Diamond Plus (6/7)



  1. We usually get Junior Suites but on the Harmony and Symphony we get Grand Suites. There is no going back now.
  2. We’ve stayed at the Embassy Suites near the airport. They have a shuttle and allow parking.
  3. I usually get one plan for 2 or 3 devices, my wife forgets the passwords so login all of the devices with one password
  4. If you don’t notify Royal, you may not get the extra C&A points for being a solo traveler. Maybe someone can jump in here and answer.
  5. We’ve stayed at the Radisson in Cocoa Beach several times. The rooms are just okay. They do have some larger rooms with 2 king beds and a pull out sofa bed. The waterfall pool and pool bar are nice though. They also have several shuttle vans to the port too.
  6. You might check with Royal Caribbean special needs and see if they have interpreters available on some ships. I saw an interpreter on the Odyssey last March but they may have traveled with a group. I really doubt they have interpreters available but it wouldn’t hurt to ask. I know from teaching the deaf that amplification does not always help.
  7. Thanks for posting Matt! We had a cabana on South Beach in 2019 back when they were cheaper
  8. We always get a cabin near the aft elevators on deck 8 (Oasis class). We like using the Central Park to get to the forward elevators when we need to. We use the aft elevators the most (Windjammer, MDR, Coastal Kitchen). There hasn’t been noise issues being close to the elevators.
  9. We stayed at the Marriott Waterfront which is close to many things such as Pike Place Market. The Celebrity terminal is across the street. The Marriott had a contracted shuttle service that took us to the port.
  10. We usually book ship excursions too but the overnight stay gives you the flexibility to try something on your own the first day.
  11. We used a Blue Flag taxi (certified guide) on our first day. We used a guy named Millard Lightbourne, an older gentleman that was very knowledgeable about Bermuda. We had him for 4 hours on a personal tour of Bermuda. The trip cost was reasonable and gave us ideas where to go on our second day in Bermuda.
  12. Last February it was Nadja. I got an email on the Monday before the cruise
  13. That’s where I did the discover scuba excursion and got hooked on diving. Our Odyssey trip last month had Grand Cayman cancelled.
  14. Look at your cruise planner for that sailing and see if they have the PADI Re-Activate refresher option. Basically you will do an online refresher class then demonstrate diving skills in the pool on your first full day at sea. It is worth it because PADI will issue a new “C” card noting your refresher class.
  15. We have done 3 double points cruises in suites and will be at 331 points by December. Pinnacle is still a looooong way off though.
