  1. Most of the info you get depends on the type of room you have. Grand suite and above requires few advanced reservations. The are dedicated reserved areas of suite guest. I believe the comedy show will require reservations for anyone. Like most have said on here, don't try to do everything. Relax, take things at a reasonable pace and enjoy yourself. Remember your on vacation.
  2. I thought one of the advantages of a TA was for them to call RC and iron things out!
  3. If you are looking to climb the C & A ladder quicker you might look into a Jr. suite next time around because you cruise points double. We did that years ago and now we are diamond plus members. Sometimes the Jr. suites aren't that much more than a standard balcony room. The Jr suites are bigger, nicer bathrooms, walk in closets on Oasis class ships, and getting on and off the ship is sometimes quicker. Keep price checking and you could bump up.
  4. A pirate goes into a bar and the bartender says: "Long time since I've seen you , man, you look terrible". The pirate says: "I feel fine". The bartender says: "Well, you didn"t have that wooden leg last time I saw you". "Well, I got into a battle and a cannon ball hit me in the leg, but I'm ok" "Well you didn't have that hook on your arm either". The pirate says: "Got in a sword fight and lost my hand". The bartender says: "What about the eye patch?" The pirate replies: " Well a bunch of sea gulls flew over the boat and when i looked up one of them crapped right in my eye." The bartender says :" How did that make you lose your eye?" The pirate replies: "It was the first day with the hook".
  5. How many lawyer jokes are there? 2....the rest are true!
  6. We have been to most Caribbean islands multiply times so cruising around at a slow pace and maybe stopping at Coco Cay and Labadee would be ok to begin with. I think the hard core cruisers would be satisfied to just cruise around at a snails pace and enjoy the ship.
  7. Will my wife have to pin the note to my shirt just before check in?
  8. Like Twangster said, its not just the big guy we bail out but the LARGE supply chain that gets bailed out also. Something simple like milk, goes back to the small dairy. When the auto industry was bailed out, they ended up paying back the government with interest. It wasnt just given to them free and clear.
  9. Just got back from 4 day cruise to Mexico and back on the Brilliance of the Seas. Not sure anyone will care to hear how it went since no one will be RC cruising for at least the next 30 days. Didn't seem like anyone was sick on the cruise. Washed my hands about 49,000 times, give or take a few.
  10. Yes there is so much free hidden entertainment on a cruise. We like to get a chair at the Cafe Promenade and watch the people fight over the dime store watches when they have the big watch sale.
  11. As many times as you want but the most important part is getting back on time. The ship will leave you if you are not back on time. If you are one of those that are never on time, a cruise is not a place to be late. Google "Pier Runners" and you will see what I'm talking about. People stand on their balconies on the pier side just to watch and jeer the pier runners.
  12. I agree with many on here about over doing it. Unless you drink a lot I would axe the drink package. You will have to average 5-6 drinks a day to break even and take into account your port stops. When you come back on board at 4pm now you will have to drink those 5-6 drinks. After 6 straight days of at least 5-6 drinks a day it will take its toll. I also am happy with MDR food. Is it up there with the specialty dining food. Probably not but the MDR is still very good. Give it a try (with an open mind) and if your not happy then your next cruise go for the ultimate package. Is the ultimate package a good deal? Depends on whether you like paying twice for a meal. You already paid for the MDR. Since this is your first cruise you will find there is so much to do on the Harmony you could have overloaded. Step back and look at it all. Remember your on vacation. Relax and don't try to do too much. Like I said there will be plenty to do on the Harmony
