  1. Have you cruised with those other companies during a potential global pandemic?
  2. Isn't there also a way for the one person that does cruise to get the C&A points for the person that doesn't show? I seem to recall something about that a month or so back.

    Hmm, you may need to call Royal about this. I do know that a woman on one of our cruises brought her own olive oil. (She was on a very restrictive diet for health reasons.) Our waiter in the MDR kept it in a galley area for her and would bring it to the table for her each night.
  4. The title of your post look as though you may think that this is an official RCCL website and asking for these options to be added. It is not. This is a fan site not at all affiliated with Royal Caribbean. Your comments are a bit puzzling. Each ship we've been on in the past four years has had almond and/or soy milk options and oil based dressings are a staple. As mentioned above, there's no need to suffer in silence if you have food allergies or issues. The staff is always ready and willing to accommodate. My wife is gluten intolerant and she is always appreciative of how little she has to worry about food issues.
  5. Oh, yes there is! I end up "infected" with beer all the time!
  6. I find this odd. Our experience with this on Freedom was completely the opposite. Each group/couple had all of the ingredients in separate containers on the table while the server/instructor gave tips on how to utilize the different ingredients to suit our tastes. He also tutored us on making some superb Margaritas and print outs of the guacamole and margarita recipes were provided after the included lunch. All in all, it was a very good experience.
  7. Oops, somehow double posted the comment above.
  8. Here's a tip (no pun intended). There's no need to actually take a bulky stack of $1 bills with you. Just take your larger bills into the casino and use the Cash Out/Bill Breaker machine. It's available for use even when the casino is closed.
  9. I can't speak of the decks themselves, but, personally, I like to pick cabins AWAY from elevators and stairways just for the sake of noise intrusions that may occur. I need the extra bit of exercise anyway!
  10. I agree with @SpeedNoodles , leave that FB group. No one needs that nonsense. I find that this site is all I need for all things Royal Caribbean. You're already paying a good bit amount of money for your vacation and whatever you want to pay above and beyond the standard gratuities is fine. There's no need to practically put yourself into debt just to tip people. Quite frankly, There's no way to verify that the people saying they've paid $50-$100 PP/PD (YIKES!) is true!
  11. Larger ships have a bar in the Windjammer in which you can get one in the morning. Larger and smaller ships usually have a portable bar set up to provide bloody marys and mimosas at the entrance or inside the Wind Jammer. I take advantage of this often.
  12. I have a bit of perspective on why the "not open until 11" may apply. We sailed on Vision out of SJ on January 25th. We arrived at the port just after 10 and were third in line for luggage drop off. Unfortunately, it turned out that the luggage porters were on their lunch break from 10:00 to 11:00. So we had to wait in the luggage drop off line until 11:00. I've never had this happen before and keep in mind that the porters are NOT Royal Caribbean personnel. They are union employees that work for the port. On the plus side, the check-in process in the terminal was very quick and we were on board and ordering our first drink at the Schooner Bar by 11:15.
  13. This was also the butter in the MDR and WJ on Vision two weeks ago.
