  1. Morning Muesli with extra over-whipped cream on top.
  2. I prefer to book with my agent (SHARLA!!) but I have been known to spend time and money at those next cruise desks. It depends on the trip. On the ship you can see ALL the rooms available on a deck, which is nice when looking for two rooms. Also if I book it on the ship, it can still be handled by Sharla. I like the fliers at the next cruise desk that have one ship's entire itinerary for the next year or two, or one port and all the ship's schedules.
  3. Has anyone ever received notification that you are upgraded at dinner, after you have been to your originally booked stateroom, dumped your stuff, and are half unpacked?
  4. Yes, minors get the drink vouchers too. 5 for diamond plus, and they work for Redbull. You have been warned!! Anything 13.00 or under.
  5. Just email them and ask, that is what I did when I needed tests. The expiration date of what they are shipping changes frequently.
  6. My husband just returned from a week on Odyssey - deck 6, port in a Studio. It was not obstructed, but did have a smoking area below. Also you cannot cross to the starboard elevator on deck 6 from the port side. He said the smoke was not awful and he was able to use his balcony when he wanted. But if you are very sensitive to smoke don't book a studio or "square" obstructed room on deck 6, port.
  7. I am masked and tested at work, so it has become routine. On cruises it is not so bad, as I am either outside or in my room/balcony most of the time - so the hours in a mask are much less for me on a cruise vs. normal life. It's all about perspective. I hope the Windjammer stays the same, the reduced touch points by being served or having servings in grab and go cups and bowls is great. Remember Norovirus? Blech.
  8. I rented a car at the Miami airport, I took the car rental shuttle to the airport from the pier, picked up and dropped off the car at the Miami airport car rental center. Most major rental companies are there. It was simple.
  9. In the Solarium bar they were making smoothies with oats, protein and fruit (in December 2021) . They qualify as a Diamond drink! I'm also VERY VERY pleased the flowrider surface was replaced! It was... challenging with the bubbles and the standing seams. Thanks RCCL and Flowrider.
  10. "what is a HAM radio" may or may not have been the answer... officers are getting younger
  11. I went on a Viator/Trip Advisor Farm to Table Excursion in Cozumel, it was excellent; but I work in agriculture, enjoy meeting growers and farmers, and love to cook and try new foods. If you are not willing to be around farm animals and cannot walk on uneven surfaces, this tour is not for you. But if you want to see multiple varieties of what I call "orchard" crops from shrubs and trees, at a farm owned by a Mayan descendant family, and learn how to prepare a few recipes for drinks, snacks, and a meal then this is for you. I met my driver just outside the port, and I went in a clean, modern vehicle with AC to the farm. I met the host and his father and had a lovely time touring the farm and preparing food. All food prep and cooking was done outside - the entire tour was outside. Flush toilettes were available and clean. Hand sanitizer and soap and water were available. The driver then took me back to the port. I participated solo, I believe he said they accept up to 6 or 8 people.
  12. I will go on a "farm to table" excursion next week through Viator. I'll try to take photos & post a review. Something different than beach/snorkel/shopping.
  13. I have driven to Ontario from Northern New York, more than once, just to buy beer. I always claim it. I also stop at Tim Horton's... LOL. Twangster is right, you don't lie to border control. I always declare everything, once I bought hockey skates and I ended up receiving the tax back! You will be able to bring the 4 L back, just pray the bottles don't break in your checked bags.
  14. Yes, you can pay for one 24 hour period, so you can use it on two half-days if you wish. Make sure it's working before your zoom meeting, then you have access through the next day. for example 1 pm Tuesday through 1 pm Wednesday. If the WIFI is slow in your room, ask the staff for a recommendation as to a strong, quiet spot on the ship.
  15. Send a message to Sharla on Monday and ask, she booked my Air 2 Sea for a day prior - but it was before the new reservation system. I agree, I will NOT fly in the same day. I always have to change planes, have a connection from a regional "Barbie" jet to a big jet. Many issues can and does cause delays.
  16. I have the front desk call a taxi for me if one is not sitting at the curb. The rates are set by zone, passenger and luggage. Sorry, I do not know the current rates.
  17. The ship excursion is not available for my late December cruise. I may rent a car or use Uber to take my boys to Kennedy Space Center.
  18. For dining packages, you can book the times for dining when you board the ship. By then you will have the entertainment schedule on the app. Entertainment in the past has been scheduled around traditional dining room times of 5:30 and 8:00 PM. Anthem sometimes has matinee shows on sea days as well.
  19. My teenagers enjoy the main dining room more than I do. They REALLY like Coastal Kitchen.
  20. Has the Diamond Plus BOGO happened on any 2021 sailings? I am not able to book a 3 night package for December on Anthem (I get into the system, then nothing is available but single-night fees), but if we can do the BOGO that may work out better for my family - and less money for 4 people than the 3 night package.
  21. Set them up with email. That's what I did .. Email at the age of 9 months old. They will need it anyway!
  22. Ha! I felt bad enough emailing Sharla on a Friday night (that is when I had free time)... I had no idea she was on vacation. She moved me from a studio to a 7th floor obstructed view balcony for a nice cost savings on Saturday! Sharla and MEI are great.
  23. It took 80 days to receive my son's new passport, submitted in early February. He is 16 now, so this one is good for 10 years! I had to make an appointment with the County Clerk, I filled out the application and printed it beforehand, photo was taken on-site. It took 10 minutes, no wait or lines. 40 days after submission, my check was cashed, 40 days after that we received his old and new passport in separate envelopes (standard procedure).
  24. Sharla (MEI) took care of it! I did not pester her until yesterday afternoon, this morning it was all done. Like magic.
