  1. I'm definately bringing a refillable bottle for myself. The bottled water is for my husband who has a heart condition and can't have much sodium. I've heard that the onboard water may have a higher sodium content as it's made from sea water and it's not a risk I want to take. I will look in to the shuttle, thanks!
  2. We will have a private driver from the airport in Rome to the port. I'm wondering is it possible to get dropped off at the ship with our bags then go back in to the town for some pizza and gelato and to hit up the grocery store for some water and wine(going RCL so allowed to bring some in carry on)?
  3. I wonder how long the navigator dry dock was? A similar upgrade and after cancelling a cruise because that one ran over I hope they booked off long enough for this! When I booked my June 2020 cruise over the holidays May 28, 2020 was the only May cruise scheduled. Now there are 2-3 more.
  4. Hopefully this truly is weather related and not the start of an "amped" trend... https://www.*****.com/2019/02/13/navigator-of-the-seas-first-sailing-cancelled-due-upgrade-delays
  5. Are the slides being added for sure? I'm hoping to benefit from the fun without the increase in kids...not that kids aren't great, but I'm leaving mine at home!
  6. It seems I've booked Explorer for her second cruise after her 2020 dry dock. My online searching has informed me that she is part of the Amplified program but not details of what this will mean for Explorer in particular. I figured I would start this thread to post updates of what will be done to this ship as they become available. I'm curious to know if they will be redoing the staterooms and what restaurants will be on board. I'll post any interesting links I find and hope others will do the same. Counting the days to June 2020!
  7. I am anxiously awaiting the Europe 2020 release date. Does anyone know when the sailing dates/ships have become available for booking in the past? Thanks!
  8. Hello All, I have been searching the forums trying to find a better crib/pack and play setup than smack in the middle of the room between the couch and desk. I have found this old thread: http://boards.cruisecritic.com/showthread.php?t=1841135 In it one poster puts the crib between the bed and the couch by removing the couch arms. Does anyone know how this is done? If we can put the crib all the way toward the outter wall we can use a shower curtain and magnets to build our toddler her own space- if she sees the TV there is no way she will sleep! 22 Days!!!
  9. Can the bed guru answer this question for 8606? I'm trying to figure out what to do with a pack and play as my nosey (will be) 17 month old will not sleep if she can see us, the tv, or basically anything moderately interesting.
  10. With the canadian dollar at a 12 year low I am wondering if anyone has any tips regarding savings on RCI (Oasis in particular). A few months ago I saw a thread about buying OBC before you leave at a much better exchange rate- does anyone know if this is still the case and how to go about it? I've noticed that the exchange rate on my cruise planner is better for drink packages by about $3 per day as of yesterday so I'm purchasing that before we leave in April if this is still the case then and hoping for more tips!
  11. What is the latest day you can buy a drink package on board Oasis on the Eastern itinerary? I'm hoping not to purchase one until day 3 if possible.
  12. I am booked in to cabin 8606, a D4 just after the hump. Has anyone stayed in this or a similarly situated room on Oasis or Allure? It appears on the map that the balcony is bigger than other D4 cabins? Anyone have any pictures? I know that I will have an obstructed forward view and I'm fine with that.
  13. Hello All, I'll be stopping in Nassau on Oasis of the Seas in April 2016. I am interested in seeing the aquariums and dig at Atlantis and then hanging out on a beach if there is any time left. The cost for a shore excursion from the ship for this is over $100pp and we will have an 18mth old with us so we would rather be on our own in case we need to go back to the ship. My question is if the passes for the aquarium/dig sell out or if they are unlimited and what is the cost of such a pass? Also, I am under the impression that there is a public beach near Atlantis that we could go to if we have some extra time- is this correct?
