  1. Wish I was going on Symphony..... my favorite schooner bar piano player Kelly is on that ship now!
  2. Thank you for your insights on your cruise. Congratulations on your retirement! I so agree with the two top tables. My husband had to request a change in table one night on Freedom as we were almost sitting in the laps of the people next to us. We will be on Allure again in February of 2020. I am looking forward to another cruise on her. We are also looking at a Carnival Magic cruise in August of 2020. It would be our first on Carnival after turning diamond on Royal. Thanks for your brief inputs in comparisons. Barbara
  3. We are on Anthem in June with a party of 12. RCI said they could not make us reservations in advance plus it would only accommodate up to 10. Also they could not make advance reservations because rooms are cross referenced.????? However they said see the Maitre D immediately when on board and they could then accommodate us. Right now only 5:30 or after 8 showing up as available times. We will end up eating in WJ I am sure for a few days with schedule conflicts at those times. Oh well.
  4. So sorry to hear about Trainman-2's passing. Every time I read a review from him, I thought of my father. It is so nice and thoughtful of you to do a tribute in his honor. He touched so many lives through his reviews. Looking forward to your trip report. I want to cruise on Symphony next and we are doing this itinerary out of Miami on Allure in April. Can't wait to read more. Enjoy and Happy Sailing! Barbara
  5. Well that is surely not a good way to start off your trip. It is no fun waiting for your room that long. Hope things smooth over for you both and your cruise is a great one. We will be on Allure April 14. Can not wait for our 3rd time on her. Looking forward to reading along. We are in the single digits and below zero this week if that’s any consolation. Barbara
  6. Very interesting review. I was curious about what happenened on this cruise and how everything was handled. You have written a well balanced review of the positives and what needs work and improvements on this ship. I hope you make it back to your missed ports in the future and have a wonderful experience there. Wishing you you well and safe travels, Barbara
  7. So glad to hear all the feedback and see the picture. I signed up my 16 year old daughter for this class as she is obsessed with everything Kpop, BTS, asian cultures, and of course sushi. I signed her up for the class in June on the Anthem. Thank you all for the information. Barbara
  8. Fantastic!!! What an amazing and thorough review and trip report. I am really impressed with your pictures. The ship looks amazing. Symphony will be on my 2020 list as we are going on Allure and trying Anthem for the first time next year. Thank you for your time and for taking the time to answer everyone’s questions. Bravo and continued safe travels, Barbara
  9. Thank you for your information. I am looking forward to being back onboard Allure for our third time next spring. Enjoy your B2B. We did our first on Freedom this past summer. Loved being able to stay on as everyone else got the boot. LOL. Barbara
  10. Chicago to Ft. Lauderdale were also crazy but it is weekend before Easter and Easter Sunday. I'll get away flights or cheapest flights are blocked out. We were on website within 10 minutes of them opening. Barbara
  11. Really enjoying your review. You have a great way of writing your thoughts and being very honest about all that you experience. I will be on Allure in April next year after her move to Miami although Ft. Lauderdale is our favorite port so far. I hope the third time is better than the last two for me but hubby and DD love Allure so we are making another go before Anthem next June. Enjoy the rest of your cruise. I will be reading along after I go back to work tomorrow for the first time in 2 months! Happy sailing, Barbara
  12. Looking forward to reading this Live trip report. I really enjoyed your Alaska review. My husband booked this itinerary for our spring break next year when Allure moves to Miami. I am very curious about your port excursions for Roatan and Costa Maya. It is a great day when you can book a cruise and plan for it in 4 days! Enjoy another wonderful adventure with your family.
