  1. dont ruin your trip due to feeling obliged to over drink to "get your moneys worth". You likely spend $2k+ to be on a cruise, seeing ports, perhaps more on excursions. Dont spend half a day or more hugging a toilet. There is no cure for a hangover. hydration is important, but mostly it works because if your drinking water, you are not drinking alcohol. drink to a pleasant buzz, then maintain. Cruises are a blast, make sure alcohol doesnt ruin it.
  2. oh wow, yeah, my cruise is $52 for a day pass and $472 for a cabana. As best as I can tell based on cruise itineraries, our ship is the only one in cococay on that day, so perhaps that drives the pricing for these things, 2 ships could support higher prices on limited cabanas.
  3. the multinight dining packages typically have a dollar cap on them anyway... so perhaps chops was going to exceed that dollar cap and would therefore be more valuable being fully included? could be, though it wouldnt explain that price gap either way.
  4. even if you dont plan to get off the ship, better to have ports, it will be less windy, and WAY less crowded if your stopped and everyone is on shore. Even for cost, I assume theres a docking fee, but probably less than fuel costs
  5. after staying in a central park balcony, I wish that was a larger pool instead πŸ˜•
  6. the waterpark ones might be small, but they are *relatively* cheap. they come with 6 free guest passes to the park, thats worth something north of $300. which for my sailing, means the tent is only about $200. Maybe not cheap, but less than the others. Of course if you dont have 6 people to take advantage of those passes, than its a much worse deal. we decided to be frugal, we figure we would rather be nomads and go wherever we wanted, atleast the first time we went anyway. chairs are apparently plentiful.
  7. my cruise is in September and I cant remember a time that the drink package wasnt on sale for $49. might have been a day or 2 between at $52... Seems like the sales pop up every single week, and the worst "sale" is the BOGO50, so not like that was an exclusive offer. It will probably go on sale again before you sail.
  8. That is exactly what it is, 25% off. but 50% off 2nd one looks like a bigger discount. Just like groceries that advertise buy 3 get $3 off, because simply saying $1 off doesnt grab your attention. You will notice the banners have BIG 50% text, and much smaller "buy one, get one". Thats not a happy coincidence πŸ™‚
  9. is this that popular? $420 for 2 people on a 7 day cruise You can conclusively value the free lunch at $50 and 2 internet keys, worth $150. still at $220 for early embarking, and a private line at ports of call? yeah, private seating at shows and some extra hours on flowrider/rock wall. Thats still a lot...
  10. "up to" can mean many things, in your case, I guess it means less than the discount was when you last shopped.
  11. seems like the lengthening just adds a bunch of staterooms, without increasing the size of the dining or theater. As a cruiser, does not seem to be in my best interests.
  12. luckily they always use a fairly distinctive coco cay picture for any cruise porting there. So you can relatively easily scan through all carribean destination cruises for anything with that pic, and then glance for labadee.
  13. yeah, in reality, I do the wine bottle thing, its pretty fool proof, I always carry my luggage onto the ship myself, because I dont want to wait for it or risk something happening to it. wine comes with, they glance at it for all of .3seconds and on our way. Most cases, I feel confident I could smuggle 3pounds of cocaine in my backpack... but Im good with just 1.5l of rum
  14. In addition to the symphony cruise listed above, 1 more 5 night in 2021 😞 https://secure.royalcaribbean.com/cruises/itinerary/5-night-eastern-caribbean-perfect-day-from-miami-on-explorer/EX05MIA-3097495613?sail-date=2021-03-21&currency=USD&wuc=USA&ecid=sl_mdt_shrdln__4645
  15. Harmony in September has been 49 or 52. On the bright side, refreshment package is at $20, which is a pretty good deal IMO. $10 a day over the refreshment package. worth it for the bottled water and a mocktail or 2 per day. If some rum appears in my shampoo bottle and finds its way into that mocktail... so sorry!
