  1. We are not experienced cruisers however, this is exactly what we thought would happen. we are in the UK and due to sail out of Venice in October but I don’t think it will happen. Mainly because I am not convinced the ship will be in Europe and ports will be open.
  2. How do you find out cabin availability please? Thanks.
  3. We sailed Jewel last year and had a fantastic time. Good ship, port intensive. Great all round plus our 11 year old was looked after exceptionally well. This was July 2019. The minor downside is that it was baking hot in Europe! I am looking at Rhapsody leaving Venice but October this time. Are the ships comparable? Our son will be 12 this time. The cruise is slightly out of peak season but it is school holidays in the UK. Has anyone got recent experience of ROTS? many thanks.
  4. Thanks. That’s my concern. May be another plan then.
  5. So sorry, I seemed to press submit before I finished my post. It should be there now.
  6. Morning. We sailed on Jewel of the Seas in the summer and had a fantastic time. We are from Scotland and our cruise was Europe. Blisteringly hot but amazing ports and ship. Our holidays for 2020 are in October and we’ve decided on a trip to New York. There is a cruise. 9 nights to Canada and New England on Adventure of the Seas that we like the look of and the dates tie in with time off work and school. Our son son will be 12. I wonder if those in the know can tell me if you’d do this cruise at this time of year with a similar aged child? He loved kids club on Jewel in the summer. Plenty to do and other kids to meet with. July is peak holiday time for Brits so the ship was busy with varying kids ages. I am just not sure if there would be many kids on an October Canada cruise. Port days there seems to be plenty to do. Thanks.
  7. It was 8 am on our July cruise. All cabins had to be empty. Time off finished by 09.30 am unless suites or the new, stay for longer scheme.
  8. I’ve seen a cruise departing Dover on 2nd October for New York. There are a few ports but mainly sea days. Has anyone done transatlantic with Disney before? My main concern would be enough to do during the day, particularly as it won’t be warm, sunny weather. We would have a 12 year old boy with us. Thanks for any help you can give.
  9. If we wanted more than one drink at a time on our package we had to provide both cards. Your “friend” would spend a huge amount of time at the bar getting drinks and it would become very obvious. The only time I got more than one drink on my package was an alcoholic drink and a bottle of water.
  10. I’d love to see autumn which is what you call Fall. It would be so pretty. I wonder if there would be many kids on an October cruise. We we are just off a med cruise. It was so hot it took away the appeal of sightseeing new cities and stopping for lunch and having a glass of wine. My son likes to wander towns so if we can combine that with kids club for him, I’m sure he would be happy.
  11. I wonder if anyone has done this area with children? We are thinking either July or October next year. We we don’t want a warm weather cruise - neither does our son who would be 12 by then.
  12. I can only eat Low fat. I think I’m just going to ask for sauces etc on the side and hope to make good choices.
  13. The Daily Star is gutter press. My my husband flew in from a long weekend in Barca this afternoon. He saw nothing and felt safe.
  14. I like my stuff so take the lot. Don’t mind packing it or travelling with it. I can’t use ship stuff. Far too harsh.
  15. We have the deluxe drinks package booked. If we want fresh orange and a speciality coffee while having breakfast in Windjammer or the Main dining room, do we organise it ourselves or bring it with us or is it available in both places? is the main dining room open for lunch? thank you.
