    Do you see this option under the one you already bid on?

    This program is a bigger mystery then the club royale casino program. I wish someone would shed some light on it. I’ve participated in the program multiple times and always bid the maximum price (upgrading throughout the suite class range) and was somehow “outbid” once if that says anything. I have won every other time. If you can bet the maximum from CLS to star class and lose then there’s much more to the equation for sure.

    If your hotel is on 17th Street in East Fort Lauderdale then your in close proximity to many dining options both a short walk/ Uber ride. Las Olas Blvd has a little of everything. Here’s a good mix:
    1. Louie Bossi Las Olas. Great scene and good quality Italian food. 
     
    2. Bombay Darbar Las Olas: if you enjoy Indian food I recommend this place. The scene at night is energetic. 
     
    3. Boathouse at Riverside Hotel: Adjacent to the New River you can watch the boats. Laid back for lunch and busier during happy hour. Great chef. Menu = all over the place. American fused with a mix of everything. I had some blackened shrimp tacos that were great. 
     
    4. Le Tub Saloon- Hollywood: 15 minute Uber from 17th street. Made famous by GQ many years ago for America’s best burger. On the intracoastal and quite a scene. The place is made out of reclaimed driftwood. Burgers take some time to cook but the wait is worth it and the beer is cold. Laid back & very casual. I take my boat there at least once per month. 
     
    5. La Bamba 17th Street: Located in the Publix plaza on 17th street & Cordova rd adjacent to Embassy Suites. Great Mexican & Spanish food. Very casual. My kids request the pollo a la plancha every weekend. 

    6. Sistrunk Marketplace: Food Hall. Mix of everything. Great scene and highly recommended. 10 min Uber from 17th street.
    I can go to # 100 if necessary. If your into beer breweries there’s many popping up in downtown. I recommend Koffner Brewery inside Sistrunk Marketplace. American Icon Brewery, LauderAle and Invasive Species Brewery. For a laid back locals scene we all go to Laser Wolf which has a great craft beer menu and an AWESOME taco food truck. 
    Everything in East Fort Lauderdale is pretty much accessible by a 15 min or less Uber and you can even take a water taxi to most waterfront locations.

    Cruising is better then ever right now. I know it’s not realistic for it to stay this way but the reduced capacity is an absolute pleasure (IMHO mask restrictions = acceptable trade off).

    I have won quite a few times and it’s been pretty consistent 2-3 days before sail date when your card is charged.

    tonyfsu21 reacted to SPS in St John’s Antigua shore excursions: Kid Friendly   
    When we visited Antigua in 2019 we did the Stingray Swim & Snorkel and LOVED it! When else am I gonna get to hold a stingray? They were quite gentle and friendly. (The food that's given to them for coming there probably helps!). We don't travel with kids ourselves, but several kids were on the excursion.
    The water at the sand bar where the rays were was only about waist deep so it's not necessary to be a strong swimmer. Except for a couple attempts at trying to look under the water, I don't think I even used the mask and snorkel provided.

    I've been to Antigua once - but we wound up walking off the ship and taking a taxi over to Valley Church Beach. GORGEOUS beach with a little restaurant on it - we had a ball with us to throw around and we just laid down our towels to sit on and it made for a really nice, quiet beach day. Our taxi driver even waited with us to take us back. I'd definitely recommend that route - but depends on if your kids would be happy just with the beach or if they'd want more to do.

    I have to say, it’s really nice having 1+ crew per person as far as service goes. I really don’t mind the lack of crowds at all. I would think that this is going to have a major impact on RC bottom line and my concern would be the overall elimination of the cruise industry as we know it. I suppose it’s better to have 500 people sailing then 0.

    tonyfsu21 got a reaction from SpeedNoodles in Suite Lounges   
    It’s just “limited access”. All this means is you will actually have a nice window seat during sail away and a very attentive suite concierge + drink serving staff thats finally able to cater to you. Often the lounge was so jam packed with suite guests and friends of suite guests and randoms that you simply couldn’t get a nice seat or a drink (in a timely manner). Enjoy the experience because this situation may not last long. IMHO sailing in a suite on RC reduced capacity is now up to par service wise with high end companies like Regent.
