Thoughts on nonstop flights to Galveston for RCCL cruises

I was down in Galveston a few weeks ago (not for a cruise), and I happened to swing past the airport there. It's about 1.5 miles from the cruiseport (probably a five minute ride on a shuttle bus)....

I agree that Per Se probably isn't for minors since it's about $400/per person.

I think it is great that you are taking your nephew. When I was a kid, my parents would rarely take us out to dinner, but when they did, they would take us out to very fancy places. This allowed us...

We booked the room about 10 months in advance. I forget what it cost for the five of us but it was definitely less than a Junior Suite. It was around $4500 if I recall. To me, that was a tremendous...

Can I bring two bottles of wine for the kids' room?

I reviewed Royal's policy on bringing wine aboard. It says that I can bring two bottles of wine per room. "Guests wishing to bring personal wine and champagne onboard may do so only on boarding day,...

We stayed in Serenade 1054 on a cruise last year. In a word: Phenomenal. Frankly, I don't want to say too much because then it will be impossible to ever book this room again. The room is ENORMOUS....

Any idea if the hot chocolate, like most foods/drinks aboard, is made from scratch, or is it out of a Swiss Miss-type packet? Just curious. My kids will drink it either way.

1056 isn't under the ping pong tables and the WJ outdoor seating. It's a little forward of that. It's right under some of the pool seating. We just got off Serenade in 1054, which is right next...
