  1. Hey im going on my first cruise with my family in January and ive heard so much about the food on cococay and I was wondering a couple of things. Can you take food off of cococay back with you onto the ship? Im a small eater normally so I wouldn't be able to shove down all the great sounding food in such a short time :) also if I have the soda package will I have to pay extra for getting the soda from the Island? Ive seen a lot of people saying about a 12% fee per drink on the island. Thanks for any help im rather excited about going just not about all the food I know I am going to eat lol
  2. I put together a 49 second video showing several meals eaten onboard Rhapsody of the Seas last week. There are a few bites that were eaten on land, but the majority of food was consumed on the ship. Enjoy! IMG_0583.MOV
  3. I know there is always talk about watching the online cruise planner for sales and price changes on the Ultimate drink package... and I have seen the price for that fluctuate from $46 to $56 pp/pd for my upcoming Harmony cruise. BUT, I have also been watching specialty dining options... mainly a single night at Chops or the Chops +1 package. Those prices have been the same for as long as I can remember. (49.99 and 74.99) Has anyone ever seen them go down?? Thanks
  4. One of our favourites is the Hard Rock in St Thomas. It's quite hidden away but when you find it's great. The food was good and fast and the best part is at the back of the restaurant there is a balcony with a few tables , THE VIEWS OVER ST THOMAS HARBOUR ARE STUNNING. It's been a while since we have been there so I hope it's still there. On our next Cruise which is in October 2013 on the Independence of the seas we are going to the Canaries and one of the places we visit is Funchal Madeira. We have been told that one of the best places to try Is Reids. Has anyone tried it and any advice on what to try.
  5. My fiancé and I are taking two cruises (one on Navigator and one on Symphony) in September 2020 for our honeymoon. We are normally pretty frugal travelers when it comes to food, as we prefer to spend money on experiences. This will be my third RC Cruise and his first. I’ve never been to a specialty restaurant, aside from Johnny Rockets, but was very intrigued by wonderland when I went on Harmony with my family a few years ago. We’re pondering trying one special night there, but wondering if it will be worth it. We’re open to trying new things, but I wouldn’t say we’re super brave when it comes to food. I’m also a vegetarian (eggs and dairy only). With this in mind, do you think that would be a good place for us to try or pass since we’re on the fence?
  6. Just asking if anyone has gotten ill after eating on Coco Cay? We left on a Sunday, were on Coco Cay Monday and Tuesday morning got ill. (No, it was not self induced) and lasted 3 days. Just trying to figure out what happened. We’ve been on numerous cruises and never had an issue, so we do consider ourselves fortunate. We always wash our hands...
  7. We are sailing on Enchantment on August 28th. What I like least About cruising is very early afternoon on embarkation day when everyone is jammed into the Windjammeir. to circumvent this I went ahead and pre-purchased lunch at Chops. We have an active 18 month old who will be on his third cruise (Alaska, Bahamas & now Mexico) and eats like gangbusters. Question!!! What are his option for what RC consider No Charge for under age 3. THX
  8. You all have been amazingly resourceful so far! I was wondering about food at Adventure Ocean. My son, who will be just short of six when we take our first cruise, will likely be there much of the day time when we are at sea. I know about the kids' dining options at the dining room, but is there food available at OA for the kids? He seems to be hungry (hangry, more like it!) ALL THE TIME, and it would be awesome if they either had regularly scheduled snacks or a pantry with food. I haven't seen anything about this on any website! Thank you all. Valerie
  9. I have cruised twice before and honestly don't really know the answer to this question. How do we know what food/drink/dining is included in our cruise fare? I do know that Chops Grille, Sabra, Izumi, are NOT included and that Windjammer and the Main Dining Room ARE...but how do we know what else is? How do we know what we can just walk in and get? Like for lunch/snacks/etc. Sorry if this is a silly question... Specifically: we are cruising on the Independence 12/6/2018-12/10/2018
  10. I am going on TA cruise to Miami, and am not flying home but going to family in Miami after the cruise for a couple of weeks, family members have requested food items bought over to them from the Uk, things like, tea bags, chocolate, crackers, popadums, crisps, all new in their original packets, so am I able to take these in a case and store them in my cabin until I get to Miami or will they be confiscated either on the ship or at port, they will be in a suitcase.
  11. We are sailing on the July 15th cruise. In Bahamas my wife and I are interested in an excursion through Tru Bahamian where you cook a three course meal with the chef at Graycliff. We have done their other walking tour and want to try this one. Issue is price is very high for just two people. If we get 6 more more very affordable for what they offer. Please DM is anyone is interested to join on Monday, June 16th.
  12. Will there be food available on the day of disembark?
  13. Hi all! My husband and I are thinking of going on our very first cruise in December on the 4 night Bahamas cruise on the Enchantment of the Seas. I was hoping to get some input from previous cruisers on a couple questions/concerns: - What all is included in the cost of the trip? (I have read different things saying that no drinks are included or that a few drinks are included like water and tea. Just wanted to get an official answer!) - Is the Enchantment ship a stable ship? I know that you can't account for rough seas from a storm, etc. but my husband does tend to get motion sick but I have been hearing that stabilizers are being used a lot more often on cruise ships to help cut down the rocking. Hoping Enchantment uses this as well! Thank you in advance everyone! :)
  14. I think Royal Caribbean needs to update some info on their Website. When we booked our Cruise back in November for this upcoming April 19th it stated that FREE ROOM SERVICE was all included in our cost. Feeling kind of "jipped." Think they should give onboard credit to those who had booked prior to this $7.95 charge that they are adding soon. ONE FARE COVERS EVERYTHING FROM RELAXATION TO ROOM SERVICE~ this is from their website~~~sad!!
  15. Hi All, Thanks for taking the time to read the post and I appreciate any comments. On one of the podcast I believe Matt mentioned that under some circumstances it's possible to take some food from the main dining room back to your room to eat later (like if you aren't feeling great or something like that). Sometimes I'm too full for dessert but I eat it anyway because ... you can't miss out on dessert on a cruise! I was wondering if its possible to maybe take the dessert or something back to the room to enjoy later instead of eating it when I am so full. Similarly, at the specialty dinning restaurants I have heard the desserts are wonderful. Can you take a dessert for later from a specialty restaurant? Thanks again!
  16. Hi all! I think I've posted on here before, but I am back as we get closer to our cruise date (Feb 3rd). My wife and I are going on the Majesty of the Sea. We stop at Nassau on Saturday and Cocokay on Sunday. This is the first time we've ever been on a cruise so really no idea what to expect. I do have a few questions though.... With the drink packages I saw something that said that 18% gratuity is automatically added at the bar. I have the drink package where I can basically get anything. Would the 18% be on top of that or is it automatically in the with package? Specialty coffees are not included from what I read. How much does a latte or something similar cost? We have a shore excursion at Nassau (snorkling). Do you think the directions to get to where we need to go for the shore excursion are pretty clear? Once we are off the boat, how easy is it to get a meal and is that a part of the ships complimentary food? How long does it take to get off and get back on the ship? How are the mosquitoes this time of year (zika virus concerns)? We will be sailing during the superbowl. I normally am not too concerned, but I have a few bets placed this year. The superbowl is supposed to start during our my time dinning. Do they have TVs in the room to check the score every so often? Thanks for all the help! N00BCruiser
  17. So my question is, what is actually free in regards to food or anything liquid you consume? Is the tap water on the ship revolting? Should I even purchase the Evian bottled water? What food is actually free? (I'm aware there are specialty dining that are at additional cost) Is the captains dinner, fancy dining room free? I am purchasing the soda package, will i be charged for orange juice or black coffee in the morning during room service or on the main cafe? Sorry to bombard with so many questions, i've only ever cruised on a Carnival ship 9 years ago... And it feels like Royal Caribbean wants to bleed me dry of my money when they already charge a hefty amount for the cruise itself. :unsure: Thanks in advance!
  18. Hi all! My wife and I are celebrating some big milestones (turning 30 and 5 year wedding anniversary) so we booked a cruise in February on the Majesty of the Sea. It is a 3 day cruise (cocokay and Nassau). I have no idea what to expect. I have no idea what to do for dinning. What/where do we eat at the ports? When do we get to see about shows or entertainment on the ship? Basically Im looking for a walk through so I dont have to ask a million questions when we get on the boat (even though I still will).
  19. I am curious, what the menu selections are like for the MDR for meals. Is there a copy of menus somewhere ? ( i.e. Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner) We are sailing Navigator of Sea In Aug
  20. See CDC link below. Overall Royal Caribbean’s food and prep is very good. The scores range from 86-100 (“Inspections scores of 85 or lower are NOT satisfactoryâ€). 22 ships of Royal Caribbean’s fleet were evaluated. The arithmetic mean for all 22 ships was 96.54. 2 of Royal Caribbean ships scored 100. They were the two “R†ships. The Radiance of the Seas and the Rhapsody of the Seas. The lowest score of the fleet was from the Freedom of the Seas (86). Click on “reports†and you can see all the noted infractions. Overall Royal Caribbean fared very well. Note: Disney's fleet scored exceptionally high among it's competitors. Here’s the CDC link: http://wwwn.cdc.gov/InspectionQueryTool/InspectionResults.aspx
  21. Thought it would be good to see what your all time top 5 restaurants are past and present and maybe over time we might see an overall clear favourite. As we only cruised with RC for the first time last year we can only list our choice from the Independence but that will change over time as we sail on more ships. 1) Chops Grille 2) Giovanni's Table 3) Windjammer 4) MDR 5) Johnny Rockets BON APPETIT :D :)
  22. Hello All, I will be on Allure of the Seas in February and I am very excited. I am calling it the Superbowl Cruise since it is during the Superbowl! Anyhow, for those of you who have been on Allure before, can you tell me how the food at the Windjammer is onboard? I have heard that the Windjammer on Allure is not that good. I cruised on Vision of the Seas this past May and I thought the Windjammer was pretty good... Hit and miss but overall good. Also, what speciality restaurants are not to be missed? We stuck to the main dining room and Windjammer on Vision and would like to branch out more this time. Thanks in advance!
  23. I would like to see maybe something like an IHOP or a Mel's Diner because you seem to always have choices for your evening meal but it would be great to have that choice for breakfast. There's just something about a stack of pancakes with a side of sausage or bacon
  24. Have boycotted Royal Caribbean for the last two years because of declining standards in food and service, we decided to chance another cruise(our ninth with RC) in April of this year. The cruise was 7 days aboard the Freedom of the Seas, sailing to the western Caribbean out of Port Canaveral. The Freedom is the largest ship on which we have had the pleasure of sailing. To our surprise, food and service standards had improved significantly since our last cruise. Overall the food quality was excellent. Royal Caribbean has obviously responding to customer demands in that area. As usual, the shows were superb. However, I have a large nit to pick regarding dress standards in the dining room on formal night. On such nights my wife and I prefer to be dressed for the occasion, as do the majority of guests. However, amongst the crowd are a few who just don't seem to get it. A fellow sitting next to us, who looked to be in his thirties, was attired in an orange flex shirt, cutoffs, sandals and an orange cap, turned backwards. He insisted on called the waiter, "Dude!" in a loud voice. To the disgust of those sitting around him, he began to utter a string of profanities. "Look at this effin' fancy ass food!" said he. "It's like bein' in an effing five-star restaurant!" No attempts were made to stem his behaviour. All those unfortunates who happened to be sitting around him were forced to listen to his boneheaded tirades for the balance of the evening. At least on Day 2, someone mentioned that he might want to remove his hat, which he did, albeit with some effing complaints. Thankfully, on Day 3, he and his party were moved to a far away alcove, where he could spew his invective in splendid isolation. Another erudite diner attempted to enter the dining room bare-chested, if you please. Apparently, he had just come from the pool, as his swimming trunks were still damp. If I begin to sound like a snob, I am most assuredly not. As is the case with good manners, dressing properly is to me, a gesture of respect directed toward those who would serve you and your fellow diners. Royal Caribbean would to well to better monitor these types of situations.
  25. I Haven't tried either yet as the Independence will be our first RC cruise. We was looking forward to trying Portofino but after her refurb it looks like it's been replaced by Giovanni's. Have we now missed out on a good restaurant or is Giovanni's just as nice.
