  1. Royal Caribbean has what they call WOW bands on a few of their newer ships, but it’s is a wristband with no removable part. Disney World uses Magic Bands, which do have a removable ‘puck’ that can but used in wristbands, keychains, etc. - the cruise lines uses them for the kids club only. The Princess Medallions don’t translate across any other cruise line.
  2. Thanks everyone - we ended up going a different direction and getting a King Corner Room at the Doubletree San Juan for under $200 a night plus resort fees. Since it's Easter weekend we wanted to have a beach close by in case Old San Juan is primarily closed.....
  3. I don’t think anyone even asked on our last couple of cruises - they certainly didn’t have us do a form.....
  4. We will be sailing a Southern to the ABC islands on Celebrity in April. We'll be in San Juan on Good Friday and St. Kitts Easter Sunday. How extensively will businesses be shut on those days? Will tour operators, taxis, beach amenities, etc. still operate? Thanks for any personal experiences.
  5. Thanks, Everyone! That's disappointing to hear about the Sheraton. There are some great deals on it through Costco. I'll definitely consider the Casablanca, but I doubt I could convince my 6'4" husband to share a queen bed at El Convento. Does anyone know anything about either Villa Herencia or Decanter Hotel?
  6. We're sailing to the ABC islands out of San Juan in April 2020. Two short questions to help us select a pre-cruise hotel.... 1. Which dock will the Summit leave from? 2. Sheraton Old San Juan - anyone have thoughts positive or negative? Is a Junior Suite worth it over a regular King room? Thanks - I'm sure I'll have more questions in the future.....
  7. Disney stops at Falmouth, not Royal's private islands of Labadee or CoCo Cay. We stopped at Falmouth on our last Disney cruise.
  8. Anthem had pickleball in the SeaPlex, alternating with bumper cars, roller skating, basketball and trapeze school.
  9. Got off the Anthem this morning. Self assist started at 7:45. You’ll need to take a cab - the 8am Royal transfer bus to Newark left around 9:20.
  10. Thanks to everyone for the input - it's great to know that we can't lose with any of these itineraries. We do plan to stick to the San Juan departure. We adore old San Juan and want to fly in a day or two earlier to explore more. as to doing all 3 and a B2B2B, well, maybe after we retire! I think that would be our days off for the year. Looks like I have some more research to do.....
  11. True - Celebrity calls everything sailing out of San Juan a "Southern". In any case, the only ports out of all of those we've done are St. Thomas and St. Maarten, so we'd be open to any of these routes.... Great! Looking forward to hearing about your trip! Yeah, we are lightweights, to be sure. One, maybe two fruity drinks for me and a couple of Weisse beers for my husband and we are set.
  12. We have been thinking about trying a Southern Caribbean sailing for some time now. I'm looking at sailings on the Summit for next year, and would love input for folks who have experienced these routes. We'd be doing Aqua class, which we have done on the Solstice and loved. A bit on us - we are active empty-nesters in our mid- to late-50s. Would like one really good beach day, but also interested in helicopter tours, food tours, etc. Not so much on museums, but like a bit of history, and we don't snorkel or drink much. I'm a fan of sea days but my husband not so much. Would love to hear your thoughts on excursions, scenery, etc. Possible itineraries are: San Juan > at sea > Barbados > St. Lucia > Antigua > St. Kitts > St. Thomas > San Juan San Juan > Tortola > St Maarten > Domenica > Barbados > Grenada > at sea > San Juan San Juan > St. Kitts > at sea > Aruba > Curacao > Bonaire > at sea > San Juan Thanks!!
  13. As of earlier this week, Anthem has switched over to the new app instead of Royal IQ.
  14. The outlet in the bathroom is specifically for electric shavers. I don’t believe they are made for other thugs.
