  1. Awesome! I was hoping you could pick up something at the port. We wanted to go to Big Key, but when I finally made up my mind, it was all booked up through RCL! I will try at the port! Thank you!
  2. First time going to this port, was wondering what beaches are the best to visit! Do you advise booking directly through the ship or picking up taxis at the port? Any input or suggestions would be greatly appreciated! TIA
  3. You’ll probably love the Independence, the Freedom class are my favorite ships! I wish they had made more than just three! We are trying the Harmony for the first time the end of September, we have sailed on Oasis quite a few times, looking forward to some of the differences on Harmony!
  4. We have eaten at Solarium Bistro on Oasis on two different sailings, we enjoyed it both times. My husband loves Mediterranean food, so he was quite happy. The appetizers and dessert are buffet style and you order your entree. We really enjoyed our meal, the ambience was beautiful and it was quiet. We have it booked for our Harmony sailing in September 2019, we will see how that one is compared to Oasis.
  5. I just booked all MTD for our November 2020 TA! That was a surprise!
  6. I am also having this issue, it says I have zero reservations—— but I have three! I don’t have the energy to deal with this!!
  7. She was our first RCL ship that we sailed on also, August of 2005! We went through hurricane Katrina, that was an experience! I love what they have done to her, I would love to cruise on her again, but those short cruises.............. not a fan! But the ship is gorgeous, so I could be persuaded ! Haha!
  8. I’m so glad you’re blogging! Your blogs are so informative and they always make me want to book a cruise! Darn, my poor bank account!! 😂🤣😂🤣😂
  9. My husband did the zip line in Labadee the end of September 2018 and he used the hand held mount with his go-Pro, just made sure the wrist strap was on tight! He had a blast and got some really nice footage! It was awesome!!
  10. The royal promenade is on deck 5 and is just like the one on the Mariner, enclosed. The Boardwalk and Central Park area are open to the elements. The restaurants in Central Park have large umbrellas available to use to get to the restaurants, we had to use them once, really not a big deal, as the walk is very short!
  11. I would concur with Jaimie’s. We just got off of Anthem and dined at both Wonderland and Jaimie’s. We thoroughly enjoyed both meals, but we were all adults, Wonderland might be lost on the kids! Wonderland is a must try, at least once, but make it a special adult evening occasion!
  12. I love Freedom, one of my favorite ships! I was on her last April 2018, she looked great and love the crew! The food in the MDR was some of the best I’ve had, cheers to the chefs!
  13. I just got off Anthem on the 18th of January and Chop’s had the red velvet cake! It was delicious!
  14. That is what I am trying to find out. Have heard from fellow Diamond Plus who have left out of three Florida ports this past weekend, that had this happen to them. Was wondering if this is going to be the case going forward. A confirmation from Royal would be great!
  15. I was told this started last week. People boarding this weekend seem to be posting the change. One person who boarded last weekend on Enchanment, out of Port Canaveral also noted the change. Enquired and was told the change occurred last week. Don’t understand how this is saving them money to take this perk away!? It was one of the few left that was beneficial.
  16. Just heard that Port Canaveral and Port Everglades and Miami no longer have priority boarding for anyone except Pinnacle and Suites. Heard this took effect last week! Is this true? Why is Royal taking away all of the perks? Is there going to be no loyalty program going forward? I really enjoyed this perk, as it made it easy to get through security and checked in and on the ship! Guess if true, there is no need to remain loyal, will try other cruise lines that I have been eyeing. We were 13 points away from Diamond Plus, but, really what is the point?! I’m sure other perks will disappear also! Very sad!
  17. I hade this problem for the first time ever, when I tried to check in for my upcoming Anthem cruise in January! I was so frustrated because I am not computer literate! I remembered from the blogs people saying to go incognito, whatever that means! Well, thank goodness my husband knew and he tried and we were able to check in! Thank goodness for RCL blog!! Thank you! Does anyone think they will ever fix the website? Beyond frustrating!!
  18. Unfortunately, this was our experience on Enchanment from many years ago. We had cruised on her many times and I noticed how the crew were horrific. After the third cruise on her, I complained, I also voiced my disdain through their survey. Once you get off a cruise and get home, you seem to forget and find yourself booking another cruise on the same ship, kinda like child birth! Haha! So, we tried Enchanment again! This time the crew seemed to bend over backwards to help, very polite and always ready to please! Shocked! I don’t know what happened, New Captain, new crew!? But, we were pleased that things had changed! Fortunately, we moved onto bigger boats and have never looked back! Something like raw sewage should never be taken lightly, the ramifications of disease, is the number one thought! They threw you a bone, to make this situation go away! This is unhealthy and shouldn’t be happening so frequently! But, good for you for the way you handled it! Glad it didn’t ruin your vacation!
  19. We did Krazy Lobster per @twangster recommendation! We had a wonderful time! There was a small beach with lounge chairs, but we didn’t partake! We sat at the tables and had the best guacamole and the freshest pico de Gallo I’ve ever eaten! Did I mention the homemade chips——— to die for!! They also had $5 buckets of beer, if I remember it was 5 beers and it was maybe three choices! I found something I liked, for a dollar a beer, how bad can it be!? We had a great afternoon!

  21. We’ll be on that cruise also! Can’t wait!!
  22. Just wanted to update on the one day free internet for Diamond, we were on the Freedom April 22-28 cruise, and we still received our one free day of internet (22.99 per day). I'm not sure if it is specific to individual ships or not. FYI
  23. Great pictures! I can’t wait to sail on her in August 2018! Just beautiful!
