  1. I’ve heard it said that the two longest weeks in cruising are the one just before you sail and the one right after you come home. I can’t remember which is supposed to be worse than the other, but right now, 10 days out, is pretty rough. I have a cruise crush who only sails solo, and only on another line, but he writes the best live blogs and I wait for them like I was the one cruising. I’m going to try to ease my impatience by following his example and start a pre-cruise live review. February of last year, my sister and I took our first cruise together. It was a first cruise for both of
  2. Friends, Took your advice ; at the Port by 1000hrs, we were checked in by a roving RCCL rep & were on the ship within minutes of arriving in the upstairs lounge. This sailing was packed, families everywhere as it was Thanksgiving week & all the kiddos were off but besides day 1 and that horrible drill with movie, the only time we felt the numbers were if we needed elevators, we used the stairs a lot. Side note we all showed up for the drill, suffered in silence standing with hundreds of our closest sailing friends in customer service area and then received a letter scolding us for
  3. Hello all. My wife and I are taking our first cruise. Late bloomers so to speak. Both in early 60's. We are going with a few other family members. Sailing on Dec. 30th for 11 days in the Southern Caribbean aboard Serenade of the Seas. We have a large balcony room. I have read on blogs that your first cruise should be a short one to make sure it is something we like. That didn't happen. Anyone go on the New Years cruise? What can we expect? We are very active and like to have a good time in everything we do. Thank you for any advise you care to share.
  4. We have previously only sailed Disney because we were just used to it & once familiar so easy. I'm reaching out to fellow cruisers who have sailed both Disney & RC. Our daughter is 13 and of course grew up in the Oceaneers & Edge. Is there something comparable to the youth activities area's on the Harmony? Do we have to register ahead of time? We are simply bored at Disney right now & wanted to take the plunge on another line, we always heard RC spoken about on the Disney ships. Input on anything would be so appreciated, I want to relax but for me that means minimal surprises.
  5. I'm taking my friend for his first cruise this coming May on Adventure. Unfortunately he has HSP (hereditary spastic paraplegia) and requires at times his scooter to get around. Even though we booked the cruise well in advance, there were no accessory rooms available . I don't think it will be a big deal as he doesn't need it in the room to get around, only when we go out perusing about the ship or at the ports. Plus, our TA informed us that the crew can take the scooter and park / charge it overnight in a specified area and have it back at our cabin the next morning. I know that thi
  6. Hi everyone, I think I've made a mistake by researching a little *too much*, you find out info, but then you keep digging and get all the bad too! I totally understand that you can't please everyone and every cruise/port/ship/company is going to have those comments of unhappy people, but something I'm concerned about is excursions by myself with my kids. I've read a couple places that say Jamaica is dangerous and so are other ports of call. I was wanting to do some structured excursions (looking at the horseback riding in Jamaica and possibly something in Cozumel) and I for SURE am
  7. Greetings! Huge multi-family get together booked on Allure of the Seas for an Eastern Caribbean fun time 04/23/17-04/30/17. Please bear with me as some of these questions might be redundant to past posts. I have scoured this site and read as much as I could and am grateful for the assistance thus far. Here are my questions... 1. I did sign up to be a Crown Member (I see future cruises on the horizon) should I wait to get on board to see if there is a bigger discount for the deluxe drink package? Right now there is the usual 20% and the currently advertised Sip and Stream (which is a
