  1. there is a good feeling when your coming back from a port day and your ship looks the coolest.
  2. luckily my next trip in Feb the hotel offers the test at the hotel. I need a beach and to be warm and to not look at my house for a few days
  3. a teleporter up to the Wind Jammer
  4. we have a tripped booked to Punta Cana in Feb she may get to go alone
  5. wife gets her shots next week I am so far down the list its scary
  6. So I was looking at the flight I have purchased for after our July cruise its on a Saturday at noon from Miami. It turns out we have the only 5 seats purchased for the flight. the rest of the plane is open. this flight is usually very full past makes me wonder what others know that I do not.
  7. I did my first dive in early April near Chicago we had to break a small layer of ice to get in. It made the water in Hawaii seem very warm
  8. also diving can get very dangerous so you want o make your training has your full attention
  9. nothing personal but I would do the training at home where you are not distracted. there are plenty of local dive shops that would help you no matter where you live. Enjoy your time on the cruise and even go diving on it but get your certification before you go. That my personal thought as a diver for over 30 years
  10. I would go with 7 and focus on fun ports 4 days are over to fast. A oasis class ship may overwhelm you
  11. nope not in a suite. I was hopping more for a idea of what days would be best to go to each
  12. This is the group to help me out on this I am planning on getting the ultimate dinning package. What would be the best days in the trip to book the Upcharge restaurants plan on getting some sushi snack and some late night snacks from playmakers. I like a good dinner the first night and we will probably go to the MD on lobster night 150 Central Park Chops Grille Hooked Seafood Izumi Jamie’s Italian Playmakers Bar & Arcade Vintages Wonderland Day 1 Departing from Miami, Florida hotels Day 2 Sea Day Day 3 Sea Day Day 4 Philipsburg, St Maarten Island, Dutch Antilles Day 5 Saint Thomas Island, Charlotte Amalie, USVI Day 6 Sea Day Day 7 Coco Cay, Bahamas, Royal Caribbean Day 8 Arriving in Miami, Florida
  13. So this is for before the cruise. We plan to visit some relatives the day before and are going to fly in rent a car then return it right before the cruise. was planing to drop the family off then I run and drop off the rental car.
  14. Not so worried about transport to the port just do not want to fight my way back to the airport on my departure date when all the cruisers are heading to the airport.
  15. is there a good place to rent a car so I can drop it off near the Miami terminal or do most people just do it at the Miami airport?
  16. the one thing that also came to mind would if we cam get the room between us as it only holds 2 people. and move our rooms next to each other
  17. Did a lift and shift and got a amazing deal on a symphony of the seas deal for next summer. We have 2 rooms and it was supposed to be me and my wife and three kids along with my father in law. it turns out that my father in law may not go. the arrangement are for my wife and i to have 1 kid in a room and my father in law with the other 2 kids. It would be really nice if he did not come to just move the one kid out of our room and into the room with the other 2 kids . by the way the rooms are not next to each other there is one room between. Do I cancel stuff ahead of time or do I just wait and not have him show up for the cruise. any experience with this would be helpful. Rebooking it is not a option as we are paying less than 500 a person for this cruise.
  18. So we have a extra person who now wants to go on a cruise we lifted and shifted to next year. the room will accommodate that but the issue is how do they calculate the rate for the extra person.
  19. I had a feeling Tuesday night my freedom of the seas trip this July was going to be canceled. So my wife and I started to look for replacements in 2021. It turns out no ships are sailing out of San Juan next summer. So we made a list of wish list of trips of cruises we would like to go on and if we could get any of them we move the trip to next year otherwise we would just get our money back. The #1 trip on our list was symphony of the seas July 10th but the thing that worried us was the same cabin we have on symphony goes for 2200 per person per week compared to the 800 per person we paid for the freedom of the seas. Our thought was lets ask they can say no and we can move on to the cruises lower on our list. So I call at 7am CST prepared to wait a long time to get someone. I work my way through the phone system and finally get into the que for the next available agent and within 30 seconds I am talking to someone. I explain that I want to lift and shift to her and she says great and she pulls up my reservations and she says let me see what we can do for you. At that point I ask how about the symphony of the seas July 10th she thinks a second and says I am not sure I can do that for you let me talk to my supervisor. She then puts me on Hold. i was on hold for 45 minutes as she was waiting to get in touch with the appropriate people. she was nice and about every 5 minutes come back and give me a status. finally she comes back and says we can do it the only problem is that the room types do not match up nicely so instead of a spacious cabin I would be getting a large balcony cabin. I was all over that since we only have 3 people per room and I love to sit on the balcony. So then she started to change the cruise for me. The change went slowly as there was issues with some corrupt reservations so that took about another hour of being on and off hold. the entire call took 90 minutes As sad I was that we will not go this year as planned I am very excited to take my family on the symphony of the seas next year as that cruise would have been out of our budget. Long and short of it is ask you may be surprised at what you get.
