  1. Will the Cococay Beach Club be open for your cruise?
  2. I appreciate Michelle even more after reading this. ๐Ÿ‘
  3. One more thing. Like PatsfanBrian. Have A "system." We have magnet hooks by the door. When we enter our stateroom, we hang it. As we leave, we pick it up.
  4. Vote 4 lanyard. I have one that I can carry tip $ too. I have to wear a lanyard at work. Funny, all look goofy without one. ๐Ÿ˜ plus, I don't care; cruise, sun, fruity drinks, food, --- do what is comfortable.
  5. Now .... cruise early check in means fruity drinks by the pool sooner.. ๐Ÿ‘
  6. Agree. All planning done and waiting for the on-board entertainment to open for reservations ... after I have Grease, Headliners, ice show, and comedy shows reserved, then my attitude changes.
  7. Alaska. Agree, so many breathtaking sights of mother nature. Similar experience (probably more common) was a whale breaching while we were on the Radiance.
  8. Over a decade ago my wife and I decided to cruise. Liberty of the Seas best fit our schedule. We were entirely ignorant. We picked one excursion. Jamaica excursion: Blue Mtn Coffee-Dunn River Falls-Snorkling with all the rum "kool-aid" U could drink. We decided that we would not snorkle and enjoy the boat. Again, first cruise... we did not remember the excursion details, and dressed for hiking along the "banks of Dunn River." Well.. My wife was dressed very fashionably with pants and shirt. Loved the Blue Mtn Coffee. Then, we were organized into groups to go hand in hand, not on the banks but IN THE RIVER. My wife was a trooper and stuck with it - still not realizing the depth (she is less 5 feet tall) by the time we got to the top she was soaked. We end up buying at the top of the falls, from the vendors, short gym shorts and a tee shirt. She changed in the restroom and walked out. The shorts were lime green with florescent yellow piping with JAMAICA (the bright yellow) across the back of the shorts. We laughed so hard and bought the video. As most were snorkling, we drank koolaid. Yes, my wife lead the Conga line dance before we ended the excursion. I still have photo at the start as a screen saver. What is your first cruise memory?
  9. Sailing on the 4th too. Have a great cruise. We are on the Harmony and are excited about the ship and itinerary. Oops. We sail on the 5th.
  10. Great advice from all. I would take advantage of getting familiar with the ship's routine. Review previous Cruise Compasses at this site. Royal Caribbean Cruise Compass | Royal Caribbean Blog https://www.royalcaribbeanblog.com/cruise-compass?ship=281
  11. We were on the Allure in February, Sky Class. We did not experience anything like that. Hopefully everything else improves.
  12. I've used them primarily for wine, but some bourbons fit (bookers, basil Hayden, skaggs, etc...). I bet most vodka bottles fit too. Maybe try these.
  13. If you are taking wine in your checked bags, recommend a bottle bag.
  14. Helicopter excursion in Kauai, awesome and it was right after a light rain - hundreds of beautiful waterfalls. Must eat at Sam's Ocean View Restaurant- live music, good food, and the view - postcard type.
  15. I think Matt nailed it. Ovation looks great and round trip from Seattle & junior suite are big benefits. We did the South bound Radiance with a land tour at the beginning (July). This maximized the experience. When I do it again, I would book a similar itinerary.
  16. Stealing your joy... jealous and makes them feel better.
  17. Wow. Intense. Good luck and hopefully the cruise will be your ultimate pressure release valve.
  18. I am 134 days out for my next cruise (169 days since Allure cruise) and we've started the "cruise fever." Flights- done. Hotel before cruise- done. Royal gifts for family for their stateroom- done. Excursion- done. Waiting on entertainment to be posted. Then spreadsheet time. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ
  19. Is your next Oasis cruise your Grand Panoramic Suite? Anxious to hear your opinion. -Bob
  20. For hubby. I am a fan of light weight convertible pants. Can make them shorts in a few seconds.
  21. This blog has a Cruise Compass section that allows you to sort by ship. For Symphony -Western , it was the third one down.
