  1. We had a terrific one on Liberty OTS a few years ago but last spring on Indy it was something like improv piano and we left within the first song, we just wanted a true piano bar so I feel it can be hit or miss - I know that is true on any line as the actual performer can make or break it but I also liked that they had a closed venue for the piano bar on Carnival.
  2. The only thing I really felt Carnival has over Royal is the comedians and piano bar on ships that have them - true piano bar venue that was a great nightly venue as well as different comedy acts most nights with some very funny comedians. I do feel the newer Royal ships with the comedy club are a closer comparison but it's one comic and not always an easy ticket to get.
  3. Yep, had this happen recently on my birthday/anniversary. It worked out well for me since they didn't have what I had reserved I was comped a lesser room (I had booked a suite). Since it had been a last minute getaway I was happier with free lol! But I've often had issue changing rooms when a hotel is at capacity or expecting to be at some point at my stay and I've got the status I usually have pull.
  4. We took my youngest and his girlfriend in March for their senior year of college spring break escape on the 5 night Indy cruise and yes there were a ton of spring breakers but they didn't bother us. Now the lines at the bars were longer but bartenders usually jumped us in line because we weren't deliberating over which drink to order 🙂 We also had a veterinary conference on board and that was no impact either. We had a great cruise! But anyone cruising in March should expect spring breakers of all ages!
  5. We love cruising on Thanksgiving but stopped as finding a good dog sitter that week and costs for flights home the weekend after just priced us out being worth it. I never looked for the parade or traditional meals since what I loved was getting away from the usual traditions though I appreciated they were there for those that wanted them!
  6. I get that but I'm pretty sure they can reassign at check-in and update the records. Now I can't guarantee they won't have to make a couple trips to guest services to correct it but that can happen with any passenger who doesn't even change anything 🙂
  7. Yes they have them - sailed her in March - she's now my favorite in that class and that is still my favorite class.
  8. I've traveled with mine a few doors down and at the time they were younger than 19/20 and no one every questioned it - I remember having to call to book though since I was booking 2 cabins at once and this was years ago. They even ended up in a different muster station but no one ever questioned the booking. If you do end up having to split who is where, you can switch it back at check-in without issue too.
  9. Great review, thank you! Navigator was the first Royal ship I sailed and I was excited by what they did to upgrade her!
  10. And as long as any lower price isn't tied to a special sale only applicable to new bookings!
  11. Yes, provided the lower price is for your same cabin category. It's worth checking regularly! Or you can also upgrade if a category above you drops in price to what you paid, etc 🙂
  12. Ha, yes, I did this with my ex - and when worthy, bumped up my husband 🙂 Granted, I'm a lowly Emerald, but it's better than nothing! 🙂
  13. LOL Or it's like most of us, we stalk this site for updates, excitement before we cruise and afterwards in the letdown of it all being over it takes a while to want to rush back to the site 🙂
  14. RCCL should have a "Winner" wall somewhere on the ship where they post a couple event photos and the top 3 teams/entrants from that event - and limit it to just a handful of events, but maybe have a "highest points" board for trivia, etc, but I think it may take some extra work to man, but I expect guests would thrilled to "make the wall" and then they can take photos of themselves next to their picture/name/whatever! Marginal costs, could be consistent across ships, etc. Or just stick to the medals, those are fun while on board and easily identifiable/conversation starters on board and can be hung or flung after the cruise!
