  1. Wow, crazy! Those look like our price in Canadian and I thought that was high (although one cruise has a waterpark up to $150 CAD)
  2. We didn't have on our 6 night in December (unless I missed it)
  3. I know...it's crazy how it varies cruise to cruise. When convert from CAD to USD, our 6 night Adventure was $45. Our 7 night Anthem is $58 (currently on sale) and 4 night Mariner is as high as $70.50. Anthem and Mariner had the $18 "deal" so perhaps they are trying to make up for lost profit.
  4. I totally get the hesitation. Our kids are 14 and 10. We have connecting rooms on our upcoming cruise and then a single room for the remaining ones, but if we were in OPs shoes, I would question it as well. My older one is quite responsible and mature, so I think I'd probably just now, start being ok with it if we had to and didn't want a single room, but we have not yet gone that route (more because of cost of 2 rooms vs the cost of one room that we can manage in). P.S - We don't have internet on the cruise, but of course there is the phone
  5. Was just wondering the same thing. Sound as OP is expecting is nice during the day, but not when trying to go to bed (where you would close your balcony door so true balcony rooms wouldn't hear anything)
  6. Really enjoy your reviews. Looking forward to your comments on the amplified Oasis (and Cats). Enjoy your cruise!
  7. Our kids are no 14 and 10 and have been on 4 Royal cruises and love them. Our next one is in March (Anthem) and the August (4 night Mariner). They have never been to the kids club and just enjoy all the activities - water slides, Laser Tag, Sky Pad, zip line, rock wall, dry slide, and just swimming, exploring, foozball, and exploring the ship. Never a bored moment. Plus they love the meals and the shows (so mine love the MDR as well). I've heard Royal clubs are good but couldn't say.
  8. Good idea. Wish they would have just kept the deck plans as they were so you could tell. We had this set up on Allure and it worked well. Also like the new ships with the sofa bed + trundle bed.
  9. From the old deck plans, there were a few promenade rooms (maybe 4?) that had a sofa bed and a Pullman. Can't tell with the new deck plans si CE all rooms of 4 show with a star. (We booked one of these hoping the Pullman stil exists). Not sure if a Pullman works for OP as they are all adults but just mentioning incase an alternative.
  10. We stayed on deck 10, mid way in a Boardwalk Balcony on Symphony and loved the room. It's fun to people watch, we could see parts of the Aqua show (but don't recommend watching the show for the first time from here) or the movie on the screen, and could see the water in the background looking towards the Aqua theatre. It also is a way to get fresh air and check the weather. Yes, it is a bit noisy at night. For us, it was a muffled sound and was more noticeable when playing a movie than the Aqua show, but nothing that a pair of ear plugs didn't fix. We would have no issue booking one again (except that they can be pricey). We have a Central Park Interior view booked for the future, but can't comment on it yet (and not a balcony).
  11. Where do you purchase these? Don't see them in cruise planner for pre-purchase. Thinking they would be useful for our kids.
  12. With the question of "is it worth it", you need to take into account the cost of your package. It may should like an obvious comment, but the price varies. One of our cruises had DBP at $45 USD (converted from CAD) and we have another at $69.82 USD If counting alcoholic drinks and at $12 each ... for first cruise, it is worth it with 4 drinks. ...for second cruise, it is wroth it with 6 drinks. So you need to do the math based on price and also count any water, coffees, juice, etc
  13. Oasis class is amazing between the incredible shows, food options, areas to explore, etc. Really interested in hearing what you think. We've been on Allure and Symphony (with Oasis booked later in the future), but they're all similar being the same class.
  14. We often do 4 in a room (2 adults , 2 kids -teen and pre teen) and manage fine. It's best when our kids get their own space such as sofabed + Pullman, or the newer sofa beds such as in Symphony when it's actually a sofa and a trundle that pulls out, but we manage with any.
