    Ken23 got a reaction from Matt in Anthem July 4th Group Cruise   
    First, a little background, for my first post here.
    I have been a lurker here for about a year, and greatly appreciate Matt and everyone who contributes here with so much great information.
    My first cruise was a last minute (well, two weeks before) booking to Alaska last August, joining my sister and her family...where I caught the cruising bug big time (the Casino Royale offers helped).
    Last week I booked for myself the July 4th Anthem group cruise, which looks really good, and I have a few questions about that.
     
    Is there a area here for discussion for group members here?  I have seen the FB posting with some comments.
    I have purchased the DBP w/ Zoom (no Surf).  I have read here a few times that people say that the internet on Anthem is very good.  I do not do streaming much (maybe a some youtubes), but do check email, FB, and websites often.  Will I go crazy with just Zoom, without Surf/Stream?
    I have also purchased the BOGO 2 Night Dining package (for the first two nights).  Does anyone know if I could choose Wonderland as one of my options?  I believe when I get on board, I can adjust the first nights restaurant.
    Thanks

    I agree...and have fun!  I'd loved to do back-to-back or side-by-side cruises!

    Last time we did this Uber was about $40 between Miami and FLL. If they drive in the left lane though, Uber added $11 to the CC charge after the fact. Ask ahead of time.
    Your plan is very doable though.

    @Ken23 Royal Caribbean offers a service that will shuttle you from one terminal to the next for free.  We just did this when we got off Indy and boarded Serenade that same day.  Just ask about it at guess services. This service is only for Port Everglade & Miami..  They will take you from one terminal to the next within the same port &  different ports like i mentioned above.  Only to RCCL ships...this includes Celebrity, Azamara and Silversea.

    The quoted charge was for $38 and when done we added a $5 tip. That afternoon (after boarding the ship and before turning airplane mode on) I got a notice from Uber of an additional $11 charge. I questioned the charge and was told it was for "using the left lane". 
    I got the CC to remove the $11 and cancelled my Uber account(it was my first attempt with Uber). Use Lyft now, and am sure it is not without it's own faults.

    The Deluxe beverage package with Voom is the Surf and Stream version. Even if you're not streaming web browsing will be a more responsive with the Surf and Stream package.
    Welcome to the group on both accounts: message board and for the group cruise

    It’s the one with 254 members. That is the one that many of us are on 😉

    That’s a major hassle w/ traffic. Just hop in an Uber and go from port to port.

    I think Uber or Lyft would be your best option.
    Enjoy your cruises !

    Hey @Ken23! Welcome to the boards! 
    So far, I only know of two FB groups for this sailing. One is from the RCBlog event page on FB. And the other is a FB roll call group that many of us are on but not run by @Matt. 
    I am going to pass the VOOM Surf vs. Surf and Stream to someone more techie than me. However, I think the Surf&stream will be a whole lot less frustrating. We always get the surf&stream.
    With the BOGO, you can adjust when you get on board. Make sure you take care of that right away. There have been some reports lately that there are restrictions placed on the venues that you can use the BOGO at. You should be able to use it at wonderland but YMMV.
    See you on board!
