  1. We have done three transatlantics on Oasis class. Our last on Symphony there were 12 under 16 years old, that has been about what we find each time. The westbound TA'S are heavily loaded with Brits and Germans, European countries have a totally different view of taking kids out of school. This Memorial weekend we are taking our 14 year old granddaughter to a 3 day girls fastpitch softball tournament in Las Vegas. She will miss Friday at school for the sole reason that I will not drive from San Diego to Las Vegas on a Friday starting a holiday weekend. That would be a unheard of reason in Europe. Oasis class ships are awesome when they sail with 1500 fewer kids.
  2. You have not seen the extent of drinking in the Diamond lounge. And on the transatlantics the DL overflow is in the clubs. I can easily see a savings of $1400 over 14 nights per couple, as well as a $350 balcony cabin discount. We have been on Royal, Princess, NCL and Carnival. Even without the loyalty program our first choice now is RCL.
  3. That is what is going to happen during the Allure and Oasis dry-docks. Loved the two story DL. Our last cruise on Symphony the overflow for Suite guests was Dazzles every night, Diamonds used the DL, The Attic and Jazz on 4 every night for overflow, a few nights we still used our vouchers to avoid the crush. Found they only use top shelf liquor in the Wonderland bar but still honor the vouchers.
  4. Late post but here goes. Our go to cabin is first hump or a little more forward on deck 12. Deck 12 has about 100 fewer cabins from the front elevators going forward.
  5. We don't spend much at all on the cruise or in the ports. On our last 14 night transatlantic we spent more on food and cocktails in the airport then on the cruise itself. Souvenirs for us and the family ended years ago.
  6. 700, 7000. After 15 years were are only at 173. We start our next 18 night cruise 2 points short of D+. I think we well ask/demand for compensation.
  7. Next time I am sitting the Dl and am working on my 4th gin and tonic with a plate of wings in front of me I will think about the emotional gin and tonic carrot dangling in front of me and wonder if it was worth staying loyal. .
  8. Pretty easy to change if you are flexible and don't mind a 8:30 reservation.
  9. Probably a Neighborhood, you have to factor in Royals consistent inconsistencies. happy cruising.
  10. Don't jump the gun. He is on the phone trying to locate his baseball cap and wife beater to complete his ensemble.
  11. $12 difference, two extra days. You may get what you pay for.
  12. Both ships are close in size and age. After the refurb the CCL Radience will carry about 800 more passengers than Jewel. The RCL Radiance class ships have more glass and windows then just about any ship out there and the only ships with outside glass elevators. Before the refurb CCL Radiance sailed as the Victory which was a very family and kid friendly ship. All things being equal I love RCL. Which ever you choose congrats and happy cruising.
  13. I have seen a little dog sitting by it self in a chair at a table for two by the window in Windjammer.
  14. Side note. We live in Temecula, our son just came back today from a 2 day girls fast-pitch softball tournament in Phoenix. He said the weather was awesome. We got rain all day today. happy cruising
