  1. Sorry I posted this in another thread but I figured it fits on here very well too: I was also on the cancelled sailing of empress on the 11th of April, as well as the sailing before on the 7th. I could not agree more with Raye about how Royal has done nothing short of slapping it's passengers in the face, who trusted them to keep a schedule. 1000's upon 1000's affected with little shown by Royal to make us feel as if they actually care about our business. So many people, including myself, do not have flexibility in travel dates and can not just switch to another sailing at a later d

Oh, or you could swit
  3. Crown loft or royal loft you ended up with? I believe it makes quite the difference space and perks wise.
  4. Thanks for all info!! To Doc as well!! I think thats a much smarter choice as the OS up front seems to be like 4 times bigger than the aft ones haha. I will see you in the casino! Also am very nervous about that casino.... Wonder if they will even have a craps table. Or a real roulette table... I've seen electronic roulette in some pictures online, but I only do real tables. There are a few other areas of the ship that will be interesting to find out how it will all work, but I won't go into that haha... I don't even know what my room will be like! I plan on emailing M
  5. I have heard of a few things that have been done on a few of the cruises i've been on. The one that sticks out the most and that I witnessed first hand was when several people were not back on the ship at departure time. Forgive me for not remembering the port but I do remember it was on Indy 8 nighter dec 2014..... The ship, of course, has a list of all the passengers that have not boarded the ship as the time for departure from the port of call gets close. In this particular case it was about thirty minutes past when we were supposed to leave and you could clearly tell by watching fr
  6. Waaaytooo, I think its Ray right? Haha I was going to ask what you would be choosing for Cozumel as I've read in your previous posts you've done it all there at some point. April 13th will be my 5th time there and we are debating in doing a beach day like Sanchos, or taking a ship excursion in the caves on the mainland. Any thoughts or experience on heading to the mainland? I've heard horror stories as well as people with no issues in doing this. We are in port 12 hours I think that day, with the excursion saying its only for 7 hours. We should still have some time for shopping and
  7. I have read many stories recently on cruise critic of people being able to book cruises as long as its before 24 hours out.. Even able to do it right on the website. Also, some people have talked about being able to book right at the port as well. Not sure how thats possible if a 3 day rule is supposed to be out there, but there are plenty of people still talking about booking last minute living close to the piers.
  8. Hello friends!! Does anyone know if RCCL offers the luggage valet on the ships sailing out of Miami? Flying out of Ft. Lauderdale as Miami is way over-priced per usual. It would be nice to hang out in Miami during the day of disembarking without worrying about the luggage, as we have a late flight booked.
  9. Yeah there is several threads on cruise critic, some of which were started by passengers that were on the ship at the time. They were basically reporting live about seeing the helicopter searching etc. It was definitely not 3am by the time it was reported to the coast guard, as people on board were reporting the helicopters searching already well before then. Definitely false info from the coast guard release.
  10. I heard that it was just certain "spring break priced cruises" as well.
  11. We will be on Empress this April 9 nights B2B and then Navigator for 14 nights next April B2B 5 night then 9. We really want to try Serenade hopefully between then. Liberty is booked right now in Oct but hoping to change that to Serenade. That ship just looks so classy with all of its new rooms and furniture/carpet ect. I've never done Radiance class!! We will be looking for something on Harmony as well with the new releases. Looking for one of those can't pass up deals. Im sure the itineraries for Harmony will be just as not exciting as Oasis and Allure though.
  12. I sailed on Freedom on the 3rd deck... One of those ocean view rooms just forward of the dining room with the HUGE windows. We absolutely loved it actually. The was my first time below like the 6th deck. It seemed so close to several things such as the Promenade, studio b, casino, and obviously the main dining room. My tiny little profile picture is from in that room. All of our little towel friends sitting in the window hanging out. We used the elevator (which was right by our room) only for going up to the pool deck. Breakfast was in the MDR for us, so it didn't seem like we were on a
  13. Premium Package is only 49$/day company wide. In the US anyways. With gratuity, it is just over 57$/day. Well worth it IMO.
  14. You can use my robe how's that? We get them in our cabin but I never us it. GF loves it tho! P.S. It sort of sounds like you aren't really even going to give RCCL a chance since you seem to be 100% negative before you have ever even cruised with them. Hopefully you get the WOW we all have gotten in the past! Freedom class ships are the best IMO.
  15. I have stayed in a promenade room on Indy, which is Freedom class. Zero noise issues. Can hear the parades yes, but even that is not loud by any means and no music or people can be heard during normal times. Black out curtains keep it plenty dark when you want it to be. Would definitely recommend one of these rooms. Bay window makes it feel as large as a balcony room without the balcony obviously. NO complaints.
  16. Yes, they light fireworks in the promenade and on the boardwalk! So amazing!!! Kidding of course :D
  17. Miami Vice!! (Pina Colada and Strawberry Daiquiri) Made as is is just fine, but we prefer it made with Malibu. SOOO amazing.. :P 51 days....
  18. If the cruise was delayed there would have been an equal or worse amount of uproar from all of the passengers who were delayed. And then the people demanding all of the compensation they are "entitled" too etc ect. Lose lose for RCCL no matter what they would have done. The eventual decision is the most costly one, as we have all seen though.
  19. Chef's Table now also available for 85$ PP on cruise planner for Empress sailings. I have never done Chef's table. Worth the $$??? Those who have tried it, any feedback would be appreciated. Thanks :P
  20. Agreed... sometimes as much as 14$. Makes the drink package pay for itself quite quickly at that price if you are planning on 4 or 5 drinks/day.
