  1. We're doing a 7 day southern Caribbean cruise in late March - Costa Maya, Roatan, Belize, and Cozumel. Anyone have any ideas when the formal nights will be? The sea days are the first and last days with the four ports in the middle. Thanks!
  2. If we buy a 4-device package, can my husband and I both use it (two devices each) or do they have some way of making sure all 4 devices belong to the same person? (We'll be on the Sky Princess, Medallion, if that makes any difference). If anyone has experienced this please let me know - thank you!
  3. We depart from NJ at the end of December, with two at sea days before reaching Florida - it will clearly be cold for those two sea days, and probably not sweltering even when we get to Florida and beyond. Do people tend to wear winter formal clothes/dinner outfits when it is still cold out, or do they just go right to cruise/Caribbean/resort wear? I'm having trouble packing!

  5. Has anyone done the Coco Cay excursion where you swim with the pigs? Is this actually enjoyable, or is it kind of scary (I'm not sure that the pigs would be interested in swimming with us - are they friendly?)
  6. What has your experience been with Coco Cay in the winter? We'll be there at the end of December. Has anyone had the ship have to skip Coco Cay because of winter weather? Or is it just cool there? Do people still swim? Many thanks for your thoughts.
  7. Also curious - trying to decide if there will be enough to occupy us, especially if it isn't particularly warm out. Anyone know if the kayaks, etc. are included?
  8. We had a great time there. We didn't rent anything extra, there were tons and tons of loungers. If you want a quieter area, go to the right when you get to the beach. There is another food service area there, and some food trucks (included), and at least one more bar. It's lovely, a perfect beach day.
  9. Our cruise is Christmas week - so likely very popular for specialty dining...
  10. Oh, that's very clever - book and prepay the one you must have, and then buy the plan, then revise it all when you get there! Thanks for this tip!
  11. There are a number of resorts on Nassau that offer day passes - has anyone been to Breezes? Do you know if the use of boats/paddleboards, etc. is included? It's hard to tell from the website. How was the food? If you've been to any of the resorts on Nassau please let me know how you liked it. Thanks!
  12. It's tempting - if it was just me and my husband I'd probably go for it, but with our (adult) kids along too, one of which has specific wishes for her birthday, we will probably just reserve a few nights of specialty dining, to avoid the uncertainty of having to wait until we're on board to make reservations (although honestly they could have sucked me in if when I started to buy it, there was a better explanation of how it worked, and the ability to select a first night dining time that would work for us - since we're waking up at 4 am to travel to the ship that day, we really would rather not wait until 8 for dinner). Thanks!
  13. I don't have an answer, but would love to hear what people have to say - we'll be on the Anthem over Hanukkah. I think a battery powered menorah is our best bet. Definitely no candles.
  14. Hi! We haven't been on Royal Caribbean in more than 20 years, so we're out of practice. I saw the promotion for a deal on unlimited dining, but the package confuses me. 1. On the first night, it says they will hold a "courtesy" reservation for you, but when I tried to secure this, it gave me only two times (something like 8 and 8:30 pm) and didn't tell me what restaurant we'd be at. Do we get a choice? 2. Is it the case that you can't book your other nights of dining until you get on the ship? How, then, can you plan your show times and other plans, if you don't know what time you'll be dining? 3. Is it possible to make sure you have a certain restaurant on a certain day? How likely are you to be able to do this? My daughter's birthday is during the cruise and she wants to go to Wonderland on her birthday. What has your experience been with this - any luck getting what you want? Are we better off just picking a few and doing the reservations in advance? Many thanks for your input (and we're on Anthem, if that matters).
  15. We'll be on the Pride of America on the 4th of July - any idea whether there will be any festivities?
