  1. Make sure you look at the lines before just heading to the priority line. I have seen, on multiple occasions, where the priority line is longer than the "regular" line. For whatever reason, some people choose to wait in a longer line because they are entitled to.
  2. We had the corner aft on Adventure last year. That cabin required 3 passengers to book it. At the time, the 3rd person was only about $50 for the week. We booked a TBD in the 3rd berth. We didn't want to risk getting moved to another cabin so at final payment we paid the cheap, 3rd person fare and just had a no show at check in. It was worth the extra few bucks to get that cabin and balcony.
  3. Thank you for this picture! It confirms what I was hoping the balcony would look like. I just double checked my reservation and our two cabins are on the port side, not starboard. That means we have 7708 & 7710. I know 7708 will be a mirror image of this one. But, as long as people are showing, does anyone have a picture of 7710 or 7410 so we can see what the other balcony will be like?
  4. 7408 is one of the ones we have booked. We love the aft balconies because of their size. We have three sea days on this cruise so I'm sure we'll be spending a lot of time on our balconies.
  5. I was talking with my TA yesterday and she told me that RCI has increased the TA commission by 1% for any cruises they sell for October and November of 2020. I realize the increase is not much but it seems RCI hopes to be cruising by October.
  6. On Adventure there was the deck you are talking about but there was also some structural steel. As you said, you cannot look straight down to the water but other than that, the views were great. This is what we saw from our balcony on Adventure. I'm assuming the view from Liberty is similar.
  7. We booked aft cabins on deck 8 on Jewel, sailing out of Galveston, for our cruise next year. Yesterday we were told that Jewel will not be sailing out of Galveston next year and our ship has been changed to Liberty. Working with our TA I was able to get aft cabins on deck 7 on Liberty for the same price we paid on Jewel. The deck plans for Liberty say the cabins have obstructed views. We have cruised in aft cabins on Adventure, which also has obstructed views, and had no problem with the "obstruction". I know Voyager class and Freedom class ships are similar in design. Is the "obstructed" view on Liberty any worse than on Adventure?
  8. I used to have friends that owned a house on St. John 40+ years ago. When I would visit them, we'd dive for lobsters 3 or 4 times during the time I was there. We'd catch them, bring them back to the house, cook them and eat them. Those were the best lobsters I've ever eaten. I don't know if it was because "I caught them" or the fact that they were so fresh but they were the best.
  9. And when they're fresh from the waters of Maine, they taste much better than what you get on the ship.
  10. My wife and I have been to just about every island in the Caribbean that a cruise ship stops at. A few years ago a business trip took me to New Orleans, I had never been there. After I got home I told my wife we needed to go back and spend more time seeing the sights. It was then that we realized that the United States has so much to offer and we've never visited "our own back yard". We decided we needed to start vacationing in our country. For the last several years we have taken our annual cruise in the spring and then later in the year we spend a week or two visiting other parts of the U.S. i.e. Alaska, the Colorado Rockies, the New England coast, the National Parks in Utah, the Great Smokie Mountains..... We've only begun to see it all but we have thoroughly enjoyed seeing some of the beauty this country of ours has to offer.
  11. I'm not sure I've ever had to look for it on the web site. We book through a TA and the dining time is always listed on our invoice.
  12. I was on the one and only cruise also. I think the tiered seating has been replaced with additional seating for the Lime and the Coconut Bar.
  13. Up until two years ago I wore a tuxedo and my wife wore a gown on formal nights. The attire in the MDR has become more and more relaxed the last couple of years. We do not, and will not, dress like some of the slobs we have seen in there on Formal night, but we no longer bring formal attire. Luggage fees on the airlines played a role in this also. Bringing formal attire requires us to bring another piece of luggage and we don't want to have to the pay the fee for that extra piece.
  14. Royal not enforcing one of their own policies?? This is the first I've heard of such a thing. 😁
  15. We have never stayed in an aft cabin on deck 10 so I won't comment on the noise. We HAVE stayed in aft cabins on deck 9 and did not hear the noise while inside our cabin. We could hear it a little if we were on our balcony.
