  1. Just a sign of how much Royal trust their employes in port... I would say the the risk of using a plug that adds an extra outlet is next to none.
  2. It's something called "Majskrokar" a straight translation would be "Corn Hocks" πŸ˜‰. It's just mashed and dried corn, more or less tasteless. We had them with us for our, by that time, 1 year old daughter.
  3. My guess is that if they home port all six Oasis-class ships in Florida, they might start offering longer cruises on the older ships (Oasis and/or Allure).
  4. Not sure what your point is, I have been to 24 different ports of call in the Caribbean, 25 if you count Key West. But what has that to do with Italy? The Greeks? We are talking about Italians.
  5. That and then add that the majority of passangers are Americans, that have few vaccation days (compared to most European countries).
  6. Well that's my opinion and I stand by it. Not like you never bash things..πŸ€”
  7. I would say that it's not an American thing, it's just the Italian way. Guess why I never would book a vaccation in Italy πŸ˜‰ By the way, I'm Swedish.
  8. Strange since both Meraviglia and Seaview were spotless. But I guess that as with all ships, the crew will be what makes or breaks the experience. I wouldn't want to go back on the Navigator for the same reason, it was dirty. I know that she have been in drydock since we sailed on her.
  9. Well you are wrong. The Radiance-class were built between 2001 - 2004 in Papenburg Germany by Meyer Werft. The Millennium-class ships were built between 1999 and 2002 at Chantiers de l’Atlantique in Saint Nazaire, France.
  10. According to Google, it's a 8 min walk. You will be able to see the waterslides from the ship.
  11. I won't tell, but have you ever seen me and Santa at the same time? πŸ˜‰πŸ˜œ
  12. And a least two of them are for sale according to a video on Youtube.
  13. Time will tell how it turns out. I wouldn't be happy if they cancel but at the same time, so far this year we have done 7nts on Harmony, 14nts on Independence and have 10nts on Radiance in September. If we would miss a cruise, this year is the year to do it.
  14. There's no other options for us, the cruise ends on Dec 23 and I work the 24th. That's why we picked this cruise, no jet-lag and flights that make it possible to use few vaccation days. If we would sail in the Caribbean we would be adding two days just in traveling time.
  15. We have spent 18nts on MSC during 2018. Sailed 11nts on Meraviglia and 7nts on Seaview, both in Europe. I'm willing to sail on MSC again, but I wouldn't pay the same for a MSC cruise as I would for a cruise with Royal. Don't go and expect to get the same experience as you would on Royal, MSC is different. Some things are better on MSC and some things are better on Royal.
  16. We have had the exact same experience. Not on MSC, but on Celebrity.. If that would have been our first cruise on Celebrity, I would never sail with them again. Now I know that it's not how it normaly works, but I still would not book Equinox as long as Jack is a supervisor onboard.
  17. I do understand that part, but what happens to the actual bookings?
  18. I know that no one can say for sure, but how do Royal act if a region becomes "hot spot" (can't find a better wording)? If they can't sail in a region, do they offer you to sail on the same ship somewhere else? Do they offer you to change to any other cruise within the same time period or do they just cancel your booking? I'm asking since we have a cruise in the Persian Gulf from Dubai in December and and as you might know there's some issues with Iran.
  19. Do NCL offer this several times a year? I have only sailed one time on NCL and it was back in 2011.
