  1. We did this on Oasis last year on a sea day and really enjoyed the morning. Met in Izumi at 10AM and made 3 different types of Sushi. The chef is always available to assist and provide tips and your finished product becomes your lunch for that day. They did not allow us to take unconsumed sushi out of the restaurant, so it was a big lunch and many could not finish all that they made. Overall, I would recommend.
  2. What do you call a thorough review of all excursions in Colon? ... a colonoscopy....
  3. ...and many reviews of Enchantment mention the poor maintenance of the ship, noting the rust stains and other visible wear. Good to see that the crew is concentrating on the really important aspects. But maybe I'm in the minority; some rust stains and railing finish don't really impact my overall experience.
  4. Well, hopefully RCI is beginning to recognize that rules and policies mean nothing if they are not enforced. Imagine the uproar if formal night or "dress to the nines" was enforced at the MDR.
  5. Not heard of that, but my guess is that cruise staff would appreciate cash tips much more than a gift bag.
  6. Good news is that PCE is not fatal and typically spontaneously resolves. Remedies such as that suggested by @JLMoran are sometimes effective in treating the symptoms but really do nothing to address the fundamental cause of the ailment. Currently, there is no cure for PCE, but those afflicted can still lead a productive life with appropriate group counseling and some physical therapy to address any contusions that arise from pounding on the floor with your fists screaming "there's still 42 (or how ever many) days before embarkation". Hang in there; and pay no attention to the naysayers who might say "Oh geez, is that a tropical storm forming in the Eastern Atlantic?".
  7. But be careful with this option. We purchased this excursion for a Saturday return and on Thursday received a note in our stateroom that it was cancelled due to insufficient participation. So we not only lost the excursion but had to scramble to arrange a shuttle back to MCO.
  8. One way car rental back to MCO. Put the luggage in the trunk and stop for a ride on an airboat on the way back. https://www.airboatridesatmidway.com/
  9. My wife and I are doing this itinerary in Nov of this year. Rather than suggest excursions, here is a list of what we plan to do, which might give you some additional ideas and options. Hope that this helps. St Maarten - 12 meter regatta. https://www.12metre.com/ Sail a authentic America's cup yacht and engage in an actual race following to Cup rules. One can take an active part in trimming the sails, etc., or just sit back and let your other sailmates do the work. We've done this before in Cozumel and really enjoyed the experience. Available as an RCCI excursion. St Kitts - our choice is a Couples Massage and relax on the ship. But the Island tours that have already been suggested are very nice and received great reviews. Antigua - A foody excursion. https://www.tripadvisor.com/Attraction_Review-g147243-d1739072-Reviews-Nicole_s_Table-St_John_s_Saint_John_Parish_Antigua_Antigua_and_Barbuda.html We chose the seafood option, but all look interesting. Not been here before, but the company has received outstanding reviews. Independent operator. St. Lucia - We have booked Spencer Ambrose to visit Soufriere and the Pitons. http://spencerambrose.com/ Still deciding if we want to visit the volcanic mud baths or just spend some beach time on Jalousie Beach. Being beach folk, you may be interested in the latter option. Independent operator. Barbados - Mount Gay rum tour. Available as an RCCI excursion. According to the description, RCCI offers the extended tour which is not available through independent booking on the date that we dock. San Juan - We have a late flight out of SJ, so we booked the RCCL excursion that allows 4 hrs to explore Old SJ prior to departure with luggage transfer and transport to the airport. Seemed like a god way to wind down from the cruise.
  10. You have the right to remain in your stateroom and keep your wallet closed and secure. Anything you say or do can and will be used by RCI to increase your cruise fare or onboard expenses. You have the right to a mathematician. If you cannot afford a mathematician, RCI will provide one for you because we know math; really, we do.... really . Do you understand the rights you have just paid for? With these rights in mind, do you wish to sign on the dotted line and sail with us? 😈 😈
  11. So that's what I've been doing wrong.... 😏
  12. Did this last November on Oasis. Rental was for the entire week.
  13. Given the damage to the azipods, can Oasis even do the TA on her own power? Or is this a TA tow to Cadiz? And looking forward, with Freeport having the only dock, now damaged, that is capable of handling an Oasis class ship (and barely at that, from my understanding), is it really wise to plan to have 6 Oasis class ships plying the Caribbean in 3-4- years? Also, what we haven't heard is how serious the damage is with the dock?
  14. Agree. Two rooms, especially adjoining would be our preference if there is no difference in price. We've done this before and it has worked well.
  15. Don't you work for a living?....., No don't answer that. I want your job.... 😉
