  1. I had one once and loved it. I never thought that it was noisy, even when the band was playing in the Promenade. Mine was on deck 7 on Mariner. I would always be surprised by the noise when i opened the door to leave the room because I couldn't hear it inside the room. The only thing I didn't like was that I had an adjoining room and I could hear noise from the girl next door who was also traveling solo like I was and halfway through the cruise she hooked up with some guy and they were loud and I could hear it through the door between our rooms. I actually just booked a Promenade for a cruise sailing in three weeks. I unfortunatley could only get a connecting room again, so hopefully the person/people next to me will be quieter this time! I wouldn't hesitate to book this type of room. I really liked being able to look down at the Promenade and see what was going on and how busy things were, it was a unique alternative to other room types.
  2. For my cruise just after Thanksgiving last year they had the same promo but only for certain sailings. I seem to remember it went away for a week or so then came back under another name & I booked another shore excursion then. But there’s no guarantee they’ll have the sale again so it’s probably best to buy now. I’m trying to decide whether I really need the drink package this time before the sale ends tonight...

  3. Had an aft balcony on my last cruise. It’s definitely worth it if you can snag it. Now I’m spoiled & don’t want to cruise without one! Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  4. For some reason I can’t find the answer I’m looking for, so I’m hoping someone can help me out. Yesterday I booked a cruise leaving in 3 weeks and used a Future Cruise Credit. Since it’s only 3 weeks away I had to pay the whole balance & it said the FCC will be applied later. How long does it usually take & do I get a refund to the card I used or an onboard credit? I also have a lot of points on my RCI Visa to use & not sure what I should cash them in for, towards the fare or OBC & knowing this will help me decide. Thanks! Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  5. I really, really want to sail out of PR because the cruises coming up are so cheap & it’s my favorite place in the world, but I’m afraid I won’t be able to get off the island afterwards & not sure I feel right going there to enjoy myself when there are people still suffering on the island. I tell myself that my tourist dollars will help the economy, but I think I’m just fooling myself Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  6. I’ve been sitting at a bar at this resort during happy hour for about an hour and not one person has approached me and struck up a conversation. If this were a cruise I would have at least three new best friends by now. Cruisers are just so friendly! I’m here for a few days turning an out of state job interview into a vacation, but this just proves to me that cruising is the best way to vacation and that cruisers are the friendliest people around. Can’t wait until my next cruise!!! Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  7. Since hotels might be a problem & I live in California, I was contemplating flying to Florida, maybe Miami or Ft Lauderdale, hanging out there a day or two, then flying to SJ the day of the cruise since sail away is later in the day from that port. Has anyone tried this?

  9. I'm really torn on this issue. I'm supposed to sail out of SJ 12/2, but not sure it's a good idea. Will things be open? Will people still be homeless and suffering without water or electricity? I don't think I could relax and enjoy myself knowing people were there with that happening. Normally I would arrive a few days early and or stay a few days after but that doesn't seem possible this time. On the other hand, should I bring my tourist dollars to help the economy? Will there be any relief efforts still going on I could help with? So far I can't decide what to do.
  10. El Convento is amazing. Beautiful and in a great location. I've stayed there twice and highly recommend it. Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  11. Does anyone know how the Marriott Stellaris in Condado fared in the hurricane? I'm booked to stay there for a week starting next Tuesday & a little worried about getting to the island & back from California & how everybody is doing there. Guess I'm feeling a little guilty at the thought of relaxing in a place where others might be suffering. Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  12. Thanks everyone for the replies, I will call later today! Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  13. Has anyone received the promised 25% off for sailing Adventure post-drydock & the work on the ship not being completed? I sailed November 26th but haven't received anything. Before I call Royal I thought I should find out if anyone else received the certificate they were promised. Thanks! Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  14. I'd never even heard of this but I'd try it! I like that it says it's made from almond milk & not soy since I can't have soy. I was on Adventure last week & all they had were the regular Ben & Jerry's ice creams & some sorbet, I didn't see anything like this, unfortunately. Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  15. I only went to the MDR three nights but the only steak I saw was the Chops steak for a additional fee. Thought about getting it one night but decided in the free chicken instead. Is it possible I missed the steak on the menu? [emoji848] Sent from my iPhone using Forums
