  1. Wondering if there are some places on Rhapsody to catch NFL games during our cruise beginning tomorrow. Anybody know?
  2. I know; I'm just wondering if anyone has experienced it and can say whether it was enjoyable and whether an 8 yo and a 15 yo will enjoy it.
  3. Has anyone done the "Island Roots, Honey and Chocolate Traditions" excursion from Cozumel? Wondering if it appeals to adults and to children.
  4. I think that's what's going on with Rhapsody as well. She's arriving from a repositioning cruise from Barcelona. We are so excited about this cruise we can't stand it! We first sailed on RCL in November 2017 (Empress of the Seas to Cuba), and loved it. Earlier this year we sailed on a Disney cruise and really didn't enjoy it nearly as much, though it was more than 2-3X the price. So being back with RCL this week is awesome, and we already booked another 3 night cruise on Mariner in January. Thanks for your perspective!
  5. We are sailing on Rhapsody of the Seas, leaving this Saturday. We had indicated in our online check-in that we planned to board between 12:00-12:30. Based on suggestions I've read here, we had planned to arrive about 10:30 in hope of boarding earlier. This week, we received an email from RC stating that our check in is now an hour later--1:00-1:30--due to a routine Coast Guard inspection. Does it still make sense to arrive early--say 11:30 or 12:00 noon--to get a jump on the checking in process in hopes of being some of the first to board the ship? Are the inspections sometimes completed early, in which case boarding begins sooner? Thanks for any advice!
  6. When I sailed on Empress of the Seas in November-December 2017, I seem to remember being able to check email and log into the online learning platform at my college (I'm a professor there) free-of-charge. Is that still the case, or is there an hourly charge now? I'm sailing Rhapsody beginning the 23rd of this month.
  7. Hi, My small family and I are going on Rhapsody of the Seas in 10 days, and are booked in an oceanview room that adjoins another stateroom. I noticed on the room plans that oceanview staterooms tend to have a vanity/desk opposite a sofa between the bathroom and the bed area. How does having an adjoining door generally affect the use of space? Does it mean we lost the sofa? We're also booked on Mariner of the Seas in January. We purchased the Deluxe Beverage package for both cruises. The Rhapsody cost was $45/day for a 7-night cruise, and the Mariner was $69/day for a 3-night cruise. Are the packages generally more per day on shorter cruises, or is it possible we will see a better price on the Mariner package at some point--perhaps Black Friday? Thanks for your thoughts!
