Diamond Plus (6/7)



  1. I was speaking the back of the ship relative to deck 17. We try to get cabins close to the elevators. The last time we were in a CLS was near the elevator so looking at the walk from the elevators to the back of deck 17 seemed like it went forever.
  2. On our Indy cruise in Dec the casino wasn't as crowded as usual, probably due to the ship running at 68% capacity. Everyone were wearing mask by the 2nd night. The first night masks were not required because the casino was vaccinated only. The second night it changed to mask required. I play blackjack but I'm not there thinking I will break the casino so I usually play the minimum bet. The minimum bets went up to $15 so I didn't get to play as long as I have in the past.
  3. We got our Royal Up email on Jan 3 for our Apr 3rd sailing on the Harmony,. I would like to bid on a Loft Suite from our Grand Suite but I don't want to chance getting a cabin at the back of the ship and have to make that long walk multiple times a day.
  4. We also use Jacki and she has been great!
  5. I sailed last month and used a CVS rapid test. Had no problems!
  6. Dec 17th Independence 3 day cruise out of Port Canaveral was night 2. Did not see many people dressed up but then again dressed up for me is blue jeans and a button up shirt.
  7. We were on the Independence 2 weekends ago and we had two RC mask in our room when we got there. We were in a GS so not sure if that was suite guests or everyone got one. We didn't see many of the RC mask around the ship so I don't know it people might have been saving them for souvenirs. They came in a thin sealed plastic package and I ripped mine open before I realized what it was. I saw only one time the mask wearing was enforced. It was at the blackjack table but other than that everyone seemed to be wearing their mask. Not sure about the coke thingie We live in Fl so we drive to the port. Stay at the Hampton Inn close by and left the hotel about 10am for a 1130 ck in time. We used the parking garage for the first time ever and it was pretty simple. Dropped off luggage at the parking garage, parked and was in the waiting area 15 minutes later. On the ship by 1115.
  8. Also make sure the chain of documents (marriage certificate) is a copy from courthouse or county clerks office that will have an official stamp on the document.
  9. Like ChrisK said, you are the one that's paying for the vacation, not the ones that turn their nose up because you are not dressed to their standard. Most nights I dress in long pants (jeans) and a button up shirt (mostly to keep the wife happy) You will see everything from shorts, flip flops and tee shirts to Tuxedos. Your on vacation, dress like you want!
  10. Tie a rope and chain to your Invicta and use it for a boat anchor!
  11. Not only tag everything but put photo copies of your passport, drivers license and cruise schedule in your bags. If they find your lost baggage and they don't have tags your bags will be opened to find out who they belong to.
  12. We did the CLS on the Oasis and it does have the wow factor. The stairs get old after a while so we made extra sure we had everything we needed before we left the room so we didn't have the unnecessary stair climb. I believe the rooms near the elevator are better since it is short walk to CC and suite lounge. Looking down that long hall to the rooms on the back of the ship made the rooms near the elevator even better. The huge shower on the Oasis CLS is great! I'm no spring chicken anymore so I would probably take the OS now.
  13. Started out with simple balconey rooms then made the plunge to a Jr. suite. Stayed in JSs for a while then moved to a Loft suite when we got a great deal on the move up. We haven't looked back since. I guess we use the old saying about you only live once and you can't take your money to the grave. So we enjoy it while we can.
  14. I try to bring shirts (pocket Ts) with a top pocket. I haven't lost one yet.
