  1. This would be great! The Jewel is a great ship! I’d love it if they had even just one ship that cycled through a series of itineraries, ranging from short 4-night cruises that included Catalina Island, to traditional 7-night Mexican Riviera or 10/11-night deeper Mexican ports (Zihuatanjeo?!) and a couple of round trip Panama Canal sailings. Be creative RCCL! Throw in a Celebrity ship doing something similar, but alternating to folks can alternate if the date they want doesn’t offer the itinerary they’re seeking. Also, RCCL is actively converting their fleets to accept shoreside pow
  2. The Port of Los Angeles is preparing a “Request For Proposals” from cruise lines interested in developing their Outer Harbor cruise terminal (Berth 46) at San Pedro. Link to the article is here: https://www.dailybreeze.com/2019/10/02/will-san-pedros-proposed-outer-harbor-cruise-terminal-encounter-smooth-sailing/ Recent rumblings from RCCL seem to indicate they might be interested in submitting a proposal, similar to work they’ve executed several times on the East coast...along with announcing (at least seasonal) ship deployments from the San Pedro/L.A. area. When clarification on w
  3. Also on the Royal Caribbean deployment front: “word on the street” is that RCI will be stationing a ship (possibly, more than one) in the L.A. area in the coming years. Fingers-crossed it’s a ship with non-coed spa amenities. 😉
  4. In the spirit of sharing some good information related to spa facilities, I’ll pivot to a land-based facility that I’d highly recommend: JW Marriott Desert Springs. If you should find yourself in the Palm Springs area, this resort currently offers day passes for approximately $35 for the wet area of the men’s locker room of the spa. You can stay as long as you like and the amenities include a handful of digital showers (and plenty more “analog” showers, including a large private ADA shower), very powerful 8-person steam room, mild 6-man sauna, 8-man indoor hot tub and (in my opinion, the best
  5. Fingers-crossed the steam and sauna on the EX remain the same after the refurb. Please DO let us know what you find, tonygcharles. 😉
  6. Thanks for the clarification and detailed info, twodjs. Disappointing RCCL (owner of Celebrity & Royal Caribbean) continues to remove these spaces from their existing ships as they refurbish and new-builds.
  7. Being an avid user of spa facilities (fitness equipment, steamroom, sauna, etc) and having traveled on a just a few lines (RCI, Celebrity, NCL), I was wondering what other cruise lines or ships have the best facilities. Describe facility configurations (amount of equipment, access, co-ed vs. men's only) and service-level (clean, well-attended, etc.) Thanks!;)
