  1. watched a youtube video made by two of the guest on that cruise, they sailed with less than 40 passengers. a step in the right direction but not quite what we are used to on royal lol ill link the video for anyone interested.
  2. It really does not making business sense for royal to pitch this way, keeping their prices seemingly super low on their web site then hooking you with the extras in your cruise planner or on board is much more profitable.
  3. will you get the double points if the cruise is already booked? I am 87 away from diamond plus, don't believe ill make it their, hoping to get at least 2 in this year. only 40 more years until i retire and do this full time lol
  4. i was booked on Allure Jan 17th of 2021 and found out 2 weeks ago it was cancelled bc it was being chartered that week. That's wild the amount of money companies spend to charter then, i might have to toss the idea around my job with upper management 😄
  5. P.S still taking request if anyone is looking for any specific information! tonight will be formal night i will let you know how many dress up since i know all of you love to know 😉
  6. Not much else on day one, pretty quick and painless muster drill, great dinner in the MDR (i did prime rib, cooked to perfection) then an adult comedy show by David Naster. He was pretty funny even though the crowd really didn't seem to appreciate his humor as much as we did, to each their own i guess! You guys can let me know if you want to see the daily cruise compass or not, i'm not sure how common this 8 night sailing to the ABC islands is so it might not be of too much use to many. Day two early morning: So i enjoy my coffee in the morning while the woman gets a little extra sleep,
  7. We stayed in hollywood Fl in an air BNB, ever since our first air BNB stay like 2 years ago we swore off hotels. this is such a better way to travel, cheaper plus all the luxury of staying in a home vs a hotel like having a kitchen, outside area, really what ever you enjoy you can find a place on air BNB with everything you love. ill keep this thread more cruise oriented unless people would like to know more about the air bnb i have tons of pictures and reviews and such just ask! 😄 Embarkation: so as i mentioned before we were traveling in a group of 18, about 11 of us had the same travel
  8. alright lets back track a little we had a long layover in LGA, me and the girl had lunch at rossie's it was like a pizza kitchen/bar style, got a pep pizza, a beer and a soda. Yes airport food isn't the cheapest but it was amazing! could have easily split it atleast between 3 people. The pizza was $22, my laganitas (craft beer) was 9 and the girls soda was 4. Not bad for the quality IMO!
  9. transferring pictures to the computer now, have one of the drink package but i will say it was defiantly cheaper pre booking it than booking on board
  10. For those who stuck around from my very premature start to this review/thread thank you and welcome to anyone who decides to jump on. It is time! i work overnights so am at work currently but will be out at 7:30 run home grab the Mostly packed bags (oops) and the woman and catch our ride to the airport. First flight departs here in upstate NY at 10:45 and unfortunately a long layover in NYC will make for a long day of travel but let me tell you the ends justify the means in this case! even though its been surprisingly warm for this time of year here 30s and 40s in still not my cup of tea..fo
  11. Just wanted to come back and update my situation if anyone was following from earlier looks like this got super long or even might have been merged but here's a quick update; Booked a guarantee inside for the first time, there was big price differences in the room category and this being an 8 night right after the holidays i was watching my spending. after i found out what room we were assigned i wasn't thrilled, ended up in a connecting room(not with ppl we know), deck two all the way at the front. got the royal up email 45 days out and had the option to bid on, promenade view, ocean v
  12. 59 is a decent price, i grabbed ours at 55 while others in the group caught a 48 that never came back (sailing in 2 weeks). as others said watch the price and book it at the price you think you can get the value from. just keep in mind if you see a better price you can cancel and re-book it but it usually takes about 10 days to get the refund from the first one so i would put it on a CC if you cant have both those payments withdrawn at the same time ! hope they have a wonderful time on their honeymoon sailing 😄
  13. how much influence would a captain have over the day to day service employees?
