    Any "secret" places to go or things to do that aren't published?

    We learned to make reservations for My Time Dining for breakfast. The Windjammer was CRAZY in the mornings, especially on port days. You could get a lot of the same menu items as the buffet in a much less crowded and crazy environment. A relaxing way to start the morning, and we loved that. We also enjoyed the card room on deck 14. A great place to play games as a group. Usually not busy and quiet.

    We are traveling with a group of 24.  June 11th,  Did you notice if groups were around? We also have a 3 and 6 year old in the group which we are finding is creating problems with vaxx non-vaxx status.

    Any others in same situation??

    I saw a few large groups. I understand traveling with vaxxed and non-vaxxed can make things a headache for sure. Maybe things will change before you sail.

    Did you try specialty dinning?  What was your favorite?  Did you have any issues booking a reservation, we have the ultimate dinning package and plan on eating at a specialty restaurant almost every night if possible.  

    We only did one. It was Chops. The food was amazing and the service was impeccable. I booked the time before we left on the RCCL website.

    I am sailing on the Symphony in 27 days. I am still unable to book entertainment. Do you remember how far out you were able to book yours?

    You can only book it once you board the ship and connect to their wifi. You can not book it prior to boarding. Maybe only if you have a star class suite.  Anyone feel free to correct me if I am wrong. 😊

    Did you have a lot of excursion options through Royal? Our Symphony cruise isn't until the end of June, so a lot can change, but hoping the excursion options increase by then.

    I felt like we had a good array of options to choose from. We did all of our excursions through the boat this time. Maybe more will start showing up a little closer to sailing like 3-4 months out. We were happy with all of our excursions.

    Glad you enjoyed the cruise, we are so looking forward to our first Oasis class, Symphony cruise. Did you have an issues booking shows and any advice on who to see or where to go when you first board. Is it simply a process via the app? We had a bit of FCC so we splurged to a GS, so I think the concierge could book it. We board Laye January, so I think the capacity would be close to near normal by then and we want to see all the shows. Also, can you see the Aqua show more than once? 

    I would book your shows first thing when you get on the boat. Reservations were gone by the end of embarkation day. I did not get all the times I wanted, but feel if I would have done this first thing I would have had a better outcome. You can also book by calling or seeing someone at the box office as well. I found the app to be extremely easy to use for this though, and it keeps you out of a line. I believe your concierge could book as well. We were not in a suite. I could only reserve a show once, but you can always stand in the standby line. Show up 30-45 before the show starts and you should be able to get in. Flight and Hiro were great. The Ice Skating show was just ok. That is only my opinion though.

    Welcome home, glad you had a great time.  Can't wait for our NYE (Eastern Caribbean) sailing on Anthem in three weeks.  What was the passenger load percentage on your sail and was the Windjammer open for dinner?  Thanks and stay safe.

    4009 passengers, not sure on the percentage. Windjammer was open for dinner. Seating in the Windjammer could be difficult as not every table was available due to social distancing.

  8. Could you possibly post a picture of the list of all the shows and times. We board in 36 days, and I am a major planner. 🤣 Can't get here soon enough. Also can you make reservations before you board or just on the ship. We don't have a suite, just a balcony cabin. Are reservations even necessary with the lower passenger counts? Thanks for being willing to answer questions.

    I'm not sure that I understand the question. When online check in opens, you can check in immediately. People have reported check in opening just after midnight on the day that it will open.  If you're asking what boarding times will be available, typically right now it's noon, but it may vary.

    Thanks! We open at the end of the month and was wondering what time on that day we could check in. I am a planner, so I will trying at midnight. This cruise has been in the works for a long time thanks to COVID. Super excited! Thanks for the information. 

  10. I reached out to Royal Caribbean via Facebook Messenger, I too have lost my card in a recent moved. I sent them a picture of the document I received from our health department that showed my two vaccinations and asked if it would be enough to replace the original card. They replied quickly with a yes. So they are quick to respond. I will be screenshotting the message and bringing it to the port just to cover my bases. So I suggest reaching out to them via FB messenger if you are looking for a quick answer. Hope this is helpful.

  11. We are less then 90 days out for our Symphony of the Seas in December. Check in was available once but now when I look at the app and online it has disappeared and says it is not available? Is the health screening the same as check in? I think when I saw it before, I got a 1:00 pm time for that. A newbie, and very confused. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!




  12. My husband and I found a great deal on a Voom Surf and Stream internet package for 4 devices. We would use two, and are hoping to let the a couple cruising with us use the other two, and split the cost.  Is this a problem? They are not on our reservation. Has anyone ever done this and how did it work? We cruising for the first time on the Symphony. I am SO excited! Thanks for any advice?
