  1. They throw even unserved food if not eaten in 4 hours. They would be wasting more food this way, but it's probably a cheap price to pay for our safety in these times.
  2. I certainly love it and don't think I will be cruising again until they bring the buffet back. It would also be the time when it's safer to travel and these restrictions are lifted. Cruising is all about the freedom and relaxation of a vacation, which other dining options don't provide. I tried specialty/main dining once but didn't feel like it. I like to feel free and relaxed with what I wear and how I eat all my meals. And by the way, I don't like those who fill mountains of food in their plates and throw half of it. I actually do the opposite, I fill many smaller plates and I keep
  3. I found your previous blog on Serenade, unfortunately most of your great photos are deleted, but I got this nice summary:
  4. I would have loved to know your opinion on how smaller ships compare to an Oasis class when there are limited choices for activities and dining. Really wanted to see this ship through your lens.
  5. Thank you @Neaxan for sharing your first RC cruise with us and letting us live the experience with you. You were also very lucky meeting @twangster Choosing Symphony for your first RC cruise is a smart choice so you could see the best and most of what Royal Caribbean offers.
  6. Thank you for another enjoyable blog. I imagined myself sitting with you in that shuttle bus as I continue my journey on Serenade for the next 10 days. Is it possible to share with us what future cruises you have booked, even if you are not blogging them?
  7. I was searching for you in the Grills among other periscopers videos but couldn't find you. You must have taken extreme precautions there
  8. Can the same WOWband be "re-programmed" and used on a later cruise free of charge?
  9. Is this a standard on all Oasis ships? Does the Soda come with the free meal? Although I am slowly turning into a vegetarian, the burger looks delicious!
  10. I am concerned about the amount of food waste the happens on cruise ships or everywhere else. I hope Royal Caribbean makes good use of it.
  11. Hi Chris, I have been always wondering where the ship staff sleep and how their accommodation look like compared to guests. On which deck are their cabins? Does the captain get a better cabin than other staff? How long is each shift? Do they work 7 days a week? Are you allowed to post videos or photos of crew-only areas? It will be interesting seeing the "other side" of the cruising world.
  12. Is the TV program advertised anywhere? How did you know the schedule of the Captain Updates?
  13. That's like 7 decks up, right? I am starting to like this No-Elevators rule and may follow it on my next cruise. It's even faster for me to take the stairs.
  14. I am very interested in the Escape the Rubicon. Hope you get to try it and tell us more about it. When I tried the Ultimate Abyss for the first time I went so fast I almost flipped and fell on my face on the second turn, I had to support myself with my arm and I got stuck inside the slide because of that, and I had to push myself down. I guess I was doing it wrong as well! I didn't get the chance to try it again but I would have loved to.
  15. Service on Royal Caribbean is exceptional. When I was on Symphony I asked once for a green tea. They don't always have it in Windjammer but the waiter had to go get it from somewhere else on the ship. Took him a long time I thought he forgot about me, but I was surprised when he finally showed up with my cup. That's true dedication! I wish I got his name.
  16. You are crossing the Atlantic Ridge. Any special programs or seminars regarding that?
  17. El Loco is a great place and I recommend it. I tried the pre-made burritos and they are yummy! Loved the Studio B documentary! Twangster Quality!
  18. Didn't know Johnny Rockets breakfast is included in the cruise fare. Also so many people boarded the ship prepared with their Halloween costumes! Captain Rob videos are superb! Gives another dimension to living this blog. But how does someone get a glass block?
  19. Thanks alot for the video! I love captain Rob and love these presentations. I know uploading that video from the ship must have taken ages but very much appreciated sharing it with us. Also I had no problem viewing the photos and they are great as usual! Let us know how rough the sea is after you ventured into the Atlantic.
  20. What's the no-elevator-rule? Have you met twangster yet? If you do please take a photo of him, would love to see him in person!
  21. Your ship photos look better than seeing it in person, and your balcony view is still good enough to watch the aqua show from there if you wanted.
  22. I had a very hard time with communication when I was in Barcelona, most people there didn't seem comfortable with English.
