  1. One benefit to buying it onboard when its the same price as the cruise planner is that your onboard credit can be used when you purchase it onboard while it can not be used for a pre cruise planner purchase.  One thing people often forget is that onboard credit can go towards gratuities, so those who wonder how they will use their OBC, figure about 200 for a couple will just be gratuities at the end of the week.

  2. Heading on the Navigator in about a month doing the 9 night ABC islands.  I have always told myself i should try the Windjammer for dinner more often but between MDR and Specialty dining I never end up eating a full dinner at Windjammer (Just Pre-Dinner usually).  After seeing some other folks post windjammer dinner pics from Brilliance, Adventure and even Lobster / Crab Legs on Liberty it made me think i need to try to eat up there more often, if nothing else for the variety.


    Can anyone comment on Navigator, specifically the options in the Windjammer at dinner?

  3. Unfortunately, "your version" of hash browns are nothing like I have ever seen on a cruise.....maybe Waffle House....but not RCL....VBG!!!

    isnt it sad that we are agreeing that waffle house can make better hashbrowns then Royal Caribbean?  When i see folks take photos of some of the breakfast plates on RCL its more like a wall of shame than something to showcase.

  4. Probably the biggest disappointment of our recent trip on Liberty was room service. We were really looking forward to breakfast on the balcony of our junior suite.. but the first time we used room service for breakfast, the food was close to inedible. It was the only bad food we had on the trip.

    I can agree with this statement 100%.  On Liberty Room service was painfully slow (50+ minutes no matter when you ordered, wait times on phone upwards of 15 minutes and Television ordering isnt actually confirmed, they have to call back after you place order on TV).  Food always shows up cold and rock hard.  Honey stung chicken was more like unflavored show leather.  Royal Burger was terrible.  I was extremely disappointed to say the least.

  5. The package still covers a vast majority of drinks. The 5 or so drinks listed on the pub menu I would never order anyway.

    Yes the packages still cover most everything but i think the concern here is more the direction that folks see things going.  Its like RCL is trying to push the limits little by little to see where things break.  Its a good method to optimize their business model, it just puts a bit of negativity into peoples minds that could be affected by this after they thought they bought an unlimited drink package.  

  6. I noticed last week on Liberty that they have done away with the crispy triangle hash browns and instead have the circles that lack the same texture (This may not be all that new).  What was more troubling is they also did away with the very crispy, almost coated fries they always had in the windjammer and MDR for some soggy fries that couldn't stand up to being on a buffet line.  


    Has anyone else seen this on other ships?  I know I know, first world problems...

  7. For a la carte meals, it is my understanding that you get a credit allowance for your meal.  If you go over that allowance then the rest will be added to your sea pass account. 

    Yes thats right, when you purchase the dining packages you get a 30.00 credit to any of the a la cart type restaurants.  


    Hibachi was included for me, if you want two meats you just pay an extra 5.00.

  8. I have done this.  As you probably have read it requires you dine at a specialty restaurant on night one and night two.  RCL will ONLY choose the first nights restaurant for you, you can definitely change the restaurants and times once on board, but you have to dine on nights one and two.  I am getting the same pushback on the Sabor interest for my upcoming Liberty sailing.  All of us live in Texas, eat guac at least 3 times a week and the 25 or 30.00 dollar cover seems high for the menu.  

  9. Yes the BOGO dining package requires you dine at a specialty dining establishment on Nights 1 & 2 only:

    Here is the T&C from the package:


    • This offer requires dining on Days 1 and 2
    • You can make amendments or additional reservations on your first day onboard to guarantee preferred dining time and restaurants
    • Our staff can add your kids to your existing reservation at kids' prices once onboard
  10. Favorite first drink? -Belvedere Rocks with two lime wedges

    Favorite first food/meal/snack? - Crumbled Bacon Cheese Burger with some extra nacho cheese on it custom created in Windjammer and those crispy fries.

    Favorite first on-board location stop? - Closest bar to the entrance I come in at

    Favorite embarkation day activity? - Staring over the side of the ship watching them load the hundreds of thousands of pounds of food and alcohol.

    If you order the 24 bottle package you will get 24 (1 Liter Bottles) 


    You may say this is very expensive but compare it to a hotel which charges 4 - 8.00 for a liter of water in the rooms, or even a grocery store which typically wants 1.00 a liter when bought one at a time.  This is not unlimited for the week.
