    Hello all, just got an email that my Key West stop has been switched to Bimini.  That actually sounds enticing but there is little talk of this port. On fact, I have never heard of Royal stopping there. Looking for any suggestions.

    FYI, the port change is related to Grand Cayman still being closed to ships. The cascading effect switched out Key West for Bimini. 

    Just got the email for my sailing on the Jewel of the Seas. I am going to wait and see what excursions Royal put together.

    As the others have said, there really isn't a good indication of timing quite yet....but since your cruise is a good ways out yet, I wouldn't worry about it selling out in the near term.  ...and sales come and go.  If I were you, I would wait until the next sale, buy it and then check periodically to see if the price goes down.

    What about Black Friday sales?

Will be cruising with my mommy lol she is 79 I am 50. She wanted to get a couple more cruises in before she cant anymore

    I love cruising with my parents. My Dad who was 80 at the time, did the Thriller dance. Everyone cheered him on.

    We ended Day 8 at Chops. I have to say, I have not eaten at Chops since 2014 during an unfortunate trip on Legend. We had an ABYSMAL waiter and painful 3+ hour dinner with unimpressive food and swore off the venue.

    Fortunately Serenade has redeemed the brand. We had a great dinner with excellent service. MomMe declared it the best meal she had so far. (She was actually on the ill-fated Legend trip but had blocked out the memory of the Chops visit.)

    We had crab cake (more of a seafood cake and adequate), bacon (it’s actually pork belly, so don’t order it thinking it’s bacon), filet (excellent), spicy prawns (tasty but not spicy), asparagus (decent), mac’n cheese (fantastic), and mashed potatoes (excellent).

    The food at Chops is good, but the plating is uninspired so there are no photos until dessert. Key Lime pie and (in honor of @Sweety’s return to the blog) Red Velvet Cake:



    Kenneth is getting creative now:



    Thank you. I miss my red velvet cake. I will be on the Jewel in December. 

  5. My first cruise is December 18-23, 2021. It is good to be back. My school closed after 17 years of working at the same school. My new school is across from the Obama Presidential library. I love my new school.
