  1. Does the tub/shower combo in the Junior Suites on Symphony have a very high side to step over? We were recently on Ncl Sun and the sides were dangerously high for us about 20" which was above my knee. We have been on Allure & Oasis & don't remember them being that high then again that was 6 years ago so maybe it didn't bother us as much then. Does anyone know the height or how I can find it out?
  2. This cruise was the 5th one I have booked more than 700 days ahead of time, but it was the first cruise we have booked before the ship was launched. We booked Freedom and Allure shortly after they joined the fleet, but never booked a cruise before the ship was even wet. Lloyd’s thread about the construction of the ship was still in its first 500 posts. 12 of our 17 cruises have been just my wife and I, but our friends Jon (b1gjon) and his wife Penny have joined us on 4 cruises. (Majesty, Jewel twice, and Adventure) In the weeks prior to us boarding Adventure in 2017, we told Jon and Penny that they had to try an Oasis class ship. I asked Jon to pick one. The only pre-requisite was the cruise had to include our May 2nd anniversary. (38 years this time) Jon spotted Symphony on the schedule and had seen Harmony in port that spring. This was the first cruise I have taken that I didn’t pick the ship and itinerary. I figured it would be fun to go with them and see their reactions boarding this class of ship for the first time. (Best laid plans of mice and men) Even though it was 700+ days out, CC wouldn’t let me create a roll call for Symphony yet as they hadn’t created a section in the roll calls for her yet. I kept trying every day, but the one day I was unable to get online, it opened. I would have to get over the disappointment of not creating the roll call. As fate, would have it, the creator and the first 3 people to post to that roll call jumped ship. (pun intended) So at least I was the longest member of the roll call and entitled to all the benefits and recognition that comes with that. I didn’t book the cruise for another couple of weeks as I wanted to do so on board Adventure. Jon booked his before me and following my advice got a balcony on deck 12. Oddly enough when I did book on-board Adventure, the Next Cruise rep said there were no deck 12 balconies left. (This was still 700 days out) I got a deck 14 balcony, but 5 months later changed it to deck 12. I’ve had mixed results with the NEXT CRUISE people on different ships, but Adventure and Freedom were both excellent in that department. (Symphony not so much) The roll call did get active with more than 600 days out. We all watched the building of the ship, early Solarium photos were popular as we speculated about the pool and what show would be the main Broadway show. None of us predicted Hairspray, but then again, nobody in my group had seen it before. More fun was had watching the float out and Symphony’s summer med run in 2018 and her eventual TA and arrival into Miami. Of course we also got to watch the new terminal being built and enjoyed the reviews from the early Mariner and Symphony cruises. During the later part of the countdown we had 737 max issue arise and of course we wondered our repercussions would be. We are flying into FLL and shuttling to Miami. Many of our roll call folks were staying at the Holiday Inn at the port before the cruise, so we booked that one as well. I will continue this during the day today and hopefully conclude it within a couple of days! PIctures are coming soon.
  3. Is the desk in the standard ceanview staterooms movable? Looking at picture the desk has legs so I was thinking it was possible.
  4. Hello and Welcome! This is my 7th cruise and my 7th preview and trip report on the CC boards. I consider myself an avid cruiser, but not a critic per se. I am not trained to critique. I will report on all the things I consider to be important, and I hope you enjoy reading my report. This is our second cruise this year, and we greatly enjoyed Adventure of the Seas for the 9 day Eastern Caribbean itinerary in January. That report is linked in my signature. This is our first time on an Oasis class ship and this cruise will be a 4-day, 3-night out of Port of Miami. It is our first time cruising out of Miami, which is a 4 hour drive from our home. Who are we? My husband C and I are both busy at work 5 days a week and spend the weekends gardening, taking walks, practicing our photography, and catching up on all the chores missed during the week. When we travel, we go offline (mostly) and use that time to catch up with each other.
  5. Hello Cruise Friends… It's time for everyone to sail along on the beautiful new lady in town Symphony of the Seas... Hopefully everyone has recovered from my last trip report and your Oasis face is ready and turned into a Smiling Symphony face.. Hard to believe we are at the start of the 2019 cruise season already. During the 2018 cruise season, it started in February sailing with good friends on Rhapsody of the Seas and ended the season with a few of those same wonderful friends aboard the Oasis of the seas. I'm excited that the 2019 cruise season is starting how 2018 started and ended. During 2018 "Live" trip reports were only done on Harmony and Oasis. I'm super excited to start out the 2019 cruising season on newest and biggest cruise ship Symphony of the Seas... Some of my most recent "Live" trip reports with Oasis class ships... "Live" from Oasis of the Seas, November 4-11, 2018. "Live" from Harmony of the Seas, September 8-15, 2018 and..."Live" from the Oasis of the Seas, November 12-19, 2017 part One Then there is a super old one aboard the Allure of the Seas.. "Live" from Allure of the Seas. November 17-24, 2013 If you're wanting main dining room and Windjammer experiences, well you are in luck we'll be providing you with some of those experiences as this trip we've opted out of the Ultimate dining package. We do have BoGo (Chops & Hooked) for the first two nights then the remainder of the trip will be dining room, unless we decide to add on another specialty restaurant night mid cruise. Wings at Playmakers one night is looking to be a reality. I'll be cruising again in May on the Allure of the Seas and will be getting the Ultimate dining package during that cruise. This is sort of a port intense cruise for an Oasis Class cruise with only two sea days. Though we port in Nassau one day so that day will most likely be treated as a sea day. Our itinerary during the next 7 days and 7 nights: I'm dedicating this cruise and "Live" trip report to long time "Live" trip reporter.... Trainman-2 (Jim) who passed away on January 10, 2019. Here's to you Trainman-2 (Jim), you touched and inspired many lives here on cruise critic and other boards. Whose ready for a Trainman breakfast sandwich? Trainman-2 may your memory live and cruise on... One of Trainman-2 Jim's memorable "Live" was when he sailed Freedom of the Seas doing his first solo cruise and memorial for his late wife Carol. Trainman-2 LIVE from the FREEDOM of the SEAS, Sailing 5 Sep 2010 Below are a few of Trainman-2's other "Live" reports Trainman-2 LIVE From the ALLURE of the SEAS with Trainman & Judith Trainman-2 [LIVE] From the Serenade of the Seas 2-12 December 2016 Trainman-2 LIVE From the Serenade of the Seas with Trainman-2 & Judith Trainman-2 LIVE From the ALLURE, 11 Jan 2015, With Trainman-2, Judith, and LYRIC Trainman-2 LIVE from the Vision of the Seas Sailing 5 Oct 2012 Trainman-2 "LIVE" from the VISION of the SEAS With Trainman-2 & Judith Trainman-2 "LIVE" From the Allure of the Seas - 15 - 22 January 2012 Trainman-2 LIVE From the Oasis of the Seas - Sailing 17 September 2011 (Saturday) Trainman-2 LIVE From The Oasis of the Seas!

However on November 28, 2018 I had received an email with an opportunity to RoyalUp. Decided on 11/29/18 to put a bid in since my room was complementary. My bid was the lowest possible $200 so would be a total of $400 if awarded for a neighborhood balcony. As of Monday, I figured I would not have an upgrade and I was fine with that, as the interior rooms are nice and on my last cruise this past November I was in an ocean view balcony on Oasis. On Tuesday afternoon, Four days prior to cruise day I received the RoyalUp email that my bid had been accepted moving me from an interior room on deck 3 to a boardwalk balcony on a higher deck. Considering the price that I actually paid I feel it was an alright upgrade going from an interior room to a boardwalk balcony for $400.00. My room is only a few rooms from the very stern of the ship so this should allow me a fairly nice view of the ocean once out at sea. On my past cruises on this class ship I've had a boardwalk balcony pretty close to the stern which allowed for nice views. With this change the person whom originally had my room must have been upgraded to an ocean view balcony. Welcome aboard! Sit back, relax and get ready to go cruising! Is it Saturday yet? Two more days of work then its off to Miami! Whose ready to cruise? Oh yeah, Tapatalk is with cruise critic is back, how exciting is that? Till a later time, soon to be "Live" from "Symphony of the Seas!"
  6. Talk about a GREAT change of itinerary!!!!! Over the past few months, we’ve been hard at work transforming our private destination, CocoCay, into Perfect Day at CocoCay and we’re excited to share that we’ve added it to our itinerary! You’ll now experience everything Perfect Day at CocoCay has to offer, and as a result, we’ll be in Nassau, Bahamas on May 27th from 7:00 AM to 4:00 PM. Below, please find our updated itinerary.
  7. For anyone who has been on the Symphony, what are some tips/tricks you found that aren’t necessarily publicized in all of the usual e-brochures/marketing? Thanks in advance for your thoughts/tips/stories!
  8. About two months ago, I booked specific times for My Time Dining for our cruise on Symphony of the Seas. Now, in Cruise Planner, the times are gone and it merely shows "At Your Leisure" for each and every My Time Dining Reservation I previously made. Is this a temporary hiccup in the system, or some sort of real change? Just curious if anyone else is experiencing this issue. Thanks in advance.
  9. I've used many reviews here on cruise critic to not only gather as much information as possible but also to pass the time and build up excitement in the weeks leading to upcoming cruises. I've seen so many great reviews that I figured I would take a shot at it. As with any review, there are so many variables that can change someone's experiences for the better or worse. I'll try to highlight my experiences and opinions of the current largest ship at sea! Before I begin, let me give you a bit of background! DW (Nichole) and I have been really fortunate to have completed 9 cruises! We both work hard but love to vacation and try to do it as much as we can! (Always have to have something to look forward to!) Our vacation tastes range from numerous Vegas and Disney trips (both world and land) and multiple cruises. People frequently comment on the fact that we travel to repeat destinations or same style vacations but I guess when you know what you like, you just keep going back for more. I can imagine that I'm amongst like minded individuals here! In 2014, we decided that we were going to give cruising a try. We had always been interested in trying it out and seeing all the new entertainment and offerings of modern ships continued to build our interest. Not knowing if we would enjoy it and both of us being worried that Nichole may have some some sea sickness issues, we chose a 4 day cruise. Not only did we love it, but 4 days was not long enough and we found ourselves booking another cruise. The rest is history and as I've mentioned, we've been fortunate enough to complete 9 cruises across 3 cruise lines. We've landed on Royal Caribbean for our last 4 and currently really enjoy RCI and their fleet of ships. Thanks for reading along so far. Now for the part you've all come here to read and see! Without further ado, let's get started on the review of Royal Caribbeans beautiful and newest oasis class ship, Symphony of the Seas. This cruise was 18 months in the making. After our first Royal Caribbean cruise on the Allure of the Seas. We decided that we enjoyed the cruise enough to return to RCI again and visited the next cruise desk while onboard the Allure. We chose the Symphony knowing she would be the biggest and newest when our time came to cruise! 18 months seemed like a long time, heck the ship wasn’t even done being built yet! Sailing: 7 Night Eastern Caribbean April 27th 2018 Players: Myself and my most excellent traveling partner my wife Nichole. (Our daughter Lilly was also along for the ride down to FL but stayed with grandma and grandpa for the week) Ports: St Kitts & Nevis, St. Thomas, Nassau Day 0: Pre cruise day The excitement had been building and we were really excited to get down to FL and begin our vacation! After all we waited 18 months to get our hands on Symphony. We were scheduled on a 11:00 flight out of Boston and Flying into West Palm Beach. We’d be flying down to PBI and our daughter Lilly would be staying for a whole week with grandma and grandpa. My in-laws were ecstatic to be seeing Lilly and getting her all to themselves for a week! The flight was uneventful. Typical deal. Shuttle to airport, security (if you travel often and don’t have TSA pre-check, you must get it), no issues at the airport or with the flight. Arrived in West Palm on time and it was a beautiful 83 degrees! Since we had left 45 and rain, I’d say this was quite an improvement. MIL picked us up at the airport and we were on our way. We’d be staying with them the night and heading to the port in the morning. On our way to the house we stopped at Lucky’s Market. I figured for all their help, the least I could do was to cook dinner. The specific Lucky’s we were at was Coral Springs but I believe that there are a few of them throughout the Southern FL area. We make it a habit to visit this place every time we visit the in-laws. Lucky’s is amazing. Think, Whole Foods but much better and they have a bunch of beers on tap to allow you to sip and shop. We’re not huge beer drinkers but we both got a decent cider and got some shopping done! Ahh, vacation is officially starting. Shopping complete, we headed to the house and Lilly got her first taste of the grandmas swimming pool! The little girl will absolutely be a fish and one of those kids that you will need to drag out of the water! After the pool, we got Lilly off to bed, had some dinner, enjoyed the beautiful 75 degree evening and got some rest ourselves. Tomorrow was the big day that we've waited a year and a half for!
  10. Does anyone know the opening of a cabin door on Symphony of the Seas? I want to make sure I bring a wheelchair that will allow me to push someone in and out of the cabin. Thanks!
  11. I'm having a really hard time trying to decide which to book. We have sailed on the Oasis and the Symphony and are now considering the Harmony. We loved the Symphony's solarium with the pool, as tiny as it was, but since the Harmony will save us $700 we are considering it as well. For those that have sailed both what are your thoughts? Which would be your first choice to sail again? Pros and cons are more than welcome. TIA
  12. So many 1st for our family: RCL, Symphony (4/13-4/20/19), Miami, Aqua Theatre Suite, Last minute bid up to Star level with Genie! We are a family of 5, Mom and Dad that both work stressful full time jobs in order to take our 3 boys (18, 15, 11) on wonderful vacations each year. This was the year of many 1st!** For the past 6 years we have cruised on Disney Cruise Lines-DCL out of Port Canaveral and we absolutely loved cruising as a family but last year we all agreed it was time for something new. The only negative 1st is that my oldest would not be traveling with us on the Symphony this year, but hopefully he will be able to make it next year for our Mediterranean cruise on Allure. The remaining 1st are all positive………. **I became a cruise critic stalker and learned everything I could about the RCL way (thank you and you know who you all are!). **I booked the Symphony of the Seas last April 2018 for April 2019 school vacation. **I booked Suite class,,,,never could afford it on DCL and my husband was not completely sold on the 6,000 friends that we would be sailing with so I figured Suite level would give us the option of hanging with less friends should it be too much for him. **I booked the one bedroom Aqua Theatre Suite,,,,I’m thinking that folks don’t want others to know how awesome those suites are because I didn’t read many positive reviews……FYI- they are awesome unless you don’t like lounging out on a huge deck that provides both privacy and entertainment? Last but by no means not least,,,,,,,,**I did this crazy ‘bid up’ thing that everyone was chatting about on the boards….what the heck, I want to play,,,,,but it won’t happen for us, we are the family that misses ships due to Noreaster’s shutting down the whole Northeast, or misses flights due to having liquid medicine for a 5 year old that needed packed ice but the ice was melted from the ships fridge so now appeared to be something that could be used to make a bomb which caused us to get delayed in a very special security line, or has a kid that breaks bones prior to family vacations (the collarbone was the most challenging vacation!)…..real stuff here folks! Anyway, we always manage around these obstacles and we’ve got great character 😉 because of them. My point being that when **I received the email on Thursday prior to our cruise departure on Saturday that we were being upgraded to the 2 bedroom Aqua Theatre -Star Level Suite that includes a bleeping Genie……I seriously couldn’t stop the giddiness and had to try to maintain some level of professionalism for the remainder of that work day! Seriously folks, remember we are newbies here, I spent the last year taking tips from you all on purchasing drink pkg on Black Friday (check),,,,,,purchasing BOGO so we could experience the fine dining (check),,,,,,,,,,booking Coastal Kitchen every night with my Concierge just in case because it’s easier to cancel if we don’t want it (check),,,,,,,,booking all the shows as soon as possible (check),,,,,,,,,,,booking this great sushi making class that got great reviews on the CC boards (check),,,,,,,,,,,and well I didn’t use you all for excursions as I did learn a thing or two from the Disney Boards over the years so I had all my private excursions booked too! So now I have a Genie that I know very little about and I have to do some quick maneuvering to see if I actually can get a refund on my purchases that if I understood correctly are now INCLUDED!
  13. Hello Everyone, My husband and I are booked on Symphony of the Seas August 2019 Sailing! We want to try either Playmakers or Johnny Rockets for lunch one day. If you had to choose only 1, which of these 2 would you choose in terms of food and service? Thank you!
  14. DH and I just got off Symphony of the Seas today. She is a gorgeous ship and we were very pleased with services from our stateroom attendant and dining staff. We were also happy with the food in the main dining room, but food is always subjective. A few thoughts.... Originally, we booked a Guaranteed Oceanview Balcony, Category X. We were assigned a 2D on Deck 10 about 2 weeks after we booked. The cabin turned out to be a connecting cabin. We tried changing to another cabin within the same category, but to no avail. During our vacation, the neighboring occupants would allow their door to slam, and they would talk loudly late at night. The noise just seemed louder with a connecting cabin. Our stateroom attendant was excellent. He brought extra Kleenex, towels, and bathrobes as we requested. The cabin was kept spotless. There didn't seem to be as much closet space compared to other Oasis class ships, but drawer space was more than adequate. They stopped furnishing the cabin with the small coffee table, which always seemed to just get in the way. The end tables next to the bed are awfully narrow. Another nice touch is the nightlight in the bathroom. No more bringing on flameless candles to illuminate the dark. More to follow.....
  15. I am really confused! From what I can tell, it is doubtful that the Symphony will have IQ. I think there is a "new" app but it doesn't include texting. Will there be any way for our family of 8 to text each other onboard the Symphony?
  16. I'm debating getting VOOM S&S for my Symphony cruise in September. Has anyone had it recently on that ship and could tell me if it worked well? I was on Grandeur a couple of weeks ago and it was slow. It worked fine for checking email and playing Words with Friends, but for streaming Netflix, no. I had an inside cabin and will also have an inside on Symphony - would that make a difference?
  17. We will be sailing on Symphony in October and would like to know the good or the bad about the restaurants. Is Hooked good? Is Chops or any of the others worth the extra money? We have sailed all the other Oasis ships but have been doing Celebrity the last few years. Wondered how these restaurants are. Which would you recommend? Thank you,
  18. We’re considering the Symphony of the Seas. It looks amazing with so many activities and entertainment options. But I can’t seem to find a list of what activities and entertainment are complimentary vs. an additional cost. Can someone point me in the right direction?
  19. This might be a little long - sorry but I detailed each night Hello – we (DH, myself and 3 other couples) just got back from the 4/27-5/4 Symphony cruise. DH and I had the new UNLIMITED Dining plan – the others had the BOGO and then bought Izumi and a Chops dinner. First things first, the others bought the BOGO because they were told by Miami CS that they could use it for Izumi – once on the ship they were told they could not…so, they had to buy Izumi for the 3rd night (Our TA bought the Chops on Night 6 for everyone – except us, I told her to save the money since we had UDP, it would be covered). Night 1 - we all had Jamie’s Italian. The food was plentiful and pretty decent for mass market Italian – little better than Olive Garden. (The Charcuterie board was really good). Night 2 - we all had Chops (originally wanted to do Izumi but was not covered under BOGO for the others in our group) this night service and food were excellent – night 6 not so much but more on that later. Night 3 - we had Izumi – the others had to pay for this night, it was covered under our unlimited plan - but only for the $45 entrees – DH and I both got the $49 selection so we paid the difference. Night 4 - DH and I separated from the group and did Hooked. I had the whole Maine Lobster and DH had the Blackened Halibut. My Lobster was on par with the thousands of Whole Lobsters I have eaten in my life and I had NO complaints, except with the sides – the cheesy crabmeat was NOT good and the caramelized butter was the weirdest thing I have ever tried. Hubby LOVED the Halibut – was cooked perfect and the seasoning was delicious (I tried it too). We had the Oysters and Mussels for the apps and they were both VERY good - we told our waiter we did not need the sides of Corn and fries but he brought them anyways. Night 5 – DH and I had 150 Central Park. We have never eaten here before but we were told they have recently ended their partnership with a "Celebrity Chef" and have a new Menu. I had heard the old format was a 6 course tasting menu – this was not and it was EXCELLENT. We had the Tenderloin for 2. Service was wonderful, food was the best we had all week. Night 6 – back to Chops, it was bought before the cruise by our TA. Tonight we had a different waiter who was little slower than the one we had night 2. We all tried something different on the menu – I had the Filet and Lobster tail on Night 2 and that was good. I had the Ribeye on this night and it was not as good a Ribeye that I can get at Texas Roadhouse here at home…Hubby had several pieces of Ribeye that he could not chew L. Another in our party had to send back his Filet as it was not cooked properly. Sides are served family style and they were really good. Night 7 – we saved the best (most entertaining) for last…WONDERLAND. DH and I had been watching YouTube videos leading up to the cruise and we were really looking forward to this meal. The introduction to the meal from our waiter was a little confusing, he could have explained the process a little better but it may have also been a language/ accent barrier that we just did not understand what he was telling us. We got our menu and painted them to reveal our options but then our waiter asked for any dislikes or allergies when we said we had none and we like everything – he just told us what he was bringing us and did not give us a chance to request something. Now to be fair to him – everything he brought was wonderful but we also did not try a few things we had thought looked interesting on the menu. We ended up being very happy with the whole meal!! The Mad Hatter was just silly and sassy enough – not over the top but not understated. So, for the first cruise EVER – we NEVER ate in the main dining room – not once. We had breakfast most days from the Vitality Café in the gym. Hubby would grab a few mini focaccia sandwiches and a cappuccino (VERY good). Once we ate at Johnny Rockets and had pancakes and once we ate in the Solarium Bistro and then the last morning we ate in the Windjammer (should have just grabbed sandwiches from the Vitality Café.) Also included in the new UDP was Playmakers (we ate here 3 days for wings and nachos), plus we ate at Johnny Rockets and Hooked for lunch once each (also covered). So for $199 per person – we got our money worth and would buy it again!! I know tipping is a controversial topic but just to add more info for you – we tipped at every restaurant (yes, I know it is added at time of purchase but we left extra anyways). Happy to answer any questions.
  20. Are there those few extended CP balconies on Symphony like there are on Oasis/Allure? (those ending in 229 and 629) I see the white space next to them on decks 10 and 11, but can't be sure if it's the same. I see they've added cabins on decks 12 and 14.
  21. I'm starting my pregame Symphony 5/11 to 5/18 review. Is anyone on this sailing, if so here's a shout out to join this review! The cruisers are myself, wife, son and daughter. I do have VOOM for the week as part of staying in a Grand Suite so I'll try to update this review as it's happening but it's going to be a busy week. Sunday is mother's day, Tuesday is my son's 12th birthday, and Wednesday is our 20th wedding anniversary! So I'm coming from Ithaca, NY which if you know the area there is NO easy way to get to anything. So here's our crazy schedule and plans to get to the port! We leave our home Friday morning at Zero Dark 5am (ouch) and drive to Trenton, NJ airport (yeah I didn't know they had one either until 3 months ago 🙂 ). We board a flight which takes us to Fort Lauderdale, FL arriving around 2:45pm. I know what you're thinking, doesn't Symphony sail out of Miami? Yes it does, but the flight from Trenton for the four of us was ridiculously cheap (around $600 if we all agree to pedal) and only went to Ft. Lauderdale. So here's where the craziness kicks in... I first looked into Uber/Lyft/Taxi option to a hotel near the port but they were all crazy expensive. So using my Avis preferred status I rented a car at the Ft. Lauderdale airport ($35 one way) and will drop the family off at a hotel in Miami (that offers free shuttle to the port) and then will return the car to the Miami airport and take free shuttle to the hotel. So it will be a crazy day of traveling but who cares we're going on a CRUISE! Let's get this party started!!!!
  22. The first Chef's Table we ever attended was during the first year of sailing for Oasis of the Seas and it was outstanding! We hope to attend again on our cruise on Symphony of the Seas on June 29. Does anyone know if Symphony has Chef's Table available? I cannot find it listed anywhere on the RCCL web site. Thanks, JackN
  23. I just got back from seeing Hairspray on Symphony. Our roll call which started long before the show was announced for Symphony. I never have seen this show and didn't know anything about it. On boarding I heard the CD talk about it being an Enhanced version. As I watched I was impressed with some of the innovative technical set improvements over what I save seen on other cruises. I wonder if this was the only change? That said, I liked the show, the set helped. I thought the singing and acting were good. I'm glad I saw it.
  24. Is Cafe Promenade the only place for speciality coffee? Nothing in WJ or Park Cafe?
  25. Just wondering which days on symphony are formal nights? we are going on 7-night western in September. Thank you
