  1. Also....now that you have the staterooms, and are paid in full (I assume). Ask your TA to ask them if now you cancel the "extra people", who Royal now cancel the whole reservation now it is paid in full.
  2. If getting a shot the night before, another option could be get a proper Bloody Mary the night before in a full service bar (not sure on Brilliance which would make the best one) and put it in the fridge in the room (if Brilliance rooms have the mini fridges).
  3. Hopefully there is not a tank with live lobsters. Could be more entertaining than pier runners catching the ship.
  4. Glade to see the Slide Safety Rules #1 "recommended" was NOT followed. I know I would have also. Daddy has to make sure the slide is safe for his daughter after all.
  5. I am also on the March 5th sailing. I would think in the next few days Royal will likely make some changes...my guess is they change the home port away from Shanghai for a few weeks or more. @AnnetteJackson is it too early to have @michelle asking Royal to change my March 5th sailing to something else?
  6. Anybody from the July 4th Anthem group cruise see the 20 or so shot glasses on this table now? Some things I can't unsee.
  7. I have done it twice and highly recommend it for "active type" people. They assign positions on the boat with the guests as the real crew, working the sails, winches, ect. Some positions are easier (in charge of the drinks cooler handing out the drinks) than others. As Twangster said, it's lots of fun, and something unique you won't find elsewhere.
  8. As others have said, Royal does not want to cancel any port (or Coco Cay) stop, but the safety of the passengers, crew and ship is a priority with Royal. To get a good idea of anything brewing weather wise for a upcoming cruise, I like to watch/follow the Facebook page of Royal's Meteorologist. His public page is "Chief Meteorologist James Van Fleet". He usually posts a few days ahead of any upcoming storms or issues they are watching. Safe travels, and have a great cruise.
  9. Kristi, thanks for this great live blog and all the pictures. It is getting me more and more excited for my upcoming March Spectrum "Best of Japan" cruise. I have a Jr. Suite booked, but put in a Royal Up bid for a Grand Suite and another full suite. Two questions about your Grand Suite... Did that include Zoom wifi? Does the full (Grand) suite include the reserved seating to all the major shows? (No reservation needed?) Thanks
  10. It's getting real now. Some from the group are already arriving into San Juan. See ya all on Saturday.
  11. Thanks for you Live Blog @KristiZ. I am on Spectrum in JS in March, and am curious with all the differences.
  12. I will be on the O inaugural cruise. Still debating with myself if I should do a B2B.
  13. Looking forward to your posts...and ty in advance.
  14. Actually, I have 43 right now. But with my 7 night going solo on the 7 night Blog Freedom group cruise, and then doing a 8 nighter in March in a Jr. Suite, both of them I should be getting double points, which will bring me to 73. And 7 points short of Diamond.
  15. I was thinking the exact same thing. Last week I was plotting out my points, and upcoming cruises. I think I need another 7 day (or a 4 day going solo) cruise from April through November next year, which should not be too hard to accomplish.
  16. It is the crispy chicken sandwich from the Snack Shack, which I believe there might be more than one location on CCPD. Note, at the SS, there is more than one chicken sandwich on the menu, so make sure to order the correct one. @Solus Lupus as far as the other food on the island, it is good, but I wouldn't try and sneak food back on the ship. Depending on which ship you are on, there are likely as good, if not better food on the ship when you get back. You won't go hungry on any RC sailing.
  17. Or send each announcement to all staterooms on the in room telephone voice mail systems. This likely could easily be implemented on all ships quickly (IF anyone from RC is reading this.) To add to this, could also add it to the phone app for people to listen to them in a quiet place.
  18. Also to note if flying into Newark...not sure if this stat is still correct, but back in 2016 United Airlines controlled 70% of the flights into EWR. To some people, that might make a difference.
  19. As a former general manager of a JR on land, glad to hear they still do the dancing (and saw earlier the ketchup smiley face). I have the UDP on the Freedon GC, so I am sure to check out JR a day or two for lunch. I am just now binge reading this live blog, thanks and great job Ashley.
  20. Thanks @KathyC for the great write up, and answering questions. I have my first Celebrity cruise on Equinox in two days, and am excited about it. The lower key factor will be good for a change, especially with some of the people on the trip.
  21. @Lovetocruise2002, I am curious, do your girls (or the older one) read your live blogs when they are not on the cruise? (BTW, great live blog.)
  22. It might just be to charge to your Seapass card and paid by a credit card with real good benefits (as long as you are Prime or above and are not charged the 5% fee by RC). Might even bring home extra cash. I get triple points for travel and restaurants on one of my cards, so I have no problem using that for all my RC stuff, including getting cash from Casino Royale.
  23. Thanks for the heads up @twangster. Fortunately my one RC cruise I have booked I already purchased VS&S.
  24. And you will likely get offers for additional select free cruises. Casino Royale sends a mailer every 6 - 8 weeks, plus you can also get them in a email also. Depending on your level of play, it could be for a inside, ocean view, or sometimes a balcony stateroom. If you like the higher level staterooms, upgrades are usually pretty reasonable.
