  1. they do a pregnancy test when you order a cocktail.
  2. if you bring your own drinks, and bring your own friends, and bring your own musical entertainment, it is very similar to Michael's Club.
  3. It is $6.50 per day, per paper, to have it delivered to your room, presuming you are not in a top suite.
  4. +1. For us, this was the main benefit of a PH, along with the extra space.
  5. the executive lounge is a room about 20' by 12' or so that has chairs, reading material, a lounge agent that can help with who knows what, snacks, drinks (coffee/tea/soft drinks). Some people love it, sit around for hours. Some never set foot in it the whole cruise. I was in a PH last cruise and would stop in every couple of days for a soft drink, and to look at the dining menus. There are no windows, so no views. I guess you could hang out there while doing laundry or use it as a meeting place.
  6. thanks! My user name is based on my favorite food from Taco Bell when in high school. That was a long time ago, and my tastes have since matured. We were on the Riviera about a year ago and had a great time also. We picked a good day to leave the midwest!
  7. arrived at port at 2:30pm. 20 minutes from curb to ship - lines very short and quick moving. Already had 1 bottle champagne and dinner- both excellent! Looking forward to 12 days of relaxation.
  8. thanks for the updates. I think we will head over about 2 pm to be safe/avoid lines.
  9. Have they started embarkation yet? trying to decide what time to head to the port.
  10. Does the Riviera use standard US outlets?
  11. I'm confused about all this confusion!
  12. why not? It would be helpful for those of us on future Riviera cruises.
