  1. Just noticed the itineraries for 2021 have been released. Two things ; first they have not deployed any larger ships other than Anthem out of Southampton and Harmony out of Barcelona ; second their prices are astronomical. Looking at Southampton cruises for a grand suite they’re asking £15000 for an 11 night cruise and that’s with a buy one get 60% off second person. I usually cruise a couple of times a year with RCI but not at those prices. It’s clear to me that they’re trying it on.
  2. On two ships I’ve been on this year (Independence and Explorer) they’ve had Heineken 00 and O’Douls alcohol free beer
  3. It’s the Venice one leaving Tarragona on 5th September. It was originally sailing from Barcelona but they changed it last night. It’s on jewel of the seas
  4. That sounds an interesting option. I’ll have a look thanks
  5. Looking to book a cruise next September on Jewel but I see that she is leaving from Tarragona and not Barcelona. Anyone got any ideas for hotels in this area please? I’ve looked at trip advisor but not always convinced that the reviews are accurate
  6. Thanks for the responses. The cruise I was going to book was for next Sept 2020 so hopefully nothing will change by that time. Sailed out of Venice a couple of years ago and it was really stunning.
  7. it was reported that it came in during September.
  8. Has anyone experience of the changes to where the ship is going to be docked in Venice please. Thinking of booking a cruise which includes an overnight in Venice so looking to find out how you would get in to Venice from the new terminal. I also understand that you have to pay €10 to access the city which seems an anti tourism decision. Any information would be great. Thanks
  9. went on the US website and it states Mykonos is tendered. We were there last year and it was docked in the new terminal. Thanks for your help
  10. On a cruise next July taking in Mykonos and Santorini on Explorer. I know there’s no choice for Santorini in terms of dropping anchor in the bay and tendering to the port. However in terms of Mykonos, how do they choose who goes to the docking terminal and who drops anchor in the bay. We arrive at 0800 as well as three other ships as far as I can see. Is it first come first served, which would seem odd given the size of ships. I also couldn’t find any information on google if it was arranged when the itinerary was decided. Thanks
  11. Saab is correct you disembark using a floating pier and walk directly off the ship. The hop on hop off bus which takes you up the mountain if you want starts at the first building you come to. It’s right next to the pier
  12. My wife and I were on her in May this year and found her to be in fine fettle. Staff, food and facilities were great. Thoroughly enjoyed it and would board again in a heartbeat
  13. I agree with Lois, my wife and I were on it a few weeks ago and really didn’t see anything untoward. We didn’t look for anything untoward either. I guess if you want to find fault you can do that but we were there to enjoy ourselves and we did. The food was good, the staff brilliant and we had a fab cruise.
