    I've watched the tour videos. It looks to me like there's way more comfortable places to relax than on some of the other ships.
  2. I'm a brewer. Beer kept out of the light should be fine. Exposing it to light or air will skunk it. That's why beer in clear bottles is crap, it's way more likely to be bad.
  3. @eroller - I'm sorry to be dense, but how are you getting visibility into their bookings?
  4. How do you know it wasn't sold out?
  5. It looks like you can just put your suitcase in the closet, under the hanging rod. There should be enough room that any long things still have a spot they can be. When I was in Japan, our hotel room had limited space. That was what we did to get the suitcases out of the way.
  6. That looks like a one hole-er to me. It would seem maybe they have various single serve restrooms?
  7. The bathrooms have been reported as "small" and might be uncomfortable for cruisers "of size." My husband is now concerned the showers are too small. If you could take a look at the width of the shower opening and possibly the measurements of the shower, that would be awesome. I know it's a strange ask, so no problem if it's too much.
  8. In the videos I saw, the windows were large and round. I think the spaces looked dark because the weather in Dover was dark. I'm curious to see how that will all change when we get shots from the Caribbean.
  9. I'm looking forward to it. 🙂
  10. I also tip well, but that's because I know people are paid less and then taxed at an assumed tip rate. If tips are included, I take that to mean folks are earning a living wage and therefore don't need tips.
  11. The menu's look f'n fantastic. I'm drooling.
  12. It also doesn't help that they're making them so big, that they're giant apartment buildings. There's no way to make that pretty and still have the same kind of capacity.
  13. There's a Brunch place and a coffee counter. I would imagine breakfast would be served in the not-a-buffet. I would also imagine some of those places serve breakfast and lunch. It would be silly to have them closed/unused otherwise.
  14. Their Instagram has 166k followers. I'm definitely seeing engagement there.
  15. I order a glass of water and drink some water, cleaning my straw. At night I give the straw a good scrubbing with hot water and the bottle brush I have for it.
  16. I've done this for friends when we're cruising as a group. It was pricey, but worth it to me to give them a nice surprise.
  17. I keep considering the Cheers! package thinking it might be easier. However, I've done the math after each cruise. My spouse and I just don't drink an average of $50 dollars worth of beverages daily. So until that math changes, no Cheers! for me.
  18. I usually try to park at a friend's place in Long Beach and then take a Lyft in. I've found it to be quite convenient.
  19. Not quite cracker-ie, but definitely less bready.
  20. My spouse and I went on a Disney cruise several years ago. It was a lot of fun, and we were travelling with friends who had kids. The biggest drawback for us was the schedule. We like to stay up late and sleep in when we're on vacation. They closed the buffet at 10:30am to reset for lunch and had no food options for late risers other than floppy pizza and tasteless burgers. The bars also closed early. It may have been midnight, but it felt like 10pm. The drinks in the Cadillac bar however, were amazing! Our bartender was fantastic. It was pricey, so we generally pick other cruise lines that mesh better with our schedule. I'm not saying I wouldn't try again though.
  21. The dresses are pretty cute. I also like the blue stripe T-shirt & pants. I'm looking forward to seeing better pictures of the entire line of uniforms.
  22. I'm sorry your friend had that experience. It's a shame that Royal Caribbean doesn't have a way to accommodate the names people want to use. I recommend writing a letter and seeing what kind of response you get. Hopefully they will make changes for future cruises.
  23. I'm not a fan of bitter (aka hoppy) beers. I like it when the hops used give it a good floral flavor. I'm curious why they didn't just go with a red. Although I'm guessing it's because the CA style heavy on the hops beer is currently the thing.
  24. It all looks like a proper spa to me. All the spa pictures I see show various little tubs and pools. How do you know one of them doesn't include jets?
