  1. That first one is the Dessert sampler at Sabor. Unfortunately i think only 2 ships still have it (If they leave it on Allure since the Amplification scaleback)
  2. Welcome to Cruise Line "Resort Fees". We dont know where all the money goes but hopefully it actually gets to the employees.
  3. RCL may also already have an idea of the occupancy %'s for April and Beyond with the Cruise with Confidence cancellations that have happened. Would you fully staff a restaurant that you were fairly certain would only be at 30%?
  4. If you purchase a bottle of wine you can of course ask if they can deliver it to your room. You can obviously grab the bottle and bring it to wherever you want to or more commonly you can have it delivered to the dining room where it will be ready for you during your dinner. There are many places to buy wine on the ships, dining room has the smallest selection typically. If your ship has Vintages or specialty restaurants such as Chops/Giovannis you will find their wine selection much more robust and you are welcome to order from these places and enjoy your wine anywhere.
  5. Or someone smoking two balcony's up wind from you......
  6. Cafe Promenade / Sorrentos Bar can do bloody mary's, although they dont have a ton of fixins. Windjammer bar can do them. And as was stated sometimes they will have a dedicated table set up in the Centrum/Promenade for bloody marys.
  7. You are absolutely correct about the SCANNING PASSPORT vs typing it in. I was not labelled as expedited so i just did the passport scan (in the Royal App) and immediately after pressing continue it now shows EXPEDITED arrival. Not sure its a big deal but its great to know now.
  8. Well i am confused then. Wonder if its like the TSA pre a few years ago, random selection if criteria is met.
  9. Yearly status renewals like Airlines / Hotels may be the future of cruising (or something in between)
  10. Also i believe the picture you upload may make you eligible for Expedited arrival. My fiance and i both have passports on the check in, her picture is a closeup face shot mine was not so close up and she got expedited and i didnt. I tried to update the picture but as @AshleyDillo says, it wont save you but a minute or two.
  11. One thing to also note is that a lot of the new phones actually have two WIFI devices that you can connect to wifi and also create a hotspot with the same phone. If you read the T&C's you are not actually connecting multiple devices to the VOOM wifi so this is a grey area.
  12. Incorrect. Royal Caribbean rules do not override country specific laws and regulations when you are on that countries soil. If the drinking age is 18 in a country RCL has no oversight as to whether or not you can be served legally in that country. On the ship of course they will not serve you.
  13. Just off Enchantment last week. Not one IPA onboard the ship, no pale ale nothing with any more hops than a red stripe. We asked about it and got random answers from random bartenders as to why they didn't carry IPA. I know the bartenders do not do the ordering but they are the front lines hearing questions "Do you have any IPA's"?
  14. RCL is definitely participating in the fact that consumers are opening their wallets like never before. Sell them more "stuff" because they are willing to spend spend spend. It is evident with airlines for sure, in the past first class seats were rarely purchased and mostly avail for upgrades, today you are lucky if the entire FC cabin is not bought up with an incentive offer or mileage upgrade offer. People are definitely willing to throw more money into the pot these days. Look at RCL stock though, up nearly 30% in 8 months.
