For Fun - Do you Repeat Ships?

Recommended Posts

The only place chairs are at a premium are by the pool both upper and lower decks during seas days.  We just were in Falmouth and stayed on the ship and sat right by the pool lower deck.  It was amazing!  Ship was empty, it's a beautiful thing

(Dream is someday to try a Junior Suite but hasn't happened yet).

 

Careful with that dream, now.  I spoiled myself with a junior suite one time, and now it's like a standard requirement.  I'll occasionally settle for an ocean view when it's a short getaway or a last minute decision, but now that I've finally figured out the royal up thing, I'm in real trouble.

Oh, junior suite just came available? GRANDE suite, you say?

Guilty of repeat sailings with Royal Caribbean: Allure 3 times, Harmony 3 times and an upcoming b2b on Harmony in May 2019.  Love the ship, itinerary and staff. We follow  Concierge like they’re family.  We never get anxious about doing everything on one sailing, but we’d love to have a perfect day st  CoCo Cay in May!   Some of our best travels are  from our Suite to the Suite Lounge/Coastal Kitchen, sunning and sipping on the balcony.  Our land travels take us to other places. Our cruises are to relax in familiar retreats, sometimes with family but more often just the 2 of us.  If loving the Caribbean is wrong...I don’t wanna be right!

I think when you repeat a ship, it feels more like home!  I know this sounds crazy, but this allows you to find everything more quicker and you have the chance to sail with the same crew.  There is nothing like walking down a hallway and one of the cabin stateroom attendants or any cruise staff say hello to you by name.  Wilma on the Freedom is awesome and my great friend Usha on the Allure.  Can't wait to see her in March!

The above is true. We were on Majesty three times last Summer. The crew was just awesome. It was great going that people knew your name. Felt like Norm from Cheers.

Lol...can totally see that.  We typically do insides for the price (promenade) but we did try and balcony last summer and see the fuss.  Our upcoming cruises are a mix (including a balcony) and I totally get what you're saying.  My mentality used to be "we're never in the stateroom except to sleep and shower so doesn't matter" but even that hour in the morning watching the sun rise while waiting for our kids to get up was heaven.  And this summer we're trying 2 staterooms so may be hard to return to one.  Then...if we ever try JS, can imagine the space and normal bathroom will be wonderful and hard to return.  All very addicting and with each one, there is something better. 😀

Absolutely, been on Grandeur 3 times with a 4th one scheduled ...... We love Lady G --- Although the main contributing factor is her proximity to where we live .... Maryland.   No flying involved.

Same for us, Poo-bah. We sail frequently on Brilliance as we live across the Bay from Tampa. Can't beat the convenience, out of our condo, up the Interstate and on board in an hour!

Wow --- that's nice ..... we're not that close to Baltimore (about 2 1/2 hours west) --- we are literally at the western end of the state (closer to Pittsburgh or Morgantown, WV).

Speaking of Brilliance, we'll be on her in April for Easter.....it'll be our first time on a Radiance Class.  Looking forward to it.

I think you will really enjoy that class of ship, not too big but big enough to keep adults occupied and interested. Aft of the WJ, there is a fairly large open-air seating which is perfect for breakfast or a morning coffee or lunch or just about anything. Lots of glass, you can see water from almost any inside location, and the Schooner Bar is perfectly located for a drink and a view. The crew is really friendly and helpful. We've done Thanksgiving aboard her for the last three years and have a fourth planned for 2019. Enjoy your Trip!

In 2015, 2016 and 2017 we were in nothing but Jr. Suites, all on different ships, fell in love with them, then July of last year decided to book a last minute cruise on Allure in October, the only thing available was a balcony, when we got to the room and opened the door the look on my wife's face was priceless, she was "How are we going to fit in this room?" I just said, a cruise, no matter what is better than no cruise at all, we just ended up spending more time in the Diamond lounge than normal.

Umm....I need to be there in person when you walk into your cabin on the Anthem GC!  Can't wait to see her face then from what you just came from! 😂

Don't worry about feeling to bad, it's a Grand Suite so I'm sure she can suffer though that, she is spoiled though...

And you can tell her I said  that.

I’ve been on the Independence and the Anthem with the Navigator coming in the spring. Since I’m still so green I’m trying to spread the adventures out amongst the fleet. However if I were able to organize a family reunion and everyone decided on a ship I had already been on I wouldn’t be upset.
