mdr. Its such a shame as recently as last February on the Oasis I had such a great experience the food quality selection preparation were outstanding so much so that on the last night of the cruise the staff the chefs the wait staff all got a standing ovation from the entire room all three levels not just the usual napkin waving.November on the Brilliance terrible food mediocre preparation very obvious the menu selections were chosen out of cost consideration not what everyone wanted consisting of mostly pastas and some form of steak they called strip s
  3. Outstanding blog with great pictures I was on adventure oct24 to dec2 and see how much I missed cant wait to go back I love the forts in San Juan pictures as by the time we got off the ship I had barely enough time to enjoy EL MORRO.

An early start in San Juan what I saw I loved I could feel the history I wait excited for your review and pictures of St Kitts the monkeys there were so much fun and the people so friendly.Keep up your great blog and cruise on my friend
  4. I second the vote on controlled meds I take an opiod for a hip injury these types of meds can be looked on differently in different country's Haiti has a particularly strict check from labadee to the ship make sure you can prove they are prescribed its just not worth the head ache
  5. just got of the adventure coffee was very good in the prom café wish the MDR food was
  6. I have seen the cruisers in front of me use them. They were punched multiple times for one coffee it pays to get the royal refreshment package instead of the card

  10. i don't know if this helps for clothing emergencies but years ago on the liberty I forgot some items at home. a friend took me to the customer service desk said something to the lady attending , she ushered me to the back room and to my surprise it was full of everything from tuxedos to swim suits many pairs of very expensive shoes t shirts underwear etc.i did the clark kent to superman and in minutes came out in full dress, saved my cruise it was new years eve and I wanted to look good
  11. last time I was stuck in port everglades for that long it was on freedom and it was because of coast guard inspections on my ship and the one docked in front of us mein Schiff mein Schiff had to move first because of high winds there are many reasons sorry I looked every where and could not find your cause and WELCOME to the form
  12. ha ha and I thought my run on sentence was funny hows that for punctuation? And yes what balsam said.
  13. I too would exercise extreme caution and advise to wait a couple years and see I just for information purposes spoke with a couple of Haitian friends about leaving the compound with or without a local guide and they said NO not just yet be patient they are cleaning up there act over there there are still some very powerful criminal factions over there the government is still never to be trusted tony was not kidding money talks over there and makes things that are illegal and immoral legal for a time many old Duvalier ways still can be seen as the sun rises my friends advise give it time its ge

  16. I for one would be most happy to see rc skip all further stops to Nassau over the years it has changed so much to its present form crime ridden dirty little city with mostly rude desperate con men and women smelly horses and scooter rentals so iffy that only the daredevil should partake in the summer the straw market is so hot that it boggles the mind and heartbreaking to see the babies and young ones living under the booths I find the whole situation that is Nassau depressing and don't want to deal with this on a cruise I for one don't get off the ship and haven't for years when my daughter
  17. may I remind some of the real danger involved in what some consider "just a joint" in other countries remember the case surrounding "The Midnight Express"years ago in Turkey I believe other countries have different views on westerners breaking there laws and most don't have to even sentence the violator just toss them in what we would consider a bus station toilet they consider a cell never (possibly)to see the states again I have been to Nassau many times and cant remember a time the conch shell vendors dockside didn't offer to sell me pot fortunately I have not had any interest in the weed f

  20. I just got of the brilliance on the 6th I had cellular at sea on my phone it did not change on my I phone 7 automatically
  21. I just got home from a wonderful cruise of 5 days western on the Brilliance it was a solo and I had cabin 4587 a solo cabin which I was a little apprehensive when I booked but truthfully it was all a single cruiser needs. everything was in the perfect place it didn't bother me that there was no light or window to see out never gave it a second thought . The 2 1/2 hour drive was a pleasure and that's hard to say after all it is I-4 .Smooth sailing till the fiasco of road work in O town arriving in Tampa was another story after the sign on I-4 telling you to get off here you are on your own thr
