  1. We booked for the same reason. Excited to try both private islands!
  2. Day One - Addendum One thing I forgot to mention was on our way down on day one, Julie was on Facebook when she said, "Oh no. It looks like there was a medical emergency on the Liberty. They are diverting to Cozumel and ..." Did I mention that our first two RC cruises were cancelled? As she said this, my heart sank and I truly expected her to say " ... they've cancelled our cruise." But they didn't! Turns out they would just be delayed in returning to port. I breathed a sigh of relief and figured a few hours delayed is bettered than cancelled! Day Two - Almost There We woke
  3. Preamble Some of you know that we have tried to sail with Royal twice before. First, we were booked on the Adventure of the Seas out of San Juan when our sailing was cancelled due to an unscheduled dry dock. We tried to rebook with RC, but we weren't able to work something out with them when we wanted to go. We sailed on NCL and while we had a decent time, NCL didn't win us over. So, when we found a good deal on a sailing on the Navigator of the Seas for February '19, we figured we'd give RC a shot. That was supposed to be her first sailing after her amplification and, if you remember, it
  4. We just got off the Liberty this past Sunday. You will have a GREAT time - the ship is amazing and the crew is better. Seriously, we left some fun for you!
  5. Our TA is working to get us onto My Time Dining since she can't get my in-laws on Early dining. It's more important for us to all eat together (since the grandparents are snowbirds, they are gone 1/2 the year and the boys don't get to see them) than to have the same servers all week. If it doesn't get resolved before we get onboard, I'll just go to the MDR and explain what is going on. I figure once onboard, they should be able to accommodate us.
  6. When we sailed with another line this past February, we parked at the cruise terminal in their ramp. It wasn't expensive and was stupid easy. We had porters meet us even before we parked and it was a short elevator ride to check in. Then, after customs, it was a short walk back to the car. I know this didn't answer your original question, but I wanted to give you another option.
  7. So, I have a "tradition" where I have a plate of chocolate covered strawberries waiting in the room for my lovely wife. The problem is that the past two cruises we've been on my boys have demolished the plate before she could get a second one. My plan this time is to take her out for a glass of wine and some chocolate covered strawberries - assuming I can find them. Where might I look to find them for her to say thanks for putting up with me all the time? We'll be on the Liberty of the Seas...
  8. This. We already had our next cruise booked when RC cancelled ours. I gave the number to our TA and she took care of it.
  9. When they cancelled our sailing on the Navigator, we received an email from Royal with a code. Took a couple of weeks.
  10. Magnets from each location and an ornament for each trip.
  11. We are watching your videos now. They are a lot of fun. Anthony is a riot! Already subscribed!
  12. Thanks for sharing - and the site. I never knew this existed!
  13. I'll put in a good word for Kathy Geiger - Kathy is a great TA and I recommend her to all my friends.
  14. Enjoy both of your cruises. We are excited to try the Liberty for the first time in February!
  15. Finally able to come back and catch up on this. Great write up! Feeding my excitement for our cruise in February. Are you on the Liberty again in Feb 2020?
  16. If you price it out yourself and your agent gives you a different price than you saw online, just ask them. For example, our MEI Agent (Kathy G - she is awesome!) always prices it out with refundable deposits which is more than non-refundable and what the RC site defaults to, if I understand correctly. I've worked with other agencies and with MEI. A good agent won't be upset with your questions. Just ask. They want you to be happy and have a great vacation so you come back.
  17. This. I told the crew back home just text me if there is an emergency and I can respond accordingly. If I had to check in, even 3 texts a day is far less than Ann internet package.
  18. Considering that when we have burgers for dinner I have to make an extra for breakfast, my son will be bummed they won't be there for breakfast.
  19. Nice! I don't want to go to Johnny Rockets due to the cost. This should satisfy my burger boy!
  20. I watched a YouTube video of the WJ spread on Liberty this afternoon and it looked like they had a "build a burger" station where you can add what you want to your burger. One of my sons LOVES burgers and will flip over this. Can someone confirm this sort of thing may be an option?
