  1. Past hour
  2. Sounds a bit like the MSC Yacht Club experience. It is not a private elevator but your can use your Yacht Club room card in the forward elevators and they become an Express elevator to the Yacht Club.
  3. We recently did the “Shipwrecked in Havana” tour with FerTours in early March and we really enjoyed our day in Havana (thanks Pepe and Jose). We did a morning walking tour of old Havana, lunch at an authentic Cuban restaurant, and a city tour in a 1951 Chevrolet convertible . Fernando was great replying to our inquiries before we arrived. The only issue we had was going to Havana on a Monday . The government buildings and museums are closed so you can’t go in and see this kind of things. But other than that, a wonderful day.
  4. My mother always said don't worry about what people say about you. If it's nice things who cares? If it's bad things they are just jealous. I always think of that when negative comments are being made about those in the upper ranks of cruise line status. Negative comments are made about this group on all of the cruise line boards not just Royal Caribbean. I don't have a dog in this race since I can't commit to one cruise line.
  5. Ok so we can talk about this? I’m so confused that thread and information that was important in it is this board run by RCCL we really can’t ask questions if there were some comments that were out of line why Wouldn’t they just get deleted ?
  6. https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/919786-REG/olympus_v315040bu000_m_zuiko_digital_ed_75_300mm.html Although a 14-150mm lens (Tamron or the pricier one from Olympus) is more versatile, the 14-42 mm kit lens often supplied with the Mark III has one very appealing feature: a "pancake" form factor that retracts to a length of about an inch. For me, that makes it possible to put the camera into a coat pocket with the lens attached.
  7. Has anyone been able to use drink vouchers on Oasis in main dining room or specialty restaurants?
  8. This is precisely why I've never been on that slide.
  9. Nattie, We were 3 on the 2 day tour and paid about 1200 $. We booked with Red Sun Tours. They were very responsive and nice to deal with.
  10. I hope you get go sail the ship and enjoy the exclusive experience. M
  11. https://www.independent.co.uk/travel/news-and-advice/viking-sky-what-happened-storm-norway-emergency-evacuation-coast-a8837371.html This a report by Simon Calder, a very well respected British travel correspondent. I think questions need to be asked why the ship continued her journey, considering the forecast was so bad, and especially as I read elsewhere that another ship stayed in port.
  12. Taxi van should be able to accommodate all of your bags and passengers. Fare should be about $15+ on the meter.
  13. I should also mention that if I add $2,000 to our rate, it would be about $8,000 less than the current asking price for the DOS.
  14. never have had that experience on any line. We used to do it all the time when we could bring it through security on the plane. Now, not so much. ask your friend where they purchased the booze and how long ago this rule was imposed. I don't think it has been to tell you the truth.
  15. Hi If the new ship doesn't have a proper promenade deck I will just stick to the Queen Mary 2. Deck Chair
  16. I only thing I do as an extra precaution just to have the information is scan the passports and email the copies to myself and wife. As long as I have my phone or access to a computer I can retrieve them incase they are stolen.
  17. I’ve seen a number of threads where demeaning or critical comments or references are made about folks with Pinnacle status. What’s the big deal?
  18. Thank you for taking the time to update us, it must have been worrying times... Safe journey home. Andy
  19. Is there any way to petition to Carnival to make a new beverage package? Like it could be titled "Refresh". This would include all non-alcoholic drinks (sodas, virgin cocktails, smoothies, milkshakes, coffees, etcetera). Royal has a similar thing, and for someone who can't drink alcohol, this would be a nice "middle point" between spending $10/day and $50 per day! I would price this package between $25-30pp/day! What do yall think?
  20. Lots of positive reviews on this board, and some rooms offer a view of the port. 😎
  21. It seems Spectrum is going to have very impressive suite facilities with gold being the highest and silver being the second tier. A lot of talk about how they are moving to the ship within a ship model with highly restrictive access and even private elevators.
  22. From press conference just now: Situation for the ship looks to be better now, expected arrival in Molde is around 15.00 CET, around 2,5 hours from now.
  23. not only is NYC fun to come home to but to sail out of of. I will never forget seeing the lady from the ship and just the entire experience. My least favorite has to be NOLA even though the river is a fun experience. If I remember but it has been years, sailing out of Vancouver was a fun experience and pretty easy. Boston was also a fun place and easy, plus spending a few days in Boston ahead of the cruise was great.
  24. Best is a stretch limo with a stocked bar! 😎 Most would choose UberX or Lift for about $35-40, depending upon where your hotel is in in the PE/FLL area.
