  1. We were offered the behind the scenes brunch at a much discounted price. I don't recall exactly how much as we did not take the offer.
  2. Not sure if this information will be helpful: We used one of our free (Diamond Perk) Internet days on the last day of the cruise. We were able to print our boarding passes in the Diamond Lounge.
  3. Thank you for providing a current update. We are headed on a B2B on Rhapsody in December. Our first time on this particular ship. Can't wait! Can you tell me what some of the entertainment has been?
  4. It is my understanding that Rhapsody is going to have a 2 week refurbishment when it returns to the U.S. in a few weeks. Can anyone confirm this?
  5. Just read this on Matt Hochberg's page. FYI Known as DINE • DRINK • DISCOVER program, Royal Caribbean will remove the program on all sailings departing on and after January 1, 2020. Guests booked prior to September 18, 2019 in neighborhood balconies sailing from January 1, 2020 through April 2021 will receive a $50 non-refundable Onboard Credit per stateroom, as a consolation for the policy change. Anyone booked on sailings from January 1, 2020 and after, following the announcement, will not qualify. If you are wondering why Royal Caribbean made the decision to remove the perks, here is what they said, "Royal Caribbean is always looking for new ways to exceed your clients’ expectations. We’ve been conducting extensive research to better anticipate what matters most to them and will continue to offer countless ways for your clients to make unforgettable memories onboard. We are excited to share some game-changing updates to our inventory and amenity offerings in the coming months."
  6. A couple of years ago we did a B2B on Jewel. They lead all of us off the ship and then we were lead right back on with our new cards. We were then invited to the MDR for a nice luncheon with a special menu. We are also doing Back2Back on Rhapsody in December. I thought all of the ships did the same thing. I guess we'll find out in December 🙂
  7. If the 10 drink punch card is for sale on week 1 of our back2back and we don't use it all, will we be able to use it during week 2 of the back2 back?
  8. I've read that Royal will possibly move formal night to coincide with the holiday for dining. For those that have cruised over the holidays, are formal nights typically on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day and New Years Eve or New Years Day? I also understand there may be special menus served for dinner. Again, would that take place on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day, also New Years Eve or New Years Day? Thanks in advance for any input.
  9. Came here to ask about Coral Breeze. Looking to go December 31. I've sent 2 messages through their website in the last week. Haven't heard back. Has anyone else tried to contact them through their website?
  10. Impatiently waiting for 2021 itineraries to be released.
  11. March 2015 - Our adult kids first cruise and we couldn't dock in Costa Maya due to winds. Kind of a bummer, but things happen.
  12. Hello, We are considering booking this excursion. Did you do the VIP or regular booking? If you did the regular booking, did you have any trouble finding a chair? Any additional information about this excursion we should know about? Thank you for your time.
  13. Does anyone know approximately when the last tender would be? Our ship departs at 3:30. Thank you.
  14. So glad you finally made it home safely. If I had known you were in Detroit, I could have come and picked you guys up and at least taken you to lunch or dinner or something! I have to agree with you about Hooked. It was not our favorite. Kind of disappointing and overpriced. I also have to agree with your regarding Symphony as a whole. We liked it, but didn't love it. We did Harmony the same exact week 2 years earlier and absolutely loved it. It was why we booked Symphony. Can't really put my finger on it, but we liked Harmony much better. Seemed much less crowded and just sort of flowed better. Hope we cruise together again in the future.
  15. Yes, you can choose Chops as one of your nights, two of your nights or all three nights if you want.
