  1. NOT QUITE YET... ....is this going to be a Live Blog. I am NOT looking to set the new World Land Speed Record for starting the earliest Live Blog. It will turn into a live blog MUCH later when we get closer to sail date. I just wanted to announce to the world that the long anticipated 8 night Symphony itinerary for 21 - 29 August 2021 has finally shown up on the website !!!! I've been stalking this cruise for months. They announced the itinerary - Labadee, Aruba and Curacao - months ago, but never opened it for booking until today. I quickly snagged one of the Deck 8 Aq
  2. I tried to utilize my current FCC certificates in their entirety for my future sailings. I have a "chunky one" left over (about $2,500.00) and then I believe an additional one that will have about maybe $160.00 or so when I step off the sailing I assigned the majority of that FCC to. My time is pretty much maxed out as far as sailing goes with sailings in 2021. In order not to lose any of the credits do I have to go ahead and book two additional sailings by 12/21 for sailing by 04/22? Do you think maybe that date would be pushed out a bit? I offered my family to take the hit and do a sai
  3. This is my first blog, so I'm completely open to suggestions, tips, requests, and questions. The Sailing: Feb. 29, 2020 - Symphony of the Seas - Western Caribbean & Perfect Day - 7 nights Pre-Cruise Stay: Fly to Miami 1 day before. Stay in Kimpton EPIC hotel, which is newly renovated. We plan to take an Uber/Lyft to the Terminal and arrive there at 10:00 AM. https://www.epichotel.com/renovation/?utm_source=google&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=Brand-Hotel Name_EXT&utm_term=kimpton epic miami&adpos={adpos}&creative=374937215719&device=c&matc
  4. Hi all. It's Melissa here. I am going to try and do something that I have always wanted to do...A Live Blog of our Symphony of the Seas cruise. Let me first introduce myself. If you watch Below Deck on Bravo then you will understand that I am the primary! AHHHHHH. I love being in charge...lol. Joining me will be my wonderful husband, Axel (6) and Emily (3), my parents, my grandmother, and rounding out my motley crew is my brother. You can probably tell by the name of my blog that we are a family that loves Disney. But a close second would be Royal Caribbean. We will be lavishly livin
  5. : Royal Caribbean International “Whenever you are with me, life plays a beautiful symphony!” --- Avijeet Das For Hubby and I, there is no better way to spend quality couple time together than to go on a cruise. We started off that way on our honeymoon back in 2002 and we have tried to get away around this time every year to celebrate our anniversary. Symphony was on our radar almost two years ago. Being huge OA class fans and having sailed every Oasis class ship so far, sailing this one was a given. I booked this cruise knowing that this summer would be our first chance to s
  6. Is the hibachi part of the UDP? I thought it was an a la carte thing where you get 35$ and pay the extra. However the latest blog here says it isnt included.
  7. Hi everyone! Just wondering what the souvenir cups given with beverage packages are like on symphony of the seas. I've seen some cool looking ones with a chip and also some cheap plastic looking ones. Thanks!
  8. I've talked to two different people recently about height requirements on symphony in splashaway bay and have got 2 different answers. One side said their child couldnt use any slides because she was 41 inches and the requirement was 42. But someone else said the bigger yellow slide was the only one where they enforced a height requirment. Any other info from recent cruisers would be great!
  9. Will be sailing on SOS this August. Have a breathing machine for sleep apnea. Anyone have experience if SOS has distilled water available on board, which I need for the machine, or do I have to bring my own?
  10. I'm interested at what people spent on their deluxe drink package. Cruise planner says 49pp per day but with a note saying its 50 % off the second person. I feel like it was the same without the " deal" so I'm interested what others paid. Note. I'm on the symphony of the seas 7 day eastern carribean
  11. My SemiLive Blog Wowzah! Only 3 more days until we are on a plane to Barcelona! Hard to believe, this past year has flown by so fast. So, let's get down to the nitty gritty and get this show on the road! (props to people who get that reference) Our Cruising History I am sailing with my mother and father who have both cruised 2 and 3 times, respectively. This will be our third family cruise together (which have all been on Royal), and our second time on an Oasis Class ship. We are all from Texas and excited to get away from the 100+°F summer heat as well! The last time we were on a
  12. Just wanted to share a video I recently produced during our Eastern Caribbean cruise onboard the Symphony! https://youtu.be/xoHpBLS2TvY
  13. The title to this post should give a hint of what to expect and why I figured this section is a better venue. Ultimately, it is my unlimited attempt at running a dedicated LIVEish about the UDP. The goal really being a running dialogue on how Unlimited the Unlimited Dining Package really is. I'm also open to asking and answering any questions. Just keep in mind this is a snippet on the grand scheme of things, one week on one ship. So keep in mind, past performance is no guarantee of future results. Haven't really developed a dinner plan yet, staying in a Junior Suite so I'm part of #
  14. Anyone sailing on the symohony of the seas on Nov 2nd?????
  15. Sorry to report folks but your eyes aren't playing tricks. Starting tomorrow I'll be coming to you somewhat live from on board the Symphony of the Seas. This has been a cruise with right around 620 days of waiting. Booked the night reports had started to leak out that Symphony booking had opened up. Little did I know at the time of booking it would be a very short wait to learn this sailing would be part of something much bigger, an official Royal Caribbean Blog Group Cruise. Itinerary is somewhat port heavy, but still has time to relax. Day 1 - Miami Day 2 - Sea Day D
  16. We have the ultimate dining package on the Symphony group cruise over thanksgiving. I know we have to make our reservations once we’re on board, but was wondering if we’d have better luck making the reservations with the Diamond lounge concierge or at one of the specialty restaurants. We made mock reservations in the cruise planner today and not many times available online.
  17. Hi- My husband and I will be on Symphony in April this year. On our day in Costa Maya, we wanted to go see the Mayan ruins (he has never seen them before, I have). However, I was unsure of which tour to book. I was looking at CHACCHOBEN RUINS & BEACH COMBO just because I think it would be nice to have both. Since I've already seen the ruins, I really don't like the idea of spending ALLLLL day just doing the ruins. Just unsure if this one is really worth it or if anyone has gone of this or other excursions with the ruins that they enjoyed. Thanks in
  18. Shamelessly promoting my favourite class of ship again. I came across this video tonight and really wanted to share it. @Matt has some great blog posts comparing the 4 ships but this video was so well put together and gives a great comprehensive visual. Whether you are a first timer or you've sailed all 4, it's still worth a look, especially if you are deciding between them as I find many people are. Also, there are some really good shots of the new features on Symphony, including food shots from Playmakers and Hooked. It's 20min long and there is an ad in the middle but have a look. Can't
  19. Day -2 Well after few months it is time again for funny spelling mistakes/bad grammar and near real time blog. If everything will be ok and nothing change our flight we will be on the Symphony Of The Seas at this Saturday from Barcelona. So why this ship ? – really should I explain why one wants to go on Symphony ? Actually, when the first itineraries were published we already booked a cruise for September time but six weeks ago we decided we need some extra vacation until September, we thought first to travel to Thailand for some land vacation but after checking the Ap
  20. Looking at the Royal app they have listed the menu for Playmakers. Looks like it will be a nice selection of Sports Bar style grub... Time open per the app is 12pm to 2am On thing I did find funny is the Wing Challenge.
  21. It looks like the playmakers Onboard Symphony will serve gourmet burgers, not sure how that will work with Johnny rockets being over the way but we shall see. lots of real beers could b on the cards too along with an arcade and virtual bungee. I cant wait to try her out on April 7th, go to the wipeout bar then down the ultimate abyss for a drink. what do we all think?
  22. Looks like a top speed of 24.3 kn so far! From the free MarineTraffic.com app.
  23. So I'm booked up on Symphony April 7th in a Central park balcony stateroom with the EAT DRINK PLAY perks which include Complimentary lunch for two at Jamies Italian Complimentary bottle of red wine in your stateroom. Private casino gaming lessons from an onboard expert. My question is that for Jamies lunch I presume it would be on a sea day ... but this sailing the only sea day is day 7. my thoughts are that there is no way that all CP staterooms can be seated for lunch on one day so maybe they will open up Jamies for lunch on other days? Does anyone h
  24. While I'm afraid I wont be on the Symphony group cruise on the 17th November I have managed to snag a fantastic deal on the 24th November Sailing! I managed to get a ocean view balcony room for £1450 for 2 guests, usually prices for symphony are in the £1000pp range for a balcony. This price was due to an error on the RC UK website which I exploited and has subsequently been fixed. Im just wondering if anyone has the B2B booked at all?
  25. Hello all!! :D My first time posting something over here in the forums. I'm currently booked on Symphony for her 14 October 2018 sailing but i'm considering a change to an earlier date, probably on her maiden sailing. Would y'all know if it's worth it to be on a Royal Caribbean ship's maiden (or even final) voyage? Would they offer exclusive memorabilia or? Appreciate your replies! :)
