  1. We did a royal one but I don’t remember what it was called. 2019…pre-Covid seems an eternity ago! Jane
  2. Like with everything royal, it just depends. My last couple cruises had a very good deal…maybe $5 a day less…on Black Friday and if I remember correctly, the one before it didn’t. I’m not going to chance my restaurant reservations even if the price is too good to be true, but I’m crossing my fingers for internet and the alcohol drink pkg. jane
  3. I don’t remember what it was called but we went with the royal Caribbean excursion to Delos…it was a small boat to the island, guided tour with headphones, independent museum time and then back. It was a great excursion…didn’t feel the need to go private on this one. Jane
  4. I bought at the 72.99 and really hoping for a Black Friday sale. This was the lowest I’ve seen. Jane
  5. Have you been before? Is it walking distance? I don’t think we are getting off the boat in Nassau but if we are, it might be fun to hit a couple breweries! Jane
  6. In curaçao we didn’t do a tour. Walking around for hours was so cool and we loved the architecture and atmosphere. Jane
  7. I’m curious too. I’ve been on vision twice for my first cruise ever and my first euro cruise (and last cruise I was on). I had heard enchantment was very different because of the stretching, but I thought the others were pretty similar…except for the cruise director. Steve Davis and his thriller dance classes was the best cruise director I’ve ever had. I think it’s more important on those small ships to have a really good cruise director…but I digress. Need to go listen to Michael Jackson while I wait for the answer on the ship similarities and differences. Jane
  8. I am tempted to do the water slide pass to get that pool, but I think we will settle for oasis lagoon. Air fare in December is gonna kill us! But I did check and harmony will be the only ship there my day as well. Yeah! Jane
  9. I actually was torn between dec harmony and symphony and while I wanted to go on symphony more, I didn’t like the itinerary order of cococay on the last day vs a sea day. So now I get Nassau day 2 (we won’t even get off the boat and can sleep in) and the coco cay day 3 followed by a sea day! Jane
  10. I didn’t know about the refundable part…I’ve always assumed all onboard credit was no refundable! Good to hear your scenario worked! Jane
  11. I’m sorry about the reasons but congrats on the weight loss! I have a good 40 to lose myself! Jane
  12. thanks! I will try and remember to do that Jane
  13. wish I'd known that sooner...They may all be gone!! Thank you Jane
  14. i'm not sure he has ever logged in! I have no idea.... I always handle all the registering him. Now that I think about it, I will need to figure this all out, because that will cause issues with the app and check in. Can I pick a time for both of us with the app since we have the same cruise number? Or do i have to sign into both phones? Jane
  15. Ok, because I just can't throw caution to the wind and not make reservations, I'm trying @WAAAYTOOO's idea and booked separate dining times at wonderland, izumi and 150 Central Park, but I also booked the 3 night dining pkg because it saved over $40 a person. On board I'm planning on heading right to a restaurant (on Harmony, anyone found a place with lower lines so I can avoid the prominade scheduling line?) to hopefully just transfer the reservation times and then cancel the individual restaurants. If they don't let me do this, then I want to cancel the package...I will just pay more. My questions are:. Will they refund one or the other purchases on the ship and also, how does the refund come back? Will it be refunded to the original credit card or because the cruise has started, will it go to onboard credit? It matters because I'm trying to figure out whether to pre-pay gratuities or not. Other than extra signed tips (and I'm planning on bringing more small bills this time), we have the drink pkg and don't tend to have a lot to use the onboard credit for. Jane
  16. Another random question... Does my husband get a pin because of my status? I will be at 57 points but he's cruised less than I have. I was thinking he gets to live through me though and get the same points. Jane
  17. We also did delos but had a great tour guide. YMMV on these tours but we loved going to Delos. In Athens we did the Acropolis.. Have to do once but it was insanely crowded. We didn't go to the museum, but instead grabbed lunch at an amazing restaurant on the street. Jane
  18. I'm debating whether to try and book for our cruise... Spending so much on the drink pkg, airfare, and pre-cruise hotel since I'm worried about air travel that I'm trying to pace. Good to know at least a couple weeks ago, there were still spots! Jane
  19. Another beach bed question...I like the sun but my husband would love the beach bed shade. Can you pull a chair next to the bed so that I could sit there summer? Moot point likely for December since lots is sold out but for the future. Jane
  20. Mykenos was a very cool spot, but if I remember correctly the beaches were pretty small and a bit crowded. For us, it was so hot after the ruins tour that we didn't stop. Jane
  21. This is true especially if you don't go in together to check in. They aren't particularly checking room numbers and keeping track of water, soda or wine. Jane
  22. We did the champagne and chocolates with the anniversary decorations. It was waiting chilled when we got to our room. And definitely take the wine on board. We would carry a glass into dinner with us and enjoy drinks on the balcony. Jane
  23. Just a piggyback question... Do you get pins at every level? I'm pretty sure I got nothing for reaching Platinum. In exciting news, I will reach emerald on my December cruise. In not exciting news, I still need 4 more cruises to hit diamond lol! I gotta retire in ten years so I can cruise in the off school season, grab a js and get double points! Wish I could have booked something when royal was doing double points! Jane
