Pinnacle (7/7)



  1. Take a peek at this recent related post... Matt provided a link to a company that provides scooters, wheelchairs, etc... My MIL is 83 with mobility issues as well and we may need to look into this company too!
  2. ... at least (knock on wood) they didn't have a fire today (Carnival Freedom)... or some sort of chemical fume issue (Carnival Magic)...
  3. Yes, we drop off our heavier carry-ons at the Key check-in table (usually in front of the MDR) as soon as we board the ship. We then use a smaller/lighter bag (sling bag in my case) so we have any items we may need before we can access the cabin. The carry-ons are tagged and will be delivered to your cabin and will not be accessible until the cabin is ready.
  4. Jenna just posted this yesterday... https://www.royalcaribbeanblog.com/2022/05/12/8-mocktails-try-your-next-royal-caribbean-cruise
  5. I'm not sure if you can make specialty dining reservations in the MDR (I would love to know if you can), but you can certainly make specialty dining reservations at any specialty restaurant. Additionally, you can make all of your reservations for specialty dining at one restaurant... no need to run around to each restaurant. When we last purchased the 3-night dining package on Oasis back in OCT, we made all of our reservations at Chops Grille shortly after we boarded for Chops, Giovanni's and 150 Central Park.
  6. We prefer to dine at "normal" dinner times regardless of dining location... 5:30-6:30 PM. It seems the ship tends to disembark most ports between 4:00-6:00 PM and we always get back an hour or so earlier giving us time to change, etc. We adjust and play it by ear when the ship is in port longer. By dining at the earlier/"normal" dining times, we tend to go to the 8:00 PM and later entertainment/activities. Just our personal preference.
  7. Have an amazing time! Usually, there is a check-in table for the Key just outside the MDR (at least on Quantum and Oasis class). I would ask one of the crew members when you first board Indy for directions to confirm which deck the Key check-in table is located, etc. You should see many signs/banners referencing the Key as well as you navigate the ship. Once they check you in, they'll ask you for any carry-on bags that you would like tagged and delivered directly to your cabin (so you won't need to drag them around while you wait for access). Usually, the Key lunch is right there in the MDR and features selections from the Chops Grille lunch menu... delicious in our experience. Just a guess, but I believe the lunch hours are typical lunch hours (11-2 or so), but they will be able to confirm the exact lunch hours and answer your questions at the table when you check in. This was the Key lunch menu back in FEB on Odyssey... sometimes they offer the Wild Mushroom soup instead of the Butternut Squash soup...
  8. ... or if you mostly need USB charging capability for your electronic devices (4.8/5.0 stars - 16.8K reviews - $29.99)... this was recommended numerous times on this forum and we personally use this on every cruise. There may be other versions of this hub that support USB-C, etc., if you need the additional flexibility. I use this to charge all of our iPhones, iPads, GoPro, Apple Watches, device batteries... all you need is one outlet in your cabin... Amazon Link: Anker Charging Station / PowerPort
  9. Yes, you should be able to book every evening for My Time dining through the Cruise Planner. Only issue is the offered time slots currently start at 6:45 PM on most sailings. We booked the 6:45 PM slot for our JAN 2023 sailing the moment dining opened up this week, but later in the week decided to call Royal and switch to early traditional dining at 5:30 PM which thankfully was still available. Even with My Time we generally like to book the same time on most days which allows us to request the same server team and table for at least those evenings.
  10. That is a good price. We purchased it on our last cruise in FEB on Odyssey for $109... the lowest I've personally seen it listed on past cruises was $99. If you want that dining package, I would purchase it now... you can always cancel and repurchase at the lower cost if the price drops even further in the future (all can be done through the Cruise Planner). It's currently listed at $120 ("normal" 20% off pre-cruise rate in the CP) for our next cruise in JAN on Wonder.
  11. Just confirming that the earliest My Time slot for our JAN 2023 Wonder sailing is also 6:45 PM. The dining just opened up in the CP for us this week and we checked immediately.
  12. 100% agree with @SpeedNoodles! We get back at least one hour early... you don't want to be this couple...
  13. Yes, still offered for both of our sailings on Wonder in 2023 (one of the few items showing in the Cruise Planner). Just posted a week or two ago at the insane price of $41.99... If it gets to about $20, we'll purchase!
  14. Our go-to first drink is a Lava Flow with a float of Kraken!
  15. If you booked through Royal, I believe you can also change it on the Royal website through this link on the bottom of their main webpage… so I’ve heard… I could not get in since we have a TA… … However, I was able to access the guest info when I logged into our friend’s reservation… their reservation is with Royal and not assigned to a TA… did not attempt changes of course! https://www.royalcaribbean.com/reservation/lookup
