John&LaLa Live B2B from Symphony 10/26 and 11/2, Great Expectations 🎂

Recommended Posts

I think John’s too polite to say it, but just a reminder to some folks responding to him.  Please don’t quote with photos attached, unless you have a specific question about one of them.

 

John asked at the beginning of his live review that we don’t do this. As a live reviewer I know that it is extra work/time to scroll through a quote with pics, so I know he will appreciate it if it could/would stop.

Agree.   I think this thread would be only about 6-7 pages without the repeats.  Hard for us followers to catch up too.

 

But, nevertheless we will continue to read.

VOOM Stream has been capped at about 4 Mbps for some time now, not sure why one would expect better than posted.

Oh I don’t use the internet on the ships but I know it must be getting more popular this day in age and would think they could cap it at 10mbps.

Well said Andrew!  Also, thanks for the info on the docking process/elevators that was actually pretty interesting and something I never would’ve known or thought about.

Symphony now

Oasis January 

Harmony February 

Allure March

I've heard "Living my best life", so this is what that looks like.

Laura was named for her aunt Laura.  She went by LaLa.

It became her Grandma name, 13 years ago. I'm Grumpy.

Am I the only one who wasn't sure if this was what the grand kids called him or just a general comment on mood?

 

As always loving the review.

Lover her facial expression.  The smirk.  Every picture of our dog she is giving side eye.

The cap been lowered a couple times since VOOM was established 5 years ago. The download speed is not that important once you get to the current limit, latency is much more important.

Hey Pat -- RCCL is releasing its May 2021-April 2022 7 night Caribbean schedule during the week of November 18, 2019.  Maybe SY will replace HM, which is going to Europe for drydock in April.  I expect HM to stay in Europe for the summer/fall but we should know soon.  The 7 day Caribbean release date has already slipped.  

 

Thanks Sherri.  I am waiting until first of next week to finish up my TP for 2021.  Right now I am dead ended in Honolulu.  😉  Would be cool to have Symphony in PC as well.  Still would love to see third ship come there.

Up till about 3+ years ago, folks were reporting up to about 25 Mbps on some ships - that's when throttling started. @twangster reported fairly high numbers on CocoCay recently, but I have a feeling that will eventually be throttled as well. Speaking of which, see if you can confirm that WiFi is free on CocoCay, without loging into your VOOM account.
