  1. Within an hour to Cape Liberty, so that's a no-brainer for me. As things stand right now, if I were cruising out of FL I would almost certainly take the Auto Train down. Shave a day of drive time (and arrive well rested) and have my car there for an emergency return trip. After the cruise I'd probably just drive back home over two days, saves money and there's less of a real hard deadline as to when I get there. It's not like my house will leave me at the pier!
  2. Good looking out, friend! Was $46 on my August Oasis cruise, just nabbed it.
  3. (But seriously, this is why I love it here, too!)
  4. We're now at $189 adult and $169 for children for Oasis next August. Luckily, I also got in at $79/$59. I've seen huge jumps in almost all of my CocoCay options. Waterpark up to $102, Waterpark Cabanas went from $599 to $999, all the other cabanas jumped between $300 and $500. Looks like about the only thing that didn't spike are the good ol' beach beds, still holding down the fort at $199...
  5. I hadn't ever thought of this until you asked the question! After a little digging, I found a deck plan of Quantum that shows the interior door location (indicated by the diagonal line) at https://www.seascanner.com/deckplan-quantum-of-the-seas. In the example you gave, You'd want 11213 to pair with 11210.
  6. Great googly moogly, the Cruisetour prices are just listed in the "Find a Cruise" searches?!? I'm not sure how I missed that, but I appreciate how polite you were in responding to my ignorance!
  7. Can any of you wonderful cruise experts give me a general ballpark figure for how much adding a Cruisetour to an Alaskan Cruise would run? Specifically, I'd be looking at the 10 Night Family Tundra Express (9 A/B) for a family of two adults and two children, probably in July. Obviously I know there are way too many variables for any sort of precise costs, I'm just looking for a ballpark figure, and I appreciate the fact that the ballpark will be Dodger Stadium sized. This lack of going anywhere all summer has me thinking about what my travel plans might look like for 2023 (not a typo), and
  8. Maybe they reduced maximum capacity for mitigation purposes and that sent the algorithm all in a tizzy? Just a guess. Also possible that a particularly distractive squirrel ran by an intern's window...
  9. Seeing as the industry will probably have to completely rethink the entire debarkation process once cruising resumes, I'd think that it will be impossible to estimate how long it will take to get off the ship, clear customs and make your way to the airport until a few cruises have been completed. Even then, I'd imagine it will likely be a work in progress, with constant "tweaks" to the system.
  10. Definitely glad to see you are still well. I assume that Royal's IT department is responsible for at least some of the maintenance on the transporter units, and, well...
  11. My memory is failing me in my old(ish) age, but I know someone on the boards was in a similar situation where their kid was 12 on the original booking and 13 on the L&S date, and they still price protected it at the child rate. I just can't remember who it was to confirm for you.
  12. An excellent choice as well. I hate raw onions, so I hold the red onion, but have it on an onion bagel...
  13. As a long-time Jersey resident, I couldn't agree with this sentiment any more if I tried! I have no idea how IHOPs even survive here to be perfectly honest (but they do, so they must be doing something right!). As an aside, the Liberty Diner that shows up in a local search for Elizabeth is probably the "diner" in Terminal B at EWR. A diner in name only. An alternate choice, if you're looking for a quick breakfast, you can also look for pretty much any local bagel shop in the area. Not only will any bagel shop in that area have to do pretty good bagels just to survive (standards for th
  14. I am officially requesting permission to steal this phrase. Love it!
  15. Yes, I was referring to a merger, not the widely publicized Healthy Sail Panel...
  16. I haven't heard any sort of rumors of the sort, but the way things are right now I think it would be crazy to rule anything out!
  17. Ooh, I had forgotten about this. An MDR breakfast was the only time I ever had smoked kippers. It was a nice way to change things up a bit!
