  1. How is the noise when coming into port in the balcony rooms all the way forward etc? I know we have been all the way forward in OV cabins and had a lot of noise there from the motors/anchors whatever it may have been when docking, otherwise no noise though
  2. Looking up cruises to use FCC on and noticed the GTY rate for the balcony cabin is a decent amount cheaper than picking our own room...has anyone had a bad experience with the GTY balcony rooms? Is there really a “bad” balcony room on a ship like Freedom? They’re all ocean view right? Thanks!
  3. Thank you, I think this is what I was noticing as the difference in the pictures...how does the cove style compare to the glass balcony? Looks a little restrictive as far as view maybe? On the other hand looks a little more private
  4. Not sure if this had been asked before but I didn’t find anything...is there a difference in the balcony rooms on the Voyager class ships compared to the other classes? Say Freedom or Quantum etc. When looking at the pictures the Voyager class balcony rooms look different, from the outside of the ship, compared to ships in other classes.
  5. Not sure they would be able to, Canada closed down until July, Bermuda isn’t accepting ships through May I believe, only option would be doing something to Coco Cay and Bahamas (that’s assuming those places are open by then but highly doubtful) but that’s usually a 7-8 night sailing, so my guess would be that cruise will be canceled unfortunately
  6. We had ours saved on our phone for our most recent cruise and we printed them just in case and the guy that did our check in at the port asked for the hard copy...not sure why but glad we had them. I’m not sure what they would’ve done had we not had the printed copies as we had the electronic copy on our phone and our passports, but at least we had the paper copy and just handed them to him and we’re on our way.
  7. I was actually surprised with how long the paper straws held up for...then again, I didn’t tend to let a drink sit around for too long either
  8. Not sure what the pricing is for your cruise, but with our recent cruise the cost of the refreshment package was just slightly more than the $13 a cocktail costs without the DBP. If you think about it like that, and you plan on using the DBP “to the max” as you said, you could purchase the DBP for you and the refreshment package for your mother, and more likely than not still save money and come out ahead, plus anything she uses her package for would be a bonus on top of that. Depending on the cost of the DBP per day, you probably only have to order 4-5 cocktails a day to break even, not to
  9. We did this itinerary on Enchantment for our honeymoon, but just out of Miami not Galveston, and we personally enjoyed the itinerary. Enchantment is definitely an older ship, and does show the age in some places, but we still had a great time and if Enchantment was doing an itinerary that we wanted to do I would book again. If you’re planning on drinking more than 4-5 drinks a day the drink package is probably worth it for you, plus you can use it on Coco Cay. We told them it was our honeymoon prior to boarding and they did little things to help us celebrate, like decorating a plate
  10. With the most recent change, Port Canaveral and Coco Cay are set at the originally planned times, Nassau has been cancelled
  11. Yea just saw that, hoping they stick with this itinerary now, guess we’ll see
  12. With boarding at 1 tomorrow now, what time should we get to the port?
  13. We got an email from Royal as we were pulling into the cruise port this morning, it was kind of a little unorganized at the port with employees not really knowing a whole lot of details, but they’ve got us in a hotel for the night, we’ll be boarding tomorrow with a little bit of OBC for some drinks :)...it’s not ideal but what can you do?
  14. I'm on this same cruise (getting excited)...I don't remember where i saw it, but I'm pretty sure the formal nights are day 2 and 7...with Broiled Lobster Tails on the menu for day 7.
