  1. Adding to this... Some venues, like The Bamboo Room, might use specialty glassware. In those instances they'd prefer to keep those glasses within the venue. So if you do plan on taking a drink from one of these venues it would be polite to give notice. If it the beverage of choice is wine, not really an issue. However, a Urban Martini from 150 Central Park served "chiller bowl" style may have them swap glassware.
  2. Bar staff in general. Someone still has to stock the machines. Plus some ships don't have have the Freestyle machines.
  3. To me any drink that calls for a syrup is too sweet. I find the bartenders have a very bad habit of free pouring syrup. Trick on the Classic Old Fashioned might be asking to hold the simple syrup and letting the juice left on a maraschino cherry doing any sweeting.
  4. Sure. What you're buying is the ability to create an account that has the ability to simultaneously have 4 different devices logged in. Only restriction comes down to who you provide the account details too.
  5. Know what you're getting at. Using the menu description from the Pub for a Classic Old Fashioned: No where does it say "mashed fruit salad". Yet somehow when I order one it ends up being borderline tasting along the lines of fruit cake. One trick that seems to work is clearly saying don't mash anything and make it as the menu describes.
  6. I've never noticed it before on any ship. Haven't seen aluminum bottles since the restart. Been mostly the tall 12 or 16 oz cans.
  7. I boarded Mariner on Sunday using results from AZOVA.
  8. Ship/venue wise, best selection has to be at The Mason Jar on Wonder. Plus, The Mason Jar is the only spot with the large style ice cubes.
  9. Shop in St. Martin: Gulmohar's (Whisky Paradise), http://www.gulmoharsxm.com/ Back in April the had the Black and Red versions on Blanton's... $225 and $250 My purchase, Willett Rye (4y) for $55 Michter's Straight Rye for $40
  10. Recording of the oral arguments: https://www.ca11.uscourts.gov/system/files_force/oral_argument_recordings/21-12729.mp3?download=1 No update on the Court of Appeals docket since 5/18.
  11. Blog post with recipe for Savory Bites: https://www.royalcaribbeanblog.com/2013/12/12/royal-caribbean-classic-savory-bites To answer one question quickly, Potato Bread flour.
  12. You'll need to bring a towel from the ship. However, towels can be exchanged on CocoCay for a fresh one. Towels are available for guests at the Beach Club.
  13. Want to say Allure is the only ship that has the donuts on the Boardwalk in the morning. From what I recall, they were the same style as the ones offered in Windjammer. Maybe offered some other icing flavors, still same base donut.
  14. Only two a la carte restaurants on Wonder are Playmakers ($20 credit) and Izumi Sushi ($35 credit). Izumi Sushi also offer a pre fixe menu that'd be covered by the dining package. Statement wise, both are correct. The amount of credit depends on restaurant.
  15. Access to the helipad on Oasis class ships is restricted to crew only or guests during special activities.
  16. Technically speaking the Diamond discount is $25.99 towards any Voom plan. $25.99 just also happens to be the cost for a single device, 24 hours of continuous service of the Surf package. As already mentioned, when signing up for service it will automatically apply the discount.
  17. No menu posted outside the entrance. Sometimes they might display the theme or a nightly "action station". Example might be Mongolian, where you select vegetables and a meat and they stir-fry it to order. Sometimes the app might post the theme for the night. While the app might not post the nightly theme, the paper version of the Cruise Compass normally will. Keep in mind the theme only covers a small portion. Just because it is Italian night doesn't mean every dish is going to be Italian. In a nutshell, no menu along the lines of a listing of everything offered for breakfast/lunch/dinner.
  18. Looking at the posting history. Seems they got a RoyalUp to a Crown Loft suite. For a Crown Loft you'll get complimentary VOOM Surf and Stream for everyone booked in suite. Beyond that you'll have Coastal Kitchen access for all meals. Plus access to the Suite Lounge that'll offer complimentary water, soda, beer, and wine from 11a-11p. In addition a cocktail hour that is somewhere in the 5p-8p time range.
  19. Never seen Fever Tree onboard. Tonic, when canned, I want to say is Seagram's. Ginger ale, also when canned, Seagram's. Finally, ginger beer Gosling. Ginger ale and tonic from "the gun", I'd assume since Seagram's is a Coke product it is that brand of syrup. Not working the industry, I have not idea if a generic syrup is used. For the ginger beer, only seen it available in cans.
  20. Point conversion circa 2011 1-4 Credits = (Credits x 7) + 1 5-7 Credits = (Credits x 7) + 3 8+ Credits = (Credits x 7) + 13 Math in your case (1x7)+1=8 Poster's case might be (2x7)+1=15
  21. I've seen it before on a Canada/New England sailing on Anthem while docked in Canadian ports.
  22. Unfortunately... best bet is to keep an eye on the Cruise Compass section of the site for one to be posted matching voyage.
  23. I've done Eastern Caribbean where time was kept on EST (-5) while the ports were AST (-4). Was sailing on Wonder when Daylight Savings Time started and we didn't change time until morning of day 6. This was due to ports visiting on the Western side not observing DST. Had we shifted time on Sunday morning we would have been two hours ahead of Roatan (CST -6) vs EDT (-4).
