  1. We have our own snorkel masks but wondered if we could rent fins to wear while snorkeling the reef at Tabyana Beach. If so, do you know where and how much? Thank you for any info.
  2. Thanks for the explanations. We’ll adapt to squeezing between the two beds.
  3. Looking at the diagram for balcony staterooms (ocean view) I am wondering how they separate the beds if needed. There doesn’t seems as though there’s enough width to do that. Experience? Photograph? thanks for any information.
  4. We went to Falmouth Beach Club through a private excursion company. It was a nice beach, relatively uncrowded and as I remember not really expensive. There were only a couple of locals walking the beach trying to sell you things.
  5. I don’t doubt your response however our experience (and RC’s wording) states a 7 night cruise or $2400 toward a cruise. The 7 night Caribbean cruise we chose in the most expensive balcony cabin was accepted. Of course we paid for taxes and port fees. Perhaps we were fortunate for this to work to our advantage. As someone posted already you can apply the free cruise to an existing reservation even if it’s next year. The free cruise must be booked/applied within 6 months.
  6. Wind chime . . . So cute. Can you give details of where you bought it and how much. Did you walk to the other pier, Not the RC pier and how long it took and was it safe to walk there? Thanks so much.
  7. Loved Random Wind. Crew was so attentive, tarzan swing was fun, food and beverages were excellent. Shade on the cat, slanted stairs to get on and off the cat, plenty of swim noodles, a paddle board and a kayak. Will do this again anytime we are in St Maarten.
  8. I’m sure seasoned cruisers will find this post a “duh” post but perhaps it will help others. this past Saturday the rains came and went at Port Everglades during boarding the Adventure. Many, many of us ended up with drenched suitcases that were on the racks waiting to be loaded on the ship. As it turned out even though our suitcase was extremely wet our clothing stayed dry because we always line our suitcases with plastic garbage bags cut to fit unlike most people I’ve talked to. It has taken 2 days for the suitcase to dry. Yes, Royal has helped those with wet clothing but if you can avoid that, why not. My suggestion is take the time to line your suitcase. You never know when a shower will appear and disrupt your cruise.
  9. From my experience this is what I have seen: Under the area CRUISE FARE where it lists the type of cruise, BOGO or what ever you booked under, it will NOT have NRD after it if it is refundable. In the area of PROMOTIONS APPLIED if there are terms under that and NRD isn’t listed there then it Is refundable. if you see NRD then it is not refundable.
  10. If the cabin is booked for 2 passengers and one doesn’t show, will I receive 7 or 14 points on a 7 night cruise?
  11. Is the sky pad on the Independence open? We are on the Independence in November and would like to try it. However we couldn’t find it on the reservations area of the website.
  12. Oops . . . I thought this was the cruise director. Sorry.
  13. Navigator . . . Cory (dont remember last name) is on about a month more.
