  1. 1. There are many ways to know: they ask you for your card when you go to the restaurant, they ask for your card when you order a drink, if you ask the concierge to help with anything, they ask your room number. 2. As a Haven guest, I would hate to have to make reservations for the Haven Restaurant. It felt like the last place on the ship that wasn’t truly freestyle- without reservations required. 3. It was implemented on our ship on June 13th. Who knows if it impacted us. But there was a wait for a table for two on Saturday night (15th).
  2. The bliss horizon lounge has mini m&m, gummy bears, peanut m&m, fruits, pastries (chocolate croissants, raspberry chocolate croissant puffs, sweet biscuits with frosting drizzle) as well as a few breads/pound cakes- pistachio pound cake, walnut bread, strawberry pound cake, muffins, and yogurts a few other items that are kept refreshed next to the espresso/cappuccino machine all day.
  3. That’s likely already accounted for in the space for the restaurant, along with peoples’ preferences with dining times, time spent at the lounge, etc.
  4. I thought so too, but took the perspective of “can’t hurt to ask.” And it didn’t!
  5. Part of the Muster Drill should include mandatory elevator etiquette instruction. Things like: 1) if there is someone waiting on an elevator standing with a walker/cane, it’s courteous to let them go first, pushing them out of the way is not courteous 2) don’t stand in the middle of the door blocking all entering and exiting passengers. If you must stand there, exit to allow people to get off. 3) don’t press the up button again until the doors on the current up elevator close, they will re-open and the others will pass us because it isn’t pressed. 4) don’t fart on the elevator.
  6. We had Food Republic for lunch. You get 4 items per specialty voucher. So two of us used ours- we got 8 items- enough for 4 of us to share! We had a bit of a hiccup checking in. They said we were all out of specialty plan. So we had to work it out. We found out that teppanyaki charged us twice. So it took a bit to work that out but then we were able to order and the food started coming quickly- very quickly. Maybe we could have ordered things in pieces and it would have been staggered? Not sure how that works with the dining plan.
  7. We tried the gelato bar. My brother tried every single flavor and he ended up with the raspberry and lemon sorbet cup. Reasonable prices- $3 for a scoop in a cone.
  8. Dinner in the Haven last night was delicious. One note- they must have run out of romaine because the Caesar salads were made with ice berg lettuce. The Mocha Moose was delicious! Wish I had tried it earlier 🙂
  9. Agreed. All that said, who knows if it was just a busy Haven night or what. But if it is already that busy, what would it be like with more people?
  10. So I need to share some things about rooms and locations, now that we’re getting off. We were in 18114. There was running on deck 19 above us until probably 9:30/10 each night. There was also some sort of holding tank above the room. In the bathroom there was a consistently loud sound of sloshing water. It was less consistent in the room itself but every once in a while we heard what could only be described as a cannon ball sized splashing noise. My brother was in 18126. They reported that being next to both the outdoor ping pong noise from their deck and a service room right next door, it was not an ideal location. Starting at 5, they would hear constant noise and even flushing from that side of the room. I did like being in the Haven area, not sure if I would book outside or not.
  11. And I should correct my former statement not assistant concierge- assistant Maitre D
  12. In Juneau, I wore a light sweater, fleece and waterproof jacket- was a little chilly but dry enough. Skagway was a hoodie and waterproof jacket, just fine-cold hands while kayaking. Ketchikan was a light sweater and I was rolling the sleeves. Glacier bay was a heavy coat in the early hours but by noon was in a light sweater. So pack for everything but those who suggest layers aren’t wrong!
  13. It was for about 3 hours yesterday if you could find a place in the sun away from the wind (front worked best for us). People were in the pool and on the slides, etc. some sat in sweatshirts next to others in bathing suits. Seattle day and yesterday were the only days where I think it was possible.
