  1. Great...We were waiting for this. Just booked the Rhapsody for a 7-nighter to the Greek Islands. Going to the Allure in Fall 2020, will be interesting to see her after the revamp. Was on the Allure back in 2011. But we also love the Rhapsody. One of the smallest in the fleet. But she has her own charm, that's we why chose to sail on her in 2021 (and also did a cruise with her this year).
  2. Thank you for your answer. Looks like actually I wasn't completely off with my wish. Just wanted a plate of Sushi Rolls each at the (empty except for one table) Izumi and then a starter and a steak at Chops. Still ended up paying for Izumi, since I really got tired of asking around (and everybody said no). But - if it's as you stated - I should have gotten what I planned then. But - as you also say - it looks like it depends on the ship and the staff. But that's too bad, I think things like that should be communicated clearly to the staff from the top management. Like this some get what they p
  3. Hi there, contacted Royal twice about my experiences with the Dining Package on the Rhapsody. One time I didn't get an answer at all, the second time - this time through Crown&Anchor - I got one, but my question hasn't been answered anyways. I hope you guys can help me out. Here's what I'd like to know / what I wrote: "Hi, We had a fantastic - almost perfect - Greek Island Cruise this late September/October on the Rhapsody. Wonderful ship, great ports, fantastic steaks at Chops Grille and really good live music all around. Could go on with the list and name lots of wo
  4. Thanks a lot! Didn't think about the compasses. Found some cruise compasses quickly....got some ideas now. Thanks for your help.
  5. Hi, just came back from a Cruise on the Rhapsody (Greek Islands), after we loved the Rhapsody so much the year before. We already booked a Cruise on the Allure for September 2020. 7 Nights Mediterranean (from Barcelona to Mallorca, Provence, Pisa/Florence, Rome, Naples and back). The last time we've been on the Allure was back in 2011, so I'm excited to revisit her after her upcoming overhaul in November. But now for my real question. We booked the unlimited Dining package this cruise and were happy about it (except Chops Grille was closed for a private event the last night!). T
  6. Hi guys, came back a week ago from the Rhapsody (Greece& Croatia Cruise). Loved it and already booked for next year. Just wanna give some feedback and forgot one of the Bartenders name. Did a great job at the Pool Bar. Anybody remembers his name? Must be between 45-50 years old, wearing glasses. African-American or maybe Dom. Rep?? Thanks for any help.
  7. Hi, came back from our cruise and just wanted to give you some feedback about our experience. The shore excursion we booked on the ShoreBee website worked out perfectly. Did cost us 15 Euros each. Departure on time at 8.30am with a boat directly from the port to the Oia port. From there a quick bus ride up to Oia. Arriving at around 9.45am. Then we had time to explore the town completely on our own. Buses back were at 11am, 12noon, 1pm and 2pm. No reservations needed, just show up about 15' before time. They have enough seats and busses ready for the transport to Fira (about 20'). From
  8. @Traveler Thanks for the additional info. That's very helpful.
  9. @Matt Hi Matt, thanks for you reply. Yes, I'm referring to the official embarking time I got on my check-in papers. They gave me a time-window (11.30 - 16.30). But in Ft. Lauderdale it was always possible to show up earlier than the official time (window) - but it's been a while, maybe that changed. I just wonder if it's possible to do that in Venice as well.
  10. Hi, going on a cruise with the Rhapsody this month on the 29th. The last few times we embarked in Ft. Lauderdale and were always able to get on the ship early. I wonder if that is also possible in Venice. Officially it starts at 11.30am. I really like to get on the Rhapsody as early as possible, even though Venice is very nice (but we'll stay here for a few days after the cruise). Maybe anybody has some experiences with the embarking process in Venice? Thanks for any help!
  11. Hi, going on a Cruise in September / October this year. Not our first cruise, but it's been a while. And it'll be our first time in Santorini. Arrival is at 7am, departure at 5pm. I checked the shore excursions with independent time in Oia. But it will only give us 90min in Oia. And we really wanna spend more time there. There are busses and of course taxis from Fira to Oia. Which is the better option? Any company I could (or should) book in advance? I know the cable car up to Fira will take lots of our time, so I wonder if it is worth to travel on our own or is the shore excursion s
