  1. Do not worry about your Salads on Royal Ships. Watched a show last year 'Mega Ships' and they showed the galley operation, of interest was the processing of Romain and other greens used in salads... First they are cut/chopped up, then into a bleach bath (just enough bleach and long enough to get rid of any tiny nasties), then a final rinse, spin dry and ready for plating...
  2. Spring Break 2020 February 22 - April 18, 2020 Really Busy During March up to the 28th.... Only 4 Universities/Colleges on break from March 28 to April 4... This is from a Listing of 209 Universities/Colleges found online... We have done 19 cruises during Spring Break over the years. Mostly on the 3 & 4 Night Itineraries out of Orlando/Port Canaveral on Sovereign, Monarch, Enchantment and now Mariner. Booked 4 Night beginning March 23 on the Mariner... We are both 70+, so Spring Breaks are way in our past, however, where else can you see so many of our young adults having so much fun at one time. Spring Break on CoCo Cay... Now That's a party.... Dennis & Sue
  3. Do A Google Search For... where to send a complaint to Royal Caribbean ....
  4. Sorry for that extra zero.... I meant 2/2/2020 .... There is no sailing for the Edge on 2/20.... She's in Cozumel... Dennis & Sue
  5. That 2/20 Edge sailing departs Florida at 3:30pm... Check you set sail/boarding pass and you will probably see a note that you need to be checked in no later and 90 minutes before ship departure or 2pm...... I would check in as soon as you can arrive from you FFL flight...
  6. We are cruising the Mariner on DEC 30, 2019 and MAR 23, 2020. We have done those 3/4 day itineraries out of P.Canaveral about 28 times starting on the Sovereign in 2007. Really enjoy them and you can not beat New Years Eve/Day in Nassau/CoCo Cay... Saw a couple post about quiet places on CoCo Cay... Guess I'll take my IOS Device, Sound Cancelling Earphones and some Jimmy Buffet Albums ashore... That and a few CoCoLoCo's should make the day... Dennis & Sue
  7. Have you ever had the "stomach flu?" What you probably had was gastroenteritis - not a type of flu at all. Gastroenteritis is an inflammation of the lining of the intestines caused by a virus, bacteria, or parasites. Viral gastroenteritis is the second most common illness in the U.S. The cause is often a norovirus infection. It spreads through contaminated food or water or by contact with an infected person. The best prevention is frequent hand washing. Symptoms of gastroenteritis include diarrhea, abdominal pain, vomiting, headache, fever, and chills. Most people recover with no treatment. The most common problem with gastroenteritis is dehydration. This happens if you do not drink enough fluids to replace what you lose through vomiting and diarrhea. Dehydration is most common in babies, young children, older adults, and people with weak immune systems.
  8. How does someone's niece decide they are going to maybe go on a cruise with their aunts & uncles ??? If you do decide to take her, remember to bring some documentation from her parents that you have permission to take a minor not your daughter out of the country...
  9. I would agree with that. I hope you made your feelings known to Celebrity in some manner...
  10. Have not seen this answer, so here it comes or goes... Do you want to see where you are going or do you want to see where you've been...???
  11. Captain William S. Wright brought the Oasis from Turku, Finland. While exiting the Baltic Sea, the vessel passed underneath the Great Belt Fixed Link in Denmark. The passage under the bridge was possible due to retraction of the telescoping funnels, and an additional 30 cm (12 in) was gained by the squat effect whereby vessels traveling at speed in a shallow channel will be drawn deeper into the water. Approaching the bridge at 23 knots (43 km/h; 26 mph), the ship passed under it with less than 60 centimetres (2 ft) of clearance.
  12. The cruise was delayed, not cancelled. You are actually not entitled to any compensation... The Standard Cruise Contract says in Para 6 6. CANCELLATION, DEVIATION OR SUBSTITUTION BY CARRIER: a) Carrier may for any reason at any time and without prior notice, cancel, advance, postpone or deviate from any scheduled sailing, port of call, destination, lodging or any activity on or off the Vessel, or substitute another vessel or port of call, destination, lodging or activity. Except as provided in Section 6(e) below, Carrier shall not be liable for any claim whatsoever by Passenger, including but not limited to loss, compensation or refund, by reason of such cancellation, advancement, postponement, substitution or deviation. e) In the event that a Cruise (or the cruise component of a CruiseTour) is canceled or terminated early due to mechanical failures: i) Passenger shall have a right to a full refund of the Cruise Fare if the Cruise is canceled in full, or a partial refund if the cruise is terminated early; ii) Carrier may cover or reimburse Passenger for additional costs (e.g. airline change fees) as deemed appropriate by the Carrier . iii) If the passenger has travelled to the Vessel Passenger shall have a right to transportation (by means selected by the Carrier to the Vessel’s scheduled port of disembarkation or the Passenger’s home city; and iv) Passenger shall have a right to lodging (selected by the Cruise Line) if disembarkation and an overnight stay in an unscheduled port are required due to the Cruise or cruise component of a CruiseTour being cancelled or terminated early because of such mechanical failures.
  13. We were in 9618 (outermost hump) in July... Loved it... No Noise problems. Dennis & Sue
  14. I've always liked staterooms on Decks 7 and 8... Mainly because decks 6 and 9 are also all staterooms and there should be no noise issues like being above deck 5 or below deck 10.... Lifeboats on deck 5 should not be any problem with views... We have cabin 8032 booked for the 2020 Reunion Cruise: Maine and Canada departing Cape Liberty 5/28/2020... Looking forward to it... Dennis & Sue
  15. Bombay Saphire Martini (Dirty)... I guess they're not considered 'Hard Core' Martinis but you can try the following at the Martini Bar... Chocolate Martini Espresso Bean Martini Black Forrest Martini Brandy Alexander (Equal Parts Cognac, Dark Creme De Cacao, Heavy Cream shaken and served in Martini Glass with a sprinkle of Nutmeg). Etc. Etc. Etc....
