  1. Here's the link for the Royal Up website: https://www.royalcaribbean.com/experience/cruise-room-upgrade
  2. Hi @RatedPG, the Cruise Compass has been added for the May 6th sailing. https://www.royalcaribbeanblog.com/cruise-compasses/mariner-of-the-seas/mon-2019-05-06-0000
  3. Disney also has ships with self-service launderette facilities. We were able to pack about a third of what we would have had to pack for a family of 4 on an 11-night cruise.
  4. Hi Mel40, you are allowed to bring up to 12 non-alcoholic beverages per stateroom in the form of standard (17 oz) cans, bottles or cartons. https://www.royalcaribbeanblog.com/save-money-royal-caribbean-cruise-vacation
  5. Not a problem! I will save them and forward to Matt for uploading to the site. 😃
  6. According to the most recent Cruise Compass for Freedom of the Seas, MTD is located on Deck 3. https://www.royalcaribbeanblog.com/cruise-compasses/freedom-of-the-seas/sun-2019-04-07-0000
  7. Last year, we booked a cruise and received $100 OBC (balcony) for booking through NextCruise plus $100 OBC from the promotion Royal was running at the time. Once we got home, we realized we could save money by moving the date to a different month. We were told we could keep the extra OBC offered by NextCruise and deposit as long as we kept the same room type (i.e balcony in our case) and we made the change within 30 days of booking. We could have lost the $100 OBC from the promotion Royal was running when we booked but we were also able to keep this too since the promotion was still going on. You are making the change in different months, so be prepared to lose or gain OBC depending on the promotion Royal is running at the time you book versus when you modify the booking. For example, a different cruise we booked through NextCruise was recently repriced for the Kids Sale Free promotion. We had $100 OBC for booking a balcony through Next Cruise plus $175 OBC for the promotion Royal was running at the time. The Kids Sale Free promotion did not include any OBC so we could only keep the $100 OBC you get for booking a balcony with NextCruise. We were okay loosing the other OBC from the prior promotion because we saved over $800 with the Kids Sale Free promotion. Hope this helps.

  9. With the current KSF promo, we saved $569 in the beginning of the week and then yesterday noticed another $75 price drop for our sailing. It had been a long time since we saw a price drop on one of our cruises so I'm glad to see they still can occur.
  10. I currently have three cruises booked and none of them have had a price drop since I booked them. In fact, my Mariner cruise has rose to three times higher then what I paid but has since dropped to only 2.5 times more. I have repriced cruises in the past but agree with you that prices seem to only be going up recently (at least for the sailings I have booked).
  11. Welcome to the message boards, Kathleen! Below is the link for the current NextCruise flyer. http://www.royalonboardsales.com/content/assets/2015/05/19066784_NextCruise_MarchOffer_Flyer.pdf
  12. We just returned from 4 nights on Enchantment using The Key. We arrived at the port around 11:00 am and was directed to the Expedited line (guests with passports and a set sail pass) so we didn't use The Key but boarding was super quick. Once on board, we dropped off our carry-on luggage at the theater and then explored the ship before heading to Chops for lunch at 11:30 am. Once the cabins opened up, we made our way to our cabin to find our carry-on luggage safe inside as well as our Voom codes. For the shows, the reserved seats where located on the balcony (above the reserved section for Suites and Pinnacle members). We never sat up there because we preferred the seats on the lower level. There were two private sessions for the Rockwall and two private sessions for the Jumpzone (one session each day). Like @SpeedNoodles described, there was no one near the tender line for Coco Cay so we just waited in line. Everyone in line was able to board the tender so this wasn't an issue for us. For disembarkation day, we enjoyed our breakfast without being rushed and when finished was able to walk off the ship through the exit labeled with The Key. Overall, we enjoyed the benefits of The Key and would consider it again. I definitely see where there could be more value on larger ships with more to do (i.e. Flow Rider, Sky Pad, Perfect Storm, etc).
  13. The only photos we have seen from the kids club are ones where the captain took a photo with our kids.
