  1. There is also a "green" light on the bathroom door switch ( room side of door) that gives plenty of light to find the bathroom...just about drove me nuts (our balcony room had the bed next to the bathroom, and I slept on that side) 😏
  2. On Symphony last week...for lazer tag sign up was only offered once on board. Pretty fun!
  3. We were on Symphony last week with a stop at CocoCay Friday (the 20th). All shore excursions were cancelled due to the weather. We did; however, opt to keep our chill island cabana. We had # 8...perfect location. The weather was lousy..high winds and rain. The one thing we noticed was that cabanas 1-4 had water and black seaweed/grass not only up to the "porch" but even running under the cabanas...not a pretty site. There was a "buzzer" to signal the attendant for food/drinks. Towels, bottled water were provided.
  4. I have noticed a few posts that the Ovation is not visiting Endicott Arm and Dawes glacier due to ship size/ice floats. Just wondering how often this is occurring. Thinking I may need to reconsider our booked July 2020 Ovation Alaska cruise. Thanks !
  5. Just received an email from Royal offering a Royal Up for a spacious ocean view with large balcony. I am curious as to where this type of stateroom is located on the ship. This category sleeps 6; not having any luck locating on deck plans. Thanks so very much!
  6. I am also curious as to whether a cabana could be switched. I reserved months ago, and also hope we are not assigned in #1, 2, or 3...(no "porch"). Please let us know.
  7. Checking my cruise planner this morning, there is additional info regarding the Chill Island cabanas...as regarding to cabana # reserved. OVERVIEW This is the beach day you’ve been dreaming about— kicking back in your own private cabana of up to 8 of your friends and family with a direct ocean view. All your beach day favorites are here: powdery sand, crystal clear tropical waters, ice-cold drinks and fresh food right off the grill. Take chill to the next level in a private cabana, complete with resort-style chaise lounges, a lush sectional sofa, complimentary towels, nearby snacks at Chill Grill, and a Cabana Concierge. If you’re looking for adventure, you’ll find shore excursions like jet skiing and snorkel tours nearby. You’re miles away from ordinary— but right in the center of ahh-mazing. Space is limited. Reserve your cabana pre-cruise for the biggest savings, only available on Cruise Planner. Pricing is per cabana, not per person. Night Prior to Perfect Day at CocoCay Port Day: • You will receive a letter in your stateroom that includes your tickets, cabana number, and a Cabana Map to help you locate your cabana. Perfect Day at CocoCay Port Day: • Proceed to your Chill Island Cabana Concierge. The location is indicated on your Cabana Map. • Your Cabana Concierge will take your tickets and provide you with wristbands for your whole party. • Your Cabana Concierge will then escort you to your private cabana, so you can kick back, relax and enjoy!
  8. Try the link "Research" at the top of the Cruise Critic page. Scroll down the page to Reviews, then drag down to any particular ship are interested ...select "find a ship".
  9. We have been assigned E for our chill island cabana for Symphony week of Sept 14, 2019.
  10. Regarding the $50 on-board credit for switching to the Hilton, has anyone else received this? I just checked my account...no such credit showing. Thanks!
  11. We have also been moved to the Hilton Hawaiian Village Waikiki Beach Resort.
  12. Could I please get a copy of the dailies? I can't seem to get the drop box to download. Wonderful review!! geridwest at yahoo dot com
