  1. I'm pretty sure hot chocolate is free and readily available during breakfast hours in the dining room and at the buffet. Jim
  2. Premium is strictly about location. Some might have a bigger balcony too. Deluxe, regardless of location, is distinguished by having a loveseat. And they're a few square feet bigger interiors. Jim
  3. It probably depends on how many ships are in port and what kind of "parking spot you get. When we were there 5 years ago it was actually worked into the comic's routine. Something that seemed to take forever was described as being "Longer than a tender to Belize." We probably spent 30 minutes in the boat each way. Jim
  4. Yes. All side-facing balconies on Aloha deck are covered. Jim
  5. Just tell you waiter for the night. He'll want your cabin number, probably. Other than that, it's the same as with traditional dining. Jim
  6. Glad to hear it. It doesn't affect us, just a fairness issue. Jim
  7. My mistake. I was assuming this was a 2-step repositioning cruise (FLL to NY via random Caribbean islands, then NYC to Quebec). Not the case, I see. Jim
  8. Please note that premium balconies are simply location. Only "deluxe" balcony cabins have the loveseat. And they are only on Royal class ships. Jim
  9. That about sums it up for me. The only thing we liked was the entertainment. Jim
  10. We were on deck 12, one deck below the decks skynight warned about. I would agree decks 14 and 15 on starboard side present privacy issues, but 12 was fine with me. Jim
  11. Sounds to me like two cruises sold as one. In other words I think people will be embarking and disembarking, so I'd plan on Brooklyn. Jim
  12. From what I'm reading, I can't see any reason for any of you to have a beverage package. Jim
  13. On Regal earlier this month the steward had already filled the slot with his own filler card. We always tried to pull it when we went away for awhile, but we would return to find it plugged in again. Jim
  14. Last time I tried to book it we got there at 12 noon on embarkation day only to find out the entire 10-day cruise was booked up. I asked whether some of those bookings were from the previous cruise and was told no, they don't allow that. So go as soon as you possibly can with your fingers crossed. Jim
