  1. Does HAL initiate the upgrade offer or does one have to apply for an upgrade? TIA
  2. Also Game On. Another fun venue is The Bleacher Bar. It is situated under the Bleachers with garage like doors that open up so u can c the players warming up before the game. You enter the restaurant from outside Fenway.
  3. We were told 6 years ago when we received our Global Entry cards we would only need to show them when traveling into Canada. However we had to show them at Port Everglades after cruising. So it is a good idea to have it with you. Also when traveling to New Zealand there was a separate line for Global Entry and we needed the card. Never could figure out why NZ honored it but was happy.
  4. Thank you so much Anne. One last question. Is it easy to access hop on hop off bus from here?? Sue
  5. Another hotel question Anne. We Will be in Dubai the end of March. The two hotels I have narrowed it down to are Hyatt Regency Dubai and Sheraton Dubai Creek Hotel. We like being close to airport and cruise terminal. Also we would like to be able to be fairly close to the main attractions. I realize there are many. We would probably start with hop on hop off bus to give us an overview. Is this doable and are the hotels nice? Again thanks so much. We all appreciate your help. Sue
  6. I did check them on YouTube. It appears most of the singers are female. They all had great voices but I found the songs really boring. I can understand people walking out as I would probably fall asleep listening to them. Too bad as the performers seem very talented.
  7. Oh my. Do they rotate entertainment on long voyages?? We have a 32 day cruise booked. Not liking what I am reading.
  8. Thanks all for this. I couldn’t figure out how to log on to CC on my iPhone. Never had a problem before over many years. Curious how this all of a sudden became a problem.
  9. Have been on many cruise lines but not HAL. We do have one coming up in a year. We r church goers. Go to mass every Sunday so when on a cruise if mass is offered on Sunday we will usually go. In reality the numbers of people attending are pretty low so this obviously is not an important priority to most people on the ship. When there are thousands of passengers and about 40 show up I can certainly understand why the cruise companies are phasing these services out. They just aren’t important to a lot of people. The new order.......
  10. The entertainment was excellent from ice show to Mama Mia to diving show to schooner bar and much more. The solarium was great including the very nice buffet for lunch and breakfast although we did have breakfast also in MDR and Johnny Rockets. Also the Park Cafe was good. Surprisingly the service and food in MDR were quite good. We did not do any specialty dinning. Another surprise was the availability of deck chairs. Obviously with 6000 people on board you would expect some log jams. Really didn’t affect us at all except for the Windjammer which we just avoided. Embarkation and disembarkation was best we have ever done!! all in all RCL seems to have figured out how to manage these mega ships. We were skeptical but glad we experienced it. That being said our next cruise is on 680 passenger Azamara ship. Lol 😂
  11. Not to worry. DH and I did Allure at the ripe old age of 75 and 73. Did it just to experience a mega ship not expecting to be impressed. Wrong. It was really enjoyable. Only thing we did do was avoid the windjammer. However there are many other options. Have a great cruise!!
  12. What is the benefit of buying one of these dining packages precruise? It appears you can’t make precruise reservations.
