  1. Can anyone that is currently on the November 9th sailing of the Allure confirm if Starlink is up and running? If so, your thoughts on the speed?
  2. 8AM. They are only open from 8 until 11am and they sell out fast.
  3. The new terminal in Galveston, pier 10, is being builit to handle the Oasis and Icon class and future larger ships. They will have the LNG capacity. For now, the Allure and Harmony will be sailing out of her.
  4. It would not be the first time RC got something wrong in the Edoc's. When they first released it, it was listing the pier wrong showing the old pier and not the new port 10 pier. They did correct it shortly after that.
  5. That's what I thought also, but in my edocs that I received for this cruise, it said smoking was on the starboard side. I sailed on Odyssey last year and it was on the port side also. I guess it really doesn't matter, just inquiring minds wanted to know.
  6. I will be sailing on Allure and have heard conflicting reports on where smoking is allowed on the pool deck. Some say starboard and some say it's port side. Can someone who is in the know clear this up for me? FYI I'm a non smoker but I do vape. I follow the rules and respect the non smoker sections.
  7. Sailing on Allure in November and would like to see a selection of wines. Is there a link to one or does someone have a copy of a wine list?
  8. There are still a lot of people out there that don't have a credit card, for one reason or another. Some can't get credit at all. A lot of the old timers have never had a card and always paid with cash. I understand your logic and someday we may be a cashless society but we are not there yet.
  9. At the time at the pool, I only had a few $2 bills on me. The main reason I was using them is it's much easier to carry the $2 bills to carrying a bunch of singles. I certainly did not do it to be showing off or a ego boost or to stand out. This thread has made me aware of the trouble the crew has in exchanging them. I will be bringing singles from now on.
  10. On my last sailing on Odyssey while I was sitting around the pool I ordered a drink and when the server brought it, I gave him a $2 bill as a tip. He looked at it and told me it was "funny money" and gave it back to me. I tried to tell him it was real but he insisted it was not. Anyway, it was no tip for him. Has anyone else ran into this problem?
  11. I sailed on Rhapsody first in 2006 and again in 2007 then again in 2012. While the ship is one of the older and smaller ships, it was well maintained and I agree the staff was some of the best I've seen. My only issue was we were staying in a aft cabin and there was a bad vibration coming from the propellers. It wasn't bad, just annoying. On the 2012 sailing to Alaska, they seem to have fixed the problem. While the ship is getting a little long in the tooth, it is still one of my favorite smaller ships to sail on. Having said all this, my favorite ships are the Oasis class.
  12. I was told the edocs and luggage tags should show up at 30 days out.
  13. Did you do your check in on the app? I did, but can not view it on the website.
  14. I was able to complete the check in on the app, but when I go to the website I am not able to edit or view the boarding pass. Been that way for several days now.
  15. Glad to hear you enjoy them. I agree, some are better than others. I for one here in Texas have found several other places with much better burgers. What I did like were the fries and and fried pies for desert.
  16. Is the midnight opening of check in based on ship time? There is a hour difference of ship time and my time zone.
  17. Which is the best to use for check in? The app or the website and why?
  18. That is a very good explanation of what is happening. Having said this, do you believe that RCCL will throttle the speeds on Starlink?
