Diamond (5/7)



  1. Dinners I know are higher but I've never paid attention to the lunch prices. Right now chops is $24.99 and Jamie's is $22.99. Is it really higher on board?
  2. We are sailing on Anthem and I would like to have lunch at Jamie's and Chops. Are the pre sailing prices different than on board prices. The lunch prices never seem to change.
  3. Are you on this sailing? I have this booked.
  4. Are there any day pass resorts in the Port Canaveral area or anywhere within a reasonable drive of there (1/2 hour north or south)? All inclusive would be best. I've only done one daily resort pass in the past but it was outside of the US. I enjoyed it and wanted to find something similar for this Port stop from NJ if it exists.
  5. With all the extra tasks the ports seem to be doing for health protocols, especially home ports, I wonder if port charges might rise. Maybe spread among all the passengers it wouldn't be noticeable for passed on. But they are doing something additional with most passengers so it would seem the extra expense would need to be accounted for somewhere. I don't know if anyone is in tune with port charges, but I think it's an interesting question. I find the behind the scenes business interesting.
  6. I saw this with my own kids on cruises, join early to make friends when everyone is the new guy. But I wasn't sure what was done with teens. Their programming seems to be a lot less structured.
  7. I would like my granddaughter to cruise with us. I think she would do really well with the teen club but hasn't been on a cruise before. She would be 12 or 13. She might be a little shy at first. Do the counselors start out the week with any icebreakers or organized activities? We would be either on Anthem or an Oasis class ship. When I read the cruise compasses it looks less structured than younger kid programs but initially I would hope for some group activities.
  8. The PM is for tracking workouts. Nothing extra is needed to operate the rower. You can just start rowing. The PM connects with Bluetooth to my phone. The data from the wprlout is stored on a temporary log, then when wifi is available the log can be transmitted to the web based Concept 2 logbook and my Garmin account.
  9. That's better than my times so far but I'm getting better. Any idea about monitor models? I think PM 4s can be used to load data onto some kind of medium but I do not know how to do that process. I only have experienced the PM5. Specifically I have upcoming trips on Anthem and Oasis.
  10. I have recently started rowing on a machine at home. I would like to continue while cruising. I think there are Rowing machines but I can't get any confirmation. I have a Concept 2 (which is the most popular) with a PM 5 (Performance Monitor). That allows me to log my data so if the PM model is known that would help also. Anyone know what ships have them and what brand / model?
  11. I've never been but isn't Captain Jacks on Coco Cay a paid venue? That would not be included?
  12. I have a question. What if we used the package for lunch and dinner, then wanted some bar snacks later at Playmakers, Portside or Vintages. Or maybe Johnny Rockets (I've done a few late night burgers on my trips). Would the package cover these extra visits? I've seen people describing progressive dinners where they get different portions of the meal at different restaurants. I assume it would work the same way. Are any island (Coco Key or Labadee) special spots included?
  13. We stayed in Cabin # 7206 on Adventure of the Seas. It is up in the front of the ship and has two porthole windows. The room is quite large but because it's an angled wall it's not all useful space. It is good for storing luggage or packages and it gives the room a larger feel. I liked it and would pick it again if sailing that category.
  14. Is there a list of Stateroom Obstructed View Percentages? If so it would be a great thing to have. I booked a boardwalk room on Oasis and saw a photo someone posted on-line of the view, so I know it's ok. But having a reference would be a good thing to have.
  15. https://www.royalcaribbean.com/faq/questions/are-there-restrictions-for-onboard-activities#:~:text=Height%20and%20Weight%20Restriction%3A%20Guests,clothes%20and%20closed%2Dtoe%20shoes. I was looking for rules and weight limits for various activities. In the website listed it shows a different listing for Bungee Trampoline and Sky Pad. Are there different activities? I noticed the weight limit was different. Bungee Trampoline Weight Restrictions: 30 lbs. minimum, 220 lbs. maximum Bungee jumpers must wear socks, shirt, shorts or pants. No wet clothing or jewelry permitted while bungee jumping. Sky Pad℠ Age Restriction: 5 years of age minimum to jump, 7 years of age minimum to jump with the VR set Weight Restriction: 20 lbs. minimum, 240 lbs. maximum
