  I know you can always show up outside the reservation but If MTD is from 6:00pm-9:00pm are you saying we could be sitting much earlier than that or were you thinking dinner starting at like 5:30pm?

On Ovation MTD starts at 5:15 so showing up at 5:45 for a 6PM reservation should not be an issue.

I'm on Allure and I emailed RCI Dining and was told ours was from 6-9 and the only way I could go earlier was to change to Traditional for the entire cruise. I planned on asking once on board anyway.  I just need the first night early to get some of the shows out of the way so we can "relax" more throughout the week.

Usually MTD starts earlier than traditional - you may ask in a Roll Call thread what others have for MTD, I have a feeling your MTD may start at 5:30.

If it does that would be perfect.....thanks for tip.  I'll go check in with our Roll Call.

Royal Caribbean does not currently offer any self service laundry facilities on board any of their ships. They do have complete laundry service available.

 

 

Here is a link to the current laundry prices.

So that would be $2.00 per pair of socks or underwear?

For dinner in the Windjammer with theme nights - are there also non themed food available?   For example on Indian night, will there also be more "kid friendly" things like burgers or even a normal salad bar available?  

 

Thanks

Diamond Lounge

Can anyone inform me if the Diamond Lounge is open during the day on Explorer of the Seas and also which deck it is on?

We are 1st time Diamond for our cruise on 31 August. I know that we will have 3 drinks loaded on to our card for use in any bar between 4.30-8 pm including the dining room, but I am hazy on the function of the Diamond Lounge. Can I go there for drinks during the day?

Thank you. So in the MDR is that all they can get with their meal?

 

Do you know how much 1 soda (like a Sprite or Cocacola) would be?

 

Thank you

We were able to bring 12 cans of soda on the ship & 2 bottles of wine and get wine glasses from room service by calling dining. I believe this is per cabin.

Explorer of the Seas.

Diamond perks not listed in the letter in the cabin.

4 bottles of complimentary water in the cabin on embarkation. This can be supplemented at the Diamond Happy Hour, but we didn’t find out about this until one week into our cruise.

The Letter said ’Have a drink on us.’

The free drinks were topped up continuously in the Diamond Lounge.

We were then able to use the 3 drinks loaded on our card in the dining room until 8.30 ( we were asked at about 8.20 if we wanted another drink).

Can someone tell me if RCI has upgraded their picture capability so that we don't have to purchase actual pictures and can get them digitally? It has been since 2016 that we have cruised.

That still depends on the ship, but most of them should be able to do that.

Definitely digital on Allure and the photo guy said soon they're going to stop printing them unless requested to do so

"Refreshment Package" question?  Bottled water and sparkling water are included.  Can I get San Pellegrino, Perrier, or Evian with the Refreshment Package, or are the brands of lower quality?  

 

I am new to Royal (just two previous cruises a long time ago), but am Elite Plus with Celebrity.  With Celebrity, we always get the Premium package, which includes the premium waters noted above.
