    CruisinUngs reacted to twangster in Royal IQ app, waste of money!   
    You don't have to purchase Voom to use the chat/text feature of RoyalIQ, they are mutually exclusive and are purchased independently.
    A Voom plan allows internet connectivity.  The chat feature of RoyalIQ is simply that, a chat add-on feature that doesn't use the internet. 
    If your friends had purchased Voom you wouldn't have had to purchase the chat add on within RoyalIQ, you could have used WhatsApp or any other wifi based chat app.
    Having said that, RoyalIQ is eventually being replaced by the new 'Royal' app.

    Just wanted to say hello! I’ve been reading the blogs, and posts for a long time now, and finally decided to setup an account. I’ve been cruising with RCCL since 2002, first ship was Voyager of the Seas, and basically have been doing the Voyager class ships. This August I will be doing my first Freedom class (Liberty of the Seas). I am kind of set in my ways, hence why I stuck with the Voyager class. My girlfriend talked me into going on Liberty. She has a 13 year old son, and I have a 7 year old daughter. For me girlfriend and son, this will be their first, for me this will be my 10th, and my daughter her 4th. 
     
    Anyhow, just wanted to say hello!

    Ok, we need a used camera gear marketplace section. And just a cruise photos section. Don't put your Nikon stuff on ebay before checking with the group first twangster! I use a d7200 with 18-140 lens and the new 10-20. Before september cruise I would like to pickup a 35mm 1.8 DX for the low light shots and the new 70-300 AF-P DX. All of which will be useless if I ever move up to an FX like your d750 though. I do wish my d7200 had facial recognition like the d750 though.

    Welcome to the message boards!
    The patty and buns are identical to WJ.  The sauce they use and the availability of onion rings is the key differentiator IMO.

    Hello all!
    I love cruising and am excited to have found this blog. I'm on the June 28, 2018 Symphony of the Seas sailing. I'm hoping to find some advice here on disembarkation times and tips on the ship. 
    This is my 3rd Royal Caribbean cruise, my 11th cruise total. 
    A little bit about me. I'm a romance novel author. I tend to travel as a group of 4-10 (this group is 10). We're a mix of ages -- youngest 8 years old, oldest in late 60s. I usually book one suite and put everyone else in a regular balconies. I book most of my tours independently. 
    This is our second European cruise. Our first was on the Navigator of the Seas in 2013 (Med cruise). Loved it. We stayed in the AFT family suite.
    Feel free to ask me anything and I hope I find some answers here as well. I'm not a die hard who has written everything down, but I'll share what I know.  Thank you all in advance.

    Hello Royal Caribbean Board Members!
    I am a cruise and travel lover, and want to be always exploring new places! I will be sailing on Symphony of the Seas at the end of July, and am lucky enough to be doing a back to back sailing for a grand total of two weeks on what seems to be an amazing ship. I plan to be doing a (Semi)live blog about my adventures on this board, and would love to have others follow me. 
    Ever since I set sail in the Caribbean on Adventure of the Seas, I have fallen in love with the water, cruising, and sailing in general. This addiction has let me fuel my traveling needs, and am always to suggest a cruise for a summer vacation. I live in the Great State of Texas with my two parents and my faithful dog named Chewie (yes, Star Wars).
    Please don't hesitate to ask questions about me or about cruising in general! This an amazing blog and board community, and we are all privileged to have a great team to do this, especially being exclusive to Royal!

    @Lovetocruise2002 that is the same exact price as the cruise planner. Thanks for sharing!
    and thanks to everyone for your thoughts. I’ve decided to just wait and see how it goes.

    CruisinUngs reacted to Blondie511 in First time teen cruiser says......   
    In am returning right now from Harmony of the Seas. ¬†It was our first cruise ever! ¬†My hubby and I took our14 year old son, and I just wanted to share his first time with the teen club, which was VERY important to us on our vacation. ¬†The first night, there was a meet and greet in the club, and he said that it was PACKED! ¬†The kids seemed to exchange Instagram addresses, phone numbers etc. the first night and then arrange to meet up throughout the week in groups of 5-30 kids. ¬†He had a blast! ¬† The kids met for lunches, dinners, Flowrider sessions, and the late night dance parties were amazing he said. ¬†The Hush silent dance party with the headphones was the best party of his life he said. ¬† They had games like Battle of the Sexes, which was a boys vs girls very competitive game, karaoke, and many other events. ¬†They had an ice skating party, which required long pants, so pack those too! ¬†My son is pretty outgoing and had no problem making lots of friends and tearfully told us this morning that he had the best week of his life........ ¬†my hubby and I felt like we had a ‚Äúdate‚ÄĚ with it being just the two of us for the majority of the week, so keep that in mind parents! ¬†To sum it up, have no fears about your teen making friends and finding lots of kids to do fun things with all week! ¬†Have a great trip! ¬†

    Hello all!
    Amanda and Lam here! Been reading and absorbing the thousands of hints, tips, insights and reviews on this blog.  This is by far the best forum for cruising I have come across and so glad its RC specific! (Matt and team: you rock!)
    Cruising Anthem on Nov 25th with our¬†3 year old son. It will be our first cruise and the threads¬†here are¬†what helped us pick our ship, dates, departure port, etc. We have done the all-inclusive thing but never cruising. I like to plan (like a lot of you on here) and make sure we can get the most bang for our buck. The advice you have all given has saved us over $2000 in "First Cruiser" mistakes- no joke. It really is easy to let the price get away from you. Things like the insights¬†on if drink packages are worth it and rebooking stuff in the cruise planner when there are sales have been game changers that we¬†would have not known about if we didn't learn it here from you wonderful ppl! ūüôā
    The live blogs are my favorite posts on here. They are informative and help scratch the cruise itch by living through others. My goal is to pay it forward with a live blog once I am on the ship. Its an 11 day cruise and my first one with our 3 year old so it might be a lofty goal but I am going to try!  From what I have seen Anthem tends to have an older demographic (hope this doesn't offend anyone but its honestly a top reason we booked the ship) so hoping a family with a young one provides a different perspective. 
    Thanks again to everyone! We hope this is the first cruise of many to come!
