Anyone on this sailing? It's our 30th wedding Anniversary Celebration sailing. We are in a Crown Loft ( Lift & Shift from 01 August Allure 2021 I believe.)

This is going to be our last sailing for a while, taking a break and doing land vacations for a minute until Royal figures things out.

I did it, I just ordered my ducks and tags, since this is a special cruise I will be hiding ducks! I can't wait, I LOVE finding them so if you find the Neesa from Tampa duck please post it on this site, we don't mess with Face Book! 

Still looking forward to this one, thanks for all the hard work making this happen @Sharla I know it took some doing 🙂

So after this sailing it's a lift and shift with my remaining FCC's we are taking a break from sailing Royal. I have since cancelled my November 2022 sailing as well. We did our part, we supported them the entire way but as of right now for us the costs just don't justify the experience. We were used to a much different product.

Again this is our experience. To go out in a memorable way including my ducks above I just went to the bank and took out a few hundred (2) in this special currency. I hope they bring some joy to those we tip, I know I just love them!

Heard from concierge, pretty much as follows; book your own shows and no to "the World" from Wonderland for our dessert in CK for 30th anniversary. While Im disappointed Im not surprised.  All good Im still happy! They did say they booked us a 6 top at Jaimes on night 3 when we are dining with friends one less thing for this activities director! Lol!!

I asked for the entertainment schedule and I think it's packed with very little substance. Just my opinion someone else may love it. No aqua water heist, no Columbus, no tribute bands...jugglers and comics, oh my! 

Still going to make the most out of every minute for sure. I really enjoy the CLS on 17 so there's that. As an aside I watched Jason Liberty today on Barron's Round Table, he needs some polish. I did not feel he exuded confidence or even likeability. Granted he is stepping into big shoes but I went, humph now I know why my past few sailing were, meh.

Quick update as I am not live blogging this anniversary sailing. The ship is packed, I am so glad we are on 17. Snagged a suite deck "cabana thing" chilling here all day. Drinks and pizza that's all I'm doing. After 30 years fancy is over rated. Pleasant surprise, while hiding ducks this morning ( all 3 of us) we happily found 2 different families ducks. Joy joy happy duck floss dance and then I replaced with my duck! 

Crew is outstanding even with capacity that is crazy normal. Best crew since the restart. Entertainment lacking bigly, jugglers and comedians, meh! Grease and fine line and 2 ice shows limited showings but better then nothing. 

House band better then any one we have experienced yet. No additional tribute bands but still happy to make due with Libertys idea of entertainment. No hiest water show, no Columbus (sad). 

Coastal Kitchen night one outstanding, lots of pins. Some really nice friendly ones this sailing. They did come early and take over CK but they earned it so...here they boarded Star, Pinnacle and then suites and then D + and then everyone else.

CLS love this cabin.  Super clean and great stewards for the room. Gorgeous weather super blessed...

Trying to go to loyalty party tomorrow a.m. for numbers for you guys. Did I mention we are back? This ship is packed! OMG I forgot, it was @WAAAYTOOOwho told us this, our concierges typed one answer but once on board they are amazing. So friendly trying to accomodate my few requests. These two have smiles for days and are true concierges. Their skills are with people not emails, a win win!!

Okay I can.not.resist. a little shade today. (Pun intended) As you know I am on the suite deck perched high above the Solarium.  I've been here since before 10 as today is our anniversary and we want to do minimal as we reflect on the last 32 years when we actually met. 

There have been towels and sandals on chairs below us since then, it is now 1320. Just why???

Riddle me this. Why do people get drinks food etc and leave? The mess left behind just bothers me, why? I continually watch people vacate area below and leave their refuse and empty glasses resulting in being knocked over by the wind and creating a mess, just why? When I leave my area you don't even know I was here.

And finally and this is a biggie. Hubby and I in the hot tub up here and another family joined no worries.....but they just dumped their little kids in the hot tub and one was being held in off to the side of us LITTLE. Like younger then toddler. No swim diapers just why? Adults didn't get in, we left just because...ewwww.

Reminded me of the Disney concierge area, I don't enjoy it.

I hate this! We are the same way. When we get to a spot, we always leave the area better looking than it was before. I happen to believe that is just common courtesy.

Amen, right? The crew must really hate some people at times. Just makes me crazy. I scout out garbage receptacles on my way to my "camp out area"

Yes I'm paying a lot for my vacation but it doesn't give me license to be a pig!

No disrespect to pigs!!!

We just side stepped to Puerto Rico. Captain John said medical emergency had to be taken to hospital critical care needed. Rumor mill says heart attack in the casino, docked, ambulance pulled up and off we go. Puerto Rico was beautiful at night. Prayers for the family that is experiencing this awful health emergency. 

Here is our room attendant, he has 21 years experience and is so unassuming and kind. Clearly skills for days. Juggler again but horrible  this time. His show was like watching paint dry, ugh!!

Warning, ugly rant ahead:

Ugh, this is 17 right? Ding dong ditches are in full force and someone took my home made door magnets, I'm going to search for them tomorrow. Hopefully they are just transferred to another door, gees. Our neighbors were throwing food off the balcony to feed the seagulls today (they ordered room service breakfast and lunch)  it was like the birds movie with seagulls; lots of droppings on the balcony. No more summer break sailings on Royal, just no. 

Thank you, rant over.

All of my 30 ducks hidden, I found some lovelies along the way! Thanks duck loving families, so much fun. 

Well 28, we met some grandparents in the lounge after being so impressed by their 2 young men (grandkids) they were adorable maybe ages 8 and 10. They dress for dinner and are being taught dinner etiquette, so adorable. I saved 2 and when I saw grandpa with them (because never take anything from strangers and I wasn't sure of their cabin up here and was not going to inquire, borderline creepy) I ran back to the cabin and gave them 2. So much joy, especially for me! 

Oh, found my magnets on random doors on 17 also happy!

Found some more ducks. California and Florida. I love how this is taking off. Even hubby is having fun, he just asked me are we going to hide ducks the next time we decide to cruise? Wow! 

OMG daughter won a long twisty plastic snake and put it in my bed, apparently room steward was doing turn down and it scared him silly. After he chased around his partner with it he put it back. Then he thanked me for the laugh. What, she did what? I'm so sorry, I made her go apologize as well; gees. 

Reynaldo is our #CK server so good we requested him every night. CK is busting at the seems, full suites and pinnacles it's  very popular this sailing. It's 2120 and it's still bustling with very few empty tables.

Grease was a nice change of pace with the limited entertainment offerings. Unfortunately for the family in front of us their 2 young boys loved the rapid hip thrusting, they stood up and thrusted with wild abandon, poor mom yelling stop that, sit down. Meanwhile my laugh, so unexpected I just howled which encouraged them more. Sorry mom! Best moment of the show! I also miss Columbus the musical. I enjoyed that one but those young kids. Haha better then the fat shaming juggler last night!

Captain Johnny is funnier and a better communicator then this CD. I run to the door for hallway announcements he makes me howl. 

Pinnacles melt down last night in #CK. Next table over from us, they ordered salads from Chops, sushi from Izumi and the waiter hesitated and got the head waiter. They were kindly and gently told no and they lost it, one raised her voice promising terrible reviews and a letter to Michael Bailey, sheds some light now on why I couldn't get the world dessert. Apparently this is a thing, these multiple requests from different venues by the pins. The sailing must be taxing for them with lack of etiquette at every turn its true, they have been sailing for some time so it's got to be frustrating but the melt down was kind of epic.

Unless they had the Unlimited DP I don't see why they thought they would be eligible for ANYthing from a specialty restaurant.
