  1. We did not like Grand Bahama...(maybe that's why RC bought a big hotel their) Nassau is much better.
  2. I do it right away but I don't print my Set Sail until a week before, in case there are any changes or I still don't have a room assigned.
  3. On our last cruise we had 1 cabin the first week and internet worked great but the second week we moved to another cabin and the internet was spotty at best. The access point was too far away...in general internet works great around the ship but in room access is a bit hit and miss.
  4. Last year the Black Friday sale was quite good, I think 30% or 40% off the regular price. Also the day you board they have drink package deals maybe ask someone that is doing the same ship to give you what deals are being offered.
  5. I think this is one of the few times that being Canadian is an advantage....no tax on Casino Winnings.... Now all I have to do is win....
  6. We did 4 weeks on here last year from Venice all the way back to the US and we really enjoyed our cruises. The crew were awesome, the food was great and we met some really great people aboard. The ship is in our opinion in great shape and well looked after. Enjoy your cruise!
  7. The issue is it may delay the boarding, we were involved in one that did delay the boarding until noon. I think its just to cover themselves in case all does not go perfectly during the inspection. Enjoy your cruise!
  8. You will be boarding Galveston. TX and those sailings have a lot of C&A members (more than 50% of the ship) so depending on the time you arrive at the port you will actually see the new cruiser line or anyone under Platinum level (this is the level you start to get priority boarding at) will be much shorter than the priority line. A couple of weeks ago we arrived at 1pm and it was like this. If you get to the port very early they have a waiting area upstairs that you wait at with a number, once the ship is ready for boarding (10:30-11am aprox.) they call out the numbers. (first to board are Back2back cruisers, Suites and Pinnacle members and then it goes by your numbers which are on a first come first serve basis) Enjoy your cruise!
  9. I also herd they were going smoke free inside the ships (no more smoking in the casino and the cigar lounges are all being converted to something else) There will still be smoking outside. I think Celebrity was the test and soon we will see this on more Royal ships.... I hope it's soon.
  10. The best is to go with an open mind and make the best of whatever situation arises. The idea is to enjoy your vacation and not hang on small details. Things happen on every cruise! Enjoy your cruise!
  11. I like the new wear you best thing. In the end people will wear what they want anyways why use the word formal.... If I'm eating in a restaurant with my wife enjoying a nice meal, why would I care if some is at the next table in a tuxedo or slacks and a polo shirt.
  12. I asked a crew member about currency once and the reply was "we love tips in any currency".....I'm sure they have ways to exchange money between themselves, with more than 60 nationalities working onboard.
  13. But we do have the FREE health care....😉
