  1. I wish this was my case, I worked it out for our cruise in jan that between two of us we drank 198 alcoholic drinks in a week. On top of this we also drank 49 soft drinks and 38 bottles of water. We sure got our money’s worth. I think I could only do DX after that week, I love lager too much!
  2. Not much to be honest, this was our first cruise and the first day we felt a bit but then it was fine. Felt more after we disembarked haha
  3. I was there a few weeks ago on Allure, we were off the ship by 9 ourselves. We didn't do the waterpark but the oasis lagoon etc was open. Be interesting to see the correct answer. Apologises for not being a help.
  4. Looking on booking back-to-back cruises for 2022. Do you get discount on drinks package as its back to back or just the standard cruise planner discount? Thanks
  5. We done deck 8 room 326. Second to last. Really quiet, and peaceful. Only 2 decks from Promenade. Perfect location. Middle of the ship.
  6. Be at the port around 2030 gives you enough time in case things go wrong.
  7. In the UK if a bill comes to £65.54 for example, you give them £66. Thats the only sort of tipping we do. Obviously some times you might give them an extra £5 but its very rare. The price is the price. Hence why I don't agree with gratuities personally, the company should be paying its employees the correct living wage and not having them rely on gratuities. On my recent cruise I tipped the room attended $15 as she was exceptional. The bar staff got a $1 tip after every 4th drink in the same place and the waiter/assistant waiter in the main dining got $10 each as they served us every night. Gratuities are a big no no in my opinion, a bit like a service charge on a bill. If they want you to pay extra then include it in the main price from the offset.
  8. I cancelled my pre paid gratuities and instead tipped accordingly to the waiter directly etc. Then again I am European and tipping is not something we do over here.
  9. I was on allure and I took my own hdmi cable and popped RC out and mine in, worked perfectly every time for Netflix etc.
  10. That’s certainly more expensive that a one week all inclusive holiday. i really find some of the pricing to be very expensive.
  11. Just came back from some of those ports. Cant recommend the royal catamaran snorkelling excursion in Cozumel enough. $80pp including food and drink for the duration. In costa maya, take a taxi to Blue Kay beach, stunning beach although you might want to take some food and drink with you from the port as they don’t have much to offer at the beach.
  12. Yeah at the time of booking there was a promotion on RC website. The cruise should of been £2126 so we got just under 1k off. If I remember correctly we booked it in July online and as we were sailing in 2020 we ended up getting £500pp off.
  13. Hi Kristiz, That was for the whole two weeks. Personally I think that's really expensive. The cruise was £1318 for both of us without drinks package.
  14. Hi all, Just came back from my first cruise on Allure Of The Seas...she was a dream. I can see why so many people cruise. We are looking to book another cruise for next year back to the Caribbean. I'd just like to know how much it roughly costs pp. Sorry for being intrusive I'd like to know so I don't feel like I'm over paying. UK to Miami 2 nights in Aloft Airport Miami 7 Nights on Allure with balcony Deluxe Drinks Package 1 night in Nuvo Suites Doral 4 Nights in Doubletree Hilton The Gates Hotel South Beach For two people it roughly worked out with spending money £2k each. We cannot afford this next time. We'd like somewhere around £1k each. I'd sacrifice a balcony but only for a window room. When booking Allure it was only £35pp to upgrade to a balcony. Thanks for your help
  15. No as both people in the same room must buy the package. If one person in the room gets the package then everyone gets the package.
