  1. We are Emerald level but have been sailing different cruise lines for the last 6 years and Royal seems like a foreign place. Some basic questions: I know you can have 2 bottles of wine to carry on. How much soda? Does the soda need to be in cans or can it be in plastic bottles? We have MTD.... I'm getting mixed information. Do I have to make a reservation or set a specific time or can we go whenever we want to go?
  2. I'm seeing that it is recommended to reserve a specific time prior to the cruise. We will be sailing on the Radiance in November to New Zealand. I have no idea of when shows usually occur to even have an idea of when I'd like to dine. Can anyone let me know in general when are the big shows in the theater?
  3. Thank you Clarea! Great to know. For whatever reason I helped book a friend to join us on the cruise we were going on in February of this year and the rep I was dealing with had told me no refundable deposit option. RCI had always been one of our favorite lines, great to know.
  4. We use to sail Royal, but haven't sailed on a RCI cruise since 2013, we have been doing Carnivals because we can sail more going to New Orleans and not having to fly. We booked the Radiance back in early 2018 for a New Zealand cruise in November 2019. At that time and for that cruise there wasn't an option of booking with or without a refundable deposit.... it was refundable. I've been looking at 10 day cruises for next year so that we will make the Diamond level. I'm shocked that the deposits aren't refundable prior to the final payment. We are looking at $900 loss if we book now for a 2020 cruise in the fall and something happens within a year. We're in our mid 60's and not sure if I want to lose close to a 1000 bucks if one of us gets sick or injured in the next few months. The only thing I can think of is purchase our travel insurance the day I purchase the cruise.
