  1. Hey everyone, Looking to book Majestic Princess in december, my TA offered cabin M704 which happens to be on deck 15 underneath the Lido deck. I was once told to avoid these cabins due to the possibility of noise on the upper deck, would this be an issue on the Majestic? We had a horrible experience on RCL's FOS last year due to excessive noise (on deck 2) and I wouldn't want to repeat it! Thanks
  2. I will probably book a balcony stateroom on Solstice out of Sydney in december, just wondering which side of the ship offers the best views of the Harbour bridge and the city on sailaway? Thanks
  3. Thanks for all your replies! It's been really helpful. I'm really leaning towards the New Caledonia/Vanuatu itinerary, we might fly direct to Melbourne because we've never been, spend a few days and then make our way towards Sydney for the cruise.
  4. Hello all, I'm considering both the Ruby Princess on december 5th to New Caledonia/Vanuatu and the Majestic Princess to Melbourne/Tasmania on december 7th for my girlfriend's 30th. I'd like to know the pros and cons of both itineraries and ships. Both routings look absolutely beautiful and I'm torn between the two. We have never sailed with Princess and will be travelling with two kids age 4 and 5. I'm looking at a balcony cabin or maybe a mini suite. Thanks!
  5. It's all a matter of personal preference but as far as I'm concerned next time it will be a no. We've done 2 cruises with RCL and purchased the package both times. On Freedom last september a 42$ package set us back 915$ CAD for 7 days after tips and exchange rate. We can drink quite heavily while on vacation but after a few beers and overly sweet cocktails we felt like we didn't get our money's worth. We also like to have a some wine for dinner but what's included in the package is sub par and didn't feel like paying extra for a decent glass of wine. In the future we will bring our own 2 bottles and purchase any extra wine by the glass.
  6. A colleague will be on a 5 day sailing aboard Liberty in a few weeks, she was told by RCCL that she won't be able to buy the Deluxe alcohol package aboard after the first day of sailing, is this something new? I was on FOS in september and if I remember correctly we were allowed to purchase the package at any time during the cruise. Thanks
  7. We went to Giovanni's and had a table outside in central park, it was amazing. We tried babysitting (1 & 2 years old at the time) and that only worked for an hour or so, we had the kids with us in their strollers for the remainder of the meal, we will be going back for sure next time we're on an Oasis class ship
  8. Would anyone happen to have a recent wine menu from the main dining room on Freedom? I'd like to know what to expect. Thanks!
