    @CruisingKat(Kathy)My Awesome TA @krhardyfound us a killer group rate for this sailing so my husband and I are coming too!!!

    I just booked our flights we will be there late on August 25th.  Don't know where we are staying, trying to figure that out.  We will use some of my husband's Hilton points.  We are not leaving until Saturday night so we can get a small glimpse of Seattle.

    @johnt83any hotel recommendations for a Hilton property to see a bit of your city?


    Your TA is Kelley Hardy from MEI? That is my New TA too!!!

    I am happy to know another RC Blog friend is sailing with my Hubby and Myself, we will definitely have to hangout!! ?

  2. Thx John

    I have been MIA from the boards for a little while. I would love to have a meetup. Will be coming in the night before the cruise on August 26 I’m not sure where were staying yet, or what time we will get there, but I will definitely keep you in the loop

     I now work full-time with my job. The possibility of having a cruise in three months has lit the fire under my cruising addiction.

    I’m almost embarrassed to say...  I was talking to my husband earlier, about lanyards and I said you know that card thing that they give us,  ?

    I couldn’t think of the what it was called “Sea Pass”, that’s how long it’s been, in my mind since I saw a cruise ship, I drew a blank on what the Sailing Card was called!! LOL ?

  4. Hello All! 

    I know many of us have been to Nassau Bahamas, quite frequently, and some are bored with that port, and end up staying on the ship.

     This past February, my husband discovered a new place in Nassau called Jet Simulation Of Nassau, they opened up about a year ago.

    They have a 737NG simulator, that is just like the plane Simulators, that real pilots train on.

    They have a very extensive data base of airports and locations that you can take off and fly from.

    For my husband’s session, he chose a 90 minute session with two locations, Dubai & Saint Maarten.

    They also have real time weather conditions, depending on where were you select to fly, whatever is happening in that location is the weather that you get. You can also request a certain Weather condition, if you prefer to challenge yourself flying in a thunderstorm or something like that. 

    They have spectator seats behind The captain and Co-captain seats. It is fun for the passengers to have this experience as well.

    I have Never been able to sit in a cockpit during a flight, until this point.

    They are located in “The Pointe” right next to the British Colonial Hilton. 

    I have walking issues sometimes however,it is about a 10 minute easy walk from the ship. 

    I highly recommend, this one of a kind experience next time you visit Nassau Bahamas!!!

    I am going to!  HOw far from the pier, I believe Twangster said about 10 minutes?

    Yes That is a pretty pretty much accurate, we were able to walk it with no problem.

    I know the gentleman that runs this personally, he does a fantastic job making you feel at ease, & explaining everything.

    My husband did the flying, I got to sit in the cockpit behind him, they have spectator seats behind the pilot, and and co captain seats, and even that was so much fun for me.

    Now THAT looks like something we will do in February!! Awesome!! and thank you @CruisingKat(Kathy) and @Lovetocruise2002 for posting this!

    You are very welcome! I can tell you, for having been to Nassau so many times, I know a lot of cruisers are bored of Nassau, and don’t even bother getting off the ship, this experience is definitely worth getting off the ship!

    My husband had an absolute blast, it is so realistic. You definitely feel like you are flying in a real plane. I love it that they have true real time weather conditions, depending where you selected to fly to, and from.

    i definitely recommend this experience!!!

    just send them a E-mail to book!!

  8. Hi There

    I have a group cruise on Enchantment of the seas, 2-2-18

    I am trying to find out exactly when Enchantment of the sea’s, will be going into drydock? I know there has to be a place, to see a schedule for these.

    I would also like to know if it is possible to see what features will be done with the drydock, any upgrades and such?

    I feel like a newbie cruiser, asking this question, you would think I would know where to find this information by now, but I can’t seem to find it. ?

    Thank You in Advance for any help.

    I'm fine  with either Dallas or Austin. If the group chooses Dallas I'd just need a little bit more notice in order to make plans :) We can also ask @CruisingKat(Kathy) if we can post in the RC Periscopers Facebook page. I don't mind doing a scope to help get the word out. 

    I am ok with you posting in the Rcperiscopers Group Cristina ?

  10. Hey Kat, I've seen people recommend the vacuum bags that you roll up to take the air out for packing the memory foam pillow. It will still weigh the same obviously but will take up a lot less space.

    I did not think of that! I will have to try that.


    Thank you very much!!! ☺ï¸

  11. I don't want to be known as the cruiser referred to as princess and the Pea, HOWEVER...... I had a hard time sleeping with the pillows provided by Royal Caribbean. I do sleep with a memory foam pillow, and the pillows that Royal Caribbean has, did not seem to support my neck even with two pillows 😕


    My next cruise again will be on majesty of the seas, for a group cruise on February 3rd. More than likely, I will be bringing my own pillow. 😉


    Thank you everyone for your input. 😊

  12. Kat, I feel certain that they will get extra pillows for you. It is a very reasonable request. I would not lug my own unless you absolutely HAVE to have your own pillow (I have a girlfriend who always takes her own....but she's weird like that !).


    Enjoy your cruise !


    I did not take them when I went on Allure this past May. I did not think about asking for extra when I was on Allure, but did have some sleeping issues.

    I do have neck & Migranes problems sometimes. If my Neck is not supported properly, I get migraines.

  13. Going on Majesty of the Seas tomorrow. I am laying here thinking if there is anything I am forgetting.

    I sleep with a memory pillow, as well as a Body pillow.

    I was going to bring my own pillows for this Cruise, but I can't justify the Space they take up.


    With that being said, I am wondering if my state room Attendant will be able to accommodate my Request, for like 2 extra pillows?

    My Friend has also stated she will want a extra pillow as well.


    Thank for any help answering this Question.
