  1. I’m looking into cruise insurance and need some advice. I called and got quotes today from a website recommended here. One quote lists medical coverage as being secondary and so we’d file with our insurance first and then the cruise insurance (medical covered up to 75,000). The second quote would have the cruise insurance as our primary insurance and we don’t use our regular medical coverage from what I understand. On that plan medical expenses are capped at $35,000. Am I correct to assume that it’s best to go with the coverage where we’d use our regular insurance and then have cruise insurance be secondary? Very overwhelmed with all of this! Thank you for any insight.
  2. Makes sense. We would know well before then. Would my price then be adjusted to reflect that we only have 3? Kids sail free but we still pay taxes and fees on him.
  3. Ok thanks. That was my thinking too. If #4 doesn’t work out what happens if I cancel him?
  4. We are looking at a cruise for December and almost ready to book. My brother and family are considering going but they aren’t sure yet. We would book one of their kids in our room if they go. Can I book the 3 of us now and then add a child later? Or is it best to just book a 4th person and sort it out later? What sort of penalty do I get if I drop person #4? We just are unsure as how is best to go about this. They have the kids sale free promo right now and our sailing qualifies. Thanks so much!
  5. We were onboard Oasis last week. I’m fairly certain the sign in photo area said $299 for all digital photos on a USB. We purchased it before the cruise for $249
  6. Thank you for this information. Very helpful! I believe we are in port five hours. Just doesn’t seem like much time. Our plan is El Morro and then wander around town a bit and then the other fort if time/ energy permits. Traveling with four kids ages 3, 5, 6 and 7 so will see if they can hang for fort two 😊
  7. Great live review so far! My family is hopping onto Oasis this morning so I’ll tune back in once we are home. I’m interested to read about the President’s cruise. Enjoy your cruises and thanks for taking us along!
  8. Perfect thanks so much! This at least gives us an idea of what to expect to pay. I guess we will see how we feel the day of and go from there. I saw some pictures of a walk that takes you along the coast and it looks beautiful but hot! We are excited to explore a new area. Just wish we were in port longer
  9. Phew!! I was so worried after reading her post on the roll call
  10. we are traveling on Oasis next week and it’s our first time in San Juan. Reading how beautiful the views and such are from El Morro. I read the trolley is free but sometimes a challenge to get a seat. Was thinking of checking on a taxi to El Morro (group of 10) and then walking back to the ship so we can see the city. Anyone know the cost of taxi to El Morro? I know we can also walk both ways but given heat and that 4 of 10 are kids a taxi one way might be best. I really don’t like taking taxis but it might be best idea.
  11. Wow! What a fantastic trip report. I appreciate you taking the time to write it all up. We are cruising Oasis on Sunday with our 5.5 year old. Exactly the same itinerary as you. We too haven’t cruised on Royal for years- our last was Allure in 2011. Our last cruise was Disney 5 years ago. Son was 7 months then and was with us but so tiny. Thanks for all the fantastic information and tips. Your reminder for downtime is important and something I hadn’t thought much about. We are also in a balcony port side so was a little sad to read it’s not the side they dock on at any port. We are cruising with family and have four cabins total. My son is SO excited for this trip and I just can’t wait to see what he thinks of it all. Thanks again!
  12. Thanks everyone! It’s very interesting to me how different everybody does packing. I know cruising has changed a lot over the years as far as dining room attire. It kinda makes me sad that it’s not as fancy but I guess it is what it is. Honestly wearing whatever in the dining room would be so much easier but we enjoy the aspect of getting dressed up and enjoying the beautiful atmosphere. Regardless of what I decide to pack I know we are going to have a wonderful cruise! It’s been 5 long years since we last cruised and are just excited to be back on the ship and to introduce our son to this way of traveling.
  13. So smart to do skirts and interchangeable tops. We leave a week from tomorrow and I don’t have time for a new wardrobe so dresses it is. I’m going to look over everything tomorrow and see how I can reuse shirts for my husband at least.
  14. I do realize things have changed over the years. Like I say, dressing up is something we enjoy doing at dinner when cruising. I know there will be people there in all different types of attire and I’m fine with that. Call me old fashioned I guess :D My son is five years old and is very excited for dinner in the fancy restaurant
  15. ok so I’m the first to admit I over pack for every trip I take :D Trying to get our clothes together for the main dining room and I’m really struggling. We very much enjoy dressing up each night and plan to do so this cruise as well. Of course this cruise we’ve added a child into the mix. Curious for those that dress up nightly do you take one outfit per dinner or do you rewear an outfit or two? We have always done one per night and I have rear but gosh that’s a lot of clothes for three people/ seven nights. We drive to port so airline fees aren’t a problem/ consideration
