  1. I would expect the ship will be at full capacity every cruise (based on miniumum cabin capacity). But, on holidays and over the summer, it may be closer to max capacity based on maximum cabin capacities. Standard cabin is 2 people (except for the multi-bedrooms, etc), but can sleep 3 or 4 in couches and fold down beds. I would expect the February date would have fewer kids (not none) than there would be at Easter.
  2. we are on a B2B on Enchantment holidays. Our 4 nite got the package a couple of months ago. Ironically, we want it on our 6 nite, but it isn't in the planner. So, seems hit and miss for some reason. Our first leg is over Christmas while our second leg is over New Years. Never makes sense, but it is Royal.
  3. I now suggest one of these for your cruise. If you have chargers, fan, etc.... and a CPAP, this little gizmo gives you an extra plug. Plus, it seemed to hold tight in receptacles that are loose. I just put one in my CPAP bag so it will be there next trip. https://www.amazon.com/Hug-Plug-Outlet-Adapter-Ivory/dp/B00CFQPJKS/ref=asc_df_B00CFQPJKS/?tag=bingshoppinga-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid={creative}&hvpos={adposition}&hvnetw=o&hvrand={random}&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=e&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl={devicemodel}&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=&hvtargid=pla-4583726545512539&psc=1
  4. If other cabins in your category are available, you may be able to change cabins. But, yes, Guarantees are a guarantee of a cabin. You get assigned what you get assigned. Luck (or unluck) of the draw.
  5. Yes, please come back and post your pics...… We are in this or 7166 for a B2B, so looking forward to seeing pics.
  6. Perfect! Thanks so much. Even if it's just reasonably close, it gives me an idea of prices, etc. We don't normally do bottles, but given the holidays we are thinking about stepping it up a bit. Thank you for your help.
  7. For us, the line is some fuzzy feeling about value. We value relaxation, service, reasonable prices, relatively courteous fellow passengers and value for the money. Like I said, fuzzy. We've had some bad experiences, but none were consecutive, so we decided those were the exception. But, all that said, we are evaluating a land vacation given the prices for the cruise style we enjoy. Prices are up, drink packages are often very expensive and we've done the ports. None of that is a line in the sand, but a fuzzy place that we ponder every time we travel.
  8. Can someone provide a list of wine/champagne prices, images of the MDR wine list or a link to a post that has this? We will be on Enchantment for the holidays and looking to decide if we buy champagne by the bottle, by the glass or bring a couple of bottles onto the ship. I'm probably looking at something better than the $12-ish per glass selection. We have the drink package so we get a discount from bottle price and a starting point for the by the glass options. I did do a search, as limited as my search abilities are, but couldn't find anything.
  9. taking nothing away from this site.... I personally use squaremouth.com to buy trip insurance. Most of the brands mentioned above is available on squaremouth. I've heard good things on these boards about both sites.
  10. Majesty had a bottle of Gold for $90....in a box. Not sure about "regular".
  11. We will be on Enchantment in a few months. Can you tell me what temperature in MDR was like? When we were on Majesty recently, MDR was very warm during second seating. DW wants me to wear a tux or suit, and I'm worried about it being too hot. Much appreciated.
  12. And, if the price goes down further, you can always cancel the purchase you've already made and rebuy at the lower price. So, if you can, its best to lock in a price you can live with and look for lower prices later. Assuming that fits your situation. Enjoy!
  13. I would agree to start neat, then you can add some water and/or ice. Try some different ones. Try a manhattan, try other mixed bourbon drinks. Don't be afraid to dislike something, just order something different. If you can get in a bar at a quite time, talk with the bartender, they may be able to take you through some suggestions. You've already paid for it. 🙂 Now, for summer weather enjoyment of bourbon, try a Kentucky Arnold Palmer. Don't use good stuff. Don't use firewater either. Pour an Arnold Palmer (1/2 iced tea, half lemonade... season to taste with a shot or two of bourbon.... enjoy on ice). As you sit in the shade enjoying it, you can say a thank you. Just pay it forward.😎
  14. Nothing would surprise me. We'd be disappointed, but I'm not paying Holiday Dinner prices. If we hadn't gotten X-mas eve and NYE at the price we did, we'd just enjoy the MDR.
