First time cruising...any tips?
Sussiewinterbear posted a topic in Royal Caribbean DiscussionHello! I'm new to this forum. I've got plans to take a 5-day Caribbean cruise with my grandmother on December '22 aboard Voyager Of The Seas, this would be our first time traveling by ourselves (we usually go with seasoned travelers but they've all refused to go because of the pandemic) so we're kind of on our own and I have some questions that I'd like to list out, hopefully I'll get some answers to appease my nervousness. Thank you in advanced. How does an onboard spending account work? Is $400 for the entire trip enough or should I deposit more? Should I use cash to open the onboard spending account? Are drink packages worth it despite the price? How much cash should I bring to spend onshore? Any tips and tricks for a first time traveler to be well prepared will also be greatly appreciated. I'm very excited and nervous for this trip!
First ever cruise
Jakefield15 posted a topic in People ConnectMy 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.
Grand Suite Freedom of the Seas
InfoNrs629 posted a topic in Royal Caribbean DiningFirst post! Planning to surprise my two children with a cruise next June during my son's *slim* window of opportunity to take a vacation. They will be 17 and 10 at the time. Traveling as a single mom with them, I'm wanting to have as much assistance as possible, so wanted to do a Suite in order to have priority boarding and luggage assistance, plus concierge service. They both wanted to visit PR or Jamaica, so thought Freedom of the Seas from San Juan would be perfect! Also saw this is a good ship for 'first-timers' since it's not as large as the Quantum Class (although we're not technically 1st time cruisers, only have done Disney but I think they've outgrown that and Disney ships are very limited in activities after you've done them so many times!) Is this a good choice or is the ship too small compared to Harmony, to find activities? Is the up price for Suite worth it or should I just do a JS (because we WILL need the extra room for sure!) Any advice greatly appreciated!
