  1. Definitely an option for one day in the future. Unfortunately the transatlantic cruises don't fit well at all with my work schedule and being able to get the time off at that time of year. One day hopefully!
  2. Would love longer cruises on the Oasis Class ships, especially coming from the UK a 9 night would be perfect. Indy does/ used to do 14 night from Southampton but sailing RCI from Southampton is very expensive so it's oddly cheaper for us to sail from Florida. We did a 9 night Navigator cruise and loved it! I'd be happy if they offered more longer cruises on Mariner/ Navigator to be honest as I after the amp they are great ships, a good size for me and able to get into more ports.
  3. I was on Navigator just under a year ago, I was worried I would find it too small or less things to do compared to Oasis Class, however I couldn't have been more wrong! I had the best time on Navigator and now she's been amped there is loads to do. I loved the new water slides, and the entertainment on board was excellent. I'd go back on Navigator in a heart beat if I could.
  4. The first time we did it, on Harmony (Oct time) it was the same as you. On Navigator in March it was different, felt odd not having the luggage on the same bus with us! Shame you only had 1 daytime route option, that sounds like our Harmony one, Navigator time we had 2 daytime loops and the nighttime option.
  5. We did this in March of this year. (Miami) As it's a Shore Excursion through Royal you have to disembark when they tell you too. We met in a lounge at x time, everyone got stickers to indicate which excursion they were on, then we got taken off the ship. Luggage is put onto a luggage cart and is taken to a storage facility in Bayside Market, you will get on a bus which also takes you to Bayside Market. From here you can choose which loop on the HOHO bus you want to do, we did both loops and still had time to go around the market. You can collect your luggage at any time from the storage, really easy to find just keep your receipts.
  6. Hopefully nobody was hurt on the carnival ship, or on any ship. I feel kind of sorry for the Captain, what a disaster to have caused that damage! Was there bad winds or literally just Captain Error?
  7. Wow, that is shocking, I can't believe I've just read that. Sorry you had to experience this, I'm glad you got refunded but that doesn't make up for the behaviour of the man and you getting hurt. Did the man apologise to you after he kicked you?
  8. That's a shame about the weather and I'm really sorry to hear how your friend was treated at the waterpark! We were on Navigator for 9 nights in March (the first sailing after the amp) and had the best time. The internet worked well for me, it was a rough start but it got better, it definitely slowed down at peak times but for the most part it worked really well. As for the Bamboo Room it was always so quiet! I hope you get to experience Navigator again with some good weather and less stress, I'm desperate to get back on her, but sadly the 3/4 nights don't really work for us coming from the UK.
  9. I went on Navigator for the first time in March this year, I loved it! The ship is also newly amped, as is Mariner. So for a non-oasis class my choice would be those two.
  10. I think Brits would have Indy back at Southampton (I know I would, or equally happy with Liberty or any RCI ship) However, the prices need to drop before I go on a cruise out of Southampton with RCI! It's cheaper for us to fly to Miami, stay at a hotel, and do a Caribbean Cruise than it is to sail with RCI out of Southampton at the moment!
  11. I noticed this! Glad it's not just me as I thought what the bloody hell is going on. I was looking into a December cruise and a few days ago the prices were reasonable, then yesterday they'd gone up by a massive amount. I'm hoping this means a offer is brewing.... If not, I think I will have to jump ship to P&O as I can't justify the prices RCI are charging.
  12. We did Chankanaab a few years ago which was excellent. More recently we went to Dolphinaris also in Cozumel which again was fab, this also included paddle boarding and snorkelling if you wanted to do so. We booked all through RCI.
  13. Thanks. That would be interesting if Odyssey came over... I'd love to try the Quantum Class so will keep my eyes peeled in case of any good Southampton deals come up.
  14. I think you'll enjoy it just as much as the first time! With a ship that size there's bound to be something you missed or didn't get to do the first time round, or even just try again. I'd love to sail Harmony again and even Navigator, I got off Navigator in March and would get back on tomorrow if I could.
  15. I'd like to sail Anthem and give her a try, but the prices out of Southampton are a no no for me. It cost us less this year to fly to Miami and take a 9 night Navigator cruise. I think the problem is with P&O and all the other cruise lines there is competition, as someone else said P&O prices are very reasonable! My parents are sailing on their new ship Iona next year in a a balcony room and they've paid half of what you would a RCI cruise out of Southampton. For me RCI are my favourite cruise line and I love sailing out of Florida and doing the Caribbean cruise, however I did always want to sail Indy out of Southampton as she seems the perfect sized ship for the Med/ Canaries so hopefully she'll come back at some point. Is Navigator not sailing from the UK this year either?
