  1. If you think this is drama you should have been on here back during the smoking on the balcony days when people could still smoke on them! 🤓
  2. Wow! So I guess the $47 I paid for my upcoming cruise on Freedom next month in October is a good price! When I paid it I was like.... this is a lot, but now this post has made me happy I purchased it! 😎
  3. Great comments! As I said with me, I always thought the meet & mingle was to meet and mingle and put faces to the names you have been communicating with in the roll call. But to have let’s say 60 people show up to the meet and mingle for a roll call that have had maybe 5 or 6 people communicating in the roll call every 3 or 4 months is not worth it to me as there was never any bonds made of people I would want to meet. It would really just be faces there as anywhere else on the ship.
  4. Roll Calls are nowhere near as what they use to be in the day where it was a chance to get to know other people that will be on your cruise and then finally meet each other and the meet & greet as well as other events you all might have set up. My upcoming cruise in October has had a roll call for well over a year but there has been very low and minimum participation but there are people signed up for the meet & mingle well above the number of people that have been in the roll call. This will be my first cruise where I did not sign up for the meet and mingle as I didn’t see the point of doing so when there was never really any communication in the roll call where bonds were established or anything as have been the case in all roll calls in the past that I have been in. So with all that said do you do you all think that roll calls and meet and mingles are becoming a thing of the past and is on its way out?? Like that is so yesteryear???? What you think??
  5. I have never really understood why Royal don’t change these things up. I know there are new cruisers but there are a lot of repeat cruisers also. If it was changed up sometime it would still be new the new cruisers but something fresh for the repeaters over the years. I do not go to the 70’s party anymore because after so many years you get tired of The village People routine on every cruise on every ship and the rest of the songs that is played and song at that party. Love and marriage same questions on every ship every show. They need to come up with a better idea as far as picking the couples for that. I still like Quest but there is only so many adult themed things you can ask for without it getting too risqué! It’s the participants that make The Quest still fun to watch except for the ones that have played time and time again and are not spontaneous but rehearsed to get a laugh.
  6. Of all my cruises o think I remember the names of 2. Before my cruises I don’t research who the CD is because it’s not a big deal to me. I have been on cruises though where I thought the Activities person was better than the CD.
  7. I ate in the CK on Oasis and was not impressed. I had two nights booked but I did not go the 2nd night as we just didn’t like it!
  8. Hey it’s been a long time! How you folks been doing? Hope all is well with you!
  9. Even if you were able to make the connection more than likely your luggage won’t make it to the connecting flight on time.
  10. It might be just me but I cruise the Mediterranean for the ports. It might be intensive but the ports are what I take that cruise for. I can take Oasis Class Western Caribbean cruises for Sea Days and to stay on the ship!
  11. Pre-packaged meats?! Come on dude really???! I suggest you take a galley tour on your next cruise as it’s obvious you don’t know what’s going on in there!
  12. Are in there on Oasis and my thought is it is overrated. It didn’t help that my halibut came out frozen in the middle!
  13. Man our first cruise back in 2008 was on Sovereign of the Seas. It was before I found out about this forum so I was read reviews from that same place. People that has been around for a while probably remember the reviews that Sovereign use to get back then. After I booked the cruise I thought what was I getting myself into because just like what you are reading it would be 20 bad reviews then there would be 1 good one or on “it’s just alright” review. Well we went and had the time of our lives and it turned us on to the love of cruising. I came real close to canceling that cruise back then but we were glad I didn’t. Like someone else has said I too didn’t read anymore reviews in that section after that 1st cruise. I have written some of my own reviews here in this forum with links in my signature block and I try to keep it real. For the most part I think you find more balanced reviews here in the forum.
