  1. Kind of confused...why would it be cheaper with the drink package and why is it listed like that? Even $12 for the drink it’s covered in the package. Now drinks served in special souvenir glasses are extra.
  2. Anything perishable should not be brought back to your cabin. They are not true refrigerators with the proper safe temperature. They are coolers and keep contents at temperatures in the upper 40’s/ 50’s. Food can spoil at those temps and cause problems.
  3. Take all your friends and family on the boardwalk Carousal. Everyone on an animal, set it up with the crew operator. Say your special words then ride. Someone can be taking photos or video of you. Then make your way up to your loft for drinks and appetizers. I just think out of the box!
  4. Called Royal, told me to have my TA contact them to put me back into 8D gty list or move me to another cabin, 6D or 8D. Nice that they waited 11 months to assign me my cabin. TA called all OVB sold out so I’m stuck with what they consider an upgrade. Did a Royal up for Suites but most likely won’t be accepted. Lesson learned...never do a Guarantee again!
  5. I booked a 8D oceanview balcony guarantee. Just got my stateroom and it is a 6D oceanview balcony Deck 14. Is this a lower category? I booked this knowing 8D is on decks 6, 7 or 8. Which I wanted. I did not want a high deck, plus it is under basketball court. This is the first time booking a guarantee.
  6. There is a $10 pp charge for your food, then yes you can get your milkshake with the DBP. Cheers!
  7. I have cruised out of Tampa many times. My cruise a few months ago it was so windy we could not leave until after midnight as it is a small channel and need to stay in the middle, sides are too shallow. Winter cruising with our early morning dense fog has created two of my cruises to be out at sea until 9am, then the 2 hours from the bridge to docking. Everyone that had flights before 1pm missed them.
  8. So I cruise a lot on RCCL, just checking to see whats new on my cruise planner for my December Symphony cruise. I tend to go all out, since it is a vacation. I booked the Key, Specialty dining, adult beverage pkg, etc. Back to the reason for this post. Why is Cococay cabanas so expensive. This is $500 more than my OV balcony cabin cost. I would take that money and donate with a chance of winning to the Casino. I realize they have to pay for this 200 million dollar upgrade somehow, just not getting it from me.
  9. I had a CP balcony deck 11 and found it to be hot, no air movement on the balcony. Same with the BW balcony. Now I only book OV balconies. Cheers!
  10. I took a regular 2 prong extension cord with me on both my RCCL cruises this year. Maybe it was because I coiled it and placed it inside my empty Tervis insulated cup.
  11. I am sailing Symphony December 2019 Booked a year in advance December 2018 Key was available when I booked for $19 so I purchased it along with Deluxe drink pkg. Royal site frequently has major glitches. Keep checking daily.
  12. Google Guido’s Cozumel for photos and menu. Menu prices can be converted to US $ on currency converter site.
  13. I have stayed in Cozumel for weeks at a time, the absolutely best restaurant is Guido’s. Italian cuisine, best lasagna ever, along with fantastic gourmet pizzas. Reasonably priced with indoor dining or a beautiful backyard patio. 8 blocks from downtown cruise ship pier. Open 11am-11pm I will be dining there soon on my Symphony cruise. Pancho’s Backyard is just 2 blocks further, good food also on a beautiful courtyard outdoor patio. Cheers!
  14. The ships position @ 11:44 am is due east of West Palm beach. Traveling @ 22.7 kn. Its unfortunate for those who need to be off, and those impacted in the delay of their upcoming cruise. I’m just happy that being retired, any delays are ok.
