  1. Certainly wouldn't be the first (nor last) time. Being kicked out of the CL/SL just gave me the incentive to cruise more... One more solo night and I'm IN!
  2. I've been wondering about keeping the 3 drinks during Happy Hour time on the Diamond's Sea Pass Card and having the Diamond (Plus) Lounge for D+ and Above. That would eliminate 1/2 the folks in the Lounges for distancing but still allow Diamonds to get their free drinks at any bar. Just mentally trying to solve Royal's crowding issue.
  3. I've sailed on the Grandeur quite a bit (mostly during the winter) and really like the ship. Next to the Radiance class the Vision class ships are my favorites. Very friendly staff. The weather on deck can be chilly (maybe cold to some) but the solarium where the adult pool is located is warm and cozy. My cabins have nearly always been midship and I don't think ever in the bow but I have never noticed any excessive rocking. I have been on the Harmony and I did not like the layout or the size. Even my very athletic 14 year old granddaughter, who was with me, hated the long lines she had to stand in to enjoy all the activities ( slides, flowrider, ice skating, etc.) Love sitting up in the Viking Crown Lounge or on Deck 6 aft and looking out over the seas. Lots of glass to enjoy the cruise even if you are in an inside cabin. Hope this helps... Think we might be on the same cruise in Feb.
  4. I have used luggage forward 3 times ... 1st time was with hubby, who was partially disabled, and we were spending a few days in Venice before embarking on our cruise. The idea of trying to get that large suitcase to our hotel and then to the ship was rather overwhelming so we decided to opt for the rather heavy expense of shipping it with luggage forward. It was easy and wonderful to find the suitcase in our cabin when we got on the ship. Since my husband's death, I have opted to use the service 2 other times (always overseas) and have been happy with everything but the expense. I am planning to use it again (just for one suitcase) in a few weeks when I sail on a TA from Copenhagen. From the beginning of booking the cruise, I just planned on paying the shipping expense.
