  1. What sodas do they have in a can? Do they have diet Dr Pepper?
  2. I remove mine when I am not cruising. I like to have it to check the schedules of what is going on.
  3. That would be a definite plus if they would eliminate the smoking. On our last cruise we didn't gamble at all because of the smoke and almost got sick walking thru the casino because fo the smoke. And on Adventures of the Seas it doesn't stay in the casino, it was rising up into other areas of the ship. Would love if they would eliminate the smoking in the casino before our Allure of the Seas in December with the family.
  4. It is usually a lot less crowded on the excursions which because we like to snorkel is important to us. Also usually less expensive. For our zipling we were able to do more tricks than the ship excursion allowed. I always make sure they have 5 star reviews and are a reputable company. Their reputation relies on them getting you back to the ship in plenty of time so we never worry about being late getting back to the ship.
  5. We cruised on Adventure of the Seas last October and the Internet was fine.
  6. Have done one Christmas cruise in the past and had a great time. This year we are doing Allure of the Seas over Christmas with my son, DIL and grands and really looking forward to it. We have never spent Christmas with them before so it will be a special treat for us.
  7. I just checked my cruise planner and they are still offering the unlimited dining package but it does state "Holiday Celebration Dinners are not included with this package." ZI am looking forward to the cruise but with a 8,11 and 13 year old will be doing main dining and windjammer on this cruise.
  8. Hit the yellow button to load more choices
  9. I can pack it 2 days. My husband takes a month. I think about it for months so when it is time to pack I know exactly what I am taking and just have to pack it. We do lay everything out on our dining room table and have it set by day. I write the day on a note card and put clothes with that day. There are some great packing lists for cruises on Pinterest that you might find helpful.
  10. We live north of Greenville, SC and have driven as far as Fort Pierce and the hotels are less money (It was $100 last October, I can't remember where we stayed but it was clean and comfortable). Because we are meeting my son and his family this time and they are flying in, we are staying in Fort Lauderdale at $200 per room. We are leaving our car with Park N Fly ($123 for 7 days) We watch them come and pick up people for 1.5 hour the last time while we waited for our parking company to come and get us. Have fun!
  11. Has anyone done this shore excursion? I have 3 grands ages 13, 11 and 8 that will be doing it with us and want to make sure they would like it. I usually book my own shore excursions not thru the ship but with the very limited time in San Juan feel I need to book thru them. Thanks for your help.
  12. 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.
  13. 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!
  14. 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.
  15. 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 yo
  16. 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.
  17. Royal puts your sea pass on your door. The paper pass that you print has the code on it for your drinks.
  18. 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.
  19. 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.
  20. 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.
  21. 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!!
  22. 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 th
  23. 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
  24. 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.
