  1. Well, I was all set to go for the Key then I read this on a RC Blog touting The Key "The Key is being tested out on Liberty of the Seas and Oasis of the Seas for sailings beginning November 25, 2018 through the end of March 2019" Is that old news? I very well could have missed an update to it.
  2. Good info! I'm not familiar with Downy spray....is that a soap product?
  3. This is what we will probably do. We were just concerned about our dress-em-up clothes getting abused if we checked them. Sounds like it is the best alternative. Thanks.
  4. What about a garment bag for hanging clothes?
  5. Can you lug a garment bag as a carry-on? Are there limits on carry-on luggage, number of bags, size? Thanks
  6. Probably the same bunch of bottom-feeders that has been ghost-calling me.
  7. Just an FYI, I had the idea early in February to get reservations at the Galvez for the night before our cruise (Dec. 21) because I knew they had cruise parking and shuttle service. They were totally booked up. So I started down the list of hotels that provided parking and/or shuttle and they were booked up. This was for Dec.21 so I'm figuring they are booked up because it's Christmas? Or kids are out of school on family getaways? Some big attraction in Galveston at that time? I was surprised. I did find a room on the freeway coming into town and prepaid Port Parking....but it's not what I intended.
  8. I don't have any info on 81st Dolphin parking but we are using Port Parking www.portparking.com which is indoors and provides shuttles to the terminal.
  9. In the Navy we used to say "Go to the fo'c'sle to see where we are going; go to the fantail to see where we've been." It's just a matter of preference....or maybe perspective.
  10. I'm not an over-dresser by any stretch but I also don't like to feel under-dressed.....(think everybody is noticing and talking about me) so I bought a new suit for the cruise and will wear it on formal night in the MDR and my wife's birthday dinner at Chops. My wife is talking dress for these occasions. On other nights at MDR I'm going to wear a sport coat with jeans and nice shirt (wife is talking pant suit). Shorts and tee-shirts the rest of the time.
  11. Looking for in-depth reviews for these two excursions that we have flagged. If you've been on one or both would appreciate replies! East End Sights & Garifuna Culture, Roatan, Honduras Lamanai Mayan Ruins & Riverboat Safari with Lunch, Belize City, Belize
  12. Thanks all! I'm way beyond being embarrassed by my ignorance but I'm wondering if I will hit OVERLOAD before the big date gets here. What's funny is my cursor has been less than an inch away from CHECK-IN hundreds of times and I missed it. There is a wealth of knowledge here and friendly, helpful people so maybe this steep learning curve will eventually level out. Thanks for the help!
  13. Please someone explain what "checking-in" is referring to in this thread. I have the Cruise Planner going. What else do I need to do to "check-in"?
  14. Maybe Mom and daughter in Ocean View balcony stateroom, Dad and boyfriend in the second. Bonding opportunity? Dad and/or boyfriend could drop by and use balcony occasionally. Are you dealing directly with RC or using a travel agent? A travel agent knows things you don't on how to find vacancies. Good luck
