    Kurtp13 reacted to Zacharius in Deflated experience on royal caribean   
    I really didn't enjoy my first cruise, which was with Royal Caribbean. Why? Expectations were set too high...people kept saying how good the food was, how good the shows were, etc. etc. Got onboard and found the food just okay, and the entertainment just okay. Decided to give cruising one more try, after about five years, and again went with Royal Caribbean. Went with lower expectations, did more specialty dining (but aside from that just viewed the food as a way to get full, not a culinary experience), and skipped the shows. Have had a much better experience since then, and really look forward to my next one. 
    People may say cruising isn't for everyone, and that's true. But also, cruising may be for you but your expectations were set too high, as mine were at first.

    Saw this on another site 'Sean and Stef Cruise Buddies.'   Appears that the storm  isn't centered on Coco cay.

    Not for embarkation ports but RCCL is getting into the hotel business.  https://www.caribjournal.com/2019/03/31/bahamas-royal-caribbean/

    Kurtp13 got a reaction from MikeK in Hello! and an introduction!   
    For our last cruise I was very impressed with the cabin steward.  She seemed to be a magic fairy that was never in the way and had everything we asked for without any delay, like wine glasses, etc.  She was exceptional and I felt deserved more than a minimum.    We didn't ask for a lot but for everything we did, she was on it.

    sound like my DW also.  She also sends me for drinks while she is "sunning" on deck.

    Kurtp13 got a reaction from Ne47 in Staying on ship in 2 ports - good idea?   
    We had a stop in Labadee on one cruise and stayed on the ship.  There were two reasons,  We're not beach people.   And the food available to us on the ship was better than the last time we were there and ate BBQ.   
    Then on a trip with an overnight stay at Nassau I mostly stayed onboard.  After we had completed 3 ports I had a snorkeling trip purposely set up for the 2nd day.   I wanted a day in between the port days but it was cancelled due to low interest.   I could have rescheduled for the first day in port but I was tired of running around.  Other than a quick walk down the shopping area I stayed on the ship.   
    I didn't think I missed out on anything.  I'll just go another time.   It is super relaxing to be on the ship when in port.   The only thing that is any kind of irritation is some of the things that might be shut down, like bars or towel stations.

    On grandeur they offered a plate cover in the Windjammer if you needed it.  Similar to room service covers.  It probably avoids cleaning up a spilled mess.

    Kurtp13 reacted to monctonguy in Taking breakfast back to room.   
    Just remember...food will be cold by the time you eat it....at best its  "warm" even when you east it right away in the WJ....by the time you get it back to your room and eat it on your balcony it will be cold.....whether you cover it with a plate or napkin or not...
     
    Cold eggs and bacon isn't for me.....its a nice idea, but bringing any food back to the room from the WJ or any place really isn't ideal or practical imho...or at least anything that's supposed to be hot or warm.
     
    Worth a try sure...but I think you'll be disappointed....unless you enjoy your hot breakfast cold...

    Kurtp13 reacted to Constantino in Lengthening a cruise ship...is some ships worth it?   
    seems like the lengthening just adds a bunch of staterooms, without increasing the size of the dining or theater.
    As a cruiser, does not seem to be in my best interests.

    My agent secured an OBC for the confusion.   It was a crazy mess and had me watching everyday to make sure my reservation was still active and not inadvertently cancelled.   If I was a new customer I would have had a terrible first impression.   I am so looking forward to this cruise so hopefully with this behind me it will be smooth sailing from here on out.

    Thanks.   On Allure I never went there even though I planned to go.   So I wasn't sure of the layout.    To many places to explore on Allure in a week.   No worries about the lack of smoothies on Grandeur.  All of that is just window dressing for the main attraction of the cruise.
