  1. I realize we are all not cruising right now and many things may change once cruising resumes, but I have a question regarding the age at which kids can self checkout of Adventure Ocean on the Oasis (based on pre-COVID cruising). Our entire family is cruising on the Oasis in October of 2021. We are curious at what age kids can check themselves out of the new concept AO (with parental approval of course) on the Oasis? Our two granddaughters will be 6 and 9 at the time that we cruise. Our daughter wants to understand if there are changes to the self checkout ages are in the newly designed AO as compared to the previous AO. We are aware of the fact that Adventure Ocean on the Oasis is different than other ships due to the Amplification. We are also aware that on the other ships Aquanauts, Explorers and Voyagers ranged from ages 6 -11 and that with the new AO 12 year olds are included. Does this change introduce a change to the self checkout policy? Thanks in Advance and Can't wait to cruise again! -Rebecca
  2. Good Afternoon! We are a group of 10 that will be doing the northbound Radiance of the Seas cruise from Vancouver to Seward on 05/29/20. We are looking at booking a private tour for our group in Ketchikan. We have done ship sponsored excursions in the past, but prefer the personalization and service we get from private tours. That being said, I am struggling to find private tour companies in Ketchikan. Anyone here have any recommendations for ones they have used that have provided great experiences and great customer service? Thank you, -Rebecca
  3. Hey Everyone! We are headed to Alaska in July/August on the Ovation of the Seas. One of our stops is Skagway. I was looking at tour options while we are there and saw the Gold Panning, Sled Dogs & Exclusive Scenic Railway tour offered through the cruiseline. We prefer to book private tours (we tend to like the more personal approach), but we cannot seem to find a tour comparable to this to book on our own. Does anyone have any experience with this? We are a group of 8 - 12 9 (depending on how many want to do the tour), so we could easily make up our own group! Thanks a ton!
  4. Check your cruise planners people! We are cruising on the 04/25/19 IOS cruise to Cozumel and he 07/26/19 Ovation Cruise to Alaska. We just saved $ on our Cruise Planner purchases. Saw that Royal was hosting a sale. For Indy, we had already booked the Ultimate Dining Package (at $106pp) and the Behind the Scenes Tour (at $97pp). Went out to the website, and UDP was $95pp and BTS was $89pp. Cancelled and rebooked. That's $38 back in our pockets! Also checked the Behind the Scenes on the Ovation (which we hadn't previously booked), in July and it had dropped form $119pp to $109pp. So... we booked it. No additional discounts on the drink packages for either cruise beyond what we got on Black Friday, but it never hurts to check! Happy Savings (I hope) Y'all
