  1. We had an 11am flight last week from Barcelona to Dublin after disembarking Brilliance. Had a private taxi booked for 7.55am which arrived right on time and we were going in the airport doors at 8.20am. In my opinion this was just right in terms of time - we weren't rushed at any point ( worth noting there was quite a long line at security - took us maybe 30 mins to get through) and didn't have too long to wait anywhere . For a transatlantic flight you should maybe leave a bit more time - I would want to be getting in to my taxi at 7.00am.
  2. We have booked a Nellies Beach Cabana for our Adventure of the Seas cruise next July. I have a couple of questions - this will be our first time at Labadee. - The maximum number of guests is listed as 8 - there are 9 in our party - 6 adults and 3 kids - will they let us all in or do we need to book a second Cabana? -It is a standard Cabana we have booked (not overwater ) but is described as having direct water access - how far a walk is it from the pier ? Is there any carts / golf buggies etc - 1 of our party is not very mobile. - How far away is the buffet and how far away are the restrooms from the Cabanas? - Would you describe Nellies Beach as a good beach ? -It describes the Cabana as having a water cooler - is this stocked with water? Anything else I should know about these Cabanas please let me know!
  3. Thanks for the replies everyone. i specified an apartment , but of course it ccould be a townhouse. Not sure if that makes things easier or opens up other options? We are also looking at hotels , but quite liked the idea of all staying together! Any other options will be gratefully accepted!
  4. We are booked on Adventure of the Seas in July 2020 to the Caribbean from Bayonne. There are 3 families (9 people in total ) and we are looking for an apartment which will hold all of us in New York for 4 nights prior to the cruise. Any suggestions as to location , and the best company to book through? We have never used Airbnb - maybe worth a try in this case?
  5. How did I miss this??!! This is absolutely perfect , except that we will be on Adventure on those dates! I will look out for it in the 2021/22 release - it's the type of cruise you need to book on release - the prices for the 2020 cruise are eye watering!
  6. I would love RCI to put on a few cruises with stops in Iceland - currently it is only transatlantics. I might have to stray to Celebrity to get to Iceland.
  7. So does this mean Anthem and Indy will be in the UK for 2021 and 2022 after Indy was cancelled for 2020 ?
  8. We are another couple who love quantum class. Anthem and ovation are our favourite ships and faced with an identical itinerary on different classes of ship I would choose quantum class every time. We are on ovation again 2 weeks today. our first cruise was on Norwegian Epic which we enjoyed. 2 years later we booked anthem on her maiden season from Southampton - we didn't just enjoy it - we were blown away! To us it was a real step up from Epic. We have sailed royal ever since. I am also in the minority who wish for the return on dynamic dining! Forget the reviews and enjoy Ovation!
  9. Agree with the previous couple of posts. I have read several reviews from the 11 day and some from the current 7 day and they are overwhelmingly positive. We have booked for 14th June and I for one cannot wait!!
  10. Just want to check where you signed up for the $49 North Star experience at the glacier? Really want to book this.
  11. Just wondered if anyone has been to Jamie's Italian and asked for a gluten free meal? If so what was available or what could be modified? We are sailing on Ovation in a couple of weeks and I would like to book lunch , but my wife has celiac disease so I would need to make sure there is something she could eat before I boom for both of us.
  12. Our original scheduled arrival time back to Seattle was 6am (we are on the June 14th cruise) but that was updated a few weeks ago to 4.30am.
  13. Amazing review - so looking forward to 14th June. We have purchased Voom S&S - we will see how it goes - might be a visit to guest services!
  14. How is the food on the ship? Someone on "another site" said they weren't happy with the food generally - but food is so subjective. On other cruises we have always had some dishes we liked better than others , but overall really couldn't complain.
  15. Thank you so much for this live review. We are on ovation 14th June - we are from the UK and this will be our first time to Alaska so a real bucket list trip for us. We have been on Ovation before - the ship is perfect for Alaska . Hope chops was just a bad night as we are booked for dinner there one evening and usually enjoy it. Waiting impatiently for more posts!!
