Hope it doesn't ever apply to you, but.....the Medical Centre on RCI's ships are excellent. X-rays, various 'tests' and an ICU...which I was in.

The Medical Centre is usually found on deck 1. Doctor and staff are brilliant.

Thank goodness for travel insurance 🙂

That is correct! I got norovirus onboard Harmony. I went to the onboard medical center and they were fabulous. I had a combo Norovirus and acid reflux right after drinking a Johnny Rockets shake. Really sick. They gave me all meds, did EKG because I had chest pressure, IV to rehydrate due to vomiting, free food that was bland that I could order, and they were fabulous. A year prior my friend was quite ill onboard and she did not go to the Med center. Costly pills from the little store onboard, miserable for 3 days, no option on food. Not a good move.

Hi, My Fiancee and I are going on a cruise next spring for our honeymoon, she will be 20, and I will be 21, I am getting th Deluxe drink package, and I am wondering if I am able to bring drinks back to our room? Would I also be able to bring bottles of wine back to our room?

Check age limits on drink package.  RCI  sets alcohol age at 21 for North America ports.

Welcome to CC.

 

Wear what you feel comfortable in.

it is my understanding it is your choice to participate with formal night. We used to, but really don't anymore.

I suggest that she bring flats for formal night- people do still dress up-  Some do eat a buffet or their cabins and do skip the festivities offered but why?  Enjoy all the evening has to offer.  Hard to believe that flip flops are more comfortable then flats.  Not exactly Jimmy Choo spike heels.

Has anyone paid the extra fee and got the lobster at Chops Grille?  Is it worth it?

Just got off Enchantment OTS a few days ago. Talked with a couple that had eaten at Chops, because I was wondering the same thing. They said the food was alright, but it was kind of bland. If you absolutely want lobster, check the price that the main dining room is charging for lobster & go with the cheapest of the two. Also, check the menu of each meal (most RCI ships have the Royal Caribbean app which you can see the menu for the main dining room more than a month ahead of your sailing date), including your sea day lunches that are available in the main dining room. They will sometimes have entrees that include lobster tail. One of my previous sailings aboard Enchantment had lobster tail mac & cheese.

We like the steaks at Giovanni much better than Chops.  Lobster is OK at either. They usually have it in the dining room one night on the main menu and you can order more than one at a time as they are not very big.

Traveling with a 9 month old. Will he get his own ship card? I'm his nanny and we are trying to figure out if mom and dad have their ship cards off the ship how do we get into their room for naps if he doesn't have a ship card himself... also has anyone gotten a crib on board? It's already requested for the rooms but trying to decide if it's just wroth bringing our travel crib! thanks!

Look on the CruiseCritic website to find the sq ft of your stateroom to check of the travel crib will fit or be in the way while the stateroom (or suite) is occupied. I’ve never seen a crib onboard. I know some cruise lines provide travel cribs. I have friend who requested one on a Carnival cruise & the cruise line provided a regular crib (like you’d see in a daycare center), but it was all metal and had wheels on the bottom. Seemed unsafe to me since it had wheels & you wouldn’t want something that wasn’t so top heavy. The closer to the ground, the more safe it would be if the cruise is a little “rocky.” You could also call the cruise line or your travel representative & ask what kind of crib they provide.

 

As far as a SeaPass card, I don’t think the baby will be issued one, but you will be required to have one. That should be able to get you into the room. Unless you’re in a different stateroom. But you can always find a hospitality crew member on deck. If you inform the room steward, upon the day of your arrival onboard, that you’re the nanny, they should be able to let you into the family’s stateroom should you have any problems.

Hi guys!

 

I have questions about having internet onboard the Jewel. I know there is a Voom package, but it seems expensive to me, I only want to check my e-mails at sea days (two days). Is it possible to pay for internet during those two days? Or are there computers with internet that I can pay for a short time?

 

I hope I posted in the right place.

 

Thanks!

Yes, $23 per day. The RCOnline PCs would use that same login account.
