  1. Hi All, I have cruised with Royal Carribean only. I had a friend ask me for advice when booking her upcoming Norwegian Bliss cruise vacation. She wants recommendations as far as drink and dining packages. Her fiancé enjoys simple meals. The both drink alcohol. I would consider them the adventurous types. They will be cruising in April out of NY. Destination to Florida, Bahamas, and NCL private island. Please help. All advice welcome. Excursions, perks, what to buy, not to buy. I advised her to join cruise critic. I love these boards. I have learned so much. I checked out the Bliss online. Just may need to try this ship for myself one day.
  2. following. 44 more days until my next cruise, getting excited. great review so far
  3. following! Great review so far. You may have convinced me to try the packing cubes
  4. Not sure if I am helping here but I'll share my experience. We are booked on Oasis , May 2020. I had a room booked for 3. My son asked if he could bring a friend along. I had to book them in a different room and Was "forced " to switch my ocean view balcony to an ocean view balcony for 2. I tried putting 3 in my husbands balcony rom but his was for only 2 people. Only option was to change my room and book them in another room. I was told that I could not keep the original balcony that I had booked for 3 people because it was for 3 not 2.
  5. Following. Allure is my favorite ship so far. We sailed on the Allure July 14 of this year. SO good we booked Oasis May 2020 out of New Jersey. Have fun . great review so far
  6. We booked a land tour as well for Aug 2020. From what I have read in some posts that meals are on your own and to pick up snacks to bring on bus etc. I believe they serve food on train but I have not seen where meals are included. I would be interested as well. I see in my brochure where they give the names of the hotels but no mention of a meal being included. Hope I helped
  7. We have not cruised yet. Sailing Aug 2020 Northbound on Radiance. I booked the cruise and land tour through Royal. I went to AAA and asked for an Alaska Catalog. The catalog or brochure has explanations of each land tour. My husband likes things all laid out so this worked for us. We chose the 6A land tour which includes Kenai Fjords National Park Cruise, Alaska Native Heritage Center, Tundra Wilderness tour, Fairbanks City Tour, Riverboat discovery cruise, Rail between Denali and Fairbanks. I liked the idea that transportation and hotels are all planned out. It is just my husband and myself doing this cruise. I think that even looking at a brochure would give you some ideas as to what you may want to search for if you planned on doing it on your own. I don't think that Royal gives our the Alaska Brochures anymore but you could always call and ask. Hope this helps
  8. We booked an aft cabin on Radiance for Aug 2020 on the day the bookings open. I watched and waited. I hear that the aft balconies book up within one month of the itinerary opening up. Not sure if that is true but definitely sounds accurate
  9. Following. We are looking forward to our August 2020 Alaska cruise on Radiance. Wonderful review so far
  10. I have been told many times to book the day that the itinerary opens to get the cabin that you want. The aft balconies sell out fast. I was also told to do a land and sea cruise. We booked a north bound in August 2020 followed by the land portion. I picked up a book from AAA to help me choose the land portion that we liked. I have also talked with the next cruise folks when on board to get as much information as I could. Sometimes they have wonderful suggestions and flyers to take home to look at.
  11. I have cruised Anthem many times. Day one at 270 there will be activities staff available to sign folks up for shows and activities. I have also seen activities staff by the Bionic bar on certain days to sign folks up for shows and activities as well.
