  1. Hi friends Would our google chromecast work on the stateroom TV? So we can at least let our kids watch on big TV rather than on our phones? Thanks in advance
  2. hi friends, we now have 61 members in our FB GROUP ROLL CALL. Welcome to join us there too. just search FB for - Ovation of the Seas - September 17, 2020 but don't forget to include the HYPHEN to make sure you're in the right group see you all!!
  3. wow! our cruise BASE PRICE suddenly went up by US$ 400!!! yahooo this gives RCL the opportunity to offer a BIG BLACK FRIDAY DISCOUNT tomorrow of US$ 400!! fantastic savings!!!
  4. Guys Are the menu's diff for lunch vs dinner? I saw that lunch at JAMIES is USD 25 and dinner is USD 42 Why is this? Thanks a lot Eric
  5. hi friends I can't quite understand RCL's fine print on this issue we have 2 children both under the age of 5. We wish to purchase the Unlimited Dining Package. But SHOULD we still purchase for our children since they supposed to be FREE OF CHARGE anyway? Hope someone can explain clearly super thanks eric
  6. hi friends, we are first time cruisers and want to try out the UNLIMITED DINING PLAN. However, we also want to try the MDR, WINDJAMMER, etc... would it be a good idea to book all our nights at specialty restos JUST TO MAKE SURE that we have a reservation.... and then on certain nights, if we dont feel like eating at specialty, just dont show up and go to MDR instead? is this something people often do? is there a penalty imposed if we dont show up for our reservation? we don't want to be an ASS about depriving others of their chance to eat at specialty restos. i would gladly call them and cancel my reservation if im sure i wont be going ... hoping for your enlightenment 🙂
  7. hi friends is it possible to NOT get our luggage immediately after we debark the ship on the final port of destination? my idea is to leave the luggage with RCL for 4 to 5 hours while we go exploring areas nearby the harbor so we are luggage free. Then go back to harbor after 5 hours to get luggage and take taxi to our hotel. because our hotel is about 1 hour away from the harbor, im thinking this could be a good way to at least see the nearby sights before having to drive so far away is this DOABLE? will they dispose of our luggage if we dont immediately retrieve them? or will they keep them safe like in the airports when you dont immediately get your luggage they will store it safely somewhere right? hoping someone could reply much thanks eric
  8. thanks so much CHESSE4, i will look into these links MAHALO!!!
  9. hi friends is there any way or place in the cruise terminal of honolulu, that we can temporarily store luggage safely? if we can do so, then it frees us up to go exploring nearby waikiki for about 5 hours then come back to cruise port to retrieve luggage and take taxi to our hotel which is about 1 hour away .... it makes a lot of sense to do this IF THIS IS POSSIBLE im having a hard time to get some information on luggage store right AFTER DEBARKING from RCL ship... hope someone knows something 🙂
  10. thanks for this very informative reply, will duly consider this
  11. hi friends i apologize for not making it clear. Actually in LAHAINA - MAUI, RCL - OVATION of the seas is scheduled to be there OVERNIGHT. We arrive on 9/25/20 at 7 am and depart of 9/26/20 - at 6 pm that's why im considering to take a 7 to 9 hour EXCURSION up the mountain for the sunset views and dinner. but the tour operator said we will be back at port between 10 to 11 pm so im just worried on how we can get back to the ship if we arrive at that time? the ship won't be leaving until the next day... my concern is i dont want to sleep on the port... hope you can enlighten me much thanks
  12. hi friends i'm a newbie cruiser and planning to bring my family for a HAWAII trip next year. On one of our PORT STOPS - MAUI, i plan to join an excursion for a SUNSET & DINNER TOUR. But it starts at 2 pm, and will last up to 8 pm my concerns are: 1. what time does the TENDER return to the ship? is there a set time for it? how can we get aboard the tender ship IF WE HAPPEN TO RETURN later than their set time? 2. will RCL accomodate us even if we take the excursion trip NOT thru RCL website? 3. has it ever happened that guests were left at the shore overnight to fend for themselves? pls kindly enlighten me MAHALO!!! Eric
  13. hi friends first time cruiser here... we will be cruising from vancouver to hawaii and i can't afford the VOOM package so i thought i will just buy a local SIM card in vancouver and try to use it on port days. is this a good idea? Since i may just need to send some emails and check our bookings like taxi's and hotel to make sure all are in order... If this is possible, which phone company in VANCOUVER do you recommend me to buy the SIM? Since we will be there a few days before we embark thanks in advance eric
  14. HI FRIENDS i'm looking at OVATION OF THE SEAS which was originally made to cater to china market but now its been repositioned to CANADA / AUSTRALIA / HAWAII but im just curious how much asian or chinese dishes are in windjammer... maybe not a lot basing on people's responses
