  1. I rebooked for Apr 7. - 14 2024 Wonder OTS, so don't expect me to write back on this.
  2. Hi everyone, I am cruising next month and am wondering: 1. Do beach beds ever become available on Coco Cay once they are showing as "sold out" like once you board? Is there a possibility that there will be some available if I try to reserve on board? I'd really like to have a designated space on if at all possible. I'm checking daily, throughout the day but it's a no go. 2. Should a beach bed not be available, what is the best spot to likely grab loungers before they're all taken? Thanks everyone! Any feedback is welcome. This is only my second cruise and my first was 20 years ago on my honeymoon. It's a whole new world out there now. FYI, there will be two adults in our party, so kid friendly area is not a concern.
  3. Looking forward to this sailing. It's our welcome back cruise since the shut down. 94 days and counting.
  4. Hi All! Question for anyone that can answer. Got an email stating that our itinerary was changed for our sailing. Coco Cay and our sea day have been switched. No biggie and it's truly fine. However, for the original date, we had wanted to purchase a bed for Chill Island and everything was sold out. Now that the schedule has changed, will more spots open? If you've already booked, does it carry over? Just curious since I checked one site that said we'll be the only ship in port that day (since the switch). Please advise. Thanks!
  5. Hi, I am boarding Harmony of the Seas 7n western on 5/1/22 and I will have my 9 month old, and 11 & 13 year old boys. I am looking for all kinds of advice, tips, tricks etc. I plan to take my own travel crib because it's lightweight, compact, and I know its clean. But in general how does a pack-n-play fit into a room? I currently have a Boardwalk Balcony but I did the Offer Up (pending) for the ultra spacious room. I am thinking putting in an offer for the junior suite and also basic balcony room too. Maybe the ocean will be quieter for the baby to sleep. But anyway, I will have 2 adults, baby and 11yr old in my room so I am looking for suggestions on rooms. Should I go to a bigger suite? We are a party of 10 so I am unsure how it works if one room is a suite and the rest are basic. I want to dine with everyone so not looking to be secluded. Baby- How did you heat water for the bottle? How did you get water for the bottle? Did you take a sound machine? Did you take a stroller? Uppababy cruz or umbrella? Suggestions on what to carry on vs pack for the baby. Suggestions on packing enough but not a billion things for a 9m old. CoCoCay - Would you book a cabana? We were debating the over water one but it's not $1,899 so now looking at the chill island one for $999. We are doing the helium balloon and 3 out of 10 are doing the jetski otherwise the day will be chill on the island. All the adults have cruised before just not the kiddos so share what you got. Thanks in advance!
  6. Thought it would be a good idea to post a quick photo look around of the offerings a Skipper's Grill on CocoCay. I'm going to assume that Chill Grill would have the same offerings. Per signage, the hours of operation are 11:30 to 3:00 Starting off it was nice seeing the beverage station outside of the buffet area. This area also has a soft serve machine. Getting a closer look at the beverage island area. Better view of the drink dispensers I'm not sure if the beer by the ounce dispenser is covered by the beverage package or not. Also want to say a hand washing station was on the other side of the dispensers. Fruit carving just so you know where you were. Skipper's Grill was divided up into multiple sections. Once for cold salads and pre-made sandwiches. Some sandwiches being made. Grill stations with the classic hot dogs, hamburgers, chicken, corn, and not shown fries. Next up was a taco/mexican station, here they had chicken, beef, pulled pork, rice, and beans. (Need to double check if I have any pictures) One highlight was the freshly made flour Finally two different topping stations. One geared towards burger fixings and the other for taco fixings. Finally a photo just for drool factor. This plate was a cuban sandwich (made with a soft sweet style bread), rice and beans plus some of the pulled pork. Also forgot to mention there is a small bar counter within the Skipper's Grill area. Don't recall if they did blended drinks but they did carry plenty of beers and spirits. Only major complaint I had was food temperature, nothing seemed really that hot. Most of what I tried was almost warm, some stuff was hot but for the most part it wasn't consistent. I might mark that as being there probably when they first opened around 11:30. Overall they weren't that busy at the time.
  7. We have a group going over Spring Break Next year on the Harmony to Coco Cay. We have reserved a Floating Cabana. The Listed Capacity is 8. There is 13 of us total, with 6 adults and 7 teens. We are willing to buy extra Beach club passes for the overflow and figure that it will mostly be the adults hanging out at the Floating Cabana. The Teens will probably be just coming and going to other pools and activities. What is everyone's experience with access to the Floating Cabana's after you get into the beach club. Is there a different pass for the floating cabana's that you need. If there is more than 8 people at the Cabana do they get mad? Any guidance on this is greatly appreciated!!!
  8. Well, this summer’s cruise got L&S-ted to next July, so my $49 pp Beach Club passes on CocoCay are obviously gone. It doesn’t look like prices are going to trend back to “affordable” for the Beach Club next year, so we’ll probably just grab a Beach Bed and explore the island at our leisure. Now, I’m looking for experienced opinions! There’s three options: Breezy Bay, South Beach and just “Full Day Beach Bed Rental” (no specific location indicated). For context, we’re a family of 4 with 2 elementary aged boys who will not be the LEAST bit interested in the water slides in the water park, but probably will want to spend some time in the pool. We’re really just looking for a good home base location that will let us explore, hang out and play on the beach and do a little swimming. So, with all of that said, any opinions? I fully understand that these will be very subjective, but I always appreciate all of your different viewpoints and experiences! Thanks in advance as always!
  9. I'm going on Symphony of the seas in March 2022. I looked at the port schedule for CocoCay and it looks like the day I'm visiting (March 18, 2022), both Symphony and Mariner are docking. How crowded would that be with 2 ships, especially the waterpark? I know Royal frequently docks 2 voyager class ships (ex. Navigator and Mariner), but I don't know about an Oasis class + Mariner.
  10. CoCo Beach Club: Floating Cabanas This June we (my group) are looking forward to an Oasis OTS cruise that takes a stop at CoCo Cay!!! Everyone is looking forward to it, but I was wondering what your guys' opinions on the floating cabanas were. We would split the price between everyone, and we would probably have some people relaxing there most of the time we are at the Cay. Just wanting your experiences, opinions, and recommendations! Thanks! P.S. If they're worth it, Can you reserve them? [(We have the royal Genie)(We would be fine with having other party members pay us back.)] If so, which are best, closer to land or further out? (I thought the one on the far right looked best in my opinion.) Lastly, do they rock a lot, my dad gets seasick?.
  11. Looking for feedback/advice on the Coco Cay Wave Jet Tour excursion. What did you like, not like? I have reviewed the overview and restrictions on cruise planner but am looking for any first hand reviews. Thanks in advance.
  12. Just reserved a beach bed, but it looks a long way from food/drinks. Does anyone know if are there servers roaming around to take orders?
  13. I've looked through past topics on this, but it seems Royal is continually making changes to how they book and assign cabanas. On the cruise planner you now have to link all the people who are going to be in your cabana. Has anyone skipped this by booking the cabana for one and then changing the assigned number of people once onboard or upon arrival at the cabana? Has anyone successfully booked more than one cabana on the same room/reservation? Can I still book two cabanas, one under my name and one under my wife's? We've got a group for an upcoming cruise and we're wanting to use our cruise planner credit from a Covid-cancelled cruise to get enough cabanas for the group.
  14. Hello, everyone! I would like some advice on this. I and my family (wife, 9 yo daughter, 5 yo son and I) are going to CoCo Cay in late September. I am debating between a Thrill WaterPark cabana or going to the Beach Club (non-cabana). My daughter is scared of long slides, so would only do the smaller slides. My son can only do the smaller slides and play areas as well. I do not know how busy Thrill gets as Harmony of the Seas should be there (a large ship) an hour before our smaller ship (Enchantment of the Seas). Will it be a mad house you think? If so, I am thinking some beach time and sand toys could be fun at the (I am guessing) less crowded beach club. Our main goal of this vacation is relax and not fight off crowds with a stick. For our booking, it looks like the Cabana would be about $600, and the Beach Club would be $250. Thanks for any thoughts or advice!
  15. Has anyone gotten push back from Royal when booking more than one cabana under the same reservation?

  17. Does Royal Caribbean have more than one ship at a time at Coco Cay? We have a stop there on Navigator in June and again in December on Anthem. I'm trying to figure out which activities to plan for which cruise. If there's only one ship at a time, then I'd prefer to do the water park with Navigator, as there would theoretically be fewer people!
  18. My wife and I will be leaving on our first cruise on March 21st-28th. We leave out of New Orleans and we will be aboard Majesty. Does anyone have any tips they would like to share? anything from what you wish you knew before your first cruise, if you've been on majesty, things to do in Florida Keys/Nassau/Cococay... We will also be in New Orleans two days before our cruise so if you know of any fun things to do there please let me know. Thanks in advance.
  19. With all the love lately for the Coco Beach Club (rightfully so), I'm interested in seeing some South Beach updates, and in particular the South Beach Cabana! Has anyone been by there in the last few days or going soon?
  20. We just got back from our cruise on Anthem this past Saturday and I wanted to give those interested e a little information on the Chill Island Cabanas because I couldn't find out much online before we left. - The cabanas are amazing but there are definitely some that are better than others. We specifically chose #14 which is at the end so we had less people around us....unfortunately, it had more birds! The rock wall on the right of the picture is where the seagulls hang out. - Next time, we would book book Cabana #9, #10 or #11. - Cabanas 8 through 14 are in the front row and 1 through 7 are in the back. - There are chairs on the left of the cabanas that are for suite guests and it is first come, first serve. - If you have access to the Chill Island Cabana area (rented a cabana or are in a suite), there is an upgraded lunch buffet. Our buffet had lamb chops, ribs, chicken, salmon, shrimp and scallop skewers, Maine lobster tails, hamburgers, hot dogs, salads, fruit, cookies, etc. A lot of food!! - There is no bathroom area in the cabana area but it isn't that far of a walk - The beach is roped off for the cabana area - The snorkeling right beyond the roped off area was really good. We saw hundreds of fish of all different types. If anyone has any questions, let me know!!
  21. If doing slides in the Thrill Waterpark, what do you do with sandals/flip flops? Do you just leave them with your other stuff? Or is there a place to put them near the slide entrance? I don't like to walk around too much in bare feet on hot pavement. Or really anywhere. I assume water shoes are not allowed on slides?
  22. Hello all! My husband and I are trying to decide between the oasis and navigator, both being 4 nights in may. It will be our first time leaving our boys so its just us and it’s also my husbands first time cruising (& I haven’t gone in a decade and not with Royal) So I’ve done lots of research and the main things I can’t decide between is the navigator isn’t as big but is going to Cocoa Cay and Nassau and 1 sea day, while the Oasis is the oasis, but is only going to Cozumel with 2 sea days. Would love experienced royal fans to help and give any and all advice! ? thank you in advance! Alyssa
  23. I’m curious about the CocoCay Beach Beds on South Beach. Has anyone experienced this excursion recently? We rented one for our Cruise but I can’t seem to find a lot of details. I know what all it includes but I’m not sure how it works? I know it’s first come first serve but I don’t want to get stuck with a beach bed that isn’t front row and I’m not sure how Id avoid that with so many cruises buying the key? Do I have to wait until I’m at the beach beds to secure one? And do we get to choose one or do they assign us a number? Also, is the buffet far from there?
  24. Good Morning! Does anyone know if infants still in swim diapers are allowed in the oasis pool on CocoCay? Or do the same rules apply as on the ship? No pools until out of diapers? just a curious mom trying to plan with two infants ? thank you!
