    Good morning, I am going on a Symphony cruise on December 10th. My wife cannot consume alcohol due to medical restrictions and they don't allow me to buy the package alone because she is in the same room as me, I have the medical certificate informing.

    My wife and I are boarding a cruise this coming Sunday and she is pregnant. We are also Diamond members so she had no need to get the Royal Refreshment package. They allowed me to get a DBP and her to get nothing I just had to email the note from her Doctor and the call took probably like 40 minutes on the phone. It was an Actual note from the Doctor so not sure what you have but I hope that helps.

    Thanks! So then are they still able to do their own check-in even though everything came to your email?

    So they will be able to do everything themselves when they download the app because they would be pulling the reservation in based on their name and their DOB and the reservation number. It doesn't ask for the email at all. If they already have a C&A number they can then add their C&A number to the reservation during check in or even I believe online when they are making cruise planner purchases.

    The one day will be surf. You could use your one day, then her one day so she has 2 free days and then buy the package for the rest of the cruise. Or depending on the price, you could just buy it on CP. If I have to work, I am just buying the package beforehand, surf is often too slow to get any real work done. Plus, with a full Thanksgiving cruise they might be throttling the speeds extra. 

    Yeah I think you are right. I especially don’t want to go down to the internet desk mid week and have to deal with it.

  4. My wonderful TA @Sharla did explain to me that if you find that what you paid for your room now exceeds what you can get a higher lever room for you can call and they will move up to the higher lever room if there are any available. My example is we booked an interior on Wonder to add someone last minute like a week before final payment date and the price was almost 3k and I figured oh the price could go down closer in but since we no longer can get it adjusted past final payment then if say an ocean view or a balcony goes under 3K before sailing that we could call and move the interior room to the higher category. So at least a reason I have still been watching the price since final payment.

    My wife has them attached to the lanyard she uses for her SeaPass. Mine are in a drawer or three somewhere at home.

    This is me exactly I have them stuck on my lanyard and they really are not noticeable at all. My wife has never opened or used hers I believe she left them on the ship. Definitely to each their own. We got to chatting with a Pinnacle guest in the pub last cruise and they can share some of the best stories of cruising back in the day.

  6. We are going on our next cruise over Thanksgiving on Wonder and we are taking my brother in-law with us and it will be his first cruise. He is not the type that I can just recommend the boards and videos to him he wouldn't take the time to actually do it. As someone who has been on many cruises I feel the need to almost be his tour guide so that he has a good time but I also don't want to overwhelm him with too much stuff while we are on the cruise. 

    My question would be or recommendations I am looking for would be; What if anything do you do when you cruise with First-timers? Just go about your cruise like normal and let them figure it out on their own? Try and do a full tour of the ship on the first day and explain how food and certain things work? Tell him the cruise compass is his roadmap to success?

    I appreciate anything that you all have done to make rookies have a better time!

    Good morning fellow cruisers!!!! I apologize in advance if these questions have been asked before but I am new to RCCL and want to plan the ultimate trip. 

    I am eagerly waiting for RCCL to post sailing for Alaska in 2024, biting nails with anticipation!!!! It will be Hubby 50th birthday. 

    We are considering staying in the Junior Suite with Large Balcony. It is what we can afford due to many hospital bills. So here are my questions.. .

    Is it a noisy location since it is so close to stairwell?

    Which deck is the best? We are considering deck 9 or 10? 

    Can you request a table and chairs for the deck for room service?

    Any other info you can give me would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you in advance... Happy Sailing.

    So I figured I would take a crack at a few of these for you to get you started.

    1.) I always prefer to be close to the Stairwells and Elevators because it shortens your walk time to and from the room and typically I have never had an issue with any sound bleed from the stairwell or elevators. 

    2.) Deck Choice is really for me always depends on where you think you will spend most of your time. I like to have the ability to walk down a few flights if the elevators are busy to get to the promenade or esplanade so I would typically go with 9. But if you think you will spend more time up at the pool then you may want 10 so you are only a few flights down to your room. I typically will go down the steps more often than I will go up the stairs.

    3.) Your balcony will have 2 chairs and a small table on it.

    Other than that just have a great time!

    Does anyone wear their pin? I hear different perspectives on this. If I were a pinnacle (one day!), pretty sure I would wear it out of sheer joy! Gotta admit, I am pretty excited about my first Diamond cruise coming up. 

    Having received my Platinum and Emerald pins this past year I just stuck them on the lanyard that I use for my Seapass Card and that is about the extent of the use they get.

    And let's just say you wanted to kick start your day and have a drink with breakfast... is that cool? Asking for a friend .....

    My first stop after breakfast is usually Cafe Promenade to get an Adult Coffee and if you go somewhere for breakfast you can get something at the table. I will say we just got off of Symphony and we love to eat at Park Cafe, on previous ships at least Oasis had a coffee bar inside of Park Cafe where they could make you drinks with adult beverages. There is no such bar in the Park Cafe on Symphony.
