  1. Hi Andy0801, Welcome to CC (Cruise Critics) please feel free to ask many questions as you want. Itinerary and cabin should be one of your first consideration. Try to avoid itineraries that use tenders and book an accessible/ handicapped (HC) cabin.
  2. Interesting. I have just printed out our set sails passes for Explorer, leaving on 10-18. Diamond Plus is written in full on our passes.
  3. Welcome to CC (Cruise Critic). I would post your question on RCI's forum as well as here. https://boards.cruisecritic.co.uk/forum/51-royal-caribbean-international/. That way you will have a better chance of getting answers.
  4. What does age have to do with it? I would be annoyed by what happened.
  5. Interesting question. One that has various answers, depending on who you ask. Please feel free to start a tread based around your question (Who do you think the Captain is?) as this is a tread mainly about the food in the WJ
  6. Thank you for replying. Could you please give me an example of when a wheelchair user may need their dog, on a cruise, other than when the carer/companion is not around? I want to be educated about why a wheelchair user would need their dog on a cruise. I totally understand the reasons for a wheelchair user having a dog normally but on a cruise would they still need their dog when everyone has mobile phones theses days.
  7. I may be wrong but I feel a wheelchair user does not need to take their service dog on a cruise with them. ( Let the dog have it's own vacation whist it's owner is on a cruise) Most cruise lines insist that wheelchair users need to be self-sufficient if they are travelling on their own or to travel with a carer/companion if they are not. As most wheelchair users travel with a carer/companion they do not need their dog unless the carer/companion is only travelling with the wheelchair user to allow the wheelchair user to bypass the cruise line's self-sufficient policy.
  8. It's not just the officers. We were on the Explorer in June 2019 and saw the Captain eating in the WJ several times in the evening.
  9. For me it's not about the money it's about the views. The best views, for me, are where you can see both sides of the fjords at the same time and you can not do that from most cabins.
  10. What about the passengers who physically cannot disinfect their own hands (stroke sufferers). Do they get a free pass or do you expect a member of staff to disinfect their hands for them, possibly embarrassing the passenger?
  11. Which bacon are we talking about? I've seen very crispy but not greasy american bacon. I've also seen greasy english bacon.
  12. Shows the small waiting area. Like you we normally arrive at 11.30 and the seats are empty.
  13. The continental breakfast is very hit and miss. It either will not be there or the selection is not great. If you are a breakfast person, i.e. can not function without breakfast, do not rely on it.
