  1. Thank you so much for the wonderful reviews. We'll be boarding on Sunday, and I will certainly look forward to spotting the two "Summit Celebrities" (pun intended) that I've enjoyed following all week.
  2. Thanks to all for the quick responses!
  3. We will be traveling on the Summit with my Mom, who uses a wheelchair. On the deck plans, I don’t see elevators to either of the deck 12 venues, the rooftop terrace and the retreat. Does anyone know if that deck has some means if access other than the stairs?
  4. Depends on the class of suite you’re talking about. I have often found that the royal loft and royal family suites cannot be booked online, and their way of controlling that is to say there are no such cabins available. If it was a regular suite, agree that it sounds like a website glitch Sent from my iPad using Forums
  5. I know mom and dad are paying for the cruise and therefore should have the better accommodations (and a little privacy) but have you considered putting the kids in the bedroom “upstairs” where the beds can be separated and having mom and dad take the couch (which cannot be separated, as I recall)?

  6. If you want the spa treatment on a sea day, go ahead and book online. But if you are okay doing it on a port day, you will almost certainly get a better deal by waiting for the specials on board. Sent from my iPad using Forums
  7. I gotta tell you, weirder things have happened. On a cruise on the Oasis a few years ago, my niece was one of the kids selected to go on the ice for the ice show. Unfortunately, our camera battery died at that precise moment. A few weeks later I was reading the boards and a total stranger mentioned in his report on what he did on his recent cruise that he had seen the ice show on our sailing and had taken a bunch of pictures. Long story short, one of his pictures included my niece and he was kind enough to email it to us. I know it’s not the same thing, and really have no opinion either way on what the original poster should do or have done, but just on the point of whether it’s too great a coincidence for the post to be seen by the owner of the lost property, I can attest that such things do happen.

  8. Agree on Monarch, but it’s probably because she was my first cruise ever. Looking back now, though she was great for her day, the cabins were tiny and facilities nothing compared to today’s mega ships, including my current favorite, Oasis. Least favorite: Anthem. Sent from my iPad using Forums
  9. Have been on both ships, although the cruise on the Triumph was a decade ago, I think. Nonetheless, I would have recommended Triumph over Anthem EXCEPT for the extra night. Especially if you’re leaving from NY in any season other than summer, you really do lose full use of the ship facilities (like the pool) for a day or two at the beginning and end of the cruise. My reasons for otherwise favoring Triumph are that in my experience it handles the rougher waters of NY better (we actually sailed back into NY during hurricane Floyd and really didn’t notice it much at all) and we found the Anthem cruise to be boring (by cruise standards, that is, which IMHO is still better than any other vacation out there). Sure, Ifly is interesting for the five minutes you’re in it, but it was the very first ship on any line that we wouldn’t bother going on again. Having said that, the extra day more than makes up for the difference, so in this case I’d take the Anthem. Sent from my iPad using Forums
