  1. What time would you suggest doing this? Did you have time to enjoy Coco Cay when you got back from the excursion? Was it really only like 2 hours long?
  2. How much do they charge for the photos? Did they allow time for photos with the pigs on your trip?
  3. There is a certification available for agents through IBCCES that trains agents in assisting clients with autism and special needs. You can check their website for a list of certified agents. Of course, that doesn't guarantee the agent has personal experience, but it is one more level of training that you could look for. you might want to try asking around on Message boards dedicated to the special needs community to see if anyone there has an agent they have worked with that did a good job. As an agent, I know about the programs for autistic and special needs families, but I don't have direct experience using those programs. if you want someone who knows it on a personal level, you'll definitely have to do some interviewing or get referrals from other families that have similar needs. The world is becoming much more in tune with special needs travelers, I'm sure you will be able to enjoy a wonderful vacation on Royal with your family!
  4. I have my list of RCCL ships I can't wait to sail on, but I feel like I need to make a list of the tones i should avoid (at least until they get a face lift). Which ships would you suggest someone avoid? Or are there itineraries compelling enough that you don't care if the ship is outdated? Thoughts?
  5. I see that I can book My Time dining times in my Cruise Planner which seems cool. Can I book more than one night at a time or do I have to check out every time? I can;t seem to add more than one night to my cart at once, but maybe that;s user error. What if I change my mind when I'm on the ship and want a different time? Will I be able to change it in the app? (I"ll be on Anthem if that matters). Thanks!
  6. Gotcha. And if I'm on an 8 night sailing, do they charge me by the day or night for drink package? Looks like maybe day? So, 9 days on an 8 night cruise?
  7. Are there taxes added to the purchases? I'm trying to figure out what the cost per day was originally, but of course, it isn't coming out to an even amount. Grrr.
  8. If a drink package or Voom is cheaper on the current sale, how to I rebook the item? Do I have to cancel first, then buy it again?
  9. We are sailing on Anthem over New Years and the cabana prices are pretty high for our sailing. Looks like I can grab South Beach for $799 vs $1299 for Oasis Lagoon or Thrill Waterpark Cabana. Chill Island showed up this morning, then disappeared again ? I think it was also $799. So, A) are cabanas even worth it? B) which ones are better? (we are more interested in hanging out away from little kids, our son is 14 and acts like he's 30 LOL). C) what else should I be thinking about as I decide this?
  10. When Anthem stays in port over night in Bermuda, is there a curfew? I looked at cruise compasses and didn't see an all aboard time, but I just thought I'd double check! I thought they'd always want everyone back on the ship at some point, but maybe not?
