Hi, I am an 82 year old woman with compromised health, and the last thing on my bucket list that I am still able to consider doing is going on a cruise, which I have never done but always wanted to do. I've booked a balcony stateroom on the Brilliance for 2 days at sea and one day in Cozumel, in order to fulfill my dream of being on a calm sea and meditating on the horizon. But all the reviews I read are all about the partying, the jockeying, the smoke, the rushing, the shopping – and I wonder, will I be able to relax and enjoy the peace and quiet on my balcony? Will there BE any peace and quiet? Will I be able to take a quiet stroll on deck at night? Enjoy the peace of a hot tub, relax in a sauna, without feeling crammed by dozens of other people jockeying for the same space, and making a lot of noise? Please be honest. Thank you.
Hi there and thanks in advance for your help! I am cruising in four weeks with a 6mth old, 9 and 13 yr old and my mother who is just recovery from cancer treatment and a broken ankle, we will be celebrating her birthday and she is also has an autoimmune disease so she can tire easily. Cancer and broken ankle happened after the cruise was booked. We are doing the western cruise to jamaica, cozumel and haiti. We do have an aqua suite on the oasis. I'm really struggling with what excursions would be good for all involved, what is close to the ship and what would be exciting for my kids as well. My sister will be along (mom to infant) so we will have two very able bodied adults! Also, has anyone left infants in the royal nursery or used the sitter service while on excursions? I'm becoming a bit overwhelmed with all the planning and meal reservations etc. Thanks in advance!
