  1. I agree with you. The majority will probably not care. I am in the minority (I believe) as I love the smaller ship classes.
  2. I have heard it mentioned recently as well, but this is the first time I have heard someone give a time frame, other than sometime this year. Of course very soon can mean different things to different people, but it seemed sooner rather than later. 🤷‍♂️
  3. I posted this in another forum section (Austrailia/New Zealand) to an existing thread, but I figured I would mention it here as well. On Grandeur now and the captain, while speaking at the loyalty event also did confirm that we should be hearing about a whole new class very soon. He did mention that it is not as large as the current classes being built and said it would be a little larger than the Grandeur (Vision Class). For what it is worth, he also mentioned dry dock for Enchantment and Vision in the coming year or so, so those ships should be staying in service for at least a couple more years (as of right now.)

  5. I create a commemorative framed and matted collage so to speak of every cruise we take. I include the embarkation photo as well as a generated map route and the SeaPass cards of everyone. That way I don't have to use my ink and printer paper for the prints. I also like having a digital copy so I can include them in my photo library. Plus my wife creates a photo album for each cruise as well.
  6. 1. What was the up charge for the unlimited and is it based on what you originally paid for the 100 photos? For example I paid $125 for the package on Anthem. 2. Also there was no option to get a mix of print versus digital, it is either one or the other?
  7. Deployment typically happens in Oct/Nov/Dec of each year. For reference, here was the schedule for 2024-2025 (April). RCCL 2024-2025 Deployment Opening Schedule
  8. Do not all DL give coffee cards out when the machine is broken? We were on Liberty recently and the machine was broken and the Diamond Concierge gave out cards to get coffee/espresso/cappuccino elsewhere. This was the first time we experienced a broken machine in the DL.
  9. Not sure about Adventure. But in Chops on some other ships, the entire row by the windows are 2 tops. So I would imagine there may be a possibility, if Adventure has that configuration, you could accommodate a very large party by them just moving multiple tables together. As long as they aren't booked close to capacity. Make Chop's your first stop as soon as you embark and speak to the host/hostess there and see if they can accommodate your request for however many people you have.
  10. There are partitions between every staterooms balcony. Some can be opened up if you have both of the staterooms to make one large balcony. Just ask your stateroom attendant.
  11. I would agree with this. Anytime I would choose a stateroom guarantee, I would always get a connecting stateroom. After about four-five times, I changed my booking process and made sure I would never get a connecting stateroom again. I may have just had really bad luck, but you hear everything. Fighting, kids yelling, above normal conversational volume, bathroom/closet/balcony doors slamming, TV, and even adult fun time (which may be a plus depending if you are into that sort of thing 😉). If those things bother you, just bring some noise cancelling earbuds or some earplugs just in case. Unfortunately you never know who your neighbor will be, so be prepared just in case.
  12. Do you use a travel agent? Maybe your email address incorrectly got put on another's booking. 🤷‍♂️ I am pretty sure that RC checks that the guest name/DOB match the C&A number before the booking is confirmed, otherwise it throws up an error. So that is probably not a possibility.
  13. Some of these operators only have specific allotments, then once that allotment is gone, they have no more unless they can get more from the supplier (resort). There may also be certain limitations they have with the supplier as they can only offer X resort on X days during X month or X days out, etc. Like the OP said, if one doesn't have it available, check around, or at least check back occasionally as the days get closer to your port day to see if there is availability.
  14. To answer your question, anything more than zero would be fair. I am not implying that they should give some large amount back in a form of a refund like some here think I am suggesting. I would have be fine with a $25 per stateroom OBC, which costs RC next to nothing to give out. The issue that I have is that they keep doing this stuff because they can. Customer service and goodwill goes a long ways, and any gesture of it would be acceptable to me.
  15. Not even the point of my post. Yeah I forgot the total that I listed was passengers and crew, but yes, you are correct. @Biker19
  16. Right, but nor is it the other 4250 passengers.
  17. Just curious. Will they let someone use the Star Class band on a future cruise even if they are not in Star Class? Sounds like a way to get some of the perks of suite class without having a suite. I am referring to some of the benefits that don’t require scanning the band, for example preferred seating. Not advocating for it, nor would I ever do it, but just curious.
  18. Thank you @John Bull, I appreciate all the info you provided.
  19. Does anyone know which room to book for the City Cruise Terminal (Royal Caribbean) view? There are City, Premium City, Harbour, and Premium River view rooms. Looking at the hotel it looks like there is only two sides, so I am not sure which one to book (guessing not city). I booked the Premium River view since there were less of these rooms still left to book, but I will change it in case Harbour View is the way to go. If the Harbour View and Premium River View rooms are the same side/view, what if any are the differences, besides room size. I noticed the photos for each seemed to be the same and there was no real description for the differences. Thank you in advance.
  20. This especially holds true for those limited sailings. We booked a Panama Canal cruise on Radiance in a Grand Suite next October (2024). We booked the morning the deployment was out and got the cruise for just under $6000 for two of us. All suites were sold out within 2 weeks of deployment and now a balcony stateroom is substantially ($2000+) more than what we paid.
  21. To confirm what Biker19 stated. This was our JS on Mariner: Two US and one European.
  22. Not entirely accurate 😉, suites with Star Class do include complimentary laundry.
