  1. Does anyone know what the special/theme menus are in the Windjammer for dinner on Symphony of the Seas? And what schedule is? I promised the kids we would have dinner there at least one night and want to make sure we pick the correct night to go there. Would prefer seafood or bbq night. Thanks!
  2. We'll be on the Symphony of the Seas end of July and one of our ports of call is San Juan, Puerto Rico. Planning to take the city tour and I typically book shore excursions through the ship, but the 8am tour start time is a little early for our group with age spread from 7 to 77. Does anyone have feedback on booking shore excursions on their own? Especially a city tour that starts a little bit later. I will post this topic on the ports of call area too. Thanks in advance!

  4. I’ve been on the Allure, Mariner, Liberty, Radiance (2x), and Symphony in June. Outside of the formal nights, I’ve worn a nice pair of shorts with a polo or button down to the MDR and specialty restaurants multiple times. I was far from alone and never felt out of place. Gym shorts, swim trunks, etc., are definitely not appropriate in my humble opinion. I suit up for work five times a week and a vacation where I have to dress up is not a vacation to me. I pay way to much to not dress in what I am comfortable in. Those who claim people in shorts negatively impact their dining experience choose to be miserable and simply need to re-think what should matter and not matter. I for one could care less if someone at the table next to me showed up in a tuxedo or tank top. Wear what you are comfortable wearing during your well deserved and hard earned vacation. Don’t worry about what others think. Enjoy your cruise!
  5. Hey there Cruisers, Headed out on the Symphony on July 27. I’m interested in booking the BOGO Dining package, but only interested in doing so if I can book then second meal on Day 4 or later. I am fine with first meal on Day 1. Is the Day 2 strictly enforced or has anyone had sucess booking it on there nights? Also, I am would like to book Chops + Hooked or 150 Central Park. Will this be a problem? And is $52.99 a good price for this? Can this be booked onboard for a better price or is it better to book ahead of time? I need to book the 1 device Surf and Stream package for work. Is $14.99 a good price? Does this price ever fluctuate and is there any advantage in booking once onboard as opposed to now? Much thanks in advance for your feedback!
  6. From he experience on the Allure, they are strict. My youngest was within two months from joining my oldest in then 6-8 group and also taller than half the kids in that group as well. The staff stuck with the policy, which I respect.
  7. Just booked the Symphony from Miami to Labadee, Haiti / Philipsburg, St Martin / San Juan, Puerto Rico. Has anyone tried to travel to Labadee or Philipsburg with just a US Passport card? Trying to avoid bringing our passports if possible. Thanks!
  8. Hi all, Considering a Carnival cruise after cruising mostly with RCI and a couple times with NCL over the years. We have been very happy with both RCI and NCL. Can anyone provide any feedback as to how Carnival compares to them as far as condition of ship, overall cleanliness, overall service, food quality, kids activities, onboard prices, onboard activities, etc.? My initial research seems to point in the direction of them being comparable, but I am interested in hearing from those who are more familiar with Carnival. Thanks in advance!
