  1. Jewel of the Seas, February of 23....yeeees.
  2. Lost luggage is not to bad anymore, I work at Cincinnati airport, bags are scanned now, they know how many bags are on the plane, tight connection are the biggest concern , we also use the porters , skip the lines inside and go straight to security. To us its hard to do carry in for a cruise.
  3. Here is a simple, cheap thing to try, works for my wife, an elderly Asian lady told my wife, don't laugh until you try it everyone, a band aid over the belly button. Works great for my wife.
  4. We have did horse back riding twice, they bring you back to a small rodeo, a decent ride by bus to the horse farm.
  5. We was on a cruise a few years ago, everyone back home was worried, it was the smoothest cruise we had, we kind of trailed it, did a reserve stop on two islands, they was concerned we might have to stay at see one day as it was headed to our port, we was even allowed to make a phone call on the Royal phones from stateroom, as it turned out, it missed Florida , thank goodness. Royal is usually on top of things come hurricane season.
  6. First cruise in a while, last three canceled by Royal. We are already excited.
  7. We have used Royal on all excursions except one time, you pay a little more, but they guarantee you getting back on board, if a bus was to break down or something happens and you use Royal, they will know about it and wait, if on a private tour, and something happens, you might miss the ship, for us, ill pay a little xtra for that peace of mind.
  8. Honduras, not even close, won't go back there.
  9. Well fellow Kentuckian, we noticed that as well a few years ago, I don't have an answer, but the cruise was different, lots of country music and cowboy boots, we enjoyed the cruise out of Galveston.
  10. There in February next year, also thinking of this tour, please let us know if you enjoyed it. Happy cruising.
  11. Wow, so sad, feel for the family, on a cruise, enjoying life, blessing to the family.
  12. For us, it depends on what time our flight leaves, if we have a late flight and in no hurry, we send it the night before, hang on the boat as long as we can and not worry with carrying bags around except for carry on. If we have a early flight and want to get off ship early as possible, we keep our bags, usually one bag a peace with rollers, our next cruise, we have to get back to Orlando, so we will keep our bags. Good luck making your decision. Happy sailing.
  13. Sorry, hit the wrong button, I get it, we lost our cruise for the 29 th for the third time, just doing a key west trip instead.
  14. We was very disappointed our cruise on January 29 th on the Jewel was canceled, we was still going, but had concerns about not getting in at ports, waiting three hours here locally for a covid test and hope you test negative, then keeping a mask on inside all the time, which was no problem if that’s the rules, we was flying into Ft Lauderdale, it’s cold in Cincinnati area, we think we are now going to keep flight, rent a car and spend a few days in Key West, one of our favorite port stops. This was our third cruise that was canceled, we was meeting our cruise friends from Napa Ca. That we met a few years ago on a cruise, plus two other couples, that’s what is so disappointing. Good luck to all the cruisers, we will try again in the fall is our hope.
  15. Dang, I feel bad for you all, what a disappointment. Good luck.
  16. We was on the 29 th of this month, this is our third cruise that’s been canceled, already canceled our ride to port and back, now need to work on motel and air, I’m not even going to try and call Royal today, will be a long wait, we are just going to get a refund this time., maybe try in the fall, guess we will be enjoying the cold and snow and the Ohio river views of Cincinnati from Northern Ky.
  17. I know you are from Cincinnati area, stay in the sun, light snow here and ten degrees tonight, brrrr.
  18. Very informative, have an awesome cruise, we fly out of Cincinnati ( Northern Ky ) in three weeks to cruise, calling for 5 inches of snow in Cincinnati Thursday, so good timing.
  19. I have never used a debit card, but don’t they do like the car rentals, they hold something like 500 dollars to cover things, I’m not sure, if you have credit card, just use it, much easier and less confusing. Enjoy your cruise.
  20. This kind of happened to us, in the end, somehow, they had two different accounts for us, they combined them to make them correct, well almost correct, somehow my wife has two more points than me, we have never cruised separately, I didn’t bother with getting it corrected, good luck on getting it straightened out.
  21. So tired of the cdc and unloading on the cruise industry, there is 70,000 fans indoors at a bowl game, no mask seen, but that’s ok..
  22. We use Howard van service, have used him many times, we have cruise scheduled late January, we are flying into Fll and staying in Ft Lauderdale, I have him reserved, 7 of us, 107 dollars from motel to port, he has 9 passenger van and pulls a trailer, nicest guy ever, he will be early, I priced a couple other places, most around 175 dollars, look his reviews up, 5 star, everyone is 5 star. I have his cell number if you want to send me an email on here.
