  1. Maybe the reason they have moved so quickly is the father of the baby is a policeman and his friends are watching his back for him and making sure they help with the legal issues while they are in this horrible nightmare situation. This is a very nice family. My son worked with the father for about 8 years. Have some compassion folks! It is sad enough without a mock jury and trial. May we all never feel the pain and hurt that this family is now dealing with and will for the rest of their lives.
  2. I love the Creme Brûlée and order it whenever I can. The cookies are good and so is the ice cream but most of the chocolate desserts are disappointing. We love chocolate!
  3. Go on the website for Park N Go. Use them, not another one. The last one we used, can't remember the name, we waited about an hour and a half to be picked up. While we waited I watched shuttle after shuttle from Park N Go pick up people. Park N Go Port Everglades only should get you there. I paid with my AMEX and it is refundable up to a certain point. Can't remember what point right now.
  4. 1. Regretfully formal nights are getting more and more informal. It is supposed to be a night the whole family dresses up and a lot of families have formal pictures taken that evening. There are has been some discussion that cruisers are seeing even shorts on formal night. 2. You take your luggage to a porter before you enter the terminal. It is really an easy process. It is recommended that you keep a bag with your jewelry, meds and electronics and maybe your bathing suit and change of clothes to carry on to the ship. Don't forget to NOT pack your passport/birth certificates on your luggage you leave with the porter. It will be delivered to your stateroom. Most evenings by 5pm. We usually only carry off one bag and get the rest from the pick up point off the ship. I just read a post that someone had their luggage stolen and was only paid $300 from Royal for their loss so it's up to you whether you carry it off. 3. Tips are included in your beverage package but I know that some cruisers tip above that to those who really provide excellent service. 4. They charge your account daily for the tips, if you didn't pre-pay them. I like to pre-pay ours so our credit card bill isn't quite as high after the cruise has ended. In fact, I try to pay as much as possible before we get on the ship. All our shore excursions are paid for, drink packages, tips on the ship and I also pay for our parking before we even get there. We are scheduled for December and our parking has been paid for a couple of months. 5. There is always something going on somewhere on the ship so she really doesn't have to spend anytime in the room except changing clothes and sleeping. I love to play trivia and play a lot of it on the ship. I love to read so I usually take a book and find a quiet place on the deck someplace and read for a while each day ( and usually fall asleep 😴) 6. Dressing for specials nights is optional. It does make it more fun for you but the decision is yours. 7. There are multiple pools on most ships. The ones with the solarium have a pool and hot tubs for cruisers over 16. There will be other pools, not kiddie pools, that your children can use. 8. There are hangers in your room and if you need more ask the steward for more. There is a retractable clothesline for across the shower. I usually pack a few clothes pins to hang our wet clothes. The magnets come in handy to hand your lanyard with your card, your hat, your sweater, etc. Also, a lot of people take post it notes to leave notes for the kids to let them know where you are or they can leave a note for you. 9. I believe that 3 days is too close to sailing date to make any purchases thru the cruise planner. You could try calling RCI and see if you can sign up for Royal Up on the phone. Hope you find this helpful. Enjoy your cruise. You are there to have fun and relax.
  5. I am fussy about my pillows. Even invested in "My Pillows". I have always liked the pillows on cruises and used theirs and slept like a dream.
  6. Royal puts your sea pass on your door. The paper pass that you print has the code on it for your drinks.
  7. We did Stingray City Experience Plus Two Snorkeling Stops provide by Captain Marvin's last October. Absolutely loved it. The snorkeling was wonderful, not the big groups booked thru the ship and when we were at Stingray City our host gave us feed for the Stingrays. Would definitely do it again! Found them on Trip Advisor.
  8. We have a cabana because I am not into the slides but the rest are and with there being 7 of us we had to buy an extra park pass for one of us who isn't supposed to use the cabana. I like the idea because even though I am not using the slides I can be involved.
  9. We ate at Giovanni's on Adventures of the Seas last October and enjoyed it. We are taking my son and his wife and three grands, ages 8,11,13 and they like Mexican so I will let them decide between Giovanni's and Sabor. Thanks for all the help everyone.
  10. Thank you both for your response! I would much prefer Sabor to Johnny Rockets. I will definitely use a different travel agent next time. There have been some great reviews of Michelle on this website so when I am ready to book Alaska I will give her a call. Happy cruising!!
  11. Hi All, We are booked on Allure of the Seas for the Holiday Cruise and we have 3 Central Park Balcony Cabin. We booked them thru a travel agent-first and last time with that one, took a while for them to get the cabin numbers lined up with the correct families. Anyway, when I made the reservations 16 months ago she they that the reservation includes 2 lunches per cabin at Johnny Rockets and a bottle of red wine. Now I am seeing that you have a choice of a couple of restaurants for lunch? Can anyone shed some light on this subject? I don't want to ask the travel agent because not sure they know what is happening. Thanks for any info anyone can share.
  12. This thread is so good! It is nice to know that most of us worry when it comes time to push the button that we have the wrong date, time, day. I am the same way! I have to give myself a pep talk to finally push the send button that it will all be ok. LOL
  13. Mine hasn't gone below $59 yet. We are sailing on Allure of the Seas December 22nd. Probably won't drop much because it is a holiday cruise.
  14. Just flew last weekend and both flights had to check my carry on plane side. No problem with size. Most everyone on the flight had a carryon that had to be checked plane side. Beats paying for luggage.
  15. I second the Maya Chan. It was a wonderful day of relaxation, great food and drinks! In Roatan we did South Shore Zipline and had a blast! We booked it privately and they were sure to get us back to the ship with time to spare.
