Gold (2/7)



  1. I like the idea of tipping nightly at the end of the meal. What is an appropriate amount to leave on the table?
  2. Technically, what is the earliest check in time? Should you arrive early?
  3. I've read through every post...what does MEI stand for? Is this a company? Thanks!
  4. I feel your pain. I suffer from the same unlucky gene of picking slow lines!
  5. We will be going on RC for the first time in May. However, on other cruise ships, I have filled my wine glass in my cabin and then walked to the dining room. They don't mind as you could have walked from one of the bars. It helps save a little bit of money when ordering wine with dinner if you are starting with a glass of wine from your cabin.
  6. I notice that people mention how many ships are in a port. Where do you find this information? Thanks!
  7. I'm the same way. I usually only want a glass of wine with dinner. I am on medication so I am very careful. My husband just purchased the drink pkg and I am getting the refreshment pkg. I was worried if I did decide to have a drink that I wouldn't be allowed or charged for the pkg.
  8. Thanks for the info. I think I would pass if I have to drag it around to each beach that we want to visit. I was hoping they would have them available at each beach. I'm definitely watching for the price to drop so that it wouldn't be such a big deal if we only used them at one beach.
  9. First time going to Coco Cay. I noticed that you can rent a beach mat for approx $20 for the day at Coco Cay. However, does that mean you are limited to one beach or are they available at numerous beaches? We want to explore the island when we are there for the day, and we love floating on the water, but do not want to be limited to one beach. Thank you in advance.
  10. Hi, I actually live in Saint John! I am very familiar with both cities. Saint John is a wonderful, walkable city, beautiful waterfront, great local shopping and beautiful brownstones and parks. Lots of great restaurants and some amazing coffee shops. I really recommend Catapult Coffee & Studio as everything is baked on site, locally roasted beans, and handmade items. We have the famous city market, one of the oldest in Canada. Princess Street, Germain Street, King Street, Market Slip, the Loyalist Buriel Ground, all are lovely walks and close to the cruise port. I know that there is the pink double decker hop on hop off buses running and you can also take day trips to areas close by and in some cases, the trip can be an hour away. Halifax is Saint John on steroids. Much more populated, more shopping, more restaurants, etc. Both are hilly cities, and many beautiful tourist areas nearby. Let me know if there was somewhere in particular you were interested in.
  11. Thank you, I will definitely try that!
  12. We are in the same situation. My husband changed our cruise and now we are stuck with traditional dining. I also found out that we may have to share a table? I am on vacation to relax as my job is stressful. I don't want to have to be "on" while dining. I want to reconnect with my husband. I'm hoping it is an easy fix once we get on board. We have never cruised with RC and this is stressing me out. I like a quiet corner not on top of people.
