    Back from an awesome week on Harmony!  Door decorations worked great and were a hit, particularly with our neighbor's kids who we would occasionally hear playing with them.  With our two rooms being a few doors apart, they definitely helped us all easily identify the correct door to knock on (or open) as we bounced back and forth!
    Now these magnets will find a new purpose either here at home or in my classroom.

    A port will happen eventually not sure it will be as shown now because people are upset because the government fired there environmental person because they didn't like what they were saying and they haven't proven they have done their research fully. I myself do not agree with the current proposal as it will damage some of towns best reefs (attractions people come here to see). I have seen other locations with better solutions to be honest. I do believe its more about the money then anything (some works are not paid as well as you would think especially in the construction field). It will happen just not sure when or if this will be how it will look. I do fear we will lose some of the brands that come here that aren't part of this deal and I honestly don't know if the port is worth it (ports are nice but at that price I don't know).
    *Rant over lol*

    We had cake on our anniversary night at our table. They do include so discounts if you want a spa treatment and I think there was a personal photo shoot (still need to pay for the photos though lol). We never bothered with decorations but I think I might surprise my wife with something on our next cruise (also on our anniversary, kind of a tradition now). I think I will do something myself when she is occupied. I normally do the final packing anyways so would be easy to sneak stuff in the suitcase 😉 lol.

    I have seen people playing card games and stuff like that during things like music shows in the lounges. I personally plan on bringing the card version of monopoly and clue (has an app add-on you can get for ios) when my wife and I go next. Long as you don't mind the sound and aren't loud you'll be fine. And if you have a few drinks while you are there then they will be very happy lol.

    i never reserved any time. (to me that defeats the idea of MTD but that's just me) But I have never felt rushed to finish quickly. I tend to leave desert choice till last because I may change my mind. Sometime I also still feel hungry so order another order and never had stuff upset with me. (If they were they didn't show it)

    LetsTryThisPlace reacted to twangster in Swim Dress Code   
    For cruises in North America Royal is a family oriented cruise line.  Revealing swimwear will likely be called out and frowned upon.  Cruises in Europe may follow different trends.
    I'm over the Speedo limit.  As Johnny Carson said, "If you look down and can't see your Speedo, you're over the Speedo limit".
    That being said I did see some younger guys wearing a Speedo on Empress.  Some things can't be unseen.

    I have never seen anyone playing a game be asked to move. AaMoF, when we first started cruising, we used to play gin rummy in the Viking Crown room (back when there was actually a Viking Crown statue there !).  We didn’t know about the Special Diamond event (we’d never even heard of a “Diamond” back then) and when they started setting up for the event, they told us just to stay put if we wanted to.  We attended our first ever Diamond event that night without even knowing what it was.  They were very kind.  We just kept playing cards and were astonished when the server came by and asked if we wanted a drink !  Heck yeah !  That was waaay back.

    LetsTryThisPlace reacted to Galveston Steve in Anniversary Decorations on Symphony   
    I have ordered the Bon Voyage decorations for one cruise and the Birthday decorations/cake on another cruise.  The description said they would be in the cabin on Day 1.  That didn't happen either time.  I had to go to guest services, explain things, show them my email confirmation, wait while they made numerous phone calls to other departments, etc.  Both times they did finally deliver decorations to the room, but both times they were still incorrect.  In one case they delivered the wrong decoration package, even after detailed discussion with Guest Services.  The other time they failed to deliver all of the amenities.
    Royal usually makes things right, but these were frustrating experiences, especially when I was trying to surprise my spouse.  Both times Royal ruined the surprise aspect and I ended up paying for stuff that I didn't get.  That's just my experience but I'm done with ordering any more decorations through Royal.  I'd suggest doing it yourself, as others suggested above.
