  1. We love it too! That's why Explorer (2013) and Liberty (2015) were the last 2 cruises for us... and why Anthem (and maybe Oasis next year while she's here) are enticing! We're about 60-90 minutes from Cape Liberty from where we are here on LI. We usually park at the port for the week... it used to run about $200-$225 for the full week. Still much, much cheaper than flying down even on SW from Islip/Macarthur. Maybe one day we'll get lucky and RC will give us an Oasis class ship full-time not just "on loan"! I would love to see Oasis cruise through the harbor and under the Verrazano!😎
  2. Another short list we’ll have to work on! 1. Liberty 2. Explorer 3. Majesty I’m sure Allure (next month) will take over the top spot! The order is also reverse sail date order. Looking for bigger, newer and more exciting these days as you can see! Looking at Harmony, Symphony and Anthem down the line... would also like to try the Amped smaller ships too! Favorite overall cruise to date was our honeymoon cruise on the Disney Wonder. Our very first cruise too! I have a feeling this Allure cruise will take over as favorite overall since we’re going with good friends!
  3. You can verify online order cut-off times while you're viewing any item in the Cruise Planner (it's set to your sail date)... click on the item and then go to the bottom of the page and read the first couple of lines of the "fine print"... For us, with a sail date of May 19th, our online cut-off is 11:59 PM EDT on May 17th...
  4. Thanks, will do! I will of course be one of many following your adventures very closely! I think as a group we'll have Allure covered for the month of May! 33 days to go (32 until we land at FLL)!
  5. ... and we're on the sailing after you! ☺️
  6. Thank you! I didn't check today... just cancelled and re-purchased online... so did the couple we're traveling with... I'm not ashamed of taking another $16.52 off my bill! 😝 Cross your fingers it drops a little more!
  7. We're on Allure on 5/19... fingers crossed no impact or repaired!
  8. It's just not available yet... we were able to book our Nellie's Beach (over the water) cabana in Labadee, almost 10 months out... we're on Allure next month. Just keep checking... we booked it right away when it first appeared to play it safe (had heard on the forum that they sometimes sell out quickly). It went on sale later this past JAN (10% off) and we cancelled and re-booked immediately! We decided to splurge since we're going with another couple. I would be happy with any cabana or structure that provides some shade... can't wait!
  9. I agree 100%! We loved Disney (our first cruise - honeymoon back in 2004 on the Wonder) which set the bar very high, but we have never been disappointed with RC. Not worth the premium and limited ships/itineraries offered by Disney IMO too (and we love Disney/Disney World)... we'll try them again one day for sure, but not until we've sailed on a few more RC ships! Slight tangent... it's crazy to think that an Oasis class ship (225-228K tons) is larger than the Wonder or Magic (83K tons) plus the Dream or Fantasy (130K tons) added together in total displacement!
  10. For our upcoming May 2019 cruise on Allure, the entertainment/show reservations opened up 96 days out from our departure date... The general consensus seems to be that there is no set schedule/pattern across the fleet, even on the same ship... no rhyme or reason, to when options become available in the Cruise Planner! Keep checking and have a great time!
  11. Our dining options (both specialty and My Time) opened up in the Cruise Planner for us 14 months prior to our upcoming Allure, May 2019 sailing (big surprise)! We were able to book excursions, including our cabana in Labadee, 9 1/2+ months out... entertainment/show reservations opened up 96 days out from our departure date... The general consensus seems to be that there is no set schedule/pattern across the fleet, even on the same ship... no rhyme or reason, to when options become available in the Cruise Planner! Keep checking !
  12. I keep it quick and simple and use the Snipping Tool that comes with Windows when I'm on my desktop/laptop...
  13. Oh, sorry for the confusion! I was looking at the OP @Publix1310's itinerary!
  14. I would still try to find a cruise compass with your itinerary and/or find someone that has done your itinerary before to be sure... maybe RC customer service will know... Your Harmony itinerary is a little different than the typical/more common Oasis class, Western Caribbean itinerary (Labadee, Jamaica and Cozumel), since it includes Perfect Day/Coco Cay and other ports. We're going to have to consider that itinerary on Harmony down the road!
