  1. You will be pretty much assured that anything you buy though the Cruise Planner will be cheaper than on board. Book them at the lowest price you see and if a deal/sale appears on the cruise planner simply cancel the purchase you made previously, all your money gets refunded, and then book it again at the lower price. As to when these sales appear, you've just got to keep an eye out really
  2. Shes going in for her 5 year routine maintenance
  3. Should be fine, Independence uses swipe card rather than RFID for the Sea Pass. So long as you don't punch though the magnetic stripe it'll be grand
  4. Not exactly Shanghai but... https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-china-51314138 As much as I'd love to extend my time on a cruise, this wouldn't be the way I'd want it to happen
  5. Was also able to re book and got a nice price drop. Thanks for the heads up on this
  6. Am I reading too much in to that statement or does that sound sinister to anyone else? If they knew about the camera, what? they would have chosen another window that a camera couldn't see?
  7. Would have to be a hell of a defect, he stuck his head though the opening a minute or so before holding the child up to it If his short term memory is that bad I wouldn't let him watch over my pen, never mind a kid
  8. Can only imagine what it would be like trying to get anywhere with 4 ships docked CHARRRGGGEEEEEE!!!
  9. Thats good to know. I have my band from Anthem and we are booked on Allure after her amplification (hoping she gets the wow band treatment like Oasis did)
  10. Nice, I love a good Tour video, have to say its one of my guilty pleasures to put on YouTube and watch someone walk around the ship Looking forward to it
  11. Wow, that late in the day? Guess they like to play everything close to the chest in case someone cancels on them
  12. I always take my GoPro with me as I think the quality of the videos are very high and the photos can be very good too. In saying that there are some downsides. First would be the low light. GoPro, much like many camera phones do not perform well in low light. Secondly is the microphone, the microphone on most GoPros I've had (I can't speak of the Hero 8 as I don't own one) are fair to poor. They pick up wind and when the camera is in its housing and connected to something like a grip it picks up every vibration. So when you move your grip on the pole that is picked up by the mic The sound issues can we mitigated by buying a 3rd party housing and mic but GoPro made that difficult in the last iterations of the camera by blocking external mics and creating a "solution" which was a $50 adaptor to allow them to work again With all that though I have worked these roadblocks by purchasing some good mounts and the like, I am completely indoctrinated in to GoPros eco system and would not be without mine
  13. So since I heard that our sailing has become this years Presidents Cruise I've been having a look at the previous ones to see what we could be in store for. Does anyone know when they normally start to announce the various Special Guests\Unique events\etc that could be on board?
  14. Ahh ok, so both those cabins are at the very front of the ship, in this case the obstruction would be the Bow that you would see from your window I believe the image below would be correct for those 2, if I got the floor correct You would certainly get a few of the Bow but might not be too bad. Hope that give you a bit more info to work with
  15. That was a good one to watch, not sure if it was the same or maybe a different episode but they did an "experiment" on board where the passengers chose the next port. Basically they gathered them all and the passengers up a coloured ball in a container that signified the next port, depending on the current location of the ship they had 2 or 3 to chose from. Was really good to watch as none of the crew knew where they would be going so once the votes where in then everyone had to scramble to make it happen, the kitchen more than most to try and get food in, and with the price people were paying the food had to top quality
  16. Wow! This really makes me want to do a Christmas Cruise Shame they don't do any over Christmas out of the UK 😞
  17. Have a wee look here, see if you can spot what you're looking for https://www.royalcaribbeanblog.com/cruise-compass?ship=283
  18. Smoking area is on the pool deck. Its on the port side up near the doors to the Solarium Shouldn't have anything to worry about with regards to smoke drifting to your balcony
  19. I just liked having the favourites page, I had 6 cruises in there that I could keep an eye on at a glance to see if the price was dropping
  20. I assume that the Perks you are referring to are ones that come as part of staying in the Central Park Balcony room rather than perks that would have offered as part of the booking in general. These Perks are associated with the room type, its to give a bit more of an intensive to purchase in "internal balcony" on the Oasis class of ships As you are no longer staying in this type of room these perks would then be given to the person(s) that would now be booked into the Central Park Balcony room you vacated.
  21. Theres a question actually now that I see you all suited and booted @CHRIS WONG Are they very strict with you and your uniform/dress code?
  22. yes they do Aww why did you have to tell me that. Well, I know what I'm about to start collecting
