  1. Yes- that’s exactly what I mean- thank you. I was worried that the interior cabins opened up towards the other interior cabins instead of the balcony cabins.
  2. Could someone help me out with which way the doors open in the bank of interior room at the front of the ship on Harmony on decks 7 through 11? Specifically, do any rooms open towards the balcony rooms on each side of the ship? We usually book ourselves a balcony cabin and the kids an interior right across the hall, so want to make sure the interior cabin doors open up towards our door and the kids don't have to go down the hall and around the corner to get to our room. Thanks in advance!
  3. Funny you should mention price- it is actually cheaper to book Oasis and we get a better cabin for the kids- Central Park balcony on Oasis vs interior on Freedom. Thanks for the feedback- think we book Oasis this time!
  4. Booking our next cruise for spring break 2022. Looking at Oasis vs. Freedom. We just got off of Symphony in February. Is Oasis basically the same ship? How much smaller is Freedom (or how much smaller does it feel?) My family loved Symphony! We have four kids who will be 7-14 at the time. Is Freedom a "disappointment" after Oasis class ships?
  5. We have 4 kids- the youngest will be 7 when we are in the DR. The kid really want to do Damajagua Falls. Are there tour companies that will take a 7 year old? I saw that the website said "over 8" and "under 7" but that doesn't cover 7 or 8 year olds... Any help would be much appreciated. TIA
  6. We had to wait until the day that my son turned 6 months on every cruise line that I found so we postponed our trip a couple of weeks.
  7. No deal for ANYTHING on my cruise that sails in February 2020. I actually got better prices on some stuff before today. Another "fake sale". Pretty disappointing!
  8. Just a question for some piece of mind or a plan B. Does anyone know if we can get laundry done in an “emergency”? We have 4 kids and last time we sailed (on Carnival so they had laundry facilities) my son got a stomach bug so we had to do several loads of laundry. TIA
  9. When they do open how is it listed? Under dining I assume- does it specifically say MTD?
  10. We have MTD but are on the waitlist for early dining. Cruise planner has all of the specialty restaurants open for reservations but I can’t see any way to book our MTD reservations. Am I missing something? Does the main dining room show up for reservations or is it listed under some other name? Or is there a way to check online whether we were moved to early dining? TIA
  11. Just a couple of random questions that I couldn't find the answers to on these boards. We will be on the Symphony sailing out of Miami if that matters. 1. What is the earliest and latest we can get off the ship? We will be able to take our own luggage off with us. What time do they stop serving breakfast in the "main" dining room that day? 2. We have a Central Park balcony that comes with a "free" lunch for two. Do we make that reservation when we get on the ship or can we do it ahead of time through the cruise planner? 3. Is 2 hours enough time between the start of dinner and the start of a show? Or is more time recommended? 4. Is there a limit to the number of alcoholic drinks per day with the ultimate drink package? We just sailed on Carnival and they limited it to a certain number in a 24-hour period. TIA
  12. I just repriced one of our two cabins with the "Kids Sail Free" but had to do a non-refundable rate to save any money. Even with 2 kids sailing free in a cabin with 4 people the price of the refundable rate went up by $15. But saved almost $400 changing to non-refundable. Also, the price has dropped 2 more times since the sale started so I've called RCCL 3 times to change it... guess this is my new full-time job!! LOL
  13. Our cruise doesn't sail until February 2020. Does RCCL run periodic sales on beverage packages, activities, etc. like I see that they are doing right now (but doesn't apply to my cruise yet). We just sailed with Carnival and they had a Black Friday sale where I got a great deal on a spa treatment. Does RCCL do something similar for Black Friday or other times of the year? Just don't want to miss out :)
  14. My kids are getting super excited about our cruise on Symphony. Could someone tell me what activities cost extra onboard? I’m not worried about extra food charges- we can avoid those- but don’t want to be the kids super excited about something that costs and extra arm/leg (we have 4 kids). TIA
  15. Wondering if this has happened/is happening to others. We booked the Symphony for February 2020 way back in October of 2018. At that time, they said only My Time dining was available and waiting list "wasn't open yet" for the early seating in the main dining room (which is what we want). So, we booked that and I called back yesterday and they told me the same thing. This is the weirdest thing I've ever heard! The waiting list isn't open yet? And the early dining is already full almost a year and a half early? Can anyone shed some light on this? If we do get "stuck" with My Time dining, is it easy to make reservations before we get on the ship for every night of the cruise or is it a walk up only (like Carnival)? We haven't sailed with RCCL since before My Time dining was a thing. TIA
