  1. You cannot wear shorts for safety reasons, pants and closed toe shoes. Ours started at 11 am.
  2. Zip locks to wash out swimsuits in. Hooks to hand up a mesh shoe organizer because some doors won't take the over the door hooks and mesh because plastic gets nasty and cracks. Open your suitcase and slide under the bed for dirty clothes then you are already part way packed.
  3. Hair straighteners are permitted and can double as an iron.
  4. No because you are drinking on the ship not land. The only place that I know of that makes them charge an extra tax on board when in port is Texas.
  5. When we cruised in May the entire area was smoking. They had ashtrays and notices/signs for the who area. Maybe they are trying to split it now. It is a beautiful area with lots of breeze. Smoking areas are limited so please do not complain that there are a few places people can smoke.
  6. Pick towards the front of the ship because they have a beautiful smoking area at the back of the ship behind Boleros.
  7. I just saw a video from another angle than the first one I saw and I am surprised how clear it shows him lifting her out the window. Wow, I could not even imagine someone doing that. https://www.yahoo.com/news/royal-caribbean-says-video-shows-081943671.html
  8. Just cruised the Grandeur and at Adventure Ocean they gave kids who didn't have a lanyard one. They required us to show her card when she went in and they kept it until she left. We bought the lanyard with the plastic sleeve for our kids because on some ships you cannot put a hole in the card because of a chip.
  9. We like the change. You can now do sea day lunches as well as go to more than one restaurant in a night if you can eat that much. They told us when we used it that you can only make one reservation per night so if we went to two restaurants in a night one would have to be walk-up/space available. We also were not charged extra for the habachi. For us it depends on which ship and who is going.
  10. We have decided to spend 2020 cruising out of Baltimore and Bayonne to avoid air for family of 5. We will hit many of the same ports and we have been to many of them before so we just look a little harder for something to do different at the ports or plan something on board for one of the ports instead of getting off. One thing we found pretty cool is to look for cooking classes in the ports. Even if you aren't big on cooking they can be fun to learn to make and eat local food. Oh and we took a break from cruising for about 10 years and did all inclusive vacations so we are glad to be back to cruising.
  11. No they are not compensated, it is up to you to tip for your free drinks. We tip well in the casino and the service is always great.
  12. My kids, 8 and 13, loved it. They enjoyed time with us and the kids/teen clubs.
