  1. How do you know your Muster station already? I have always looked at the notice on the back of our cabin door to find the information.
  2. Royal are still inviting us to bid, we sail in 9 days. If no one has bid for the suites, do they upgrade at the port?
  3. 4 now, that I have signed up. Thank you you for the link that worked: https://secure.royalcaribbean.co.uk/ccRegister.do
  4. Last year on Silhouette, we were able to get a drink in the MDR, by presenting our card, provided it was before 7 pm.
  5. The link is broken: Internal Server Error - Read The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request. Reference #3.c39fea5.1566367642.1406ea7c i was sent a letter just one week ago informing me that there were sufficient people registered for the M&M to go ahead on our sailing on 31.08.19 As there is no way for me now to sign up, I will just get on with my packing.
  6. I haven’t been upgraded, Elite on Celebrity are Diamond on Royal. My query was not answered; ‘What are the options for lunch on embarkation day?’ Is it just the Windjammer, or is the MDR open for lunch? Does the Diamond Lounge have snacks at lunch time?
  7. Options for lunch on embarkation day? We are Diamond via Celebrity, so very new ( only sailed on Splendour if the Seas In 2001). Just wondered if the MDR was open, or is it only the Windjammer? Are any snacks served in the Diamond Lounge? Thanks.
  8. Priority tendering was the reason we took a 2 day repositioning cruise from Amsterdam to Southampton to become Elite before our 14 night Southern Caribbean cruise in 2013. We had previously spent 3 HOURS trying to get on a tender in Split. When I complained, I was told we should have taken a ship’s tour! I must admit that I still avoid tender ports if at all possible. i also like the Elite breakfast. This can vary depending on the number of Elites. If few, they pre plate the food ( as on Silhouette 2018). If more Elites, they provide a buffet. The attached picture is the Ultimate platter, (less the cheese, as I am Dairy Intolerant), but they also have a cheese and fruit platter. We have never just had one location for Elite Happy Hour. Our first Elite cruise was in 2013 and we often went to the Ensemble bar for our free drinks. No nibbles, but often a string trio played. It is also very convenient for dining as it is on deck 5.
  9. Oh wow. So glad your friend was able to continue her cruise. Great ship’s crew. Also well done to the Hermitage for going through their trash.
  10. If the re location had anything to do with the political unrest, they would already have made changes to the 2019/2020 Dubai- Singapore winter itinerary.
  11. I disagree, we are Elite on Celebrity, so Discoverer on Azamara. We sailed on Quest TA 09/09/16. We earned more points for a balcony room on Azamara (5) whereas we only earn 3 per night on Celebrity. We were invited to a cheese and wine reception at the beginning of the cruise. Also an officers brunch near the end of the cruise. The only event on Celebrity was the Senior officers ‘party’ between dinner sittings, so we certainly didn’t want any nibbles, as it was too close to our evening meal.
  12. Is this only on Independence? Just wondering what the show is on Explorer of the Seas, leaving Southampton 31.08.19.
