  1. Was there a steam room though in the bathroom of the fitness center?
  2. Both of them say yes, but many people say no on Quantum. I've also seen on a website with layouts and descriptions where people say that the gym has them, but then people on youtube said the fitness center has no locker room with no steam room. On RC's website it just says that amenities vary on ship so I emailed them but I don't expect to hear back anytime soon.
  3. I'm reading different things about this online. Does the fitness center have bathrooms that have a steam room available, or is it steam room free where you have to buy a spa pass if you want to use it in the spa? On many cruises that I have been on, there are 2 sets of steam rooms. The fancy ones in the spa, and the complimentary ones in the gym. Employees don't advertise that there are complimentary steam rooms and saunas because they want you to buy a thermal spa package. Has anyone here actually used the fitness center bathroom who can confirm this?
  4. I saw on RC's website that you can now bring up to 12 cans of soda with you on emarkment day, however can you bring them onboard on a port day?
  5. Yeah when I first heard about Icy Strait I had a feeling it was another tourist trap created by the cruiselines. That said I have heard that it's a good place to just go whale watching from land without paying for a tour. I'm just up for somewhere that isn't Ketchikan or Skagway.
  6. From a RC blog, it looks like they have 3 studio interiors and 12 studio ocean view cabins. Info may be out of date though (it's from 2016). You had me curious so I looked on RC's website. In the plan for 4/4/21-4/24/22 it looks like they will have 15 studio oceanviews on deck 4,
  7. So any Alaskan cruise would have worked as long as it was 7 days and on RC?
  8. Yeah lol, I don't plan trips way in advance for that reason. I need more instant gratification :)
  9. How is that different though? Aside from Juneau, Victoria, and Dawes, the rest is the same. I'm just confused with the language. I never thought they would let me switch considering Ovation had plenty of dates next summer with the same room category.
  10. Me too. I didn't think they would let me switch ships since the itinerary is different, but they did. Looking at old emails when I booked last I had an oceanview guarantee on NCL which cost $753 including insurance, and then on an interior guarantee on NCL it cost $527 (no insurance). When I saw the price with a balcony, I finally decided to get one :)
  11. Just wanted to share this because I know that there aren't that many studio balconies with unobstructed views. I booked my July 31 sailing on Ovation less than 2 weeks ago after using a website to look up prices which I cannot mention on here. I got the 7 night cruise for $924 including my choice of $55 OBC or insurance (I ended up getting both because they made an error in the listing). Naturally the cruise was canceled. I looked at the dates for next year and with the exception of one sailing, all the cabins left had obstructed views in their studio balconies. I did see an itinerary that I liked more than the one on Ovation on the Quantum (I've been on 2 Alaskan cruises before on NCL which were the same 7 night northern one out of Vancouver). That sailing had most of their unobstructed views left. I asked the agency I booked with if they could lift and switch me to that ship and they said that would probably be okay but that they had to check with RC because it was a different itinerary. I heard back and they were successful in getting me on that ship using the pricelock feature of the lift and shift promo. This was my first experience using an agency (as well as with RC) and they left me with a good impression. Just wanted to share that it doesn't hurt to ask. I'm very excited because I've never been to Sitka or Icy Strait which are on this itinerary. This also is the first time where I have a cruise booked this far in advance (with the last 2 cruises, I booked within 2 weeks of the sail date because that's how I was able to get a much more reasonable rate as a solo cruiser). I have over a year to be excited instead of 2 weeks :)
  12. It looks like they have already closed the Alaskan July bookings on their website because it says to pick another date. My cruise was for July 31 =/ I would lift and switch it but I was in a studio room with a non obstructed balcony and those are already gone. I guess it was worth the risk even though I did give RC an interest free loan.
  13. I think you meant to quote someone else.
