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....

Let me save you some time and sum up the Texans-Colts game for you: Luck passes for 420 yards and 5 TDs. JJ Watt has a sack. Final score: Colts 42 - Texans 13. Now you have three extra hours to...

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.

Great (loooong) article in The New Yorker about RCI cuisine

I just read a great (albeit typically loooong) article in The New Yorker about feeding 6000 people with excellent food. The article is really fair and largely very positive about feeding so many...

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...

According to Royal Caribbean's contract of carriage, each passenger can bring...
