  1. English is a very widely taught language throughout Europe. I learned of this while stationed in there during my military years. More than anything, local citizens appreciate when you at least attempt to speak the local language, so maybe look into learning a few phrases. The effort is appreciated and seen as a sign of respect that makes people that do speak English more willing to assist you.
  2. Bought mine a few months before the standard prices went up. The BOGO 50% off priced out at $47 PP/PD With the new pricing, this 30% off deal prices out at $48 PP/PD
  3. Don't know the actual rates, but, I've rented a car in the Miami/Ft. Lauderdale area (Hertz) and the car was equipped with EZ Pass/Sun Pass that allowed me to use the non-stop toll lanes and have the tolls simply added to my rental charges. I, for one, liked the convenience. I would think there has to be a cash lane for those that don't want to use electronic tolls.
  4. So far, we've only used NextCruise once and we got a pretty good deal: 30% off our cruise fare, 50% off initial deposit ($250), and $250 OBC. (And this was a "cheapo" interior cabin booking)
  5. Like @Matt said, 11am would be a good time. You'll probably be given a later check-in time when you get your cruise documents. These are just a recommendation and don't need to be adhered to. (Personally, we shoot for 10:30) Regarding your password issue, you may need to call Royal about your account issues.
  6. 1. It's a good place to find essentials. I've bought the tea lights, magnetic clips, and towel clips there. (And now I need to look for those hampers!) 2. "I left them in our cabin". Oh well, easily and cheaply replaceable.
  7. Nice tip. I'll have to pick up one or two of these. Another Dollar Tree item, a two pack of battery operated tea lights. These are really nice to use in the bathrooms as a mild night light (particularly in very dark interior rooms) and are bright enough to avoid blinding yourself in the middle of the night.
  8. I hope that whoever you are proposing to doesn't know about this website, cuz you may be letting the cat out of the bag! I would think that Coco Cay would have some nice beach spots to pop the question, but, you'll be leaving the island well before sunset.
  9. This is exactly why I RARELY give 10's on ANY online surveys. No matter how good a product or service is, I say there is always room for improvement. It's not that I'm hard to please, it's just fact.
  10. The ports you are visiting are known for rums and tequilas. As far as bringing it back, I've brought a bottle of liquor back in my checked bag each of the last three years with no breakage trouble. Each time I've packed it in the dead center of my bag cushioned by clothing. (Twice with soft side luggage and once with hard side luggage.) If you happen to be getting away from the port in Cozumel, Arc Angel, in the middle of the island on Transversal de Cozumel, has some of the best tequilas I have ever had! I've never seen it in the US. (Many excursions that go to the other side of the island stop at this location for a shopping/bathroom break)
  11. YES! Take both to get two coffees at once. I do this every morning to get my coffee and also my wife's coffee while she's doing her hair and make up. (or she's just not getting out of bed yet! )
  12. I think I’ve seen that on every military form I ever encountered! It’s pretty much the basis for my first reply to this topic! 😆
  13. My guess is that these signs are "leftovers". They've probably got a fair amount of these pre-printed and stockpiled and are using them until they are exhausted. They'll probably update them once these run out.
  14. 1. Welcome to the boards! 2. Enjoy your new cruise! 3. Thank you for joining to give a positive experience of customer service. Glad everything is working out for you. A lot of new members seem to join just to vent frustration with customer service or Royal Caribbean in general (often when they themselves are at some fault and want to blame RCCL) and then are never heard from on this forum again. I hope you've also found some other helpful info around here.
