Royal Caribbean’s 50th Birthday Cruise on Symphony Of The Seas

Recommended Posts

I see that the L2 Crown Loft Suites are now (today) at the lowest price I have seen at $8,731 (for double occupancy). Wasn't this category just below $12,000 at final payment...or somewhere near that price? Compared to those who bought before, this is a great score. A bit out of my price range...even for the 50th birthday celebration...but a good score in comparison. Any chance of refunds due to the price drop?

Symphony for the Birthday/President cruise on 11/2/2019 out of Miami. The one with all the RCCL VIPs on it.

 

The only way to get a credit after final payment date is if you have booked within 48 hours of the price drop.

Same thing happened last year, huge drops late.

That sailing and the one before are on the GGG flyer

Really wanted to do that cruise - BUT the prices were insane.  I can do 2-3 cruises for that price.  So even though we did the President's cruise last year, we totally passed on this one.  Booked Freedom out of San Juan for the end of this month for a little over $1200 for the both of us.  Not paying $4000+ for a balcony to do the President/Birthday cruise, just plain not worth it.

I'm on Symphony the following week...Nov 9.  Had a $700 drop on a GS a couple of months ago.  I'm now after final but was able to upgrade to an L1 CLS for $450 (still $250 less than my original GS price).  An upgrade to an L2 would have only been $60.  

 

Definitely worth looking at prices before putting in a Royal Up bid.  The min bid to go from a GS to a CLS was $400pp. 😲

Any thoughts?

 

They seem better than past artists

Hall and Oates are fabulous. We just saw them at Amway (Orlando) last year. This is an event worth attending for those onboard. I’m only guessing, but I suspect they will be performing on one of the island stops (Coco Cay?). 
 

And yes, with the possible exception of The Wild Boys, Hall & Oates would be by far the best entertainers brought in for a President’s or Birthday Cruise.

 

The Gipsy Kings were pretty good too (Freedom). We actually saw them again later the next year at the St Augustine Amp.

The Journey cover band was very entertaining.

No, I can't go for that.  No can do.😉

 

It's getting better, but still not who I would pay extra for.

I really enjoyed Billy Ocean on Labadee during last years President’s cruise!

 

To many Ocean Potions for me

Not yet... maybe later today.  Massive head cold now on day 9 and hopefully rounding the corner.  That's what I wish for every morning when I wake up.

Yes, there was an excessive amount of those Ocean Potions imbibed from the Visa party for sure! 😁

We enjoyed The Wild Boys. If you follow them online, they are becoming a regular in the UK and some other Royal cruises. They are expanding their repertoire.

Do you think they will do again like last year, no reservations either at Coco Cay or on ship with theater only for Diamond Plus & above.

Now that is a Pinnacle perk. No need to book the shows in advance, other than comedy club.

 

They end up juggling the performance around anyway. 

 

I'm not sure I'd do this cruise if I wasn't at least Diamond. 

 

BTW, here is the show schedule from last year.

Oh dear- woe is me-daughter is diamond -I turn diamond mid week.

So look for me alone crying in my beer at some bar on the ship.

Went to the same concert... I thought Tears for Fears were much better. H&O sounded too much like they do on their records... I could have stayed home and just listed to those instead...

Hall & Oates a Definite upgrade from past entertainment.
