  1. I agree, this is unfortunate for the OP but you should always check travel docs (plane, train, cruise, etc) as soon as you get them for accuracy and any information you may not expect as you typically always have 24 hours to cancel without penalty.
  2. Individual shelf stable chocolate soymilk landed us there one cruise - they were certain there was something more nefarious in the bag when I showed them the only liquid was soy milk. Eventually they let me go with all contents. I appreciated the experience though as it was amusing to see what others had attempted to bring on. My daughter though was not amused, it was her bag I was retrieving πŸ™‚
  3. Yes, done it many times, even when my kids were younger. Booked it that way (by calling in) or swapped rooms/occupants at check-in. You can also get a spare "key" just to open the room too if you want to ensure you can access their room!
  4. Still bummed we didn't have a 2020 cruise on the books yet to try and snag this deal too πŸ™‚ It really seems too that while a good # who booked the deal recognized the deal because it was so cheap, I expect also a good number would never have booked the DBP at "prevailing rates" and won't really cost Royal any money. Now I'm just hopeful the "prevailing rates" still go as low as the $4Xs and I'll try to still find that a bargain when I book πŸ™‚
  5. Great review and love the photos - especially those around the ship with your daughter in her pointes! πŸ™‚ I would have come to see the show too, thank you so much for sharing!
  6. Awesome, so glad you had a great time, and thank you for the pictures, that balcony looks terrific!
  7. Bingo used to be a highlight of a trip, won a few times which kept me coming back, but now these machines make me not want to anymore. I spent more overall on Bingo doing it multiple times when it was cheaper to play - this past cruise I played once to do it and realized I didn't have the same enjoyment anymore at the cost outlay!
  8. Agreed! Heck I had a hard enough time with TSA/Customs when I had a passport that had been updated but only referenced the new name in a one printed line on the back page so every time I was questioned why the names didn't match and when I told them to check the last page they thought somehow I was duping them. I was so happy when I just renewed my passport to the correct name!
  9. LOL We have ours on the back of a card in our luggage tag that says "See Back" - one time we were vacationing in Grand Cayman and the porter brought us to check in and introduced us as "Mr & Mrs SeeBack" so we now always joke when we travel that the See Backs are headed out πŸ™‚
  10. I'd say 2 rooms and wouldn't worry at all about connecting for an 18 & 20 year old, or even having them right next door. The 2nd bathroom is key, and the more comfortable sleeping happens for the first 2 in a room!
  11. I'm definitely willing to try this next cruise for all those reasons!
  12. Interesting, we've always brought a small fan on Royal and never had it taken, but I'll be alert to that possibility. Both a battery operated one and a plug in one, and I need it for sure!
  13. Even prior to any vegan menus being on board we have found they are very happy to help when we've met with the head waiter and explained. We still talk about one cruise on Liberty 5 years ago where we were spoiled every night with chef creations. We still find it hit or miss and I do bring supplies to help if options are really limited but we've never been starving and many times been stuffed! πŸ™‚
  14. Choose the sailing you prefer, both ports have pluses/minuses but I've found both easy to navigate and have driven to both.
