  1. What's the going rate for a Long Island Iced Tea? Love them!
  2. Let me know when you get back. Yes, the ship docks 4 miles out from the port - what a hike! They have transits to and from. Good cruising!!
  3. I would agree with Ocho Rios, but I'm going to put Progreso, Yucatan and that 4 mile pier at the bottom of my list. Maybe Progreso has gotten better, but years ago it was terrible.
  4. I agree @twangster and @WAAAYTOOO are correct. I've been docked in Nassau on Freedom and the Ship's casino was open. Odd, few and far between, but it does happen. This was just after the reopening in Sep 2021 which may explain it.
  5. @brittanymWe're on this one too. Did you get the excursions that you wanted? 2 weeks until we sail!
  6. The first letter in this post mentions reservations in the Orpheum, and the 4th letter would suggest Enchantment. Makes sense; smaller ship, fewer suites, less chance of crowding in the CL.
  7. Here's a link to the current Suite Class perks if that helps: https://www.royalcaribbean.com/faq/questions/what-are-the-benefits-of-royal-suite-class My thoughts are $3000 extra is more than "usual" for JS to GS1. You may want to change to a different Harmony sailing than you are on. I noticed that the difference is more like $1300 on the May 13th 2023 sailing. Whatever you get - have a great cruise!
  8. $ 9.75 and $12.00 in 2011. I think before then it was discretionary just envelopes and as you like to tip. Too long ago to remember for me.
  9. We have a 10:30 for Explorer in Sep 2022. Had an 11:00 in May 2022 for Explorer and waited about 10 minutes to start boarding.
  10. @smokeybanditHow long did it take for them to issue a new SetSail eDoc package after they awarded the upgrade? How close was that to your sail date. Just wondering about timing. Thanks.
  11. @RCIfan1912 What turned the tide to make 150 your favorite? Have Harmony in Nov and was thinking of booking 150.
  12. By any chance, does someone have the current Lunch Menu for Giovanni's on Explorer?
  13. Same for us. 6 on Brilliance from TPA canceled, looks like we'll change it to Enchantment if that ends up being the choice from TPA.
  14. Wishing for the 'good ole days' when all we worried about was Norovirus, those were the days.
  15. Hi again Whitsmom. We made it back from a 10 night on Freedom with no problems! Just had to do a couple of nose swabs for the back to backs - negative. Ship was about 20-40 percent capacity - smallest 1191 to 2609 largest - holds 4375. Masks were on and off (sorry about that) - most wore them some did not - was really not a big deal since we were outside mostly or eating/drinking. Really nothing to do ashore - mostly closed at Nassau. Stayed on the ship and just glad to be sailing again. Talk later, take care.
  16. Hello whitsmom! We are in Miami today, going out on Freedom tomorrow if all goes well. Vax done, Check-in complete, antigen test done and negative, health questions answered; now let's see if they'll let me onboard.
  17. I wish Everything was Cruise related. Can't give up hope!
  18. https://www.royalcaribbean.com/crown-anchor-society/program-updates Also got this last week in an email from the suite concierge: As we return to service, some benefits and services have changed. To follow new health protocols and better manage the flow of guests in terminals, the check-in process will be different. All guests will be required to select an arrival time in advance via the Royal Caribbean app. However, suite guests can enjoy Flexible Arrival — a new program allowing the freedom to check-in up to one hour before or after your scheduled check-in time while the terminal is open.
  19. I'm all for the chance at a RoyalUp. YOLO; go for it. The part I don't like is the "small print" in the terms. The terms and conditions of your original cruise booking will remain in effect following the acceptance of an Offer or if an Offer is not accepted. This includes terms and conditions pertaining to cancellation, penalties, changes, the Crown & Anchor® Society. Accepted offers will earn Crown & Anchor points at the original stateroom category purchased, and not the category of the upgraded stateroom. Upgrade does not include any additional promotions. If you purchase an Upgrade RCI cannot guarantee a specific cabin number assignment within the upgraded category. Your cabin number will depend on space availability. Underlined the unappealing parts for me. (Probably some more).
