  1. Again, hoping all is well with the family. I can’t imagine that a family with children would intentionally “cut it too close” in this scenario. Prayers for them. Just hoping that no one was hurt or is ill. Katherine
  2. Love the longer cruises and do them out of the northeast. The turnaround days on shorter trips don’t bother me though especially since some ships are now not requiring passengers to actually get off the ships — the customs agents come onboard. The consecutive cruiser luncheon also is a nice feature. But I would do all 12+ days if I could! Katherine
  3. Yes, I am talking about Royal’s 75% credit any reason to cancel insurance. We have done both — cancelled before embarkation day and as a no show on embarkation day. Outcome has been the same, in our experience.
  4. The 75 % future cruise credit from the Royal insurance. I believe the OP and her mother have insurance.
  5. My opinion — You won’t get repriced after the cruise. If your mom doesn’t go apply for the credit after the cruise. The catch is that only she can use that credit - not anyone else.
  6. I love Grandeur and have sailed on her over 40 times. Yes, she is showing her age, but aren’t we all! I am glad that, if all goes according to plan, it will be on Grandeur that I will hit Pinnacle in September. The other topic — time in Bermuda. On my upcoming Adventure cruise we arrive in Bermuda at 8 am and leave at 5 pm. This is on an eight day cruise. Four total sea days which is fine with me. But that port time I am sure is difficult for those wanting to do some activities that day. I just don’t want to see Royal pull out of Baltimore. Very convenient for us and under a two hour drive.

  7. Due to DH’s health he has been a no show several times this year. We always take the RC insurance and have received the 75% voucher for a future cruise. One time, booking thru the casino, I never applied for the 75% voucher. The cruise fare was so cheap to begin with it wasn’t worth my effort. Every time we have received back the taxes, port charges, etc. All was taken care of efficiently and quickly by Royal so no worries. Enjoy your trip. Katherine
  8. I thought there was a Prime discount that is automatically applied. At least that is what a host told me. I would hope to use the diamond plus free days and then apply the discount for the rest of the trip. Am I wrong?
  9. Yes, the breakfast is the same but we have always been told to bypass the line and go directly to the back left of the DR to the diamond area.
  10. I understand your point of view and respect it. The OP may very well take your advice. I see her location as Voorhees which may be Voorhees, NJ. If so, sailing out of Cape Liberty with a bunch of children may be her best bet. I wish the OP well in her future sailings, wherever they may be. Katherine
  11. I was on Adventure in May and going back in July. I didn’t experience anything like the OP and her group (but I was able to use the Diamond/+ breakfast area) in the MDR. Sometimes trying to seat a large group like the OP had can be an issue as well. To the OP. Sorry you had a bad experience on Adventure. Summer time cruising can sometimes be hectic as is traveling with a larger group. I would, if I were you, give Adventure another chance in the future.. IMHO Adventure is a great ship.
  12. Recently on Adventure 6 nights to Canada. One formal night. I ate late seating and most were dressed, what I would call, appropriately. I don’t recall seeing shorts in the dining room at my seating. Katherine
