Hello from Cleveland Ohio! My name is Dana, I went on my first cruise in 2011 and never looked back. My first cruise was with Royal Caribbean and I have been a loyal passenger ever since! I'm glad there is so many other "cruise geeks" like me I can talk Royal Caribbean with everyday! Happy cruising all!!!post-4733-0-41219300-1466125783_thumb.jpg

       Hello.  A warm greeting to all from Louisville, KY.  We are Don and Meg and new to cruising.  Our first was last June on Splendour of the Seas in the Eastern Mediterranean.  Wonderful cruise that we enjoyed so much that we're now booked on Oasis in October (Western Caribbean) and just reserved a 10 day Sydney to New Zealand in March 2018.  Looking forward very much to both.  We're still learning the ropes and this site is a wealth of information; thanks to everyone for that.  But must admit that I'm still struggling with some of the acronyms, e.g. BOGO and WOW sale.  Will figure it out eventually...

Family of 3 headed on our 5th RCL cruise. Previously done Freedom twice and Oasis twice.....we're headed for Oasis a 3rd time. Our child loves the Flowrider which is great for us because we love sitting at the back of the ship at the Wipeout Bar!

Welcome to the message boards!

Hi everyone; My name is Vivienne, i am a mother of 7 grown children and 14 grand children. I absolutely love cruising as I find being near water very comforting. My first cruise with Royal Caribbean will be 4th Feb 2017 leaving Sydney as I have always cruised with other cruise lines. My last cruise was a few years ago due to fighting breast cancer and trauma linked with an abusive long term marriage which caused Agoraphobia and Panic disorder.
This cruise is going to be part of my recovery and My sister, 21 year old daughter and I have organized one of those stateroom guarantee balcony so I will be able to find a nice quiet spot by the water when needed. I also love Ice skating so am looking forward to trying that out. My daughter loves rock climbing so I guess that's where she will be. Had a bit of a rough start and confusion around organizing the room with a lack of communication and having to go over the same thing with different people every-time we called but hopefully smooth sailing from now. I will gladly provide my feedback and experiences upon completion of this cruise as I am curious to see how they cope with minor mental health issues in comparison to other cruise lines. So excited.

Welcome.

Glad to hear cruising can offer you some peace, I'm sure many here will agree it's how we cope aswell.

My issues may not sound as serious but cruising is still my 'therapy'.

 

I always look forward to people's reviews when new to cruising (or atleast Royal). I like the fresh perspective.

HI!  My name is Tanya. Our family has 2 RCI cruises booked (just the 4 of us on Oasis in Jan 2017 and an Extended Family cruise to Alaska on Explorer August 2017 - so far 15 of us)- we were able to book 2 RCI under what we would have had to pay for 1 East Carb on Disney.  I have been the person booking everything for both cruises.  So, I am grabbing all the tips and information I can on both ships, ports,  and RCI in general.  We have been on Carnival Spirit to Alaska 2012,  Disney Dream 2012, and Jan 2016 Star Wars Cruise on Disney Fantasy.   What I have learned so far from this awesome podcast is we aren't alone giving RCI a try over Disney.  Our kids love Disney because of the friendships they have been able to make before, during and after the cruise.  I'm hoping they will have the same experience on the Oasis.  So far it is a lot harder to find other cruisers ( I think our Star Wars Cruise last year spoiled us - the kids had pen pals before the cruise and we had meet ups on day 1 and did the fish extenders so had a lot of interactions throughout the experience. )   

 

Overall - THANK YOU Matt for your awesome podcast (by the way I first found you off the joint podcast you did with DCLBlog on Eastern Carib Ports) I have been listening nonstop since and really wish we would have "accidentally" booked on your group cruise instead of the oasis we are on.  
The group cruise sounds so fun!  Maybe winter 2018....

Welcome to the boards, Tanya! So glad you came here and are giving RC a try over DCL.  You are in good company :)

Hi, I'm Wendy. I'm married with 3 daughters age 9, 12, and 17. I've cruised on the Big Red Boat (as a teenager) and just re-discovered how awesome cruising again about 4 years ago. We've been on 3 Carnival trips. We have our first RCI cruise booked for 9/4 on Freedom of the Seas. It's just my husband and I celebrating our 10 year wedding anniversary. I'm counting down the days. Reading everything I can.
