  1. Among other reasons, another good one for why we book so far in advance, and only pay deposit until final payment is due. We will be able to use the FCC to pay off the balance of our November indy cruise and a smaller portion of our march 2021 enchantment.
  2. At the risk of being the mean guy, Casino offers free room (on specific sailings) because of the unfortunate abundance of unoccupied cabins on a ship that was probably booked solid 60 days ago & you expected them to give offer you another free room on a sailing of your choice? 😢🤦‍♂️
  3. I-O, we have looked at booking a b2b to even out the cost per day. Maybe some day!
  4. As a Buckeye living in Columbus, we have always wanted to do this cruise. The reason we don't, is that it has always been a 4 or 5 night cruise and considerably more expensive. Not to mention it sells out in no time flat, particularly the suites. There are a ton of Buckeyes fans with a lot of disposable income!
  5. I will try this again, I posted an earlier response to no avail. We stayed at La casa sul Mare in Civitavecchia. A very nice bed and breakfast. The owner was extremely nice and accommodating. They have at least 3 rooms maybe 4. All with air conditioning and hotel style accommodations. They do have 1 room that does not have a private bath, FYI. We used aimlimorome. Adequate service. We used them for 4 adults from MCO to Civitavecchia in a Mercedes van, from Civitavecchia to Rome hotel after the cruise, again 4 adults Mercedes van. And finally, Rome Hotel to MCO after a few days in Rome, 2 adults Mercedes sedan. In Rome after the cruise we stayed three nights at le meridien visconte rome (Marriott property, western style Hotel).
  6. We used Z Limousine. They were satisfactory, on time, for both transfers.
  7. Cozumel food tour with chef Emily Not a fan of Costa Maya, but we go to maya chan beach resort every time we are there. It is a pleasantly primitive with phenomenal customer service. No recommendations for Roatan. We have only been there once and i did a Snuba scooter excursion through royal Caribbean.
  8. We had a small group of 4 adults. We stayed in Civitavecchia the night befor tne cruise. I had arranged a private car for the transfer. Trains can be a bit overwhelming if you have never done them before. Others may have better information, but I think the latest you could stay on is 930 or 10. We boarded the ship around 10:50am in October, so the ship was certainly cleared of all passengers well before that.
  9. Thanks Koepper, I've also seen what's available on YouTube. The short documentary had interviews with crew and engineers. If I dont get an answer here, I will ask during my next cruise in March. I rarely impose on tne suite concierge, but maybe I'll give her a mission.
  10. You posted twice, so I'll answer twice. just now Taxis are the easiest by far. Maybe not the absolute cheapest, but walk out of the port, and the cabs are queued and ready to go. No wait, no fuss.

  12. I seem to recall watching a documentary about enchantment being stretched while I was on board Adventure 10 years ago. It was obviously created and produced by RCCL. I was fascinated at the time and now that we are booked on Enchantment, I was wondering if anyone knew where I could find the documentary? Google has failed me.
  13. Just a thought. Use your points for OBC which then could be applied to your daily gratuities. Which will bE the same price pre-cruise or on board. Buy the drink package now and save a significant amount of money.
  14. We use Allianz & have been very happy with it. Although we have never had to make a claim (thankfully), customer service over the phone has always been spot on when purchasing and the new online tools for purchasing are easy and intuitive.
  15. I started a FB group for this cruise if you are interested. If you can't find the group, feel free to send me a friend request. Mark A Swisshelm
  16. Yes...sigh.... I broke down and booked a loft suite because the prices were so good. I usually don't give O-class much consideration but between Matt's blog and Chris's videos and this price, I might as well give it another try😁
  17. Thanks for the video, just booked Oasis for Thanksgiving 2021.
  18. welcome pixie, I wish I could give you 1st hand knowledge about venice, but in Civitavecchia, Itally, customs was practically non-existent. We walked off the ship grabbed our bags and never stopped until we met our driver. 10 minutes tops.
  19. Overall rating is poor, and yet I get a slice (or two) every night on the way to the cabin. My biggest irritation is that it can be very different from night to night, always poor, but very different. As an example one night it can have a very thin cracker type crust and others it will be more thick and floppy. I get that they may pull pies out prematurely due to customer demand , but given that is all they do, one might think they could do it consistently!
  20. I have never seen a price break or sale on the Soda Package.
  21. We have done two very different southern itineraries out of San Juan on Adventure and Love, Love, Love it down there. We will be on Navigator for the 9nt on April 13th and Super excited!
