  1. Yes, they have servers in addition to the staff behind the bar.
  2. I just came off of Explorer. There is technically a 15 minute wait between drinks, but most bartenders do not follow this as long as you are not being obnoxious (and certainly get to know your bartenders, they treat you like royalty). However, about 5 days in on our 9 nights, the lead bartender came back and advised that my hubby, me and a couple we met on the ship, could not order shots and drinks, at the same time ( we were making great use of our drink package). We could only get shots on ice (in hopes we would drink slower). So, the staff at our bar would take our drink orders (after we finished our current drink, and just delay sliding our cards (if under the 15 minute window). Not to say every bartender will do that (if they forget to charge, they get in trouble since they are audited every day, and so are some customers, like us. LOL!!). Have fun, and enjoy your cruise.
  3. Hey all you divers or snorkelers. I am looking for a dry bag or box to keep my things in while at port when we snorkeling( on our own). I want to be able to take the bag or box with us in the water (who knows if there would be a secure place to lock it up at on the beach). What have you all used that worked like it should?? Thanks.
  4. Hey. Going to the ABC's for the first time in January 2020. My husband and I are certified divers and wanted to get reviews for the Aruba Scuba tour. It is a 2 tank dive, but it does not say if it is a boat dive or not. If you have done this, can you tell me, if it is a boat dive (which I am thinking it is), Do you jump off the back of the boat, feet first, or is it one where you sit on the side and fall in backwards. Also, was it worth it or should I consider setting up something private with a local dive shop? Thanks.
  5. When booking my upcoming cruise, I received a dining credit. It does not say it is for any specific restaurant. So, does that mean it will be loaded on my Sea Pass card, like OBC, and then deducted when I make purchases at places like Ben and Jerry's or Johnny Rockets?
  6. Like your aunt, I sailed with Holland to Alaska. It was only my second cruise, and it was nothing like my experience on the Freedom. My husband and I have told many people that we will now only cruise with Royal, and always give very negative reviews about out time on Holland. It left a very bad taste in my mouth, and now charging for a second entree? This is just horrible service to add the existing services offered.
  7. I am planning our next cruise, Vancouver, BC to Hawaii. I am just wondering what does everyone do in Hawaii that has done this cruise? We have never been to Hawaii before, so the only thing I can think to do is dive. The only thing with that is that we have to fly back, so we can't dive the last couple port days. Plus, there is an overnight at Lahaina, Maui. Thanks for any suggestions.
  8. My husband and I decided to explore on our own. Once we got past the vendors, which are super pushy, the streets were not very friendly feeling. We walked around a few blocks, but I felt someone following us. I held on very tight to my husband as I was a little scared. We finally made it back to the gated port area. Took a few pictures and went back to the ship. Unless you are doing group excursions, I don't recommend going it alone.
  9. When I book my cruises, I always have my TA call RC to request the vegetarian menu for me in the MDR. The first night, I don't get the option to order from it. However, at the end of the meal, they bring me the menu, along with the regular for the next evening so I can decide what I would like to order. I place my order each night this way. Some times I choose from the Vegetarian menu and sometimes from the regular menu. Next time you book, you should have your TA, or yourself, call RC to have the vegetarian/vegan menu set up for you.
