  1. We had a great time on Grandeur last year. It became a bit of a ghost ship after midnight (think there were maybe 10 folk in the disco) and the Centrum was empty earlier than that, but that was OK by us. Bands weren't as great as other RC cruises (could've done with a guitarist to cover livelier songs than the pianist) but again, it probably suited the crowd on board.
  2. Not sure how RCI will deal with this, but given there could be a significant number of folk booked on the cruise that are not affected by the change in policy (myself, for example, as a non-US citizen) why should the ship not still stop there, and simply deny those who ARE affected the option of going ashore ? Don't see why we should suffer for a US political decision.
  3. If you were to accidentally return late to the ship, and it had sailed without you, would that have the same result ? Don't know what happens with luggage when folk miss the ship...
  4. While I'm not from New England, I absolutely agree that their way of serving lobster with just the clarified butter is FAR better than slobbering it with mayo !
  5. Its a personal taste, thing - I quite like the coffee served on board. Not absolutely top quality, but perfectly drinkable.
  6. At least the two days - if I went back, I'd look at the option of doing three... Sent from my SM-G955F using Forums mobile app
  7. Not really necessary - WiFi widely available in all the ports Sent from my SM-G955F using Forums mobile app
  8. Sea Day: Starbucks in the morning, a beer and a soft drink pre-lunch, soft drink/beer with food, 2 cocktails in the afternoon, glass of wine with dinner, two or three beers at the evening entertainment and possibly a malt before bed -- drinks package is easily worth it. Port Day: Starbucks in the morning, bottle of water getting off, cocktail on boarding, glass of wine with dinner, two or three beers at the evening entertainment and possibly a malt before bed, package is still worth it.
  9. Have to put a word in for the Scottish breakfast - which differs from the English one mainly by having potato scones instead of hash browns, and sometimes haggis too. Tend not to get mushrooms, but almost always black pudding. Really wish potato scones were available on sailings from Southampton - fantastic with a fried egg.
  10. We never rush off. Last time on Navigator they had to practically chase us out after one last coffee ! We plan our travel in case we're delayed, so have that bit of breathing space. Sent from my SM-G955F using Forums mobile app
  11. Am sure the staff will love that - would never have dreamed of getting room service without tipping less than $2 per tray, but if Royal reckon that's too much... Sent from my Lenovo YT-X703F using Forums mobile app
  12. I wouldn't sit there silently if they were being abusive, and would definitely dig them up for it. Sent from my SM-G955F using Forums mobile app
  13. 100% this won't work while at sea. You'll be on the ship's mobile network and paying handsomely for the privilege. If it's to use in port, then fair enough. Data tethering is permitted on this plan. Sent from my SM-G955F using Forums mobile app
