  1. The ABC's are by far our favorite itinerary, particularly when it's 8 or 9 nights. Dan
  2. Looking forward to reading more. Loved the Navigator when we sailed her in March. Would love your opinion of the common areas of the Navigator versus the Escape when you get a chance. How was the Royal Promenade on the Navigator versus the main “centrum” style that is on the Escape? Also, how did the pool areas compare? Dan
  3. The longer cruise and southern Caribbean wins it for me. Dan
  4. If you have time breakfast in the main dining room is very enjoyable for us. Same for lunch. No crowd issues Dan
  5. Pigs in a blanket. Love it. Hadn’t thought of those since my grade school cafeteria days. Now it’s making me hungry. 😋. Used to enjoy them with a mix of basic ketchup and mustard.
  6. Can’t really compare like that IMO, or at least you never USED to be able to. Even high end dining on cruises used to be offset by your cruise fare. However with the way specialty dining costs are going they are charging similar to full land based prices now anyway. Part of the reason we won’t justify it. Dan
  7. Looking at the new plans it looks like the 4 person rooms with 2 pullmans are changing to 3 persons rooms with one pullman. Thankfully that still works for our family of 5 Dan
  8. I don’t get it. So some inside connecting rooms on Freedom and Voyager class ships have built in Pullman beds in the cabin for 4. They can’t remove them. You’re saying they just won’t allow 4 in a cabin even though there are 4 beds? Dan
  9. I’ve never noticed forward cabins being any rougher than aft on any of the ships I’ve been on. Dan
  10. As much as I like BBQ there is no way I would pay $12-15 for it on a cruise when there are other great options included in the cruise fare. However, $13 for one mixed drink? No problem! That’s kind of tongue-in-cheek because I think Royals drink prices are ludicrous also. Dan
  11. Kennedy Space center is incredible. Being so close to Disney World, you can tell that they took some design and crowd handling queues from them, as well as the whole customer experience. The space program is so inspiring, and seeing Atlantis up close is really cool. If you can, make sure you take the bus tour out to the launch pads and then do the Saturn 5 rocket center. Hope you have a great day! DAn
  12. I actually asked the RCCL representative and she said it was possible, people don’t show up for cruises all the time. 😉 However it’s quite an up charge to pay for a third person for the extra square footage of those cabins. In that case it does not make it worth it. Dan
