  1. You can use this great drink calculator developed by @Grenadyr to see if a drink package would be beneficial. Happy sailing!
  2. ^^^^This. If it happens to be somewhat cloudy do not make the mistake of thinking you are safe from burning. Not seeing the sun shining brightly upon you doesn't mean that the UV ray's are not just as harmful. Some of the worst sunburns I have seen were on cloudy days.
  3. It was terrific. We were there on Symphony during the second week that Perfect Day was open. There were 6464 passengers aboard and they said that 5800 got off. And with all those people, this is how South Beach looked at about 11AM. Relaxation at it's best! At that time in our area were 15 beach beds and 20 bungalows (we paid $219 for the bungalow and that included food delivery, water and floating beach mats). Next to us were the beach loungers. I actually don't know where the cabanas were.
  4. Having seen a LOT of Broadway shows, Cats has always been one of my least liked (sorry @JLMoran and @mom2mybugs). Unfortunately, my wife really likes a lot of the movie cast members so it appears I may have to see the movie. Have mercy on me!
  5. Yes, but only with TSA approved locks. https://www.royalcaribbean.com/faq/questions/onboard-luggage-policy
  6. Yes, a very nice 5-10 minute walk along the beach. Since South Beach is closed for construction we'll have to split between Chill Island and the pool. The pool is so huge, it's actually not terribly far from anything. Picture doesn't do it justice.
  7. Going back in October. We are sure it will still be great, but we'll surely miss the bungalow we had on South Beach in May.
  8. Darn it John, I was JUST going to book that stateroom and YOU pulled it offline for 15 minutes with your mock booking. Shame on you! 😁😁
  9. Find him on Day 1 and tell him he MUST do his magic act along with his personal story. He did about 20 minutes when hosting a show in the theater. Tell him you are also Canadian and will be very disappointed if he doesn't do it!
  10. Go to this Royal Caribbean website, fill out and submit the form. They will reply. An extension cord and a bottle of distilled water will be waiting for you in your cabin. If for some reason they are not, just ask your cabin steward. You'll can also ask your steward to run the cord under the bed and tape it down so you don't trip on it. Or bring magnetic hooks an run it across the top...all walls, doors and ceilings are metal. Happy sailing.
  11. With so many different geographic areas, professions and hobbies represented on this blog, I am guessing someone knows. This little guy has been hanging around all day. If I get close, it flies away and comes right back. (love-hate relationship?-hehe) I tried to find a website where I can upload a picture for identification but they all seem to want me to register. Thought I'd try asking here first. Next step will be to get to one of our county offices. I have asked around and have gotten all types of responses from a drone to a "drag in" fly. Thanks.
  12. We do not smoke but do think about this on ships where the Schooner Bar is right next to the casino. Hey, it had to be someplace. We usually go up a deck, walk across, and back down. A tiny bit inconvenient, but that should be our biggest problem in life. @ThyriC, yours is the best post I've ever seen on this topic. Well said.
  13. You guys have been on more RC cruises than I have (5 and 2 booked), and although Abe Hughes was my favorite CD, Mike S. on Symphony in May did the absolute best Quest we have seen. It was the most fun of the week (and not just because I ended up participating).
