  1. We'll be arriving on the Allure OTS on February 20, 2020. We will be the only cruise ship scheduled that day. My question is, which of the piers will we dock at? On the maps I see Cruise Pier 1, Cruise Pier 3, Cruise Pier 4, and Cruise Pier 6. Anyone have any idea which one? TIA!
  2. Once again, thank you for the information 🙂 Much appreciated.....
  3. We last cruised RCI in 2015 (Serenade OTS out of NOLA). We're sailing on the Allure next February, and I was wondering what the process is to request a table for 2? We have the early dining selected, which I think means we will be dining in either the Silk or Grande MDRs. Do we contact the maitre 'd after we board to get a table for 2, or is it something we do when we are allowed to finish our in-processing at 90 day out? TIA for any answers you might have...
  4. Well, we were notified yesterday that our Feb 16 cruise on the Allure will be going to San Juan instead of St Thomas. A little disappointed, but we've never been to either port, so we still get to experience something new. We booked originally because we've never been on an Oasis class ship before, so we still have that going for us 🙂 But, with only 6 hours in port, we will probably not be doing an excursion. So, for those that have been to San Juan before, what is there to do near the port? I know the fort is close by, which I will probably be interested in. Is there shopping close by? Restaurants? Are there taxis available to go to other parts of the town? Any info you could give would be appreciated 🙂
  5. Thanks for the information. 🙂
  6. If anyone has been on the Sunshine since 5/17/2019, could you confirm who the CD is? The listing I have shows Adam Cornes as CD until October 10, when Michael Gibson replaces him.
  7. DW and I, along with our niece and her 11 month old daughter will be at Half Moon Cay August 26th. Are there beach umbrellas available for rental? Some shade for the baby would be nice....
  8. Hmmm, guess I'll buy them separately and keep checking to see if the price changes....
  9. They have offered a Soda plus VOOM package for our February Allure package. But, if you purchase them separately, they are actually $12 cheaper. It doesn't say on the web page, but I'm wondering if the VOOM package being offered is the Surf & Stream package, and not the Surf only package? That would make the package less expensive...
  10. So, wouldn't taking the Allure out for a week to fix the azipod problem have less economic impact to St Thomas that several months worth of missed port calls?
  11. We're booked on the Allure for February 16. Appears to me that RCI is trying to limp along without addressing the propulsion problem, hoping the other azipods will last until the March dry dock. Hopefully we don't see any "Allure Adrift At Sea Due To Propulsion Failure" headlines anytime soon....
  12. Tru dat 🙂 I think our biggest worry right now is the azipod problems on the Allure. Alot of summer cruises having their itineraries changed, droppping St Thomas or St Maarten, and substituting San Juan. Since the Allure is scheduled for dry dock in March next year, seems like RCI is trying to limp along til then...
  13. Good point about cancelling and reordering when price goes down. Thanks!
  14. A quick question for you seasoned Royal Caribbean cruisers. RCI has just posted the VOOM packages for our Feb 16 Allure cruise. Are the prices for these packages pretty well set, or will they fluctuate, like the Deluxe Beverage package does? Right now VOOM Surf package for one device is $12.99 per day, curious on whether it will stay at that price...
