  1. There is a lighting tech that has been stuck on Quantum for the last several months. He is a pretty funny guy and talks about his situation and goes on tours of the empty ship. If you are interested in that kind of thing here is the first video in the series: Just thought I would pass it along. Something amusing to watch to pass the time. CT
  2. I also vote for the Crystal Caves. There is also a small beach available next to where Anthem usually docks. The weather sounds like it will be perfect.
  3. Now Monday....I am going to wait it out. They are covering hotel costs. Short cruise, but life is crazy sometimes. We will set sail from Cape Liberty, New Jersey on Monday, February 10th. We’re currently finalizing our itinerary and compensation details and will share the details with you at 2:00 PM EST. We are trying our best to still make this a great experience for you.
  4. Hmmm...changed again: We’ll set sail from Cape Liberty at 10:00 PM on Saturday, February 8th instead of 3:00 PM on Friday, February 7th. Additionally, our visit to Port Canaveral will now be on February 11th from from 7:00 AM to 7:00 PM and to Perfect Day at CocoCay on February 12th from 8:00 AM to 6:00 PM. Unfortunately, we’ll be unable to visit Nassau, Bahamas. I guess I will be sitting in a hotel lobby! Oh also, be glad you skipped Charlotte. I was trying to get to Newark from Charlotte and everything was cancelled due to the local tornados and just crazy storms for February. I ended up at JFK (of course my luggage ended up in Newark) and had to do the $120 uber to get back to Newark. Fun travel day yesterday.
  5. I have been in an interior studio on Anthem three times. It is small, but there is the virtual balcony which really helps. If you don't spend much time in your room or a small space does not bother you they are great. The only advantage to a regular interior room for solo travel is the double crown and anchor points if that matters to you.
  6. I have had this on and off as well. I download using Pocketcasts on Android. I have just skipped forward to get out of the loop.
  7. We went in June. They take you across the water to another island. The pigs are all running (and swimming) in an area that is about 200 x 100ft. About half of that is in the water. They don't make the pigs do anything. They can choose to swim or not. About 5 or 6 pigs choose to swim when we went with about 4 or 5 just sleeping on the beach. We were in the water about 20 to 30 minutes and you feed them and then can hold one and get a picture. They took pictures (which you could later purchase online) or you could use your own camera. At the end they brought out a bunch of piglets to play with. Overall it was entertaining and my 11 year old thought it was fantastic.
  8. On Anthem now and due to a medical emergency we are supposed to arrive at the pier in Bayonne in a few minutes. The Captain announced around noon that a passenger needed to get to the hospital but could not be flown by helicopter. So we have cruised quickly to arrive tonight instead of at 6am tomorrow. So whatever the decision on your itinerary tomorrow at least you know the ship will be there!
  9. I used the digital set sail pass at Cape Liberty a few months back and they happily scanned it in to get me checked in. They then printed out a copy on paper that I had to show everyone else. Would have been the exact same thing I printed at home.
  10. The first time we cruised on the Anthem in an inside room I thought the virtual balcony would just be a gimmick, but was really surprised to find it was nice to have and (kind of) made you feel like you had a balcony. So maybe a useful gimmick. We were told that the camera view you had was the view on the actual side of the ship you were on and that it faced because if the motion of the ship did not match the view on the screen that people would get motion sickness. No idea if this is true.
  11. I was on Adventure for the first time a few weeks ago. I was surprised to see how visible their security was, much more so than any other RC ship I have been on. They were often stationed in the Royal Promenade just standing and watching as well as walking all over the ship.
  12. I have sailed on Anthem a few times in the October/November time frame and one of the nice things was being able to stay inside the solarium during the cold weather until you get closer to Florida. I have not been on the Oasis class, but it looks like the solarium is very open. How windy is it and will it be tolerable while underway? Or are they just counting on folks enjoying other parts of the ship until it gets warm?
  13. A while back someone posted that the Royal Caribbean UK website worked differently in that it showed ALL available cabins. The US site only shows a selection of available cabins. I have tried it and found it to be true. You search for and find your cruise, select the cabin type, and then there is a drop down for every category with all the available rooms. I used this several weeks ago to change rooms to one that was showing available on the UK site but not the US site. https://www.royalcaribbean.co.uk/ Sorry that I can't give credit to the original poster.
  14. Was on Anthem and Brilliance in the second half of the year and found the pizza much better than 2017 on the same ships....They certainly made some changes to make it better.
  15. I just received an email with a sale on this package for 35% off making it $20 a day. This is as inexpensive as I have seen it. If you are thinking of purchasing it this seems like a good time...
